    Guess no one else has tried this. VZ was not much help and said its not supported. I figured as much but thought someone may have gotten it to work.

    Several other people have tried it. If I recall correctly, the conclusion was Android lacks the necessary drivers to support the modem.

    OK I figured as much. The 3g would be nice but I don't need another data plan bill :)
