O2 MiFi Pocket Hotspot and 1GB data £35.10

Gooner77Gooner77

O2 are currently running a half price sale on their PAYG MiFi units when bought with data (the unit on it's own costs £60)

Last month they had this exact same offer and I got this for my parents as I didn't want the hassle of a contract. It then expired before I could post here but it's now back on till the end of this month.

You also get double the data on your first and every third top up.

I went for the £37.65 "Pocket Hotspot including 2GB data" as you get more data on the unit to start with.

Also Quidco tracked at £5, so it should work out to be a net £32.65.

    a few items people may find useful, although O2 say next day delivery - they use royal mail standard post and it can take upto 5 days !
    Also they are locked and have the O2 firmware on, and there is no data usage calculator on these (not on the display or the web interface :( They can be unlocked but not easily and not for free (at least that i have seen)

    If I remember right, I ordered it on Sat 22/12 and received it on Thu 27/12 which was next day, and I don't think it was Royal Mail standard post, as I did call them up to verify as I needed it before the New Years weekend.

    I ordered one and the website states next day, which was what i was expecting, when it did not arrive i called and they said they group these as accessories and therefor send them out by royal mail and delivery times are upto 5 days - arrived 3 days after i ordered it.

    Ordered it on Friday 25th, Recieved today. Delivered by UK Mail.

    I will try to unlock it tonight, DC-unlocker seems a good option. But i will try the following first:

    How much did you pay at CEX? Looking to get one of these from somewhere.

    £38. I wanted the E586 that Three do, but you can only get that on a contract I believe so thought this was the best way. Plus it was the only one in my local store as I needed instant gratification. This O2 one looks just as good though.

    The free method didn't work, some issue with the version not matching, apparently this is possible to bypass reading comments on that webpage, but i didnt have patients to wait for a response to my comment. so i paid the 7EUROS to DC unlocker (6.24GBP) and got it unlocked, no issues, straightforward and simple.

    If one didn't use it for a couple of months - would a top work later on or do the T&C's state that its has to be continually kept in a 'topped up' state as otherwise it will stop working? - I want one for the summer but to be honest I have little use for one now...

    If I get this, unlock it, then use a prepaid 3GB '3' sim in it.....how can I check my usage? Do 3 have something that shows onscreen or is it not that simple? Or do I need to use the 3 version of this device for stuff like that? In other words....will it basically act the same (once unlocked and with a 3 sim inserted) as an official 3 one?
