Upcoming Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot User Guide Spotted, Noted As First Android Based Unit

T-Mobile’s upcoming Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot Pro has been outed for a second time thanks to a leaked user guide. That’s not all our source was able to extract from his poking around on T-Mobile’s website…a release date set for October 16th. Pricing remains an unknown but Mobile HotSpot devices have never been known to tip the scales in the price arena. The most notable part of the user guide and related T-Mobile support page alerted us that this device is listed as the first “Android based” Mobile HotSpot. Whether or not T-Mobile meant for their network or for HotSpots in general is something that remains to be seen. In fact, the very same page also states this is the “First Mobile HotSpot by Samsung,” again not specifying if that’s for T-Mobile or for the overall market.

With T-Mobile’s LTE network on the rise and their efforts to capture more of the B2B market heating up, a brand new Mobile HotSpot seems like a perfect addition to the company’s device lineup. Now let’s just see if the price matches earlier HotSpot devices on T-Mobile’s network.

Thanks Merik!

  • I need to do something, because my home internet sucks bad. Actually, there is no more ‘Clear’, because when I logged into my account, it says to contact sprint as they no longer have services on their own.

    • TheVorlon

      Are you saying that Sprint is no longer supporting your existing Clear account?

    • Paul

      If you have a good signal with Magenta, you can gett an Android phone, root it, and then have unlimited teather!!
      I have it working with my Note 2; so long as I don’t run torrents the system doesn’t give me any problems.

      Of course, that my solution to the problem. Contact Sprint and see what they say, and also check their coverage map.

      • thepanttherlady

        I’m tethering, unrooted with my Xperia Z1. :)

        • Paul

          I would expect nothing less from you, Madam.

          How does the unlock xperia z1 work on t mobile network? Planning on getting that. My little bro got the xperia z but it’s just a little outdated and the 20.3 mp camera from the z1 entices me.

        • thepanttherlady

          Works great and it runs on LTE if you’re in an area with it. The camera is definitely better than the XZ but can use some tweaks from Sony. Make sure you read up on some unbiased reviews to see if it’ll meet your expectations. :)

        • titan

          Could you confirm your Z1 model? I have been looking at getting the C6903 for the dual ability to use AT&T LTE bands.

        • thepanttherlady

          C6903. I’ve highlighted the difference in bands below so you’ll have to see what AT&T runs in your area for LTE if you haven’t already.

          LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 – C6903 Suggested for T-Mobile
          LTE 700 / 850 / 900/ 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 – C6906 Suggested for AT&T

        • titan

          I actually meant to type the C6906, and ask if you had C6903. T-Mo is 1700/2100 and AT&T uses 700, so the C6906 is compatible with both. Importing the C6906 is another story, though, since nobody carries it.

        • thepanttherlady

          I just Googled it and came across this site who is also in the U.S.


          I’ve never heard of this company but you can probably search to make sure everything is legit.

        • kyo251

          Thank you, just needed to know if it works great on tmobil. Since mobile, al has lte that’s even better. Getting it for the wife, since she is accident prone, dropping, water etc. lol

        • thepanttherlady

          Make sure you do some research before you spend almost $800 on this phone. It should survive whatever water accidents she may have but if she’s also drop prone….. :)

          I’ve only seen one drop test review (3 times from chest height) and the glass didn’t so much as scratch. One corner on the bottom aluminum did scuff on impact but is was very minor. The problem in that drop test was the phone just didn’t work after that. I baby my phones so I didn’t watch any more after that one and it didn’t matter, I already had the phone. :) I did drop my Xperia Z from off the couch onto a tile floor a couple of times but it did no damage to glass, bezels or internals if it makes you feel better.

    Clear(wire) simply does not sell any devices any more. But when I spoke with a CSR they told me that Sprint will not stop any services. And likely they will replace any devices that you have with new for free if they change the network.

    What bugs me about every other service is that unlike Clear, they’re not unlimited for a flat (tax-free) rate. Clear offered unlimited data and decently fast speeds (10Mbps) on a Mobile Wifi Hotspot for $50 / month. Who else has that? Nobody.

    • jay_max

      Indeed, that’s the best part of Clear’s service…unlimited hotspot data.
      I get 2.5 Gb/month hotspot on my 8x with my current TMO plan…rarely use more than that with Clear, so probably just dump Clear/Sprint, and tether from here on out and save some money.

  • Mirad77

    I thought David wrote about a tmo hotspot device. Why is clear a and sprint with tethering flying here ?
