    Portable WIFI for Thrive???

    I am going back east to a remote area with no internet access and was just wondering if anyone knows/has used a portable WIFI for Thrive. I dont have a smart phone so tethering seems to be out. Thanks for all comments

    How long are you going to be there? Is there cellphone reception? From which provider?

    If you're only going to be there a short time, it may not be worth the cost of getting a wifi hotspot device like the one from Verizon and others. If you are going long enough, then you need to get something from a provider that services where you'll be. Verizon generally has the best coverage, but that's no guarantee.

    You can look at Verizon's coverage maps (and other companies) to see if you have coverage where you are going. - not 100 percent accurate, but will give you an idea. I am a fan of their good coverage also.
    Also, I you are going to be there a while you can make a cheap (or buy a) cell signal amplifier if the coverage is available but weak.
