Brilliant price on this. Requires additional initial £10 topup if collecting instore.

This T-Mobile pay as you go USB modem gives you truly mobile broadband thats easy to use and doesn't commit you to a long term contract. It means freedom from wires and hotspots, and access to the Internet at breakneck speeds.

The T-Mobile 120 Mobile Broadband modem is so easy to use - just plug it in, it self installs the connection manager and all you need to do is hit connect in the utility & off you go.

Another bonus is that it doubles up as a memory stick, so you don't need to carry a separate one around. All you need is a microSD card to put in the card slot on the side (the 120 supports up to 4GB memory cards) and you can store all the files you need on your stick as well as being able to connect to the internet - how convenient is that?

Start surfing the web whenever you want. And because this is pay as you go internet surfing, youll only pay for the days you choose to. Its that easy to get truly mobile broadband.

The UKs first pay-per-day mobile broadband service
Choice of 3 convenient options with single day, week or 30 day.
Unlimited* web access on the move (*subject to a fair usage policy)
Plug and Play USB connectivity
Broadband speeds up to 3.6 Mbps
PC and Mac compatible
£2 gets you connected for a day
£7 gets you connected for 7 days
£15 gets you connected for 30 days

Unlockable?


yes you can use the same files that unlocked the MF627 from the Three £4.95 deal, the T-Mobile 120 is just a rebadged MF626. The files can be downloaded from here

Instructions can be found inside the RAR archive along with the necessary files.

This is an instore collection only as a £10 top up is required

[COLOR="Red"]Special Offer - £8.49 when purchased with £10 airtime (Available Instore via Collect @ Store only, total price including £10 compulsory top up is £18.49)[/COLOR]

unlocking a mobile phone means it can be used on other networks but i'm guessing unlocking this dongle means it can only accept other networks PAYG mobile broadband sim cards. is that correct?

what speeds do people actually get and what is the download limit?

I probably will steer clear of this for the time being because I was dissapointed by the slow speeds from my dads "3" mobile broadband dongle. he says it's better than expensive hotel wifi, and I tend to agree.

50p cheaper than CarphoneWarehouse http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/broadband/mobile-broadband/buy/TMOBILE-USB-MODEM-TMOBU-WEB10 I wonder if either of these are unlocked dongles

CPW = £18.99 with £10 credit
PCW = £18.49 with £10 credit

Great! Store didn't seem to know anything about it, so just paid £8.49 for the dongle, topped up £5 online and used £2 of that on their "pay for a day and get a month" deal!!
Cheers,
Stevie

I bought one of these from 3 and the reception was terrible at home. The coverage map showed to me in store before I bought it was ok. It would drop off and then when connected would be very slow. I managed to get a refund eventually

I recently tried a vodafone one and the speed and connection is also very unreliable and almost unusable. The coverage checker shows full 3g and mobile broadband and standard services. I would say that a dial-up connection would be better (I know that's not mobile though but for home use)
Maybe it is better to use it outdoors or close to a window for better signal? :thinking:

Has anyone else had similar issues with mobile broadband when used at home?

All sims are exactly the same. If you unlock the dongle, it will work with any 3g sim.

Reception i've found with these things is only really average tho. Never been shocked by the speed they work at.

I have to say the prices look a bit expensive - £2 a day or £15 a month is ridiculous .
suspended#11
Bought one of these last week. Wouldn't recommend them. They are unbelievably slow, and they are content locked, so you can't even go on sites like Youtube until you phone up T Mobile and give them your credit card details or take your passport instore to a T Mobile shop.

showing as £19.99 ??

I am sure I saw this same deal in store at Coulby Newham Tesco Extra last night too. £8.49 with additional £10 top up required.

I have the 3 dongle, and it locks my PC up after being online 5 or 10 minutes. speed was OK when it worked though. Not much help from 3's support either.
#17
I had the 3 dongle and the could never get online and when it fianlly did it died and was mega slow.
complained for 18months to 3 and never even gotoffered a refund cancelled my contract for the familys phones as wellas the dongle absolutley rubbish.
#18
Bought one for less than £20 from tesco direct, & used a code for 2000 clubcard points. Not sure if the code's still valid.
#19

It should work, although it's against your T&C's for your contract. You may also find that the speed is limited to 3G (384Kbs)
#21
Still on website, but reserved it to collect, got to PC World Pin Mill Manchester, and they couldnt put the deal through on their till system.

Was coming up at £19.99 without any credit... Going to phone customer services tomo and will see what happens before expiring this deal

Could anyone confirm this? So would any 3g sim would that incluse my regular mobile phone sim would work?

Were moving house and will be without internet for a while so was going to get one of these, would be nice if I once I had used up the £10 top up I could put my regular sim in it and use my mobile phone contract to take out internet? (even if its really slow, just for emergencies)
