Pros speed ok. and works fairly when connected.
Cons WiFi security does not work with Xp. Seems to connect ok with netbooks and tablets and Ipads. Used to connect to XP ok, but not anymore. No one can tell me why. WiFi security does not work properly.
Summary Verizon does not seem interested in keeping happy customers after spending all the money on advertising to attract them. Had to implement hardware firewall with unsecure access to get all computers connected securely. Been to the store several times and appear to only be interested in phones.
Pros Can get connectivity on the road (albeit spotty)
Cons - Connectivity is in and out
- Pretty much has to be tethered to computer to work. It rarely generates a reliable wifi signal.
- Whenever I did get a wifi signal, I would get maybe a minute or 2 before I had to reboot or tether to my computer.
Summary Stay away. Not worth the hassle. Spend the extra $10-$15 a month on a cable connection.
Pros I can use this anywhere I can get a verizon signal. Quicker then sat and cheaper then sat
Cons Shuts off by itself and have to take out the battery for abouut 15 seconds then put it back in to get it running again. BUT I figured out when and where and why it does this. At home I have a marginal signal that works ok but must overload it as it gets
"Drops Connection!!"on by europa56
Pros Small, very portable, access anywhere - when it works
Cons Powers itself off FREQUENTLY! Was great when first purchased, still great - when it's not powered off!! Evidently there's a trick to getting it on and keeping it on. You have to wear red pants on the fifth Tuesday of the month and turn counterclockwise
Summary Buyer beware .... very cranky device that's great when it works ........
Pros It is small and portable.
Cons It powers off and drops the connection VERY often.
Summary Verizon knows this is a bad product and is unwilling to help me. I was told by a Verizon sales rep. that I could call customer service and file a complaint; but as of right now Verizon is not doing anything to rectify the issue. So I am stuck with a poor quality product that the company knows about and I am paying for each month for the poor service.
