Usmobile (iPass) worked on a DL flight from AMS-ATL - but it took an hour to activate (while paying for one hour gogo air). I had to chat with Gogo, USmobile and iPass to activate the account/purchase code that they give you. iPass chat support was fantastic. USmobile simply said call iPass - not our problem. Gogo was kind enough to give me a credit for one hour free session - even though it wasn't their problem.

I have a regular GoGo subscription, but signed up with USMobile as an experiment. I've been on 8 domestic segments are 4 overseas long-haul segments in the past few weeks and the USMobile plan has worked great on all flights. I've not used my GoGo login at all for these flights.

I'm thinking of cancelling my $69/month GoGo account and getting two $10 USMobile accounts for my tablet and laptop.

My first month of the $10 USMobile expires today, so I went to the site to renew. The renew button is now "Join Waiting List" - apparently they are "sold out" and now you have to joint the waiting list to get back on. As far as I can tell, even having an existing plan doesn't grandfather you in.

This sucks, since I've been using the wifi plan on my flights without issuse.

Like stories are being told in a US Mobile iPass thread in Travel Technology. Bad news, indeed.

My work will pay for a GoGo subscription yet I continue to try and get this US Mobile subscription to work. I like a good deal!

Iíll sure miss this deal, got it days before it died. Over the North Atlantic right now and the connection has been generally faster than on my recent domestic legs.

I miss the IPass as well but at least messaging is free now on Delta.

Only issue I had with IPass was at the Hilton in SF. For some reason Ipass was able to connect to their WIFI automatically and I couldn't figure out how to disconnect from the Ipass connection so I could enter my credentials with Hilton to get the premium WIFI.

I had that problem with a Marriott downtown PVG. However, I quickly learned that the iOS iPass app makes it easy to not auto-login to various Wifis like Marriott and Hilton.

My account is not currently active but when I reactivate in a few days I can write up details of what to do in the settings.

How are you able to reactivate it? I tried to reactivate mine and got a message that the offer is sold out and the option to be put on a waiting list.

I got my office to sign up enough people to qualify for the $25 per month. Sorry, I did not mean to imply that I got another $10 a month US Mobile iPass.

FWIW: I was just able to complete this form by using a card that bills to my address in Mexico City. US cards seem to fail. Good luck.

This thread or a one like the current thread on Travel Technology could have saved you some money.

In terms of iPass, one can contact them directly to determine what options work best for a particular company.
