it is locked and unlockable. it uses Band IV (1700/2100) and cannot be used in Asia or Europe. Do not confuse with Band I (2100) which is completely different.

The $35 (3.5GB) and $50 (5GB) data plans have a time limit of 60 days, but you must buy the device and service from Wal-Mart to get the 60-day period, if you buy directly from T-Mobile they only give you 30 days! Cheaper plans have a very short time limit (like $15 for one week). Each time you buy a data "refill" card, you get the amount of data for the time specified, i.e. if you buy $35 for 60 days, it will last you either 60 days or until you have used 3.5GB of data. Unless you do a lot of streaming video (or music), you probably won't run out of data before your time limit.

There is another device available that offers data plans with an UNLIMITED time period to use it (as long as you use it at least once a year), but it is a slower (3G) device (not suitable for video streaming) but they are currently out of stock (2/28/2013) on walmart.com:

This is for Band IV (1700/2100) only, and does not work in Europe or Asia. T-Mobile offers a new device this week (March 30, 2013) which can work in Europe but you will have to unlock it to use a broadband SIM from a European provider.

You have to purchase one of the prepaid plan to use with the device, so the cost is the cost of the prepaid plan, and it runs out when you use the amount of the data you purchase, With T-Mobile, they may just thottle you down when you reach your data limit.

Question

Don't need it every month

I would like to buy this for the times I have to be on the road for work, which is only about 3 different months of the year. Can I buy it for just those months? If I don't buy a card for a year can I get a card and it will still work?

Q: Can I buy it for just those months?

A: Absolutely! Prepaid plans are no longer just for minutes, they are for data too! Refer to a T-Mobile or Wal*Mart associate for more details as to how the plans break down. (Also, one may have a current deal that the other may not, please keep that in mind too)

The data plan are designed for light use, web browsing, emails, and the speed is adequate for this use, but is not design for heavy streaming movies, games, etc. This is more for the traveler, needing access to the internet, to check mail, browse the web,
