Can I use my Mobile Me from my ipad for the Kindle HD? Also if I can use it do I need to have the Kindle activated?

AT&T no longer does contracts for tablets. It's a pay as you go system.

So you may want to activate it for three summer months that you travel, or for the nine months of a school year - or whatever works for you.

Here are two things to consider:

HOW AT&T makes there money is with activation fees. You can choose to shut off your service for X number of months, but they charge you $36 every time you want to reactivate it.

MAKE SURE you check and see if you are in an AT&T service area or the places you will travel will receive AT&T service. I live on the "edge" and trying to use my data plan is challenging in a concrete building.

If you already have a smartphone from a different carrier, you may want to just use your phone as a hotspot, which would save you money by buying a non-4G device.

Right now, AT&T is saying their 250 plan is $14.99 (Plus tax.) per month. Will that change? Who knows?

Here is the info regarding the 4G data plans from the Support pages.


Can I get more details about the data plan for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless model?

AT&T is the carrier for 4G LTE service on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9'. If you're not currently an AT&T customer, you'll create a new account with AT&T on your Kindle Fire to use the service.

The $49.99 plan for the first 12 months of service includes 250MB a month of data, plus:

20GB of additional Cloud Drive storage
A free $10 Amazon Appstore promotional credit

The $49.99 package is only available in the U.S. International roaming plans are available directly from AT&T. After the first year, you can choose and purchase a data plan directly from AT&T.

If you want more than 250MB a month in the first year, you can choose to purchase 3GB or 5GB plans on your Kindle Fire in addition to the $49.99 plan.

Based on the latest pricing from AT&T, the price plans are $30/mo. for 3GB and $50/mo. for 5GB. For the most up-to-date information, view the pricing plans directly at http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/data-plans.html#fbid=VRkwYL5XZeO

Krio, take a look at AT&T's rates. That will give you a good idea of what they will be after the first year.

Any updates on the second year LTE cost yet? I'm holding back on ordering this till I know the true cost of ownership. Would hate to get used to the LTE and then it gets cost prohibitive after the first year.

When I asked Amazon, they said they didn't know yet, but it was likely that subsequent years would be at the normal AT&T tablet rate plans (currently minimum $15/month plus taxes, etc. in my area). So, no one knows for sure at the present time.

Hi, I can't find what the cost for the 4G service with AT&T will be for the second or subsequent years after the $49 cost for the first year expires? Can anyone answer that question.
I think $49 for 250MB a month for a full year is unbelievable with how outrageous data plans are - what a great deal - but I also wouldn't want to invest if it is going to lock into some term commitment and have it skyrocket in subsequent years??
