When is the new MIFI device scheduled to be released?

OK I've had quite a bit of experience with faulty tech and dealing with tech support people. I'm no programmer or expert but my gut is telling me I'm not going to see a fix for the MIFI 4510L.

 

SO

 

When is the new model set to be released?

 

AND

 

Will Verizon allow their business customers to turn in the 4510L devices for the new devices. Your faulty device has caused our company to lose money. Your customers deserve compensation.

 

I have looked at all the "workarounds" and "fixes" it is clearly obvious that they do not work. I should be able to:

 

Plug the device into the charger

Turn on the device

Connect to the device with my computer

I should have uninterrupted internet access all day long (10-12hrs) provided I don't leave the signal area.

 

This is the way it should be and until VZ meets these expectations I will not be satisfied.
