Read Member F470953 GAIL RUSSELL's Review of the Tech Connect+ Sprint MIFI Plan Below:

Signed up for FMCA Tech Connect+ and taking advantage of the Sprint Unlimited Hotspot Plan

I would say I started with Hotspot Authorization at 11:30AM, it is now 8PM and my Hotspot Battery is at 32%.

I am very pleased with both the Franklin R-910 Hotspot and the Sprint unlimited data plan. Everything is working flawlessly. I am in a rural area, 30 miles from the nearest city (Buffalo, NY) and I have had enough signal strength to do everything I wanted to do on my computers & tablets and ereaders, fast & flawlessly.

I found the Hotspot intuitive to use and easy to operate. I even liked the way it felt with its rubber armour coating! After 8-1/2 hours of continuous running, the Hotspot feels cool to the touch all over. If I had to tell one Hotspot fault, it would be the display screen font type is very small, making it hard to read.

Tomorrow I will play around with more of my WiFi capable devices and let you know what I think. The unlimited data plan is just great to have! No more running to public hotspots for me like when my old data plan was getting near its limit. I am in Computer Nerd Heaven!

Dear FMCA Computer Geeks:

Where can I get the tethered hardware and/or is it the same connection as the power cable? What software do I need? Does the application need to be downloaded to the phone to address the tethered connection? Verizon originally said there was a place to download the application or software free to active tethering. Do you know where?

Finally, I realize there is a monthly charge for using my phone as tethered. Shouldn't that be covered if I already have a data Internet connection on HTC?

Thanks.

John

John:

HTC makes several phones.

There is tethering and then there is tethering. Things are changing almost daily. You are probably safest going with what Verizon wants you to do, even though there is an additional monthly charge.
 
With our old LG EnV phones, we used Broadband Access Connect. It was an additional $50/month for this feature, and we could turn on and off. We needed a special cable that came from Verizon with the VZAccess Manager software.
 
You get a data plan ($30 per month) with Verizon when you buy a smartphone. Verizon wants to charge you an additional $20 to tether when it is available. When you do that you are limited to 5GB/month.
 
We have the Motorola Droid. There is a non-supported (by Verizon) tethering solution from JuneFabrics.com called PDANet.

The price of a single license is $23.95 ($18.95 for a limited time). The cable is the same USB cable we use to connect to the computer. It is a one-time purchase for the Android version. One license covers one phone (you can reuse the license if you switch to a new Android phone). There is no limit on the computer side.
 
The new Droid X allows wireless tethering up to five devices. I'm waiting to see if that will be available with a software upgrade to my Droid.
