Several laptops have LTE capabilities (like the Microsoft Surface), but Verizon told me I can't add one to my personal unlimited plan. They say the Surface is not considered a tablet, and therefore I would have to open a separate "Business Plan" to use it. Is there anyone out there who's had the same experience?
We certainly understand wanting to have a device on a plan you want. The device such as the Microsoft Service does have a requirement to be on a business account. We do have devices that do not require a business account. Those can be found here https://www.verizonwireless.com/tablets/
And how much would a business plan cost, for one user (myself) who already has a Get More Unlimited plan with you? I have already asked this question on the phone with 3 different Verizon personnel, but none of them knew the answer.
It's always good to have the right information when considering a move from a personal account to a business account. Exact prices can vary, based on the size of your business, so it would be recommended to contact our Business Team for the best answer.

I'm not a business. I merely want to use the LTE on a laptop. I don't understand why you treat laptops differently than tablets. From a data perspective there is no difference. Either someone exceeds their data allowance, or they don't. Who cares what kind of device they're using? I guess I will need to switch to AT&T, because they do not care what kind of device I use my SIM card in.
