OTR mobile is not accepting new customers at this time..... Hopefully they will again in the near future.

I have a Straight Talk phone and my hotspot feature does not work.

Visible (a Verizon company) works well for me.

I have my doubts.. Ive watched many reviews.

Straight talk on ATT is superior IMO to verizon. Im LTE all the time. It would seem visible will only work LTE on certain towers.

That whole you dont go to top of list thing.

Maybe by your area too. Myrtle beach ATT is superior. Verizon has its problems from what I know..

Looks like something is up. Guess I got in at the right time [emoticon] or could be I should have waited?

my wife and son are on visible.
As others have pointed out, it only works on Verizon towers - but we've only not had a signal in northern New Mexico when we traveled from Denver to LA and back with the 5er over thanksgiving.
My son uses about 50gb a month, and never complains about his viewing being slowed or buffering.
As to whether ATT or verizon is better - it's best to have both. Some places you'll get att coverage (Straight Talk) and some places you'll get Verizon (Visible). I know in Yosemite, you get Verizon 4gLTe but not ATT in the valley. I know this because my family has ATT and Tmobile. For a time I had Sprint and my brother in law had verizon. Only verizon had coverage. it's been the inverse in other places.

Great topic!
I have Verizon. It serves us well but pricey. Checked the 55 plan BUT only avail. In FL and TX markets, a real pissa as they say here in NE.
Thinking about porting over to Straight talk. I can use our current Samsung phones correct?

What is the 55 plan? I see the Verizon Get More Unlimited for $55, but that's if you have 4 lines. 4 X $55 = $220. I may start with their Play More Unlimited for $80 for 1 line. The reason I only need 1 line is because my wife and I will be in a motorhome full time, almost always together. Later this summer, if I'm working I might get a second line.

As for Visible, I checked that out and it's great, if you only have one person. Their website says the HotSpot can only tether one device at a time. If I read Verizon right my wife and I can use up to 8 devices on their HotSpot, although we will probably only use 2 to 4.

It's unlimited data for the phone, 10GB when the hotspot feature is used.
