Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

Recommended Posts

Yes only 25GB, but depending on what you are using your Plan for it can be enough. At home I have COMCAST and I just checked our usage. Aug = 27GB, Sept = 23GB, Oct = 27GB, that is with my wife who retires in two days working from home many days, NO we do not stream video and have no interest to so 25GB will work very well for us when we head south to AZ in 6 weeks if we can get this set up. Everybody has different usage levels!

I already have the socalled Unlimited plan with Verizon, it is 22 gig now, I have upgraded to the FMCA 25 Unlimited plan, so far my usage details are still saying 22 gig. The plan that I had/have when I first signed up it was two months before I started getting the throttled messages then all of a sudden, my speed dropped to 70 kbs with a message that I had exceeded my 10 gig limit and had been throttled until my next billing cycle. I called Verizon and complained that the plan called for 22 gig before being throttled, they told me that I was only allowed 10 gig per hotspot, so I cringed and held my breath fo0r 14 days at 70 kbs on the only (1) hotspot that I have, believe me at 70 kbs you would be thankful to have the old dialup back. About two months later the 10 gig per hotspot was increased to the current 15, but the 15 limit gets here before I know it. I will now await the 15 gig to see if throttling is going to be applied to the new to me FMCA plan. Fingers crossed. Also the gotcha part of getting the .01 hotspot is limited to NEW SUBSCRIBERS, because you are probably under contract for the previous one. I just things will work towards being under the FMCA plan, it is $15.00 per month less than I was paying for 22 gig socalled unlimited. With all that said, THANKS FMCA for negotiating me a better deal.

All-

Thank you again for your patience. Spoke to Verizon today. If you are having issues activating a device, or if you have successfully activated a device, please PM me. Share your mifi phone number and order number from the confirmation email you received from Verizon.

If you are having issues activating or adding to your plan, call 1-800-922-0204. Have the profile id: 4273588 handy. Also mention Family Motor Coach Association, not just FMCA. If you call and say I want the FMCA deal, the rep will have no idea what offer you are talking about.

They are also working on a dedicated email address that our members can contact if they are having issues.

Smithy, do you know if there has been any progress on that dedicated email address that we can contact with our issues?  I'm still hanging in the wind with the activated FMCA plan on a 2 year contract, but no new Jetpack 7730L.

chindog,

I am still waiting for the email from Verizon to even start the sign-up. Started the procedure Friday at 10:00 AM and no contact yet. I sounds like you are at least a little farther along with this.

The good news about the issues with the new FMCA/Verizon plan is that it has ended the discussion about the ongoing vote to allow towables!

 received this email today, it is related to this thread simply because of this statement:

Has there always been an unlimited Sprint plan available to FMCA members that I (and others) was not aware of?  A Sprint Unlimited plan (truly unlimited) would be so much better than this very limited unlimited 25GB Verizon plan with no contract that I can't see why this plan has not been heavily pushed in the past.
