it gets worse: when I try tethering my iphone to the MBP via USB eventually the whole system crashes.
There seems to be a problem with the USB controllers or something.
How can I find the crash reports so that I can post them? OS X generated two of them which may provide insight to the technically minded.
Found a way around the problem, not ideal but it works.
I downloaded the Vodafone drivers here: http://www.business.vodafone.com/site/bus/public/enuk/support/10productsupport/laptop_connectivity/40_software/software/10_latest/pmac.jsp
Installed them which in turn adds the modem into your Network Services in System Prefs > Network.
From there you can manually set up the 3 Mobile account. Under the ZTEUSBModem add the following info:
Telephone number: *99#
Account Name: username
Click connect and it should do the trick.
I deleted all the vodafone software off after and it still works fine. *do not uninstall though or you'll lose the drivers*
Hope that helps.
100% mate, works a treat, cheers
Brand new to Mac (previously WinXP) and was a bit annoyed at the 3 USB dongle not playing ball with my shiny new "toy"
Other forums I have looked through just blaming 2011 hardware "issues" (without solution) even though it is actually recognised in Profiler.
Anyway good to see there is an easy workaround and even better, once Vodafone software (more importantly - drivers) installed the "3 Connect Setup" software then recognises it and manual configuration is unnecessary
