Sprint 4G LTE modem

Sprint just came out with a 4G LTE usb modem. Anyone know how I can get a hold of one of these for the Millenicom BYOD plan? Buying from their website requires a 2 year contract and I just get the run around when I try to talk to customer service about buying it for the full price with no contract.

If anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated!

Is the model the Franklin 700 (or U770)?

I bet its too early for them to be out there used/resold... but give it a few months and I bet you start seeing them.

I contacted Millenicom about these to see if I did get my hands on one if they'd be able to activate it. They haven't heard back from Sprint on the topic but were willing to attempt it if I had the modem.

If someone finds a way to purchase one without a contract I'd be up for giving it a shot. I swear you used to be able to purchase devices on sprint.com and choose no contract but I sure can't find that now.

It's the U770. Thanks for the info, guys. Guess I have to wait some more.

Check out the folks at unlimited4g.com. They are offering the U777 on their $80/month plan for $50 extra up front.

I don't see that on their web site.

I got the information in an email response to my similar question about modem availability. Use the Contact tab on their site.

I talked to 4G unlimited , and they do not want to make that public because they have a short supply of that device and are still pushing the 250u

then they don't offer the plan ... the 250u is worthless unless you have ClearWire coverage and from what I've heard its barely good as a 3G modem
