That I cannot say.

You may try to reactivate the plan with a different device IMEI and limit your data usage to under 500GB, and/or activate a second line and swap the two out every two weeks.

Sprint works well with the EM7565 if you can get Band 41 at your location, since it does not have Band 25

Glad you got it up and running.

The easiest way to program a band or group of bands is using this Spreadsheet.

Re: Raspberry Pi3+ | EM7565 Error

It sounds like a power issue, or lack thereof, going to the modem.

The errors are no concern, they are just not compatible with that particular modem.

Re: Need Help with EM20-G

The USB to M.2 adapter is only used to flash the modem firmware behind a PC.

Thereafter, reinstall the modem in the router.

There should be no other configurations necessary. Just follow the steps in my post.

Re: New WE826-T some observations and questions

How about bandwidth monitoring, anyone using that? The bandwidth monitoring is not working because the new directly to hold the bandwidth logs is not being created in the latest build.

Re: Need Help with EM20-G

If it were me, I would start over. I would first remove the EM20-G and install in the USB to M.2 adapter and downgrade the firmware per this TUTORIAL . Next, and while the modem is removed, I would use the Firmware RECOVERY Method and install the latest WiFiX firmware for the WG3526. Once installed,...

Re: Super Slow

Went to The Wireless Haven links provided by BillA and found that they do not accept payments in Virginia. Capture.PNG Is there another source or has anyone had similar issues? I plan to wait until Monday when they open to see if they can take my order over the phone. We have several notices on the...

EM20-G Downgrading the firmware

OpenWRT based firmware does not support the EM20-G other than MBIM with no AT COM port. Therefore, a patch must be used to communicate with the modem. The drivers for the modems like Option, QMI, MBIM, etc are "kmod" packages which means they are included in the compiled kernel of OpenWrt....

Since changing the IMEI of a device is unlawful in some countries, it is a subject that is not allowed to be discussed on this forum.

Re: Using Sprint x.ispsn on WE826 Go

Well, guess there is no answer why part of menu is missing in GO model. Time to shelf this project and move on to greener pastures. As they say in my neck of the woods, "got bigger fish to fry". Might try one of the previous builds, or a stock GoldenOrb build, or inquire over at the Whirl...
