I take it the device is £20, if so what's the tariff cost?

The device is free with the £20 tariff

no link. c.w don't seem to know anything about it. I've just called them.

I'm guessing the device is free and its 15gb data for the 30 days.

Which does look indeed a fantastic deal.

Incidentally, EE are doing the 24 month contract for the same price, no upfront cost, 15gb data but with the possibility of £50 Quidco.

Couldn't find it on the CW website itself.
Googling showed it as "This product is out of stock and cannot be ordered at this time "

That showed the CW product code 19500755 does show it up on the CW website.
Best to visit the site (potentially via a £back site) and then search for that product code (in stock again as per later posting 13/1)
http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/

So using that product code you MAY be able to track one down in a CW store (as not currently available to buy online).

"EE E392 Mobile Broadband Dongle On EE 4G 3GB £15, 30 day "
Recognise that is only a Huawei E392 4G USB Dongle with 4G SIM in - ie without the self-powered "MiFi" functionality of sharing the link over 10 WiFi devices
... though of course you could potentially achieve that by adding say a £10'ish gizmo.... something like...

but then more than £20 and not as convenient - though finding a 19500755 Osprey probably hit-and-miss in-store experience.

ordered. not a bad deal.

FYI I got one today in Edinburgh, St. James Centre.

Showing as in stock online again, though direct links to page seem to be broken.
Get to Carphone Warehouse site (potentially via a £back site) and search for CW product code: 19500755

Worth monitoring as it went out of stock online soon after OP, but then came back. And people have continued to report finding in store. I would advise using the CPW code: 19500755 to search for it rather than a specific web link (they have repeatedly broken for me).

Good point .. MiFi Devices generally speaking are a better deal all round (when it comes to 'sharing' ... ) :-)

Advice needed (I had serious signal issues for over the past 8 months where I live).....After numerous phone calls to EE they have finally sent me a Signal Booster. However my dilemma is 3 months ago EE ended my contract early with them because they discovered a local transmitter near where I live had been removed (therefore they released me from my contract early and with me having to pay a penalty Anyway my dilemma now is I am no longer with EE but I have the Signal Booster (Can I sell it??) Could try and return it however with all the hours I've previously spent on the phone with EE I just know that will also be a very long winded conversation explaining my past history. I've looked on Ebay and the same models are going for nearly £100.00...oO Any advice appreciated...x

My area is years off 4g , so no good for me

How do these compare to broadband connections? I am currently on Sky connect and it is the worst thing since broadband started. I fluctuate from 6Mbs to 0.6Mbs. This is my current lines capacity as I am in a rural area but EE is decent around here.

It will work on 3G though... I'm getting faster and more reliable broadband via a 4G MiFi (working at 3G) than via my phone line!!

Yoda you are?

these are cracking devices had one for a couple of months last year in a flat in paisley can confirm they also work well on 3G

Can also be unlocked for about a quid on ebay



Generally speaking, these are for people that dont have a Broadband Telephone Line in the House already ..... but failing that:

Theres your answer ..... :-)

This looks great but is there a contract or just loaded with the data you then have to top up ?

If you read the details it's a 15GB/month @ £20 rolling 1month contract (ie presumably 30-day notice period) - ie have to pay the first £20 for month 1's 15GB (getting the device for free) but could then immediately seek to cancel before renewal for month 2. That leaves you with the MiFi device and 15GB data for £20 (or with 30GB for £40 if don't manage to cancel immediately) to re-use later with some EE data SIM, or alternatively to get it unlocked (eg eBay £1) and use with another providers data SIM/package.

If you cancel immediately "before renewal for month 2", you will be obliged to pay for the following 30 days (the notice period) plus the first 30 days service i.e. total 60 days (give or take rounding for the cyclic billing date). If you are looking to minimise the contractual obligations you need to give your 30 days notice on the day you buy the item.

Would you take a bad price for it?

Depends on the terms you agreed to when they sent it. If they told you it's theirs and are only loaning it to you, then you could be liable for the cost.

Kinda like people that sell virgin boxes then get caught out when virgin ask you to send them back a couple of weeks later!

lol depends how bad lol
