    The N7 2013 doesn't have enough micro USB port oomph for FreedomPop's Bolt?

    Has anyone gotten the Bolt dongle to work? Mine worked perfectly with my Toshiba Thrive, first-gen N7 and even a PC.

    But with my second-gen N7, no lights come on at all, making me wonder if the micro USB port isn't putting out enough current.

    Sigh, two sudden reboots tonight, and now I find this out.

    Maybe you need to use a powered USB hub instead?

    A powered hub should have no problem, but it defeats the dongle's portability.

    Now tonight it's working. Hmm. But per someone's update to this thread at the Toshiba Thrive forums, it doesn't work with Android 4.3 -- argh!
