    I purchased a Huawei E220 Modem from Three Mobile (my mobile provider in australia) and had heaps of trouble getting it working on my Macbook Pro (running Leopard) as the installation instructions that come with the modem were wrong.

    After trawling Google and trying many solutions I finally got it working - so I wrote up instructions on how to set it up:

    I hope this helps someone and saves people spending hours trying to get the modem working!

    I've had problems in the states setting up Sprint CDMA mobile broad band cards as well as AT&T GSM cards initially set up on Macs. Usually, I set them up on a store PC or something and then just plug it into the the Mac, seems to work and be a quick fix.

    It is quite annoying when you have to tell someone, "Oh this card has trouble working with your computer at first."
