    hey guys

    i managed to get on the at&t all you can eat $29 data plan for ipad, but no longer have the ipad (gave it away, was not using it enough). however, i kept the sim.

    i'm thinking of putting the microsim in a modem and using it in my mbp... however, i was hoping to get some recommendations. any one using one in the SD slot or a general USB one (the SD slot is why i posted this in the MBP forum, mods!).

    realize the software is not built in, so that would be a pretty key requirement. i hate the idea of os 10.7 coming out and having to wait six months for drivers...

    thanks guys!

    Just get a Micro-Sim to SIM adaptor and use a regular USB Modem.

    speaking of those USB modems, I have yet to find one that has 64-bit kernel extensions....

    both great responses. i hadn't thought of the converter option, and i would definitely want to find a 64-bit driver.

    hmm. anyone else?

    you use 64-bit kernel I take it, the extension has to match the kernel :)
