    New with a Surface Go and first time mobile hotspot with Visible plan

    On complex web sites like Disneyland, I notice a delay in clicks and on screen keyboard entry. I blame the website mostly but I'm glad I got the 8gb ram and I'm sure the SSD doesn't hurt.

    Day 1, 8-128, no LTE but trying mobile hotspot with Visible $40 unlimited

    So far the Visible service has given me pretty solid data service. I'm almost to the point of getting my phone number ported over and using my Pixel 3XL as a mobile hotspot. The Surface Go has been very handy for me. I think the Typecase and a sleeve are the only things I need to really make...

    Yes, it has gone well except windows did an update while the surface wasn't "plugged in". I think I lost some of my settings because it took a reinstall windows but keep your files option to get it going again. It's kind of my fault. I was plugged in to 5v USB-C and the message seemed to say...

    New with a Surface Go and first time mobile hotspot with Visible plan

    Oh, my ZTE R2 Visible phone seems pretty OK and at $19, I think it was a good choice for my test drive. I have a Pixel 3XL which is also compatible so if I'm happy with the service after 2-3 weeks I'll port over my number on that phone and the R2 will become my backup.

    As expected the mobile hotspot internet speeds are not terribly fast, 5Mbps down and 3.6Mbps up. It should be enough for my needs.

    Success, finally. The Visible cell service made me jump through several hoops to activate cell service and then mobile hotspot. I have a lot more testing, software to load, etc.

    Day 1, 8-128, no LTE but trying mobile hotspot with Visible $40 unlimited

    I have always been stuck between devices I never carry out of inconvenience and cell phones that don't do everything I want. I tried an Acer convertible years ago but the charger and battery were so bad that it wouldn't actually gain charge unless it was entirely shut down, no sleep. It was...
