iPhone Tethering Alternative

You’ve of course heard the big news that Verizon will finally be carrying the iPhone and that within the next couple months the phone will also function as a hotspot. The idea of turning your phone into a hotspot is old news for all of you that already have hotspot-capable phones, but so is the realization that a smartphone doesn’t make that great of a wireless hotspot!

Before you shell out that extra $20 a month to your provider for iPhone tethering check out this article in BNET about the Smarter, Cheaper Alternative to iPhone Tethering: getting an actual mobile hotspot device. It goes into the various reasons (price, share-ability, battery life and more) why reconsidering that tethering charge is better for your wallet & your smartphone.

No Facetime on Verizon iPhone

As you know, the iPhone finally came to Verizon this week. We’re sure some of you were bummed to find out that just like on the AT&T iPhone, you can only use FaceTime on a wifi connection. Lucky for you Facetime is #nbd for the Rover Puck. Our 4G wireless is crazy fast so it’s a breeze to make those video calls regardless of whether your iphone’s on Verizon or AT&T.

Multitask like a boss

Keepin’ busy online? We’re pretty heavy data users too but it’s no big deal with the Rover Puck. All Rover devices offer unlimited 4G so you can stream music, video, games & more to your heart’s content. Even if that means watching The Sandlot, the History of Dance video and streaming Pandora radio all at once.

How do you multitask?
