Help me understand Watcher

I'm 9 days older than God, so be patient with me.

Windows 7 64-bit
Firefox
Smartview 598U ver.1.20.0016.0

Having to do research since Sprint is no help.

On Jan 9th, my Smartview started switching to 1xRTT. Read that I could download Watcher_2266 to lock it onto EVDO.

Downloaded Watcher, saved it on my desktop and not sure what to do next. Do I uninstall Smartview, then install Watcher? And does Watcher replace Smartview or do I reinstall it?

Appreciate any help, Karen

SmartView and Watcher can co-exist, you just use one or the other. With Watcher you can set the modem in EVDO-Only mode by clicking up top on menu>Options>Network>Network Mode and selecting EVDO Only in the drop down box. Check OK and let the modem configure before you restart the connection.
