    I have the "old" Macbook and I was wondering if there was an aircard that was compatible with the Macbook that is on the Verizon network? If there is not, do I have to buy AT&T service to use the aircard?

    Thanks,

    Make sure that the Verizon USB is Mac compatible...some are some aren't.

    I have the USB720 from Verizon and it works exceptionally.

    I am using a USB727 from Verizon and have had no problems with the new MacBook or with the previous generation MacBook or MacBook Pro.

    So...

    So, the product in the link below will allow me to plug the product into my Macbook's USB port and I will be able to log onto the Internet and surf the web and check my emails from anywhere by connecting to the cell networks? Anywhere I am that has cell service I will be able to connect to the Internet?
