Simply put, anyone else (or I) can use the hotspot connection in a phone and/or tablet with the tethering ability in the (wifi only) VITA or just opt for connecting to a wifi signal.
yep regret my 3g version. after a year of not using my vodaphone credit my simcard is now unusable. when i bought it i thought better safe then sorry on the 3g connection. in hindsight i would have been better of with the wifi version.
Yea I almost made the mistake you made, sorry btw, had it totally paid off and everything thinking just like you "better safe than sorry" then I came to my senses and realized why bother with a 3g vita when I can use my 4g phone as a hotspot.
mine is 3g and since im using a european vita , its open line i used 3g most of the time since i lived in a province and there is no wifi here 3g is my source of internet connection ^_^
Good point. I'll still hold true that if you (or anyone else) has a phone or can find a portable router that does better than 3G (i.e. 4G LTE), than your better off using that since you can actually play online and stream better stuff. But the browser and text chat works well enough on VITA's 3G.
exactly! the 3g is only good when it comes to web browsing and messaging and sadly my vita got a burn in because of that :(
I've not got that and I've had my VITA since launch and played it a lot, surfed a bit (but I use my phone to browse mostly).
Yeah, if the 3G wasn't carrier-locked, I would have gotten one of those instead. But all I've got is the Wifi, which is good enough for me.
being carrier-locked in the NA is really a bad move by sony actually....
I agree with that.
That article is a pain to read with the gray background and a slightly darker gray text.
I don't know much about 3G, 4G LTE and etc, but it would be cool if streaming PS4 games works with a Vita connected via 3G.
