$35 a month for unlimited 4G data. 3G data is NOT unlimited, you only get 2 gigs per month.

In order for you to get the Unlimited usage, you will need to find out if your on Sprint's 4 G coverage area first... Then you will need to be on the $35.00 usage plan or on the $55.00 usage plan, that includes up to 5 GB(Gigabytes) and Free* unlimited 4 G usage. The * means only if you can find and stay in the 4 G coverage areas near to your location, while using either plan, as described above, Okay...? Good.

What is the range? How close do you have to be to get a signal?

Can I use it for devices in other parts of the house or do you have to be in the same room?

This is a piece of junk. You can use the net provided the Sprint signal is strong enough to support what you are doing. Three or four people in my neighborhood also have this device. We are only 3G. When one or two of the children are on playing games or watching movies I cannot get on. Also they tend to kick me off. It's ok if you want to use it at 2/3 AM when no one else is.

It can be used in another room. 150ft or closer is the range.

As long as you are in the network, you should be good. Go to VirginMobileusa.com and look at the broadband coverage area. It might not be an idea to purchase a stick for certain travel situations, but I always check. Yes, there are places that Sprint does not cover, but you know what? THAT is where I use the McDonald's WiFi ;)

The Overdrive Pro does work with Chromebooks, keep in mind that you will need either another means of internet access for you Chromebook's first time activation or another Wi-Fi capable device that has a full featured web browser (another computer be it Mac or PC, a tablet, smartphone, even an iPod Touch) in order to activate the Overdrive Pro and then activate your Chromebook through it.
