Can I use the 4510L while it's on charger? To me that is a big deal as I can use a usb power pack to charge while I am outside and still be able to connect to the 4510L that way I can probably double the battery life.
I picked one up and so far it is solid! The connection has been very stable and the speeds are really nice. The speeds are actually better than with the Samsung unit.
I got mine this afternoon, but I guess they had issues programming the 4G sim card since I was porting a number into it so it would cancel my Sprint broadband card service when I activated this. So I'll be stopping at the local VZW store to get a fresh one and they will assist in activating it. I also bought the antenna pigtail and a suction cup antenna for the hell of it.

Just confirmed that it will work while charging.
Dustin, where did you get the antenna pigtail and suction cup antenna?
So can anyone else confirm that it can't be used when charging via USB? I don't really care if it can do USB connect or just simply be used as wireless hotspot but I need some option of using it when charging via USB
I think the OP and other mentioned it works while charging. Which is a great news. I just received my Samsung LC11, I have not activated so I am going to exchange it for the Mifi4G
It's interesting that the plastic bag containing the USB cable states: "The USB cable is only for software upgrades"
I am also interested if the 4510L can charge via the computer USB port and be used as WiFi at the sametime. I'm trying to decide on the Novatel or the Samsung, I think I read the samsung will charge via USB and be used at the same time.
The 4510L cannot be charged via the computer and be used as WiFi simultaneously. All data connections are dropped when the device is connected to the computer via USB.
I don't remember if the Samsung was charged when connected to the computer. I do remember that the data connection remained on. In fact, when the Samsung is connected to the computer there's no response whatsoever from the computer.
What I can tell you is the Novatel is more steady at maintaining a data connection when compared to the Samsung.
