I was in an AT&T store today to buy the pre-paid 100 GB per $55 a month data plan and because the pepwave max transit 5G isnt certified or registered in their system yet (I guess) my charm granted me the opportunity to use what the manager of the store referred to as a generic hotspot IMEI.
Perhaps this will be an interesting experiment on Deprioritization and throttling of data since AT&T will think that I’m using one of their hotspots versus the pepwave.
He said once the certification process is complete I can contact him and he can update the IMEI however I wonder if I should just forever keep the AT&T hotspot IMEI and never change it until I die.
And as you can probably tell I am quite new to all of this but excited to be experimenting with it.
It’s all very interesting to me seeing as I’ll be living full-time in a DIY camper van working remotely in and around national parks
