User's Comment on Product: "I bought this deal last time it came around ... late November I think? Got the iPad Mini Retina $299 deal. It is completely legit. Shipping was slow but only due to the massive demand. Customer service was prompt. At the time they were offering free data till the beginning of March. LTE speeds were great, no throttling... its T-mobile. Device is unlocked / international..." - jowilker

Figured this deserved a new post since they've lowered prices and also switch you over to the free 200MB plan after April.

Millenicom has reduced their prices for the 16GB Ipad Mini Retina LTE and 16GB Ipad Air LTE to $299.99 and $399.99 respectively.

They charge an activation fee of $49.99 and a $15 shipping fee

iPad Mini Retina LTE 16GB (white or black) total for $364.98
iPad Air LTE 16GB (white or black total) for $464.98

Free 6.5GB LTE, unlimited non-LTE, and unlimited non-LTE international roaming until the end of April, then they will automatically switch you over to the monthly free 200MB LTE with unlimited non-LTE, unlimited non-LTE International Internet access unless you select otherwise.

I believe they are a T-mobile MNVO, so the non-LTE is probably throttled 3g.

White Mini - 29085x (bangis)
Black Mini - 29087x (woody88)

The link in the OP takes you to the regular page and it does not require SSL to check out! The link above does.

There is an activation fee of $49.99 and a $15 shipping fee.

iPad Mini Retina LTE 16GB (white or black) total for $364.98
iPad Air LTE 16GB (white or black total) for $464.98

Are the iPads locked?
No, all iPads ship unlocked and can be used on any carrier. All iPads are GSM/CDM/LTE capable now, in a single model. You can use this iPad on Tmo, ATT, sprint, vzw, etc. It will not have non-US LTE bands but should work at 3G speeds in the 100 countries they list support on.

Do i need to cancel before getting charged?

No, it states on April 1, 2014 the promo period for 6.5GB/mo of LTE ends - and you will be automatically transitioned to the free 200MB LTE (unlimited non-LTE/international non-LTE) Obviously double check once you receive, but the terms are very clear. The 200MB then unlimited non-LTE plan is new, no one has any experience with it. The terms page says its through 2014, but the support chat staff has said its indefinite.

Is this better than the free 200MB LTE TMO plan?
Yes, this includes unlimited non-LTE both US and internationally. It is not clear what non-LTE is, if that includes 3G or is limited to very slow 2G speeds. IT IS MOST LIKELY "2G"speeds, capped at 128Kbps (16KB/sec) for both international and US after your reach the 200MB LTE in US.

What if I go over 200MB LTE?
You can't, they will turn off your LTE at 200MB and you'll be restricted to non-LTE speeds for the rest of the month. They state they do not charge overages, if you use excessively, tmobile, their provider,may discontinue your service.

The service checker says it has no service at my house
It is broken due to load, if you check tmo coverage maps for non-roaming LTE and 3G you should be good -

These ship with tmobile branded sims.

They have been responsive to questions and there are many, many satisfied buyers from the previous 3 threads on this.

LTE support:
Bands 1,2,3,4,5,7,8,13,17,18,19,20,25,26
This includes all 4 major US cellular providers

If anyone has a screenshot of the iPad Air/iPad Mini Retina prices please post them here as many of us bought this during the last time around and are eligible for Discover Price Protection if there is a screenshot available. Thanks

Holy moley that is one heck of a deal. These guys are legit, right? No hidden fees or any BS of the sort? Just a one-time charge of ~$365-ish for a cellular iPad mini retina?

Ok, so say I live somewhere in Europe or whatever, does this mean I get unlimited 3G speeds (since I can't get LTE because it won't support the frequencies?) Because if so, hot damn that's awesome.... I assume though that the moment you avert your gaze they charge you like 500 bucks a month for data or whatnot... Otherwise, I don't see the profit they're making here...

Just ordered iPad Mini (white). I am located in CA, so I will update you guys on how long it takes to get to me, as well as all details regarding how it is packaged (don't worry, there is no way I'll be fooled into thinking it is factory shrink-wrapped when it's not) and delivered.

Deal sounds really too good to be true, but based on the last time this deal popped up on SD it seems legit.

Yes, AFAIK all iPads are unlocked.

How is that price even possible, cheapest 16 GB iPad Air WiFi + cellular is $629.00?? Wow I wanna pull the trigger just to upgrade my iPad 2 64GB Wifi, BUT 64GB to 16GB would be rough...

Ordered the Black mini. Now to decide what to do with my WiFi Air white... International data is a huge plus for me. Let's hope it works as mentioned.

My question is any SDers from the first deal from this company had their iPads for a few weeks are they working? Are the iPads actually just knockoffs from China that fall apart in a few weeks?

Wow, amazing deal. I definitely am all over this!

It comes with standard Apple warranty so I have no worries at all.
