    Does anyone know the cost to buy a mifi in Thailand. Probably need it for my non-sim tablet if renting an airbnb without wifi ;(

    Thanks I know about the sims and my phone (Tmo) doesn't allow tethering.
    Of course I could stay somewhere else, but this place is a good deal except for the lack of wifi - I usually use the (nonsim) tablet for youtube, etc in English so I'm trying to find out the cost of buying a mifi to see if it makes sense - the ones I can see on Amazon are pretty pricey for a one week use and the rental plans I've seen online for Thailand are too, so I'm trying to see if someone knows to help me decide whether it is worth it to stay at this place

    1) Unlock the phone and put the other SIM in.
    2) Tether.
    3) Winning!

    Unless you cannot get TMo to unlock the phone (and I don't know that they sell any that way anymore) or the physical device itself does not support being a wifi hotspot (i.e. not iOS nor Android or anything else reasonably modern) you should be okay.
