    Whats interesting is that it looks like with Consumer Cellular you can get 2gb data plus texting for $10 ($9.50 with AARP) and it works on both ATT and TMO. Scratch that - error when Problem is TMO might be better because you can buy refill cards at discounts from Target sometimes, I think. And of course there are taxes

    Update - scratch that, it would not let me complete the transaction without a talk plan

    Arrow How does this plan work?

    That is one gig per month for five months or how does that work?

    What happens if you use the five gigs all in the same month?

    I think you get 5 gigs total and it lasts until you use it all or 5 months, whichever comes first. If you use it all , you would have to try and renew to get another 5 gigs. But I havent done the plan so people here can correct me if I am wrong

    That's exactly how it works.

    You have five months to use the data. If you use all the data, you can then select from one of the regular T-Mobile data plans.

    I ended up adding the T-Mobile One Tablet plan to my postpaid plan. It's unlimited data for $20.

    And I've been able to renew on my iPads, but that isn't a guarantee.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    So my last 5GB/5month deal expired in April. Just now, I logged into my account on my iPad and at the bottom, tapped on cancel service. I rebooted the iPad and the cellular tab was reset to now show no plans. I selected add a new plan and selected T-Mobile and provided all the info and selected the 5GB/5 month deal all over again for $10.

    You can do this as many times as you want as long as T-Mobile keeps offering this deal. This is my 4th time of getting this offer, two with this same iPad and two on a previous iPad I sold last summer.

    When you can service each time, it resets the iPads cellular tab so it's ready to go and the sim or eSim is also reset so it can be used again. The sim card is reset as if it were never used.

    I have this plan on one iPad and the $20 unlimited T-Mobile One Mobile plan on another iPad.

    I thought I'd revive this thread because I've been playing—

    I upgraded to an iPhone 11, moving my main line to eSIM and having a SIM slot free for other things. I had been using a Truphone SIM in that spot for a spare number, but wondered how restrictive T-Mobile would be about the 5GB/150 day plan. There have been reports of things being heavily throttled and/or not working at all when taking out of the supported device or device type, but the Apple SIM in my fifth-gen iPad seemed to work okay immediately (unlike a few instances in the past).

    I had another Apple SIM (would've used a T-Mobile SIM if I had one instead), so I bought another pass with that on the iPad, popped that SIM in my iPhone and it's been working as a second line and still getting decent speeds today. I figure I'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes and at worst, I can either move the SIM back to the iPad or be out $10.

    The thing about the Apple SIMs are that they appear as whatever carrier is currently in use unless you change them, but the iPhones don't have the software mechanism to do that. I don't intend on using Sprint, GigSky, Truphone (the data-only plans), or the others, so it can be a plain old T-Mobile SIM for the time being.

    My eSIM is on AT&T and coverage/speeds are pretty good, so this is more to help in the few places where T-Mobile is significantly better (and really just to see if it could be done). If it ends up not working or the pass expires, I may throw the Truphone SIM back in my phone.
