So when I started my Challenge to Cell C, I did a little research as well. Found out that they all love MDMA on their PCs but have nothing for the Mac.



Download for PowerPC
Download for Intel
Download for Universal

Tested on Huawei and ZTE, Snow Leopard (Intel), Leopard (PPC and Intel) and Tiger (PPC).

UPDATED to reflect HIGs.

Only tested on Huawei, Snow Leopard, Intel. Will Test on Leopard (PPC and Intel) and Tiger (PPC) with ZTE on Monday since those machines are at my office.

Still in beta though and some things need work like interface (not at all Human Interface Guidelines yet), icon, other things.
Thanks GreGorGy! Working fine on Leopard 10.5.8 on PPC.

UPDATED: Better error management; ZTE works except ME throughput is non-existent (for now).

Some Mobile Phones may also respond correctly.

Thanks - keen on knowing which equipment works (so far Hauwei E1820, K3565 and ZTE seem to work).

It also works on some cellphones when tethered via cable or bluetooth.

The throughput is primarily for troubleshooting at this stage and on the Huaweis I am crashing after a while - if you experience this, please let me know.

Anything for Ubuntu 10?
I wish - sorry, my abilities in this regard are limited to Mac OS X. I did try but getting my software to recognise any serial other than ttyS0-3 is a mission. Maybe when I have a few days to spare...

UPDATE: I have changed it to be more Apple App like and made it shareware for users outside of South Africa (in SA, no charge - it should just be registered). If not, please drop me a PM or something.

Features:
• If CellID and RNC are available, you can get see them on Google maps.
• USSD and SMS
• The usual profile mentioned above

Update: 1.4 Beta now has Statistics support for Huawei. Note that for these stats to be as close to accurate as the system can manage, mAcme must be run once every session at least. Or used in place of dashboard. Download links are the same. Update does nothing for ZTE modems.
