Has anyone had any trouble with Blackberry devices making the MiFi lock up? I'm attempting to use it with a Blackberry Playbook and Bold 9780. Both of these devices cause the Mifi to freeze and it requires that I do a battery pull to make it work. Do I have a bad Mifi or is this happening to everyone?
I did research the concern with the Mi-Fi locking up and I found no other common cases. In this situation, I think a master reset would be best to resolve this issue.
It's fairly simple to reset this device, the master reset button is in a small hole located on the bottom of the device, under the battery cover.
This button returns the device to factory settings, including re-setting the network name (SSID) and network key (Wi-Fi passkey) to those printed on the sticker affixed to the back of the device.
Thank you! Have a great day!
my mifi 4501l also locks up frequently. 2 hours usage is my recorord without a lockup. Verizon claims it is my area, but modems and phones work well and I have 5 bars
Thanks to the community for posting. @odiedog: I can definitely understand how having internet service lock can be very frustrating. It has happened with my Mifi hotspot too. Have you tried connecting using a different computer? If you could please give me your zip code, I want to do some research in the area to make sure we are not having any issues? I look forward to resolving this issue for you. Thanks.
