Question to anyone who were using the Mobley for their mobile wi-fi.
ATT has now restricted access to 2 hours and it shuts off. Which is a real pain. Before last month it would stay on as long as it had power. My question "Is there another provider for a mobile Wi-Fi" ? My other half, as she states, got spoiled having it full time and now they take it away. Is there any mobile system that would provide the same ability to go with us when we can finally travel again?

I moved the SIM from my Mobley to a Netgear hotspot a couple of years ago and do not have the 2 hr time limit. I'm currently using it in a Netgear Unite Explore 815S and have been very satisfied with the performance of it. AT&T has never complained about the move and I regularly hit 100+ GB per month with it. Last year the SIM suddenly failed to register with their system per their tech support, and a local AT&T store had no problem replacing it in the 815S.

Thanks for quick response. Simple question, where did you get the Netgear 815S

I bought mine on eBay. There are newer hotspots that will also work as well or better.

Already answered my own question. Looking at them on EBAY and Amazon.

So I just move the sim card, apply power and it's up and running? Not sure if you will notice, but I am not the brightest on this tech stuff so some questions may sound off the wall. I call it the old man mind set.

You likely will need to contact ATT tech support and ask for the "PUK" unlock codes for your SIM. Along with the time limit change, AT&T locked the SIM so it couldn't be moved to another device. TS is usually pretty good about giving out the codes. They will give you one code that can be used right away and a second one for future use if needed. It's been a couple of years since I needed to use a PUK code, so maybe someone else will jump in and with a more complete answer.

Oh, and I'm 77, so even us old guys can learn new tricks if we put our minds to it... [emoticon]

Thanks Mr Dutch, I now have one on order. Between what you are saying and what I have read, sounds like it will fill the need.

I have not experienced any time limits on my Mobley. I just finished a two week trip in early December and no issues. I also have the Netgear LB1120 with the external antenna (6000450) when in fringe areas. The sim card swaps in and out of the two devices with no issues. Did not need any unlock codes or contact with ATT tech support to use.
