	Ok since more than one person asked me:

	ZTE MF96 4G LTE Wireless Mobile Hotspot Router Sonic

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZTE-MF96-4G-LTE-Wireless-Mobile-Hotspot-Router-Sonic-2-0-WiFi-T-Mobile-USB/181704373447

	with this sim card:

	https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13186

	The one I received had an OTA software update available
and I applied it.  Don't know if that was required to make it work for v6
but being an avid software beta tester, i always update firmware.

	- Jared
