Frustrated over the deal with the hotspot, I ended buying a 4G one at Walmart. Today, FedEx called me to say that my package was in and that they had made three efforts to deliver it. Since each one was at 2:00 in the afternoon, it was unlikely that anyone would be here. They informed me that I could come and pick this up.
So I made the 15 minute drive to FedEx's facility to pick this up and guess what? my hotspot. I'm still a bit flabbergasted over the reasons why they wouldn't allow me to pick this up before they made THREE delivery attempts, but at least I got the dad blamed thing.
The only thing that I can fathom is that the battery is made of Lithium, and hence a controlled substance. I don't know if there's a potential to abuse this as a drug or make it into a bomb, but so be it. The size is perfect and if it costs less than the 4G I got to run, I'll go ahead and use this one in my truck to provide Internet for the tablet.
This does not excuse, in my eyes why Straight Talk was borderline belligerent when I trying to make sense of seemed like a simple transaction. I'm still working on getting clients, and have at least 15 or 20 plus a landlord I've done work before. Also have a lead on an office suite rather than running this out of my home. Maybe I can use the 4G one for the office and the 3G one for the truck. Maybe I'll have more than one truck, but this is another story. Maranatha!
