    Only buy a card that claims to work with Mac OS X, and has current
    drivers for Mac OS X. Buy with a return priveledge in case it don't,
    despite claims. Buying locally facillitates that.

    Here is a link to one person's failed attempt.

    Subsequently someone got a GSM (not Sprint) Aircard working:

    None of the cards I see listed on SprintPCS web page

    http://www1.sprintpcs.com/explore/Ph...ctionCards.jsp

    claim Macintosh functionality.


    Perhaps you could use your cell phone as a Modem (a no-no) for SprintPCS
    if you need to use SprintPCS. I can find no SprintPCS solution in a
    quick attempt with Google. Hopefully there is one out there; don't buy a
    SprintPCS card unless you have good documentation of it working with OS
    X.

    On Jan. 7, I posted some info here about a company that specializes in
    connecting Macs to cellular data networks.

    See http://www.bluemobility.com

    Their website shows the Merlin C201 card.
