O2 MF100 Black/Pink/White USB Modem for £10 in store, normal price £20. Got two from the Harrow store yesterday.
I was told the minimum topup is £2, and you get free BT openzone and Cloud wifi.

Cheers, will see if it is this price in Nottingham tomorow.

Do you have to access the BT Openzone through the dongle or do you get a login to use it straight to wifi?

It uses their o2 manager software in conjunction with the USB dongle and your laptops WiFi - ie you MUST have an active PAYG 1/7/30 day subscription running at the time.
PS: eg on Win XP the o2 Manager software takes over the WiFi connection from the standard Windows WiFi tool (and integrates the option to dialup via the dongle if there's a modem phone signal.)

With my blackberry, I have a wifi hotspot login in my bookmarks - set by O2 obviously, and only available when using the built in browser. Should be similarly straightforward with the dongle I would think.


30 day free or forever. That is what I would like to know as well, and what I was told by the lad in O2. Can anyone please confirm?

Don't take my word for it, but apparently you can use this: DCCRAP to unlock the modem.

£2 is the PAYG fee for the lowest amount of usage - ie 1 day (max 200MB phone data) with unlimited WiFi; they used to do a 1 week too but now see only 1 month (max 2GB phone data from Sep) for £15 with unlimited WiFi. (Hadn't used mine since March, so behind with their tariffs.)

then I will choose T-mobile definitely
T-moible offer 20pounds for 6 month, really unlimited data(3GB fair usage, but if it goes over 3GB, no charge)

Good Deal, I really need a USB mobile Dongle.
Can I unlock this with the post above to take and use abroad say Africa?

Re unlocking - look at the FAQ on the o2 website - says after six months the o2 PAYG can be unlocked for free - THOUGH not sure if that's six elapsed months, or six months worth of purchased PAYG usage time.
