    Ahhhhh...
    Internet issues all week.
    My new mifi card from Verizion worked very well. Till the battery died the first time. Now I cannot get it to take a charge.
    So I have not had internet all week.
    I did not make it home either, so I could not go and get it fixed.
    Lucky for me my wife had not canceled my sprint yet. So I redid the drivers for it so I can get online today.
    Then I can go to the verizion site and see if I can figure out the issue. Once I am done here lol.

    Chromedome are you talking about the flat black one that verizon gives you for free if you agree to the service? Thats what I use and I've never had a problem with it charging although every time I use it I have it plugged into my lap top charging

    Yes, it is the MYFI 2200.
    It was working fine with no issues at all. Then the battery died.
    I have tried charging it and it is not working. So I have to wait till I get home and go to the store and have them check it out.
    I was not due for a phone yet, and I was tired of paying sprint over 60 bucks a month. Yes, sprint was unlimited, but I doubt I will use more than 5 gigs on here anyway. Which is 50, with overages. Since I signed up for the 3 gig plan for now.
    They are offering free upgrade for the 4g when it comes out though. But will have to pay for the 5 gig a month plan to get it.

    i don't see what difference a mac has to do. it's the device that matters. not the computer.

    i could see not having drivers to load the device. but not the computer itself.

    That is what the people at the verizon store where I purchased it from told me so I just took their word for it because I know very little about computers

    Guess I can quit waiting for that cheesecake by now. Probably has gone bad now, sending it by snail mail. lol

    Gawd but I'm tired of all this snow and ice. Have been up in the north and northeast this whole time out and loads and mileage have sucked. Good thing I'm just a lowly company drvr.
