3G Huawei E220 & simyo.de on mac

Plug the modem and launch the MobileConnect application which is installed inside the E220.

Create a new profile for simyo.de:


telephone number of *99#
Access Point Name: internet.eplus.de
IP-Adresse: dynamic
Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:
Account name: simyo
password: simyo

Click "Connect" and you should be online. After I found these configuration data with google, it works the first time. If you have a problem or a suggestion, leave a comment. Remember this config will only work in Germany with simyo.de

I am now ready to work with Rails on rails ;-) I will be indeed traveling a lot with the ICE, the German high speed train, which might not be as fast as the French TGV but it is very comfortable and has electric plugs in all the seats.

In this carbon junky world, I really hope that Copenhagen 2009 will enforce some regulations on plane transports. Instead of stupid competition between EU states railways, EU should also learn from the UK Rails privatization disaster. It would be so nice if the next generation of Europeans could travel on high speed rails transports with a public owned, interconnected, affordable and fast European rails network...
