I would like a TMO plan for sending SMS only from a 4G USB Modem Dongle. I don't see the TEXT only plan anymore.
What is the best/least expensive plan for this? I am willing to do pre or post paid.
Not happening you need to get an actual plan
The only plans they have is the T-Mobile One plans. However using a dongle will not allow you to text.
I have written about this previously in a post... There are specific plans that are for people who are deaf or have a hearing impairment. I have read years ago after so many deaf and hearing impaired individuals became enraged about being charged for a voice plan when they only need a phone to text, Cellular companies tailored cell plans to fix that issue. So people who are deaf won't waste hundred of dollars a month on services that is impossible for them to use.
In order to get these special plans, you have to contact customer service directly. I actually remebered seeing AT^T advertising it on their site... but i dont see it posted anymore. I don't believe you even have to prove you have a hearing disability. And I believe all of the BIG cell companies provide these plans. Now as I read you want some sort of dongle device... I have no clue about that.... but I know they can provide a text and data plan minus the voice feature.
Many customer service reps may not be familiar with these specialized plans, the same as I was not familiar with them, If I had not heard on a news radio station about it. So if the rep says they have no idea about what you are asking for request to speak to a manager. I will look online for a link to these special plans as soon as I find it.
Here is the link:
Those plans do not work with USB data cards which the person wants to use as why I said there is no plan for it.
Welcome and thanks for posting! barcodeable is correct - we do offer what are called "voice barred" plans for customers whose needs don't include a talk plan. However, tidbits is also correct - those plan types are not intended for use with a data card, but for phones. Have you used this equipment with T-Mobile service previously?
Just wanted to check in again to see if you have made any progress!
