I have Verizon Mifi, a wireless hotspot that I use to connect to internet.
I believe there is a phone number associated with it. if so, where can I found that number? is it on the device itself?

Thank you

I don't know about a phone number but the access code is usually on a sticker on the underside.

I've never heard of a phone number that you can either call to or from with a MiFi device.

You might want to ask who you bought it from about a phone number.

They have excellent support.

Scott - I am an answerer, not the asker here. I was just demonstrating where it can be found.

My device has its own SIM card so it cannot really be used for phone calls, but it needs a number for the ISP and for billing.
