    Testing BYOP SIM in a MF279 ATT Hotspot

    So far it's working but the download speed isn't going over 12mbit at the moment. Hoping it gets better at night. I just wanted to see if it would work. The SIM was never inserted into a phone. Just activated it and stuck it right into the hotspot. I then reconfigured the APN to match straight talks phone settings. It didn't work until the APN was adjusted. The phone number even worked through the unit when I plugged in a house phone.

    I guess it's because it's late and everyone is in bed.

    I've been using this device as a home phone w/ a tracfone ATT byop SIM. Initially I put the SIM in the 721 model (phone only), then in the spring purchased the MF279 and moved the SIM to it. When I test data speeds, I routinely get in the mid 40s mps download. Given that I quit the landline and lousy DSL (2.8 mps download), this is fast.
