My wife and I will be traveling to Scandinavia for a trip shortly (Denmark, Sweden, Norway) – what's the best option for us to have internet access considering our phones are locked to ATT? [more inside]
I am plotting a trip to a part of the US with poor internet and bad cell coverage. One location where I will be staying shows as within AT&T's 4G LTE data service area. A recent trip to SF demonstrated some limitations of my current cell data plan, which is Straight Talk month-to-month (sublease on AT&T network, shows signs of being stepped on by AT&T in terms of speed and responsiveness for data). Straight Talk excludes tethering altogether and has a non-4G data puck available. Given my negative experience with ST data in SF, I am looking askance at the ST puck. [more inside]
Upcoming trip to the US; smartphone and pre-existing 2G US number. Does it make sense to get a pre-paid Mi-Fi router? [more inside]
In-laws? Old roommates? craigslist? I'm trying to save some money here! Plus bonus snowflake question about tethering/MiFi options! [more inside]
Short-term MiFi strategy. Will this work? [more inside]
When do device capabilities determine 3G possibilities? I have two 3G devices, one is consistently nearly 2.5x faster than the other. Is this normal, or is something wrong? [more inside]
Best Pay-As-You-Go 3G data option for a Canadian visiting Hawaii? [more inside]
Work will be buying me a portable hotspot device. I don't know much about them except that I'd rather not install any client software. So...hivemind...what is my best portable wifi option?
Experience with Sprint / Nextel MiFi? [more inside]
About six months ago, I saw a cool device. You could plug your AT&T USB 3G "laptop connect" into it, and it would generate a local wi-fi hotspot (similar to the Verizon MiFi). I've since purchased the AT&T card, but I can't find the device anywhere. Was I imagining things? Does such a device exist? It'd be very, very useful. Thanks!
Is it possible use an Apple Airport Extreme base station or Time Capsule to extend a Verizon MiFi's wireless network? [more inside]
