Further to my first review complaining about the device's slow speed, potential buyers must do more than type in their ZIP code on the Walmart.com page to see if there is "coverage" where they are. T-Mobile's web site has zoomable maps that show the quality of coverage in every place. This depends on cell towers and on terrain. And zoom in until you can identify your neighborhood on the map; the statewide maps suggest there is coverage almost everywhere. My entire ZIP code (a group of towns with maybe 20,000 people), on the 3G/4G map, is in a region below "satisfactory" labeled "2G." Conclusion: It's a wonder the device works at all where I am. (Ignore my 1-through-5 ratings above, as what I am saying is your results may vary greatly.) But the clunky software the device installs on my PC has made one irreversible change to my browser, has four new processes running around-the-clock, and has deposited a bunch of junk into my Registry that seems designed to affect a variety of popular anti-virus programs. That's intrusive. It's not bad enough to return for a refund, but am not sure I'll re-up when my Pass runs out.

Purchased the laptop stick instead of the other wireless device that cost hundreds for multiple connections. I order this item site to store, it was ready for pick up in two days. Plugged it into the computer software downloaded. I had to call Tmobile hotline to activate the prepaid voucher . I've had it for a bout 2 months now works very well. I am college student on a budget cant afford to pay for cable tv and internet bundle from companies like comcast. I use the laptop stick with my netbook only. Every once in a while the connection will go out but I just close and reopen the Firefox browser and its fine.

I tried to negotiate a better deal with AT&T for my home internet when the 1 year trial expired - no deal. So I read the reviews on this service and checked my area service map on the T-mobile website. It came via UPS in 3 days and was very easy to install do NOTHING except plug it in. I even had my old AT&T internet connected and no problems with the install at all. I purchased a one week $15.00 pass from Walmart which came promptly via e-mail to give it a try before purchasing one of the 60 day passes. You have to call the activation number, you cannot do it on the T-mobile website as the pin number from Walmart is too short. Once you activate the card you have to go back to the T-mobile site to transfer it into data usage it doesn't do it automatically. Other than that I would have been up and running in under 15 minutes. I live just north of Austin, TX and get three bars and it allows me to view short videos with no problem I have not tried downloading anything longer yet. I would definitely give this a thumbs-up as I see no difference between this and the more expensive AT&T Uverse I had.

I looked at the coverage map and my area was covered in Las Vegas. I get 4 out of 5 bars. I was using a Virgin Mobile 3G laptop stick but I saw that the TMobile data plan was a lot more generous. Virgin Mobile was 1GB for 30 days for $20, the Walmart special price. TMobile is 3.5GB or 5GB for 60 days at $35 or $50, a lot more generous. I was always worrying about my data usage when my computer would download hundreds of megabytes of data for updates from Microsoft, Adobe, Java and others. With TMobile I have more than enough data and time to cover everything that I do. Also, the price was very reasonable. I paid about $75 for my Virgin Mobile laptop stick at Walmart a couple of years ago vs $49 for the TMobile 4G. I had some trouble setting up the connection but I called the help line and was able to get everything set up. The problem was with the instructions that came with the laptop stick. The instructions said to insert the sim card into the stick by sliding open the cover and note the number on the card but the sim was already in the stick and the instructions only showed a picture of sliding open the cover and it wouldn't budge. I didn't want to force anything so I called the help line and found out there is a tiny, almost invisible slot at the end that has to be pried open to access the sim card. The person then walked me through setting up my account. I would rate the help desk as very good. My only problem, which is probably common to all wireless systems, is when the system gets overloaded, maybe by people watching videos or just too many users. Then the connection gets real slow or times out but it is not quite as bad as Virgin Mobile 3G. When it gets real bad I have to stop what I'm doing and try again later. I've learned to use my TMobile at times other than peak hours for best results. It's too bad that it is just 4G, I've heard that 4G LTE is a lot faster and hopefully less congested.

Buggy software that takes forever to connect and doesn't work even if you have an excellent signal. T-Mobile support is non-existent and nearly impossible to contact. I waited 20 minutes for online chat only to be given a support number that is always busy.

I do not understand how the prepaid internet works. Sorry. Technology illiterate. I do not have a t-mobile cell phone or plan, but it appears to me that all you have to do is buy the T-Mobile 4G Laptop Stick, and then a prepaid moile broadband pass/card, correct?

  • A. Prepaid means you pay then use it. It doesn't need a t-mobile phone, it connects to the t-mobile network all by itself. Since this doesn't work with my Android device, there is no way for me to check it. You should check with T-Mobile for the rest of your question.

  • A. In order to activate the stick U need to get on line (SOME WERE) at that time U create an account and UR stick is just like a phone in the sense that it has a CELL PHONE #. But it does not accept calls. Then U need to call the Company and load the stick with money= megabits for U to Use. As one would load minutes on a phone. Above all be PATION with the T-Mobil agent, they R pretty good and will answer any question. SO ask, ask, ask, you can even ask all U want B 4 you buy. Whenever U chose to load the stick U need 2 provide the # U were given the first time, like a cell #, & your personal Code #. I hope this helps.
