Dear LazyWebs: Wanted, a simple USB GPRS modem
I want a simple do-hicky that is just a USB GPRS modem. I plug a SIM into it, and it presents either a USB network interface, or else a USB serial PPP interface that Mac Leopard already knows how to dial out on.

No special host drivers.

Does such a thing exist?

Most USB broadband cards are Leopard-okay, be they GPRS or EVDO based. Yes, they act like a USB-Serial adapter that a PPP system can talk to. I've only personally used the EVDO Rev.A and Rev.0 cards, but the GPRS ones are similar. Just plug and go.

Most have 'special' host drivers but you don't need to use them; Leopard just works with them. Most. Only real way to know is to try one out.
