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've seen n41 in rural-ish areas already, plus some B41 on sites that were 25/26 only a year ago. They seem to be getting better about not just deploying a single band in places, though from what I've seen the more rural setup appears to be whatever B/n71 they have, plus a 5x5 B2 carrier to use as an NR anchor. Narrower bandwidths go further, hence running 5x5 when they definitely have the spectrum for more.
    • So, my home connection has changed, and NOT for the better. I can hope this represents some temporary status during a changeover . . . Update: back on Sprint B26 with download of 15Mbps
    • Figures, I check every day to see if the LG V60 has an update and the one day I didn't an update is issued. Lol  Thanks, updating now. Will check signalcheckpro to see if any info is missing on my end.    
    • The unusual factor is the Band 41 holdings in the primary county for each of the 3 New York cities.  T-Mobile effectively owns all Band 41 in Albany, where they are also getting 60Mhz of n77.  Where as in the n77 20Mhz markets for Rochester and Syracuse, Krisar, Inc. - George W. Bott fragments the n41 spectrum.  In Rochester they could do 100Mhz and 40Mhz.  Syracuse is 60Mhz plus 20Mhz and 20Mhz.
    • Hmm that looks like NSA 5G with LTE information missing, since there is no 5G cell identity info.. but who knows. Send a diagnostic and I'll see if it's hiding anything good behind the scenes!
