Perfect replacement for Qualcom Gobi 2000 – Ericsson F3507G 3G Module for IBM Thinkpad/Dell Reviews

posted by carestad on 11/04/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- More stable connection than Gobi 2000. Doesn't disconnect and stay offline for several minutes when just losing the signal for a couple of seconds. - Cheap. - Easy to install and replace. - Drivers built in to the Linux kernel.
Cons:
- A bit tricky in Windows (drivers). - Needs a lot of hacking to get GPS working in Linux (haven't tried in Windows). - Haven't managed to send SMS via gammu/wammu (seems like a bug).
Other:
None.
Bottomline:
Love it. Unless you really need to use the GPS or send texts, it's perfect. I only use it for surfing.
