Verizon Jetpack


Recommended Posts

We  have a Jetpack Mifi 8800 that  I think is wearing out after much use. The resolution on the TV is often blurry  now even  with an excellent signal. Up until a month or so ago all was fine. I bought a Verizon  new  in box identical replacement on Ebay. I'm wondering if I can simply switch  sim cards. I'm not very tech savvy. I got this unlimited plan just before they discounted it and my biggest fear is I'll screw something up and loose the plan.

This isn't analog TV; all signals are digital.  If there resolution is "blurry" it's not because the signal is too weak.  It is possible that the data rate was so slow that your TV was defaulting to a lower resolution.   Did you try using your phone as a hotspot to compare how well it performed (assuming that your phones are on the same carrier as the 8800)?

The bottom line is that it could have been a poor cellular signal at the location where you were or there could be something wrong with the device.  I would try performing a factory reset on it to see if that resolves some issues.  Usually there's a recess you can get to when the battery cover has been removed.  Hold down the reset button while restarting the hotspot.
