    Cool Free T-Mobile LTE data on my iPad Air!

    I am now using T-Mobiles new 200MB free promotional data plan on my AT&T iPad Air and surprisingly their LTE speeds are pretty darn good in my are of Bucks County, PA. This new promotional plan of T-Mobiles is great considering I won't use more than 200MB of data every month anyway.

    Congrats! It's awesome that apple only released one wifi + cellular model for the US, gives us the consumer options. That's also the thing I like most about T-Mobile, having flexibility. I have only been with them a few months but so far so great.

    I would love to be able to use T-Mobile with my iPhone service too. Unfortunately as you can see from my thread, I still can't do this yet due to network related issues. T-Mobile still spotty in Bucks County PA.

    I'm also using it on my vzn iPad mini retina that was delivered yesterday. TMO has very good cell service in most areas of FL. I know 200MB is not much but it will do in a pinch. It is the same amount I have on my iPhone 5 and I've never gone over. I have a prepaid TMO hotspot that we use in the RV. Buy data only when we need it.

    You will need to get a TMO data sim and sign up.

    I use this on my Verizon iPad (3rd generation), and although I can't get LTE (only HSPA+), I still love the plan. It's the perfect amount for me!

    Go to T-Mobiles website and purchase the Nano SIM card for $10 shipped. Once you get it turn WiFi off and cellular on, then open Safari. You should then see a box pop up telling you to sign up for a data plan. Just follow the instructions and you'll get the 200MB free data plan.

    Not at all. Actually they don't even ask for your credit card info or address. The only info it asked me for was my name and home phone number. Then I picked a password and the data plan. Shortly after hitting submit I received an email from T-Mobile about my plan, along with my iPad number and PIN number.....

    True, but going into Safari with WiFi off as I mentioned will bring up the same thing as going through the settings menu.

    Correct Karen. Also, right now T-Mobile has a holiday deal going on where they are giving up to 2 Nano SIM cards free. I picked up 2 more free ones this past Monday. Shipping is also free, so there really is no charge for them.

    Here is the link to T-Mobiles website if anyone is interested in picking up a Nano SIM card:

    Hey glad you got this to work. Not sure if you know this or not, but you can order another free SIM card from my link above and set up another 200 MB of free data on your iPad Air. This will give you 400 MB of free data. When you use up the 200 MB of data for the month on one Sim simply pop in the second sim and you're good to go with another 200 MB for the month. Haven't set my second sim up yet as I still have data left over, but will when I run out, lol.

    From what I have read on other forums, there doesn't seem to be issues for anyone that is doing this. As I said, though, I haven't tried it myself yet. 600 MB free sounds awesome! Lol

    I'm actually surprised that T-Mobile doesn't have something set up to prevent something like this. But hey! Their loss is our gain...

    Me too. I just ordered 2 as well. My iPad air came with they mobile sim so I never had to pay for that one either. It will be interesting to see if we can get the 200 MB free per each sim on the same device.

    One annoying thing is that their order process made you enter a credit card even though the order was free.

    Ya it made me also I think incase you wanted to pay for faster shipping .. But I have 200 already I can wait for free lol ..

    Only thing I thought was funky is they sent me my sim via ups and it took literally a week when the post office prob would have been faster
