Doesn't the 4620LE provide usage info?

My Verizon contract will be coming to an end soon, and I am looking forward to getting to switching to Millenicom.

There is a lot of discussion on Mcom's once-a-week usage posting and how it may be easy to exceed the 20GB monthly limit in less than a week. Alternatives included emailing Mcom for usage, setting up an account on vzw, and pc software.

But how come no one mentions that the 4620LE can also display usage data?

The Mcom 4620LE will just say "unlimited" on the LED. Obviously that is not the case with your account. Setup a account on VZW to view your usage.

How do you do that? I still have a data plan with VZW because of our phones.

I'll be dumping vzw altogether by installing Skype on my tablet.

What are you going to use to connect to the internet?

Replacing VZW phone/data with Millenicom data-only.

I just signed up w/verizon & check my usage there. Couldn't be any easier.

I too replaced the N4620LE with the MBR95. When I tried to set up the Verizon account to check usage I got the following message:"A temporary password from Verizon Wireless has been sent to your cell phone with number ending xxxx"
I cannot figure out how to obtain the temporary password. I went through the Cradlepoint control pages and cannot find where the reply could go.
How do I complete the Verizon signon?

Thanks,

You can read text messages on the 4620LE but I have no idea how to retrieve a text sent to the 290

Could swap the SIM to a cellphone long enough to read the text, I think.. well, at least, putting it into a 4620LE would work

the problem there is the text message is sent to the phone/MDN of the device being registered ... not your alternative

Actually, if you use VZAM (Verizon Access Manager) while registering the phone number you can read the text message that Verizon sends because VZAM will display it. (That means that you will have to plug your 290 directly into the computer you are using and run VZAM on it.)

..and where is the text message accessible with the 290 using VZAM?

The message shows up under the "Text Messaging" tab in VZAM.
