Just saw it.. Looks like we are "buying" it.. Not a deposit... So, we cannot return it like this hotspot device..
if so the hotspot is better.

Thanks OP, just bought one hotspot. Also added my email to the list hopefully will get 50 friends.
I read that hostspot uses micro usb to charge. So I am hoping that my regular microusb charger in car will be able to charge it. Planning to leave it in my car.

I hope those aren't your real email addresses... you're just asking for spam since this is a public site...

Yep your current microusb charger will work. I have them all over my house and they work fine to charge it. I haven't even taken the charger that came with it out of the bag.

27 days left in my plan period. Where is the *damn* hotspot? Will it arrive after period ends? I don't even have a shipping email. I emailed customer service they don't respond - very poor support.
That just means it gets reset to another 500MB sooner when you get your device so that's actually a good thing. Do you also not know of the concept of ground shipping that you selected for cheap? Are all this so hard to figure out without the help of customer service?

Some people expect too much even if its free or cheap...

If there is a hassle to get a refund of $90 when you return the device, agreed, complain or bitch if you cant wait... But, complaining within 3 days for ground shipping?

COME ON MAN !! Big Grin Big Grin

And thats a $1 I guess.. Big Grin

But, they might refund if its a delay to receive the hotspot...

The site looks cool and I am impressed... Infact planning to pay $10 to make it 1 GB and another 500 MB more with 50 friends

Sure they do. They're just a little slow.

Does anyone else also think that their business model is unviable and they will fold leaving people with expensive paperweights ?

Please bear a silly question from an old man.

Spent a lot of time , but still couldn't figure out how to invite friends. However, I managed to add my email to the spreadsheet and saw a lot of people added me. At one time, I already earned 500 mb, but when I clicked some freedom friends the others send me, sometimes my earned ( added) bonus is gradually decreasing and now I almost get nothing left. Wired. Anyone, please lighten me up ! Thanks a lot.

Poeple at fw are reporting that even when no device is connected to hotspot it was using about 10MBs per hour. Their terms and conditions allow them to collect your web browsing history and sell to third parties. Just be aware of what you get into. I will still try them out.
