Sprint 4G LTE Tri-Fi Hotspot Questions

(Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, didn't see one for data devices)

 

Couple of questions on this one:

  1. How do you 'really' perform a master reset? The sprint instructions here walk you through pressing the reset button and confirming with the power button, This does NOT clear the device SSID or administrator password. On the device webpage, there is an option to reset to factory, but it requires an SPC code. Any ideas?
  2. Using External Antennae other than the cradle. I'm looking for an alternative to the Sierra Wireless Tri-Fi Hotspot Desktop Cradle for an external antennae, I dont really need the ability to charge, and would like the ability to extend the antennae a couple of feet from the device. Can anyone advise of the connector type I'd need (its not in the device specs in the manual) and possibly recommend an antennae pair? I'm focused on improving 4G LTE signals.

 

 

Thanks!

That "SPC Code" is, iirc, the MSL. Contact Sprint technical support (888-211-4727, option 4, 4) or take it in to a repair center.

    • I wish carriers did spectrum swaps as often as they did in the past. Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile could easily swap and fix this issue. AT&T can take the entire PCS A-block giving them a contiguous 15MHz as opposed to the split 10+5 they currently have, Verizon could take both the D and B block and keep the contiguous 20MHz they have now, and T-Mobile could take over the E,F, and C block which would give them a contiguous 30MHz with the G-block. I wouldn't be surprised if Verizon is the only holdout in this because this swap would benefit AT&T and T-Mobile but would leave them in a net neutral position as their 20MHz of PCS is already contiguous.
    • They have the intention, as the equipment they're deploying supports n26. The transaction has not yet happened, T-Mobile is still in control and using the spectrum on some Sprint keep sites.
    • Did they declare their intention to buy band 26 from T-Mobile. I know that they have the option to buy it but do they have the money or the intention to buy it? Are they leasing it right now?
    • Just cycled through here and there's a Sprint Keep Site within range with 25+26+41. 25 is still 10x10, while 41 is the same 10 MHz at the top of the band that I saw at the airport on Friday night. Speeds aren't great, but signal isn't bad, so my guess is that they turned up the power on the site vs. where it was before (B26 is -101 RSRP and I know the site nearest me is gone). Will be downtown for fireworks tonight, so will see how networks perform. I have mmW-enabled VZW and AT&T SIMs to play with.
    • I believe they have made a few attempts, but I don't think there has been a large scale effort so far.
