HP Slate Sim/Datapass

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Sun Jun 29, 2014 10:08 am

Most of you know I have a HP Slate IN RED

Image

It comes with a Datapass.... and this is the info on that..
"No Wi-Fi? No problem. The HP Slate10 HD comes with HP DataPass included, giving you 3G+ mobile broadband for 2 years. Ready out-of-the-box, turn on, register, and go with up to 250MB per month with no contract, no credit card and no overage fees. Plus, get rich, vibrant colours from the 10" HD display and premium sound from Beats Audio™.

So my question is this...do I really need a sim to replace this datapass? It lasts for 2 years...

No, not unless it works out cheaper to use another sim after the 250 is used each month (if you use that much data)....

Don't think I do really....Also the Slate will be used in my WiFi'd apartment and here (also on Wifi)...I presume the datapass is over-ridden when using Wifi?

Do you know if after 2years the Datapass could be 'topped up'..?

Yes correct. No data will be used if connected to WiFi.
You can you it up yourself after the 2 years - It's just a T Mobile sim rebadged.

*Coughs in embarrassment*....what does 'Its a T mobile sim rebadged mean?' ...You mean the Datapass is T mobile? (and while I am at it...how do you know that?)

Question asked in a non challenging way of course.... Does HP have links with T mobile?

Blimey how do folk know all this stuff? :legend

(Do you want to know about a cholecystojejunostomy????) :lol :lol
