    Welcome to Android Central! It doesn't appear that it would be compatible with Sprint. The tablet's specs say bands 1, 3, 7, and 20 on LTE-FDD, while Sprint uses 2, 25, and 26 (List of LTE networks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Thank you for your fast response! I really like to do this device and it would have been perfect for me. I am legally blind and like bigger phones / tablets because of the screen real estate. Would you know of any future device similar to dis coming to the States and Sprint network?

    It's not entirely clear. That Wikipedia article does mention band 41, but with the following note: "Accessible with devices supporting band 38 by using MFBI." From what I understand, band 41 is Spark, so you'd need that in your area. Let me see if any of my colleagues who are more familiar with Sprint know about this.

    I'm afraid I don't know much about similar devices.

    I agree.. Spark is band 41 to my knowledge with Sprint. Outside of that I'm not too sure about the other mentioned frequencies.

    Thanks! I called Sprit yesterday and the tech support rep. Stated the bands mentioned are not supported.

    The rep stated the device will support data but not voice part of it

    That makes sense. The device is GSM, not CDMA. Sprint still uses primarily CDMA for voice, not LTE.
