Yep this is carrier specific configuration at hand which some manufactures allow... This is what would block hotspots if your plan doesn't allow it, blocks network changing, has the auto data warning at 2gb...

Some manufactures like lg, OnePlus I've seen don't enable it so free from at&t specific.

Google does allow it, I might get a one plus pro 7 next.

Also I believe in regards to apple, there is jailbreak apps to disable there checks and enable custom settings.

Had to kick someone out of my 25GB plan group because they missed two bills.
Spot opened at 34.80 CAD/month (May fluctuate based on exchange rate).

Person who accepts will need to send a $40 deposit (refundable if leaving group and not used to cover missed bills ) and cover the purchase of the new SIM card ($11) and shipping ($2). Pickup if in Toronto.

I'd like to get into a group, but I'm sort of curious what others do (for a non-dual SIM phone) to have access to their Canadian number? Or at the very least what the most ideal solution is these days for porting and parking my current Canadian number?

OpenPhone is another good one where you can port over your number.

Hi,

Has anyone tried putting these 25GB or Unlimited Data AT&T plans simcard into a LTE tablet (iPad/Samsung) in Canada? Would the data still work as expected, similar on a phone? Any restrictions? What's your experience like?

I'm currently on the AT&T unlimited plan with the SIM card in my phone and has been without issue, only hotspot restriction as in accordance to the plan.

I'm considering purchasing an LTE Samsung tablet/iPad and transferring my unlimited AT&T sim card onto the LTE tablet/iPad because I have a grandparent that is stuck in a seniors home and she's been burning through her phone's data with YouTube during the lock down.

I don't necessarily need the hotspot function, just data on the LTE tablet itself is sufficient.

Thanks in advance.

I already answered this in my last two posts.

AT&T Prepaid specifically has plans for tablets and mobile hotspots: AT&T Prepaid Data plans for tablets and mobile hotspots

Q: Can an AT&T PREPAID tablet customer roam internationally?

A: International data roaming is not available at this time.

That's the downside of using apps. I think they're all like that.
