upgraded ?? in what way, i keep thinking about getting one of these
whats the advantage of the upgrade? i've got s 3 PAYG mobile broadband sim so dont need it unlocked

You can upgrade the firmware yourself then... the upgrade makes it so when you turn it on it connects to 3G and WIFI automatically (out of the box you have to press 3 buttons to do this) and it also does not time out if you do not use it (again standard firmware does this after 10 mins or something)

Any other questions let me know.

Which firmware are you using?

Thanks

How do you unlock it?

On ebay - sent it off to be unlocked.

Great little device, however my Quidco got declined, didnt bother to chase it though

Perfect for anyone buying/bought the non-3G iPad.

the same - seems 3 doesn't want to pay for this, I got the answer from quidco that they my payback was paid... but not for me... joke

how do you go about toping up if you purchase the none contract version?
is it simply a case of buying topup credit - and does it run in a month or just until you've used all data?

I've got an unlocked one of these and I agree with Gary that these are great especially with the new firmware. They allow you to use all your wifi devices over 3G using any sim you want and I intend to buy one of these just for my new iPad.

The 3G reception on my iPhone is so crap I sometimes take the sim out of the phone and stick it in the mifi and then call people over skype on my iPhone!

I have one, works really well with iPad

Anyone have any idea of how to unlock for free, great price but don't want to send it off to get unlock.

Thanks guys..:)

You cant.

does the credit on these expire after a month so you HAVE to top up every month?

You cant.



I don't want to be pedantic but I guess the correct answer is "I don't know how to".

30 seconds of searching in Google for "mifi unlock" found this....

I had to view the cache version as page wasn't served up correctly.

Personally though I would pay the £6 and get the new firmware as well.

You can unlock it using dc-unlocker. I know, I have. It costs about £13 and you need an XP machine though.

Also it's worth updating the firmware.

Thank you for being so gracious.

ive been looking at these on ebay (unlocked version) so im abit confused.... do i put my contract o2 sim card in this thing and use my 'unlimited web browser' bolt on to surf? or do i have to have some kinda special payg sim card to use in it? any help would be greatful.

Should be ok to use your normal SIM.
