    I actually tinkered with the idea of purchasing this product - The Internet on the go - and after three months of debating I went ahead and bought it. No regrets here. It was EXTREMELY easy to set up and activate online -less than 5 minutes. I charged it and used it today with my iPad. At first it was really slow - I couldn't even load the page. THEN I turned the wifi off on my iPad and turned it back on. From there it worked flawlessly. I checked the public internet I was on and tested the speed against the Internet on the go. Needless to say, Internet on the go was quick and works flawlessly. I didn't want to eat up the data so after surfing a few pages and sending a few emails, I turned it off. Tonight when I came home, I decided to connect my macbook air and see how quick the pages loaded. It loaded quickly - no problems whatsoever. I checked a few internet pages, checked my data balance and downloaded some email messages (I didn't download attachments though). I think it's extremely efficient and doesn't feel like 3G at all - felt quicker than that when the pages are loading. I would imagine if you're in an area that shows a gap kind of coverage (based on the coverage map), I would think it would be slower (no different than when you're in a concrete building with no windows and your iPhone has only one or two bars - same concept. But if you're looking for a great value - no expiration of data (which is extremely important to me as I don'y like the monthly contracts for this type of service) then this little gadget is for you. It's the size of a credit card and as thin as a pencil. I'm a tech-e kind of girl and although I had minimal expectations for this little INTERNET ON THE GO, I am extremely happy and pleasantly surprised. I think you will be too.

    I purchased this using Site-To-Store (not sure why it isn't carried locally), and it arrived after only a few days. I had some trouble getting the unit to register (probably because of something I did wrong), but customer service was extremely friendly and helpful, and had me connected after about a 10 minute phone call. I've used the service with both a laptop and smartphone. I find the speeds to be adequate for most internet tasks, but obviously I would not recommend trying to view videos or download files with this service. The account management website is also very useful, as it measures usage in tenths of a megabyte (instead of rounding up) and instantly updates your remaining balance. The auto refill option is also great, giving you the best price per megabyte ($20 for 450 megabytes) and giving you peace of mind you won't be left without a connection when your balance gets low. I highly recommend this service to anyone who needs mobile internet on a sporadic basis.

    I've been looking at the Wal Mart Internet on the Go Mobile Hotspot for a few months. Last month my cable provider bill jumped up AGAIN, now to $175/month. They have to be kidding themselves!! I'm 69 and not the most computer savvy guy, but that was way over the limit!! I bought the WIFI gadget, still not knowing how long 3GB of data would last. I check my 3 email accounts and do shopping on Ebay and Amazon, so I'm on the internet for a few hours minimum each day. This is the middle of month #2, and it says I still have 1.6GB left!!!!!! I can get about THREE MONTHS out of 3GB ($35) (for what I WAS paying $69.99 PER MONTH????). I now have my 3 laptops, Kindle Fire, and my Ipad2 automatically connect to the hotspot, so it's really a breeze to get internet with any of them now. I really love the small size and I can literally carry my very own internet hotspot with me everywhere I go. Sprint has very good coverage everywhere I have taken the hotspot to in central Texas. It is truly an amazing alternative!!!

    My husband said this device would not work when he received it as a gift. I set up the service for him several months later. Now, he LIKES this device! Once set up, it is easy to use. It works well at home and at a hotel. We used it to help us navigate a new city as my husband obtained directions from our tablet connected to this device and I drove. We like that the remaining MgBs can be long term. This device may not be outstanding for downloading large files, gaming, or surfing for long periods of time but it is just right for our current needs. We did find some short-comings with this device & service: this device does not indicate how much battery life is available, this device does not indicate when the battery is fully charged, the service does not allow you to change the SSID name, the service does not indicate easily your remaining MgBs, the service does not work with the VPN services we have tried, and the service provides limited customer support. All in all, we do like this device so far!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    Read a lot of reviews before making purchase. Decided to purchase this item due to the price, $25 credit towards usage after purchase and the inexpensive plans with no contracts. Was super easy to set up and get connected. Purchased the $10 plan for the first month to determine what my usage level will be. Still in my first month so still in the testing stage. The range is decent. Says it will connect up to 33 ft away. I have not been more than 20 ft away which produced a medium-low signal. I don't see why I would have the device more than a few inches away from my laptop and tablet so range is not an issue. The connection speed is definitely NOT comparable to wireless high speed internet so you will be disappointed if that is what you are looking for. I'm happy with the product and the pay as you go (with no contract) plans. I've been wanting to get connected "on the go" for years but I was not willing to pay the ridiculous monthly rates. These plans are reasonably priced which makes it more affordable for everyone.

    • A. The one I just bought came with a $25 bonus when you installed the first $25 card. The description of the devise said it was included. Otherwise, I don't think so, you need to buy a card.

    • A. It does not come with time on it, but when you put a refill on it the first time, they give you $25 worth of refill free - which applies after the data you buy is used up.

    • A. It comes with a $25 card but is added to your account after you purchase your first prepaid card. The bonus $25 waits in your account until your next refill. All this is done online which makes it very convenient.

    • A. No. No data access comes with the device. Only a cloth cover, battery & charger, and instructions. You must buy the data access to Internet on the Go separately, and use the PIN number, (sent by email if purchased online), to load the amount of data you will then have available.
