Looky what just arrived 

Done.

Guys, experimentation for the sake of knowledge is fine.  Heck, we encourage it.  But my spidey sense is tingling here.   At least one of you is probably trying to get "unlimited" LTE data on a tri

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.

strange mine was cancelled

 

Do you mean it didn't pass validation for you or something? I just ordered two more, waiting to see if they go through or not.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to contact you to let you know that we are unable to complete the processing of your new MiFi 500 LTE by Novatel Wireless. We have cancelled this device and any accessories that you ordered with it. We are also releasing any funds authorized on your credit card for this device.

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?)

    • I agree. I think AT&T site SB25 at Oksams corner would be a much better fit. 
    • Anyone in central PA region/Shentel land on this phone that can speak to recent behavior?  Considering upgrading this this or possibly the LG V60 5G otherwise and moving my wife to my G8X, but trying to get opinion/feedback on it.  If you chime in, state whether you're still pure legacy Sprint vs say TNX mode as well please for clarity.
    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
