So, a couple of questions. I have an AT & T cellular phone, I have moved to a house where there is no internet connection - not sure how long I will be there - maybe 6 months, maybe a year. I will be doing some business travel and would like to have internet access wherever I need to. What would I need to use this person wi-fi hot spot? What would I have to get, and how am I charged for the access after I've purchased whatever I need to purchase? I'm afraid I don't really understand how this works and what I would need. I may at times be on the internet for 4 - 8 hours on certain days, other days, only a few minutes.


In order to use this adapter, you would just need to have one of the phones that are listed as supported in the product specifications. Then you would need to have the cable used to connection to a computer through USB. This cable would connect to this personal hotspot maker. That item would connect to the internet through your phone and broadcast a wifi signal you can use to get online. You would need to make sure you have a full data plan through AT&T to make sure you don't get charged outrages rates for the data you transfer.
