  1. Welcome! We just sold our house in August and will be headed toward Florida to arrive around Jan 1. We will be workamping next summer. Rick and Dru
  2. As it turns out, the Verizon rep was wrong about being able to use two sims cards in one jet pack. Why can't they get their act together?
  3. When I bought the jetpack and went to Verizon to activate it, we changed out plan to "Do More" plan. The rep added it with 15gb data for $10 ($8.50 with our gov discount) and another sims card with 15gb for another $10. So, we have 30gb, plus each of our phones have 30gb hotspot. If I want to stream, I connect my phone straight to the TV, because the phone doesn't pull from the hotspot data. That's how we plan to do it, but granted we haven't been through a whole billing cycle yet. We'll see if the plan hold true. Rick
  4. We are officially in this class. We have the fist week under our belt, but have much to do (get rid of more stuff).
  5. I wish I could set up domicile sooner but I plan to work (in MD) until just before Christmas.
  6. I wasn't really planning on setting up the mail forwarding service until we were closer to heading toward Fl by Jan 1. I had planned on using a PO box until we for the remaining time we are spending in MD. When changing address at my CU, I was informed that Fed Regs require physical address. The only local address I can use is my son, who has the same name, and it just creates confusion - I'd rather not! I guess I'm going to be signing up for mail forwarding service sooner than I expected! Thanks for listening. Rick
  7. Very interested in this topic. We are MD residents and are committed in MD until mid Dec. I plan to work until around Dec 15 and then make the slow trek to Florida. We go to settlement on residence today.
  8. You mean in the S&B? Unlimited cable modem. Wireless phone plan - Unlimited postpaid.
  9. I think, correct me if I'm wrong, but you'd have to use your phone as a hotspot and you are limited on hotspot data.
  10. I do not currently have a data plan, but I am a current Verizon customer with two post paid phones and unlimited data. I stopped by the Verizon store and they recommend adding a line to my current plan for $20. He said I could add multiple lines for $20 each and that each one would come with 15gb of 4G data. I am still in S&B until the end of Sept and have Comcast. Looking at this year's data usage from Comcast, I have used anywhere from 59gb to 98gb. I'm sure some of that is that both phones are set to connect to wifi when in range and we do stream music and video on the phones. I may be forced to cut back my usage some. Thoughts?
  11. Can the 8800L connect to a router?
  12. After chatting with Verizon, now I'm confused again. So, the rep told me when I buy the 8800L I have to choose postpaid or prepaid plan and that it's locked where you have to leave it on one or the other for six months. I said that doesn't make sense if you pay full price and she gave some canned answer about people getting mastercards and leaving. I also asked if there is any difference between postpaid and prepaid, she said "prepaid has slower data"
  13. Thanks for all the responses. That's very helpful.
  14. As I wade in, I know I'll need internet and heavy use at least in the beginning. Where we will be spending next summer, only Verizon has service. As I look at the jetpacks they have available, mifi 8800L gets two stars, USB 730L gets three stars and Ellipsis MHS 900L gets two stars. Who has what and are you happy with it? Thanks Rick
  15. Sorry for the delay. I'm in a fifth wheel. I may just try to figure out the basic tools. Appreciate the replies!
