Every since it was announced, I’ve been envious of those with a MiFi, be it on Verizon’s network or anyone else. It’s such a great idea, and a cool little device, but of course you need a locked-in contract to get to use it. Starting next week, that all changes, as you can buy a MiFi from Virgin Mobile (via Sprint) for $149 that lets you add a data plan to it without a contract. That plan ranges from $10 for 100MB of data to $60 for 5GB. If you don’t like being tied down to contracts and need some wireless, it might be a great way to go.
