    Well I failed with a 3 dongle. I didn't do my homework, forgot, unlike you, switched on and Nothing. At least it saved me a fortune.

    I'm sure I've see sites where they unlock the dongle to allow other SIMs. You may be in the same boat.

    PAYG SIMs

    Yes you can, just buy a PAYGo Sim and put it in should be easy.

    Worked OK for me in Portugal and Spain earlier this year,worked well and was quite cheap it was costin about a Euro a day.

    Hi all,

    I have just had my 3 Hauwei 160G unlocked for £9.99 using eBay Seller: ynot-say-yes: Computing items on eBay.co.uk. It came with the Mobile Partner software already loaded on to it.
    I sent the dongle by first class recorded delivery on the Monday, and I received it back via the same, on the Wednesday. Excellent service.
    I can use it here in the UK or abroad using any sim card. I am not sure which is best for France though.

    He also supplies those o2 iPhone sim cards at Dongle-unlock - Home if you don't want to go through ebay.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    Thanks Jim.

    I was so pleased with the service that I asked the guy if I could pass on his details on Fun and Facts. He was more than happy for me to do so. :thumb:

    TTFN,

    Jock.

    I am going to France and would like to know If I have an unlocked dongle (in the process of getting mine unlocked) do I just go into a shop and buy any PAYG sim card or does it have to specify internet access?
    I have just had a thought - I have an iphone with a sim card (obviously) could I use this?

    If you contact Vodafone and ask they will send you the unlocking code free of charge you have to give them the IMEI: number of the dongle the required software can be downloaded from their site.
