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 ?

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.

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 ?

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 !!
