Question about 3G for the mifi 4082

I recently received the mifi 4082. I have the blue light on my mifi 4082 indicating 4G and it still complains about 3g setup. Do I need to have the 3g fallback no matter what? I know only 4G is available with the basic/free plan, I just need to understand my options with this device.

    Thanks! yes, I do get the setup.3g.freedompop.com message and have attempted to update the profile, but was logged out and the process seemed to abort. I will try to plug the device into my laptop and see if it will finish. Thanks for the confirmation.

    I'm having this exact same issue. I updated the prl and profile, but when I try to open a web page I get the '3g is not enabled on this device' message. I've tried putting the setting to '4g only', as well as putting it to '4g preferred' but neither of them worked. Interested to see if we can come to a resolution

    @Trenton Harem
    I just sent you a video to update the profile and PRL-sorry I did not read this one first...

    if after you update the profile and prl--and you got no errors....

    Try and find a place you get a better signal. Try a open window-one with no tree in the way. Sometimes going outside to see if you get a better signal. I have even seen other members go clear across town to get a better signal.

    also take a peek at this coverage map...make sure you click data/not voice
