What is T-Mobile Test Drive?
T-Mobile is amping one of its original Un-carrier movies — Test Drive — to give everyone a chance to try the Un-carrier's expanded LTE network and see how our newest, most powerful signal — 600 MHz Extended Range LTE — reaches further than ever before. With Test Drive, you can try T-Mobile's LTE network for up to 30 days for FREE — all with your own phone, phone number and apps.

To participate, sign up above and you’ll receive a pocket-sized hotspot to connect to your current phone to experience a T-Mobile's best network yet. After 30-days or 30GB of data, whichever comes first, you can return the device to any T-Mobile store or pass it on to a friend.

Mine says activate by: September 2021!!

This product does not work with other Sim cards, unless they are under T-Mobile. (For example: simple mobile would work, and at&t won't)

Interestingly enough, when I put in a at&t sim card and accessed the device's settings, it allowed me to put it in a unlocking pin.
I wonder how easy it is to unlock!

For those of you out there wondering what in the world to get this thing for, just bear in mind that it comes with a free charger wire and adapter!
That sounds like just the wording on the sim card.
Sim cards always have a date printed and it's nothing to do with this plan

I wonder if turning on data roaming in the settings would help.

When connected to wifi go to 192.168.0.1 in your browser.

For all those who have an active hotspot, sign up for T-Mobile Tuesdays using your Free test drive number, and receive free $3 at Starbucks!!

While connected to hotspot go on http://mobile.hotspot (default code is: admin) and hit "SMS" to view your texts.

When I click the wifi it opens a "connect me" page & after clicking "get started" its buffering for a few minutes & then I get "Error opening page. Hotspot login cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server".
What am I doing wrong ?

Sim card expired... you have to call them they should send you a new one.

In September, but I thought it starts from when you put it in.
