I love my modem!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Sprint







I love being connected. I believe approximately 80% of my interaction with the world is virtual. My best friends live in my computer and although we don't see each other often we communicate on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day. I have an pda, a laptop, a netbook and a desktop. All of these devices are connected to the Internet.

I primarily stay connected by using WiFi. My husband and I have wifi in the house and this enables me to work from any room in the house while keeping an eye on my active toddler. The only problem is that sometimes I have difficulty with the wifi connection on my laptop. There have been times when I was so frustrated because the signal wasn't working properly and my husband was not around to investigate the problem. Please don't think we have the stereotypical gender roles going on in my household, we are both pretty tech savvy but the router is in my husband's office and I respect his space.

Luckily, for the past few months problems with the Wifi have not had a negative impact on my ability to work and connect with my friends. As part of the Momspotters team at BlogHer, I was given the opportunity to try out the Sprint 3G/4G network with my own modem. Life has not been the same. Not only has having my own modem enabled me to always be connected in the home, when I am traveling (which is fairly often), I am always connected! No longer do I have to worry about paying for WiFi at the airport, at the hotel or in random places when I am on the road. If I need an Internet connection I simply connect with my modem. This year I've traveled to California, Tennessee, and New York. I always have a connection! If I want to take my son to the playground and need to catch up on some work - I have a connection! Not only do I have a connection but it is fast. I really cannot tell the difference between my wifi connection and my modem. For now, I only have experience with the 3G network, 4G is not available in my area yet but I am sure that when it is available the connection will be even faster!

My personal modem is truly my favorite bit of technology. And it was so simple to use. It is basically plug and play. I uploaded the software, plugged the modem into my USB port and with one click - connected! I love it.

I have had a few quirks with my modem. I've found that when my computer goes to sleep it takes several attempts for me to get the program working. Sometimes I have to remove the modem from the USB port and reattach it. This really isn't that big of a deal and if I wasn't such a lazy person I am sure I could get some tech assistance from customer service to alleviate it. Clearly, it is not bothering me enough to take the extra step of placing a call or sending an email.


The folks at Sprint have graciously decided to share the love with one of my readers. One of you will be the winner of a $300.00 Visa gift card. All you have to do is answer this question:
How would the power of the Sprint Now Network keep you organized and connected?

Busy Mom said...

I have a lot of downtime with 3 kids in sports and I'd love to be able to use it better by being able work during practices and when we are out of town.

M. Denise Wilmer Barreto said...

That would be a God-send for the following reasons:

1. Always on the go like @BusyMom - I'd use it when I'm out and about with my kids at their various activities

2. We are traveling bunch plus I am starting to travel more on my own and get sick of paying for access or hoping it's included in my hotel room

3. Being connected is like air for me - another opportunity to write, share and interact online would be welcomed.

Mocha Dad said...

I travel all the time and the network I'm with has spotty service. Sprint could help me to be more productive when I'm on the go.

Mom in the City said...

Now that it is getting warm outside, I'm playground bound. It would be great to be able to use my laptop while letting my boys get some of their energy released outside!

*Lissa* said...

Oh, how I want one of those. My husband works out in the boonies and could really use one. His modem kicks out at least once every 10 minutes. Really annoying, especially when we keep in touch via Skype a lot, since he is gone for weeks at a time.

kasey said...

Definitely - It would keep me connected by giving me a way to always stay in touch - and organized because I could have all of my important info right there with me all the time, and I could make changes right away.

LittleTechGirl said...

Awesome. I have actually been evaluating getting one of these. I had the pleasure of doing a 30 day trial of a Clear modem a few months back and I wrote a review, and I wondered about the Comcast version of the service. Sprint was next on the list to check out so I am glad to see you report good things.

I am about to embark on quite a bit of travel myself so I definitely need to do something so that I won't get too behind.

Angelica Bays, TygrLilies.com said...

Oh, are you kidding? I have a memory like a sieve. a BROKEN sieve! I NEED this to keep everything in my life straight!

Vanessa said...

It would help me stay connected by having everything at my fingertips. Phone contacts, internet, tv, etc. Wow! That would be awesome!

*Tanyetta* said...

We are always on the go as a family! The Sprint Now network would help us stay connected to family and friends while we are day tripping on the weekend exploring our new town.

MoreThanMommy said...

I do everything online and since my business is online, too, it's important to stay connected. I'm another mom who is always on the go and who travels a lot, but I think it could also help by allowing me to go out to work. Sometimes it's just too hard to focus at home.

Andrea H said...

It would be nice to be able to travel and have internet access wherever I go. The last hotel I stayed at charged $14 a day for internet access! Ridiculous!

It would also make it easier to keep up with my blog while on the go. It seems like I'm always on the go!

"Miss" Anita said...

Sprint Now would help keep me organized and connected by helping me stay in touch with my friends and family who live halfway across the country.

Naomi said...

Connected 24-7? Whoa. I imagine productivity in the carpool pickup, doctor's offices, airports... giddy with the thought!

Jennae @ Green Your Decor said...

This would be a literal lifeline for me! I feel like I'm tethered to my house more often than not because I can't work while I'm out. I'd love to be able to take my daughter to the park and get a little work done while I'm at it. Or to be able to work while taking her to frequent doctor's appointments without having to hope that the hospital WiFi will be cooperative. So much of our time during those visits is spent waiting and letting her color or watch TV, and I feel like I could be getting so much done! And although I'm not traveling much these days, the idea of never having to pay for airport or hotel WiFi definitely makes me happy!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

There are a few coffee shops in my area that I would like to be able to spend some time at working, organizing and spending sometime by myself getting things done but their internet is spotty at best so it would be nice to have something reliable to take with me. I think I would also use it while out and about with my daughter while she is busy with her activities and playing.

Thanks, Renee!

Angie Marion said...

I too would be able to use this on the go. RIght now, the weather is breaking so we'll be spending more time out and football season is about to start so it would be great to have this while I'm out and about!

K. Rock said...

I would love to be able to use my laptop on the go. I am just getting really deep into social networking and I need to have that capability everywhere.

The speed of the Now Network from Spring would help me stay in touch with our relatives who live in various parts of the country.

Marianna said...

This would come in so handy! It looks so convenient and I know your family would get alot of use out of it! We are always on the go and often when we travel we find ourselves staying places without internet access - subsequently I get behind on email, twitter, auctions, etc. This would help reduce my stress by helping me "stay on top of things" so to speak - and not to fall behind! Thanks for the chance!

Tammy said...

I would love one of these modems! I have a home based virtual assistant business, and I homeschool my youngest son. Sometimes it is tough to juggle client deadlines with home school pe, or field trips. With one of these modems I could do both with no problem!

Deb said...

My kids' phones are on Sprint, and I've been thinking about getting a laptop modem for the times when wi-fi doesn't cut it. I don't know why I haven't yet--time I guess! I hate airports who don't share free, easy wi-fi! And sometimes wi-fi isn't strong enough for video conf calls. I'm bumping it up my list.

Sheliza said...

The Sprint Now Network would be an asset to me being the on-the-go momma that I am. I am forever in the carpool line, going to practices, doing work for the husband as well as my blogging. Not having to search for a free WIFI signal would be nice. What an awesome giveaway. Thanks for the chance :)

Amber said...

I travel for work and school so with the Sprint Now Network I don't have to worry about losing my connection with with family and friends while on the go. It would make it so much easier to update social networking, blog, and to email. It's so important to be "connected". Thanks! :)

1stopmom said...

This would make so things so much easier for me. It is a pain to always look for free wifi. Or only be able to go to/near places that I know for sure offer it. When that doesn't work I just have to deal with not being able to get online at all :(

LStewart said...

I have several contacts that need to be able to contact me 24/7. Being able to stay connected with them, without having to always run to the office to check in would be great. I could get a whole lot more done for my family if I wasn't having to constantly make an office run.

This would allow me to always be connected I go to college in AR and we do not have wireless on campus so it would be nice to go anywhere in my apartment and be online. I get a little frustrated having to sit in my room all the time.

As an elementary school teacher and someone who still uses an “old fashioned” desk calendar and planning book, I couldn’t think of anything more useful! To have the ability to have all my information for meetings, parent contacts, school calendar, student birthdays, lesson plans and personal appointments along with the ability to have the information travel with me from home to the classroom would be amazingly helpful. The ability to have a camera to capture a “special” moment in the classroom would also be exciting. The possibilities are endless!!!

This would help keep me connected because my internet drops off periodically and this would enable me to not lose my connection. It would also be awesome to use while traveling or waiting at the doctor's office, etc. There's no end to all the great ways this would help me. Thanks for the chance to win!

My life consists of lots of waiting. Having this would let me use my idle time to organize me life and contact people when I have the time.

This would be a total blessing for me with my nutty schedule. I could keep track of doctor appointments, use my email, use it as a phone, and also use the calendar feature every day, updating as I go. Great giveaway!

Cecelia---Sis---Mom said...

I have been drooling over a Sprint modem for a while. I work at home via laptop. I have 2 boys (15 & 11) that have very busy schedules and this would allow me to work wherever they need to be. We already have 4 Sprint phones, so I can't afford to add the modem, or I would have a while ago.

I find myself sitting here, there and yonder waiting on my boys when in reality I could actually be finishing up my workload. Oh it would be heaven.

Thanks for the chance.

I like that the Moment has a notification bar that runs along the top and when you get a new email or other notification, it will sit up there. From any screen on the phone, you can swipe down from that notification bar and it will show you any missed calls, and what unread messages you have. I also like the fact that it pulls in your entire contact list from your Google/Gmail account.

The Sprint modem and network would allow me to stay connected on the go, which is all the time. Accessing emails is the most common thing. But Wyoming is a very rural state. This would allow me to access recipes for the night's dinner, check my social network sites and even access maps and directions!

The speed of the Now Network from Sprint would help so much. I am a mom of 2 young boys 3 & 6 & I work full-time plus as an administrator over 2 care facilities. Not only am I out and about running around with my boys appointments and schedules alot, but so is true of my job as an Administrator. How the speed of the Now Network from Sprint would help me is that it basically would allow me to access my internet to keep up-to-date on work issues and family issues via my Email from anywhere that I am at. I'd also be able to access my internet for things like mapquesting a location I need to go to or looking up a product online that I need for my kids or for the care home & keep up on news and current events (as the internet is my main source of news). I'd be able to Tweet no matter where I am at (I love Twitter). I'd be able to take pics and share them quickly with friends and family. I'd be able to utilize my calendar& have it synched between computers & send a message to others to put it on their calendar. For me, it seems like there is never enough time in a day to do all that I want to get done, but with the Now Network from Sprint, I'd be able to get more done and utilize my time more efficiently, be more organized and stay in touch with others.

This would really help me keep in touch. I am a college student a town over from where I live and I also help to take care of my grandmother and it seems like I am always away from home doing stuff. This would really help me keep in touch with everybody and vice versa.

My husband does all the driving so I could use my time so productively if I had this! It would also be great for the doctor's appt wait times,etc

Tarah said...

This would be a wonderful way to keep in touch with my sister who lives in Florida. It would also be a great way to keep track of my "to-do" lists, birthdays and other errands I need to run.

I would use this in the hotel at Disneyland. We go every year and I ALWAYS have issues with slow internet connection or no connection at all. This would really save me, as I have to do SOME work even during vacation.
Thanks for the chance.

I'm spending a lot of time with my father while he is ill. Being on the road back and forth, five trips in 6 months, this would have kept me connected to family and friends.

Tracy W. aka Ma said...

I'd love to be able to keep up with my blogs, my email, my social networking while I am on the go. Right now I dont have that capability.

simone/ thebubbledies said...

I would use it to check restaurant reviews when we are out and on the go and to price check items I am considering buying. Thanks! thebubbledies(at)gmail(dot)com

Melinda said...

it would let me make calls all hours of the day

Joy said...

I go out into the sticks many weekends to see my relatives and they have no internet. While I love hanging out with them, it would be a lot easier if i had the Sprint Now Network to keep me connected, so that my homework which requires internet access would not be neglected until Sunday night.

eclairre said...

I am always away from home, so Id be in better touch with my family :)

MandyV said...

It's so tiny and convenient, two things that I love in a mobile device!

Messy Mommy said...

It seems like I always find myself in a spot with either no wi-fi or no FREE wi-fi. This would be SO awesome for that! Staying connected while traveling!!!!

Susan C. said...

I'd love to have the internet wherever I go, instead of always looking for a hotspot. Wow!

I am always traveling for work but my phone and slow network won't keep up. I hope this is really a better solution- it would make me easier to contact and save a lot of time and frustration.

chromiumman said...

it would be much easier to stay in contact with family members while i'm on the road

I need this

Melanie said...

I have a Palm Pro through Sprint, so I already know how wonderful they are. My phone is like one of my children and it keeps me connected in every way I need to be, by phone, text, email and web! I love it!

LVI56 said...

I travel doing lots of technical support. A reliable internet connection would be great for having access to resources and email.

erin m. said...

From an alarm in the morning, checking my facebook to getting directions anywhere anytime is an amazing convenience!

TX_Jen34 said...

It would help me by keeping all my info in one place.

becky @ misspriss said...

Something like this is great for a writer like me, so I can go to a bookstore, coffee shop or library to write & be assured that I have internet access when I need to. Also? Great for traveling. Those airport access points are EXPENSIVE.

Marci said...

They block a lot of sites at work and my email. I would love to be able to check my email during my breaks and lunch!

dhunt said...

Would love to win !!

sweetsue said...

I spend a lot of time in Drs waiting rooms, I would love to use this to catch up on my email while I am waiting.

I guess I am not as computer savvy as most,,,but this sounds as if will extend my range

pickledseeds said...

It would help me stay connected with my family while I'm traveling.

momznite said...

While waiting at my child's lesson I could order flowers for a friend's birthday, renew my library book, and schedule an oil change.

intomist said...

I could take my laptop anywhere and keep track of my e-bay auctions. I could keep on top of them anywhere and that would get me more organized.

Courtney said...

It would keep be connected.. esp. while we are camping and would keep me organized for all my daughters sporting games.

Nelsby said...

I do a decent amount of traveling for work. Often, I end up in locations without Wi-Fi...and I truly need access to both my email and the internet in general throughout the day. For me, the Sprint Overdrive would not simply be a luxury. Now that I am aware of it, the Overdrive would be necessity in keeping my connected and organized at a moment's notice...instead of having to wait until I found a hot spot.

Thank you for this generous giveaway - I would be SO thrilled to win!

This would be so awesome when traveling with 3 monkeys, er I mean children. Being connected in the car, hotels and where ever we end up (camping, grandma's, the beach) during boring traveling times would keep the yahoos from actually speaking to each other which usually results in an argument! As far as helping me with organization well I can only say it would be a certified miracle if it could get ole scatterbrained me on track but who knows this might just do it!

Sky said...

The Sprint Now Network would keep me organized by allowing me to access all of the information I need and giving me that access quickly. As a wife, mom, librarian, student, and blogger...I need all the help I can get and I need to stay connected!

Marcia said...

It seems that I spend a lot of time checking various calendars for the family activities; it would be great to have them all on my phone.

VickieB said...

Until 4G is available in our area, I wouldn't use it. Unfortunately Sprint doesn't have the unrestricted 4G in our area and the 3G would be to restrictive.

Nikki said...

1. Keep calendars and schedules synced & up to date while on the go!

2. Keep the family website updated more quickly with new pics! No more waiting until we get home to upload pics and possibly forgetting to update the family website!

3. This will allow more time at the park! Can take the family to the park and work while the family plays!

Thank you for the great giveaway!

mickeyfan said...

I am in sales. Imagine how much time I waste while searching for a signal. Add to that the fact that our home network has rather spotty coverage... I'd waste WAY less time with the Sprint network.

Nancy said...

I am self employed and work from home so the Now Network would help me keep connected to my clients, especially when I am on the road. It would great to have easy access to the web to respond to emails and solve client issues.

Andrea H said...

It would help me meet important deadlines without having to be at home on my laptop all the time. It would be nice to have a connection while I am at the Dr's office or at my sons soccer practice.

Thanks!

DG said...

this device would make my life easier because I can bring it with me at home, work, or even on casual outings! it would help keep things organized becuase it's so small and convenient! This fabulous speed internet connection would keep in touch with family and friends whenever

This would come in handy when we are on the run.

Ravzie said...

I would LOVE to be able to check my email at any time! I worry about important information not received in a timely manner when I am out and about. Thanks.

Princess Golden Hair said...

Sprint high speed mobile internet access would keep me connected and organized. It would allow my PC to be more productive in the comfort of my own home or another remote location like school, the airport, or on vacation. I could submit reports for work, load video and photos, tweet my friends, check my email, update my blog, myspace, and facebook, and so much more.

Pattie F. said...

Our family is on the go a lot. I could use this to keep connected with everything while traveling from one event to another. I also work from my home and it would be nice to be able to go somewhere without having to worry that I am missing something important.

I love this idea!

Melinda said...

I would use this while traveling, it would make it so much easier to stay in touch with family and friends!

Wow! Yeah, I'd love to be able to access the internet any time and anywhere. It would be especially helpful when waiting...I hate feeling like I've lost that time. I'd be able to email, Tweet or just surf around in those extra free moments.

Thanks for the review and the great giveaway!!! :)
