Which one of all sprint hotspot devices have the most lte bands + the most battery life? TIA

 

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.

    • 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.
