Help with LG 5350
Authored by: fyrefly on Feb 20, '03 11:20:02PM

I purchase a USB data cable for my LG 5350 from RadioShack, I then plugged the phone to the cable then the cable to my iBook. I opened Network Preference, then went to Network port configurations to see if it detected the phone but it didn't. Anyone managed to get an LG 5350 to work on Mac OS X 10.2.x, please post. I am running an iBook 600 with Mac OS X 10.2.4.

PS. I used USB Prober, it sees the cable (Prolific Technology Inc.) but not the phone.

Help with LG 5350

aparently, using the lg 5350 as a wireless modem with mac osx 10.2.4 is more complicated than doing so with certain other phones (such as the sanyo 4900), i spent a good deal of time frustrated today until i finally got it just right. here's are the steps you'll need to follow:

1. you will need to change your phone's settings:
menu > settings > setup > data in > method
the method must be changed from "usb" to "rs-232c (com port)"

2. next you must download the mac driver for the LG 5350. it is available at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/maccellphone/files/RadioShackCableDriverPL2303.zip

3. connect the cable to the phone and the usb port, i don't believe that it matters in which order they are connected.

4. update the system preferences:
system preferences > network >

location: you can name this anything you'd like, i chose "sprint"
show: usbserial

modem>
modem:au cdmaOne C413S by Sony
check "show modem status in menu bar"

ppp>
telephone number: #777
ppp options> *leave ALL boxes unchecked*

"apply now"

5. on the menu bar, select "usbserial" then "connect"

feel free to repost or email me with any questions..
