Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hot Spot review: Sprint Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hot Spot


Introduced at CES 2010 , the Sprint Overdrive is a mobile wireless router much like the MiFi , except that it's capable of both 3G and 4G speeds. It works on Sprint's WiMax network and allows you to connect up to five devices at a time. The only...

The Sprint Overdrive offers 4G speeds, GPS support, and shared storage. Its Web client is easy to use.

Sprint's 4G coverage is limited at this time. The Overdrive is a bit bulky and has short battery life.

For road warriors, the Sprint Overdrive mobile hot spot offers reliable and fast 4G speeds, provided you live in a coverage area. If not, it does 3G, too; we just wish it had a longer battery life.

Consumer review by: RANTG1 (

"Failed design- year of multiple warranty replacements."


Have been fighting Sprint for a year now regarding this device. Surprised they were not just safety recalled due to the overheating battery issue.

Works well when it sits on a ice pack and stays plugged into A/C power. Must override settings that allow it to switch between 3G and 4G to keep a 4G connection.

Overheats. Disconnects when too hot. Battery life under an hour if not plugged in. Battery life about 2 1/2 hours when plugged into computer USB port. Disconnects and reconnects between 3G and 4G several times an hour.
