PCS Intel EV-DO Modem Script has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

This is a basic improvement of the Sprint PCS Vision connection script, with optimizations for EV-DO devices. It is meant for USB and Bluetooth 2.0 high-speed connections.

This modem script is for all EV-DO phones on all EV-DO carriers (Verizon Wireless, Sprint PCS, Alltel, etc). While we can't test every EV-DO phone, it should work with the vast majority of devices. The PCS Intel EV-DO Modem Script removes key bottlenecks that prevented the ability to use your phone as a modem at full speed.

This script is only necessary for users who connect with their phone as a modem. We only suggest using it with USB and Bluetooth 2.0 more...

Version 1.0:
  • Initial Release

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4.3 or Later, EV-DO Phone with USB or Bluetooth 2.0 Connection, Bluetooth 2.0 Mac if using Bluetooth 2.0 Phone.

Glad I found this! It seems to be working well with my Verizon Palm Centro tethered to Mac OS 10.5.6.

The Verizon EV-DO script that comes with 10.5.6 truly sux0rz and is at least part of what's responsible for Bluetooth tether lock-ups (requiring a hard restart with the power key).

I've only been using this script for a day but it seems to establish the connection more quickly and reliably. Performance-wise it may be giving me higher throughput, or may not, but it seems to try harder.

If anyone has any cure for the pppd hangs using Mac OS X combined with Bluetooth EV-DO modem tethering, I'd sure like to hear about them. Symptom: the status in the menu bar displays "Disconnecting" endlessly, or, occasionally "Connecting" endlessly. Sometimes the menu bar will freeze followed by the entire UI. All of those situations require a reboot, whether via the Apple menu or power button.

I've tried a recommended 3rd party procedure involving unloading the bluetooth i/o module and restarting the blued service, but unlike the reports that accompanied that procedure, the dialup cu devices aren't recreated when blued restarts. So that doesn't work.

But, anyway, this may help.

Thank you again!

If there are any modifications that will help specifically with the Centro/Verizon combo I'd be all over those too. In my area (San Francisco) Verizon has the best coverage, sometimes by a large margin. I'd try DIY but I'd have to understand the EV-DO arcana first, which is all new to me.

The fact that it works for you gives me heart. I have been trying for months to get my Motorola Razr v9m to work.

Any suggestions or pointer to a cookbook to make this fly for me?

Good. I'd rather use Bluetooth anyway. Also, Bluetooth "seems" to get a little closer.

Provider is Sprint.
