$15 bucks for 1 gig does not seem like a good deal at first. It is basically mostly an activation fee. It keeps the device active and you get 1 gig of data for those who only need the mobile hotspot once in a while. Sure beats what the others charge for a basic low data plan. They charge 50 bucks for 5 gigs whether or not you need 5 gigs a month or not. At least I can keep my service active and if I need more data in a month I simply buy a larger data plan card. It is not for the heavy user. Of course the larger amount of data you buy that month each gig gets cheaper. As you are not paying for the initial activation fee and buying in bulk they can charge less per gig too. For me it is a great deal as in most months I don't even use the whole amount. $15 bucks for backup internet is well worth it. It means if the power and DSL are knocked out and I have important things like business to tend to online I am not out more money by losing a sale or an order I made get screwed up by the outage. If its stormy I just switch off the DSL and hop on the hotspot and stuff gets done
Great for someone like me who is not a big Wifi hog but needs it in places I can't usually pick up Wifi. The amount of broadband is just right for someone like me.
Instructions were clear was easy to set up.
I think using the prepaid data is one of the best and easiest ways to explore online.
Great as a backup. Slow download speeds.
Three days later after I activated the plan, my device showed the message the plan was "exhausted". I called the customer service, and was told that my 1 GB was used up. How can you use up 1GB in 3 days?! No further follow up from the customer service. Very disappointed.
Straight talk does NOT make your data usage information available. It presents a very misleading appearance that it does. No meaningful response to multiple help requests.
It's compact and works great.

- I notice that Straight Talk must be calculating data usage at a high rate. I browsed a few web pages that should be only a few megabytes ends up being hundreds of megabytes. So buying 1GB data card is really not what it appears to be. I have tried other service providers and this is not always the case. Additional: I brought a 4G LTE hotspot and this 1GB data card. I could not get the 4G LTE hotspot to work with 4G LTE. The hotspot would only work under slower speeds.
it was used up in less then a hour
i love this works nivce and fast
Quick email to add to my hot spot device. I only use it for vacation traveling so I can have accessed to the internet.
This item worked well for me
It gives me what I need. I don't use the web that much. So for $15 a month I still have access when I do need it. Would be better if my local walmart carried the card.
It still hasn't worked as yet

The title says it all. I can't get service in zipcode 10281 even though their map said I could service. Waste of time and money.

The access point didn't work and I had to Return it. I was successfully able to use 25 KB, yes, KB not MB of the card. Since these cards aren't returnable, I had the pleasure of wasting $15 on it!
I ordered this online because I didn't have time to go to the store but it took at least 4 hours to receive via email. The product is great but the delivery took too long.
As others have commented, it would be nice to be able to add a new pass without voiding the current pass so I can renew when I am thinking about it and have time. Works well for my purposes other than that. Used with tablet, but would not use with a laptop that runs automatic updates. The pass would barely last a day with the updates running in the background.
I purchased this hot spot device so I could use it when I traveled to Pa last year. The I bought 4GB card to go with it because I work from my computer. The connection was horrible and I could not work. when it worked, it was so slow. I ended up losing 3gb of data because I could no use it..This year when I went, I only bought this 1 GB card...and it did not even work at all. I even called straight talk to make sure the data was on the device and they said yes it was showing and I told them where I was at and they said I should have internet. I did not...the whole thing is probably still on there and again I will lose it because I could not use it there and I am home where I do have internet..So basically, I wasted the cost of the Hot Spot device and now 5 GB of data. And I definately will tell peope not to invest in this product
