Hi, guys. I just came across this app which will allow you to use a 3G dongle with your Android tablets, provided you have a OTG cable. Thought it might come handy for all the peeps who bought tablets in recent sales.

See 1st post for further details

Description from Google Play...

Description
Use your phone or your 3G modem stick with your Android device's USB host for Internet access - even if it is Wifi-only.
- Needs root access
- Needs USB host
- Needs a powered USB hub (unless your device has plenty of power)
- Some devices (e.g. Samsung) need additional kernel drivers
- Contains native tools for ARM and X86

This app is free. No ads. No data gathering.

Warning: there is no guarantee that every Android/modem combo will work. Don't blame me!
!! If your combination does not work, help with improvement !!

Don't just complain in a short comment. See app homepage for feedback options.

Details:

This widget is a frontend for the PPP daemon which enables Internet access over almost any USB device with modem capabilities, including mobile phones.

For 3G sticks, the usb_modeswitch tool is included to bring them into modem mode, in most cases fully automatic.

Even if this app needs root access for device preparation and building the connection, it does NOT alter any system files!

Any hints on tethering, been trying to do it with my iphone ??

Don't know much about iPhones but if tethering is allowed there probably is an option in the iPhone Settings to make or turn on a WiFi Hotspot. If you have this it's only a matter of creating a name for the Hotspot and a password then using them to log on in your Pad/Tab WiFi Settings. Hope this helps.
