    ERROR WHILE SETTING CDMA LOCK

  • semidivine Apr 18, 2009

    There are no clear instructions on how to set up the um175 usb modem on a mac using the internal drivers. There is nothing on the Verizon site at all, and a lot of vague information elsewhere... all anyone says is that mac makes it easy. I don't know what name or password to put in the network pane of the system preferences. Can anyone help?

  • semidivine Apr 27, 2009

    jdbliss I was looking for a solution without using VZ Access Manager. The instruction booklet for the um175 even says I don't need to use the Verizon software and can use built in software on the Mac, but it doesn't explain how.

This solution is verified with 10.5.6
You kinda need VZ Access but only for the activiation of the modem.
1. Download VZAccess for your mac and activate your modem, just connect once with it. It will go through and activate your modem. You only have to do this once. 2. Uninstall VZAccess, I believe it is in the Help Menu of the application itself. 3. Reboot you computer. 4. Plug in your Um175, go to System Preferences/Network and if it asks you to add the Pantech USB Modem say yes, may require password. 5. Select the Pantech USB Modem and enter the following: configuration: default
Telephone Number: #777
Account Number 10digit telephone number plus vzw3g.com, ie: 5558675309@vzw3g.com
Password: vzw
6. click on Advanced 7. under the Modem Tab: Vendor: Sierra
model: CDMA
Check Enable Error correction and compression in modem
Dial Mode: Ignore Dial Tone when Dialing
Dialing: Tone
Sound Off
Click Ok then Apply and your Modem should not be setup without VZAccess Software installed.

I was having bad problems with this device, I installed the VZ manager just like the solution said but the error I encountered was verizon charging me for the program after the trial period was over and the device never connected to the internet. If this has happened to you, just remember that this is some sort of malware. I called Apple and a service rep helped me through my problem. I'm not saying that this was my only alternative but I was so frustrated with it, and the knowledge i receivd from them was very helpful. So without further adue, Here's what I did. First I uninstalled the VZ manager, Second thing I did was backup my MAC to another drive, The third thing was to downgrade to Snow leopard because that is what my system came with. Here is a guide. My problem was the device was not recognized by OS X Lion. Apple informed me that the update for this issue will be posted in the near future (no exact dates). After all was done, I inserted the Pantech modem UM175 and followed the device instructions for installiation. Everything went smooth, (in OS X Lion the device never showed the Pantech Modem) this is why I had to downgrade my system. The last thing you need to do is restore from the backup. Now your system should be just as it was before, and the Pantech Modem will show in the network connections. You need to manually input the settings for the device through the carrier you purchased it from. Now you should be able to connect through your settings. (YOU DON'T NEED TO CONNECT THROUGH THE QUICKLINK MOBILE). This whole process only took me 30 minuates to complete. (NOTE: The device simply says OS X 10.4 and greater, This is NOT TRUE, I was running 10.7.0 and was not successful in installing it). I hope this information helps all, Its free because I have already paid for it. Wish you well

While tring to install my UM175 modem, I get a message that say OS not supported. What do I do?


The Verizon UM175 installation supports WinXP, WinVista, and Win7 (and you're certainly running one of these three), so the only possible problem you might be having is that you may be running Windows XP, but you're running a Service Pack level that is no longer supported. Most software packages require WinXP to have at least Service Pack 2 installed, and many installations are now requiring WinXP to have at a minimum Service Pack 3.

To determine what Service Pack you're running:
START > Control Panel > System > General (tab)

Microsoft offers "Service Packs", consisting of (free) packages of updates and bug fixes for its operating systems, which are released riddled with bugs, omissions and security holes.
To install the Windows XP service packs that may be needed to allow the Verizon UM175 modem-related software installation to proceed, visit Microsoft at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322389

This Microsoft Knowledge Base article mentions Service Packs 1, 1a, 2, and 3, but there is also a 4th.
Windows Vista also has service packs (there are two). If you're running WinVista, the Verizon software may require both. For these Service Packs, visit Microsoft at:

We borrowed a verizon usb720 aircard from a friend. Can you install and use it without the cd?


If its a product from verizon then it is linked to a network. What this means is that it has a phone number attached to it which has been programmed on the cd. It is an aircard and, I am sure, not a plug and play device (a plug and play device installs as soon as you connect to a computer without a cd) . Get the installation cd from your friend and if he/she doesnt have one, take it to any nearby verizon office to have the software installed.

Hello. I own a UM175 Pantech Alltel aircard and I've heard that, using your computer, you can turn the aircard into a wireless router that can be used to connect to the internet with various devices. I...


The UM175 is not an access point itself, you could plug it into a Craddlepoint and then connect your other devices to the Craddlepoint. Testing was down with a UM175 and a Craddlepoint here:

If your other devices happen to be computers, you can setup connection sharing and use instructions found here:

I have a trendnet wireless router tew 432brp, a new hp windows 7 laptop, and old xp laptop and i want to share the connection with my verizon um175 aircard. this has worked for several years with the old...


The router connects computers together . You are using a windows 7 p.c and connecting it to an internet connection via a usb verizon um175 aircard.
I think you need to share the internet connection with the rest of the network and may need to feed the ethernet cable into the feed port of the router. I have not done this before but logically the windows 7 computer would have to act as a gateway to the internet.

https://www.ibvpn.com/billing/knowledgebase/53/Internet-Connection-Sharing-on-Windows-7.html

Note the default gateway is going to have to be the windows 7 ip address on the other computers
You may need to set the ip address on windows 7 to a static address and then change the dhcp server settings default gateway and also increase the first address to not include the windows 7 ip address or the routers ip address in the lease range for shcp.

I have a pantech um 175 usb wireless modem and I don't have the set up software to activate the usb modem. I need the progamming software so I can access the internet.


That so-called "solution" is totally worthless--the link goes to Pantech PHONE website, which has absolutely NOTHING in the way of downloads, for modems or anything else. As for you, Mr. ADRideau, why don't you bother to check your link before posting it?
Sadly, I don't have any answer to the problem, wish I did because my Verizon software won't recognize my UM175.

I have an older computer that does not have a wireless card, but my internet is through a verizon um175 air card. i have gotten 10 different answers, and none work. 3 different answers from verizon alone...


Yes you can. Make sure that you disable DHCP in the lan settings section in the router. Use the computer without wireless card as the server, the router will be install in this computer. i have an air card with Sprint and I'm using Encore router and my Wii, and 3 more computer can connect without any problem.

I have the same issue that everyone else is having


Dear,

This router is compatible with the modem UM175 but from the manufacturer Pantech for the ISP Verizon. The modem for this router is ISP specific modem and will not work with any other ISP.

This modem is incompatible with this router. Sorry!!!!

Check the list yourself:
