Default Verizon Phone Hotspot vs Mifi?

I was about to purchase one of the hotspots with unlimited 3g for $15 a month, when I saw they sell phones that do the same. They seller also claims they are stronger than the mifi 2200? I Would love to hear anyone's opinion.

both do the same thing. In theory the phones will not die as fast as a mifi and yes the phones usually have a stronger signal as well.

3g is a huge pool in comparison but like you said, it is slow.

Phone is better, just click airplane mode, turn it off, new ip. Way faster than mifi. Also u can pay for 5 bucks if u know Verizon pin. Just ask the seller to provide u with that.

Just get a flashed lg Verizon phone off of eBay. Got mines, couldn't live without it. Make sure u know the account pin tho, that way u can add 5 bucks to it. If not, it's 15 bucks if u buy the Verizon gift card, I'd rather pay 5 bucks.

Yeah it hardly works at my home either, just drove a couple miles to the nearest shopping center and it seems to be working much better now.

2200 on 3G with decent signal is plenty fast. it must be your location.
