Interesting acquisition announced today....Blackberry to acquire Good Technologies. For those of you who don't know or are familiar with Good, it's basically a BYOD platform for enterprises. (Email, intranet, etc.) Not necessarily directly Sprint related, but many people use both.
I've seen some threads recently about the differences between SIM/UICCs and though posting a compatibility matrix would help people.
This is pretty straightforward. The matrix has every Sprint LTE device, and what UICC card is meant for that device. Mix and matching UICC card types probably will not work, but swapping around UICC cards for devices that use the same type of card should work properly.
Keep in mind, you cannot simply move your UICC card to another phone to use it. Sprint's device authentication system still requires the correct UICC and MEID to be on the account to authenticate properly and work.
So I called Sprint, and they sent me a new Airave. The GPS light is now solid without issue, but still flashing LTE. It has been doing it for over 24 hours. Just tried a power cycle, will try a hard reset next to see if that helps, but then I guess its back to tech support for thoughts and ideas.
In my search for a stronger signal for my HTC 5G hub, I was encouraged by this photo which shows two wires coming out of the back of the HTC 5G hub (photo 6 of 8 of the slide deck):
So I removed the SIM drawer, then pried off the back cover. The back cover comes off easily except down near the ethernet connector -- there I had to use some force to get the cover off.
I was expecting to find a circuit board and perhaps some antenna connectors, but instead there is a fan and a cover. That cover appears to be held in-place with jeweler's Torx screws. My regular (slotted) and Allen jewelers drivers were either too large or too small, so I ordered a jeweler's Torx set from Amazon.
More news to follow...
PS I would upload a photo, but it appears that I've used up my photo allotment here and it says that my Max total size is 0.03MB...
