Alas, no. To activate data (as well as the wifi hotspot feature) requires getting an AT&T subscription, or doing an add-on, if you are already an AT&T customer.Hi,
I sit possible to use our own LTE data SIM for car wifi rather than Starlink one?
My phone is T-Mobile. I like that with both (AT&T via the car, T-Mobile natively), I rarely ever run into situations where I don't have coverage (just in a few of the rural "Verizon only" areas or the rural "no one at all" areas). Especially beneficial since I have WiFi Calling on the phone.Ok thanks for that. I'm ok if it's throttled. I'll likely never hit that anyways, but it's good to know I'll at least be able to stay connected just in case. I am planning a cross-country trip, so the data needs to keep flowing!
There is a good chance they're using an embedded or eSIM, so not possible to pop in a Fi data only. Even if they are using a physical SIM it is likely buried in a module, possibly under a screen can. Besides if you could swap them it would mess up Starlink if you're using it.Anyone know where the sim card for the wifi is located, would be nice to just slide one of the Google Project Fi sims in and see what happens. Fi offers a free sim for data share, I have it on my wife's acct as she never gets close to using her monthly data. Fi uses T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular for coverage.
We use Tiles on and off and with Fi we pay attention to our data usage and never noticed a spike like that. Maybe something weird was going on.I purchased one of those "Tile" trackers. Put it on my key ring and turned on blue tooth on my phone. The first two weeks I had it active, I used 21 GB of data on my phone plan. Ouch. Never really thought about it consuming all that data. Good thing I have "free" unlimited talk, text, data with Sprint.
