T-Mobile has the no annual contract 4G Mobile Hotspot for $35, including a free $25 refill card and free shipping. This is normally $115 at Walmart without a $25 refill card. The $25 refill card will get you 1.5 gigs for a month. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

YOU CAN NOT use this with the walmart 60 day card. ONLY Hoptspots pruchaced at walmart can use the special "60 day" walmart card.This unit will only give you 30 days on the $35 card.


Want to unlock this device? Yes you can but notice that

ZT61 supports this bands

So as long as you plan to unlock it to use with the above carriers then it will work

How fast is the data speed?
For me, being in a major METRO, Tmobile hotspot is MUCH faster than Freedompop (only when the monthly Quota limit hasn't been reached. Once that happens and Tmobile starts to throttle the account, it's SLOWER than Freedompop)

I know this isn't a phone. Do you have to have a t-mobile phone or can you just use this as a stand alone device to access the internet using wifi on a laptop or cellphone that can use wifi. It seems that there is a $25 restocking fee if you want to return it.

Thanks

Has anyone succesfully used the device bought from t-mobile directly with walmart 60 day $35 plan ? Based on the walmart website it is only for walmart t-mobile devices ?

http://www.walmart.com/ip/T-Mobil...y/21191046

Access 4G Internet on the go with the T-Mobile $35 Prepaid Mobile Broadband Pass. It offers 3.5GB of data usage and is good for 60 days only at Walmart. Pass is only eligible on broadband devices purchased at a Walmart after 6/1/2012. The pass includes no activation fee, no annual contract, no credit check and no overages. And it works with any new T-Mobile Laptop Stick or mobile hotspot purchased at Walmart. If you regularly surf the web, check email and update your social network, this card is a good choice.
According to this Wal-mart questions thread, someone had tried the walmart refill on a tmobile purchased hotspot and only got 30 days of service before activations. Buyer beware!

Question: Does the internet device need to be purchased from Walmart in order to use the 60 day pass? I read somewhere the device IMEI has to be from Walmart.

Answer: Yes, the Mobile Hotspot device must be purchased from Walmart for the Refill Card to be good for 60 days. I ordered a device from T-Mobile's website and purchased a $35 Refill Card from Walmart and it was for good for only 30 days.

Freedompop and LTE networks are forcing 4G hotspot services to become more more competitive. Walmart option is good to compare if you plan on sticking to T-mobile 4G for some time. This is a good deal for $5
Tried to get 2, but no dice, ended up grabbing one. Thanks!

I updated the Wiki, You can NOT use the walmat 60 day card on this. It will only last 30 days. You must purchase through walmat to get 60 days. I already been down this road.
