Will the hotspot work everywhere?
No, it will only work where Sprint has data coverage. If you plan on taking the hotspot with you on a trip, you will definitely want to check Sprint’s data coverage map. Enter your zip code (or the zip code where you will be) and click on Map it, then click on the Data tab just above the map. Also, when it comes to having a good connection to the internet, consider the hotspot to be like a cell phone. If there’s a location at home or in an office building where you don’t have a strong enough signal to make a call on a cell phone, then chances are the hotspot won’t work in that location either.

How many devices can connect to the hotspot?
A maximum of 5 (five) devices can be connected at once.

Who do I contact if I have questions or a problem with the hotspot?
