answer 1
It depends on your usage. If you use a lot or are on all the time then the Go Bigger might be better. But the mb's will run out after 3 0 days.
The Go Big plan never expire.

It depends if your going to use a lot of data very quickly the go bigger. But if your like me and use it every once in a while then go for go big. I did the go big 25 dollar plan (1.5gb never expiring as long as i use it once a year within the last time of use the year before) and i just now used about 200 megs and i have had it for a good two months now.

This is an individual choice that depends on your expected data usage. I personally chose the "go big" plan since my usage will be occasional and not heavy. I purchased the 4Gb card and expect it will last me multiple months.

answer 1
missymoo is correct. This device uses the Sprint NATIVE 3G network. You can actually hone in on a specific address by using the Sprint interactive coverage map but the Internet-on-the-Go website will have the same map that easier to navigate than the one on the Sprint website.

Copy-and-paste:

http://www.internet-go.com/coverage/

You can insert an address and hone in on it to see if there is coverage at that exact address.

I suppose it depends. I believe that the Internet On The Go unit functions thru Sprint's Network. So, if you go to Sprint's site, enter your zip where it checks coverage & it says service is good in your area? You should be good to go.
Basically, it's like a cell phone with Sprint as the provider. If Sprint service works on a cell phone OK? Then Internet to Go should work the same places.

You can use this most anywhere that you can recieive 3g signal. It is a bit of trial and error at first. If indoors you may have to place it near a window, but you can sit 35-40 feet away. I place it on the cars dash when we are driving. [Not the driver] The coverage maps are notoriously inaccurate but this one works where the map says it should not for me.

There is no more 30-day plan that effectively doubled your data limits. The only plans available are:
$10 - 500MB
$25 - 1.5GB
$45 - 3GB

As far as I know it DOES NOT come with any internet time, you must purchase the card seperately; However, the cards DO NOT expire every month and you can continue to use it no matter how many months go by as long as you have data left on the account, then you must purchase another card or refill online when the data runs out.

You can no longer buy refill cards for the Internet To Go device, it is phased out of the retail stores due to the cost and security issues involved with refill cards.

When you need to refill, you will be redirected to http://selfcare.internet-go.com/ to purchase and apply the plan megabytes directly on your device.

You will also be directed to the same website when you activate the device to add time to it.

Currently the costs are $10 for 500 MBs, $25 for 1500MBs, and $45 for 3000MBs on the "Anytime Anywhere" plan. Megabytes purchased on this plan will expire in 365 days from the last use or refill. Great for on-the-road mobile networking!

The MBs are doubled if you decide to change to the "30-days Anywhere" plan. That would mean $10 for 1000MBs, $25 for 3000MBs, and $45 for 6000MBs This is great if you watch movies or use gaming devices during a month-long vacation.

The unit comes with a password that you can change if you want, only people who have the password can login to it.

By default, the device will be discoverable to all, and will will use WPA (TKIP) encryption wth the password set to the serial number of the device.

Unfortunately there is no such thing as perfect, bulletproof wireless security. But, the default settings on this will work pretty well to prevent others from using your device (for snooping or connecting to the internet or anything else) without the password.

If you want, you can change the password, or change the encryption to WPA2 (if your WiFi adapters support this) by logging in as admin to the hotspot. But you don't have to.

The device comes with Wifi security that uses encryption. The snooping you describe occurs on shared public wifi. This is not that situation. With this device, someone nearby would have to know your device's encrypted password. The device is a Novatel 2200 mifi if you need info from the manufacturer.

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

This works just like a wifi hotspot. If your device can work with a wifi hotspot and you're in an area that receives 3g cell phone signals, it should work fine with this.
You simply push the power button and you have wifi. I stick mine in my shirt pocket.
