We've got your covered, @Danic!


To activate your Hotspot you'll need to select a plan then simply follow these instructions:

  1. Turn on your mobile hotspot device.
  2. Press and hold the power button for two seconds on the Wi-Fi capable device you want to connect and then open your Wi-Fi/network connection manager.
  3. Find your AT&T PREPAID mobile hotspot's Wi-Fi network name (UNITE-xxxx) and connect.
  4. Enter your AT&T PREPAID mobile hotspot's Wi-Fi password. It's displayed on the screen of your mobile hotspot.
  5. Launch your Internet browser.

Please be advised that http://attwifimanager can only be accessed from the phone, tablet, or laptop connected to the mobile hotspot device.


We hope this info helps.
