OK I have a Virgin Mobile 3G modem but we weren't very happy with the coverage last year and we were on the east coast that year. We essentially only had coverage on the interstates or so it seemed. So I want to move over to Verizon, right now I'm not even sure that I want a hotspot since that would just let my 14 old burn up the GB.
So I was looking at the Pantech modem (remanufacturered is free) but the data plans only offer 5 and 10 GB plans. Frankly for email and occasional web checks I doubt I'd need more that 1 GB on the road. Are they just hiding the cheaper plans or is the $50/mo 5 GB the bottom line? The Pantech has a antenna plug too for an external antenna.
I understand I can plug one of these into a wireless modem and get a hotspot, it that correct?
Any other suggestions, I'm certainly not welded to this plan?

Looks like that is the smallest plan for their mobile data devices. Maybe switch your phone over to Verizon and get a droid. They have hotspot built in, and there are apps out there to get past the tethering fee. And I think they have the double data deal still available.

Might want to check out http://www.millenicom.com/. The offer plans using both the Sprint and Verizon networks. Since your Virgin didn't work all that well (it runs on Sprint) might want to consider the Verizon plans. (You'll have to email and ask which ones are Verizon - I forget.)
