Sierra 250U Issues


Sierra 250U Issues

When I upgraded quite some time ago, I thought going from the old USB device to this one would be a better unit. Since I have had, I have tried for quite some time to deal with the dropping of the EDVO connection immediately or within a few minutes and dealing ith the slow XRTT (or whatever it is) connection, followed by the constant dropping of signal and then the best is, when in an area showing a 4G signal I try to connect to it and it gives me the I need a subscription and or day pass to connect. Uh hello! I pay you for unlimited 3G and 4G on my plan. To be honest I feel very cheated with service and since I am locked into my contract a bit longer I have to deal with this device being a pain in the ass. Anyone have any ideas on what to do with this thing? Before you ask, I run 64 bit Vista on an ASUS machine, all updates with your company and windows are done on a regular basis. The smartview logon is slow or locks up fairly often also. Looking for a possible solution other than leaving Sprint. Any help would b great. Thank you.

First it sounds like someone did not update your plan to the correct coded one, that would cause the day pass error.  If you are in a 3G area I would try to build a manual dial up networking connection using #777 as the phone number. You don't need a username/password as long as the card is already provisioned.  I have seen several issues with this card and 64 bit systems - the manual dun will only work with 3G.  If you contact technical support they need to be sure you have a 3G/4G rate plan.

If you send me a private message I will be glad to contact you.
