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.

I would contact Verizon Support they will be able to give you that information

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.

Sprint prints the phone number for my data card right on the bill (also available when logged onto sprint.com)...  verizon doesn't put the number on the bill?
