    Can you plug in those USB hotspots into a rt tablet like the surface? If that doesn't work, do the MiFis at AT&T work?

    Never tried plugging into a USB hotspot... but as the MiFis are basically Wifi, yes it will work.

    You can often use your phone as a Wifi hotspot too - e.g. the 920 does this on the AT&T shared data plan - hotspot is a free feature on that plan. Not an AT&T advert - it does the same on other carriers, this is just what I use.

    Okay. If the USB plugged into the surface works, please let me know.
