I am visiting Australia for a few days and I bought a SIM card at the airport. Got it activated, works perfectly in my iPhone, in my iPad... but I can't get it to connect if I put it in my "4G T-mobile Hotspot" (unlocked of course, about 5 years old; it is a Huawei UMG587 model). It keeps trying to connect and then drops it. Do I need to enter special information liek APN, password, number?
Thank you all,

Normally devices pick up that info from the SIM when installed.
The APN’s you could try are..
yesinternet (normally for Mobile phone and suggest to try this one first)
connect (mobile broadband)
I wonder if it’s the frequency range of the device that holding it back?
Looked up the stats (pretty sure this is the device, they call it the Sonic 4g
Its not an actual 4g device, t-mobile like to advertise it is, but its still a 3g device.
Band I (UMTS 2100), Band II (1900), Band IV (1700/2100/AWS), Band V (850)
So out of that you only get Band 1 UTMS 2100Mhz (in metro areas this is being re-farmed from 3g to 4g so not a usefull device in Australia.
