    I was getting the same thing until I changed the modem number from *99#1 to *99***1# as per this post http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...t=73835&page=3

    Hope that helps!

    It worked! The one difference is that I have an 8310 and got the modem scipts from taniwha.org.uk. Thanks for the useful info!!!

    I have tried the steps, however I am on os 10.5.6 and it's a little different. I am running a bold on a last gen MBP 2.2

    Is there possibly some updated steps for leopard? Thanks!
