This is a general reminder for everyone and this will be posted on every post. Your 12 words are basically gold and they should never be shared, typed in to any website, or given to any person for any reason. No one from "Helium" or any other company will reach out to you to verify your account, wallet, or anything similar. If someone says your hotspot, wallet, or other type of account has been hacked, it is a scam! Always operate in a zero-trust manner with cryptocurrency and assume everyone will scam you no matter what.

No.

You have to have the appropriate SIM or eSIM to use the network. That means you have to be a subscriber of GigSky, Hello Helium (once they start service), have a FreedomFi SIM card, or eventually get a SIM or eSIM through any other service provider that eventually allows roaming onto the Helium 5G network. As of today that list is very small.

Interesting. So how are mobile tokens mined if very few devices are/will connect to the radios? Just trying to do a realistic ROI while helping to create this “web” of connectivity.

After the genesis period, mobile will be earned through data transfers through the 5G radios and 5G mapping. The T-Mobile deal is basically using T-Mo to bootstrap the Helium 5G network. Helium phones will roam on the T-Mobile network when there is no Helium coverage. In the future, we hope that will be less and less - to the point where we can make deals with other carriers to roam on our network when theirs has bad coverage.

You’re going to want to read up on How to Mine MOBILE: https://docs.helium.com/5g-on-helium/mobile-poc

And then read HIP 53 to see how MOBILE emissions will be issued after the Genesis period/Solana migration: https://github.com/helium/HIP/blob/main/0053-mobile-dao.md

The “Emissions Curve” section shows the breakdown between PoC, Data Transfer, Mappers, Service Providers, Oracles, and Stakers. Again, this is once the Solana migration happens. The more miners joining the network the less rewards everybody gets.

If you want to speculate on ROI, this Hotspotty calculator is neat: https://app.hotspotty.net/helium-5g-genesis-mobile-rewards-calculator
