    I purchased this mobile hotspot because I have an iPad with wifi only, and I wanted to be able to use it in the field. I had been reviewing different hotspot options (for months), and happened upon this mobile hotspot at Walmart. I hadn't wanted to add my iPad to my Verizon plan because I wasn't sure how often I would use it in the field. This mobile hotspot is perfect for me. Set up was simple, it connects quickly every time, and I have the option of connecting on my laptop if I need to. I started out with the $10/500 MB card, and I've been very pleasantly surprised at how little memory I use considering I am now connecting with the hotspot on pretty much a daily basis...sometimes several times a day. In the three weeks I've had it, I have used only 22 MB. I am a Realtor, and now rather than having to print out support documents for myself for each showing, I have all the information on my iPad. I can have clients sign documents in the field on the iPad, and immediately e-mail them copies. This hotspot has proved itself to be dependable, and definitely cost-effective. My only gripe is that they dropped the price about $20 after I bought it. Bad timing on my part, I guess. But since my usage is going to cost me about $1 a month, I won't complain too much. This obviously wouldn't be a good option if you want to stream movies often, etc., but for me it's great.

    When I purchases this, it was $45 for 4gig of data. They have since raised the price dramatically by now charging $45 for only 3gig of data. A cut of 25% of data is pretty big! Also, you used to get charged for what you used. They changed their accounting, and now every time that thing dings their servers, they charge you a full 1MB. So when you're email checks for email, and you don't have any (which uses very little data), you're getting dinged big time (1MB) over the actual usage. I use to go a day using 3-5 MBs (checking/getting email and iMessages and maybe looking at a webpage), and now that same typical day is costing me upwards of 20+ MB's. That's 4-7 times the amount of data I was being charged for before they made their accounting change, which I guess their contract says they can do at will. So between the refill cards giving you much less data for your money, and their "new accounting procedures", this is NOT the deal it once was. I'll be looking for other solutions with quicker speed and more coverage now that this is not the economic solution it once was.

    Great device. This saves a lot compared to the AT&T monthly plan that I never used the full data amount. The fact that the minutes don't expire lets you only pay for what you use.

    Fantastic, now I can use my smartphone anywhere I go without a minutes plan. I have cut the cord on monthly bills and use my smartphone on wi-fi exclusively (airplane mode) as if it were a mini-tablet. My phone calls go through an app I pay for separately named Skype. The MIFI works great when I'm away from my home wi-fi and the MB's don't expire. So far I'm only using about 70 MB's per month. I tell everyone I meet but they don't understand having a smartphone without a large monthly bill. They love telling me how they never use all of their minutes and data. I don't understand buyiing minutes.

    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.

    • 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.
