it is definitely free... I ordered one and I will have to wait and see if it ships. 

 

Yup same, could be a fluke, but if not, bonus.

I'm thinking about ordering another one... my order says it passed validation and is in the process of shipping. 

 

If they really want to give things away for free, we might as well take them all and hand them out to S4GRU users!  :lol:

 

Edit: Mine just passed validation too.

My order was just marked as shipped. You can still do this by selecting Sprint, then choosing replacement device, and selecting the mifi.

Interesting. If I were to order one of those free MiFis from that link, would I be able to activate without having to sign up for a new two year agreement?

If adding a line, yes. I can get away with it because I have an extra line on my account, so it'll just go on my existing line and keep counting down my contract.

Lucky duck.  That link that was posted didn't work. It sends me to a Galaxy S3 product page for Verizon wireless.

Change carrier, choose "replacement device" and then change phone to the MiFi 500. I was able to put in an order for the free MiFi just now. (Whether it'll get cancelled though is another question.)

I had two in my cart, but took one out because I felt pretty bad. I'm waiting to be validated now (but aren't we all?)

    • The S21U was very spotty with connecting to 6E. It would only see it on a router reboot. I thought it was more the router than the S21U, however my laptop would solidly connect to the 6E network, so it must have been the S21U. Since I'm on WiFi7 with the S24U, I haven't kept track of it. I will flip over and check it out later. 
    • Wi-fi 6e missing (6 GHz on one of two ultras). Perhaps coming from an app?  Wifi analyzer can see the 6ghz, just can't see them to connect.  May try wifi reset, although communications reset could have been the source of this problem.  Others have reported it, so not an isolated issue. Edit: Fixed: Rebooted into safe mode. Wifi 6e worked. Normal boot back. No wifi 6e in available nerworks.  Unistalled Asus Router app. Checked for Wifi 6e being visible in wifi available networks. Nothing. Deleted Netgear Genie app. Then saw networks. of mine I had not connected to in wifi available networks. Forgot the desired 2.4&5&6 SSID that did not show 6E. Connected to it again. 6e now works.
    • I noticed today while I was out and about in Louisville that b30 has been widened back to 10x10. They reduced it to 5x5 back in Sept 2018 presumably due to satellite radio interference. Not sure how long ago the change happened but it couldn't have been too terribly long ago. I noticed the different earfcn in the neighbor list, I don't usually see b30 as pcc much but I wonder if that will change now. I locked my phone to b30 only on my drive home from work and noticed the new(old?) earfcn on every site, so it wasn't just a 1 or 2 site fluke. It also looks like they've been doing some fiber or other cabling work around the b2/b46 small cell nodes, I wonder if they are about to start adding c-band radios to those. 
    • Should trade it for some low-band there or elsewhere. AT&T dominates lowband.    
    • I checked existing spectrum holdings and selling 5x5 PCS to each of VZW and AT&T in Kauai would get them to 20x20 apiece there, which should make them happy. In Maui it makes more sense to sell 5x5 each of PCS and AWS to get VZW 20x20 AWS and AT&T 15x15 PCS. I figure it would be a sale rather than a swap, as neither of the other two have spectrum T-Mobile would want that's high-frequency enough to avoid the spectrum screen. Honestly, T-Mobile is strong enough in Hawaii from a capacity perspective that cutting down PCS/AWS holdings won't hurt, particularly in exchange for finally unlocking 2.5 (though in Maui I saw 140 MHz n41 regularly in September if I remember correctly).
