So many of our customers go straight to a T-Mobile store and pay up to $70 for the wrong plans that don't work with our watches, like the incorrect "wearable" plan. But SpeedTalk uses T-Mobile networks so you get the same coverage. There is no reason to pay extra with T-Mobile! You can set up your plan online, in 5 minutes, with SpeedTalk. Please read the Quick Start Guide for more instructions on setting up your service plan with SpeedTalk. We recommend a $9 special monthly plan from SpeedTalk. Please remember to REFILL before your current plan expires. You can set up auto recharge, it's a convenient way to never run out of minutes.
T-Mobile: If you’re already a T-mobile user, you can add a new line to your family plan making it more affordable. MAKE SURE YOUR T-MOBILE PLAN IS A REGULAR PHONE PLAN WITH AT LEAST 100MB DATA. ANY "PAY AS YOU GO", "WEARABLE","DIGITS" OR "TABLET" plan IS NOT COMPATIBLE with the TickTalk. If you purchase the wrong plan,; when you place your SIM into the watch, it'll say EMERGENCY, INVALID SIM or NO SERVICE. When you get the SIM card in T-mobile store, please ask the sales rep to put the SIM card into a regular cell phone to test if it can make calls, send text message and go online. This is to make sure you leave with a compatible SIM card that is activated, working meaning you have the correct plan.
