Move sim from 4620 to usb device and use in MBR1000?

I'm sure this has been discussed but I just can't find the threads.

I know at first the MBR1000 wasn't compatible with 4g devices but I thought I read here at one point that a firmware update had fixed that. Am I imagining that or is it true?

The 4620 I've got is driving me nuts (piece of crap) and I've got a MBR1000 in the closet from the old Franklin/Sprint 3g days that's collecting dust. I'd love to put it to use if I can.

you'd need to swap out the sim from the 4620 to a Pantech UML290 using a micro to standard sim adapter. Your MBR1000 will support this.

Edited: The MBR1000 does in fact support the UML290

Jim, I understand that I would need to swap the sim from the 4620 to the uml290. Why does the uml290 not work in the MBR100? Is it just the fact that the MBR1000 does not support 4G?

I guess if it's impossible for me to use the MBR1000 in the way I described, then I will buy one of the new mhs291's and go that route. At least they are cheaper than the 4620

I have been using this configuration for months now. Performance and stability are excellent.
