4 days in standby and 4.5 hours at full use. I use it to answer phone calls so it is most of the time in standby and in this case will require only a normal recharging rate like any phone. If you use it to access internet all day long better to hook it up to a power source all day too.

The word unlimited plan is like the word permanent job, it is more like a marketing thing than anything else. It is unlimited until you reach the maximum bandwith (500MB, 3.5 GB, 5GB, etc, according to your plan) and then slow down to 2G where you will be downloading from around 6000MB/s (on 4G) to as little as 3MB/s (on 2G), and maybe less if the signal is bad. The plan at $30 is for a phone. This is not a phone, it is a broadband device requiring a broadband sim, and the plan you can get is $35(3.5GB) and $50(5GB).

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:
