If you do wanna use your Motorola, it's hard to say for sure it'll work better than the Alcatel. This is mainly because it's a Non-T-Mobile device. That also goes for the Verizon device as well. With that being said, it is still possible to bring your own device and use it on our network. We just wanna make you aware of what you can expect if you choose that route. We don't have any news on a Linkzone follow up but we'll keep our device sales page updated with our current lineup of hardware.
Hey there, magenta2168488. Sounds like an exciting project, I don't blame you for wanting to be prepared! It's tough to say whether your Moto would be faster than an Alcatel LINKZONE without a test run. How does your hotspot function seem to work these days? Is there a reason you were looking for a different device? Right now, we've still got the LINKZONE listed on our site -- did you call to check on stock availability? We're not privy to plans for upcoming devices here (though, TBH, if we were, we'd likely be obligated to keep those details under wraps). When it comes to non-T-Mobile equipment, generally speaking, if it's compatible with the T-Mobile network bands & technologies and can be modified in a manner so that you could input Generic T-Mobile data settings, you should be OK -- but it's important to note that if we don't sell a device that also means our engineering team wasn't able to test it, so we've got a Non-T-Mobile phone & software disclaimer that's worth a peek if you're thinking about going that route.
