Long time listener, first time caller…
I just upgraded my Max BR1 to the Transit 5g with the cat20 radio in the hopes of getting 5G from T-Mobile. I went to the store to sign up for a plan and the 100GB plan is only for 5G devices, no big deal, I wanted to upgrade to something that can handle FirstNet anyway so I took the plunge.
I put in the T-Mobile card on the 100GB plan and couldn’t get on the network. The carrier kept showing wrong (Verizon, AT&T, never T-Mobile). I called up their tech support and was told the 100GB plan is ONLY supported on four devices, their hotspot (forget the model), a Samsung tablet, and two iPad versions.
I validated the router by pulling my pre-paid T-Mobile SIM from my Max BR1 and it came right online, so it does seem that their network isn’t allowing the router to join.
Is anybody else out there using the T-Mobile 100GB plan on the Transit 5G?
