Connect your tablet to T-Mobile’s network in two ways: add it to your existing plan or purchase a prepaid data-only package.

Add a Tablet

If you have a T-Mobile cell phone plan, you can add a table or hot spot for an additional $20 or $25 per month, depending on your plan.  You can save $5 per month, per device if you sign up for automatic payments.

NerdWallet makes managing your finances easy.

Keep track of your spending, credit score, and even find fresh ways to save.


Prepaid plans require no commitment or credit check and let you purchase daily, weekly or monthly data packages. These plans include unlimited music streaming via select services and unlimited 2G data, which kicks in after you use up your high-speed data allotment. Simple Choice North America plans automatically renew every 30 days; passes don’t.
