3Gstore's Exclusive HTC EVO 4G Tipsheet and EVO 4G Resource Center

All customers who purchase the EVO from 3Gstore will get our 10-page HTC Evo Tipsheet FREE!

There are many reasons why people buy from 3Gstore - helpful pre-sales support, a great variety of products, competitive pricing, a solid reputation - but the technical support that 3Gstore provides their customers is what really makes 3Gstore stand out. While many of our competitors claim they offer tech support, when you call them, they will forward you to the manufacturer (which, depending on the manufacturer, can be a nightmare!); others do offer their own support but from inexperienced or poorly-trained reps who have never even used the products they're supporting. 3Gstore provides top-of-the-line tech support from our own 3G experts who use the equipment we sell on a daily basis (and live here in the US!). Our techs are able to troubleshoot issues and resolve the problem from experience, not by reading from a script!

In addition to the support we offer over the phone or email, the mobile broadband experts at 3Gstore also include exclusive resources with many of the products we sell (such as the 3Gstore Support CD we include with Cradlepoint routers, the Pepwave Surf Mini, and IP Switch). Our latest addition to our lineup of exclusive tipsheets for 3Gstore customers is our Sprint HTC EVO Tipsheet. This valuable resource makes setting up your HTC EVO smartphone as easy as possible, and includes lots of valuable guides for getting the most out of your phone. These guides are particularly helpful for new smartphone users who are unfamiliar with the Android platform, but are also helpful for seasoned smartphone users!

The EVO Tipsheet includes Step-by-Step guides on:
  • Activation
  • Backup/Syncing
  • Mac Syncing
  • Music Syncing
  • Mobile Hotspot Setup
  • Changing maximum allowed hotspot clients
  • Managing authorized hotspot clients
  • Checking RSSI (Signal Strength)

All customers who order the EVO from 3Gstore will be emailed this tipsheet when their order ships. If you already purchased your EVO from 3Gstore and would like to receive this tipsheet, email support "at" with "EVO Tipsheet" in the subject line and include your order number in the body of the email.

3Gstore provides tipsheets like this to our customers for free. We have received countless emails from people that purchased elsewhere requesting to purchase our tipsheets to help them solve an issue that had caused them a lot of frustration and wasted time. With the horror stories we've heard of people purchasing from a company that didn't provide any help when they had a problem, it's a no-brainer that 3Gstore is the place to go for all of your mobile broadband needs!

3Gstore has also created the 3Gstore HTC EVO 4G Resource Center where you can find all of the content that we have published about the EVO 4G. Whenever we post any new EVO 4G content, it will still continue to show up on EVDOinfo as usual, but we will also update the EVO 4G Resource Center to include all of our EVO 4G related content.

Sprint 250U Modem, First 3G/4G Modem With an Antenna Port, In Stock at 3Gstore!

Sierra 250U in stock at 3Gstore

The 250U is not the first 3G/4G-capable device, but it is the first to feature something potential users have been hoping for since the very first 3G/4G device: an antenna port for improving cellular signal. The 250U actually features two antenna ports: one for a 3G antenna, and one for a 4G antenna (which aren't yet available, but will be in the future). This really sets the 250U apart from its predecessors and makes it more accessible to a lot more potential users - mobile broadband users who rely on antennas to get a reliable signal for their 3G aircards have been hesitant to make the move to a 3G/4G device, but now users don't have to sacrifice the ability to easily boost 3G signal in order to get a 3G/4G modem!

The Sprint 250U is now available from 3Gstore for $19.99 with a new 2-year contract, and you'll receive a $50 mail-in rebate (meaning you MAKE $30 after rebate!). Plus, you can get $20 off any 3G antenna and $20 off any router when you order the 250U with Sprint service rom 3Gstore!

Verizon 7501 Wireless Router - DOES NOT SUPPORT 3G DATA CARDS

Verizon Wireless recently started selling a "wireless router" on their website for $9.97 + free overnight shipping. The product page claims that it is compatible with almost every 3G-enabled phone and Verizon aircard, including ExpressCards, which seemed strange since the router only has an ethernet port and USB port. We were very skeptical of what Verizon was claiming that this product could do for such a low cost, especially since they claim it supports virtually every 3G device on their network. To see if these claims were true we ordered one for our technicians to find out just how well these units performed.
