convert 3g to 4g mifi without losing unlimited Verizon data?

I have had Verizon 3g (USB760) for years. We're heavy users (10G/mo.) Previously I've been told I can't convert to 4G without giving up my unlimited data. Today I talked to a Verizon tech support and they said "...I can convert from 3G to 4G mifi if I purchase my own mifi device and I can keep my unlimited data." Is this true? I'll leave the dark ages tomorrow if it is. I expect this has been covered previously but my searches have not turned up anything.

RE: Has anyone else lost access to .WMA files?

All of the solutions I have found, including Microsoft suggestions, don't work because the message I get is "you do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings". Or "you need permission to preform this action." And I can't change the permissions.

Has anyone else lost access to .WMA files?

For several months I have wondered what has happened to some of my music. I assume that one of the Windows 7 updates have done something to my WMA files. This may have happened many months ago. The message I get when I try to play a .wma file is: "Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct." Many of the .wma files are tunes I previously copied from CD that I have since given away. (dont have room to store CD's.) For years I have been able to play these .wma's. No more. My MP3's play fine. I have found programs to convert .wma files to .mp3 but they all require my transferring the .wma file to another program that I could download but I get a message that I am not authorized to access this file. I have inquired on google to help me fix this problem but so far I have come up empty handed. If you have any ideas please indicate what I might try.

RE: Standard vs Hi Def?

I have a SD automatic, roof mounted DirecTV antenna. I am totally satisfied with it. To upgrade to a HD automatic antenna was $2000 when I last checked, 2 years ago. What do I get for that amount of money? A better picture on a bunch of channels and half the amount of storage space on my DVR. Because these days I get the local channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, etc) on my conventional antenna and these channels are often in HD, I am happy. Even it the local channels wern't in HD I'd be happy. Because you have a SD automatic antenna only you can decide if it is worth $2k to upgrade to HD. I continue to enjoy the extra $2k in my pocket. Eric, currently outside Ft. Wayne, IN

RE: Honda CRV

I towed a 1999 CRV for ten years. Great tow except they had a weak transmission requiring me to have it rebuilt twice in 260k miles. I just bought a 2014 after I learned that the 2015 on will not be towable. To avoid pulling the fuse I purchased the following items and installed a switch in the blank position between the TPS monitoring button and the vechicle stablity button on the left side of the steering wheel: 1. An "add a fuse/circuit" from Autozone. 2. A pack of 7.5 amp fuses to fit the add a fuse. 3. A "31302 Valmar" illuminated (not used) 2 position rocker switch (Exact fit in the blank switch space. (Ebay) These parts cost less than $20. If your slightly handy you can figure out what to do with these parts. If your not, just purchase the Roadmaster switch for this application. $$

RE: Best toad braking system

I have used a M&G system for nine years. It has been trouble free. I can't imagine any easier operational hook up. Just connect an air line and a break away cable. Other people have had good luck with other systems. I would not consider putting anything on the floor in front of the drivers seat of my car. I intend to install a M&G on the Honda CRV that I just purchased.

RE: AGM Battery Suggestions - Good, Better, Best?

Last summer I replaced my six Lifeline 4D batteries after 8 years. I might have got another year out of them but I chose not to wait for the batteries to utterly fail before I replaced them. In those eight years I never found the battery terminals fouled. An added bonus was that there was absolutely no deterioration (rust) in my battery compartment. It's been a trouble free eight years. What did I replace them with? Another six Lifeline 4D. This summer I will check a few of the terminals for any sign of deterioration. I don't expect to find any problems. The following year I will check the terminals on the batteries I don't check this year. Eric, currently outside of Fort Wayne

RE: A Dinghy Towing Newbie

Be aware that it will cost you $1000 to $2000 to set the car up for towing. Consider buying a used car with the baseplate/braking system/wiring installed. By buying used equipment and installing it yourself you might get the cost down a few hundred dollars.

RE: Towing Equipment installation St Petersburg or Tampa area

I am setting up a 2014 for towing as I write this: The quote from Camping World was MUCH less than local RV shops. CW did an excellent job. I am not a Camping World fan but you should give them a call anyway. Good luck and happy trails, Eric, currently in Las Vegas

RE: CRV 2WD or AWD does it matter?

I just bought a 2014 2WD CRV. I had a 99 CRV with 4WD for over 9 years. I never really needed the AWD capability. It only slipped into 4WD accidentally when passing through gravel a few times. A couple of things to add to the discussion that hasn't been mentioned: The AWD is about $1300 more and it gets 1 MPG less. If you keep the car for 200k miles you will use use ABOUT 200-250 gallons more fuel. On the plus side you will get better resale on an AWD. After 200k miles the difference in resale will likely be negligible. Good luck and happy trails,

RE: Toad Brake System (your opinion)

I have 9.5 years using the M&G system with a break away device. I've never had any problems what-so-ever. As mentioned above; the M&G is virtually invisible and requires only a hookup of an air line.

RE: Roadmaster bracket question

As stated above the EZ-5 does not have a cross bar. I contacted Roadmaster regarding my 2014 Honda baseplate about what I "lost" by going to the EZ-5. The answer is you cannot attach accessories with the EZ-5. Accessories like a rock sheild, quick connect safety cables (I'm now sure what else.) I've always HATED the cross bar and the extra hardware associated with the crossbar/adapter plate including the short breakaway cable. It required me to roll around on the ground to hook all that stuff up. With my new -5 base plate I can hook up without getting on my belly. In addition to that there use to be what I guessed was 40# of hardware on the front of the CRV when I unhooked. Finding a secure place to store all that crappe was always a small problem. With the new -5 there are only two arms to be removed which can easily be stored within the CRV. I've towed my 99 CRV for 9 years without a rock sheild. There is no damage that I can see from not having a rock guard. One cavaet: I have not yet towed with the -5 base plate (I recently got the car.) So use or throw out this information as you are inclined. Eric, currently in Las Vegas
