    Has anyone heard if there is an alternative to MIO coming out? I don't mean a hotspot. I mean an actual device that gives you the internet without worrying if you are in a hotspot, similar to MIO. Wouldn't it be great if one of the two internets (Setar or Digicell) let you use your mio device but did the same thing that MIO did? I'm not getting rid of my device just yet. You never know

    Setar has the MiFi device that you can either rent or buy. If you have Verizon, I bought a MiFi for$50 and bought 500mb card for $15 to unlock and activate the MiFi and all I need to do is purchase a Nano SIM card for $20 and then purchase a pre paid card depending on how many gigabytes you need. You can get 3 gigabytes for $20, 5 gigabytes for $30 and 15 gigabytes for $56. So you can connect multiple devise just like the MIO.

    The MIO does not have a SIM card, so it is not compatible with Setar. I called Setar plus emailed them regarding the MIO. Setar told me that I had a MiFi device that took a SIM card that I could purchase a SIM card from them and that is what I did, as I said in my previous post. Setar does carry a MiFi device to rent or buy. Not sure what the cost is.

    I called Setar and they told me if I have a MiFi hotspot device, all I need to do is purchase the SIM card that my MiFi takes, which is a Nano SIM card which Setar carries for $20, at the airport. My MiFi is unlocked and activated already. Then I need to purchase a pre paid card for the gigabytes that you want, with the password on the card to login. As soon as I turn on my MiFi my cellphone, laptop or table with detect the MiFi and then I just login just like the MIO did and you can connect multiple devices to the MiFi.

    I understand all except "if you have Verizon"
    what does Verizon have to do with star and their mifi?



    I have a 6splus iphone.
    I get the SIM card from star for that phone from Setar
    I then get/buy/rent the wifi device Setar
    I then buy the gigabytes etc..
    and I am up and running, and can log my laptop or iPad in to the internet.

    where does Verizon fit into this ?

    I bought my own MiFi device, it is just the MIO, but the MIO does not have a SIM card in it, so I wanted to find my own MiFi, so that is where Verizon came in because I bought MiFi with a Verizon Nano SIM card in it already, so I can purchase a Nano SIM card at Setar and use it just like the MIO.

    I did not want to change my SIM card from my iPhone, I wanted my own MiFi device like the MIO, that I can use every year.
