Those Airaves, who knows what ISPs they have been with. Virgin Mobile phones have to maintain their purity.   AJ

Yes I had this problem and I eventually found the answer! Turn OFF, or put on Airplane mode, your old phone and the texting issues go away! I had my new EVO LTE for a day when I realized when I was at home I was not getting any messages all day!? Then I did testing trying to figure out what was wrong. Finally I turned off my old OG EVO, which is what I used before, and immediately I received 20+ messages, some of which were from early in the morning and it was already 12 plus hours from then! I turned my OG EVO back on again and tested some messages to friends and no go. So, at least in my house, turning off my old phone which was connected to my Airave fixed the issue. After more tests I found that Airplane mode works too, as I still use my old EVO as a music player and remote control for my home devices. I have the 3G Airave BTW and I also reset my device and that didn't fix anything.

Reprogram the old EVO and remove your phone number and such. I remember one time when I moved to a new phone the old one kept getting texts and VM notifications. That was several years ago though.

So you guys have no problems with text messaging on Airave's? I have heard a lot of people really like the Airave, but I have also heard that some have trouble with text messages. Whats ya'lls experience been? Thx.

Sometimes the unit needs to be rebooted so calls and texts, but overall love it!

you guys need some glow sticks or sumfin to make the air raves work

 

Funny pun. My airave works fine for me, no real problems with texting, though my brother has a Boost mobile phone and it won't let him make a call while it is plugged in, so I have to unplug it when he comes over... If anyone has knowledge of how to fix that problem, I would appreciate it.

I used to have serious trouble with two different Airave's one two different accounts and they both had serious text messaging problems. If you had a message coming in or going out at the same time the Airave would freak out and it wouldn't let communicate correctly with your phone so you would end up sending 20+ (yes 20+ sometimes more but on average 8) messages a time. And this wouldn't just be once a night as it might happen 5 or 6 times depending on how popular, or psychotic, you are, lol. My friends actually got mad at me and I disconnected both of them for a week but that makes my signals stay at 100+! I think they pushed a fix as I haven't had the issue in a while and I haven't had it happen at all on my EVO LTE yet *crosses fingers*!

 

Josh, you can add phone numbers to the approved numbers list for your Airave on Sprint.com. I sent mine to just allow my phone and my neighbors but I know this causes a huge problem with callers who have other phones on my network near me but I don't care. The bandwidth supporting the Airave is mine that I pay for so I'm not letting John Smith download kiddie porn on my connection and get me in trouble. I would rather just have a signal booster as I don't like the idea of it using my internet. What the heck am I paying for again? Also I've had many issues with the Airave having dead air and when I would go to make a call it would make the double beep and then just sit there with no sound. Other times I get a message that says the call can't be completed. The GPS light always goes off and then I can't leave my house on a call with out it disconnecting and yes I have the GPS cable connected directly to my window glass and the Airave is right next to a huge window! To tell you the truth it is a piece of crap and I wouldn't have it unless it was free like it is and I couldn't get a signal in my house. Before I got the Airave I would always get voice-mail notifications of missed calls and late text messages. Now I just send 20+ messages to everyone, lol. But a signal is worth it.

 

I have the Airave 3G and I have two of them on two different internet connections attached to two different account and both have the exact same issues to the "T"! A signal booster would be better if you can afford it as you'll have much less problems in the long run.

Thanks, I will look into adding his number.

Also, I knew that there would be a problem loosing calls when you exit the airave service area and enter the normal signal, that was made clear to me when I got it. But when you have a large brick house that is built like a bomb shelter (only a slight exaggeration, lol) with radiant heat in all the floors (metal everywhere) and live out in the country... it was either get the airave or drop calls, lol.

See that is just the thing though, you shouldn't! You should be able to transition from the Airave signal area to a Sprint cell tower without issue. EG: You're getting ready for work and you have to make a call but you don't finish the call and are forced to take the call on the road your Airave should transfer the call automatically to the nearest tower. That is one of the main features and selling points of the Airave. Mine will make the transfer most of the time unless GPS is off and then it freaks out. I don't know who told you this couldn't be done but they are wrong. Now the Airave can't be transferred to if say the opposite were true. EG: Coming home on the phone and you walk into the house the call will not transfer to the Airave as it doesn't have that capability.

 

Also if you want to manage your Airave and set allowed numbers and service coverage area (three area types, small 2000 sq ft Go to Sprint.com > Login > My Preferences (Tab) > Go to "I want to..." on the right "Manage my AIRAVE" > Then change "Range" settings & "Users". Ranges are as follows (according to Airave rep) "Airave Sml Rng Provision Ph2" is supposedly 2-3k SQ FT "Airave Med Rng Provision Ph2" is 4-6k SQ FT and "Airave Lrg Rng Provision Ph2" is 7-8k+ SQ FT!

 

Good luck,

OK guys ? my phone (EVO LTE) makes a beep noise when im using my airave when i'm on a call. during a call when the screen goes off it beeps i can't hear it but the other person can it is the #0 that beeps. i found out by calling my voice mail and waving my hand over the phone to have it beep a couple of times and the VM lady saying your password is not 0000. this is my second EVO LTE phone and both did it. so do you think it is a glitch on the phone or airave and one other thing i can make it stop by changing the skin on my phone. but that only works for a day then i have to change my skin again. any ideas?

is it just one beep? I thought it "beeped" once if you were connected to the airave.. like a confirmation or something. At least I thought thats what I read somewhere. :confused:

      I'm stuck having to use an Airave in my apartment because ever since my landlord moved in downstairs and did major renovations, we've not been able to get much if any Sprint signal up here. I hate it because it's 3G only. Is there any chance Sprint will get it together and offer an LTE Airave? I'm guessing not, but it would be cool if they did.

      Hey all cant find anything searching the Forums. So I am wondering if someone can help me out here.
       
      I currently have a Belkin N750 DB Wifi Dual Band N+ Gigabit Router and an Airave unit. Both units are right next to each other.
       
      My home is about 1500sf ft.
       
      Using both bands on the router; 2.5ghz and 5ghz.
       
      Since PCS is at 1900 I am correct to assume this is close to 2.5gbs aka 2500?
       
      During they day my wireless signal drops to just about nothing that is usable by my TIVO, Note2, Sony 3100 BluRay Player or Wii etc etc etc.
       
      How likelly is it that the 2 units are severely interfering with each other?
       
      What distance should I place one from the other?
       
      Thanks for the feedback.

      Hello all, I have a question about my sprint airave. The closest tower to my house is approximately 4 miles away if I'm correct. So what I'm wondering is when this tower is eventually upgraded to 4G, will my phone be able to connect to it? Or will my airave being a stronger signal override the 4G signal?
      Side question: are 4G signals stronger or weaker than 3G signals necessarily? Thanks for any insight you guys can supply

      So as we all know Sprint offers the Airave devices to help in-home coverage issues. It requires a high-speed Internet connection and creates a miniature cell site inside your home (femtocell).
       
      Sprint has offered these for free or deeply discounted for quite a while to customers with little to no coverage in their home. The requirements for determining eligibility have changed according to what I've heard. There hasn't been an official communication to retail employees as we don't deal with Airaves directly, so do take it with a grain of salt, and remember it can change again at any time.
       
      This information comes from a conversation with a member on the Airave team that determines customer eligibility to assist our store in providing accurate information to our customers that we refer to their team for coverage issues.
       


      To be eligible for a FREE Airave, the account must have 4+ active lines.
       
      Otherwise, the account is eligible for purchasing the Airave at full retail price ($280), or with a 2-year contract commitment for a discounted price ($130).
       

      My assumption is that since Network Vision is ramping up to full speed and should be completed within the next year or so, the increase in coverage availability from the 800MHz deployment and enhanced capability of the new equipment in general is anticipated to remove the need for Airave devices for most customers.

    • Columbus Sprint conversion site to T-Mobile update: tower hands arrived before sunset and unloaded. Said Sprint stuff will be demoed first, but Microwave and b25 will remain. Will only be adding AWS. Said no n41, 600 or 700.  So I took pictures of antennas but not a big pile under tarp. Personally think they are not allowed to admit and 5g equipment. Lots of wackos out there. Checking on the visible antennas, there are three Nokia VBNAEHC-01, which are AirScale MAA 64T64R 192AE B41 320W AEHC (AAEHC) capable of 5g.  There will also be larger racks with plenty of room for them to stand on.
    • *#0011# - This code shows the status information of your GSM network such as registration status, GSM band, etc.;
    • Rather than upgrade all my lines from Magenta to Max I stayed on Magenta 2.0 and when I need UHD or more HotSpot I just add the $15/mo GoMax AddOn when I need it and remove it when I'm done. That costs me $15 for the month. Rather than taking the $30/mo hit permanently to upgrade the entire account (7 Lines/3 Paid). Since I'm paying for all the lines I don't care if any of the other ones have UHD etc. 🙃
    • Pretty incredible. Of course, I wonder what percentage of Magenta Max Plan users forget to activate (or don't activate) UHD streaming on their devices.
    • I couldn't stay away for long, gonna return the iPhone I told myself I wouldn't do this but iPhone just doesn't work for me, tried giving it a weekend but being back on my Ultra feels natural iPhone is slow and laggy lol oh well.
