I'm not using either of the sims in the phone whose IMEI I used to activate.  have swapped the two sims among 5 different phones including an iPhone with no issues.

I’m contemplating on trying this beast sim on hotspot or iPad to see if the data works 
let you know the outcome 
Update: The sim does work in both my hotspots the net gear 9c48 and MR1100 nighthawk. The sim also tethers on my iPhone as well. Haven’t got it to work on my  iPad mini 3

Looks like they've changed things again - www.beastmobile.net/shop  shows $20/month as the lowest-priced plan. No mention of any free plan anywhere.

Received a response for Beast. The data is hard capped at 1GB.

I ordered one and am trying to activate.  Did you call 800-756-0240 ?

Also, the landing page seems to have changed and now, the option seems to be that you have to buy an LG K40.  Plus, the free service is only for a year.

I don't think the (current) free plan ever appeared on beastmobile.net-- always from that parallel offer.

I did. Just don’t port from att or att mvno there is a extra step beast put you through to get the number released.  I ordered sim it take as long as 5 days to come in mail. Don’t call the beast phone number no one answers. You need to email salesATbeastmobile.com  (AT =@) send in SIM card number and phone imei number name and address they will ask for

I think that should be beastmobile.NET not ".COM".

This really seems too good to be true for sustainability especially with no Ad revenue APP but you never know.... :)

.... actually.... I'm pretty sure we do know.....

Without a functioning (and required) app, the more relevant question is probably how long the free ride will last.


Well, I have learned to not be too arrogant in my assumptions as FreeUP (with zero profit/income and only goodwill as a motivation for grandfathered 100% free plans ongoing) and FreeMii (with zero profit/income and only goodwill as a motivation for grandfathered 100% free plans ongoing) have proven me wrong (as with everything in life: for now, YMMV etc.). I think BeastMobile might have the best motivation for keeping a positive image so far as it is a celebrity's vanity project with his "name/persona" embedded within the company name.

Do these SIMs need to be set up for a specific APN? I called and got it activated today, but I checked later and the SIM doesn't seem to work (reports that it's an ATT SIM, but no phone number gets sent to the phone and data doesn't work). Only see the standard ATT APN, not an MVNO APN like I would expect and I received just the SIM card with no paperwork.
