Just got my 4G hotspot. One of the locations I go to only has 2G service (this is a T-Mobile location, not a partner). The hotsport did not work at this location. It took a long time for the device to find the Edge network and when it found it, I was unable to browse (speed was in a the few Bps range).
A 3G Blacberry at the same location and one teh same 2G Edge tower was working fine browsing at 2G speed.
Why is the device not working on 2G sites? (Side note, the TMO coverage map shows 3G available - that is not the case).
I am having the same issue. I was told when I subscribed that I would get coverage in a 2G area, just slower. Even though I had 3 bars the device could not connect. So, is this a known issue with this device?
