When I signed up for the $100 credit on Black Friday, Wind was also offering the $25 bring-your-own-phone deal too (now $5o on Boxing Day). The rep said that the system would only accept one promo code, so it was my choice if I wanted the $100 or the $25 credit. Obviously I took the $100. Maybe the rep was wrong, but it sounds like code stacking is not possible.

So can you combine the phone promotion and the $100 service credit promotion?

How to do this? I did some research, and people from xda said they can have the internet stick work with Nexus 7 tablet via PPP Widget.
Very easy. Just input the mobile internet APN instead of the phone APN and your set.

Ok, I think you mean just insert the sim to a compatible phone and do the data network set up? Right? You will not need the USB adapter.

Oh ya... thought it was obvious that you needed to insert the SIM into the phone. The only trouble, if you want to call it that, is setting up the phone to use the mobile internet APN instead of the phone internet APN.

It's my bad, I have yet to get the Nexus 4 phone, and right now only have the Nexus 7 tablet, so all my thought is about how to hook up the USB stick to the tablet.

Of the two internet stick they offer, E1691 and E366, all should be free with the wintab, right? Which one would you suggest, will the 4G version (E366) worth it?

PS: Somewhere I read you may need the 4-digit pin for the SIM card, is that easy to obtain? Really am thinking about get it work with the Nexus 7 now. As rumor is Google's own X phone is on the way. :D

ice cold, $25 is not unlimited mobile internet. it's actually 5GB then they slow you down to DIAL UP speeds.

I think this plan is: Unlimited (10GB/mo full speed) Internet. So it doubles what the 'unlimited' Phone plan has.

Try getting it right. It's 10 gb. And they are very upfront about it.

Anybody know what the return policy is on the plan/data stick if the coverage doesn't work in your area?

I just got a hot spot (before the promo). It's 14 days. If you are on a phone less than 30 mins talk time, with just data devices there is no limit. It you do post paid you should get everything back (minus the sim cost? But I think everything). With prepaid you just loose what the plan is worth, ie you don't get your prepaid usage back.

Does anyone know when Wind stores will be open on boxing day? Will it be their normal store hours? I would like to try and get the $100 credit.

How is the battery life for the hot spot? Should the 7.2 Mbps download and 5.76 Mbps upload speed be a concern?
