    Airave works as billed, February 15, 2010

    This review is from: Sprint Airave

    This product works as billed. Had one in service for about a year. Incredible signal in the defined area in a building where tower coverage was / is a problem. Could not be happier with the product and an added benefit is that the minutes that you use when talking via the Airave do not accumulate as min. used on your cell plan.

    When you make or receive a call that comes via the Airave and you move out of range, if you are in range of a traditional tower you move to the external tower flawlessly. One thing to note is that if you are out of range and are on a call and come into range of the Airave you will not move to the device. Not a big deal but you should know this.

    Airave V2 is a great solution, September 3, 2010

    This review is from: Sprint Airave

    I have the Airave V2, not the Airave V1 which this is.

    I tried a cell phone repeater, and failed. After that, I talked to sprint and ordered my Airave V2. I can’t say enough good things about this device. I now get full, 3g service in my entire house. The setup was very easy, although slow. The device took nearly 2Hours to configure the Mobile portion of its setup process. I didn’t have to be present for any of that, but it was ruff waiting for it to finish. Once it finished, I’ve been nothing but smiles.

    Also, you can configure the device to run as a DMZ host on your router, and have it sit behind your router, not in front of it. The device seems to work perfectly in this configuration. The Airave V2 says you need 5k up and down to work right, sprint says its somewhere closer to 40k up and down. I strongly recommend you believe sprint. I have well over 40k a second, and the voice quality is perfect.

    Great great product.

    This review is from: Sprint Airave

    First the caveat: Order this product ONLY if you need better phone coverage at home and have DSL internet from your cable or phone company. This box will only work to amp up your phone coverage by using your internet connection.

    My story: After 3 weeks of waiting for Sprint to ship me a “free” Airave, I gave up and ordered one through Amazon. As it worked out, this was a good move since I was able to get it fast (thanks Mr. Reseller!) and contact Sprint Tech Support.

    This is the important part: the Airave box was about a year old and the Sprint Tech Support number on the label was incorrect. If you are a Sprint customer, just call *2 on your mobile phone and get to tech support on a free call. You may want to plug your phone into the power cord as it took the tech about 20 minutes to provision the Airave box.

    Another tip: Call Sprint first, tell them that you are only getting “1 Bar” coverage in your home and that you were told by a tech person that Sprint offers the Airave for free. This is true as it is what I was told. The catch is that you may not get the box. The good news is if you wait two weeks, buy the Airave, then call SPrint, they will have a record of your call and set it up over the phone – without charge!
