Does ATT allow you to use any compatible hotspots/MIFIs for their prepaid/GoPhone data plans? Or must you use their boxed hotspot? I want to use an out of contract ATT hotspot for the new prepaid hotspot plan but can't find anything that says yes or no...
Their new prepaid hotspot plans $50-5gb or $15-250mb.

This MIFIs/hotspots is not that common in North America.
People using tab now and Free WiFi hotspots are everywhere in USA & Canada.
I had an unlocked MIFI & mobile internet stick from UK ,
only 2G work in North America,too slow.I passed.

Sorry, you are not understanding my question.
AT&T has new pre-paid hotspots data only wireless plans. The charge $50/30 days 5gb or $15/30 days 250mb. This is not a free WIFI at McDonalds or Starbucks. It is a personal hotspot service you carry around.
My question is, do I have to use/buy their device or can I use an unlocked or my own out of contract AT&T hotspot (BYOD)?
Their previous USB pre-paid data device had proprietory softward so you could not BYOD.

This is what I told you early.
This MiFi (Personal hotspot),(Dongle) Not many people use it in North America.
You can go to any Crop. AT&T store ,told them you would like to BYOD.and joint the service.
They will be gladly to help you.
Most BYOD personal hotspot may only work with 2G in North America.

Thanks. I am not sure where you are but MIFIs and hotspots are very popular here where I am. The AT&T hotspots in my uses the 4g and LTE network.
The question is, will a postpaid MIFI work with this new pre-paid plans? The previous pre-paid data plan required AT&T boxed pre-paid devices with imbedded software.
I called AT&T store and they did not even know of the plan.

As far as I know,any AT&T phones , MiFi's will work in Postpaid or Prepaid plan.
Unless the drive (software) inside your MiFi/phone need update.
