- QuestionDo I have to have a phone line or any service with boost mobile in order to get the data plans for the hotspot box? (2 Answers)Answers
Yes, it is pretty much work just like a Go phone, only this unit is only provide wifi signal and can't make a phone call. This unit has SIM card that need to get activate. No, you don't have to pay for activation fee. And no contract, which means if you pay for this month, you are not obligated to pay for next month if you don't need it. And the data depends on which service plan you choose. The basic one is 1.5GB for $25, I believe.

- QuestionDo these portable wifi hotspots, for example this boost one, do they work with iPhones? If I wanted to put it in my car to have wifi instead of using all my phones data? I'm unsure of if this hotspot is compatible with iPhones. (1 Answer)Answers
Yes, so far I've had no problems with any phone I've hooked up to it. It stays charged for a while IF you let it charge up fully. But I wouldn't recommend buying less than 10 bucks for top up. Unless you don't use as much data. But on the other hand if you're short on cash you can get 1 gig of data for 5 bucks.

- QuestionNeed to know if this device is good for gamers, I play mostly Steam games and I have a rather large library and play online a lot so has any one used this thing for gaming or live streaming? (1 Answer)Answers
First, this runs off LTE so you're paying for the amount of data you use. So it all depends if you want to keep on paying for LTE usage instead of using your home/office wifi. Speedwise, it all depends on the game. It's better for simulation games like starcraft and such. Not so good with FPS games where that microsecond drop in speed will be life and death. Forget about live streaming, will use too much data and will be slow.
