One of the things that has been a pain was that when the MiFi is being charged, we couldn't stop it from broadcasting. That has been fixed. Now you can click the button momentarily to toggle wifi ON or wifi OFF when charging the unit!! HOORAY!!
I"ve also heard that the issue of disconnecting while charging on AC is resolved but I have not verified. Does anyone have any official release notes on the Verizon Firmware? I have confirmed there is a new Admin web page with animated battery icon. The broadcast toggle on and off while charging works awesome.
Mac users know that by eschewing Windows they are foregoing universal software compatibility. Anyone with special needs should be aware that their best bet for finding software available for their products is with the Windows ecosystem, which commands 92% of the market.
