Ericsson F3507G WWAN Card on Telstra NextG
For anyone like me that wants to use one of these on Telstra NextG but cannot get it to connect this post may do the trick.
I have a ThinkPad x301 and purchased a F3507G card for it from eBay.
I used my Telstra NextG Sim Card that is on a plan. ($29.95pm for 300MB).
The Software with the WWAN device says the SIM is not compatible.
Then I Made a New Dialup Connection:
But it would just error, so after reading just about every document that mentions the F3507G card on the internet I realized i needed to tell the card to turn on before i dial it up, and the only way was by using a terminal application before every dial up attempt.
So i wrote up this app to help me, it will turn the device on and off with the click of an icon and it can even start the NMEA output of the GPS form a shortcut.http://members.westnet.com.au/elpamyelhsa/elpamsoft/WWANControl.zip
The Ericsson F3507G card installs as 3 devices (1. Minicard Modem for Dialup Connection (2. Minicard Data Modem (COM8) for a Modem Manager like this little app (3. Minicard GPS Port (COM9) for your GPS app.
I have not tried this with a Bigpond SIM yet, Hope this post helps
Any questions or improvements for my app please feel free to ask
