Which SIMCARD for new DataConnect Pass ?

Hallo

 

Living in Europe I would like to activate a new DataConnect Plan

for my Tablet right before I start travelling to the US.

 

Do I need a special ATT SimCard for this,

or can I pick any SimCard offered like on Ebay ?

There are so many different :

Some say: use this SimCard ONLY for new GoPhone acivations ?

Some say: 3G (eventhough DataConnect Plan is 3G + 4G) ?

I dont want to go wrong.

 

I will use it for 30 days.

If afterwards the SimCard is inactive for like 12 month,

can I use it again on my next vacation to the US ?

 

My (european) Tablet is both : a phone and a Computer.

Am I denied using a DataConnect Plan, if I only want data and no phone ?

 

Thank you

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

  Let me try and help you.

 First, I would like to know what Tablet you have.

 Some tablet sold in Asia & Europe may not work in USA/ Canada due to different 3G/4G Band.

 

 If the AT&T sim card is inactive for 12 months,I don't think you can reuse it again for your next vacation.

Hi adidaskid808

 

Thanks for your help.

It is a Samsung Galaxy Note 8

(GSM: Quad-Band 850/900/1.800/1.900 MHz

UMTS: 850/900/1.900/2.100 MHz)

So I think, it will work in the US.

 

Any Sim Cards that do not work for DataConnect Plan ?

How about a GoPhone SimCard ?

 

Thank you

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

   This tablet should be working fine in US/Canada as is.

 This one taken Micro Sim,

 Since you just use it for data ,not as a phone.

 You can try and get the pay by the month data only plan  .

 Any Micro Sim 3G/4G will work. But not the one for new Gophone !!

 Cheers.
