  • Copy the "CDMA EV-DO" file into /Library/Modem Scripts on your Mac. (You'll be asked for your password.)
  • Change the modem script you're using from "au CDMA 1x WIN W01K" to "CDMA EV-DO".
  • Try connecting. If you're successful, try running a speed test from someplace like speakeasy.net.
Please post the results here.


This script worked for my 8703e running Blackberry OS 4.2, tethered to my Leopard machine via Bluetooth.

Thanks a ton! \o/

You have to do the bluetooth settings in your system preferences and for Verizon use #777 for the telephone number, account name is your tel#@vzw3.com, and the password is the logon password you use with your Verizon account.

In the advance settings under modem select vendor: other and Model: Verizon 1xEVDO Modem Script.

Once your 8830 is paired when you go to connect it should get an access request from your Mac before it connects.

It works great with my MacBookPro and is even faster than the lousy hotel wireless where I'm at right now.

Enjoy, if it works for you.
Ok, I have the same setup as you. When you say that you have to use the same password you use to logon with your Verizon account, are you referring to your verizonwireless.com password?

Peter Parker - any word on success with the 8320? Or does the original script posted at the top of the thread work?

TIA

Default Authentication failed?

I went through every single step in the process and then when I get to start connecting it says . . . "connecting to PPP Server . . ."
And then I get an error message that says "Authentication failed."

This used to work on my old Treo. I can't figure it out.

Any ideas?

I have successfully installed my Sprint 8830 on my new power book. It is substantially slower than the client I use to use on the PC.

Any suggestions???

I've noticed the same thing, it's about 1/3 the speed - maxing out at 350kbps downloads instead of 1mb. Is this a bluetooth limitation? Is the "Sprint PCS Vision" modem script under 10.5 at fault? I have a MacBook Pro and an 8830 through Sprint which connects using EVDO.

Where do I find WWAn support???

I go to the network settings, click advanced and see the network tab...but I can't find out where to enable WWAn support. Anyone have any more info on this?

Thanks to Peter and the others for this thread. Finally some help with tethering the Verizon 8830 to my Mac. This thread helped so much...

Don't see the option to select Verizon 1xEVDO Modem. Only option for "other" was Verizon Support (PC5220). Better work on that script install next...

Thanks again

Angry Cannot tether Sprint 8830 with Leopard

I am getting the same error. I was able to tether without a problem using 10.4 using the WWAN Script. I have scoured all the messages boards out there and I found only one post in relation to tethering with sprint blackberries under OS 10.5 Leopard....

The post suggested using the Sprint PCS Vision modem script, I have tried this and got the same "Unable to negotiate a remote PPP session". I have also tried several other modem scripts, and to no avail. My blackberry handheld software is at the latest version, I can tether just fine with a PC using the Sprint Mobile Broadband App.

It would be nice if it worked with the Mac. It must be the modem scripts.... I guess we have to wait until someone puts together some modem scripts that work for us...

This stuff looks good. So for VZW you have to get Tether before trying this?

Default Leopard, 8830, Sprint, and GSM

I have a Sprint 8830 and the bluetoooth phone as modem works fine under MacOS 10.5. However, I was not able to get it to work in Europe when using a GSM system. Do I need to enter different username/password/number into the modem control panel? I understand that Sprint uses Verizon's network in europe for GSM data.

Are the commands the same for 10.5.1 MAC OS? Interested in doing this and having no luck.

Can anyone confirm that any of these modem strings work with an 8310 on AT&T Wireless and Leopard? I tried, and it says it is connecting, but then it fails. If anyone has "idiot proof" step by step instructions, I would appreciate it.

Can you share your configuration? What modem script are you using? Are you just using phone number of #777 without a username and password?

Any help would be appreciated.
