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.

It works on native Sprint coverage and according to their map, it does work in 95658. I suggest that you check the Virgin Mobile coverage map. That will tell you where there is native Sprint coverage.

MAKE SURE YOU BUY ONLY WALMART INTERNET ON THE GO REFILL CARDS!!!
NO OTHER WALMART OR TRUCONNECT CELL PLAN REFILL WILL WORK FOR THIS DEVICE.

It depends on the system plan you are using. The pricing and times may fluctuate, but will be shown when you access your device's account purchase options. Here, you can find the current prices for the Internet On the Go plans: http://support.internet-go.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/24/5/what-are-the-refill-options

Choose a plan that fits how often do you use this device, and what you are accessing through the device.

If you're not using it very often, just to check on emails, and use the GPS apps on an iPad, or you're just using it for Square/GoPayment/SailPay transactions, the Go Big plan would be the one you want. All you're doing is topping up bandwidth allowance once a year or whenever you run out of bandwidth. This plan is better than Netzero Wireless, eh?

If you are downloading albums of photos, watching movies, or participating in Livestream, then you'll want Go Bigger. This plan gives more data, but the unused access expires in a fixed number of days depending on the plan you purchase, specified at time of purchase.

MAKE SURE YOU BUY ONLY WALMART INTERNET ON THE GO REFILL CARDS!!!

The system uses Sprint Cell phone as a carrier. It works anywhere there is Sprint Cell phone coverage. It has nothing to do with WiFi coverage.

After you use up your 4GB then the 3GB bonus kicks in and anything unused will expire after 30 days and you have to add another refill.

I just bought this. The bonus $25 kicks in after the first time you pay for data. You might try buying the smallest package or middle one first, then the bonus will kick in. Then add on after the bonus.

answer 3
You will still get the $25 bonus offer when your current (purchased) data is all consumed. The BALANCE OF DATA never expires in your current plan but, with continued use, your balance of data will run out eventually and then your $25 bonus offer (30-day expiration) will kick-in.

Driver,

Truconnect requires Sprint DATA coverage and so I'm leary of relying on it.

What I would say is, call truck stops in the areas you think you're stopping in and see what coverage they have, or call McDonalds, or call Starbucks, etc etc etc.

Bottom line is, no carrier that can cover 100% of a truck driver's destinations, especially north and west of Colorado.

No, you must turn the wifi on. It connects over wifi.

If you are connected to a different wifi access point you may have to manually disconnect from the one access point and choose to connect to the mifi broadcasting wifi hotspot. Some devices allow you to set a preferred network that will be chosen when it's available over other defined wifi networks.

Do NOT turn off your wifi. You want to use your Internet on the Go as your wifi SOURCE. So turn it on, look for internet connections, and the name of your device should show up, then click on it an enter the password (unless you changed it when setting up, the "name" of your device and the password is on the device). Good luck! I love my Internet on the Go Mobile Hotspot.
