From what I can tell, this is available now. Does anyone actually have it, and if so, does it suffer from the same ol AT&T iPhone no MMS limitation?

If the new premium SIMs use the standard Red Pocket iOS carrier bundle, then I believe MMS should be supported (best guess).

When selecting "Premium" and "iPhone" in APN generator, this config URL is loaded:
download.freedompop.com.s3.amazonaws.com/ios/Freedompop-US-Premium-LTE.mobileconfig
...which appears to be identical to:
ios.redpocket.com/redpocket.mobileconfig

Unreal APN generator:

Sadly, I contacted Unreal and they said with GSM, there is no native MMS. So, now I'm trying to find out if any A1863 iPhone (iPhone 8 unlocked) can be brought in, not sure of the current rules for Sprint and byop.

Unreal does make a distinction between "GSM" and "Premium" (both use AT&T). I am wondering if Unreal rep was addressing only their GSM (VoIP) service. The fact that the Premium SIM cards start with 89014 and APN/carrier bundle apparently same as Red Pocket suggests MMS may be supported, though I cannot confirm. Good luck.

From what I can tell on the site, the plans seem to have hotspot. I do have a temporary need for a relatively low use a&tt hotspot line. Has anyone tried it without any modifications or software (e.g. PDA net).

I'm not sure if this still holds, and it is drawn from my experience with the FreedomPop plans:
Hotspot was not officially supported. It worked on unlocked phones that were not AT&T branded, and did not work on AT&T branded devices. Basically, if the phone didn't check to see if it was allowed, it worked.
Even if not officially supported, management didn't seem to go out of their way to prevent hotspot use on a phone, or use of a phone SIM in a MiFi..

I had assumed the same situation existed at Unreal. I don't know whether the recent APN change affects the situation.
I've read through some of Unreal's online information, and do not see a mention of 'hotspot' outside of dedicated MiFi devices.

Thanks! That little hotspot on the top right of the plans images (when you click on that banner) is what keeps messing me up. When I shop for plans, nothing on hotspot just the phone and 3 in 1 SIM. Probably looking too hard. All that would be needed is the hotspot and for that short period. Data use would be minimal (1GB at most).

Like a lot of stuff on their site, there are things that are holdovers from the 'old' Unreal, and current info. I think the SIM/Phone/Hotspot images are a holdover, referring to the old 'LTE SIM'/CDMA Phone/Hotspot options.
