    I don't like the plans for at&t so I'm gonna try T-Mobile and see what they offer. I don't want anything that's reoccurring.

    I have the Nexus 7 3G, and activated the AT&T Micro SIM that came along with it. I picked the no-contract $30/month 3GB plan. Just tested it for a day so far, and speeds & coverage seems fair at 2-4Mbps down.

    As much as I despise AT&T, that plan seems better than what T-Mobile offers specially for tablets & internet devices:

    $25/month - 1.5GB
    $35/month - 3.5GB

    After this month expires, I'm going to order a T-Mobile Micro SIM, and see if I can activate that no-contract $30/month plan with unlimited text & data (throttled after 5GB) and 100 talk minutes. Not sure if it'll work with the Nexus 7 since it's a phone plan.

    Yes it works with Tmo. I put my sim card in today and am loving exploring my new toy.

    According to this thread on XDA, the T-Mobile $30 5GB plan does not work with the Nexus 7:

    TMobile $30 5GB plan DOES NOT WORK on Nexus 7 GSM! - xda-developers

    I just got the tablet yesterday, and am going to go with ATT when the time comes. The plans are slightly better than t-mobiles, unless you are looking for only 1.5 GB.
