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.

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.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding everything you are saying, wally, but it sounds as if you just want to get online occasionally with your ipod on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Yes, this will accommodate that. However, you will have to purchase the actual hotspot unit for $79 that requires a service card like this one to work.

So first, go to this URL and purchase the hotspot (copy-and-paste):

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

Then you can purchase this service card which allows the hotspot to send out a wifi signal. Your iPod then can connect to that wifi signal.

You have to be within a good Verizon Wireless coverage area for the hotspot and accompanying plan to work.

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.

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):

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.
