    How do I tell if a Verizon jetpack is the old unlimited plan or the new unlimited plan?

      Chris & Cherie / Technomadia You would pretty much know... did you just subscribe directly with Verizon in that past 2 months? Then it's the new.  Or did you go through AOL, carry a plan since 2011 or rent/lease from a vendor? Then grandfathered.  Hide 1 Reply

        Foxy Roxie I am looking at buying a Verizon jetpack from someone.  When I asked them if it was the old plan or the new unlimited they just said it is "Unlimited".  The jetpack says "Unlimited" in the window.

      CaliforniaTravelVideos Perhaps you have mobile voice on your plan - I'm unaware of Verizon offering any sort of "unlimited" plan for Jetpack these days.  I have their 5GB plan $60 for 2 months (that goes up to $100 for 10 GB/2 months. Clearly their data-only plans are non-...  more

      Chris & Cherie / Technomadia By 'looking at buying' do you mean renting/leasing?  These are the older grandfathered plans - be sure to verify they are not subject to network management to confirm. But use EXTREME caution, a bunch of UDP resellers got terminated this week and pro...  more

    Can anyone tell me if they are using the DirectTV HD DVR Receiver? We have Direct TV at home and currently do not have any satellite tv on the coach. To me, this looks like I could stream Direct TV from my phone through the receiver to my tv. Help!, please!

        Chris & Cherie / Technomadia We won't know if it performs better until we put it in head-to-head testing. We're waiting for another booster to come in, and then will be installing about 5 different units to test head to head next month.
