  3. Last December 30th, I bought the Starter Plug-It for 995. I was happy because it says I have 120 INTERNET hours for FREE. But last night, January 4th, I couldn’t connect to the Internet. I re-loaded it and voila, it’s back on! I guess 120 INTERNET hours starts from the time you first used your plug-it, and runs continuously even when you disconnected it. Does anyone have a similar experience?
