T-Mobile Web 'n' Walk [sic] stick manager on OS X (and why you don't need it)

If you're on T-Mobile Web 'n' Walk on a Mac, you probably use the imaginatively-named "stick manager" to connect to the Internet. While it is a remarkable piece of software engineering (with helpful alerts like "Success to Connect!", "Fail to Connect!", and, my favorite, "Success to Disconnect"), it is actually an entirely unnecessary bit of bloatware.

To connect without it, simply open System Preferences, select the HUAWEI Mobile device, and enter the phone number *99# in the Telephone Number section, click Apply, and then Connect.

Voilà, you're online!

Or, as they say it in T-Mobile speak: Success to Connect!
