It is possible to get a good signal to a congested tower for terrible results. I have all four carriers, it happens to the best of them. (yes even Verizon)

I am at -108 (one to two bars on the Mobley) right now and working fine. This past month I actually went to 26 gig and didn't hear a thing from AT&T except that I owe them $22.01 for the service [emoticon].

We used about 70GB last month and the bill was the same as yours. I'm currently using the Mobley SIM in a Netgear Unite hotspot, so my signal readings and speeds are not directly comparable to the Mobley...


I am a new ZTE Mobley user. As yet I am unable to log in to check my Wifi useage. Any pointers would be appreciated.

When I log in at AT&T my bill is in the box on the right and my usage is in the box on the left.

I went with the 2 yr. option. Anyone have any insight or inside info. as to whether this truly unlimited plan will continue to be available for a while? Say 5-6+ yrs? Or is it a one-time thing?

It's been a huge boon to our lifestyle. My wife is now able to work from the road on Thurs's. and Fri's. Rather than waiting til she gets home on Fri., we can now be ready to head out Wed. night. Basically giving us 4 day weekends. Sure hope ATT keeps this plan around for a good long while.

You got a Mobley device with a 2-yr contract ON THE $20 PER MONTH plan?

If so, was this before or after Sept of 2017?

I managed to get a second Mobley on the $20 plan, although it was a long process.

This summer, I called and asked if it was possible. I called two or three times, maybe once a month. Eventually I got a rep who said yes :-).

But of course it turned out that I didn't really end up with the $20 unlimited plan on the second Mobley.

However, since the rep had said that I could have it, subsequent reps put me on a request waiting list.

In the meanwhile, I called in every month, and they credited me for the overages. They said there was only one rep in all of AT&T processing the waiting list, so it took a while.

But after 6 months, I now have the unlimited plan on both Mobleys!

So it seems they are still offering this plan, in a very limited way, and one that depends a lot on luck. I'm offering this story in case it helps somebody.

Before. June 10th, I believe. We have two mobleys on the $20 "connected car" plan, both two yr. contract.

Yeah, I know. Almost impossible for the end user to know. Someone knows though. Someone always knows. My wife worked for VZW for 17 yrs. she knew about things years prior that she was under contract not to disclose until a given time. Im certain ATT has similar policies. They'll likely send out an email or letter stating that they will soon alter the TOS, thus converting the plan over to a limited plan.

I got my mobley just cause they were such a great deal, then I used it for my data on my verizon phone, then I used it for wifi in my toyhauler but then I added some verizon phones with unlimited data so it sat for a while. I just moved into a new office for my business and all they had was att fiber for 100 bucks a month at 50 mbps, I thought hmmmm so I bought a netgear LTE modem which has an ethernet port put my sim card into it hooked up 3 office computers and my OOMA office phone system to it and a wifi router, I get 5 bars in my office and the speed is usually between 28-47 mbps upload and 12-20 mbps download so far in two months it has worked flawlessly. I can even stream video on all three computers computers at once all for 22 bucks a month, why didn't I think of this before?
