    Leave wifi on, try to connect to home wifi. Will it let you connect?
    Try browsing, etc. good ?
    Ok, now turn off wifi.
    Do you see 3g/4g in notifications bar at top?
    If yes, browse places. Is it working?
    Errors? Any error number ? Post here.

    Is it a cellular and WiFi or WiFi only? You need to know this. Go to freedompop.com and click on link that say "BYOD", it be at the top of the page in the menu section. It take you to a screen that have you enter zip code and your e-mail address you want to use. It take you to screen that say "you have no cover in the area or a page that have you enter your MEID number. If everything go ok, then you can download the messaging app in google play.

    If you have WiFi only tablet, you will only can use WiFi. Just to let you know.

    Hello again!!!!

    What type of Tablet do you have? When you plug in the Freedom Stick Bolt, does it look like you have Ethernet connection?(with a yellow exclamation mark? Or is the little computer screen free of the mark?

    to get to setting of the bolt...Try>>>>192.168.14.1 ...should take you to a page almost like a wifi connection....There you get most of the info you need...password should be (admin)

    let me know if this was all you needed...or if you need help configuring?

    You cannot connect the stick to your tablet, it only connect to a USB port. The stick is not a WiFi device. If that you trying to do, it not work.

    @njfulwider5‌ , I think he or she is try to use the tablet as a phone.

    Tap "Settings," "Wireless & networks" and then "Wi-Fi."

    Tap the menu icon, then "Advanced."

    Tap "Wireless & networks," then "Wi-Fi settings."

    Tap disconnect!!!!

    The bolt should resemble a Ethernet connection...and you can move on to what ever you wanted to do!!!

    This post is just packed with info to get you going!!!!You know how to get ahold of me if you have any questions tmr.....@njfulwider5

    No matter what the question was, you got a bunch of great answers!!!!

    The cord they give them is a USB to USB, he have to buy one that is USB to mini USB. It could work, but it may not work. Yes , you have to have WiFi off.

    Some Tablets need them and some don't. I am sure you would know if you have a tablet what you need. Just email if you have any questions. Sorry for the multiple Comments...
    Hope you figure it out

    First, thanks to all of you. I use the Bolt successfully with my Nexus 7 Android tablet BUT I just got an Ematic 7" Jelly Bean Android tablet. Now the Nexus and the Ematic both say only WiFi but I can use the Bolt fine with the Nexus 7 using a OTG MinUSB to full USB cable. When I connect these items to the Ematic, the Bolt searches, then gives me a green light and the 5 blue reception bars. However I get no Internet connection. Perhaps the Ematic does not have RDNIS or CDC? Is thee a tethering app that you think I can use?
    The weird thing is the Bolt when attached does go from amber top green light and the blue bars search and then stay solid. But no connection message even when I try the Bolt ip message.

    @SimplyMe‌
    I did a little digging..try this your android tablet

    1. Turn off wifi.
    2. Plug the stick in the USB port and wait until a connection is established.
    3. Go to Ubee's router IP address ( http://192.168.14.1 ) and under the Advanced setting, select NAT Mode. Then, apply.

    No rooting or additional app is required.

    @SimplyMe‌

    So making sure that your wifi is off...nothing connected....and if there is a Ethernet, its not connected..

    You still can not access the Ip page for the device?
