Lucky I sold mine half year ago. 4G come out, 3G price sure drop. Now using my Lumia 800 as hotspot. If I need 4G, I use my Lumia 920.

My main issue with Public WiFi hotspot is security. It's so easy to packet-sniff WiFi packets it's ridiculous, especially those without security. Then there's also the spoofed Public WiFi which may be capturing your data as you're accessing your banking site.

Or your email, many email servers still use plaintext userid & password... No way I'm going to use Public hotspot for anything that touches my digital identity!

Private MiFi is more secure even though WPA2 has been cracked.
