Windows 7: Pantech UM 150 Driver?

Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate
 
 

I am still having problems with this. The VZW access manager quits out with unsupported OS. Then I tried to install the drivers here while the UM150 was plugged in and thought I got them to all install manually. However, they came through as 32 bit drivers and VZW still couldn't recognize the modem. Thoughts? Help...

So, the drivers actually did work even though they ended up being 32 bit. The only thing that doesn't work in Windows 7 is the VZW manager. To enable the card you have to go through the networking part of control panel so I just put a shortcut to this device on my desktop. BTW, install is putting the device in and then going through the ? in Device Manager as someone mentioned earlier and updating drivers by pointing to the driver directory multiple times. Good luck.

Try changing the compatibility to XP sp2.

I've installed all the drivers I could find and Windows 7 Update Advisor still says “Not compatible with W7″. What version drivers do I need to get my Pantech UM150 to work? I have an HP Pavillion dv7 1285dx notebook.

Verizon says: "In the coming days, we will be provide details about Verizon product compatibility with Windows 7." I have W7 on pre-order, but currently using Vista Home Premium.

I installed 7 and the device manager doesn't show any drivers for the Pantech modem. When I try to Update the drivers, it is looking for a .inf file. It actually doesn't show the Pantech under modems. It is in Other devices. It show up under Modems in Vista though. How do I install this modem. I also get the unsupported OS when I install the VZAccess software. A hardware search doesn't work either.

I used the latest version of VZAccess and it installs drivers that show as AMD64(free) and I can't get it to install any others. Of the drivers I downloaded from here, there are ones other than the AMD64 ones in the folders, but it won't let me install them. It says I have the latest ones. If I un-install them, I don't have access to install the new ones.

Has anybody gotten the UM150 work correctly. It now says device is not inserted and keeps trying to configure it.

UMB150 DOES work in win7 home 64-bit

All I did was download the correct version of VZAccess from VZAccess Manager. Before you plug in the um150, run this software and follow its instructions. It automatically installed the device drivers and the program. Works better and faster than it ever did when using the Alltel software.

The Alltel UM150 will not work with Verizon. Well, it will, but you will be charged $20/Mb. I have to get a free with rebate Verizon UM175.

Yes, the UMB150 DOES work with win7!!!

If the um 150 didn't work with vzaccess manager and verizon, then how am I able to be online with it to type this post? I was even advised by a verizon rep to keep the 150 because it maintains my unlimited plan that I had with alltel.

In fact, I've been using my alltel um150 with verizon since they took over, no issues. Still costs me the same flat rate. Anyone trying to force you to upgrade to the um175 is either clueless or is just trying to lock you into a 2-yr deal again.

Check out the above links and you might be surprised to find that herb and I are correct.
