Sprint Phone Connect 3, anyone using it?

Recommended Posts

So my parents want to save some money on their land line. I found out Sprint has released a new version of the phone connect recently and we're probably going to get one. I've heard the previous models had issues. Has anyone tried this new one yet? Any issues?

edit: I didn't know what section to post this in, I figured hotspots and modems was the closest.

Maybe I should have put this in general. The hotspot forum probably sees very little traffic.

Actually, I think we were putting the SPC devices in the Misc section of the Smartphone subforum.

Interesting that it has 3G data. So I guess it's a hotspot too? Wonder if they offer a special plan for that.

As far as I know, there is no hotspot function enabled. I'm not sure, but I think it uses a VoIP like codec on EVDO for voice.

Oh interesting. So not 1x? Wonder if it does HD voice? I thought it was interesting that there was a 3G icon and description on the product page

Sprint Phone Connect 2 was EVDO too.

Well, I got it. We'll see how well it works. They told me it had "HD Voice" at the store. I'm excited to try it out. I'm waiting for my land line number to port out.

A 4g hotspot and a home phone replacement would be intriguing device....

I believe AT&T has such a thing. They called it "wireless internet & phone" accordingly.

Well, I guess someone else thought of it first. Either way it would be nice offering (in my mind anyway) to have something like that in Sprint's lineup.

They are halfway there with the Netgear router. Maybe they will add phone connect to the next one, and support for PBX and/or VoIP phone service for businesses too.

    • Going through the full list of shortcuts on my S20 Ultra: Battery Info - "Battery info isn't available on this device." Data/EPST - "Data/EPST info may not be available on this device." Debug/Engineering - "Debug/Engineering screens may not be available on this device." Mobile Networks - "Mobile Network settings not available on this device." Radio Info - Does work. Samsung Band Test1 - Does work. Samsung Band Test2 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Band Test3 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Band Test4 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Band Test5 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Band Test6 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Band Test7 - "Band selector not available on this device." Samsung Hidden Menu - ""Hidden Menu: Permission Denied" Voice Band Menu - Does work. WiFi Info - "WiFi info not available on this device." I know the ##33284# was unique to Sprint branded phones in my experience, the dialer code for the Service Mode screen on Samsung is *#0011#, not sure if you want to point the Samsung shortcut to that instead now. *#0011# works on most Samsung phones, the exception being some Verizon versions.  On another note, the accent color is working on both my phones on the newest update. I've also noticed the stale 5G info does seem to clear after awhile, but I'm not sure how long that takes. An airplane mode cycle also clears it. 
    • According Sprints loyalty dept the LG V60 will be out on June 12th.
    • Both prior accent issues now solved! Thanks Nice feature.
    • With the new update Samsung Band Test1 brings up "NETWORK" menu(?).  I can get into the Band Selection by clicking the menu button in the top left. I have never used Band Selection menu before but that is what it says in the top center. I saw there were 7 different options I just figured I would let you know which seemed to work for me. No 5G in my area so I can't really test that part of the beta.
