Hello , I have a small farm and right now I need my hotspot internet . The MF279 died and to get a new one is 200 dollars I cannot spend right now and to do a payment plan with att requires a new contract that won't work for us. A friend has an a router that says it will work and that we need to just swap out the SIM card . Wont this undo my plan as well with att??
