The unlimited data plan comes with 500mb of hotspot by default. Options are available to add 2.5gb for $10 or 4.5gb for $20.

No you do get free mobile hotspot. Only 500MB of mobile hotspot w/ truly unlimited. If you want more, you can add 2.5GB for $10, 4.5 for $20 and so on up to 12GB.

Ah, didn't notice the guy up top posted the same thing. What he said.

I have the T-mobile Simple $50+20 unlimited plan and it comes with free mobile hotspot, not just unlimited but only 500mb. I've added $10 for an additional 2GB worth of mobile hotspot, bringing a total of $80.

EDIT: Ooops 2 posted above said the same thing

I hope I can still use a tmobile sim for a AT&T iPad mini, I'm only going to do this since I lost my unlimited hotspot. It would only add $30 to my bill.

You will have to use T-Mobile data only sim in the iPad. Any other SIM card will direct you to a sign up page. For 3.5GB data, it costs $35.

No. There are two $70 unlimited plans, one postpaid and the other prepaid. The prepaid has no hotspot and you can not buy any. The postpaid has 500MB free and more for set prices.
