    4G mobile hotspot question

    The local Office Depot has T-Mobile "4G" mobile hotspot devices on sale for about $33 each. The device box has no obvious name brand or model number other than T-Mobile's. I was thinking about getting one to use with my SIM and grandfathered Total Internet VPN data plan. I currently share my data connection using JoikuSpot on my Nokia N8 but it creates an ad hoc WiFi connection which some devices don't seem to understand.

    Here are a few questions.

    1. Does this device work with a standard Mini-SIM or some other format?
    2. Will it work with most any T-Mobile SIM or does it require a specific data SIM?
    3. Any other issues?

    I snapped a bad picture of the device in its protective plastic box.

    All hotspots require a SIM that is on a data only plan. You can't use your total Internet sim in that device.
