Upgraded from three to four stars. It now works with my 4G LTE phone automatically. I discovered this when I forgot to make the change one day, and realized it had started working. Apparently Sprint's vendor has figured out how to make it work and has done the necessary code changes. Significantly better signal, and now I generally get the incoming calls. I won't give it five stars due to the amount of effort involved in getting it to work originally, but it does make a big difference in the connectivity and sound quality.
Upgraded from one to three stars.
After many hours of level 1 and 2 tech support, this thing does work after a fashion. It will not work with a 4G LTE phone automatically. In order to make it function, each time I am where I'm using the Airave, I need to change the phone network setting to disable roaming and use CDMA only. Otherwise, the device will not connect with my phone. When I go back into the outside world, I need to remember to change these settings in order to get back on a 4G LTE network. It's a nuisance at best. I was initially advised that a software fix was coming, but based on my last contact with Sprint there is apparently no date given and no status updates available. The rep assumed that it was likely a project with no priority.
That being said, when these changes are made it does make for a marked increase in call quality, and I'm not missing all of my inbound calls anymore.
I have bad Sprint coverage where I live. In cases like mine Sprint will give you one of these.
I installed mine without a hitch and it worked the first day. The next day it wouldn't connect with my Samsung Galaxy S4.Read more ›
My Sprint AIRAVE 2.5+ was very easy to setup. I turned all of my routers, plugged in the AIRAVE as per instructions, then turned the power back onto all of my devices. After I got all green lights (after 3 minutes!, instructions state up to 2 hours), I reset my phone. Full 6 bars!!! I live next to an airport, I'm lucky if I get 1 bar in my house.
Does not support 4G
Documentation does not provide information about its connectivity requirements. If you have a DSL connection that has a built-in router with a firewall, it's up to you to figure out what security settings this device needs to have opened up. Alternatively, this means turning off the router's firewall altogether.
GPS requirement can be problematic. I sometimes use this device in an urban location where the nearest window is facing another building and therefore prevents getting a good GPS signal. It would be nice if this device had some workarounds for dealing with this issue. For example, the device could potentially connect via a high speed wireless AC or wireless N connection as an alternative to an wired connection via ethernet cable. This would allow it to be placed next to a window where it could get its gps signal more easily.
Also, if you're getting one to provide services for your home for renters, and don't have a sprint account, forget it... Sprint will give you all sorts of !@#$ for thinking you can just have one of their repeaters in your house without a live cell account. (Get your renter to pre-agree with using their account for your setup and prepare to be entangled with this.) Also if you tell them you're hosting for someone not yourself, so they don't charge for the operation of the unit otherwise it's x$ ammount / year for taxes, let your renter know there will be some fees though, but not through you, through sprint directly to their cell bill, fortunately they are not large fees. (Which is not fun, because you're just trying to make sure their customers have coverage in a particular area where there is already coverage, but for some reason, their customer can't get a signal.) Also make sure you're in an approved area, or you'll have to... Don't worry about it, just check this with sprint ahead of time.Read more ›
