Hi,

We have decided to get mifi so that we can 'call home' via FaceTime and keep in touch with you lovely guys :yes:

We are wondering if anyone who is going to Florida shortly and willing to pick one up for us (we are not entirely sure which model to get - any advice would be very handy! including the price so that we can pay someone in advance)

We also would like to be able to use the park apps etc

Any advice on data and how to top up would be extremely useful!

Thanks guys

Jeff & Stephen

I'd be quite interested in this too, is there anyway we could share one between a number of us to offset the cost?

Should be possible, once the device itself is purchased off the shelf, all that's needed thereafter is to pick up a prepaid card at bestbuy and phone a number to use it to top up. You can tell online how much you have left.

I'm going on Thursday and will be happy to pick 'it' up for you but I have absolutely no idea of what you are talking about :unsure:

I have Facetime on my Ipod Touch so I know what that is, but Mifi.... no idea at all

No worries Jeff :-) Is it something I can pick up in Walmart or would I have to go somewhere specific?

Shopping wise, we plan to go to the Florida Mall at some point and also Lake Buena Vista Factory Village but that's about if for shopping, so hopefully we'll be able to get it somewhere within those places?

Is it possible for you to take a picture of your mifi and post it here so we all know what it looks like....

Just wondering if it is possible to buy mifi here at UK unlocked (somehow) and buy airtime voucher at Florida?

mmmmm they must have unlocked mifi devices I guess but I can't say I've seen any around. Perhaps I just haven't looked hard enough!

You'd need a sim for a US network (and they don't all use sims) AND an airtime voucher don't forget.

Tbh, I'd just wait and just go to best buy when you get there. you'll be able to pick up the whole lot in about 5 mins job done.

Hmmmm, I think the nearest would be over by Millenia Mall. There is one near there, but not at the mall, if that makes any sense?

I think Florida Mall has one too, but Keith would better know that. He's our Florida Mall expert. :yes:

What about Orlando International Airport? Or would that be a silly price?

Things in the airport are usually so overpriced it's beyond silly!

yeah I usually find the florida mall one is better... millenia doesnt seem to have the same stock although you can check online to see which has them in stock

Deb is going soon, she might be able to help you, have a look online at Best Buy or better still get Keith to have a look :wink: :D and then you will be able to give a picture or number of the one you want.
