    Ok, so I just got a Mifi 2200 and I did not activate it or do anything before I left town. I figured I would just set it up when I got to the hotel. Im guessing that was a mistake. Didnt even think twice about the coverage here, but I am not in a Verizon covered area but do have 3G coverage. I am in a small market area covered by Sprint and I think Altel. My question is, can you not activate a new device when not in a Verizon area? Maybe its a dumb question, but at this point I am assuming I wont be able to get it working until I get home on Friday.

    You've got to be in a VZW coverage area to activate. Sorry.

    In order to activate over the air, you need the 1xrtt network. If it's not available then there is no activating.
