3G pc-cards for laptop needs to be shaken down? NetZero 4G $9.95/mo ?

some time ago, I have collected a bunch of 3G pc-cards for driver studies. You need a sim card to make them work.

Then you have to pay for monthly charges with a sim card of your own. Currently, Clear can have $45/month wifi & 3/4G, if they have a network in your residential area?

The problem with free wifi hotspot is that development is spotty in areas you live in.

A free solution for wireless is not yet available.

Can sim cards be damaged by 3G pc-cards? no. But in cellphones which has battery.

It could get dirty on contacts, if exposed for years to fumes from lithium battery charge and discharge cycles?

WiFi free hotspots are more available in the parking lots. when you go into stores, some do not have WiFi signals that you can get in the parking lot.

This is why you need 3/4G transmission. iPads are good for either. Laptops need 3/4G pc-cards for use in restaurants.

So, we have to shake down some of the older 3/4G pc-cards.

Drivers for 3G pc-cards are using lengthy codes upto 75 mB. Then you have to switch to wiFi/b drivers to get free hotspot.

In iPad, you try WiFi first, then you may have to use up your unlimited cellphone account.

So, you can also do it manually once you install the dual purpose pc-cards. I have about 20 3G pc-cards and had tried a few of them. Verizon, Nokia, etc. drivers all had to use DSSS transfer mode of WiFi/b cards to download.

NetZero just announced their $9.95/month service for 4G on the internet.

4G means they have to supply you with a 4G modem. And where their service will be available.

To predict the future of WiFi is difficult. But many mall parking lot has free wiFi.

Once inside the store or restaurant, you might lose the WiFi in the parking lot. This is because parking lot has few obstructions. WiFi travels to the maximum range.
