Questions & Answers for MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot

Question
Can two MIFI devices share one plan?
Hi, if I wanted to throw out my family's home DSL internet, could I buy multiple devices to share one plan? The idea would be that while I was traveling the home internet using the other MIFI would still be active.

If this is a "phone", then my guess is that two devices cannot share one "phone number".

Sorry, no. The MiFi 2200 works strictly within the USA.

The MiFi 2200 uses the Sprint Nationwide Network which only extends throughout the US, Hawaii, Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands. The MiFi 2200 does not roam across other networks either. For these reasons the MiFi 2200 cannot provide web access when located outside the USA. There is no option to make the MiFi 2200 work outside the USA.

Question
Does this give off wifi as it's charging and/or while it's plugged in?
Verizon's MiFi, to my understanding, only works when it's not plugged in/being charged. Is this device the same?
