I bought this to use with my new laptop as I wanted to be able to have internet at our cabin where we go on the weekends and there is no internet available. I had a terrible time trying to get it activated (at home which in an rural area) and customer service thought the device was defective and thought that I should return it. I decided to play around and had my husband drive me to the top of a hill near a cell tower. Wow, all of a sudden I got it to activate. Seems like we are in a 3G area with very poor Sprint/Virgin Mobile reception although on the coverage map it showed the coverage to be very good. Anyway, off we went to our cabin and I have wonderful 4G reception and all is well... So, the only thing I wished I would have known is to be in a strong reception area to activate this device. When you have a strong signal all is well and the device works Great!!!! I would have given Five Stars if I wouldn't have had to go through sooo much to get it activated.

I switched from the 3G Ovation MC760 USB dongle to the 4G LTE Netgear Mingle. I reside on the fringe of 4G (and 3G) area service. My 3G MC760 regularly dropped down to 2G or completely disconnected from the network. With the Mingle I've had a consistent "single bar" on the Mingle's LCD display and a reliable 4G connection. Not once has the 4G connection dropped down to 3G or disconnected from the network. Even though the Mingle has two ports to connect external antennas, I've had no need to use them. The Mingle works on battery power and when charging. On average, I've had to charge the Mingle once per day depending on Wi-Fi use. USB tethering with my laptop also works well. So far I've used my Mingle with a Windows laptop, Android Tablet, and an Android phone. I'm very pleased with the Mingle.

Defective

I bought this device because we were having issues with our home internet connection. I thought it would be good to use as a backup and to use on vacation, etc.... Big mistake! I plugged it in to the wall to charge and all I got was the Virgin Mobile logo screen. I waited for about an hour and checked but again there was only the Virgin Mobile logo screen. There was no battery indicator, connection status or anything else showing. I figured the thing was defective so I returned to the store to exchange it. To my dismay, the second unit behaved the same way as the first. I called Virgin Mobile and after numerous reboots and popping the battery in and out multiple times there was no resolution. I called one last time and the tech said that it seemed as if both devices were defective. I should have realized something was up because Virgin Mobile doesn't offer the Mingle on their site anymore. I will be going back to the store to get my refund.

A piece of junk

I had the smaller Virgin Mobile hotspot for three years and it worked very well before finally burning up and dying. I switched to this one to be able to connect multiple devices. Forget it, you can't even get one device working for more than three minutes. It is constantly turning itself on and off, constantly disconnecting and reconnecting, although every time it says the signal strength is strong or very strong....so it can't be due to lack of a signal, especially when the other device worked fine. If you want to go on the internet you have to turn it on about ten minutes before and let it turn itself on and off a dozen or fifteen times before you can finally connect, but probably for only about ten minutes, then you will have no connection, but it will show one again, then Windows tells you you have to reset it, so you turn it off, turn it on, wait ten more minutes for it to do its thing. This is a piece of junk. And of course, Virgin Mobile doesn't sell any kind of antenna which might improve or stabilize this problem. I wondered why they also do not offer a plan with more GB, so you could use multiple devices, as if you really had ten devices that used 6 GB a month, you would have to pay $550 a month to connect them using this device....now I know why, it isn't possible to get ten devices working on this thing, by the time you would get all ten turned on, this would disconnect. This thing will have you reading the Fios and Comcast ads and calling the cable company to see what they offer. I can not recommend this. Oh, it also doesn't hold a charge for very long, at most a couple of hours....you really almost have to leave it plugged in....and, guess what?...they made the cord so short, it doesn't reach from a plug on the floor to average table top level!! Buyer beware!!
