This is a hot spot designed for use on the go and coverage depends entirely on whether or not you are traveling within the coverage area.

As long as the area you are driving in is covered by Verizon Wireless, you should be good. For video streaming, yes, should work good, just note that an hour of Netflix is about 0.4GB of data.

Lou, you can use this while traveling down the road but it is not optimal for streaming as it is only a 3G connection which is not ideal for streaming video. You'd do better with a 4G LTE hotspot as ones such as Verizon offers directly to the public.

Why do i have to buy a card?

Sorry not to be helpful. Can you clarify your question? What "card" are you referring to?

Again, just like a cell phone, this device will need to have service purchased in order to function as intended. This Hotspot will not work without first purchasing service and one way to do that is to buy a "card" that provides a specific amount of data to use.

Just like your cell phone, it is useless and essentially becomes a brick without buying service in some form or another ...maybe not like a brick but it will not have full functionality.

...a service card? You may as well use it as a hockey puck if you do not buy a card. The service card is what is needed for it to function as intended just as you'd need to purchase service for a cell phone ...without service, the device itself does not provide useful function.

Unfortunately, no. Here are the length of time the cards are good for:

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

It will be a "whichever comes first" situation.

Your desktop needs the ability to wirelessly connect to the internet using wifi. You may have one built in but if not, you can either install a PCI adapter or, the simplest way is to use a USB wifi adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports.

Here's an example of a USB adapter ($25.44) but there are others that have the antenna built in too at a variety of prices (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Premiertek-PowerLink-Wireless-802.11b-g-n-USB-2.0-Adapter/16480821?

Again, your PC may already have an adapter installed in a PCI slot if it is a newer desktop model.

No, this will be just like your cell phone as it will acquire the cellular signal in the same manner your cell phone would. It's totally independent of any other service. It is its own cellular device and will have its own MDN (phone number).

NO phone line needed. Just buy device and a service card. Take home call # on activation card,charge device,connect to a pc to finish set up. Unplug from pc and start using it.
