Sprint SmartView Driver Update

Many tech savvy people nowadays consider mobile internet as their lifeline to the world. For the past few years, they rely on Sprint to provide their mobile data connection. For most users, the speed and coverage they received from EVDO rev A capable data card has been satisfying.

A main reason why many people chose Sprint is that it offers “unlimited” data. Verizon, on the other hand had redefined “unlimited” to equal 5GB. Soon Sprint had mandated a 5GB usage cap as well and therefore, Sprint and Verizon have started to charge overages to anyone who exceeds the 5GB limit.

Now, Sprint has advanced in limiting their customers in using their service. The SmartView 1.20.0016 driver update has no release notes or new features. But after you install the software, Sprint has the gall that keeps you from using the connection sharing feature in Mac OS.

The latest SmartView update even disconnects the EVDO connection if a local Wi-Fi connection is established to another device.

Luckily, Mac OS has a supported built-in driver for many EVDO cards. When using the Apple-provided driver, things will keep on working normally. On some laptops, users don’t mind installing Sprint’s SmartView driver updates and are still able to connect, share data, and use Wi-Fi without having much trouble.

Sprint SmartView is developed by Sprint and is used by Software Informer users. The most popular version of this product is 2.5. Executable files included in this program are RunElevated.exe, SprintSV.exe. Reviews for this driver update are not yet released by the informers.

In the meantime, you might want to use its previous version 1.20.0016. You can download this software from this site and create a high-speed Internet connection for your computer anywhere on the Sprint 3G network with your Smartphone as Modem Plan.
