Seems a good deal for the mifi hardware plus 1 month 5gb contract.

The Huawei E585 wireless modem sends out a Wi-Fi signal to give you internet connection whenever you need it. With your own mobile Wi-Fi connection (known as MiFi®) so you can connect different Wi-Fi enabled devices at once and get fast internet speeds with no wires, no hassles and no need for a Wi-Fi hotspot.

The E585 is really easy to use and fits in your pocket. Just turn on your wireless modem, switch on connection to the Three network, and select the Wi-Fi function. Then choose the Wi-Fi option on whichever device you’re using. There's no need to load any software to get online using the Huawei E585. The wireless modem gives you download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps (megabits per second) and comes with a battery that lets you stay connected to the internet for up to 5 hours.

You can charge the E585 while you're using it and it comes with on-board software that starts each time you connect it to a PC or laptop using the USB cable. The software allows you to manage your Three account, send and receive text messages and change settings for your Wi-Fi connection.

You get £23 quidco too. So would make it £31.99. Cancel after first month and get a three 10gb 1 month rolling contract (from Expansys) for the same £15.

Price?

You can use a micro sim adaptor
#5
Good deal, these cost a lot more than this on ebay!

It is almost 2 month contract as 3 needs 30 days notice to cancel. In addition, my quidco got cancelled when I wrote to 3 to cancel the contract. But 3 called me and gave me an offer of 5 pounds month for 1gb which was sufficient for me.

Sorry are you saying if you cancel immediately you still have to pay two months contract? Does not sound legal!
#9
Could somebody please explain just how this works? Do you need to get a signal from a wireless modem that is connected to a land-line or is this a "stand alone" way to connect to the internet?
#10
I thought the micro sim was for ipads. Can you use this tariff for a mifi dongle?

The mifi hardware uses a 3g connection by taking a sim in the same way as a mobile phone. It then sets up a small wifi network to allow I believe upto 5 computers to use the connection to the internet.

Great bit of kit I got one for the boat, place high as poss for better signal and laptop, itouch, mobiles can connect at once, or use in car and share web.
Beats the dongle which goes in one laptop.

It is clear in three's terms that they need 30 day notice.

It would be helpful if you could provide a link as I find it difficult to believe a company can advertise a 1 month contract and make it impossible to have a 1 month contract by their terms and conditions.

Thanks

On reflection I do not see how cancellation comes into the equation. This is a 1 month contract it should naturally come to an end after a month.

Unfortunately Three's one month contract is actually like everybody's one month rolling contract.

You can put in your cancellation notice on your connection day though so not so much a problem. When you phone up and explain you can get 10gb for the £15 a month then they might just upgrade yours to 10gb anyway.

I'm lacking knowledge of this device; maybe somebody could enlighten me.
I assume this device effectively acts as a wireless access point. However, what disappoints me is the phrase:
"...starts each time you connect it to a PC or laptop using the USB cable...."
One of the potential advantages of this product to me would be having no requirement for a USB cable / dongle / whatever to be hanging out of the side of my laptop.
Can this device be started / used / provide wireless connectivity without a physical connection to a laptop / desktop / any other device?
Thanks.

No it works on battery (about 4 hours), but will also run and charge by USB. It has an on/off button but will auto boot up when plugged into a USB device and sync (so you can update files on a micro sd card for sharing on your mi-fi network).

Basically it's useful if you have more than one device or the signal isn't great in your house/office and you can just pop it on the window sill. You could also use a mains USB power adapter if your leaving it in a semi permanent place.

Or just get a decent phone like HTC desire which will do a better job with its portable wi-fi hotspot function!

So how much will that set you back, and can you use the phone as normal while it's doing this?

Anyone know how long must you maintain the monthly £15 data contract to qualify for the £23ish cashback from quidco / topcashback / other cb sites? Thanks.
#23
This is a good bit of kit and the Three 3G signal has been working well enough where I have travelled with it. This is their normal price though and has been for a while, so not that much of a 'deal'. If you bought an iPad from Curry's however, they knock off £10 or £20 on MiFi devices depending on the package.
#24
Great deal. I want one!

who expired this?
