The 30 day plan rates were eliminated this month (per July 19 email notice). The only plan left is the Anytime :
$10 - 500MB
$25 - 1.5GB
$45 - 3GB

answer 2
The megabytes that you buy on the MiFi under the 30-Day plan will expire in 30 days. If this is a problem for you, you can opt to receive half the megabytes, in the "Anytime, Anywhere" plan. There, the megabytes expire 365 days after the last usage. Perfect for just catching up on emails on the road without spending $9-17 per day at a hotel.

I TAKE ON-LINE COLLEGE CLASSES..IS THIS GOOD ENOUGH TO DO THAT?

answer 1
This device is Sprint network and if you have network coverage the connection will be good enough.

Like any prepaid product this is for lite usage such as website browsing and email a couple of hours per day. You will find it extremely expensive if you watch videos or play music. For example, I've compared what I do on my home WiFi to doing same with Internet on the Go and the cost of Internet on the Go would be over $300 a month compared with my cable connection which is only $30 a month.

Even if you are not streaming videos, I still would not use this for an online class. The way they charge for data usage will deplete your account very quickly and you would be spending far more than you would if you just went with a monthly service through someone else.

If your planning to watch videos as part of this, then I think this device is not for you. It is spotty for streaming and you will exceed your data limits rather quickly.

Question

Would this work for online classes at community college?

I've read that this unit is best for checking email, facebook, and shopping. But I wonder if my data would be used up too quickly doing school work?
Right now I go to the library to use the free Wi-Fi but I'm going to double up my classes next quarter and I don't want to have to depend on the library being open.

I guess you could - I don't see why not but I wonder how quickly you would burn through data. It would probably be cheaper to continue going to the library.

Some light web browsing will work, but eat up quite a bit of the data plan quickly.

If you are streaming data of ANY kind, or taking online classes forget it.

You can purchase additional data online through the internet carrier as your data expires. You can also sign up for an auto pay from a bank account for the 30 day plan. Walmart also sells the prepaid cards. After you hook your computer to the wireless signal you open your browser. Next you will be directly forwarded to the companies main page to make a user account. Pick what you want for GB's, pay, and you are set.

You buy Mb/Gb via the Internet on the Go cards sold here or you can register a credit card. Either way, you do it online with the account you set up on their website.

Your smartphone might work well for your needs. However, below are three specific reasons Customers may consider purchasing an Internet on the Go MiFi:
1. Internet on the Go offers 3 data plans where data never expires and 3 data plans with more data with a 30-day expiration.
2. Internet on the Go does not require a contract and you can buy any of the 6 different data plans to serve your data needs as they change throughout the year so you are not limited to a pre-defeined plan that expires monthly
3. MiFis allow you to connect up to 5 devices
