In order to maximize our cellular coverage, Flash uses 3G and LTE wireless technology to send you battery status and security alerts, and to track GPS location in the case of theft.
We use T-Mobile for Flash's wireless coverage in the United States. Please refer to T-Mobile's coverage map to check coverage in your area. The bike's operation does not require a cellular connection. All lighting and electric motor features will operate normally when outside of cellular coverage. However, remote check-in on bike status and GPS location services will not be available without a current cellular connection.
You don't need to do anything to set up a wireless connection. Flash arrives connected and ready to go, and it is completely separate from your own personal wireless account. You don't ever have to deal with it (or pay for it). Just get out and ride!
