I may be confused but [url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.currys.co.uk%2Fgbuk%2F3g-uk-ltd-e585-mi-fi-take-it-away-mobile-broadband-5gb-allowance-07203751-pdt.html]http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/3g-uk-ltd-e585-mi-fi-take-it-away-mobile-broadband-5gb-allowance-07203751-pdt.html[/url] ????

That is for the monthly rolling contract. This post is for no contract PAYG including device and 3Gb data valid for 3 months from startup.

That one has a 30 day contract at 15.99 per month - the other lasts 3 months - ideal for small time users or unlocking to use another sim in it.

can you use this without the sim, just to make a wifi network to share/stream files?
#6
Good deal for one of the best bits of kit on the market!
#7
Not sure about that. Uses the 3G network to access internet. Have been using it today and it's been great.

I Bought one of these and it has proved to be a fantastic bit of kit. Unlocked i took it on holiday and picked up a local mobile bband sim and stuck it in. These meant we could use our iphones and ipad without running up stupid bills.

Surfed the internet on ipod touch for about 15 min, downloaded emails, updated 3 different news apps. Used 2.8Mb. only 2997Mb left.:D

Great idea. Have been stung for an extra £120 on my monthly bill a few years back.
#11
These are £71.99 both instore & online,this deal doesn't exist nationwide,

if the OP bought it it was likely just that particular store that were offering it at that price or it was a mistake

Price printed and advertised on the rail £57.45. Took it to the desk and scanned through at said price. Receipt also describes item and price. Hope someone else finds the deal. It's why I posted it.

How did you get it unlocked, I tried on ebay but the program couldn't do it and had to get a refund - the process was a bit carp to be honest, you had to keep restarting the program after it crashes and guess at settings..

You need to get the log file using psas as the seller probably told you but if you cant get it to run,then your not going to be able to do it the free way
#15
Cheers. Yes, I think I used the psas software, it seems not all can be unlocked the free way then. Will have to find another way.

Funny how these have gone up in price a lot, were around £40-50 a while back.

Paid for unlock options,either a shop or posting away, or Dc unlocker 15 euro or zibri's blog ,not sure how much he's charging now but probably a bit cheaper. Or keep working at the psas!

i found that the monthly 5gb was at £54.99 but the 3gb one was still at £71.99

Available direct from 3 here for £71.99 including the 3GB SIM but possible £12.50 cashback through Quidco or £12.12 Topcashback should bring the net price below £60.

I bought one via Topcashback (as they specifically say "This includes MIFI PAYG packages.") and it has tracked and been confirmed. Quidco has a separate page for 3 Mobile Broadband where it says £12.50 for PAYG - no reason to think that won't include MIFI but for the sake of 38p I preferred to play extra safe.

I presume you know the next step is to find a cheap source of PAYG Mobile Broadband SIMs for when the one included runs out. (My experience of T-Mobile and Vodafone phone SIMs in an unlocked broadband dongle was that they worked - but were so slow compared with the 3 broadband SIM.) 3 charges £20.99 for a direct replacement but these are available cheaper elsewhere - amazon, eBay and online retailers. The price fluctuates a lot - I paid £7.30 in mid-April via amazon marketplace but it was nearly £13 earlier today - google may find a better deal. Sellers seem to run out of stock quickly, so no point posting specifics here. (Unlike a phone, there's no obvious reason to keep the original SIM. It's cheaper to replace it than top it up.) The 3GB/3 month PAYG SIM from 3 Mobile seems the best deal unless you have local reception issues with 3 - but they seem generally good on broadband coverage.

As rosco123 points out, the SIM gives you a lot of capacity for browsing and email. On the other hand, if you lend it to a younger member of the family for the stuff [i]they[i] do (online gaming, I think)... well, my 2.9-odd GB got used up in a day!

P.S. the MIFI itself is brilliant for what it offers in a small package. Not as fast as my regular home broadband but perfectly useable. I sometimes use it at home anyway, just because I can!

3 also have the 12month - 12Gb data offer for £52.00 or thereabouts. Would hate to be on a contract and go over my quota. The cost penalties l've seen have been over 10p a Mb.

1) Why are these still so popular? A basic Android phone (e.g. Orange San Francisco) can be converted into a mobile hotspot, ok it may cost a bit more than the mifi but you also get a LOT more for your money...
Unless I'm missing something I'd love to be corrected/enlightened.

2) Still, if I were to get a MiFi, does anyone know if you can do port foprwarding so that I can connect an IP Cam thus having a mobile CCTV? (yes I know about the heavy data)

Agree with you. I was also looking into getting a MiFi until someone (like you) suggested to use my mobile (WM 6.5) as a hotspot (which I didn't know), had a play with it and worked a treat, So it saved me a few quids in getting one of these. My phone is already unlocked anyway, so I can pick up a cheap PAYG data SIM deal alone.

Hot though for the deal, as it is cheapest since I've last checked.

Did anyone find this deal in-store?

Yeah - I got one today at this price in store - robrayston store - Glasgow. Thanks for the heads up - been looking for one of these and second hand prices on eBay are rediculous.
