Top Customer Reviews

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.

I purchased this device because it had the most favorable features of any of the hotspots I researched. So far it has worked well but on occasion it goes blank and it is necessary to remove the battery and reboot the device. I had hoped to use it on an international trip this February without having to use AT&T international roaming. There is a minor problem that I have not been able to resolve as yet. Apparently it is possible to unlock any device that you own by requesting a Device Unlock Code from the service provider. AT&T requires you to carry their service for two months before providing an unlock code. I started service in late December and will not get a code until late February. Other than that I am happy with the device and the service has been reasonable in the places where I have used it.

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.

This was the third MiFi I own. Not really anything spectacular. The device functions relatively well, provides LTE-grade internet connecitivity through AT&T's LTE network.

Device features a touch screen, for viewing device settings and status, connected devices as well as some configurations of the device. I am not sure about this in all devices (since the one I got was not new) -- when the device powers on, the display is very dim. Then when accessing the display brightness setting, it all of a sudden gets a burst of brightness using the same brightness setting. When I power cycle the device, it goes back to dim.

In my opinion, the touch screen was more or less useless. As a out-of-sight device, I do not expect to keep looking at the device or have any need to check on the device in any regular frequency. After initial settings, I expect the device to just work when it is turned on.

The huge battery was an advantage. On a single charge can last at least an entire day of use 8 hours+ with at least two client devices connected to it.

Device stability was something to be wished for.... When the device works, it works well. But frequently the device would randomly freeze without warning. When this happens power button would have no effect, screen does not turn on. The only thing that can be done is to take out the battery, reinstall the battery and turn the device back on. I had this happen a couple of times after the battery was fully charged, and I disconnected the device from the charger as instructed. The stability issues occur even on the latest version of the available firmware, albeit perhaps with less regularity

AT&T's network was ok. Network performance was erratic and rather peaky.

Overall, this is an ok device, not anything spectacular. The stability problems should caution buyers to perhaps look else where or perhaps be prepared to put up with it.
