"Special discount for T-Mobile voice plan customers only. Includes unlimited Wi-Fi access to the T-Mobile HotSpot Network nationwide". "$9.99/mo charges billed monthly until cancelled NO ANNUAL COMMITMENT REQUIRED"
It would seem that I have several options.
1. create a pre-paid plan with this device
2. subscribe as above$9.95mo on post-paid
Do not know if this will serve my at-home needs so that I can cancel cable internet. I do not travel most of the year but when I do, perhaps 4 week vacation,having internet would be nice. What makes the most sense? As an added note, t-mo cell signal only in one room of home. Can one use an antenna with Hotspot device? T-MO Voice currently not reliable enough to discontinue phone company wire line.
Have heard that a device exists to connect t-mo cell to cable router (would allow me to drop wire voice line).
Any help in selecting lowest cost options for data and voice would be appreciated. Feel free to pm me. Thanks.

ZTE MF61 T-Mobile 4G I believe that is the proper model number that should be in the wiki. The link no longer brings up the data plans. Calling tmo for details is useless. The thread has already made it clear that once you load the $25 card the 30 day clock starts ticking and any unused MB go up in smoke. Not a good deal for those buying these for occasional access on short trips.
edit: Prepaid Mobile Broadband Plans: Service available for time period and/or usage amount provided by Pass. For time period, a day is 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., based on time zone associated with account phone number. Usage rounded up to the nearest KB each session; 1024 KB = 1 MB. Only one Pass may be active at a time. Account suspended after 365 days of inactivity. Data only; does not include voice, messaging or Wi-Fi services. Apps & 3rd Party Content: Use of some content, features, or services may incur separate, additional charges and/or require a qualifying data plan or access to Wi-Fi connection.
note: does NOT work the same as pre-paid pay-as-you go voice plans although it ought to. Could conceivably cost someone $25 to check their email just once when away from home yet a 7 or 30 day pass does not provide enough MB for many intensive users. Can loose data if you reach the limit during use.
