But am I missing functionality of iPad Pro..? I was like you, had orig iPad w/ unlimited data plan, did move it once to iPad 2 (but did so at Apple Store, so no hiccups). Then – rec’d ipad3 – but Apple Store told me since it was 4G, couldn’t move the 3G plan…or maybe they said I wouldn’t have all features – BUT NOW…I moved to ipadpro – obviously my unlimited data plan must not allow me to use iPad as hotspot since it doesn’t “show up” under cellular section. Otherwise seems fine??? Am I missing out?

(Note: Apple has great “like new” factory refurbs.) This method worked just as advertised. IIRC I didn’t need to turn on auto billing afterward but did check it per these instructions. Getting ready to do this again to transition from the iPad 4 to an Air 2 this week (yet another Apple factory refurb).

Presuming you already got the answer, for others with the same question, it can be moved to one of them, but not to both simultaneously. One of the two will require a new plan if you want both on cellular data at the same time.

So what did you do instead? Or what did they at the store do? And do you mean an Apple store?

After two hours on the phone with AT&T customer service I was told that I would need to visit a store in person to make the update. My plan is only $25.00 a month on a reoccurring billing cycle for unlimited data and was purchased Dec 2010. The instructions outlined above have changed as they have removed the unlimited data option from the drop down and try to get you to pick a current plan. I was told I store Not to choose any of those options.

Will that pose any problems for moving my unlimited plan.
