This is the third day straight that I can't connect to VirginMobileUSA's Broadband2Go (prepaid), $20 for 500MB/month using the MiFi2200 hotspot, and I've contacted customer service only to get the ever-helpful "try resetting your unit" advice, as though I'm a moron and hadn't already thought of that, done it AND PUT IT IN MY EMAIL TO THEM, but do they actually read the email? Of course not! After I answered that yes, I had reset the unit (I was polite, no capital letters or anything) they apparently have decided to ignore me.

I'm going on vacation soon and when I come back I'm going to try another carrier, maybe T-Mobile. They seem to have comparably priced prepaid wifi hotspot service. At least where I live, this VM service is undependable and slow (very often dialup speeds on the download), and I repeat, the customer service/tech support is a bad JOKE. Around 300 bucks down the drain, lesson learned.
