"Great Product"on by garyk92
Pros After using the Samsung Lte Mobile hotspot for 2 weeks it was a pleasure to trade that unit in for the Mifi Hotspot. It has a much stronger signal and does not lockup or lose it's signal or connection like the former unit I had. Only been using it for a
Cons Some have complained about not being able to use this unit when charging with your laptop, but if you read the instructions, the usb cable is designed to update the unit, not charge it.
Summary Highliy reccomend this unit. It is small, holds a decent charge and has great features.
"Pack of lies"on by suesandbag
Pros very few...
Cons Media is used super fast, no way to check your usage.
Summary I have had the device 5 days. Used it twice for two hour long skype calls, and my 4 gig ($60 month) plan is all used up. Not that I would have known that as the internet porthole where you can check your time is not set up. In fact I have called customer service every day about some problem with the device, each time they told me that I have used very little of my time. Until it ran out in the middle of an interview. Terrible service a waste of money. So if I return the device there is a $35 restocking fee, + the $35 activation fee, and $60 monthly usage. So the one and a half skype calls I got from the hot spot ended up costing $130.... what a rip off!
Pros Works fine, has a port for an external antenna, long bty life
Cons none that I can find
Summary Feel like I need to defend this little unit. I'm now quite happy but I, too, was majorly disgusted because mine dropped out constantly even after installing the firmware fix. After 9 months I tried again:called verizon and they replaced it. Works like a charm now. They will honor the 1yr warranty, they just had some bad units.
Pros Verizon investors keep you in their clutches
Cons Unit barely works. Forced to switch to this unit from the old USB model, kicking me into another 2 year contract. Verizon claimed "firmware update" would fix it -WRONG! - will not take it back, wants to charge me $150 to buy myself out. Criminal.
Summary Unless you want to pay Verizon for the privilege of being a product tester for their forays into novel technologies, avoid this mess and buy a phone with a hotspot.
