This product works beautifully and gives me full cell phone reception in my house. I used to have almost every call drop and sometimes not be able to call out or send texts at all but now everything works!

First off, don't spend any money on this product. If you have signal issues and dropped calls at home, CALL SPRINT. They will send you whatever the latest version of this product they have for FREE. No monthly subscription or hidden fees. I probed the operator for almost an hour because Im very skeptical of "FREE". If you are a loyal customer being charged up the wa-hoo for cell phone service, they made this device to aid you. The only catch is you must have high speed broadband internet. Any DSL or Cable provider with their slowest package should work. If you've ever made an internet call using Skype or Google and had lag, this is different; It's one way traffic. The person on the other end doesn't need internet or anything. This is using your phone like normal, just with an added kick with the help of your cable modem.

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.

10/20/2014 Update:

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.

9/19/2014 Update:
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.

Original review:

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.

I had to update this review after a month with this device: It slows down your Internet speed of your other secondary devices that are connected to my WiFi (ie., my iPad, iPhone). This compelled me to downgrade it from 4 stars to 3. Unless you get a lot of calls, use it sparingly (during peak calling hours).

Got it for free a few days ago from Sprint due to weak signal from living close to International border. You call and ask if you qualify for free. They will ask for your address and check the distance to the nearest tower. They told me it had to more than 10 miles from the tower, but I still qualified due to living a mile from the border.

Now, how it works. I didnt want to connect all my Ethernet wires through the Airave, I called SPRINT to help me; So, its just the yellow cable going to my router, that's it; you remove the GPS antenna, which is slotted to the Airave through the back, and use the black wire to connect it to the GPS and back of unit where the GPS antenna was slotted. You place the GPS antenna on the window sill (no Cardinal Direction needed). It can take up to 2 hrs for it to find and keep a signal. Mine took about 15 mins (I have Time Warner on a 30G plan).

The Airave will then do a firmware update and then when it reboots; all lights are suppose to light up solid green. The tech told this part would take some time, so we hanged up; well, I waited 3 hrs and the "Mobile" light kept blinking red. It was late, so I turned it off and would try again the next day.

The next day I turned it on and the "Mobile" light kept blinking red. I called tech support who told they would reset the unit themselves. They asked I diconnect the power. They reset it, and we waited about 10 mins and it didn't work.

The seller sent me a DOA unit but, refunded me without issue so I am happy about that but, let's talk about the SPRINT AIRAVE.
I love it. Before I wouldn't make calls at my place because I'd have like negative bars (I live up a hill).
I'm tech-savvy so this was easy to setup and WOW. I got like 17,000 bars now. Well, 5 but, I can talk all day at home now.
WOOHOO!
