Now down to £4.97 from £9.99 for the device, however you have to take it out on a minimum 1 month rolling contract. Take out the 1GB option for £10 a month, and cancel immediately on the day.

£10 per month for 30 days
£4.97 for the device
Total: £14.97

Unlocking available on eBay for 99p - tested and worked for me (copy and paste the entire link):

Done

1gb for £10 a month no thanks. good price for the mifi but ridiculous price for £1gb a month

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago from PC World on the cheapest contract - 1GB £10 which I cancelled as soon as I got home.

Great bit of kit which I am currently using it with my Two months of 100GB of 4G data on EE and getting excellent down and upload speeds both at home and out and about in my car.

Easy to unlock via eBay.

Have some heat!

unless you have an old contract i think £10 for a gig is the standard.

Pc world sell 3 4G 1gb data sim cards for £3.99.

Did you get the contract deal from currys include the option for the time limited 100gb?

they do. however i would presume you'd have to go through the hassle of buying multiples and setting one up each month.

Ditto

If you didn't want to cancel as soon as you purchased one you could also keep it on for the following tarriffs; 1GB for £10 a month, 3GB for £15 a month, 15GB for £20 a month, 25GB for £30 a month. These are all rolling deals and will keep on going until you cancel them.

Can someone explain what this device does exactly? I'm looking for something that will let me browse on my iPad Air WIFI only (not cellular) on the train. Many thanks to anyone who replies

I am also doing the same!! Heated

I purchased it from PC World last week at £9.99 with 1GB £10 contract, then cancelled straight away. However, they have put an ETC (Early Termination Charge) on my bill, I've called up and they've advised it's a system error so they have aparently removed this charge. I did get a bill yesterday showing this charge, but I can only assume the bill went out before they made the change. Online billing still shows the charge.

I unlocked mine yesterday, sent the request for the code at 09:00 and had it by 11:00 from ebay as mentioned on this deal: EE OSPREY Unlock Code

I also emailed PC World saying the price has dropped by half, I got a call back an hour later, saying the finance team will call me to refund me the difference straight into my bank account.

Once I've used the 1GB, the EE SIM with 100GB data will go straight in. EE Limited Edition SIM

I seem to be getting a awful deal with 3 I pay £14 odd a month for 1gb of data

Do people not just tether to their phones?

@emmacowley yes you can do that, leave the osprey in your handbag and then you can connect your ipad/laptop via the osprey's wifi signal :)...

@Birmingham43 yes you can use tethering but you drain your phone's battery quicker than you can say hello.. this doesn't drain no where near as fast.

I'm in the same boat; I bought mine from Currys last Friday for £9.99, which is a bit annoying. I'll drop them an e-mail now, see if I can get a similar outcome to you. Cheers for that.

Maybe not all people using a 4G phone like me?

anyone know if I can ask EE to Ghost my SIM so I have one in phone and other in this device without need for duplicate or simultaneous contracts?

No setting up, just throw it in and away you go.

Currys/PC world would wheel and deal a lot around the price oh the unit itself (not the monthly cost).

Haggle with them and they will drop the price pretty quickly, can't really explain why :X

I pay £10 a month with 3 for 2gb data, unlimited texts and 200 mins.

Any technical details on this device please? For example people are quick to say it can be unlocked for use on other networks but which bands/frequencies does it support? It may not be any use on other networks.

I bought one a few weeks ago and then cancelled the contract, bought the 99p unlock code and then bought a vodafone data sim to use in Portugal from eBay. 4G everywhere I went in Carvoiero:-)

Me too, apart from the car bit. Sacked Sky as they wanted more money for less speed - cheeky barstewards! Now get 2.4 Mbps on average, 'bout double of what Sky were pumping down the line to me. Makes you realise just how much we're being milked (cash cows) for broadband. I see the market isn't working yet again!

Is there a Cardiff Blues version?

I phoned 3 an complained so they said I could have 15gb for £14.99 a month as I said I was going to leave so thanks for this

We don't use phones for Internet as its used in a garage instead of getting all phone line an contract an great for the car kids I pads an films = a peaceful drive

Good deal, I will try and get one ASAP. Thanks for posting

MiFis have uses. For example for using when you don't have a fixed phone line or cable connection. If you're in this position and have a family then they'd lose Internet connection when you went out with your phone.

In these circumstances the obvious answer is to buy a separate device to do it. In which case a £15 MiFi is clearly a better option than a full 4G phone to use for tethering.

picked a payg one up in asda already loaded with 2gb for £25 if that helps anyone. No contract

and 3 offer 10gb on monthly data sim for about £15

Hi, two questions:

1. how do i check how much data I have left on this sim?
2. if I go over the 1Gb allowance, will i get charged?

Considered this when it was £10 but didn't go for it. No brainer at £5.

Got the last one in my local store - had to take the display model but in good condition but not a problem.

Took 10 minutes to set up contract and about 3 to give notice.

They won't do it. You may be able to convert to a sharing contract but there usually another charge for the 2nd device.

1. Register at myaccount.ee.co.uk
2. No, it's capped - unless you explicitly add more data (according to the guy I spoke to when I gave notice on my contract

what's the best way to tether one of these to a home router (e.g. billion) as a WAN connection?

While Sky are responsible for price rises they are not responsible for some of the frankly shoddy phone wiring that was put in back in the 60's and patch soldered without a care, when Ali was cheap and fine for voice, but as many people are now finding out crap for data..
