AT&T Offers New $30 Unlimited DataConnect Pass Plan for Tablets

at&t-dataconnect-pass
AT&T has come up with a  new Unlimited DataConnect Pass plan for tablets. The new plan offers unlimited data, subject to de-prioritization after 22 GB when the network is congested. This plan is a perfect option for those who are seeking for a prepaid data plan while they are on a vacation, traveling, or simply always on the go. Eligible devices for the plans can enjoy wireless data services with session-based prepaid data plans. And since these plans are prepaid, long-term contracts are not necessary.

The plans under DataConnect Pass include these options:

Domestic DataConnect Pass Pay as You Go Plans
  • $5 for 250 MB of data for 24 hours 
  • $25 for 2 GB of data for 90 days
  • $29.99 for Unlimited GB for 30 days (NEW Plan)
Domestic DataConnect Pass Auto Renew Plans
  • $14.99 for 1 GB of data for 30 days
  • $30 for 4 GB of data for 30 days
  • $50 for 7 GB of data for 30 days
International DataConnect Pass Plans
  • $30 for DataConnect Pass Global 120 MB for 30 days
  • $60 for DataConnect Pass Global 300 MB for 30 days
  • $120 for DataConnect Pass Global 800 MB for 30 days

Domestic Auto Renew plans automatically renew so you don't have to worry about this every month. The automatic renewal may also be canceled at any time after logging back into the account. Pay as You Go and International plans are not eligible for Auto Renew and mist be manually reactivated every 30 days as needed.

To purchase an AT&T DataConnect Pass on an iPad go  Settings > Cellular Data > View Account or go to http://www.att.com/ipadlanding using the iPad's browser. For other tablets go to https://buyasession.att.com. A credit or debit card is required.

To see available plans go to https://buyasession.att.com/sbd/Common/ShopRatePlans.action

The new $30 unlimited plan is an unbeatable deal. $30 plans from other carriers offer 3 GB of data at the most. However, because it must be reactivated every month, AT&T could discontinue it at any time. To see how AT&T's tablet plans stack up against the competition see our just updated Prepaid Tablet Data Plans Compared post.

  2. "This is a perfect plan..."

    The competition might well disagree.

  3. No auto renew means you could lose this plan when offer disappear? And left finding what available at that time?

  4. Wonder if you can stick that sim card in a unlock hotspot?

    1. Yes, go to best buy and pick up any GoPhone hotspot for around $54 and it will work fine. Same thing for Cricket wireless.

      Delete
    2. I haven't heard of that loophole working recently. In the past you had to activate the SIM with a tablet MEID in order to get a tablet plan. Once activated, the SIM would work in a hotspot.

      Delete
    3. You will need to Enter the IMEI and ICCID or CSN information of a eligible device at https://buyasession.att.com/sbd/ShowLogin.action to purchase a plan or activate an online account.

    4. I just tried to activate a GoPhone Hotspot and it does work BUT the only plans that come up for it are the AT&T DataConnect Pass Plans for *Computers*, so NO the GoPhone hotspot WILL NOT work for the AT&T DataConnect Pass plans for Tablets and Other Mobile Devices.

      Delete
  5. I wonder why they do not allow us to use that sim in a phone.

    Is there to be more data usage if it is in a phone?

    Just because it is smaller?

    Can we just get a 5 inch tablet that also has cellular data?

    I mean, its all the same, just that one is called a phone and one is called a tablet.

    The UDP at $30???

    How is that even possible?

    Will it last?

    Is it just for one month?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably because it would be too much of a load on the network, since there are more smartphones out there than cellular connected tablets.

      Delete
    2. How is it the same, and why would they allow it in a phone and lose potential voice line customer?

      Delete
  6. T Mobile's One Plan is 32 GB (was 30 last month) with potential to go higher. ATT's new plan is a good beginning, but for those who need more data, it just won't work. AND T Mobile's plan automatically renews.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. And how much does the One plan cost?

      Delete
    2. T-Mobile's 5gb for $10, which can be renewed as soon as the data runs out or 150-days, whichever comes first, is a strong alternative.

      Delete
    3. T-mobile doesn't have a 5gig plan for 10.

      Delete
    4. "T-mobile doesn't have a 5gig plan for 10"

      They do, or at least did, I'm not sure it's still available. It is or was only for iPads with an Apple SIM.

      T-Mobile 5 GB for 5 Months for $10 on New iPad Air 2 with Apple SIM • GearDiary

      Has the 5GB for 5 Months for $10 promotion expired | T-Mobile Support

      Delete
    5. Yes ... the 5gb/$10/150-days option is still available to me as a Day Pass option on my iPad Pro on the embedded SIM, even though I never purchased the pass on that SIM before. I used it often on the physical Apple SIM, though.

  7. Good catch, thanks for this post!

  8. $75. But if you have T-Mobile One voice plan, you get $50 discount, plus $5 for auto pay. That makes it $20.

    1. You're comparing a standalone plan with a bundle plan.

  9. If one already has a T-Mobile One phone line then they can add unlimited tablet data for only $20 monthly (taxes included). The AT&T deal will be a decent stand alone plan when combined with a Google Voice number. This way you get unlimited talk, text, and data for $30 if it lasts. I wonder if they throttle video to 480p???

    2. Google voice needs regular cell phone circuits, not sure how you think gv works on tablets, but within the gv app it already knows it's a tablet hehe no phone call symbol, even if it did it wouldn't matter. Please don't tell me you're taking about Hangouts?!

      Delete
    3. I use hangouts over mobile data all day, never had any issues. Phone, tablet & computer.

      Delete
    4. I've used GV for several years. I set it to ring multiple lines plus Hangouts. It's nice to be able to answer or place a call from a tablet or laptop in hand. Call quality has always been excellent for me but if you have poor data access in your area it may be a challenge.

  10. I guess it would be to helpful to post a link and actually find this plan.

  11. Stream saver not available for this plan? Weird, seems to good to be true, $30 for unlimited tablet data, now if I could actually purchase it!

    1. No, the tablet plans are also available for Android and Windows Surface tablets.

  13. Verizon laid off over 5000 workers, brought back unlimited and is getting more serious about Prepaid. The pressure from T-Mobile puts pressure on the big two, the consumer wins.

    1. "Verizon laid off over 5000 worker"

      You can't blame Verizon. The CWA won in its recent battle against Verizon and its workers, forcing the company to fire a lot of people.

    1. A 6 inch or smaller tablet?

      I can't imagine any other than a "typical modern cell phone, but you don't make calls or text on it".

      Delete
  15. What I want is a small tablet with sim accessibility so that I can make that my phone.
    I cannot use an 8 inch as a phone, its just not small enough for me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What you want doesn't exist. The tablet plan is data only and is only available with devices that AT&T recognizes as tablets. The smallest of those is 7".

      You could use Hangouts or another VoIP app for calling with a tablet. If you don't want to be seen talking into a tablet use a Bluetooth headset and keep the tablet out of sight in a bag or a big pocket.

      Delete
    2. Or you can use a secondary device small phone and get a truphone sim card so incoming calls are free when youre on the usa but have to maintainly with 90 days per call.

    1. AT&T doesn't say. Maybe cameras or watches. Not hotspots or laptops as AT&T has separate more expensive plans for them.

      7GB of data for 30 days $50.00 AT&T DataConnect Pass plans for Tablets and Other Mobile Devices is the only plan 'officially" that supports mobile hotspot use through the tablet itself. if you are not on that plan i promise you will not get any kind of mobile hotspot. You will need a/the AT&T tablet to have at&t mobile hotspot on it and then it will check to see if your plan qualifies for mobile hotspot.no i do not know about the AT&T GoPhone Hotspots, but like i said the device/app will check automatically to see if the "plan" qualifies for mobile hotspot usagee.

  19. Maybe, it's a loophone if it works. The only way to know for sure is to try it.

  20. It asks for a Sim number to check eligibility, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The tablet sould be purchased from AT&T?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just purchased this plan. Its $29.99 no taxes. At At&t store they had no clue. I have an ipad, bought a GoPhone SIM kit opened up the ipad link above and used a prepaid reloadable card. The credit debit card must have your name on it and address linked to it. Oberall good. Does seem throttled tho.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Do they throttle the video on the tablet plan that's all I want to know can anyone please answer that

    ReplyDelete
  24. Video is not throttled. And if you have a jailbroken ipad you can do hotspot.

  25. I just want to comfirm that this work on my att hotspot. The 30 unlimted plan work on att zte mf923v2.3

    1. Were you able to use the Hotspot's IMEI to activate the plan or did you use a tablet's IMEI?

    2. I activate a Ipad Pro 9.7 and then took the sim out and try it on the hotspot and it work. So there is a loophole tho this thing after all. You and have unlimted data on the this way without having a 9.7 tablet carring around.

      Delete
  26. He would have had to have used a tablets IMEI, then transfered the SIM to the AT&T Mobile Hotspot. I tried to activate a GoPhone Hotspots' IMEI and it does work BUT the only plans that come up for it are the AT&T DataConnect Pass Plans for *Computers*.

  27. Can't at &t eventually recognize that the Sim is in a device other than the one you signed up for?
