Novatel U720 by Sprint Is Intel Mac Compatible
Apple, Sprint or ????
When the Novatel Ovation U720 initially shipped, Sprint claimed that it was "Mac Compatible". That announcement was premature. Since, Sprint doesn't have native Mac OS software, they rely on Apple to provide drivers. Currently, Apple has yet to release updated drivers that support the U720. A clever user on EVDOforums.com named "Mac.Intosh" released drivers that allow the U720 to work on Macs :) We have tested these drivers and THEY WORK and we will help you if you have any questions (only if you purchase your U720 from us).
