An iPad is 10/mo vs smartphone 40/mo
I believe the iPad has to work in order to activate....

IINM you can put the account on hold if you're going on vacation for a few months. Not sure all the details, but worth looking in to.

You don't need an iPad, get any Verizon tablet. Look into a used ellipsis 7. You can suspend a line for up to 3 months at a time & 6 months per year, but this also pushes off your upgrade date for as long as you suspend it.

ETA: I'm pretty sure you only need 1 tablet. You should even be able to borrow one from somebody for a few minutes, you just need a different SIM card for each number.

will look into it- but both of these sound like a hassle for when I want to activate again

If you do this & those lines are in contract, you will be charged early termination fees.

fyi verizon only charges $5 a month for a samsung galaxy camera..  Don't know how much it will cost you to get a hold of one.. Just saying.
