I use the Mobley without any time limits, but I am not often online for 2 hours at a time.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

While traveling my Mobley is on line 24/7. When not using it for steaming or other internet uses it allows remote connection to my trailer's monitoring devices(cameras and temperature sensors).

As I recall, if your Mobley SIM lock code was changed from the default, the update that reverted to the 2-hour limit was blocked from installing. It's been a couple of years though since I had the SIM in the Mobley, so I may not be remembering that correctly. Some advantages to moving the SIM to a more powerful hotspot are the ability to connect external antennas, the newer hotspots can use the newer bands, and the ability to connect more than 5 devices.

I started having problems getting Mobley to come on-line. Contacted AT&T support, did a reboot and after that went to the 2 hour limit. Wondering now if I should contact AT&T support again to remove/unlock the time limit.
And before I forget again, Thanks for all the answers. What you-all have said makes sense even to this old country boy. Thanks....

I use my Mobley for my work from home connection. Am on line for 9-10 hours continuously on a daily basis. I also leave my work VPN connection alive and connected 24x7 because my company asks for it to stay connected to push patches etc.. No issues.

Recently had Mobley problems after 4-5 years no problems. Finally got onto ZTE tech support and he had me do a Reset. So now it works - for about a half hour and then is off. How do i fix this?
Thanks

I've had a Mobley in my RV for the last couple of years and don't have any problems with 2 hour time limit shutdown. But as I recall that was the default setting in the Mobley after some update that AT&T did a while back. To reset it to no time limit requires you to log into your Mobley as System Administrator and change the time limit to unlimited. The instruction booklet that came with my Mobley tells you how to log in as Admin and do this.

BTW, my Mobley has been powered up in my RV since my last camping trip and I just checked it - it's still up and running fine.

OK Bob, have just updated the time to 2 hours as that was the only option available. There was no unlimited option - unless there is another place to look besides the Power Save

There was something about having to get a PUC number (or something) that needed to be entered to unlock the full potential of the Mobley if you were moving it to a router or after the software update. Does anyone have the correct info on that issue?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
