A vid on the complimentary first (3) months on the AT&T data plan for the Tremor. Has anyone activated this after the free period?
We have a Verizon plan and not really jazzed about starting another monthly AT&T hotspot data plan with another carrier.

Any scoop or thoughts out there on the practical use of the AT&T plan...anyone using it? Is it worth it?
Not sure it’s worth having/paying for two data plans?

Thoughts appreciated.

Thanks!

Interesting video. I have AT&T but haven't tried this, yet.

I called and got it for $15 since that was what I paid on my last truck. Worth a call to them if you have a good story. We have Verizon phones with hot spots, and since this is ATT we have found better coverage having the two carriers when going on long trips.

Assuming truck needs to be running to use it. Thinking perhaps it could be helpful while camping

AT& T does not have coverage in my weekend camping area so it is completely useless to me. Wish there was an option for another provider :(

I have att for cell phone on s20+ with 5g and I find the truck is so much more faster and has more signal strength... Also the truck wifi is considered business internet it has pulled 250mbps where my phone on 5g pulled 40mbps and I find it is more useful on trips then everyday life but for $20 a month unlimited it really good I already have unlimited on att but have 50gb of 5g and then it slows down this is always a option and the truck has to be on BUT THE ENGINE DOES NOT. Can run it with just Acc power I set my truck to a hour before it turns off and it useful right not being in Moab and road trip it was always a good connection .... But rocky mountains on I 70 it wasn't good ... No service but to be expected I guess

Same, Verizon seems to have better coverage in my camping spot. Too bad I have att for everything.

I would have AT& T for everything except Verizon is the only one that works in my little slice of northern woods. I have to be connected when in the woods since I own and run a business.

Do you need a cc number to set up your 3 month free trial? Does the trial start at purchase or when its set up? Will it work without the Ford Pass app? Im dropping mine soon as I get and use my points.

Yea I need to call and add the truck to my AT&T account. Did the trial on the way home from picking up the truck and the kids blew through the 3GB free trial in 2 hours! Worked great while it lasted lol

Ford Pass App functionality continues to operate after the Trial Period ends (for free). So remote start, lock and unlock doors still works, along with location of vehicle, so I saw no need to continue any data plan since my personal mobile device (Verizon) provides all the data I need when traveling about.
