Being able to create an SSID and use standard wifi connections/ passwords to access data that you've already paid for, should be a standard and included feature of a wifi hotspot. Requiring a $15.00/month "Premium" to use features that are available for free anywhere else in the world is a blatant ripoff.
I feel cheated Used to get 100MB for every share, and as I travel a lot, have many shares at airports, but now I get 100MB once a month. This uses up bandwidth and battery, and worst of all, I have to pay if want to make my Karma Go private. What started as a social Internet is not social any more.
Premium features?? You mean basic features that should be included with any decent hotspot? Like setting my Wi-Fi's name and a secure private network? That I've been patiently waiting for since I purchased the first iteration of a Karma? That I now need to pay monthly for?? C'mon, Karma, this is already a premium device at that price. I shouldn't be gouged for features that are already built-in to my device--especially because these features cost nothing to your service which is simply to provide connectivity.
Bricked device As with Kirsten below, light bright green but says device is off and needs updating. Gives poor instructions on process. No help available from within the app. No help available period. I think company out of business.
Updates The app says I have no connected devices when my phone is connected to it. It also says I need to update my device and I may have to restart it multiple times to fully update it. I've restarted it at least ten times and I still get the same message on my app.
The death of karma go From forcing users away from their biggest selling point (refuel), to hiking prices and killing sharing silently and without informing people, the cash loving karma will be bankrupt by next year as it quickly went from the hero of hotspots to the inevitable villain.
