Using Your Treo 755p as a modem on Mac OS X with Sprint PCS is silly easy

Look, I know that anyone caught walking around with a Palm/sprint phone today looks like a dinosaur but when you're on the road or when your cable internet flakes (and it will) you just can't beat USB Modem and a Treo or Centro on Sprint.

Gizmodo themselves have confirmed the speed and just look at how easy the setup is:

After installing USB Modem, activating it, and plugging your phone into your Mac go to your System Preferences and your computer will see the new modem right away.
