Lightbulb Modem Script

I was told the "ticket was expedited" and I would get a call in 24-36 hours. I recieved no call so I called today and they gave me another ticket number, said this one was expedited as far as it could go and I SHOULD get a call in 24 to 36 hours.

For those that are wondering yes I know this is a MAC forum, but they will not help you if you say you are using a Mac (blackberry or sprint). What I need is for this to hook up with my MacPro. Since this will not work on either of the PC's I have either I am hoping that if they can get it to work on the PC it will work on the Mac. There are at least four others out there I know of that are having the same issue.

If you are looking at one of these, and need the PAM I would certainly make certain that it works within that 30 days.

If I actually get a call in the next 24 - 36 hours I will let ya know!
Okay, so I returned my 8830 today. I replaced it with the new RAZR2 v9m, and I love this phone (but I'll save this for another thread). In the process of getting my new phone working as a modem, I ran into the familiar "no carrier" message. I ended up writing my first CCL modem script so that I could use this phone as a modem. Anyhow, I edited the script to "dumb down" the modem init string, and I've attached it here just as one more thing to try. I did not have to do this with my 8830, so don't get your hopes too high, but I think it is worth a try (strip off the .txt extension before you put it into your /Library/Modem Scripts/ folder -- I had to do this for the upload).

Good luck!
