I've been looking into T-Mobile Monthly 4G, after just ending my previous contract.
These are the phones available on the Prepaid plans:
Prepaid Phones | Pay as You Go Android Cell Phones | T-Mobile
I'm pretty poor, atm, but am re-locating to a cheaper more affordable place.
So, I have two options. I could just save another month or two (I've been without a cell for like a month, and it's actually freeing). But I did like using the Data plan I had, watching videos, playing games, etc.
So, if I were to go and just get a cheaper phone right now, it'd be between the:
Samsung Dart Phone | Reviews, Accessories, Specs, Details | T-Mobile
Samsung Dart, $99. However, when you scroll down to additional features, it doesn't say anywhere it supports usb tethering...
Second (cheaper) phone: T-Mobile Comet.
Refurbished Comet in Black | No Annual Contract | Prepaid | T-Mobile
Initially, I thought that the Dart would be a much better choice. But I did a few head/head reviews, and they basically seemed the same. The Dart had a little more of something, but IIRC it was nothing worth worrying over. Also, this phone does clearly state in the additional features section that USB Tethering is supported.
The lady I spoke with told me if I were to go with the Dart, I would need to get that stupid Mobile Hotspot Ready for $15 extra. However, if I have a wireless router, could I just be like "LOL NO U"? Or, if I were to just go with the Comet, would my phone allow for Wi-Fi Sharing and hotspots?
Can someone explain the three? Obviously, I know tethering via USB to PC, using your phone's data to browse the web.
The other two, if I have a wireless router, could I not simply use that?
