What Is The Best Way To Stay Connected Online?

Recommended Posts

Interesting to see you quoting a post from 2009!  Many MiFi options are available today in addition to the use of your own smartphones hot spot option.

Just wanted to let folks know that T-Mobile launched a new data plan in October that I think is a good deal.  The plan is for people 55 and older and gives you two lines of unlimited everything including using the phones for mobile hotspots for $60 per month including all fees, etc.. 

 

While T-Mobile doesn't currently have the coverage that Verizon has, I've been pleasantly surprised at how good it is.

Just tried the Verizon Jetpack now with FMCAs deal.  Tried for 2 days to set up an account after I received it.  Nobody knew what to do.  Spent 2 afternoons on the phone mostly listening to music and then a trip to my local Verizon store.  Ended up they wanted me to drive 30 miles to a corporate store to try to set up and account .  Not worth my trouble, if you sell me something have a way to use it.

Hey Jerry,

I was just looking into the Verizon/FMCA deal to see if that was something I want to try. Wandering if you went through the enrollment process that is posted on the FMCA site. I was considering using the Jetpack for both on the road and home uses. I knew there were issues when it was first rolled out, but sounds like there still are. I am an existing Verizon customer.

There must be operator error. I have had the MiFi since last May. Never ever had an issue with the device and I am as dumb as dirt when it comes to Electronics. Sorry.

Have you visited a Verizon Store and asked for help? It's free.

I got the MiFi and set it up with no problems.  However, it's been over two months now and Verizon still hasn't been able to get me on the FMCA plan.  The first few attempts to have it fixed resulted in me spending literally hours on the phone.  I'm so tired of calling Verizon every month to have my bill manually adjusted that I'm probably not going to renew the service or my FMCA membership when they come due.

PM me your email address and I’ll have someone from Verizon reach out and get it corrected. Sorry for all the issues you are having.
