    IIRC the deal was that verizon didn't require it for tablets and IME tablets don't require the hotspot addon for hotspot usage.
    Although the only time I ever used it in a tablet was an ipad a few...

    @Jack Hagar
    The prepaid unlimited plan was always very unusual in this aspect unlike any other unlimited (in regards to data only plans) in that it was permanently deprioritized so the effect on...

    I've got an ipad from Sprint like that right now.
    There was apparently an unpaid bill on it or something and Sprint refuses to give any info or allow it to be paid so it can't be activated on...

    The only reasons i've found against wifi calling are it sometimes will cause calls to get lost at least it did for me and using wifi calling prevents call recording software from working due to the...

    Yes; I heard about it about 2-3 years ago probably from dslreports, reddit or maybe it was here? It's been a while back.

    Verizon hasn't sent out any notification to customers that i'm aware of.

    When do you figure they are going to start sending out letters?
    I'm guessing they are going to give a warning to users of CDMA voice and or data equipment in june for about 6 months of warning.

    If you're using it in a phone you're probably fine with any of the newer UDP plans.
    If you're using it in a hotspot it's pretty much the same as the prepaid unlimited hotspot except the gUDP is not...

    It's my understanding that they discontinued the $25 OFF SMARTPHONE MONTH2MONTH and the $15 of basic phones month2month as it was a "promotion" and not part of the plan itself.

    I swapped out a...

    That's the question why isn't it also free to opt out of the video throttle on tiered plans like it is on other carriers? It's not really different cost wise as far as the carrier is concerned 1GB of...

    Sure but verizon doesn't charge them an extra $10/mo to turn safety mode off they just bill them $15/GB for the data.

  15. 2 years ago today, Verizon announced it was bringing UDP back

    You wouldn’t want to tun it off on a tiered plan except for unusual circumstances which is why the other carriers allow you to opt out free on tiered if you want. Then if you use too much they charge...

    Yes, the coverage more than anything else.
    Verizon is also the fastest of the four carriers at home.

    @ROLLTIDE
    No way to remove it initially but today it can be removed by a $10/mo addon on any postpaid plan if they deem your device hd capable.
    I don't think it's available on prepaid.

    If you are lucky enough to have 60Mbps+ home upload it would likely be best to VPN to your home network.

    Yes.
    As for why that test is slower,
    Verizon throttles video on all of their plans even the tiered charge per GB plans.
    Phones get about 3.7Mbps hotspots and tablets get 10Mbps.

    Have you tried switching the modem firmware from verizon to generic or vice versa?

    Would that have been an 11x increase in costs?

    Not that I even understand how they would be able to even properly tax texting usage as most all plans have unlimited text usage nowadays.

    Any connection to the recent reclassification of text messaging by the FCC to make it even less regulated?

    You can use it with the permanently deprioritized prepaid unlimited hotspot plan for $65/mo or $45/mo if you add it to a existing prepaid line.
    Video is throttled to 720P.

    The 6620L and 7730L should both be pretty solid units at this point and are relatively cheap second hand, they also have much better band and CA support than the T1114 or smart hub.
