I have a T-Mobile USB dongle and I’m wondering if I can stick a T-mobile phone SIM in there and use the data allowance?
I can get a T-mobile contract for £1 a month and it comes with a 500MB allowance plus it is unlimited for web browsing so a good deal if it works.

Thanks. Are you speaking from personal experience?

T-mobile don’t stop people from tethering so they seem to have a relaxed attitude to data use on their network. I had an Android contract with them with a 3GB allowance and used to use around 3GB every month thought tethering and they never complained.

I don’t require WiFi access otherwise I would look at that option.

Thanks for that. Is that also the 500MB/unlimited data allowance?

I can get a 2 year contract with 300 mins/300 texts/unlimited landline calls and the 500MB/unlimited data allowance for £1 a month which works out cheaper plus I get the phone contact if I ever need to use it so I’ll probably go with that.
