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:

I bought a laptop and then took it on a trip. I soon discovered that I could receive e-mail but could not answer it or send it. I have a Cox.net e-mail account. No matter what city I happened to be in, it was the same old story — POP server could not be found.
 
What is up with this?

Hello, BoxcarOkie.
 
This a common problem when using Wi-Fi. E-mail providers block all mail delivery from unknown sources because they don't want to be responsible for spam. When you're home and logged in to Cox's Internet service, you are a known source. When you're traveling and using Wi-Fi as your Internet source, you are unknown and Cox will not deliver the mail you send. You still receive your mail because that requires you to enter a username and password to go to your inbox. 
 
The short answer is that you need to contact Cox.net to see if there are any specific settings they support for your “Outgoing Server” (aka SMTP server) that will work. Many ISPs will deliver mail if you include the setting for “My outgoing server requires authentication” and “Use the same username and password as my incoming server.” 
 
I tried to find these settings for Cox, but could not find anything on their website. I did find some reference to the fact that Cox does not send e-mail from unknown sources … period. So, it looks like a phone call is in order for you. 
 
You can always send e-mail after logging in directly to Cox's webmail service: http://idm.east.cox.net/coxlogin/ui/webmail.
Sending e-mail from there will work because you'll need to log in to their service first.
