Is this even technically possible. I dont know enough about the two networks to know.
Also does this tablet allow wifi hotspot.
I have an itchy mouse finger to order one

The tablet is unlocked and you can use a tmobile micro sim card on it, however, I'm not sure if Tmobile's AWS band is supported. In worst scenario, if AWS is missing and you're not in a refarmed 1900MHz area, you might get only edge speed on it.

easier and cheaper solution: buy the wifi model and use your phone as hotspot.

Out of all the questions about whether T-Mobile AWS bands are present...I never saw an answer so I went to the FCC...according to them...no. No testing was done for it and you can see that here at the FCC filing page. It uses WCDMA Bands II/V so unfortunately no go.

I was too hoping it was like the Nexus 7 and had T-Mobile bands. I actually had no idea that the Nexus 7 HSPA+ and LTE are one in the same device until I bought the LTE version from Fry's and found out it works with my T-Moible HSPA+ sim card lol
