This service is 3G only. Even if you have a 4G capable phone, the service only sends out up to 3G speed data.

The fine print says 3G, thus the reason for the lower price. Good catch. It is also limited to 3G up until the first 2.5gb then you are slowed to 2g speeds (dial up)

Yes, as long as it is UNLOCKED by AT&T to be used on other networks.

answer 2
AT&T phones work on the T-Mobile network for voice and 2G data, but any faster data speed (3G, 4G, 4G-LTE) will probably not be available because T-Mobile uses different frequencies.

If you have a five year old 2G phone, you'll never notice a difference. If you have a 4G phone, data speeds will drop as it goes to 2G.

You might want to check your model of phone with any T-Mobile shop.

You can use your own phone but it needs to be unlocked first. You can ask ATT to unlock it or go to smart phone unlocking services for a fee, either way.

You can only use GSM phones, and Verizon phones aren't GSM.

No. This service is powered by T-Mobile's nation-wide network. It will work with any T-Mobile phone or unlocked GSM phone. The two major GSM carriers in the U.S. are T-Mobile and AT&T.

Short time service

I stay out of the country for 6 month every year. Can I use this plan for 6 months and stop for 6 months and then reactivate again? Do I need to purchase new SIM card again? Do I keep my number in safe custody?

You will not need to purchase a new Sim card and you can suspend your number so you won't lose it the six months you are out of the country.

I doubt you can keep your phone number if you have no service for that number. When you terminate service with your current provider, since they "own" your number they have to return it to the pool of unused numbers.

Before you terminate service here and then go overseas, you might consider transferring the number to one of the very low budget prepaid providers, or one of these $10/month ultra-basic providers.

i switched from Verizon a couple of week ago. Verizon operates on CDMA technology as opposed to GSM for TMO. So, as far as I know, you cannot use your phone, unless its a world phone that has both CDMA and GSM...

Yes you can. I set up my parents' iPhone 4s with this sim kit. You have to get your AT&T phone unlocked first with the AT&T sim in place. Then you can install the t-mobile sim and then have your phone number ported over by t-mobile. You do need to qualify with AT&T for the unlock. Use this link to find out how
