    Hi Kathryn,

    I apologies for the inconvenience. Kindly confirm me if you are trying to use dedicated on multiple devices at a same time. If this is the case then you will not be able to obtain dedicated IP as dedicated IP is a unique IP and can be connected on a single device at a time. However, you can connect other 4 devices with shared IPs.

    Looking forward to hear from you!

It is not what I purchased .. it is ok on computer but not the same one on my cell phone. I went into settings in cell phone and did according to instructions
