NETZERO 4G HOTSPOT NETZERO 4G PERSONAL HOTSPOT DO NOT BUY THE NETZERO 4G HOTSPOT - I USED UP ALL MY MOBILE BROADBAND BY CHARGING MY UNIT!! Internet
I JUST RECEIVED MY NETZERO 4G PERSONAL HOTSPOT. I PLUGGED IT IN TO GET FULLY CHARGE BEFORE I TRIED TO TEST IT TO SEE IF IT WORKS.
I LEFT IT PLUGGED IN OVERNIGHT! THE FOLLOWING DAY (KEEP IN MIND I HAVE NOT ACTUALLY USE IT YET), I RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE! (Also keep in mind, I changed the ID and Password on the unit, to make sure no one can share my hotspot 4G without my authorization)

I CALLED TO COMPLAIN, THINKING THIS WAS AN ERROR. [continued below]....
..... BOY, WAS I SHOCKED WHEN I WAS TOLD THAT " Mr Wright.... While it's being charged, it will can use up all the data "WITHOUT YOU ACTUALLY USING IT" ...WITHOUT BEING CONNECTED, I DID NOT UPLOAD OR DOWN LOAD A THING! BUT IT USED UP ALL MY BRAND WIDTH JUST FOR ME TO CHARGE THE UNIT??? WTF??
I'm still in shock! I did not check RIPreport.com before I purchase this unit for a total of $74 (delivered)...I should have googled netzero, because I saw 58 complaints lodged against netzero... I DID NOT KNOW THIS COMPANY ABUSED IT'S CUSTOMERS LIKE THIS! THE COMPLAINTS VARIES FROM DIFFERENT DEPARTMENTS AND ISSUES, BUT THE COMMON DENOMINATOR IS "NETZERO" THE COMPANY!
I'm sure they used all type of "reasonable" justifications....but in the end... "WHERE THERE IS SMOKE............THERE IS FIRE!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THE COMPANY!!! DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM SUCH AN ABUSIVE COMPANY...IT'S ABUSIVE TO IT'S CORE, THAT WHY I'M TYPING TO WARN OTHERS TO READ RIPOFFREPORT.COM BEFORE YOU BUY ANYTHING!!
IF YOU REALLY WANT A HOTSPOT. GO WITH (((competitor's name redacted)))... If the signal is strong in your area... Please go with (((redacted))) ... I had to return my hotspot from (((redacted))) because of signal strength!! BUT, their customer service was AWESOME! NETZERO HAS THE WORSE CUSTOMER SERVICE!
My model# WIXFMM-122 Parts# 990750-0237R Just incase someone think I'm for one company vs another. I'm a real estate broker.... I have no association with NETZERO or (((redacted))) ...
BUY (((redacted))), they did not have coverage in my area so I had to return it... but customer service was awesome. The area that I had coverage was great!! sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company, ..plus, if you post a competitors name more than likely they will show up on search engines as a Rip-off! - - your comments on this policy are welcome.
