Any recent word on whether our AT&T Mobely units will work? I did a search but couldn't find any info. Mobely SIM in a Netgear hotspot......Will it still work. The little Icon shows 4G when I'm using it. Any info to share?

The last thing I read said that the Mobley itself would no longer work. BUT, the Mobley account SIM that's already in another device MIGHT continue to work.


Guess we'll find out in a few more days!

I advise making preparations for no 3G availability for all devices.

AT&T shut down 3g voice service in Feb. T-Mobile is doing the same in July.

We'll find out if our Mobley SIM's are cut off next Tuesday, 2/22/22. My AT&T account lists my device as the Mobley, although the SIM has been in a Netgear hotspot for past couple of years. A couple of things that give me hope for the Mobley are that my account has no promo's warning me I need to upgrade. And even though the Mobley is not on the AT&T "good to go" list, neither is the currently sold Harman Spark that replaced it. The Connected Car Plan is handled by a different department from the standard cell folks, so I think that's encouraging. In any event, we'll be fairly close to an AT&T store next Tuesday if I need to make a quick plan change. The prepaid $55 100 GB plan doesn't sound too bad. Fingers crossed though...

In July 2021 I replaced my Sick Mobely with a Netgear Unite Explore 815S 4G LTE Mobile Wifi Hotspot I purchased on eBay. Took the SIM card out of Mobely and put in the Netgear. Call AT&T to have them match the SIM card to the new device. All worked VERY WELL. Some features I like better on the Mobely and some I like better on the Netgear.

Note: I could not get the AT&T Spark to work even after a number of calls to At&T


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

Unless I'm mistaken (which is always possible), isn't the Mobley 4G LTE?

Just checked my Mobely and it shows 4G LTE.
Just curious, but is your Mobely shutting down after 2 hours? Mine was, I found a way to spoof it into believing it's running down the highway and stays on as long as I need. Sometimes for a couple of days when I forget to turn it off. If anyone is interested?

Don't ever push the reset button. I made that mistake....it resets to the 2 hour limit and there's nothing you can do to get it back to unlimited..... enough said.
