The "Go Big - use whenever" plan gives you megabytes that you can use whenever you want. If you don't use your megabytes, they will stay in your account as long as your account has not been cancelled or deactivated. You will only need to refill after your megabytes have been used up.

Anyone know if able to read aaa and ha passwords from this device?

Anyone heard of FreedomPop? http://www.freedompop.com/ - No monthly fee! (atleast for the first 500mb)

Check the freedompop discussion at http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1223073/

this is better than freedompop if you regularly use more than 500mb since your balance never expires. freedompop balance expires in 60 days.

For those who are interested...this device does not have roaming. Nevertheless, it's a great deal for a prepaid hot spot plan.

Nice price drop, got mine!

Hmm... it uses Sprint NEtwork. I had Virgin Mobile hotspot before and Sprint MObile Broadband coverage sucks.. not only that, when I do get connection, the speed is less than 800Kbps. I'll keep my Clear for the time being, it's still $25 / month unlimited (used about 10 Gb / month).

I thought Sprint uses clear's network for their wimax products...

Thanks for taking time to share this deal which works well for me.

OK, it costs $80
what about connection and usage costs?
Did I miss that part?

Dang bro, did you get past the 2nd sentence?

$80 for the hotspot.
$45 for 4GB of data which does not expire.

Also note: this is *NOT* 4G (wimax/clearwire), this runs on Sprint's 3G network, so you have better coverage, but speeds will be slower. I'm surprised anyone can get 800K on these things, my 3G Sprint service crawls at <100K...

PC novice, can someone please tell me if I could buy this for my niece to use w/ her Kindle Fire? If yes, is the setup intuitive?

TY!

RE:

I see now.
But how will I know how long that may last.

Can't say for certain as I've never heard of "internet-go.com", but, I'd imagine if it stopped working all of a sudden you could return it to WalMart saying they were an exclusive provider and the provider flopped to maybe get a partial credit. Honestly, I'd think since it's backed on Sprint's network, you'd really need Sprint to go under for it to be completely worthless, but I'm not that knowledgeable on MVNO stability.

I do find it interesting though they use Sprint's network when clearly WalMart is in cahoots with Tmobile (with WalMart reselling Tmo service)...

Any way to use it on cruise ships or in Mexico or Europe? The current ATT and Verizon international plans are killers.

dawizard said:   Anyone heard of FreedomPop? http://www.freedompop.com/ - No monthly fee! (atleast for the first 500mb)

Q]

Freedompop uses Clearwire "4G" Wimax so it is totally different. Beware of Clearwire's coverage maps as they totally lie. My daughter lives in Villanova, PA and Clear's map shows excellent reception even indoors. In reality, there is no coverage even outdoors! You can return the hotspot for a full refund so the only cost is postage and the chance Freedompop goes out of business before you get your refund.

DaveFarmington said:   Any way to use it on cruise ships or in Mexico or Europe? The current ATT and Verizon international plans are killers.

You can not because there is no roaming and even if there was, you would pay $3/minute for cell service. Better pay 55 cents/minute for the cruise ship WIFI.

The setup is probably pretty easy. It should work with the Kindle Fire as it provides a standard WiFi signal.

You missed the part that says you get 4G of data for $45 with no expiration date or 8GB for $45 expiring in 30 days.

chuangtzu said:   I thought Sprint uses clear's network for their wimax products...

This is 3G look at the download/upload speeds.

The company behind "Internet On The Go" is TruConnect, they have been around a long time. They sell products under their own brand and several others as well.

I did notice Wally marked the hotspot down to $89.99 (was $119.99) the other day - online now shows $79.88. Still a bit pricey for an old unit (MiFi 2200 is dated) but being able to buy 4.5GB and no expiration for $45 is a pretty decent deal.

The killer may be the Sprint network, depending on your location. Here, Sprint totally blows. Which kills the deal for me. If you have good Sprint coverage it may fit your needs.

I'm not aware of any other prepaid hotspot plan that allows you to roll over indefinitely like this, most have 30 day expiration cycles. That's the real value here. As I understand you only need to use it at least once in a year and the balance will keep rolling over.

Hopefully they'll make a similar product which can use other cellular networks, of course the data allotments would not be as generous and the prices would be higher. But I like the concept.

Is this just a Mifi 2200? I have one coming off contract on Sprint right now. Any way I can activate it with this company and use this plan, or do I have to buy their device?

Summary: if you have service in your area and you are not expecting a fast response, then I do recommend this service.

I have used this for about 3 weeks and would like to relate my experience for those who are considering this.

I cancelled my FIOS Internet service (price went up after 1 year usage) with the idea of going back to FIOS at a reduced rate. Meanwhile, I needed a barebones Internet service (mainly to check Email and scan a few web pages; no Netflix, YouTube etc..).

I did settle on "Internet on the Go Mobile Hotspot" at a WalMart store. Bought the Hotspot unit for $99.99 and a 500MB card for $25.00. Rep was very helpful (in the sense that there was no bullshit; confessed he had no experience with the unit; explained that Hotspot unit could be returned for full refund within two weeks and understandably no refund on the 500MB card).

The service was a bit slow, but enough for my purposes. I used it for two weeks and exhausted the 500MB and returned the unit for a full refund of $99.99 (in NH, so no sales tax). Even though I was very satisfied with the service, I felt $25 for 500MB was too much. Subsequently, I received an Email indicating that they had reduced the charges and also had added a lower tier monthly charge option.

So, I went back and bought it again for $99.99 and a $10 for 1GB 30day card. Have used it for a week and happy with the service (as mentioned before, a tad slow). When I registered the unit, this time, it indicated that after exhausting my 1GB, they will be adding FREE, a $25/3GB monthly plan credit. Don't know if this applies to everyone or not.

Since the unit has dropped in price, I will ask WalMart to adjust the price; if not, I will return and re-buy.

I do recommend that you try it out, to see if you can get good service at your location(s); worst case is you will be out of $10 (for the initial usage card). You will have 2 weeks to try it out.

Re: FREEDOMPOP: someone mentioned FREEDOMPOP; my experience with them has been terrible. They make it very difficult to communicate with them and have all kinds of nonsense fees for returning. So, be careful before you take the plunge.

Can you use this on a phone? Is it small enough to fit on the back of one so I can use data on this and cancel my phone data plan?

I contacted them. You cannot BYOD, they will only activate their branded device. So my Sprint Mifi 2200, for instance, is not usable with Internet On The Go.

Is there anything wrong w/ the the MiFi 2200?

I meant how long will it work for the $45.00.
How many gb can you use is an hour.

I would think the Nettalk duo wifi will work with this so a phone, yes.

Any idea how close to the hot spot you have to be?


Another guy in my office wants to split this with me. He sits about 25' away through 2 sheetrock walls.

Please add 3g to topic.

If you are ok with 3g, not a bad deal.

The 4Gb should last pretty damn long if you are facebooking, checking yelp, and surfing the internet.

It's the video streaming like Youtube, Netflix or whatever that'll burn thru it real quick.

Does not seem to work in any of the 6+ zip codes I have entered for San Antonio, Chicago, Bay area or NYC.
Have any zip codes worked on the WalMart website zip code check for service?

Please read the OP.

Approx. how long does the battery life last?
re: using Nettalk DUo (or other) to use for phone calls-
based on quick google query it seems wifi VOIP takes 0.6MB /min, so for 700min/mo calling = 420MB - not bad

could be good for a tablet.

If battery life, and of course cvg map is ok - then this could by a DIY replacement for a phone/data plan (though metrophone has competetive rates without needing to carry around a wifi hotspot)

>>I meant how long will it work for the $45.00.
>>How many gb can you use is an hour.

I used it for 5 days at about 1hr/day and my usage was about 300MB. This was for reading Email, reading various blogs, tech articles, general news etc.. (NO videos, downloading..).

If you really want to squeeze every last drop out of this, you can use Opera TURBO mode or FIREFOX with Image suppression and AD Blocking. If you Google "saving bandwidth", you will see many helpful hints.
