    For the most part, no. Better off going with Verizon, Sprint or AT&T. They offer discounts. I just got one from Vzw even tho I’m a primary T-Mobile customer.

    Verizon and T-Mobile charge $20 (plus tax with Verizon) for unlimited data, provided you already have a line of service with them.

    Be aware though that if you buy an iPad through verizon, that they restrict the esim so that you can not use it with ANY carriers at all. When you go to add a new plan, no carriers will show up at all, not even Verizon. They ship their iPads with a Verizon sim card in the slot.​

    AT&T does the same thing but the only carrier that shows up in add a new plan is AT&T.

    I don't know if T-Mobile does the same thing. You're better off buying from a store like apple or bestbuy.

    The question was about discounts. Verizon is not only offering $100 off the device by itself, but they also offer a $15 a month plan for 1GB a month. We don’t all need unlimited. Additionally, they don’t even charge full tax for the device. So, it’s a good deal even after plan+taxes. Can’t speak for AT&T in the long run. Again, I see that they offer money off the iPad. T-Mobile does not. Quick browse through each webpage will confirm.

    Good to know! I had gotten my last iPad on a promotion with Verizon but it sounds like that isn’t likely to happen with t mobile. The rep said to wait until fall and maybe for back to school? But my current one will be out of warranty soon and I’m afraid I’ll break it and render it trash before then. Lol.
