    Was able to put my phone on the new plan easily. However, it doesn't show up as an option for my tablet. Is there a restriction on tablets using the new plans?

    Is the tablet WiFi only? Or does it have cellphone radios? (Knowing the make and model number of the tablet would help us to help you.)

    Sorry. It's a 4G Galaxy Tab S4. I contacted VZW on Twitter and they said tablets aren't eligible for the new plans. :-(

    I believe tablets show up as something different. Donyou have a SIM? There should be an option to activate a new device on your account that lets you do a tablet.

    Yes. I do have a SIM on the tablet. Where exactly in my account would I seek that option.

    Looking in the Verizon app, I see it in Menu > Devices > Add Device

    If I did this, would the tablet have its own pool of data to draw from, or would it share with the phone?

    You're on an unlimited plan. It'll have its own pool of data before slowdown.

    This should add $20/mo to your bill.

    Sharing with the phone is tethering.

    I think I left out that the tablet is already activated on its own unlimited plan. What I was hoping to do was put it on the new plan so it could have 30 GB hotspot available to use instead of the present 15.

    Yes. The same VZW account. Here's the setup.
