You are limited to 5Gs depending on the plan. Thats more than enough for reglkar use. If you plan to download a lot of streaming video or online games, I would stay with a dsl.

Data Stick would require a seperate plan from your phone line. You would need a Mobile Broadband Rate Plan for the Data Stick.

Yes. I have used my laptop stick on my personal desktop at home after Hurricane Ike and DSL was out. Occasionally our carrier has problems with repair work and I will use the laptop stick on my home pc because it runs close to the same speed. You do need to watch the data you are downloading, the max on my plan is 5Gs.

answer 2
Yes, although that's not really a great idea because of the 5GB limit, home broadband is a better way to go for desktop computers unless you are a light user.

The connection manager is not compatible with Android O/S at this time. You would have no way to install the drivers and manage your connection.

Yes and it works great but you will need a cradlepoint router so you need one more piece of hardware before you can connect the wii with it. You cannot plug the rocket into the usb port on the wii you need the cradlepoint router.

No. 2 Sticks = 2 SIMs = 2 Rate Plans. You could share 1 stick between the two laptops, but not use both at same time on a single plan.

Get a personal hotspot router from a company such as cradlepoint Then you can plug the wireless card into the router and connect both computers to the access point.

Yes. If there is no 4G it will fallback to 3G. If no 3G it will fallback to the slower EDGE system.

If you have Tmobil cell service in your area the rocket will work. It has its own cell number it calls to connect to the cell towers. Most likely you won't get the 4g speeds you can check the website for your service in your area.
