      Answer

      If you use it for a Pro Sim school assignment, not long. I did not know this and used up all my data within a few hours, wasting $35 of prepaid money.

      Answer

      This is best used for temporary needs not long term. Cost would be too much to use for a regular Internet service. Approximately $10 per gig. Check out your local providers for a permanent solution. I use it to take to my moms house with no Internet to quickly look up emails or websites, not to play video games or movies.

      Answer

      Yes, it will work on the move. Playing WOW might not work, but.. movie streaming, less heavy games... like tablet games works. You might want to get a charging cord for the card though as the battery will not last 20 hours. Have a great time on your trip.

        Answer

        Well it depends on what specials running , and if there willing to wave shipping fees. You know you have to also pay a activation fee as well so it honestly depends on the agent that's assigned to you. Hope this was helpful

          Answer

          I have an IPhone and it works fine. When I bought the Ellipses I did buy a Verizon pre-paid card, but when I activated the account I could have paid there with credit card.

          Answer

          There is no monthly fee. You buy a Verizon pre paid card and can put different amounts on it. The only catch is you have 60 days to use the data or you lose it.
