Help! 3G USB Adapter

I am a current Verizon customer with a basic calling plan with pay as you go data plan (non-3g phone). I will be traveling soon and I want to add a 3g USB adapter to my netbook. Can I add the service to my plan on a temporary basis? Or as a pay as you go service? I've searched the web site and it is not helpful at all regarding this issue.

Re: Help! 3G USB Adapter

The mobile broadband plan page has listings for pre-paid USB Modem plans. I don't know if they require specific hardware or not,  but if your usb modem is usable with these plans they should be easy enough to add to your account.  Problem is, they aren't cheap and don't give a whole lot of data for what they charge.
