If I purchase a $250 gift card from Verizon, would I be able to use it to pay for prepaid Verizon iPad service, instead of a credit card?
That's a question Verizon would be in a better position to answer.
Perhaps you should ask Verizon this question.
Called Verizon and they said you can't. You would need to purchase a prepaid visa or mastercard.
