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.

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.

    • Edit: Disregard, what I previously posted here was a previously starred bug.  
    • This convert site is funny to me. T-Mobile reserved a pole at this same intersection for a small cell in Dec 2017, finally installed it in July 2020, only for the small cell to be planned for decommissioning a little less than 1 and a half years later thanks to a convert site. It looks like the roof was rebuilt/re-enforced for the new setup too. The roof line is a little higher at the front of the building with new bricks.
    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
