In January 2020, they had a change in ownership and some pretty significant changes to their plan options. They are now owned by Kwasi Duah, who also owns another AT&T MVNO called Kasa Mobile.
Under i3 Group they initially offered unlimited high speed data plans. In January 2020, they made changes and capped the unlimited plans at 100GB of data. And now as, of February 2020, the 100GB is now gone and the largest data plan they offer is a 30GB plan.
i3 Mobile offers a limited number of phones for sale as well as the Netgear Nighthawk hotspot. You can also bring your own device. Any device that is compatible with the AT&T network should work on i3 Mobile, as should unlocked T-Mobile phones. If you have a question about whether or not your current phone will work on their network, they have a device Compatibility Checker on their site.
All of their phone plans offer unlimited talk and text in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, as well as to/from Mexico and Canada.
Their previous unlimited/100GB plans were subject to network management after 22GB and video streaming is provided at a minimum resolution of 480p. As of 2/2020, they have not updated their language on their site to reflect the terms of the newer 30GB plans so we are unsure if the plans are subject to network management, but it seems likely.
Also, it is noted that i3 will terminate service if a data device (i.e. a hotspot) is activated on a phone plan. Data devices must be activated on data plans only.
