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.

Question

What is the typical useage for a laptop on this type of card?

I am wondering on a 1GB card how much you can run a laptop on? The internet service providers offer unlimited therefore I am unaware of the typical usage, is this a product to replace a service provider? Thank you for your prompt response.

The length of time the 1 GB card will last depends on your individual internet usage.

Donna, it is virtually impossible to give you an exact amount/time 1GB will last as every user will have different habits and there really isn't a "typical" usage.

If a person is downloading a lot of large files, streaming a lot of videos or music, uploading and downloading large numbers of photos, spending hours playing online games, etc., they could go through 1GB in one day or less.

If a person just occasionally gets on the internet during the day for an hour or so just to surf the internet, do online banking, do internet shopping, doing short stints on social media, etc. ...or those activities that do not require large amounts of bandwidth, 1GB could last for a week or more.

It will all depend on what you are doing on the internet and how long you are doing those activities. If you are a retired person that's online the majority of the day sending, uploading, or downloading photos and watching YouTube videos for hours, your usage will be very different from the person who comes home from work and spends an hour a night on the internet doing online banking and checking baseball standings ...etc.

Here is a interactive tool from Verizon Wireless that may help you determine how much data various activities will use ...choose the "3G Mobile Broadband" setting as that is what the Straight Talk Hotspot is running; Verizon's 3G mobile broadband (copy-and-paste):

https://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/splash/datacalculatorPopup.jsp

Should the Straight Talk Hotspot replace your internet service provider at home? Probably not. The reason I say this is that if you do "typical" activities that most do at home and have multiple users, you will go through quite a few of these data service cards and it will become expensive.

Personal or mobile hotspots are really designed to be used by those who want their own wi-fi connection to take with them, on the go, to supply an internet connection for a laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. so they won't have to search for a public wi-fi source such as Starbucks, hotel, airport, etc. to do internet surfing, research, light social media use, transferring small files, etc. (or for those activities associated with being mobile). So using a mobile hotspot is taking your own internet wi-fi source with you while on the go.

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?

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.

blueberryhutch, I think you're misinterpreting the purpose of this card. This service card ONLY supplies service to the Straight Talk Wireless Hotspot. You first have to purchase the Hotspot that you can see here (copy-and-paste):

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

This card will NOT supply service or add data to your iPhone directly. The only manner in which you can use the data given by this card for your iPhone is to first purchase the hotspot and then connect your iPhone to the Hotspot through WiFi (wireless connection between the Hotspot and your iPhone).

In a nutshell ...NO! This card will NOT work or supply data directly to any phone --ONLY to the Straight Talk Hotspot.

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):

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.
