Novatel Merlin EX720
After some heavy Googling, I found an outdated site that listed a rather lengthy process of installing Parallels or Boot Camp to get the Windows activation software running on your Mac. See, the card cannot be activated with the adapter for some reason. It *must* be in an ExpressCard slot to work. The site, MWGblog linked to some outdated files on the Sprint website. These included supposedly new Mac drivers and documentation. A little looking around brought me to the Novatel Mac Integration package. This zip file includes two documents, one for OS X Tiger, and one for OS X Leopard. In addition, there was a software package for installation, which was, to my amazement, the Sprint Activation Utility. Wooo!!!!11!!!1!
- You'll need the following three pieces of information:
- MDN (10-digit number)
- MSID (10-digit number)
- Lock (10-digit number)
- When you've activated the card and connect for the first time, you'll be asked for a username and password. Enter anything at all. It's a legacy appearance having to do with the Mac's PPP stack. This information isn't used or checked by Sprint.
