MiFi 4510L. Advertised as "unlocked".

Page Plus sim card seller says it's active, but my phone says "no response from internet".
i actually have the 4620L but either way it should work since its a vzw device

It didn't, and PP says it's in the T&C that I can only use a phone.
So I ordered a cheap phone through Amazon not to waste the SIM, and after activating (changing IMEI and programming phone) I'll see if it works in MiFi device.

Once it's active and working in a phone it should be fine in the mifi.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

My father is looking to change our current t mobile family plan to Verizon because he's getting annoyed with the lousy service. Whats the best current option for a family plan with Verizon?
