The Alcatel LINK ZONE can still be ordered by dialing in to customer care or you can pick one up in the store. I'm not 100% sure why it's not available on the website, though. My best guess would be that there are so many different data/IoT plans available now that it might be better to have a rep set you up properly.
I imagine there are just as many or more voice/text/data plan combinations for smartphones. It seems odd that hotspots would be so complicated that they need individual attention.
Regardless, I'm relieved to hear that T-Mobile isn't dropping hotspots. I've been using them for years and really like them.
