Pay to play As of this writing, Virgin Mobile offers four plans: I also plan to use it with my MacBook Pro.
Install the Connection Software – Mac OS X – Virgin Mobile
Mac App Store Speciality level out of ten: Mac OS X Speciality level out of ten: Is the pc absolutely necessary and if so do you need to also install the drivers on the pc? It rejects my PIN. The process is a little different on a Windows machine. You might call and broaband2go to their technical support team or perhaps someone will answer this post who is in the know.
The drive contains two files. Setting up the MC for activation and use is trivial.
Kind of a bummer for Verizon and Sprint customers who were hoping to have one of those new Windows Phone 7 devices in time for the holidays.
Connects like a champ. Oct 13, 2: For example, I purchased a 20 dollar top up card from Best Buy, added the top up card pin number to my account, and then associated the funds from the top up broadbqnd2go with the 20 dollar “data plan”.
The results are pretty impressive. Will love this service if it works I plugged the Broadband2Go device back into the Broadband2fo port and it launched a welcome window, instructions for the mac and an installer package which I installed.
Aug mzc, 7: Can anyone confirm that this works or shed more light on it? Virgin Mobile estimates that MB will last for about 5 hours of Web browsing, 25 minutes of streaming video or 10, e-mails. During this time you will also select a rate plan or how you want to handle the data access on your account.
Did you download the software package that is specific for your operating system from the Novatel website? It in turn gives broadband2gi a couple sets of numbers which have to be entered in the Connection Manager to program the modem before it is usable.
Beoadband2go not really interested in spending money on the data plan if the modem isn’t going to work on my MBP. Did you try installing the drivers that I linked in a previous post? RSS feed for comments on this post. After that, it was pretty straight forward. But it will only let me access the Virgin site. Both Windows and Mac have a connection manager that gets installed as soon as you insert the card.
I’m thinking about getting one, but I can’t find any clear advice on whether it works on the MacBook.
Install the Connection Software – Mac OS X 10.5
Sep 9, 9: I don’t know if it has anything to do with already having another Novatel 3G wireless card. This means that wherever I go, Broadband2gi usually have my Mac with me so I can work on both personal and business-related stuff.
It actually took me quite a while to set it up because I didn’t program the modem after activating it. Top off or add credit to your account and associate it broadband2gk a “data plan”.
