2.0 out of 5 stars unsteady performance, iffy documentation January 8, 2013
By TTFK
This is an initial out-of-the-box review of this product. This particular unit was purchased in-person at an AT&T owned store.

The unit was activated in-store with the $50/mo no-contract plan. There is also a $36 activation fee which is added to your first bill. The local store offered a two year plan as well, but not the one-year version offered on the website.

Setup was completely painless. The unit came with a 75% charge on the battery. Starting it for the first time entailed only pulling out the battery protector and pressing the power button. After an initial minute of what I would assume was first-time startup processes, the unit went directly to the remote-device setup information. This was presented clearly allowing for immediate connection of a Nexus 7 tablet. WPS is also supported.

The screen has relatively bright colors. Based on performance, I would guess it is resistive-touch. Icons and text are large and easy to read. Basic access information for both connecting devices and using various secondary devices is easy to find, although trying to remember the various web addresses for the different functions could prove a bit unwieldy for some; there are contextual help popups available on some screens, however.

Initial speed test was completed using Speedtest.com's Android app in AT&T's newly-activated 4G LTE service based in Springfield, MA on a Nexus 7 approximately 5 feet from the hotspot. Speeds were 11922kbps down, 6722kbps up with 84ms ping from a server based in West Plains, MO. It may be just the light 4G load in the area so far, but performance was excellent.

This unit supports up to a 32GB micro-SD card, offering not only file sharing, but also streaming directly to either a web browser or DLNA-supported unit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unit number 4 still a dud December 16, 2013
I am on my fourth Liberate in about 18 months. All came from an AT&T store or were exchanged for a refurbished model by mail. I am even on my second SIM card.

They all worked fine for about 45 days and then the dreaded beeps started indicating it had dropped the signal. They would work for about 10 to 15 minutes before the drops started with recovery about 10 minutes later. We live in a remote location in Eastern Tennessee, but the cell tower (unfortunately) is within sight on the next mountain.

Customer service is always polite and they are willing to ship a refurbished unit out, but the hassle is not worth the time. I just got off the phone and they agreed to send out a Unite mobile hotspot to see if that works any better. I pointed out the negative reviews on Amazon, but I just got a subtle lack of caring about independent reviews. We shall see how the Unite works out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product. 4G wifi on the go. December 13, 2012
By Randy M
Using this product right now for this review. Name says AT&T cause its AT&T. Pretty clear! Price is unbelievable low. AT&T 2 year contract. Blazing 4G speed. Use it for up to total of ten connected wifi devices at one time. Use this with my new iPad mini on the go, and at home when my cable ISP goes down. Can't not believe the easy of operation, and great speed. How did I ever live without this? Previously had a iPad 3 with cell service. Problem was service was tied to only that one iPad device. Now I use the wifi only iPad mini version, plus this hotspot. The perfect solution. Wifi here, wifi there, wifi everywhere. Connect all your wifi devices and pads. This is the only way to fly!!! Seems so good I can't believe it's legal. Forget pad devices with cell service built-in only usable by that one pad device. Expand your wifi world. Cover all the bases. Hotspot your wifi. It's always nicer to share and not hog wifi service. Hotspot lets you share with ALL your wifi ready toys, anytime and anywhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most frustrating device I've ever owned December 13, 2013
By Bugzee
I would not recommend this product to anyone who wants a device that does what it is supposed to do.

The hotspot operated as expected for approximately 3 weeks, then I began to have issues making it virtually useless.

1. It would not turn on despite being charged. This required the battery to be removed as a remedy

2. When I try to use it, it intermittently beeps says "no service" making internet surfing, downloading, and using the service time
consuming, frustrating, and virtually impossible

3. The usage meter stopped working and reported 0.0 usage which was not accurate. This was remedied by resetting the device.

4. I contacted ATT tech support (which was useless) the issue was not addressed. They said "service in your area is fine" which
leaves me to believe there is a serious flaw in the device.

5. After receiving a replacement the issues immediately persisted. I took the device back to best buy and 2 ATT stores without
resolution of the issue.

6. I was told that ATT will replace it with a device of a different model but I can not get the new device until they receive the defective
one I returned and who knows when that will be

7. So after over a month of dealing with tech support and a device that is extremely frustrating I can only recommend that NO ONE
SHOULD EVER PURCHASE THIS DEVICE (or accept it if someone tries to give you one for free). It makes no sense to have a
device for using the internet that does not allow you to use the internet.

8. After reading reviews of consumers with similar issues, it amazes me that ATT knowingly continues to sell a product with such
inferior performance
