    Because you ordered two of them.
    The authorizations are to check if there is enough room to charge that amount. It will expire in a few days. It a way to check the charge card is good to use by them. If you haven't downgraded by end of trial, then they will charge for plans/services.

    @‌"Michael Del Valle" Your charges are actually holds to see if your credit card is good and will be refunded.

    When you check out, it told you that it would check if you have at least that about on that card. It is just a temporary hold. It lasted a day for me.

    I couldn't get the drivers for the U600 from the link on the card that was sent. I got the drivers here:

    http://shop2.sprint.com/en/software_downloads/mobile_broadband/sprint_u600.shtml

    ...but the software is causing OSX Mavericks to crash. I was able to get it working in Ubuntu 14.10 very easily using this post:

    http://askubuntu.com/a/230364

    ...then rebooting my computer, and clicking on the broadband card in networking and set it up for Sprint. (not that anyone else will use this info :-P).

    @Adolfo Galvan‌ , think for the information. I downloaded the same software and it will not work at all on the new OS for my Mac. Thank for the link for the Ubuntu 14.10, I have that also, so I use the Ubuntu with the stick.

    @njfulwider5 ,

    That is the one I am using. Works with no issues.

    The device I was sent had a led out, so it took me a couple of tries before I figured it out since there is a bit of contradictory info on this device. But, it does work minus the 4G indicator light not lighting. It does work fine on wimax so no issues on my end.

    @M.A. II Lopez

    I will try it on an 8.1 machine later tonight and let you know if and how I got it working. As of this post I only have 4 pc's here with 3 different Windoze OS's. I have it working fine on Vista, I'll go try it on a 7 now and see how it does. My 7 machine has a multiple boot with a few diff flavors of linux also, but I saw someone else got it running on linux so I probably won't mess with that unless someone would really like me to.
  • Daniel S3Daniel S3 Posts: 112FreedomPop Newbie
    Working fine on 7. I didn't try to find a closer or better server, this was the first one that popped up.

    Yeah, i got it to work on my vysta, but that will turn Win 10 when available. Yes NJ... I downloaded drivers from there. Windows RT is not supported. If it were it would be in the drivers pakage. Though I wonder if it would work on Surface RT if it had Win 8? Probably not since the message was "windows rt does not support this device" I did the troubleshoot and so forth, no deal!. Tried it on my chinese tab, 3g light lid up, but no internet. Tablet is in repair now due to lcd issue, I will try it when I get it back, I was too concerned about the lcd issue to mess with the rest at that point.
