    The first month I used this device, great! No problems. Everything worked as expected. Once I reloaded it for an additional month . . . I will refrain from using words that actually say how I feel about it. I use this device for business. I reloaded when I ran out, the website says it will work again at the end of the day. No. I need it now. Customer service was able to help. Two hours later, stops working. Says I've used up all my data. In two hours. With no media used, just financial type websites. The same exact type of thing I used the previous card for and it lasted all month. Lasted two hours. Nothing different on my end. Incredibly embarrassing in front of a client. Completely unacceptable. Currently standing in line at a competitor to find out about different options. I expect connectivity issues similar to cell phone use. This is something entirely different and completely unacceptable.

    I really like this wifi prepaid device it's good for checking email, and surfing the internet. This is very useful if your NOT in a location of FREE wifi and you need to have access to the internet, but if your looking to down load, video stream, watch movies for hours you will use up your data really fast even if you have 5 G data. The streaming alone will eat up your data and you will need to kick out another $50.00 for 5G of data or more depending on your data plan(their are three plans). This wifi device is ONLY best for checking email or browsing the internet on the go. If you need to video stream for example, go onto YOUTUBE to view video your better off locating a free Wi-Fi network this way you don't have to PAY it's FREE. Other than this it's great and convenient for on the go use.

    Super Simple Device

    We bought this after being unable to get reliable internet for Xbox. We live in a rural area, so cellular is ok but we have no broadband or dsl services. If you get this, and do not want to use AT&T’s overpriced data, here is what I did. Unpackage the device, before installing the battery remove the AT&T sim. Go to Cricket and either add a line to your plan or get an unlimited plan. You can’t go wrong. You will have to take the device inside Cricket so they can scan the IMEI number but it’s easy enough. Connecting to this hotspot is easy and straightforward.

    Insufficient Best Buy Information

    I don't have a problem with the device, it seems to work fine, other than AT&T's outrageous data costs. I DO have a problem with Best Buy's advertising of the product. They fail to mention that the unit comes with a SIM card already installed, even after listing "What's Included". Guess they forgot that part. They *SUGGEST* that you should also buy a SIM card ("Customers also purchased"). If you are considering buying this, IT COMES WITH A SIM CARD...YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY ONE. Hate it when I have to do Best Buy's job for them...one reason of many that I rarely shop them.

    Works on AT&T postpaid plans too!

    I have an AT&T postpaid family plan with 5 smartphones and two tablets. I can make hotspots with any of those, but it kills the battery so I wanted a device like this. The Best Buy associate at the store told me that this would not work on a postpaid plan and offered me a different device for $50 with 2 year contract or $200 without. I bought this instead and decided for fun to try swapping SIM cards with one of my other devices and it works! If I use it enough I'll just go get a new SIM at the AT&T store and add it to my family plan. Otherwise it is sufficient for now to just swap SIM cards with one of my tablets. This takes a micro SIM, by the way. If you have nano SIMs in your devices you would need a converter to make this work.

    I have purchased several of these over the years and all still function. I only need them a few times a year so I always get them without the contract. Buy the storage level you need; good for a month. I like the newer models because they show exactly how much data is still available. Easy to set up regular and guest accounts. Good battery time. The only problem I've had is not with the device, but with adding more data if you run out. The default is to extend your subscription a month (and not start with the new data until the current month has ended. Usually gets straightened out in a phone call (and less critical now that you can see how much data is left), but it is annoying. Other than that, great product.

    Airtime expensive

    This was one of the recommendations from a store clerk. I bought this device in hopes of using the internet in my home. I thought I could get a decent amount of GB for the months that I use the service. I bought $50 plan and received 5 GB. I hardly used the service and within a week there was nothing left of the airtime. No youtube, no heavy web surfing, just e-mails and a few other websites. I bought another $50 in the same month and it left within 3 to 4 days. Still I did not do anything and I started to monitor my usage. Nothing out of the ordinary on my end but the GB just would disappear. I bought one more $20 gophone card and I only do e-mails with it. So far it has stayed in tack. I will not be using this for much longer.

    I found this product after doing some research about mobile wifi. I thought my options were limited to a USB adaptor to connect my laptop to the internet when I was a away from wifi. Then I found out about this product. It does just what it advertises. Basically gives you wifi when you to connect a device to the internet. Good quality build and does what it advertises. I've used my frequently over the last couple weeks, but recently had one incident when the device would turn off by itself and turn on again. I don't know why. Only happened that one time. Otherwise this is a great product.
