i am trying to add an ipad mini that was given to me to my existing account with verizon

I was given a brand new ipad mini for signing up for my masters at my school.  Of course they only have it set with the capability of using it with WiFi.  I called Verizon's tech support and asked if I could add the ipad to my existing account and use it with my plan and I was told that I could.  Does anyone know how to set this feature up?  Any help or answers would be greatly appreciated,especially if it works.

Thanks

That's your problem right there.  WiFi only means WiFi only.  You would need to get yourself a VZW Jetpack which can connect to the VZW network and broadcast a WiFi signal to your iPad.  They can easily add a Jetpack to your VZW account if that's what you want to do.

Unless this iPad has a cellular antenna and was born on the VZW network...it's not going to work.  You can't take a WiFi only iPad and connect to a cellular tower.
