    Hey guys I'm looking for the best 3G/LTE USB dongle. I want an unlocked modem with the best global support. I was looking at the T-Mobile connect model here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0067BN116...=UTF8&colid=ADJQT3P5O15&coliid=I248IV4USUXFH7
    But it seams it won't support LTE and some of the reviews are bad (although allot of them seam more like driver issues or user error). Without getting too technical I'm looking for a dongle that supports 3G-UMTS HSPA+ on 850/1700/1900/2100 and LTE on 700 (Band 13)/800 (Band 20)/1700 (Band 4)/1800 (Band 3)/2600 (Band 7)....I guess I'm looking for a USB dongle that supports a similar type of global support as my iPhone 5c. Regardless if anyone has any success stories with ANY dongle I'd appreciate it!!

    I was looking on Amazon last night and these dongles barely support the same amount of bands as an iPhone 4 :O

    I dont think what you want exists. Better to unlock your phone so you can pop in a sim card for wherever you are at and tether off of it.

    Yeah its already unlocked....I just know that some carriers else where block tethering on the iPhone with their network settings...personally I don't get this: Data is data is data, who cares where it comes from? Anyways I suppose I'll just stick with that option for now.
