Novatel 4510L 4G MiFi for Verizon Wireless Review

0. phoneArena posted on 26 Apr 2011, 08:46

Last week we reviewed the Samsung SCH-LC11, which was Verizon’s first 4G LTE HotSpot. Now some competition enters the market with the new Novatel 4510L 4G MiFi, that is actually a follow-up to the older Novatel 2200 3G MiFi from 2009...

Are you serious phone arena? This is the same device offered by Sprint that you gave 5/10.

I upgraded to this Novatel unit last night, after having returned the Samsung Hotspot last week. It performed flawlessly today.
As for the WiFi being disabled when connected to your laptop, there was a setting that could be changed in the old Novatel 3G MiFi that could change this feature to enable it in the USB mode. I'm betting this will work on this unit too.

Apparently you cannot use a USB micro DATA cable to connect to the PC and charge it you need to use a CHARGE ONLY usb micro cable such a cable can be found by searching google for USB Micro CHARGE only Cable...

One can be found here:
http://3gstore.com/product/2226_retractable_charge -only_usb_cable_for_mifi.html

This will allow the unit to charge but not sync. Therefore the wifi stays on...

just an fyi...

Curious what others are seeing when connecting iPhones and iPads to the MiFi 4510L. I'm noticing very good speeds when connecting my MiFi 4510L with my Lenovo x200 tablet (12mbps plus up and down). When i connect with iPhone 3gs, iPhone 4 and iPad 2, I only get 1mbps down and a wide range up (between .1mbps to 4mbps). My tests are in Mountain View, Santa Clara California area and have been very consistent.

THis goes out to any of the above people, First to Joe Colleti did you find out if you could enable the switch on this device??
To Kunic, with this cable you are recommending does that mean you can then still use and rec'd WiFi while charging device??
