Re: Cricket Simply Data Plan with LTE Router

thank you for your reply -- can you recommend an unlocked phone that isn't expensive? thank you Well, you could buy a cheap unlocked phone on Ebay or Amazon, or save some money by calling your carrier and request a free unlock for your own phone (as long as you've been a customer for at least 6 mon...

Re: Cricket Simply Data Plan with LTE Router

Greetings, I had this setup working previously, but lately I can't get connected to cricket, and after reading above posts, I re-checked my EC25AF and now cricket says is not compatible?? How I can tell if the issue is cricket, or some software or hardware problem on my end? The usb enclosure and m...

Re: AT&T Unlimited for Tablet Plan Question

Thanks Bill. I appreciate your efforts with all this info. This is the key thing I'm missing. I didn't realize that I could create new profile and set the APN. I thought that when tethering is used, the tablet somehow ignores APN settings and gets a APN from the SIM that can't be changed by any use...

Re: Anyway to pull in this band?

Ah, I see. Thanks for clarifying that. Sorry to add confusion. I think some of the phone spec websites do not give accurate info on the cellular band capabilities of the device. No problem, here's are a couple of sites which seems to have pretty accurate specs on all phones. SM-516U https://www.pho...

Re: AT&T Unlimited for Tablet Plan Question

Thanks, I'll certainly give it yet another go. I successfully use a TTL setting of 65 when I use the same hardware to tether a phone on Visible. That lets me use native tethering without EasyTether to avoid the 5 Mbps hotspot speed limit. I've had no luck doing the same with AT&T. Pretty much every...

Re: MC7455 and Visible by Verizon, Grammie help!

Does the simplemobile carrier you posted earlier have the same latency issues as visible does using Verizon? SimpleMobile uses Tmobile towers with truly unlimited data for only $50/month. I've been using around 500gigs/months for the past 5 years, and seen others go over 1,000gigs (that's 1 TeraByt...

Re: Anyway to pull in this band?

I don't think the Samsung A51 or the A71 pick up low band 5G. I was thinking about doing the same thing, but will probably look to a phone that picks up both the low and mid band. Just something to consider for people who are more rural, like myself. As I mentioned previously, there are two version...

Re: AT&T Unlimited for Tablet Plan Question

You're misunderstanding what problem I'm solving with EasyTether. It's not general speed, video throttling or otherwise. I'm tethering to a tablet using USB on the AT&T $20 tablet plan. That plan has a hard throttle on all hotspot traffic to 128 kbps after 10 GB. It didn't do this until a couple of...

Re: AT&T Unlimited for Tablet Plan Question

That's basically what I'm doing with a Raspberry Pi ( https://databurst.medium.com/running-easytether-and-wireguard-on-a-raspberry-pi-4-3804a2bc9447 ). That worked well for me with an Android phone on AT&T. I'm not running EasyTether my laptop or other LAN devices. That link gives instructions to c...

Re: Anyway to pull in this band?

@BillA Sorry old post, but any cost effective Android phone/router combo you recommend? Currently only have iPhones in my household, along with a nighthawk M1 Pretty much any Android will work fine, as long as it has USB Tether option in settings. I use a Samsung S9 with great results of around 200...
