It's been mentioned on the forums here a few times now, but we've decided that it was time to make a more formal announcement about the KR2 so that potential buyers can have more complete information when making a decision about which router to purchase.

Kyocera has made it clear that they will NOT be providing ANY future firmware upgrades for the KR2 - this means that whatever devices and features it supports now, that's it.

It is important that anyone purchasing a KR2 understands that even though their current modem may be supported, if they switch carriers or upgrade sometime down the road, it is not likely that their new device will work with the KR2.

To read more and find out some options/selections for PCMCIA card users, check out this article: Kyocera KR2 Reaching End of Life: No More Updates!

That's really too bad. I think it's well-known that CradlePoint designed and built that router for Kyocera. If they're allowed the option, perhaps CradlePoint will decide to pick it up and/or support it. The PCMCIA slot is a good thing, IMHO. It makes the router a lot more flexible for some situations. If one was willing to do without the PCMCIA card support, can the KR2 run firmware designed for one of the true CradlePoint routers?

That's great considering I bought mine 3 weeks ago. At $200 for a router I thought that I would at least get some 4G use out of it.
