It will stream ok but your Data card will shrivel up in no time within a few hours at the most. Compare it to the high cost of paying a taxi driver in NYC to go a mile or two. Expensive for what little you mileage you get.

answer 2
It will work but being limited to 3G speeds, you could experience some pixelization and buffering lags. As you know, 3G is quite a bit slower than 4G LTE. Also, streaming a lot of movies will gobble up bandwidth quickly so if you plan on streaming movies frequently, be prepared to purchase a lot of service cards.

Unfortunately, no. The Straight Talk Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot requires its own proprietary plans as follows:

1 GB for $15 to be used within 30-days

2 GB for $25 to be used within 30-days

4 GB for $40 to be used within 60-days

5 GB for $50 to be used within 60-days

7 GB for $75 to be used within 60-days

There are two methods. One is through the UMX 192.168.1.1 status page and the other is through your account page at Straight Talk.

Here is the description on how to use each method (copy-and-paste):

No, this card provides 4 GB and you have to use that 4 GB within 60-days. After 60-days, you lose any remaining data.

It's a whichever comes first situation. The card will expire when you've used 4 GB of data or when you've reached 60-days from the date of activating the card; whichever comes first.

MissMontana, the Straight Talk Mobile Hotspot will work anywhere that there is Verizon Wireless native 3G coverage. That includes all states except Alaska where there is no native Verizon coverage.

To see exactly where you'll have coverage, you can go to the Verizon street-level coverage map and put in the address or approximate location you wish to use the Hotspot. Choose the "Prepaid" button as that will show "native" voice and 3G coverage. Anywhere in the purple-shaded area is where this Hotspot should work.

Please read just what richardarr states, for he & I are usually very accurate with our answer's plus we usually agree with each other. Always look for his review and/or answer to the question(s), as he's usually right on target. So, copy & past his link which will get you to the mobile wi-fi device you'll need to apply your service card to via straighttalk.com or their toll free # Mobile Hotspot at: 1-877-430-CELL(2355) . I have found their CSR's to be knowledgeable & helpful if you need any added help from straight talk. Plus you can usually find a well versed Walmart employee in their electronic's dept's world-wide.
Straight-talk also has a live human that you can click and chat with if you simply need directions, as this often spell's the step's out and you can save your conversation history with the live operator/CSR application & either refer back to it when needed or simply print out the log of your conversation and use that as future reference if you are uncomfortable saving it to your internet device.

Donna, this service card only works to provide service to the Straight Talk Hotspot. The Hotspot in turn can then provide a wifi signal for your tablet to use.

What you have to do is to first purchase the Hotspot which is currently being sold at Walmart for $79 (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-WiFi-Mobile-HotSpot-3G/30824075

Once you purchase the Hotspot, you then purchase this service card. When you apply the service card to the Hotspot, it will then provide a wifi signal for any device you may have that uses wifi ...i.e., your tablet, smartphone, laptop, desktop, etc.

It is your own personal wifi that can travel with you and provides a wifi connection just like Starbucks or a hotel, etc. would do when you travel. Only with this Hotspot, you have your own personal wifi source.

Question

Can I use this data plan with my Internet On the Go (TruConnect) MiFi device that I bought at Walmart a year ago?

The MiFi Internet On the Go (TruConnect) uses Sprint 3g. The Straight Talk card at $10/GB is a better buy than the TruConnect at $15/GB. It would be great if one could use the Straight Talk card on the TruConnect device to save $5/GB.

Unfortunately, this card will only provide service to the Straight Talk Hotspot. The Straight Talk Hotspot uses Verizon Wireless 3G. The two devices will not be interchangeable when it comes to the service cards. Each one takes their own and can't be used by the other.

Keep in mind, however, that even though the Straight Talk cards may appear to be a better value per GB, they have a TIME EXPIRATION where the Internet On The Go cards do not and can be used until all the data is consumed.

...with the Straight Talk cards, if you do no use them before their time expires, you will lose any and all remaining data.

KB, this card ONLY provides service for the Straight Talk Mobile Hotspot. You can see it here and purchase it for $79 (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-WiFi-Mobile-HotSpot-3G/30824075

You can use the WiFi on your iPhone5 to use the data supplied by the Hotspot but you'd have to carry the Hotspot around with you.

Are you asking if you can use your European iPhone in the U.S.? If so, I'm not sure if there is an option you'd have to just provide data to your iPhone. I would think you'd have to use a provider which would offer compatible voice and data service to your iPhone ...such as using a Straight Talk SIM card on the AT&T network assuming that your phone is unlocked and can operate on the same frequency that AT&T (or T-Mobile) offers.
