    Do you guys think the 32gb Nexus 7 w/ 3G will work with an already active T-Mo $30 pre-paid plan? I have the SIM in my Galaxy Nexus now. It did not work when I tried it in a T-Mo hotspot. I'm wondering if it will work in a Nexus 7 though. I'd love to be able to swap the sim into the Nexus 7 at times when I need 3G data on the tablet. I have a second work smartphone for calls. Thanks.

    You could always use the gnex as a hotspot and tether the n7 to it

    It won't, but you can get a T-Mobile prepaid MBB SIM.

    Week Pass - 300MB / $15
    Month Pass - 1.5GB / $25
    Month Pass - 3.5GB / $35
    Month Pass - 5GB / $50

    I don't see why it wouldn't. Its an unlocked tablet, not a hotspot/MiFi. But until its released and someone tests it, we can't be sure so sit tight until 11/13.

    My question on this is what if you buy the 5GB for $50 but only use, say 2-3GB? Do you carry the rest over, or do you lose it and have to buy another batch of GB's?

    Shame. You can only use what you buy, or buy what you THINK you'll use and hope not to go over. T-Mob gotcha! Just like all the carriers. How come I can buy so many minutes of pre-paid talk time and don't have to buy more until they're used up, huh T-Mob, huh???

    To set up T-Mobile: Put the sim card in and turn on the device...

    1. Go to setting and turn off wifi.
    2. Select Data Usage\More and select Mobile Networks
    3. Select T-Mobile
    4. The Pull Down notification center will show a ? mark on the cellular bars
    5. Pull down the notification center and there is a selection for t-mobile activation
    6. A web page opens with the activation form...

    Also if you mess-up and don't get the notification panel... Just open Chrome and it will go to the same page with wifi turned off...

    If this helped you... Visit iMindAmbiEnce.com and check out our new app...

    Unfortunately nothing will carry over. I use AT&T which has similar priced plans. I have been purchasing the 3GB plan for $30 (or something like that). Same as T-Mobile if I use less than that on the 30 day period oh well too bad. On the other hand if I use up that data. I can go buy extra 30 days that start from the next time purchased. I know it's not what you wanted to hear but no carrier does prepay or contract that has unused data carrying over.
