i also need something that doesnt require my phone to have service (which it doesnt at the momment)
A hotspot requires Cell coverage. No Cell, no hotspot (or MIFI). If the problem is coverage, you need to find a cell service that has coverage where you want, by looking at coverage maps.
The MIFIs are all reasonably priced, there are some pay as you go and some vendors lease them for free for a limited time. (I think I saw this @Tmobile).
Update: Maybe you don't mean HotSpot? Do you NOT need internet service?
It is not a hot spot you want. You need a Mobil Broadband dongle. It connects you to the Internet via the Cell Phone Network.
If you get the right dongle it will take the signal from the Cell Phone and restransmit it as a WIFI Signal.
But as said in a previous answer, No cell phone coverage and you will not get internet.
Huawei 3 device. Its called a mifi if you want to search for it .
Ah-h-h-h-h….you need wifi access….either through a laptop / netbook / notebook that has wifi access then you can use hot spots….you can have a smart phone that has no data package ( no text / talk / data ) and still use the wifi part….or at least on my phone I can….
