Last Updated: Nov 19, 2013

Note: Providing that the data plan subscription and electronic serial number (ESN) have been established in the Sprint billing system, the device will activate automatically when the device is turned on and connected to a Wi-Fi capable computer.

System Requirements

To install and use the Overdrive™ 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot, you must have a:

  • Wi-Fi capable computer
  • Web browser

Installation and Activation

Note: Installation and activation may require you to be logged in with administrative privileges.

  1. Make note of your ESN, usually printed on the underside of the device; on the Overdrive, it is located under the battery
  2. Install the battery and fully charge the device before proceeding
  3. Once fully charged, turn the device on by pressing and holding the Power button for 2 – 3 seconds
  4. The LCD will light up, and the device will automatically start the activation process. Wait until the Connect your computer to Wi-Fi network message appears; this may take several seconds
  5. From your computer, connect to the Overdrive using your normal Wi-Fi manager:
    • Locate and select the Overdrive (for example, Overdrive-D9A) within the available wireless networks
    • Click Connect and enter the default password: 12345
  6. Open a Web browser
  7. When the Terms and Conditions message appears, click I have read the terms and conditions check box, and then click Save
  8. In the Welcome to your Overdrive window, click The Internet, and the Web page will refresh to sprint.com
  9. Activation is complete, and you can start browsing the Internet. The device will automatically select the best connection available (3G or 4G).

Note: To access and change security and other settings, while connected to the Internet using your Overdrive, type http://overdrive in your browser's address bar (be sure to type the http:// part of the address to ensure you go to the correct page). To log in, enter the default password: password.
