Device must be on an active Total Wireless line for 12 full months before it can be unlocked for use on other carriers.
However, this device is compatible with Tracfone, Net10 and Straight Talk without needing to unlock it first.
Can be used as a WiFi only device with no need to activate.
No contract or activation required to purchase or use as a "mini tablet" over WiFi or connected to a different phone's mobile data hotspot.
If you activate the included prepaid card, you are under no obligation to continue paying for service past the initial 30-days of included airtime. It will end automatically on day 31 (you must prepay to continue).
