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.

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 - http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage.html

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:
https://www.apple.com/ipad/LTE/
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

Why does everyone keep mentioning "Air", this deal is not for an "Air" it is for a "mini". Apple sells these refurbed units for $319 to dealers and service companies, you can buy one if you have an education email address for about this price. The general public can buy these from apple for $359.

did anyone read the T&C.... what does this mean?

iPad Service: Free 200MB LTE with unlimited non-LTE and unlimited non-LTE International Internet access is valid for the balance of the current calendar year unless service is withdrawn by the upstream carrier.

The FAQ reads:
"What happens to my iPad account when my free service ends?
Your plan allows monthly free service for 200MB LTE with unlimited non-LTE thereafter and unlimited non-LTE International Internet access "

Wrong on all counts. Only if they have your SSN info like Cable, Employer, Cell Phone, Doctors or Insurance companies. Not this company. It'll be too costly for them to pursue such small charges.

End of story. Now let's all hope they get what they ordered. Enjoy !!!
wrong on all stupid comments. they can send ur debt to collection agency without ssn. r u new to america?

All of your prices are based on non-retina mini and/or without LTE:

Here is your $359 (no retina)

Education pricing: (even in bulk orders or 10+) they do not get this cheap:

I hope everyone at least paid a couple dollars extra and got signature confirmation. Also, the way they send it is in one of those padded shipping envelopes that offers most minimal protection.
