    I have this and I love it! Just use it for the rare times I am not at home or at work (where I have wifi). Works great with my iPhone, iPad and laptop. It’s great not to sign a contract. I just keep this in my gadget bag and I’m ready for anything!

    Having used Verizon’s MiFi for quite some time now at work, I decided to try out Virgina Mobile’s take on it for personal use. My needs are infrequent access for my iPod Touch, iPad and Alienware M11x. Set up went smoothly, and was merely a matter of following the prompts. Connecting my devices was as easy as using Verizon’s MiFi. What was both nice and differant was that it could all be done over the wireless connection. I never once had to physically connect it to a device to configure or activate it, something I’ve always had to do with Verizon in the past! Now for the single possible negative. It uses Sprint’s network. With the exception of the local mall and very few hotel rooms, I’ve always gotten a good 3G signal from Verizon. With the Virgin Mobile device it is a bit more of a challenge. Think cell phone. Do you have a signal in the back of the room, or just by the window? How well does it work when you do have a signal, I love it! No long term contract, and for the few time a month I have to use it I only have to pay $20. So, for those of you who have multiple WiFi devices that only need ocassional access and don’t want to have to get into expensive long term contracts, here is the answer you have been looking for. Of course, higher high usage amounts are available if you need them, and if you run out, just buy more, no surprises at the end of the month when you get your bill.
