Connected device plans are monthly data plans for your non-phone devices (i.e., mobile hotspot devices*, USB modems, tablets, laptops, smartwatches, security cameras, in-car Wi-Fi, and more).
You can get a connected device plan(s) if your Verizon mobile account has either:
- No phone plans - you'll pay the "standalone" plan price
Exception: To get our Essential or Plus plans for mobile hotspot devices and USB Modems your account must have at least one Unlimited phone plan that can be mixed and matched.
- At least one Unlimited mobile phone plan.
If you have a shared data plan, you don't need a separate plan for your non-phone device because the device can share your monthly plan’s data. A $10/month line access fee is charged for each connected device sharing your monthly data.
Note: Shared data plans are no longer available to be added to accounts.
*Mobile hotspot devices are different from the mobile hotspot app or built-in feature in smartphones and tablets. Visit our Mobile hotspot feature and app FAQs to learn more.
