Data Internet

Just curious is the AT&T 3 months 3GB data plan limited in speed? I've never seen anything other than 3G on the display?

I tried my T-Mobile SIM card and can confirm it's not locked to AT&T. It took awhile to get a signal, then when it did it displayed 3G and then shortly after 4G.

Good to know because I get T-Mobile data for only $10 a month which is half price of AT&T.

Thanks for this! I have an extra data only SIM card with Google Fi.

Also just curious I don’t see a purpose of a data plan. A Tesla can stream music but with the I-pace you can’t. So yes you can browse the internet but aside from that what else would you use a data connection for?

As others have noted, it seems to supply live traffic. I yanked the SIM out and don't have live traffic any more.

Yes you can stream music. Have you checked out the Live apps? There's a variety of podcasts from Tune In that you can stream. There's also Deezer. But I haven't been able to make that work.

I can't get Deezer to work either.
Surprised to learn T-Mobile SIM works. I called Verizon to get a Verizon sim and after giving them my imei they said their sim wouldn't work in my car. Hmm

Data Workaround

For me, the easiest and cheapest data workaround is to set up my phone as hotspot and connect I-Pace to it. Stream music, live traffic, etc.

Verizon would probably work for 4G, but going into areas w/o 4G wouldn't allow it to fail back to 3G because the modem in the car only supports LTE+GSM, no CDMA which is required for Verizon 3G

What does that get you over just using the phone with bluetooth?

I am assuming bluetooth can only be used for streaming music and phone calls, live traffic would require the Jaguar navigation to have internet connectivity. Unless you use Waze/Google Maps which will require you to connect thru Android Auto/Apple CarPlay via a USB cable.
