T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot Training Beginning

We’ve been without any news of the upcoming T-Mobile Mifi’s since the beginning of the month but now, thanks to a  trusted tipster we’ve got the goods on T-Mobile looking to start training on these devices. I’m not sure which of the “Wayne” devices we are looking at in this screen grab, but it’s definitely a 4G Mobile Hotspot device and it includes microSDHC support, SMS capability and of course access to T-Mobile’s 4G network. Providing Wi-Fi for up to 5 devices this will be T-Mobile’s first entrance into the Mifi market. Nothing really new via this document but when sales training begins it’s usually a good indicator of an arrival in the coming weeks, right on schedule.

    Why not get a 4g phone with hotspot capability ?? Device looks about the same size as phone anyway, seems redundant to me.

    • Luis550

      alot of people will use this to replace their home internet and if they just use their phone when they leave so does the internet connection

      • Auser72

        Okay, makes since.

        This will not completely replace home internet due to the current cap of 5gb. Are you serious that people wont come back upset and bitching that kids used it up playing video games and ir downloading? I got people who burn thru a gig in a matter of hours.

      Because it sucks the he’ll out of your phone battery,
      You can’t talk and use the feature at the same time and
      Lastly it is not as fast since Compared to a dedicated
      Midi device. If there wasn’t a need why do all the other
      Carriers sell them?

    Will there be an increase in the 5GB cap to support those 5 devices?

    • tmo bum

      From rumors, there’s an unlimited plan coming out. Wouldn’t be surprised to see it launch with this device.

    At 3M you are not playing games. Not even b,g,n

    How can anyone take the speed claims seriously

    • Anonymous

      You really need to stop assuming that if you get 3Mbps everyone does… I am always around 7-8Mbps where I work, and go to school… The only thing getting old is a bunch of Tmobile Haters in a tmobile forum… Go get a hobby instead of trolling forums dropping negative one liners.

    It all really just depends on where you live and how the moon and stars are aligned, lol! My friend just got a Samsung Galaxy S 4G and was so pissed he didn’t smoke my Vibrant with it. I have a really strong signal where I reside at that gives me consistent 4 to 5Mbps d/l speeds. We ran 10 speed tests and the most he could out gun my Vibrant by was 1.6Mbps, lol! I even beat him a few times! The highest test result he had was 6.9Mbps and mine was 5.3Mbps. This new device that T-Mobile is going to offer is going to be hit and miss, just like anything that Sprint, Clear, Verizon or AT&T offers, watch…

    I want to be excited, but… I pay $45/mo for AT&T home DSL, including taxes and fees – which also gets me free login at AT&T hotspots while on the go. And, there’s no cap. I easily exceed 5 GB (or even 10 GB) in a single shot with a couple of HD TV shows and/or movies downloaded from iTunes plus the stuff my husband does for work, so the cap’s bad for me.

    I just recently got a MyTouch 4G. It’s got the hotspot feature, and it handles up to 4 devices. We use it almost exclusively for the hotspot feature, with calls forwarded to another phone. It has been awesome! Trying to use it as a phone, too, it eats battery like crazy, so I don’t like it for anything else. Using it for the hotspot, well… this past weekend we had to do a bunch of running around and wanted to do searches for stuff on the Internet and maps. We put the MyTouch 4G on hotspot mode and stuck it in a bag. Using the hotspot with a Wi-Fi-only iPad to do the searches and maps, the MyTouch lasted for around 5 hours before it’s battery gave out. It had excellent response most of the time (probably based on signal strength, but we didn’t bother to take it out to check for certain). We were pleased.

    Now, if the MiFi works in conjunction with a router to power the Internet on devices on a home network… the MyTouch doesn’t, so that might be a selling point for us. I guess we’ll see…
