How Mobile Hotspot Saved Our Sanity! #vzwss (Mobile Hotspot and $150 account credit Giveaway!)

If you have a WiFi device like a laptop, tablet, or other mobile device, you know it is essential to have WiFi available when you need it!  I have been using a Motorola Xyboard for the past four months, and I couldn’t imagine not being able to connect when I needed to.  Luckily for me, my Xyboard also runs on Verizon’s lighting fast 4G LTE service so I have never been without a connection.  Luckily for my husband, the Xyboard also has a mobile hotspot feature; so that means his tablet (which only has wifi) can also be connected anywhere we go!  


Why is the mobile hotspot great for our family?

We have had the experience of traveling in our vehicle on long trips with two small children.  Anyone with kids knows that after about the first 20 minutes they need something to keep them occupied or they are just going to go bonkers!  Since my tablet connects to Verizon’s 4G LTE service, my kids are able to use the tablet to play a variety of games, stream videos, and more.  And since my Xyboard also has the mobile hotspot feature, we can connect my husband’s tablet so both kids get to do what they want to do, without having to share!  

Not only is the mobile hotspot great for the kids, but it is great for us adults too!  When my husband and I were traveling out of town, the hotel we stayed at had terrible WiFi service.  We were lucky to get a connection at all, let alone be able to function once online.  Instead of suffering through a very slow connection speed, I simply switched our laptop over to using the mobile hotspot from my Xyboard and BAM– lighting fast Internet connection! 

Do you want your own mobile hotspot so you are never without a connection again!?

I have some amazing news to share with you!  Our friends at Verizon have given us a Wireless Jetpack to give away to one lucky reader!  A Wireless Jetpack from Verizon offers the ability to connect up to 10 Wi‐Fi® enabled devices at one time in 4G mode, up to 5 devices in 3G mode!  This is an amazing tool!

    My husband and I often meet with clients at local restaurants. The only reliable Wi-Fi we have found is at a truck stop. Other places advertise free Wi-Fi but it never works reliably. I'd love to have our own hot spot! Reply

    When I was taking online classes I was also traveling a lot. There were many times I needed to log into class and had to pull over at a McDonalds and pay to use their wifi. This would have saved me a lot of time and some money. Reply

    I wish I had it whenever we go out to dinner and have to wait for our food. I have a 5 year old who gets antsy and it would help because I could let him watch Netflix on my Kindle Fire. Reply

    There have been several times out on the job site when I could have used wifi on my TouchPad to access field forms for use while working. Having the JetPack would solve that issue. Reply

    I wish I had wi-fi when I take my mom for her infusion appointments, they take 2-3 hours (sometimes longer if she's seeing the doctor or has to stay longer after for some reason). I have also wished I had it when I've been out at the soccer field all day. Reply
