    Vodafone Mobile Broadband Router for ipod Touch - ?

    Can anyone tell me if they have done this before.

    I have a work blackberry which is an OK business phone. Would love an iPhone but I am too cheap to buy one when the firm gives me a blackberry for free !

    I have one of the vodafone USB dongles on the £15-1GB-never-expires tarrif.

    I would really like to be able to access my hotmail and IM accounts when out an about which I cannot do on work laprop or blackberry as these are locked down.

    Has anyone used an ipod touch with a mobile broadband router (allwoing the itouch Wifi Access through the USB broadband dongle) ?

    Did it work ?
    What router did you use ?

    Any advice greatfully recieved.

    Dongles are modems arent they rather than routers? So you cant connect your ipod to it as they only connect to routers with wifi capability. I think thats the case anyway. The MIFI from 3 looks good, not sure about there deal to buy a £50 unit and 3Gb of usage (normally £15) for £70 though??

    phanco, have you tried setting up your personal email accounts on the Blackberry Internet Service website?

    I have a work Blackberry which I use to access my personal emails by setting up the mobile details on the BIS (T-Mobile equivilent [url]www.instantemail.t-mobile.co.uk[/url])

    I know of these - but you also get devices that take the USB wifi stick (meaning that I can keep the sim in the usb stick and transfer it to netbook as and when required). I also have the Voda dongle+SIM so would hope not to buy another.

    I thought of this but AFAIK the handset is setup to only access the corporate BES server.
