I have one for £25 still in original packaging and "as new" condition. Bought it as PAYG but don't get a great signal at home. No SIM included but they were giving them away free a couple of weeks ago if you text a shortcode advertised in national press, not sure if that's still happening though.

Let me know if you're interested and how you'd like to pay.

sorry i have not replied sooner, I am definatly interested, will have to find out where to get a 3 sim from cheap or free though.

Can pay via paypal or BT if you dont mind sending first. My feedback speaks for itself and have helped quite a few people get off the mark with feedback by requesting they send first.

Let me know

lol, you know what, this is about the only thing i am not clued up on. I really have no idea, I thought the dongle was just the same as a mobile phone that supports 3g and connects to the 3g network the same way a phone does, and a normal pay and go 3g sim will do this, but you have to pay for it..

any help out there at all?? someone in the know?

Phone 3 and ask. They might even send you one if you say you have a dongle but no sim.

You might want to look out for a usb extention cable so it doesnt stick out the side and get broken, then you can gaffer tape it to your laptop. Or it you are feeling daring take the plastic case off it and use the unused usb points on the mini pci slot and wire it inside your lappy. (Is only 4 cables) Then you will have built in BB on your lappy.

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. I'm happy to send it for £25 delivered and would prefer BT once it arrives with you. If you PM me your details i'll get it sent tomorrow.

An ordinary PAYG SIM is fine for the Broadband, it's all to do with the Add-On you buy after you top up.
#11
just like to say andy247 is a top trader i traded a pc with him he sent the phone 1st and i recieved it exactly as stated when he said i would trade again without hesitation :)

as for sim if you buy a payg sim from 3 for £9.99 it comes with £11 credit (£1 on the sim and then £10 gets credited when you register)
and you can get £11 via quidco on it too link here http://threestore.three.co.uk/payg/default.aspx

cool, then its just buy a 10quid credit and convert it to broadband money..

thanks for that, oh, justneo was at my house tonight, i upgraded the memory and made the xp disc, also a disc with all the drivers for that model from the toshiba website, you probably wont need them all, but there are utilities on there too, just let me know if you need any help, but at the mo it will be shipped to you with the XP that is already on it, the XP disc i have supplied has Service pack 3 integrated and the serial number is ok for updates too.

As a bonus, i have included microsoft office 2007 for you too.

I wouldnt mount it directly I would wire a socket (maplin L51AZ) then if it breaks its easy just to unplug it and pop a new one in. Also I you have room in your case you can wire upto 4 usb sockets so you could add a usb bluetooth and a usb memory stick. Now that usb sticks have come down in price pop a 16gb one in and install windows on that and watch your system fly!

BUMP, still need one, the one Andy sent me doesnt work unfortunatly, just gets a little warm for some reason.

Anyone else have one?

OK, it works! The cables that were sent with it just make it get hot, I used a PSP cable and it popped up straight away, maybe the cables were bent to fit into the box and damaged but I cant use them.

Does anyone know if the Dual USB cable is REALLY NEEDED? or is it just if you want to use that to have the cable longer and as it's longer they provide it more power??

The dual cable is just to give extra power if your usb slot doesn't provide enough,
