Have you had the unit activated?  That's the FIRST thing you need to do.

 

also, when plugged in to the pc via USB, it won't operate as a wifi--something that many new owners are unaware of.  it has to be unplugged to work wirelessly.

 

once pluged in, you can view the manual, which will show up in explorer--the file is embedded in the MiFi unit.

1. In Explorer, go to the virtual drive created by simply plugging in the MiFi via USB  (The drive created will be labeled with the drive letter, followed by "VZAccess Manager"

 

2. In that drive, find the Docs folder

 

3.  The file is "MiFi 2200 User Guide. pdf

 

Enjoy!
