Looks nice 2

3 are selling this as pre pay to anyone so this is just the rrp, the existing customer deal was on a contract where as this is pre pay

nice find, hotness

Heat added - good find! Only because of the quidco, mind. Deffo makes it the cheapest i've seen anyway.

Yes,your right,its the current price and the way the price has been dropping on these lately i'd guess there'd be another price drop or better deal very soon,

Saying that,they are a very handy thing to have for people on the move

If you buy from ]http//ww…uk/ similar price and you get a free sim card back up device

apparently worth 14.99 (cough)

Also option to pay via paypal

If you go through quidco and then 3 mobile and buy direct from 3 you should get £4 quidco cashback.
Also it gets send special delivery.

personally I'd go for the E220 usb model (Oval Shape), it's far more compatible, it even works with the EEE pc straight out of the box, with no software to install.

Play.com stock it for £59.99 i think as PAYG

That model is also on offer for 49.99,play USED to be the cheapest option,but not any more

For those of me who are tired......does this mean that I am paying for the dongle and will then be charged for accessing the net or does it mean a one off payment for anytime anywhere access to the net.
Thanks in advance

You pay so much a month top up for an amount of gb, think its £10 a month for 1gb but quite expensive if you go over that 1gb, certainly less expensive to go over the 1gb on the pay monthly version of the dongle

thanks - tired me now with it :-)

I gonna hold off, the price of these are dropping fast and I think will continue. Think there is some E.U ruling coming up soon forcing them to lower prices so their scrambling to get as many customers as they can now.

Does anyone know if this is locked to 3 or can I use a different sim card in it?

It's £44.99 at ]Play, before Quidco and discount codes.

:pirate:CJ:pirate:

According to that it doesn't mention anything about Linux though. Will it still be ok?

And what about going over your 1Gb limit? Will it charge you automatic, or is it simply up to you to top up once you have run out - like a mobile phone?

I've read it's £1 per MB after the 1GB! Yikes! You'd need to make sure you don't go over the 1GB or else have a healthy bank balance.

If you have a balance in your account it will start to use that once your bundle runs out,had a friend who discovered that to his cost,bundle expired,almost £20 was gone from the balance by next morning and he wasn't on all night!

thought it was contract free, thus making it same as pre pay phone??

The white one definitely works with Linux i use one with my EeePC , and as some one has pointed out its cheaper at Play.com at £44.95 - Quidco

Right, time to clear a few things up on this (I'm actually using this modem to get on here to type this!):

The Woolworths offer INCLUDES a £10 top-up when bought instore. If you buy from 3/play you will still need a top up.

Important: When you first install it, you will need to browse to three.co.uk (you can access the three site at no cost), and you MUST choose the 'Activate your Mobile Broadband' option. Do not use the normal register then top up method else you will be charged for data at the out-of-bundle rate of £1/Mb.

Enter the number from your top-up voucher, enter the mobile number (found on the sim pack) and choose the broadband package you want. You are not billed recurringly, you will need to repeat this process with another top-up once your existing package expires. You will only be billed outside the bundle if you have credit remaining on the sim (e.g. if you top up with £10, activate the £10 bundle, then your balance is £0, so you will not be billed outside the bundle, rather the internet will stop working on the modem).

Once you have activated your voucher, wait 5 minutes, disconnect and reconnect the modem and you're away (this 5 minute wait is for the first top up to ensure that the bundle is activated). You can use the My3 page to see how much bandwidth you have left.

The ZTE modem works on Windows and Mac OS X out the box. There is no official Linux support (something about using usb_modeswitch and the serial ports to get it to work). The Windows software will also let you send/receive texts.

Conclusion: Want to pay as little as possible for one of these modems, don't intend to unlock it and don't use linux? This one is probably fine.
otherwise you want the white Huwaei modem that play are selling.

Also, 3's (instore) policy on returning these is at least 3 day no quibble returns, so if it's no good in your area you will only be down a top up (£10)

Thanks so much for clearing a few unanswered questions there, very good of you. But something I don't understand. You mention about sim card. Whats that all about? Are you on about if you are a 3 mobile customer? I'm puzzled.

The modem comes with a 3 pay as you go SIM card (the modem is essentially a phone and needs a sim card to operate). As the sim card is the same as any other 3 pay as you go SIM, it will act like one in terms of credit and top ups etc.

3's mobile broadband operates as an 'Add-On' (like a bundle of texts/minutes), you have to buy the appropriate 'Mobile Broadband' add-on for your account. Otherwise you're charged per MB of data (£1/Mb on pay as you go)
