AT&T software is adequate for most users. Easy setup and "Presto", internet.
One thing to note; The vendor I purchased this from advertised it as new but it arrived in non-manufacturer packaging (some generic cell phone package) and was without the USB extension and display mounting clip that would have otherwise been provided with a new and manufacturer packaged item.
My only problem is with AT&T. I had a regular data plan for my smart phone and hoped that I could use this with my sim while I was on vacation. Nope. It worked but AT&T sends you a bunch of messages saying that you need a different plan (extra $45 / month), and then changed my plan to accomidate the modem and not my phone. Once I call AT&T they restored my orginal plan.
That said, if you want celular modem coverage, you need the modem and another Data plan.
Obviously, I knew I'd need a SIM card and service, but was unclear about the steps I'd need to take to get going.
Once I tracked down someone at AT&T who knew what they were talking about, it was clear sailing.
The other issue I'd point out is that the software (drivers and AT&T Communication Manager) needs to be "installed" before every use (including the PC waking up from hibernation).
This may be a quirk of the Windows 7 (64 bit) I was running on. I have not looked into this further, so this problem may have a simple resolution. For now, I've chosen to live with it.
Bottom line, I have no regrets about this purchase; it was a worthwhile investment.
