Activating Verizon unlimited sim with Pepwave?

How do you activate the Verizon unlimited SIM card on a Pepwave or Cradlepoint mobile router?

What size is the Verizon sim micro? What does the Pepwave or Cradlepoint require?

Thanks

SIMs typically come on a 3 in one card where you punch out the size you need (SIM, micro SIM, nano SIM). Today's phones take nano SIMS. You'll have to check with those companys for their specs. I have a Pepwave Surf On The Go that doesn't take a SIM; it takes a USB hotspot instead, and I will be using a Novatel 7730L which works according to the 5GStore but is not officially supported by Pepwave. I may not use the Pepwave at all unless it is to get a signal to the site next to us or outside the RV. Are you set on one of those two as there are others out there like the MoFi 4500. The 5GStore can help with the Pepwave SOHO.

First of all, if you already own the router check with Verizon. I have a three-year-old Pepwave BR-1 that Verizon refuses to activate, saying it's "too old."

Good point from John hicks. Part of the online order process is to input the IMEI of the device to check compatibility. It identified my 7730L and said nice things. LOL
