    Is it possible to use a Verizon Air Card on a MacBook MBpro..?? If using VmFusion, is there an adapter to plug the thing into a Notebook..?? If not, any Mac equivalents..?? :confused:

    It should give you the option to select your type of device. I have only done this 2 times, however, and don't remember the setup procedure.:eek: You do have your aircard and can connect it when it prompts you for it, right? Cause you will need to do that during setup. There are instructions somewhere on the site that will walk you though it though.

    What Im trying to say is, I have a Verizon Broadband Air card supplied by my company that works in my PC Toughbook...I am thinking of purchasing a MacBook when the new ones come out...But, in the present MacBooks and MacBook Pros there are no "PC Slots" to accommodate an air card...Is there some sort of adapter that could be purchased or some sort of tethering..The Verizon site does not mention Mac as being compatible...

    Oh, in that case someone else will have to help you, sorry! I would think that there could be some form of adapter. (My wireless modem is USB.) Good luck.:eek: Someone should show up here and help you though.

    Just have your company give that card to someone else and order you a USB version that works with any computer. Most have Mac drivers these days.

    Cheers.

    Can two devices (a USB, If I bought it on my own) and the PC version share a phone number or whatever is is that makes em unique...?? The company would not buy a USB version as they have the PC Air Cards literally by the hundreds..
