Free Data for Life is available for eligible tablets that works on T-Mobile's network. For more information, read about Free Data for Life. (This is a new discussion thread created April 20, 2015. Previous posts can still be found in the first discussion thread.)
If your tablet isn't receiving Free Data for Life, but you're on T-Mobile’s data network, we'd like to know. In order for us to add your tablet to our network, we need the first 8-digit portion of the tablet’s 15-digit IMEI number (the IMEI is a unique identifier for a mobile device). These first 8-digits are called a TAC (Type Allocation Code) and simply tells us the make and model of the tablet. And don't worry, no personal information is stored in a TAC.
In the comment thread below, please provide:
With this information, we'll first look up the TAC to make sure that it's indeed a tablet and eligible to receive Free Data for Life. Then we'll configure it to receive Free Data for Life! Plus, when you submit the TAC from your tablet, it'll allow all tablets like yours (make and model) to receive Free Data for Life should someone else decide to activate their tablet on our network.

What is the secret to activating a LG G-pad v410? Some folks on the Internet have reported getting it working but I called T-mobile support and was told they couldn't activate it because it's a phone. I assure it is not a phone (wish it was, that would be cool).
FCC ID: ZNFV410
TAC ID: 01409700
Please add the following device. Thanks!

Can you please add my tablet to Free Data For Life?

T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 LTE Mobile HotSpot
FCC ID: Q78-MF96
Should also mention that when I purchased the T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 LTE Mobile HotSpot last year it was on the list of Free Data for Life devices. And in fact, I did get 200 MB free when I first activated it, but nothing for the following months. I talked with Support, but the rep couldn't figure it out. She suggested that I delete the device from my account and re-add it. I didn't want to mess things up so I left it alone. Still bothers me that I'm not getting what was originally advertised. Hoping this can be resolved.
I tried to contact customer service for 2 weeks, but they always their system recogize the imei as a phone (they said it is iphone4s)
so I gave them all information about my tablet, and finally they updated the system, but after that they said it is not a tablet, it is a phablet.
As you know that the phablet means, tablet with voice call function, but it doesn't have any voice call function.
so can you resolve this problem for me and for the other folks with same problem.
manufacturer : LG
model # : LG V410
original carrier : ATT
so my device was added as an FDL device and is showing up correctly on the Mim.t-mobile.com page, but now is no longer connecting as LTE connection, it's only allowing an HSPA connection, yet if I place my iPad 2 sim in the Dell Venue, it connects as LTE. This is obviously a T-mobile systems problem of not allowing an LTE connection. Please advise proper procedures to correct as I was able to connect LTE before it was added as an FDL device.
And I agree with HappyTraveler, this device was originally on the FDFL list and after a while just didn't work, no explanation and nobody in support could correct it.
Reading over the old thread, I see that you claimed that the hotspot was added for a time, and then removed. What kind of service is that? Some of us bought this device because of the FDFL claim. It's not FDFL if the promotion ends a month later. Please make this right.
