The battery won't charge.

If you want to use some universal AC-to-USB adapter, you will find that most of them do not work. if you want to try it, do lots of research before you buy.

After three hours on the phone with Verizon they admitted defeat, couldn't provision this thing and told me to return it.

The Verizon Mifi (made by Novatel) is a combination of a great, hugely convenient product and some annoying quirks.
However, first you need to set your expectations. When you use this, your PC, iPad, Smart-phone etc. are all sharing a "3G" link to the internet, which is basically a cellular line. The speed if this connection is whatever "3G" means in that particular place at that particular time - but if you expect Mega-bits per second, you will be disappointed - that usually only happens in Verizon ads.
That said, this is EXTREMELY useful for business travelers like me. When you need to get or send an email, attachments and all, or check a web-site for some information or updates - you can be sure you WILL be able to do it. Even while in motion 9and yes, it does work while in high-speed motion, if you are in a good coverage area), and even when visiting a company that does not have any arrangements to give visitors internet access.
Operation is dead simple - you turn it on, and connect your PC/iPad/Whatever to the WiFI network as usual. by default, the network requires a Password, and supports up to 5 simultaneous connections.
The battery seems to last about 2-3 hours, but in most cases, you can power it up, synchronize your email, and power it back down, with each session lasting openly a few minutes - which will allow this to give you a day's worth of service.

Now for the "annoying" part
1. When you connect it to a charging source, it turns on, even if you don't want to. to be
clear - you can't charge it without having it broadcast a WiFi network for the entire duration.
Aside from this limiting where you can charge it (e.g.

I recently purchased and sadly returned one of these devices within a couple of days. I've been researching these for the better part of a month and had very high hopes for it. Think about this... a credit card size portable wireless hot spot that you could carry in your pocket (watch out it gets hot) that you could connect your laptop, home computer, cellphone, iPAD, iPOD, etc to the internet anywhere you get a Verizon cell signal. Before I had a smartphone, i always had the need for a portable wireless signal for my laptop so I could search for restaurants, hotels, directions while i was out and about. How about not having to pay that hotel WiFi access fee anymore? It could also serve as your internet provider at home if you only occasionally used the internet. (For home use you could easily go over your 5GB max download ($60/mo) so this is more suited for on the go activities) Yes like I said some of us have smartphones that can do all the above but this device (in theory) could be used for all your WiFi devices mentioned above. I specifically got this to use with my iPhone to make and receive calls through Skype Mobile and access the internet on my phone, taking my phone bill from 150+ to ~$65 but it just didn't work as planned.

Setup:
Fairly simple, I am tech savvy but if you set up a wireless network in your home this will be no problem. Setup took about 5-10min. You access Verizon activation website, have your computer recognize it, enter some codes, reset and your ready to use.

Initial Testing (Stationary):
After activation I saw my phone was getting a signal from the device but a weak one which I attributed to being inside at work. I've received poor cell phone reception in the building before so this was not the MiFi's fault.

For the US, this is a good deal: for $40, you get 30 days of unlimited Internet usage with no contract. Speeds are around 800kbps down and about 180kbps up in my area. That's not great, but it works fine for most applications. It's the same speeds you would get on Verizon (for comparison, in many places in Europe, you get nearly 10x the speed for half the price). Configuration is done through a straightforward web interface. The default setting for the MiFi is a secure network with a key printed on the back (this can be changed through the interface). There are some limitations: battery life is nominally only 4h and Internet connectivity in moving vehicles is not all that great. I've used this with iPad, iPod Touch, netbooks, and laptops, and it has worked well with all of them.

The Novatel Wireless MiFi 2200 is a great answer to the problem of a broken USB Verizon card. It does not have any parts to bend and break. The only problem was that it did not come with the macro cable. I needed it to install the latest version of VZAccess Manager. It did not say that it came with the cable but I didn't know it needed the cable until I received it. All parts should be included.

Got this same mifi card when it first came out with verizon. Finally wore it out and went to the new Verizon 4GLTE and was very disappointed in the performance. Returned it and bought the same model, but new, mifi card through Amazon and it works great.

I purchased this product about a month ago and have nothing but good things to say about it. It should first be noted, that this product is most effective where Verizon's 3G signal is strongest. First of all, the MiFi 2200 is an amazing little product. It's battery life with two users is about 3 hours, when fully charged as stated by the company. Secondly, The Wifi signal strength is broadcasted very strongly, and works with full speed everywhere in my home. Also, even with 2 or 3 users at a time, surfing speed on the internet is really not affected and is almost just as fast as when there is only one user. The product is extremely easy to set up and use. Would definitely recommend 100% to anyone.
