    Do you mean that we should sign up, use it, and if they complain that the plan is only for tablets and not phones, only then apologize?

    Terms of service for data prioritization is the same for the new unlimited phone data, connected car devices and tablet plans. Lots of Mobley devices being used in an AC adapter for more than a year with no service disruption.

    More specifically, AT&T's terms clearly state that they may, at their discretion, disconnect you or change your plan unilaterally. It's up to them. Right now, they aren't.

    Not official, but a source who I trust says that AT&T almost certainly has an internal accounting rule that deters them from encouraging churn. Basically as long as they're making money, they don't care if the tech savvy use the SIM in a different device. At the end of the day, it benefits AT&T zero to force you to tote around a qualifying tablet instead of a smartphone. You'll use the same amount of data (if not more just out of punitive revenge), and they know it.

    Now if the Today Show tomorrow told viewers that you could get AT&T service for $29/month and walked them through signing up and installing Skype for phone calls... it is reasonable to conclude that AT&T might consider implementing changes. This is known as price discrimination in economics, or an "under the table" offering on mainstreet... it's perfectly reasonable... on both sides.

    I just upgraded my iPad to the mini 4 and put my AT&T sim in it to replace the included Apple Sim. Works perfect with the unlimited data plan. Apparently if I use Apple sim on AT&T which I could it makes the Apple sim useless for other carriers as it becomes locked to AT&T. I would have swapped to the Apple Sim if I could use it with the unlimited plan for AT&T and could swap to other carriers. But knowing this, I will keep the Apple Sim separate. Glad I already had a working AT&T sim.

    That is true, and it is actually worse on iPhone, where it will lock the device's SIM tray, not just the SIM card!

    This is why you should always insert a Verizon SIM into a carrier-agnostic iPhone sold at Best Buy, or elsewhere, before activating it (and/or powering it up). Verizon is required per Block C regulations to unlock devices. Introducing a VZW SIM to an iPhone sold through those channels during unboxing/activation, will render it permanently unlocked.

    But in the iPad's case, Apple stood firm on keeping them "always unlocked" - so you can always just pick up a new Apple SIM from an Apple Retail Store, should you decide to use the included Apple SIM card with AT&T.

    I bought the cellular model rather than do a wifi and hotspot solution as someone said it will work as a hotspot because for traveling I don't want to shlep another device.

    However, as my iPad is unlocked and I have an Apple sim I guess I would need another plan to have a two sim solution work for me.

    This is my second month on this plan. People need to realize that this plan is completely controlled by the user online. CS can do nothing for you here.
    I used it the first month on my unlocked AT&T branded LG tablet. I have since switched it to my unlocked Nextbit Robbin smartphone and I find Hotspot works. I only get about 5Mbps speeds using Hotspot, which I really don't need since I have a strong cable internet connection and don't mind paying $45 a month including tax. On my Robbin, speeds vary anywhere from 10Mbps to 35Mbps down and about 7-10 Mbps up. I am on band 2. Hangout calls work very well when I have needed it and am satisfied with the service. I signed up for auto renew but will not convert to postpaid. AT&T is definitely the strongest signal and best data speeds where I live in Henderson. Verizon and Sprint are the pits here - though Verizon is decent for voice. T-Mobile is Ok for data but staticky for voice. AT&T is clearly the big winner where I live so I am very grateful for this plan.

    They do offer what you are suggesting. If you get a line on the unlimited plan, they will sell you a cellular router to put it in. Or you can go to Amazon and buy your own router and it tells you what sim to ask for from AT&T.

    I'm very interested to know do you need to have a post paid account with Att to use the homebase?

    I finally found a home base online and I want to use my $30 unlimited iPad plan in that device, but I do not have an account with att to set the device up with my sim or am I over complicating it and it's just as simple as plug and play.

    Yes plug and play.

    Except the apn. Since its a data only device plan you will need to use Broadband apn.

    If it were setup as a phone you can use Nxtgenphone.

    It comes default to nxtgenphone and will habe to be changed to broadband.

    Anyone notice stream saver in action on an ipad plan. I had the plan for years and killed it off a few months ago in favor of connected car. I never saw the option to turn off stream saver in the account management page. My nephew just signed up for the ipad plan and his new account management page doesn't have the option to turn it off off. If he does experience streamsaver video issues, is the only option a call to to tech support or should he go through the hassle of getting Connected Car. On my second CC plan I had to go to a company store have the store staff and phone support people stumble arround the ATT system for 1.5 hours before they got it going, wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    Do I need a new SIM card or something?

    Every time my data connection drops to 4g I get extremely slow data speeds to no data speed. I have 2 -3 bars on 4g but just a horrible connection.

    Unfortunately where I live I can not get wired internet with a reliable company as I had to cancel Charter who I plan on suing in court.

    If I had another property with appropriate internet in NYC city limits, it would be through an appropriate communications firm that had their own fiber optic lines or even upcoming 5G services or whatnot.

    I am on AT&T unlimited as long as the 29.99 rate continues for the forseeable futur
    Using LTE as home internet in NYC is just plain abuse. You need to figure your problems out with Charter. You don't sue a broadband provider, you go through the PUC, and if necessary, FCC, to get the service working as advertised. This plan is great for places where there are more cows or corn than people and no wired broadband available. This is a heck of a lot better than "unlimited" satellite, where you get throttled to like 1mbps after your allotment, and have to deal with crazy high ping.

    AT&T and Randall opened the door by outright allowing Home Internet devices on Unlimited Plus. So if it's "abuse", it's AT&T asking for it.

    Personally I think the carriers are pushing for infrastructure dollars in the upcoming $1 Trillion federal infrastructure program, and are stress testing their networks to justify it. Rural broadband, over 5G LTE, and they want the dollars to do it.

    I do agree that suing a broadband provider isn't likely to do much. Small claims judges decide cases in about a minute. They aren't going to look at pings and TTLs. You might have a class action, but you would need to demonstrate you aren't alone in that.
