Does what I want, but not perfect – Genuine AT&T 3G WIFI 802.11b/g Wireless Router Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It works with my carrier here in Canada! The battery really does last a long time, I believe more than four hours the last time I checked. Good speed, enough to stream youtube.
Cons:
My iPhones lose the connection quite often, and take a long time to connect. It seems to freeze up every day or two, requiring me to remove the battery to reboot it. I had to flash the firmware a number of times with different firmwares before it would work with my carrier. The stock firmware seems to default to AT and T as a profile, regardless of what other profiles I add.
Other:
This thing will work great for someone using it as a portable WiFi hotspot. I use it as my go-to router because I'm off-grid and want something with a tiny power consumption in my little cabin.
Bottomline:
I'm still happy I bought this. I bought a second one and will see if it is as temperamental as this one. At least I now know that I have to update the firmware to get it to work properly.
