Isaac,

Thanks for doing this test. I think youíre going at this thing the right way.

Iím anxious to see what the results are.

Iím thinking youíll get up to 13.6v or higher before you see any results.

Keep us posted.

Mobley

Is this the same as a jetpack, I traveled for work and had internet at all times, with a jetpack. Im with Verizon and with a jetpack at $10.00 a month I had internet and I could watch netflix or any movies so is this different?

Thank you
Ray3

Yes.. . I've had it a couple of days now and have tried it connected to my laptop and to my iPhone. It still times out at whatever I set to timeout to (30 min or 2 hours).

Right now I'm not loving it.

The speed is just about awful, but I do live just at the fringe of the closest cell tower. SpeedTest shows I'm only getting 1-2Mbps Down and .25Mbps Up.

Doing a Speedtest on my iPhone from the same spot I'm getting 8-9Mbps Down and 2Mbps Up.

I'm already thinking about just pulling the SIM card and putting it in a NetGear Nighthawk LTE. Just more money!

Ray,

The idea is the same. Mobil Internet access, but it's not the same as a JetPack.

This device is designed to plug into the OBDII Diagnostic port on you 1996 or newer gasoline automobile. The idea was to give people without onboard wifi, an aftermarket device to add Wifi to their older car. The only thing it gets from the diagnostic port is power, so it's not like it's tracking how fast you drive.

AT&T offered this device with an inexpensive, unlimited data plan ($20 p/mo), probably thinking that most folks wouldn't use much data driving around in the car.

It didn't take long for the RV community to figure out if they could somehow hook it up to 12vdc power, they could have cheap, unlimited data in their RV (that's what I'm trying to do).

Back to your question. . .
This device can work like your JetPack, but you'll need to purchase a separate power adapter like the one CountryB tell us works on his:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This of course is not going to be quite as mobile as the JetPack, but will allow you to have Internet access anywhere you can plug in, and also have cell service.

Hope this clears things up a bit for you.

That would cause it not to work well. Have you driven to a better location? Same results?

No. Havenít tried a different location yet.

Right now Iím trying to see if I keep the Mobley with an active connection if it will continue to work without going to sleep. I connected one of the tvís to it and am streaming a long movie off Netflix. Got about 30 more minutes before it hits the 2 hour shutoff.

I hooked up a phone vibrator and solved the shut-off problem. Any motion of the Mobley resets the 2 hour keep alive.

I have still not had a problem with 2 hour shut downs. Six weeks since I reset and it is still monitoring the systems in my MH while in storage connected to the Vega Touch via wifi.

Using the variable bench power supply, the minimum voltage I have found that seems to prevent time out shutdown with a stationary Mobley is 15.0VDC, it shuts down after 30 minutes at 14.8VDC and all test voltages I tried below that. I will do more to confirm this in the next few days.



Additionally movement, voltage stability, AC ripple and or position (right side up vs upside down) may play a role in Mobley shutdown, as I have my test Mobley set to 30 minute time out currently connected to a USB to 12VDC adapter powered by a USB battery pack and it is running over 30 minutes now with 11.87VDC output, the first 20 minutes were in a moving car.

I received my 2nd mobley this week. The unit came SIM pin locked, which meant I could not use in my Pepwave Max BR router. I was able to work around by entering in the wrong SIM PIN unlock code 3 times, which locked the SIM. I tried getting the PUK codes to unlock the SIM, but they would not give them to me. Instead, I went to the ATT store, paid $5 for a new sim which comes unlocked by default.

Really important: DO NOT PUT BACK IN THE MOBLEY! It runs a newer firmware which may re-lock the SIM.

Regards

Although I don’t have the Mobley, I have the T-Mobile Sync-Up, we purchased the AC adaptor from Peralta Products (they also have the adaptor for AT&T). On their FAQ page of their website they address the auto shut down. Scroll down to the AT&T section of the FAQs.

FAQ

Q: How to turn off the timeout option in my Mobley?

A: Use any computer and go to the mobley device website: http://attwifimanager. Then
Settings>advanced>Power Save > Choose no Timeout

By the way I had some issues with the adaptor but Peralta was fantastic helping to resolve!!

We’ve had our Sync-Up about six months and are very pleased!!!

Hope this helps!!

Thatís interesting. I just got my Mobley a few days ago. Based on what I read on RV Mobile Internet Resource Center, I went ahead and contacted AT&T Support via their chat support. I was able to get my PUK 1 and PUK 2 codes. So I guess it depends on which rep answers the phone or chat.

I am curious, you say you entered your PIN 3 times. How does that work exactly. Iíve never done it before. Do you mean you were doing this on your Pepwave? Do it have a touch screen for entry, or do you access the Pepwave via a browser address?

One last question. Has AT&T ever given you any trouble about using the Mobley SIM in your Pepwave?

Thanks!
