Yes, exactly. Currently, there is only one product that it will work with and that is the UMX U240C.

Hopefully in the future, Straight Talk will offer more hotspot devices.

These cards provide service for the Straight Talk Hotspot which uses the Verizon network.

You first must purchase the hotspot (currently there is only one model available) for $79 (copy-and-paste):

Unfortunately, you will lose any unused data left if not used within 30-days. It's a "whichever comes first" situation.

...service ends at 30-days or 1 GB of data used, whichever comes first.

Dave, it does not connect to straight talk phone, this card is for a the wifi mobile hotspot. I bought it to use in an area where I did hot have wifi, tried it and worked well for my laptop and table, no blazing speed but was able to watch a netflix video, not sure how much data that used. would be nice if it was easy to find that out. if you get the mobile hotspot and your phone can connect to wifi you can connect it to the hotspot device.

Dave, this service card will not work nor is not intended to be used with cell phones. It can only be used with Straight Talk hotspots. Currently, there is only one hotspot that Straight Talk sells. It is this one (copy-and-paste):

My apologies for not being helpful but everything that was stated in my previous post is correct.

To surf the internet with your iPad, you will have to connect via Wifi.

The Straight Talk Hotspot will provide the Wifi connection.

This card provides service for the Straight Talk Hotspot. This card ONLY provides service to the Straight Talk Hotspot ...nothing else.

You first have to purchase the Straight Talk Hotspot for $79. You then have to purchase one of these cards to provide service to that hotspot which in turn will provide a Wifi connection for your iPad.

Tonya, this card only supplies service to Straight Talk Hotspots (currently, there is only one available). Therefore, you first have to purchase the hotspot. The hotspot will then provide wifi for your tablet to use.

The hotspot provides wifi for any device that can accept wifi. So not only your tablet can use it but your smartphone or laptop, etc. It's purpose is to enable you to have your own wifi to take with you so you don't have to hunt for public wifi such as Starbucks, hotel, airport, etc.

To purchase the Straight Talk hotspot here at Walmart for $79, go to this link (copy-and-paste):

Question

Please clarify about data, and plans for me.

If i only have an unlimited straighttalk talk & text--no WEB, can I buy the broadband 1GB "Hotspot" and still use it to check email on the phone? Is this monthly? Do these data purchases rollover from month to month? Also, if I cannot get email via this purchase on the phone, could I still buy this "hotspot" card and use a netbook to get data? Either one would be sufficient. I do not need to check email all the time--only rarely.

This uses a wireless connection so you could link your phone to it via WiFi (or possibly bluetooth) and be able to use the internet on your phone. There are no monthly fees or contracts involved.

fiery1, I'm not exactly sure if I'm understanding what you are asking or not.

First, this card only supplies service to the Straight Talk WiFi Mobile Hotspot which you first have to purchase for $79 (copy-and-paste):

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

Once you have applied this card to the hotspot, the hotspot will supply a wi-fi source that you can use to wirelessly connect to the internet from your smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc.

If you have your smartphone connected to the hotspot (wirelessly), yes, you can check your email but remember, you will have to carry around the hotspot with your smartphone which could get cumbersome.

Secondly, I'm not sure why you are mentioning a Straight Talk cell phone plan that has unlimited talk and text but NO data (web) as no such plan exists. Both Straight Talk Unlimited Plans will have data/web included (with a 2.5 GB soft-cap). Those plans will be monthly or every 30-days in duration with not rollover.

Hotspot Plans like this one are also monthly or good for 30-days (the the 4, 5, and 7 GB cards being good for 60-days) or whenever the data is used up whichever comes first with no rollover if data remains after 30-days (or 60-days on the larger cards).

The Straight Talk WiFi Mobile HotSpot is primarily intended for those on the go (so that they can carry the hotspot with them) in order to supply an internet connection (wi-fi) for light usage so that they can have their own personal wi-fi source for their laptop, tablet, iPad, etc. rather than having to hunt for a public wi-fi source such as Starbucks, library, hotel, airport, etc.

Am I making sense or am I misinterpreting what you are asking?
