Activation and Installation
Before you can actually begin using your Alltel USB wireless card, it must be activated. Part of the activation process occurs when you establish an account with Alltel and purchase your wireless card. Depending on the brand of Alltel USB wireless card that you purchase, activation may vary slightly.
If software is included with your Alltel USB wireless card, insert it first. The software will guide you through the installation process. If no software is included, insert your Alltel USB wireless card into an available USB port. For best results, use a port directly connected to your computer instead of a USB hub.
Allow your operating system to recognize and automatically install the card. QuickLink Mobile software will also be installed. Once the installation process is complete, double click the QuickLink Mobile desktop icon to start the application. Select “Tools" and choose “Activation." Type your MDN in the Phone Number field, your MIN in the IMSI(MIN) field and your SID. All the previous numbers are located with your Alltel USB wireless card paperwork.
Press “OK" and wait for your card to be activated. Once a message appears stating the activation was successful, press “OK" again. Your Alltel USB wireless card is now installed and activated.
Please note that if you purchase your Alltel USB wireless card in store, instead of online, your card may already be activated. If you try to connect to the Internet and receive an error about activation, complete the above activation process before trying to connect again.
