AT&T Post Pay Tablet plan Good Tablets to get LTE Service

Post by gscheb » Sun Jan 31, 2021 11:50 am

Hello all,

In some post in the past there as been an issue with someone using to old of a tablet/ipad to get this service with and not getting a LTE SIM card. This concerned me when ordering my first one. So the goal for me was to get the cheapest Tablet possible to get the IMEI # to get a LTE card. So Thought would start a post of devices people used to get one successfully.

So far was able to do it with these two tablets

1. Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
2. Samsung Galaxy Tab A

Having to buy a tablet nullifies one of the main purposes of buying an LTE router, to save money. I can type on a laptop keyboard much faster than on a touch screen so I have no reason to buy a tablet.

I believe gscheb is only posting what tablets will work with ATT's unlimited tablet plan. I would assume that almost any tablet that is capable of "4G/LTE" would work but its good to know model numbers of verified devices. I would hope that the 'main purposes' of buying an LTE router would be to obtain fast internet speeds in locations that have no other options rather than just trying to get cheapest internet. What other way do you know of to obtain an activated sim card for your LTE router other than a tablet sim? Other than limited expensive 'legit' business plans and 'phone' line accounts of course. Out of the various plans I have activated over the past few years, the cheapest way by far for me was buying a cheap busted LTE tablet for 15-20 bux on ebay and activating its IMEI on say ATT's unlimited tablet plan for $20/mo.

Thanks for explaining the logic. I never thought of buying a junk tablet for the IMEI number but that's a clever option. My main objective when purchasing my LTE router was to dump my local cable company who kept raising the cost of their data only plan and provided lousy service. I was also planning to use the router in my RV. I purchased a 'grandfathered' tablet plan from a reseller on eBay a couple years ago and it worked until a month ago when my wife's excessive daily video streaming caused the account to be red flagged and disabled. Now she's stuck watching free to air TV every day. I'll look for a suitable 4G/LTE tablet for sale locally or just buy another reseller's plan.

I'm back with AT&T again for now. The wife's not happy about having to deal with her blog addiciton but that's life. If she gets us canned again I may try Visible. Thanks for the tip!
