Sprint AIRAVE™ requires connection to broadband data service. This typically is through an available data port located on either an existing broadband modem or through a router, which is purchased separately.
Sprint AIRAVE works with either DSL or cable broadband service.
The coverage radius is up to 5,000 square feet.
An audio indicator (two short tones) before making or receiving a call tells you that you are within the AIRAVE coverage area. In addition, you can dial *99 on your CDMA handset and a prerecorded message confirms that you are within AIRAVE coverage area.
AIRAVE is compatible with all Sprint CDMA phones including Power Source phones.
Yes. However, you may not be able to make 911 calls in the event of an electrical power outage, a broadband connection failure, or a termination of broadband service or other service disruption. Also, 911 or enhanced 911 services can be limited in areas outside of Sprint Nationwide Network coverage. Not all public safety answering points have location-based E911 technology. You must be prepared to report your location to the 911 operator when placing an emergency call.
All Sprint customers with a Sprint CDMA handset can use the AIRAVE device. However, the customer must have the unlimited calling plan on their account in order to take advantage of the unlimited calling plan.

Yes. All the voice functions you enjoy with your Sprint CDMA handset can be used while you are within the AIRAVE coverage area. And while data applications are accessible, they are provided at the same performance level as is currently available through Sprint Vision. In addition, data usage is not part of the unlimited plan.
Yes. Calls originating inside the AIRAVE coverage area transfer to the Sprint Nationwide Network once you leave the AIRAVE coverage area.
Note: you will be billed at your regular wireless plan rate for the portion of the call that has been transferred to the Sprint Nationwide Network.
Calls made outside the AIRAVE coverage area are not transferred to the AIRAVE device even though you may be within the coverage area. If you wish to take advantage of the unlimited calling feature of AIRAVE, you must end the call that was placed outside of the coverage area and initiate a new call on the AIRAVE device.
