Thank you for the links! One of them had some info I was searching for so I appreciate the response. I agree it is most likely not worth the money. For me, it's more dependent on if it will be used for road trips or commuting working on homework. We'll see if it's actually used, sort of why I like the idea of a free trial. Also, just one of those things that I want to know...haha.There are 2 modems in the Bronco Sport. One is for the Connected Services. This is what allows you to remote unlock the doors and remote start, flash lights, etc. That is what the Fordpass app uses. The other one is for the Wi-Fi. You need to sign up with AT&T and you also need to complete some vehicle settings. AT&T will assign you a virtual phone number to manage the account through AT&T.
If you can't get the Pass app to work (unsurprising), just do it on the website.
You need to use settings to enable the Wi-Fi and give it an SSID and a password, like *******

Honestly, it's not worth it unless you have a bunch of spare money to throw at data plans you don't intend to consume. It is locked the the vehicle so you can't use it in a restaurant or store. Your phone plan already has data. It can't make calls. It isn't cheap as data plans go. Maybe if you had no phone and wanted to use the Pandora on the radio? Then it's still more money than the SiriusXM. Honestly not many reasons to use it. It's worth maybe $5 a month, but they'll never sell it that cheap.
Edit: Should clarify I won't be using the wifi for homework while road tripping or commuting, thats for the other familial companions...then again maybe they won't either, we'll see, might be nice to have and might be like the stack of stuff in my garage that MUST be had but is only used twice a year.
