Hotspot router for Visible
#1
This was posted on CRVL by Tom M "07-29-2019, 05:07 AM

I have had the Visible R2 for 2 months and it has been working great. I live in a Minneapolis suburb and have had no speed issues. I will be traveling to Washington state in a few days and it will be a good test for coverage.  Even though they state that the tethered speed is limited to 5Mb/s, my tethered speed is not capped yet. As stated, you can only connect one device at a time to the hotspot. To get around this I connect to a GL-AR150 travel router which allows me to connect multiple devices. It's available on Amazon for $26.50." It cost $26.50 but has a 35% off coupon so it now costs $17.22. I have one coming & thought it might be useful to other Visible or other brand users.

I got the visible phone about a month ago. Was going to put the sim card into my Verizon jetpack. It didn't work. So I now I got a new phone that I don;t need and am not keep paying for. Thank you for posting this info.

From what I read if you sign up now while the speed cap is off & they recap it at 5 we that signed up when uncapped stay uncapped. Great deal IMHO for $25/month net, $19 phone, unlimited talk text & data & uncapped data usage even at 480p & Verizen network. They have no customer service if you're not tech savy but once it works it seems to do great. The link I posted from the "other" forum is 6 pages long & even has a good list of apps from a member here & there, well worth the read.

I use the phone as a hotspot more than as a phone and it works well.  From what I read if you put it in a Verizon jetpack you need to change the network it is pointing to to the visible network.  I figure a spare phone and decent camera that is also a fast unlimited hotspot is good.

Yes TX , I remember something being posted about needing to change settings for the jetpack to work on the sim .

But if the phone works as a hotspot.....
