I have Clear 4G in Chicago. Speed is amazing! Any way to use the USB dongle to provide 4G access into the IPad?

You have the option of getting a modem from clear. Or you could left your laptop on and share it's connection (your laptop would be the gateway computer). Simple to setup if you have XP or later O.S.

I am looking to be able to do this while I am mobile, versus someplace where I can plug something in.

Sounds like the answer is no. A shame there isnt a USB port in this thing, an IPad on 4G would rock.

No you can do this. I was in Chicago on the train on Monday using Clear.

If you want a new device or additional device to your USB then get this https://www.clear.com/shop/devices/clearspot
I wish it had come out before I bought mine. It is only $99

But I bought this because the built-in device wasn't out yet. I have this PHS300 Personal WiFi Hotspot - 3G/4G | Cradlepoint Technology

I ended up with an extra one. If you are interested I will sell you my extra one.

i got a taste of 4G in Portland last month and WOW,,,,, It's awesome fast.. I hear Clear Wire and Sprint are working on releasing 4G in the Sacramento market this year,, i'm waiting very impatiently.

I just wonder how the network will work when it gets loaded up???:confused:

Wow the more I read the more I like! Its a shame it cant be imbedded into the IPad, but it looks like the best option short of that!

Thanks for pointing it out!!

That sucks! For unlimited data, at 4G speed, its $45 a month here in Chicago....

I have the AT&T unlimited for $30 but as soon as I get the hotspot I am gone....May be a bit more hassle with having to have the hotspot with me but it looks like its worth it...

They offer nation wide 3G coverage yet wont allow you to sign up unless you live in a 4G coverage area. :(
