Just got my Sierra 598u from Ting in the mail.

And got it working with the Mark IV

here is what you need for the 3g script

*1199:0025*)	echo "Sierra 598u (Ting) detected. Attempting mode switch"
		uci delete network.wan2
		uci set network.wan2=interface
		uci set network.wan2.ifname=ppp0
		uci set network.wan2.proto=3g
		uci set network.wan2.service=cdma
		uci set network.wan2.device=/dev/ttyUSB0
		uci set network.wan2.username=internet
		uci set network.wan2.password=internet
		uci set network.wan2.defaultroute=1
		uci set network.wan2.ppp_redial=persist
		uci set network.wan2.peerdns=0
		uci set network.wan2.dns=8.8.8.8
		uci set network.wan2.keepalive=1
		uci set network.wan2.pppd_options=debug
		uci set network.wan2.pppd_options=noauth
		uci commit network
		usb_modeswitch -v 1199 -p 0025
		sleep 10; rmmod usbserial
		sleep 3; insmod usbserial vendor=0x1199 product=0x0025
		sleep 5; /etc/init.d/firewall disable; /etc/init.d/firewall stop
		logger "3G: firewall stopped"
		iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o 3g-wan2 -j MASQUERADE
		iptables -A FORWARD -s 172.16.42.0/24 -o 3g-wan2 -j ACCEPT 
		iptables -A FORWARD -d 172.16.42.0/24 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -i 3g-wan2 -j ACCEPT

		;;

Also the micro sdhc card slot does work with the Mark IV!

Not sure why but you have to issue

mount /dev/sda /mnt/temp

mount /dev/sda /mnt/temp

Then /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 will show up

any one have an idea?

Price went up because they eliminated the $35 activation fee.

https://ting.com/blog/we-eliminated-the-35-activation-fee/

Looks like netzero is 200MB plan is only free for the first year in the fine print.

Access to the Free plan from a specific device expires (and may not be renewed) twelve (12) months from the date of initial registration, or upon upgrading to a paid plan.

you welcome.

Just need to work on the micro sdhc card to auto mount on boot.

I'll tell you first hand that Ting's customer service beats any other communication provider I've ever dealt with. I'm pretty sure they would appreciate your 'how-to', as they said they receive tons of requests for instructions on getting the device to work w/ *nix.

I could use a little direction in the matter myself.

Good to know that Ting is that good. :D

Sprint has a linux guide for this device, located here. (The device you get is a sprint card, no Ting logo :( )

http://www6.sprint.com/downloads/linux/pdfs/Sprint_Mobile_broadband_Setup_Guide_for_Linux_1.4.2.pdf

And a full linux distro will auto mount the sdhc card. (The Pineapple Mark IV wont auto mount it, have to give it a few commands to do it)

Let me know if you need some more help.
