    "Boosts data signals – get more bars" To the the average user...that is all inclusive. To my roomate...data signal is just that. So she is upset that this isn't helping her when se reads that Sprint says it should in their adverts. "Accelerates LTE data speeds from the nearest Sprint tower. Increases average upload and download speeds by more than 200 percent" Again....average user...don't know the difference in the "G" vs LTE. And it doesn't say "4G" in those promotions. Is there such a thing as 3G LTE? I don't think so...I keep trying to get her to switch..but $13 a month is all she is willing to pay and "it just works" I did read somewhere that Sprint has some other type of devices that hook up to your own network that supports the phone call signal (1x?) though I don't recall if those did anything for the CDMA 3G bands.

    Is Magic Box only 4G LTE? I have a roommate that uses Republic Wireless 2.0 with a Moto G 1st gen phone that uses Sprint 3G network for data...

    Ah. Thanks for that. Quite informative. 2nd gen had e-ink display....wish they had stuck with that. no need for a backlite to stay on. Glad i don't have to have this thing in a bedroom. its still kinda bright even when it dims.

  7. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Hello....I just got one of those Magic Box. model sku: ASPANMBGN2 Got some questions. I gather this in a "Gen 2" box. Does this have a built in UPS? (it will run on battery if power outage?) or do i need to get a normal UPS? if so, how many Watts does this device use under load? It came with a pathetic usb power bank to use for initial setup...but i didn't use it. I don't see a way that is used as a battery backup.
