My daughter is using a Cricket UTStarcom UM100c USB Modem with her Dell/Wondoze computer. After several virus attacks in the last two month she has had it with this computer and is moving to Mac again. She asked me to see if this usb modem would work on my MBP. The instructions for installation said it work with Mac OS 10.3.9 and I am running 10.4.11, so I figure no problem.

Following the instructions, I can't get past the install off the CD because it is an .exe file. The instructions also say...there is only 1 cd and all the software needed is on it. I am stymied. I go to the Cricket site and it says system requirement for this unit are OS 10.3.9 (Leopard). Now I am sure there is an idiot here and it is not me.

Questions...has anyone used this unit on a mac?
Am I supposed to be able to open .exe files?
Do you think if I take all this stuff up to an Apple Store they will check out the usability on a new mac running Leopard?

I appreciate any suggestions.

Hi, I was having this problem tonight, too. Go to the Cricket page about the modem at http://www.mycricket.com/cricketdatacards/details/um100usbpromo and click on the "Instructions" tab. Under "Downloads/Resources," click "get the Mac operating system software." That should do it.
