Verizon UML290 Cellular Modem

These instructions are specifically for the Verizon 4G modem Pantech UML290.

First, find the phone number associated with the device. One way to find it is to install the VZAccess Manager on a Windows PC and then plug in the device and let it detect the phone number. I also connected from the Windows PC to ensure it was activated but I’m not sure if that is necessary.

Follow the instructions here for how to configure the interface in pfSense: Configuring 3G modems.

Some setups may need to modify the instructions because #777 may not work. Instead try *99***3#. Also for username try devicephone#@vzw4g.com and for password put vzw.
