You must purchase a data plan with a $10 minimum. The plan has no time limit, except you must use it at least once a year to keep your account open. 500MB cost $10.00

No you have to be in Sprints service area.

If you are not in the coverage area you will not get service. If you are wondering, this uses the Sprint network, because it has no roaming features it's an all or nothing device.

Either check on the "Internet on the go" website for coverage or go directly to Sprint and look at the data portion of the maps. The darker purple is the actual coverage. Light purple is roaming and if the device is in the light purple area, you will most likely not have coverage or a very poor signal.

Yes, Internet on the Go Mobile Hotspot (3G) allows you to connect virtually anywhere you travel.

Depending on where you travel, yes and no. Yes because the Wi-Fi signal that this gives off is perfect for a motorhome/camper. But not all major highways are even covered by Sprint, so again depending on where you travel your signal (and internet) might cut out. Be sure to check the coverage.

The short answer is yes, this is a great way to get internet as you travel.

it is possible to do so but I would say it would be faster and better if you do it alone and not have several others online at the same time that you are downloading.

this is a hot spot. you have to buy a card to add megabytes or whatever. I have this hotspot and I buy a 25 card and I use it anytime I like. you pick the plan you want and how or when to use it. I use it anytime I want. I don't like paying month to month. so I buy the card that lets me use it anytime and if I don't use all my data I can still use it next moth or next week. as long as I use it before the year is up I still have my time.

Sped, answers to your questions are easily found online, by doing research. But anyway...here's the deal. You can buy a $10 card with 500mb, a $25 with 1.5gb or $45 with 2.5gb to add as you want. (I think that's correct, or something close anyway.) Or, you can sign up for auto-refills, which are only charged to your credit card only when you run out. The one thing that makes this different than other mifi deals...is that there's no expiration of the mb's you purchase. So if you'd buy 5gb's all at once (2 X $45 cards for example), they'd be good for a full year. The only requirement is to use some of the gb's one time within one year.

the manual says 4 hours per charge. I use it as a secondary/emergency/traveling connection and never tried to go that long.

Pretty sure I've used it for at least 2 hours constant, but usually it's just a few minutes for email or a voip phone call.

was $80 for the hardware when I bought mine. After that you create an account and buy data (megabytes or gigabytes). There are a few options there. I'm lucky if I use an entire gigabyte in a year for this device, so it's pretty cheap to run for me.

With the "GO Big - use whenever" plan - there's no time limit, buy 1.5 gig for $25 and it lasts till you use it up.

research it here -

PS if your looking for a primary internet connection you would use for long hours this may not be your best choice.
they're (MiFi) making newer (larger) hardware now with bigger batteries.
I like this one because it's small - a thick creditcard size.
