Ive been using 3 mobile bb for a year and travel all over the uk and have found the signal very good and far in excess of o2. Usually get 3.5g with 3
#3
Yeah I get a signal no problem.

Best way to use the 3 network for broadband is to throw away the sim you get with these and order a normal free '3' sim from three. You'll then have the option to select the 'monthly internet' option @ £5 instead of the expensive 'mobile broadband' option once you put some credit on your account :thumbsup:

All you have to do is create an account with http://www.3dongle4free.co.uk and they will confirm your email address and password they will also send you a code with instructions on how to get the dongle for £4.99 (its only the postage you have to pay)

We got the £4 95 dongle and signal is great ,much better than the o2 which we found was rubbish.

Unlock it for €15 here: http://www.dc-unlocker.com
#8
You can unlock them for free

Just google it
#9
I am interested but ignorant about this - what does unlocking do and why would I want it?
#10
if you unlock it you can put a sim card from any company ie 02, vodafone any use their mobile broadband, if you have free access to the internet on your blackberry or i phone i think you can just put it in, but this would brake your fair use contract and they could cut you off:whistling:

Or you can buy a sim when you are abroad and have cheap internet to use whilst away either on business or holiday

I use a MASmovil sim in spain and pay 0.08 of a euro per mb ( 6.5p approx ) , if you use a uk sim it would be £'s per mb

I don't think you'll get it for long though, its been posted that o2 are cutting people off even with light usage as they can easily tell it's not being used in an iphone.

Good while it lasts though.

MFR PART CODE : ZTEMF627

Technical

•Dongle: Huawei E169G

I spotted the above inconsistancy in the description so I called them to clarify. They have confirmed it IS A ZTEMF627 NOT A HUAWEI E169G.

I've bolded and highlighted the above as it may be an important factor for others, as it is for me.

The OP/MOD may want to edit the title/description for the benefit of others.BB have said they will correct the mistake, but its still the same to date.
