    • A. You should be able to use any USB charger with a mini USB cable. I used my cable from my Jawbone Icon bluetooth headset to charge the MiFi 2200 and it works fine. I'm not sure the WiFi and internet will work if charging thru USB. Alternatively, you could buy a power inverter and use the AC adapter that comes with the MiFi.

    • A. I have found that a small inverter is the most economical way to go. My favorite is a 90 watt that plugs into the cigarette lighter or power outlet and it will power most any 110v charger up to a laptop in most cases. They usually cost about the same as the car adapter for most products and you only buy one for all devices so can save a bundle.

    • A. Has to be registered, activated and time purchased online before it will work. It will connect to Virgin Mobile during setup and you go from there. I found it a little tricky to set up.

    • A. It depends. If you follow the instructions, it should be a snap. Otherwise, you can call Virgin Mobile's tech support (but do so during the morning; the night people don't seem to know very much).

    • A. You need to run a setup wizard to create a Virgin Mobile account (you'll use this account to buy service), and register your device to that account. There is no service out-of-the-box. You must buy some service before you can actually use it to connect to the internet. Once you've run the setup wizard, all it takes is turning on the device, selecting it's SSID in your wireless client, entering the password that on a sticker on the back of the MiFi, and you're on the internet.

    • A. When you plug it in you will have a WiFi connection that you can access from your computer (assuming you have a WiFi adapter). This sign on is just for registration. During registration you will choose your options, fund the account. Then the unit will configure, restart and you will be in business with your own WiFi connection. You can check your usage anytime from a special website.

    • A. You're asking a question about Best Buy on Walmart's website. Ha ha. No, it doesn't work right out of the box, but I wouldn't recommend spending $10 to have someone configure the MiFi. You don't have to be tech savy, but it's not a simple process either. You need to make sure you pay attention and read all the instructions carefully and write down all your passwords and you should be able to get it set up on your own. I've seen some reviews of people complaining about the setup being complicated and frustrating, and this could happen if you don't pay attention and read and follow instructions. Just be patient and pay attention and 60 minutes or so should be all you need.

    As I read in one of the other reviews listed here: "Beware of reviews where the user has used the mifi less than a few weeks" This device/service works in spurts. You have a couple of good days in a row and than some bad days. And the bad days are a GIANT headache. I have had the device for about 2 months now and I have to reset the device no less than 10 times a day. Also it gets hot quickly and you have to charge it often, which overheats it too. I have to move from room to room just to get it to work and I live about 10 minutes from Los Angeles Intl Airport, so I am in a great area for reception. I actually had Sprint mobile broadband before switching to Virgin and had GREAT service with no problems, but decided to switch to save a buck. But I now realize its like they say, you pay for what you get and in this case you get trash!! I would not recommend this device or service even if they were offering it for free. Contacting Sprint now to switch back. SAVE YOUR MONEY...NOT WORTH IT!!

    The only thing that's worse than the functioning of this broadband wifi router is the service provided by Virgin Mobile. I am in a fairly large city, with generally good coverage by Sprint (and the other telecoms here) but the speeds of this unit are HORRIBLE. Not only in one or two places in San Diego but I've tried it in various locations and it's always the same. I have used other mobile2go devices like the MiFi 2200 (same equipment) of Verizon and it's ten times faster. With the VirginMobile 2200 I get about 100 to 200 Kbps, which is one tenth to one twentyth of their advertised speed. But the tech support from this company?? it's even worse. Out of four emails to tech support, I received an answer to only one, and it was useless. My phone call to tech support was also TOTALLY useless and after 45 minutes I gave up & asked for a supervisor, who never did appear. I think this company and its tech support personnel are WAY over their heads.

    The MiFi device works as expected. Setup was a little tedious but once it's up & running it's pretty reliable. Of course browsing speeds are 100% dependent on strength of cell signal to the device, and strength of wifi connectivity between the device and PCs/laptops/tablets. In areas where typical broadband internet services aren't available, this device is definitely the best option as long as you have good cell service where it's being used. This being a Virgin Mobile device, it either connects to Sprint or T-Mobile networks ... can't remember which. And the Virgin Mobile/Walmart Special $20/mo data plan gives twice the allowed data transfers per month than if you purchase the device elsewhere. Note: I set this up for parents in small town Tenn because broadband services aren't available, except for expensive satellite internet services. This device was a bump up from dial-up and a HUGE improvement!! It's NOT as fast as regular cable or DSL internet services, but it's way better than dial-up.

    Great product.. I bought this for my iPad and for times when I am away from my primary home-based Wi-Fi network. The price is right and Virgin Mobile's prepaid broadband plans don't break the bank. The only drawback is the fact that Virgin relies on Sprint's data network, which can be spotty in some locations compared to AT&T or Verizon. That being said, if you just need to do some light web surfing or social networking, this product will serve you in good stead.. I don't know if I would recommend it for streaming, though.

    I have read a lot of negative reviews about this product and felt obligated to share my experience. It does not have cable or dsl type speed, but for what it is it works really well. I can't get either of the above mentioned internet services and my satellite internet experience was not a positive one. I regularly get download speeds over 1.0 Mbs and upload speeds of 300 to 500kbps. Not exactly lightening fast but with low ping times compared to satellite, it meets my needs.
