No Sprint service, advice please.

I have almost zero Sprint service at my house. I have to go out in the street to make calls. I guess that's not the end of the world, it's a quiet street and the weather is good, but I'd kinda like to be able to make and receive calls from inside.

Does FP have anything like a Sprint Airave, or if I bought one off ebay would it work with FP?

I can make calls but not receive them using connection optimizer. I'm not keen on wiping out a bunch of stuff from the phone doing an MSL reset. Would a profile/PRL update erase stuff too? I have a Galaxy S4. Also not keen on the phone trying to connect to whatever wifi is in range instead of using the cell network when I'm out. That sounds like a headache.

Hoping for some good advice.

    @Xenu‌ - The Sprint Airave would improve your signal at your home, and we have had other users purchase this to use with our service.

    If you would like to try a PRL/profile update this will not wipe your data and may improve your connectivity.

    Thanks Taylor. I'll try updating somewhere that has good LTE connectivity.

    @Xenu Freedompop calling works over wifi ... If you have home internet buy a cheap wifi router. This will save on data costs as well.

    Using the Wilson Cradle also helps but I personally like the Airave because it is like a personal cell tower.

    REMEMBER: YOU NEED TO HAVE AN ACTIVE SPRINT ACCOUNT TO HAVE AN AIRAVE IN SERVICE. THIS IS BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL TAXED EVERY MONTH BY $8 TO USE IT ON SPRINT.
