DP, it will work but it is not going to be optimal.

This device is limited to 3G speeds. Also, the latency will sometimes be high with 3G and therefore can contribute to lag at times.

If you're going to use a Mobile Hotspot for Xbox, it's better to spend more and get one that is 4G LTE.

Yes. What this device does is PROVIDES an internet connection. It acquires a cellular connection (as your cell phone would) to provide a wireless internet source for your other devices to connect such as a laptop, tablet, smartphone, iPad, etc., etc.

You must be inside of the Verizon Wireless 3G coverage area for this device to function properly.

deb, if I'm understanding your question correctly, no, it has nothing to do with your cell phone. It's not a booster for your cell phone signal nor does it help your cell phone to get a better connection. This device provides a wireless internet connection (WiFi) for your other devices such as a laptop, tablet, smartphone, iPad, etc.

The only relationship it may have to your cell phone is if you want to connect your smartphone to wifi in order to use the internet.

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.

I've used several hotpots when traveling and stopping at RV parks with no problems. You should enable the connection so it is password protected.

Just don't give the password out.

Check to see if your Kindle can accept WiFi. Some of the early models used their own network 3G to access the internet and could not use Wifi.

If yours can receive Wifi, then yes, you can use this Hotspot.

Yes, you can use multiple devices at one time.

I have issues with Straight Talk and do not recommend.

1. Your data plan MBs do not rollover when you add more, in other words you have to run out before you can upload a new card or you wasted data.

2. The Hotspot, if not used for a week or so, loses connectivity to the networks and you have to waste 20 minutes calling Straight talk tech support to "update" your account information. It is ridiculous.

Good luck.

carroll, sure, your wife can spend all the time she wants formatting her Facebook page but remember, you have to pay in advance for the amount of data you use. Facebook, in general, will not use a tremendous amount of data but does use some as there are photos to upload, etc. …and if she is uploading videos, even though compressed, it could use more data than photos. But generally, uploading photos and such isn’t as much of a data hog as streaming videos or transferring large files so it shouldn’t be too expensive in terms of purchasing service cards for this hotspot if only using it for Facebook activities, web surfing, e-mailing, etc.

Yes, you can use both of your computers at the same time. Up to five devices can use this at once. However, the more devices connected, the slower the speed for each device.
