Pepwave on international plan

I have a Pepwave BR1 hosting a LTE or WIFI network in my camper.  I also have 2 iPhones and and iPad on my plan.  Before leaving for Alaska I called Verizon to assure that everything would work in Canada.  Two days across the border and I get a $50 roaming charge for the BR1.  After two very frustrating conversations with Verizon I have removed the SIM card.  Verizon did roll back the charges but could only apologize and explain that my BR1, not having a phone number, was not eligible for international data.  Horse Hockey!  I guess I’ll just use my phone as a hot-spot for my BR1 to pickup WIFI and problem solved until I get back in the USA.
