Will a AT&T Netgear AirCard 815S or Netgear Nighthawk MR1100 LTE mobile hotspot work on Verizon?

AT&T service is unreliable in my area. Sometimes it's fine, other times I can't even ping google. I'm going to get an unlimited backup mobile hotspot plan through Visible or Nomad Internet. Visible is most attractive because it's as low as $25/month for unlimited data. Visible runs on Verizon... but I have both an AT&T AirCard 815S and an AT&T Netgear Nighthawk LTE hotpot. It would be great if I could use one of these, but I can't find any definitive info on running either of them on Verizon. Does anyone have any advice or experience here?

Both AC815 and MR1100 are not Verizon certified. That means you can't activate a brand new SIM from Verizon network with these devices. But if you can activate a Verizon or Visible SIM card on a certified device, you can use the SIM card on AC815S and MR1100. You need to adjust your APN setting accordingly. This may be challenging sometimes.

 

Thanks
