Thank you for your feedback. I am sending you a private message to address your concerns. Please respond to the message. I do care about your concerns. However, I would need to review the specifics on your account to assist further. Also, depending on the circumstances, a 24 to 48 hour time frame maybe needed as a around time for working on a issue and making a callback.
I would love to hear the outcome of this story. Please post a follow-up, Lousy!
I am in the same boat. I use to have the Mifi 3G from Novatel and upgraded to the Samsung 4G. If I'm using it at work on 4G only I have no issues but when I am at home in a 3G area only the connection will constantly disconnect every 3-5 minutes which is extremely annoying when trying to do anything.
I have 2 of the Samsung 4G devices and its the same problem on both. I have called Tech Support several times and have yet to get a real answer as to why its occuring. The only thing that Tech Support has told me is in a 3G area only the 4G device will constantly look for a 4G signal even when connected to 3G. Essentially they are telling me this is the reason for the disconnects and they know they are having issues with it. They also admit that this should work seamlessly and not interupt the 3G connection.
Just frustrating when you spend nearly $400 a month with VZW only to have 2 of your devices not work more then 5 minutes. I am tired of resetting to factory defaults, rebooting PC's. rebooting the device, going through the configuration page and calling tech support. I just want my devices to work as they should based on the amount of money I'm paying. Extremely frustrated and at the point I am ready to switch.
I now wish I had kept my original 3G mifi's . They were flawless for nearly 3 years.
I do understand how frustrating it would be to upgrade to a, supposedly, faster type of data device and not be able to get the expected use out of it.
I would be happy to assist you and ensure we resolve this issue for you! I would need to ask you a few questions to determine what is causing the device to constantly disconnect.
When you are using this device at home and experiencing these disconnects, what operating system is running on your computer? There may be a setting in your Network and Security settings that we may need to change in order for the wireless hotspot to maintain a steady connection. Private message me that information so I can further troubleshoot for you.
