I have a sprint Sierra Wireless Internet Card. I want to change my internet card to the new and powerful INSTINC. Can I connect my sprint internet connection to my computer via INSTINCT?
Sprint will tell you that using the Instinct as a Phone as a Modem is not supported. Not speaking for Sprint, I have heard of some 'hacks' that make it work. However, you risk having your account terminated or additional fees and charges applied if you use these 'hacks'.
There may be a how-to around here somewhere, but here is one on a different site.
However, if you already have a card, it's probably not worth the hassle and risk. This is more something to use in a pinch.
The weird thing is that the setup CD that came with mine actually has a setup option to install software for using it as a modem. I didn't install it since I don't really have a need to use it that way, but it seems odd to include that if they forbid using it in that fashion.
Yes you can but you have to pay for a phone as modem package
that is what a sprint Rep told me when i called and asked after about five minutes of explaining and finally a supervisor said
not to do it or i would be charged per K of info i pulled in and for a phone as modem package or something.
