Evening all.

Hope we're not all too drunk yet. And I hope everyone is well and all your festive preparations are going well and as planned.

Quick question for the gadget guys (and gals of course) -

I've had the pleasure of using a 3 mobile internet thingy over the past year or so for internet access on me lappy when I've been out & about. Anyway, I've hardly used it lately and so I've been forking out for nothing & as it was out of contract, I've cancelled it.

Question is, what is best to do with the little modem/dongle thing- flog it, put a new sim in it then flog it, recycle it or what? If flogging it is the answer, no offers please as it will be sold elsewhere than here.

Thanks in advance guys!

Col.

Hi Harlzter!

I will try and dig the thing out as I'm not sure re model - it has a funny name beginning with H I tink. a black one with green trim.

I'll go look for it now.

You mean the 3dongleforfree ones where you paid p&p? If so then yes as at the time I was the only ebay seller selling the unlocking software:whistling: but giving it free on here! See above link, I think thats the same software.

Just to note, it works fine on Windows 7 as I did a dozen the other night using a netbook.
