    Prepaid Verizon data only SIM?

    I'm thinking of buying a MOFI4500 4G LTE modem / router for a very remote cabin. But I don't want to start a contract unless or until I can be sure it will work in that location. Data volume will be very low, and I don't really care about the speed.

    Are prepaid BYOD data-only Verizon SIMs available? Will I have trouble activating with this device?

    Technically the SIM is designed for voice and data not just one or the other. The plan determines which features are available.

    I should have mentioned that I've explored Verizon's site. In the prepaid section, it asks for your BYOD IMEI to determine if it's network compatible. There was a MOFI4500 on eBay recently where the seller posted the device IMEI. I plugged that in on the Verizon prepaid plan page and it comes back "NOT COMPATIBLE". Tried the same number on a postpaid plan it said it works. Does that mean Verizon is now excluding LTE routers on prepaid plans? I just don't want to drop $300 on a device, plus have to enter into a contract if this thing isn't going to work out.

    I also found this SIM on eBay with double data, but it's for a phone with a new number. Could this be activated on a beater phone and then swap the SIM into the MOFI4500? The eBay description says "Not for Verizon Jetpacks".

    Why not get unlimited Jetpack data from Verizon for $65 a month no contract ?
