Mobile Phone to double up as 3g modem for occaisional internet access

My mobile is dropping to bits (literally) and I need to replace it.

I also could use some mobile internet access occaisionally: but can't really justify getting an 18 month / 2 year contract on a USB dongle when I'll at best need internet access for 4-5 days a month, more likely 4-5 days every 2 months.

So, is there a reasonably priced HSDPA phone that comes with a usb lead to connect to my laptop and use it as a modem? Ideally I want it on Pay as You Go, seeing as I dont use my mobile too heavily for voice/text either, typically spending £5-£6 a month on virgin at the moment.

If theres a plethora of choices, I prefer candybar phones,ideally something by SE or nokia.

Anyone who is mobile savvy who can advise on which PAYG tarrifs offer bolt-on style packages where I can pay for a couple of days internet access out of my credit would also be appreciated
