Default Mobley

Did anyone buy a Mobley that they either didn't need or no longer use? I accidentally damaged mine beyond repair, and they are virtually unavailable anymore. I'm currently borrowing one, which works fine on my account with my SIM card inserted, so the account is not an issue. They guy I'm borrowing from will want it back eventually.



Original cost $99. Used ones going for up to $200 on E-Bay. I would go that high but want to avoid having to buy one from an unknown party.



I figure anyone reading this that has a Mobley will have no problem understanding what I'm looking for, but for anyone else wondering what I'm talking about, a Mobley is an internet/WiFi connection that was available for awhile with a $20 per month unlimited account without having to have any other AT&T account.

Don, i have three, work great. I follow a thread that discusses the Mobely and the options. It seems to be easy to use the sim in a few other AT&T hotspot devices. I have not had a need to change so I have have not made any notes, but there is plenty of info if you what to dig through this thread.

Things may have changed, I think Greg Bryant lost a mobley in a rental car and had no trouble replacing the sim and a new moblely through AT&T.

It may make a comeback, but you do know that ZTE is not currently allowed to export anything to the US?

I wouldn't seek out a Mobley, they are low end commodity hardware. Almost any hotspot that takes a SIM card will work with the one you took out of the Mobley and will work much better (long range, real antennas, etc).

Started search for cell and WiFi boosters just yesterday
Several choices but too many reviews that were given product
Weboost the old Wilson co seems to be a favorite
High prices for what they are
Any suggestions would be appreciated

I hadn't considered putting the SIM in a hotspot. Looks like a Velocity for $60 from Best Buy would be the best bet.

OK, done. Thanks for the info. Just a little bit faster than the Mobley was (which had an external antenna), but definitely a decently priced option.

Don - have a Verizon 6620 Jetpack I got from that Huntsville AL deal a couple years ago. No clue if it’d work with AT&T SIM card or if it even takes one. Yours if you want it and the price is right

Kurt - have owned a WeBoost 4g-x for almost two years and love it. Only issue is inside Hershey bar antenna is short range. However, not an issue for my AT&T Rural Area unlimited internet box sitting on top of the antenna and T-Mobile WiFi calling on both phones.

So can I take the Verizon sim card out of my samsung s6 and use it in a hotspot?

Van, most of these devices are "locked" to a network, so unlikely that an AT&T Sim would work in a VZ device. Can't say for sure, but I would be very surprised. I had run out and got the AT&T unit already anyway.

Kip, when the others here got me reading on the topic it is clear that data-only sims on the AT&T network will work in other data-only devices. After that it gets murkier, so I have no idea what would happen if you put a voice/text/data sim in a data device.

One thing that was emphasized repeatedly was that, in the case of the Mobley Sim in a hotspot, one should remove the Sim that comes with it before even putting the battery in. I wasn't about to test whether that really was a problem or not, so my Mobley Sim was in place when it was first turned on. I actually made the SSID/password match the Mobley settings, so my devices connected immediately without any changes in setup.
