I recently ordered the CradlepointPHS300S personal wifi hotspot and I CANNOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS DEVICE. The battery life on it is outstanding and it even charges your phone while connected! The broadband speeds are impressive.
PLEASE NOTE!!! You must go to sprint.com/downloads and download the firmware upgrade for the device for it to be compatible with most phones. It took me a while to figure out how to do it successfuly but that was no biggie.
No I do not work for Sprint or Cradlepoint lol I just cant stress how much I love it!

Agreed - that's a neat device.
Do watch how much you use it / how much others use it to avoid hitting the 5 gig cap.
I have the Cradlepoint PHS300 and a Sprint phone that is supposed to work, but when I connect it I get error 67. What am I doing wrong?
Error 67 usually means that you will need to update your data profile. You may do this by going into your settings and then go to data and choose to update. I would be glad to give you specific directions for you phone if you would provide a phone model.
To updated the data profile on your phone go to Menu>Settings>More>Select Data> Select Update Data Profile. The phone will display 'Updating Vision Profile, Please wait. Press End to cancel.' while this is in progress. After that is completed you will then have to power off and on your phone. Then your should be able to use data.
Hope that helps...
I've had mine for a few days now and LOVE IT! It took all of 20 seconds to set it up initially. Now I can carry my laptop around the house and not have to worry about being careful not to smack my USB modem (Sierra 597)on anything. It's already had an "outing". I took it to my daughter's soccer game and used it with my iPod touch.
