help activating my ipad 2 on verizon

Hi all,My brother got me an ipad while hes visting New York. Id wish for him to be able to use it himself while hes there, so that would mean hed activate the ipad using iTunes on his laptop. However, I dont want to have to bother him every single time I want to hook up my ipad for software updates.Is there a possibillity for him to activate and use it, then de-activate it before giving it to me, and for me to re-activate the machine using my own iMac? iMac Mac OS X (10.5.8)...

I am wanting to buy an ipad model, but AT&T *****, especially in my area. I noticed there is now an ipad for verizon, but relies on the MiFi hotspot. Is the ipad for verizon a different type of ipad?

Anyone know the definitive on 3G service from verizon? I get conflicting info from verizon reps. Is there or isnt there an activation and a reactivation fee? First I was told no, then yes, and they keep flip-flopping. I thought the beauty of the ipad was that you werent locked into a plan. However, the last rep said if I buy data for one month and dont use it the next, but want to get data the month after that, youd also be charged a $35 reactivation fee. That seems absurd. But then some reps have said there is no reactivation fee. Anyone know the real story? Thanks. ipad 2 iOS 4...
