Q: Is this the UNLOCKED North American version:
A: Hi Tom, these are unopened, brand new in box AT&T Branded Netgear Nighthawks with the latest band support. They are locked however they can be unlocked by contacting AT&T customer server or by using an unlock company on ebay that can unlock the device for you. We are unable to unlock them ourselves without opening them and prefer to sell them as new and as they were intended for the USA market.
Q: If this is NOT the North American version - is it at least unlocked on the ATT network - so it can be used with other carriers like Verizon or at-Mobile?
A: This is the north american version branded for AT&T. It can be unlocked but you would need an AT&T account to call AT&T to unlock which they will do for free or you can pay a service to unlock the device which is available online.
Q: I live in Canada and travel throughout the USA in winter and Canada in summer. Can I swap SIM cards, for example use ATT in the USA and Rogers Wireless in Canada? Thanks in advance.
A: This listing is for an AT&T branded hotspot that can be unlocked by contacting AT&T for an unlock code which is provided free of charge. Unlocking the device will allow sim cards from non AT&T carriers to work in the unit. We are working on providing unlocked devices shortly that will work on any carrier but they are not available as of 12/5/2019 on our store.
