Last Chance to Get an AT&T Unlimited Plus Hotspot Plan

Оценок: 180 | Просмотров: 12521
2/29/2018 Update: AT&T did proceed with this change, and Unlimited Plus plans are now retired for new customers and grandfathered in for existing customers. Unlimited Plus plan customer can still add a hotspot line through 5/6/2018 to be grandfathered in. 10/28/2017 Update:The original leaked deadline of 10/27 has passed, and hotspot devices are still able to be activated on Unlimited plus for new and existing customers. Which negates at least part of the original leak, and supports rescinding of the policy. Suspicion from others posting online is that AT&T is clearly in talks about changes around hotspot lines, so we are on guard that changes similar to the original leak could occur in the future. As such, we recommend that if you want this plan - act sooner rather than later. -------------------------- Word is out that anyone who has a hotspot activated on an Unlimited Plus or Choice plan by Oct 28 will be grandfathered in when AT&T changes their policy of no longer considering these devices eligible. If you've been considering one of these plans (which gives full LTE unlimited hotspot data just subject to network management) - now may be your last chance. This video is an archive of a presentation we did on our @Internet for RVer Facebook group - overviewing the plan, the different plans AT&T offers and the info you need to get signed up. It answers most all of the frequent questions we've been fielding including: - Why is this plan worthwhile? - Differences between Unlimited Plus and Choice plans - Does this impact the Connected Car Mobley plan? - What about the Home Base Rural plans - What device do we recommend?

If I buy one of these "unlimited data netgear nighthawk router" listings on eBay or amazon, would I be able to switch my sim card out of my z700a and plug it into the new nighthawk? I assume the IMEI of the router in these listings are already grandfathered in? I have the unlimited plus plan, but unfortunately I found out after the fact that AT&T won't allow the new routers to be used. So I'm back to square 1 and $35 poorer due to the restocking fee lol
Mobile Internet Resource Center (1 месяц назад)
Ahh.. a WPHI device. They are coded internally differently than hotspots .. so you probably won't have much luck SIM swapping. It may work for now, but if AT&T ever enforces their device rules, it could quit working. You should be able to buy the new Wireless Internet router on your own, and just put the z700a SIM in it. The plans are based on the SIM card, not the device. So no, buying a used device won't get you the plan. You just simply activate new lines of hotspot service on your account any longer.

Mobile Internet Resource Center the brand is ZTE I believe, but ATT calls it the “ATT Home base” and it allows for a phone connection as well as WiFi from the LTE network. I bought it a year or so ago and had to add a new line and that’s when I also upgraded to the unlimited data plan to get the free HBO :)...but After my recent attempt at upgrading to a better router (that no longer works on unlimited plans) I assumed if I bought a used nighthawk LTE router that was added before the May 6th date it would be able to also work on my plan? Or will the IMEI on the used device still not be useable for me? I hope I’m making sense lol
Mobile Internet Resource Center (1 месяц назад)
Netgear Nighthawks work on the Unlimited Plus Plan. You just had to have them activated prior to May 6. I'm not sure what a 'z700a' is - not familiar with that model number. What type of plan is your SIM provisioned for - smartphone, hotspot?

jon suejoj do you have a,way to contact them
Susan Taylor (3 месяца назад)
Wow, thanks but I just bought my att hotspot device at Walmart for $30. and had an ATT store add unlimited for $45 with no contract today!
jon suejoj (2 месяца назад)
Susan Taylor wow that sounds like a good plan but knowing AT&T they'll try charging you the whole $80 for the unlimited plan
Susan Taylor (2 месяца назад)
jon suejoj att dropped it after one day but I’m disputing it and may win! I should know in a few days.

Is the unlimited for the nighthawk still available with the att unlimited plus enhanced?
Kalee Ann (6 месяцев назад)
Im on unlimited plus still.. I bought one of these things the other day online from AT&T. Added it on as a line for $20 a month. Got it in today and it keeps telling me the device is locked and if you don't have an unlock code get it from your network provider. AT&T has no clue apparently.. spent hours on the phone with them and theyre going to exchange it for a new one.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (6 месяцев назад)
Nope ... they proceeded with dropping support on 2/28 for unlimited hotspots. Our article: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/breaking-att-unlimited-enhanced-plans-dropping-support-for-mobile-hotspots/

Hey guys I like your videos but I wanted to let you know that this is not true I just two weeks ago bought a hotspot and added it to my family plan on the unlimited plus plan and yes I'm getting unlimited data high speed at that. I will tell you that the representative for AT&T told me that I would only get 10 GB and then it wouldn't work no more but I had a week on last month and I used 16 gigs and it was still going strong and now this month I've used over 20 and it's still going strong. I truly feel the AT&T just has to tell us that they're going to but that doesn't mean that that's what happened all the time. Clearly in my position it's not what they told me and on my cell phone I've used over a hundred and 50 gigs before on my Hotspot and had no issues with speed.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (6 месяцев назад)
The 'Enhanced' plan was just launched on 3/1 - and hotspot devices are not eligible. But if you have the original Unlimited Plus plan, you can still add them until 5/6.
Kalee Ann (6 месяцев назад)
Ive got the ATT Unlimited Plus "Enhanced" Plan.. is this what you have as well? I just ordered the nighthawk device right now and am hoping for unlimited data access. When I bought the device it had me add it on to my existing unlimited plan for $20 a month. I heard from a friend about the device today.. When I asked AT&T they acted like unlimited data off a hot spot didn't exist.. told me my friend may have been grandfathered in. Yet when I bought the device it didn't give me any option to pick a data amount.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (6 месяцев назад)
As noted in the description, AT&T rescinded this at the last minute. They did however actually retire this plan on 2/28/2018. Mobile hotspot devices do get unlimited data, and smartphones are supposed to be capped at 10GB (but they're not enforcing it across the board yet).
Edwin Montes (8 месяцев назад)
I just heard of this plan yesterday. And I jumped on it. I don't know anything about being grandfather in.
ernie mac (8 месяцев назад)
Hello do you know if there is a way to extend my att. velocity for my home . I have att dsl where I live but it sucks
Mobile Internet Resource Center (8 месяцев назад)
You mean extend the signal? Look into WiFi extenders.
Nicholas Edwards (9 месяцев назад)
Have a unlimited plus line and just got the hotspot November 22nd really happy they did not end the plan , i m serous considering getting another one just because and it being to my 3rd line would only cost $20 Or 32 with tax plus new device insurance. Edit oh up to 160 Gb so far no slowdown and 20 days to go.

Thanks for all you guys do...love your work! FYI, T-Mobile does offer unlimited hotspotting from a phone for $95 per month, on Unlimited ONE Plus International. I tried it for a few weeks and it worked well. Could be interesting to USB-tether it to a Pepwave or similar device for better range. If you have an old phone you can dedicate, I think that could make a credible setup for replacing the DSL/cable/satellite, depending on your location and T-Mobile's coverage there. If the SIM could be moved to a hotspot (MIMO-antenna ready?)...maybe better yet. Also I wonder whether T-Mobile's 50gig threshold for network management would apply here; but I do suspect you'd get Netflix thrown in free. Am posting this because I think you've stated T-Mobile does not have an unlimited hotspot offering, and that AT&T's was the last one widely available to consumers. Assuming it works, the T-Mobile configuration I describe might be a hack to get there, but a fairly easy one.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
T-Mobile does not offer an unlimited data plan on a dedicated mobile hotspot device. Since this video, Sprint has also come out with one similar to this AT&T deal (we have a video on that too.) But yes, T-Mobile One + International plan does offer unlimited personal hotspot off a smartphone, and their smartphone SIM will not work in a hotspot device. But there are 3rd party resellers who get around this. However, on T-Mobile, hotspot use is always lower priority traffic than on device data (sometimes up to 1/2 the speed), and if you use more than 50GB in a month and 1/2 your usage is hotspot - they reserve the right to "have a talk". All covered in our guide to unlimited: www.rvmobileinternet.com/unlimited To get the free Netflix, you need at least 2 lines of service on the same account.

I already have the unlimited plus plan with 2 phones. I can add this hotspot right now for 20$Xtra a month? and it's non throttle unlimited?
Rodney Noel (9 месяцев назад)
Trey Smith slow and useless
Trey Smith (10 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center I'll havr to call again and speak to someone else. they told me no unlimited on hotspot period
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Hotspot devices are exempt from the 10GB hotspot cap.
Trey Smith (10 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center ok I just spoke with a rep. they told me they could sell a 10 gig hotspot(velocity)I can add for 20$. 2 yr contract. I asked what happens after 10 gig. he told me they alow down to 3g speeds. Is this the same plan your talking about? He acted clueless about the unlimited non throttle part when I asked him.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Correct.. it's non throttled, just subject to network management.
Shannon Parker (10 месяцев назад)
You guys are awesome...I love supporting the research and the passion you have for it...

The leaked memo is false and AT&T has decided to not change anything at this time
joshx413 (8 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center I mean, wouldn't the proof of it being false, be the fact that... it WAS FALSE? Lol.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
It's wasn't false.. it was true at the time. Have not seen proof yet that it was rescinded other than a couple mentions online by non-AT&T employees.

I have no phone line plans on my account just a couple of mobleys and a WHPI . Try doing it online it's worked for myself and others with no plan changes happening . It's best not to get agents and customer no service involved . I also have a FAN so who knows if that has something to do with it or not .
roscoe1972 (10 месяцев назад)
Do you also have AT&T Unlimited mobile phone lines? I wonder if they switched you to the $20 mobile hotspot add/on. After reading your comment I went in and tried. They said my Connected Car plan would change if I signed a two year contract for a different device other than the Mobley. I tried this before with the Unite Explore and was told the same.
Sam T (10 месяцев назад)
If your local store does not have one can you order the Unite Explorer online before the deadline? Or would it have to be in your hand and activated before hand?
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
The Netgear MIMO (our top rated little $30 portable suction cup antenna) has been back in stock this week: www.rvmobileinternet.com/netgear-mimo

Is the Unlimited Plus plan only available to those with good credit?
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
It is a postpaid account, so yes, you do need to pass their credit check.
Havilah Workman (10 месяцев назад)
Just wanted to say thanks for this video. We went to the local AT&T store today, where they were trying to convince us to wait until the 28th to get the Nighthawk hotspot because it’s supposed to be a better device. They were *adamant* that no restriction on data was coming down the pike. My husband and I told them about you guys and they googled the article you wrote, and then looked up the internal AT&T memos that you guys have the numbers for in your article. Their eyes got all wide, and the manager of the store said, “Oh. They’re right,” in this super quiet voice. They were both super embarrassed that they had to be taught this from someone in off the street, lol. They were So Certain that we were wrong, they almost had us convinced too, until they read your article and your supporting evidence. We walked out with an activated Unite Explore in our hot little hands. 😉 THANK YOU!!!!!
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Awesome to hear, thanks for letting us know.. and glad you got your device set up. Happy surfing!
Commander (10 месяцев назад)
My Att store didn’t know anything about a deadline but I went ahead and got new phones and unlimited plus. Also got Velocity for $1.00. Will get the Explore later on down the road. Thanks for info!
Eddie Merkel (10 месяцев назад)
I just got one and it's just like you said. Unlimited plus with a hotspot for $90 a month. The device was like a dollar and change up front. I just became a member of your site today and feel like you have already made it worthwhile. Thanks!
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)

Do you have a link to your friend selling the unlocked hot spots?
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Yes, it's in the linked article (however, he's not our friend.. we've never even communicated with the company. But many of our members report back positively.)
Walter Bazella (10 месяцев назад)
Love my Unite Explore. Four months full timing from NY to FL to CO and only one place where we couldn't get a signal. Our phones will be saying no signal but the U/E with the little MIMO antenna will be blaring away. Best purchase I made. The WIFI extender is still in the box.
Gail Nordahl (10 месяцев назад)
What antenna do you recommend for the Unite Explore?
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Unfortunately the one we recommended (The Netgear MIMO) was recently discontinued. We just got some potential alternates in to test. We have several options listed in our Guide to Selecting Cellular Antennas: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/resources/selecting-a-cellular-antenna-2/
RVLove | Marc & Julie Bennett (10 месяцев назад)
Thanks again for sharing this very useful information. We have had a Verizon Unlimited Data plan (hotspot) for the past 3 years plus 2 iPhones on T-Mobile since February of this year - which really helped slash our monthly connectivity expenses. All thanks to the two of you for giving us a heads up on the latest deals, cutoff dates, limitations etc on the various carriers... Being a member of Mobile Internet Resource Center has truly been invaluable to us, as connectivity is critical for us and what enables our full-time RV life. We consider membership essential for anyone who is mobile and to whom internet is important - the cost of membership is extremely low at just over a dollar a week, and has literally saved us thousands of dollars over the past 3 years that we have been members and provided us with optimal connectivity solutions for our needs. For anyone on the fence about paying $57 a year for membership, we can say from experience that you will recoup that MANY times over during the course of your membership. Chris and Cherie, thanks again for your tireless work on behalf of all of us, we appreciate your passion, expertise and willingness to share with us all. Now, time for us to weigh up whether to add AT&T to our mix for $90/mo :)
RVLove | Marc & Julie Bennett (10 месяцев назад)
Absolutely, it's such a minefield and we're grateful to have you trekking through it all for us!
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Thank you guys.. if were not for members like yourself, there is no way we could devote the time to tracking these constantly changing twists and turns.
Adam Smith (10 месяцев назад)
Would it be a good investment to purchase and resell this device and it's plan?
RVLove | Marc & Julie Bennett (10 месяцев назад)
Perfectly clear to me. Not sure why the message isn't getting through. We appreciate your open, honest answers as always, even if it isn't what others may want to hear. I am sure there are other resources Adam could pursue, as has been suggested.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
You're still not getting it.. we don't have an opinion on it to share! You're welcome to ask the question - of course (and did we say otherwise??). But if it's not a question we have an answer to, then we're going to say so. As we said, we don't track this from the data broker perspective. Find them, and see how they're provisioning for this.. if at all.
Adam Smith (10 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center If you don't want to share your opinion that's fine. Unless you have some kind of disclaimer, a reasonable person would assume they could ask any question relevant to the subject matter of the title of a video. If you and your viewers are the type of people who would be buying these resold plans, since you mentioned them, why would it be unreasonable to even ask the question? I'm only interested in a situation where everybody wins. I did buy your app by the way like it very much. Perhaps I will get some of your merchandise in the future.
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
You are asking in our channel on our video, which is specifically advising RVers and cruisers on how to get this plan now. We simply do not focus on advising data brokers and we are not comfortable advising anyone on if this is a good investment opportunity. If you're interested in becoming a data broker, then find the places those folks hang out - I'm sure there is a lot of knowledge there to tap into. And if there is an aftermarket of rental/resell plans after the cut off - we will cover that to so that our audience can make contacts. Just as we do for the Verizon UDP market.
Adam Smith (10 месяцев назад)
RVLove | Marc & Julie Bennett Actually I bought their app so my cash is sitting in their pocket right now :) This is an open comment section on a public website so I can ask any question I want; most people with reasonable intelligence would assume questions related to the subject matter of the video are allowed and welcomed. Now let me break it down for you and see if you can do some very simple math: if there is it cut off for this plan, most would conclude there would be a finite number of these plans remaining after the cut off. So would your community be better or worse off with more or less of these plans available after the cut off? If I purchase and resell, will there be more or less plans available after the cut off? See if you can follow the bouncing ball and get back to me. As far as having good luck with my life, I have which is why I'm in a position to purchase as many of these devices and plans as I see fit.

I just spoke with Verizon on my new unlimited/5g plan and was told my at&t tablet can use my Verizon cell now as a Hotspot. Do you have any info/truth on that?
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Not quite sure I'm following... how is your plan both unlimited and 5GB? But yes, you can use the hotspot off your Verizon plan to connect your tablet via Wi-Fi. All usage will count against your hotspot cap (which is 15GB on Verizon unlimited plans)
FUKUMONEY (10 месяцев назад)
You guys are right on Time I just called yesterday and the sales rep said I had to have a phone to have unlimited hotspot ... but yea thanx for the video !
nick sheppard (6 месяцев назад)
I just added one on to the unlimited plus plan a week ago and it's unlimited they'll tell you when you call them and add it that you're only going to get 10 gigs but it's bullshit. I've already used over 20 gb in this first week of this month
Rodney Noel (9 месяцев назад)
FUKUMONEY that sh*t sucks had it for one day very slow
FallingLeaf (10 месяцев назад)
Thanks for hooking your subs up with this information bro. I would have let the 27th pass and would have not known. I'm adding a hotspot to my phone plan asap. I might get two cause these things are rare to have.
brandon volanti (10 месяцев назад)
I use the Unite on xfinity mobile. Unlimited data hotspot device 45.00 a month on verizon network. Xfinity states past 20gb you are throttled but currently it's not enforced. Just another great alternative plan
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
We've covered that plan before :)
Pamela (10 месяцев назад)
If I have the mobley with an unlimited plan thru ATT, do I need a hotspot too? I read that the mobley stays active for only an hr after the vehicle is turned off.
Pamela (10 месяцев назад)
Sociopath Mercenary would that be the adapter they showed? I'll take a peek at the vid. Thanks SM. ☮️
Sociopath Mercenary (10 месяцев назад)
Pamela They have a video on the Mobley. You need to turn off the timeout in the Mobley settings and power it from a special power adapter... Not your vehicle scan port.
ianpobanz12 (10 месяцев назад)
OR you can use the PrePaid unlimited AT&T ipad plan for $30 and activate it on an ipad and then after you activate it, put the sim card in a hotspot and it works great!!!! that's what i've been doing for the last month!
ianpobanz12 (10 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center it does for meeeeeeeee i have the option to turn hotspot on and it works just fine
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
That plan does not include any mobile hotspot use.
ianpobanz12 (10 месяцев назад)
Mobile Internet Resource Center well i really hope not!!! but i can always just put the sim is my iphone, and use the hotspot function!
Mobile Internet Resource Center (10 месяцев назад)
Yes, just like putting the Mobley SIM in a hotspot - it works. But there's always risk that AT&T will crack down on this practice.
