The kit comes with a Nano SIM and adapters for phones that use Mini and Micro SIM cards. Just about any unlocked GSM device should work as Cricket is powered by AT&T’s network. It’s the beauty of a Bring Your Own Device program, you don’t have to buy a new phone when you switch networks.

Plans start at $35 a month for unlimited talk, text, and “slow data” with 2.5GB of LTE “fast data”.  This pricing includes taxes and fees.

AT&T adds Unite mobile hotspot to GoPhone prepaid line up

netgear-unite-white-450x350Adding a little more data flexibility to prepaid services, AT&T is offering up a handy mobile hotspot to the GoPhone line up.

The Netgear Unite is an LTE enabled rectangle about the size of a deck of cards which shares a 4G data signal with up to ten devices. It’s controlled via a bright 2.3″ color touchscreen, and the battery life should be good for around 10 hours of sharing.

Throwing a product like this to prepay is an interesting move. For families or small workgroups who might not need this kind of functionality mainline all the time, but they can fire it up and pay for the usage when they need it.

The Unite will launch with two basic plans 250MB for $15 a week, or 5GB for $50 a month. It’ll be available starting November 12th for $99.99, and you should be able to find it online and at Walmart.

More details after the jump.
