"Limits on "unlimited data"?"3.5 starson by bukzin
Pros: Looks great if they bill as advertised.
Cons: 3GB limit?
Summary: limits on "unlimited data"Trip report.
We will be in France for 2 1/2 weeks in June.
Ordered the Xcom mifi box with "unlimited data" to use GPS, voice (Line2,
Google Voice) and lots of texts. No video usage.
Approx. how much data might I consume roughly?
I emailed Xcom about data limits and they emailed me back and said
3GB per month. This was info from the Operations Mgr.
I am guessing I may be way over that limit.

Getting on line... tried to test it from home (California) and my ipad sees/receives the wifi
signal but I can not connect. Called tech support and was told system will not work until
I am overseas, so no way to confirm it is working til I am out of the country. Do not like that.
Have others experienced the same?
