Does anyone use a hot spot device? I want to put one in my bitchin mini van so I can serve up DRM movies to a bunch of ipads. It seems you need to authenticate before the movies gets served up. My question is does the wifi network work even if you don't have a tmobile signal? My phone refuses to serve up a hot spot if it doesn't have signal. I need to know if the hot spot devices are different. My alternative is stripping the DRM off which is kinda illegal and I would still need a router that is powered by usb anyway.

I don't know if anyone has a hot spot added to their t mobile account, but I activated one for a trip I was taking and was able to reduce the monthly fee from $20, to $10, which when the month plan discount is added reduces the cost to zero. You just have to switch plan to the promotional plan. Didn't know you could get a ftee hot spot but now you can. (Through 2014 anyway) 1gb per month.

You don't lease it-- you give them $25, and it's yours as long as you are a t-mobile customer. If you stop being one, you give it back. I guess that's a "lease" but its a $0 one.

I don't think they charged me the $25 and they shipped it over night even though I paid for the slowest cheapest shipping over the phone. I told them there were spots in my house with no wifi or cell signal. The non return fee is huge though but they will probably forget about these in 5 years anyway and not ask for them back.

They don't make you switch plans to add a line. Please don't complain about free netflix for my screaming kids or I will hire you to baby sit them.

Yeah they are more carrier now then ever. Tried to get a promo phone price on a crappy phone and they said nope this is only for new plans. I said it doesn't say that anywhere in the promotion. Goodbye I will buy a prepaid phone on clearance for $9 and sell the minutes for $10.

Is it $300 for any of the trade in phones or up to $300? Also I assume I will have to upgrade to a One plan and lose my cheaper whatever the hell plan I have plan. Has anyone tried this scam on a 7. I don't really care about having an 8 but my kids throw my phone down the stairs for sport so I like to keep it rotated for fresher stock. It looks like $250 gets me a new phone and warranty. (Assuming I keep T mobile for 24 months).

Does the military discount work if the military person, my dad, is not the account owner just a recipient of an active phone on the account?

I'm shocked that the combination of the two sketchiest carriers would not go smoothly.

Has anyone got this promotion to work? $530 off for a 7 seems fine with me. (Via 24 monthly credits)
