    We currently use a Verizon 3G USB dongle for our home internet, as we live in the sticks with no cable to the house. The dongle we have is an ancient 3G unit that is about 5 years old, in dire need of an upgrade. We don't want to buy a new device through verizon because they rip you off. We have an Unlimited plan from the bygone days of a few years ago on it, and don't want to upgrade, because we will have to change plans.

    My question is, do you think Verizon will let me upgrade to a new 4G unit I buy from somewhere else without upgrading my plan?

    Any 4G modem you would recommend?

    Someone else has to have a similar predicament.

    More than the wife knows!
    I would just call them and ask the same question. All they can say is no or yes and dosnt cost you a thing. I looked into them a few years back and i do not get enough signal at my house to use so i ended up with crappy Hughes net. It was either that or dial up :mad:

    I guess I just need to figure out how to root my smart phone so I can use it as a hotspot sometimes.

    case in point, phone companies blow.
