While the Karma probably isn't what you're looking for, I'd say that. But take a look at the Boost Mobile hotspot as well, the 10GB plan is cheaper than Sprint. But it looks like you may have that already.

 

If you have to go directly through Sprint, your only option is the R850 hotspot they have. The Pocket-Wifi they carry is out of stock and I like that the R850 has a removable battery.

Except the R850 is LTE only, and the Pocket Wifi, which might still be easily purchased in a store, has 3G. The Alcatel ONETOUCH Ride-FI is a nice new addition, has 3G connectivity, and I'm sure there is an adapter out there to be able to plug it in to a wall outlet.

I am intrigued by the Ride-Fi too.. I have seen dual wall/car chargers that had 12v "cigarette lighter" power ports in them, but not recently. I've got a big Black and Decker 12v brick I bought for my portable electric cooler I could use.. Haha what a kludge that would look like! :)

Sprint website list the Pocket wifi as having lte advance(plus?) and the netgear fuse doesn't. Will I get better speeds in houston tx using a pocket wifi instead of a netgear fuse?

LTE Plus can mean single carrier Band 41, but the Pocket WiFi does not have carrier aggregation.

I have a 12v brick for my portable electric cooler too. I just don't know where it is though. On another note, the Netgear Zing was brought back from the dead, and it was a good hotspot, so that is another option.

It really depends on the built in antennas, but I haven't tested any of them so I can't tell you for sure.

    • 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.
    • Band 5 LTE is being shut down to deploy NR in the CLR block. AT&T doesn't have free spectrum anywhere else.
