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.

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

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 - 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

I will be actually glad to have it cancelled since there was just a refurb Retina Mini deal at walmart for $242 this weekend. Hoping i will score it SOMEDAY at that price since i do not really need a cellular tablet.

If they resume sales of the air's in the next few days (at the higher prices) I'm pretty sure many folks here will be pretty ticked off.... I'd imagine they are having a meeting this morning to decide what to do...

Anyone had any luck getting details about the non-LTE service from them? Their support staff, while responsive, has basically no idea what they're talking about beyond fulfillment (and even then, they dont know any details about orders shipping/etc..)

I'm mostly interested in:
1) What does non-LTE mean to them? 2G speeds? (<128Kbps/16KBps)
2) What happens at the end of 2014 - do they plan to offer a monthly plan? Just cancel everyone?

How are people finding out about canceled orders? Emails from Millenicom?

I ordered a black Mini and a White Air at 2:30 Central on Friday. Confirmations on both on order and payment (4 emails, and when I could log in).

Yes through email. Since we cannot log in to the site, they are communicating strictly through email. All orders show paid, but cancellation emails do state refunds will be given.

Replying to my own post!

I found this as a few comments on another post about the earlier december sale, it sounds like atleast the US non-LTE is not 2G speeds:
Quote :
Just wanted to follow up with you guys about the Millenicom 6.5GB iPad plan. In my area I have very unstable T-Mobile LTE service, and my connection bounces between 3 bars on 4G and 2 bars on LTE. Max speed so far has been around 18Mbps while connected via LTE. Because of the speed and latency fluctuations I simply switched off LTE and quickly ran through my alloted minutes. I believe that my plan was throttled down because my speed dropped, however I was happy to find that, at least in my area, “unlimited non-LTE service” translated to an average of 4Mbps down/.25Mbps up. Not awesome, but very much usable for unlimited everyday web surfing, etc.

To test things further, I started updating my Steam game collection, and am siting at around 33GB, or 26.5GB of “non-LTE” downloads past my allotment. To further test things, I surpassed my data allotment on my MetroPCS phone(on the T-Mobile network) and at approx 10GB past my allotment, I’m still pulling 4Mbps download speeds.

After brief discussions with people on broadbandreports.com , it seems that depending on area, throttling on T-Mobile in no longer limited to horribly slow 2G speeds, and in some cases includes up to 4G speeds as well. Certainly something worth watching.
