Sprint updates drivers for Mac OS X


I sure hope this works because I haven’t been able to use one of my Sprint dongles for months. Sprint has updated their drivers for Novatel EV-DO Rev. A devices (S720, U720, EX720 and U727) to play nice with Leopard and its WWAN framework. Sprint is even allowing your dongles to be used as GPS devices free of charge. High five, Sprint. Version 2.0 is a hefty 12MB and I hope it’s worth the time to download. Just wish I brought my U727 with me.

Of course, it’s not all peaches and cream. It appears that the WWAN interface doesn’t want to show you signal status, which is a real bummer consider that’s the only thing I really care about.

Update: Looks like this was released earlier in the month. Better late then never, I suppose.
