But there are consumers that don't like warm devices and will use this as a reason to return. These are not as cool as older phones. They will warm up.
I have an iPhone 5 on a Verizon Share Everything contract. Since my internet needs are pretty much limited to e-mail and web browsing, I was hoping to use the Moibile Hotspot for my primary connectivity. The salesman at the Verizon store advised against it, saying that 40% of the "early warranty problems" with the iPhone 5 had resulted from failure due to overheating from excessive use of the Mobile Hotspot. He said this is not a problem with the iPad. I have not noticed the overheating that he describes, but my experience is still limited.
Does anyone have knowledge of or experience with this problem?
They want to sell me a Jetpack, but if the problem is real I'm considering just going with the iPad. Does anyone have experience with using the iPad mobile hotspot as their primary connection? iPad Mini?
