SIM only mobile broadband

SIM only mobile broadband

I happen to think this would be a great idea. You'd be the only provider to have it and it would mean that people with unlocked dongles could use your network for mobile broadband.

 

It could be totally pay as you go, and it would mean you would be able to make sure you were earning a profit for people using their giffgaff service primarily for mobile broadband.

 

EDIT 25/3/2011: Haven't heard much from giffgaff lately on this one, but I'm still very much in favour of this idea coming into play Smiley Happy

Yes hopefully you will be able to, you will just need to pop in the data only sim and buy a data goodybag Smiley Wink (when it is released)

 

and you will off to a flying start Smiley Wink

Being a new member.I thought I could use another Sim card in my 10inch net book Dongle.No when I tried to activate it I was told my old number in my phone would be cancelled,Hence I was stuck.I could probably joined in another name.I am off with my campervan for 4 days, though it it would be easy for emails.Any one have information I could use.I was with Orange but got my dongle unlocked

I would also prefer to see the software for the mobile dongle without the hard coded O2 link. When I connect, my dongle automatically launches the browser and take me to the O2 top up page. I have tried and tried to find any reference to it in the files but the only conclusion I can come up with is that it is hard coded into the software. I can turn the auto launch of the browser off but I still want to see how much data I have left so I still have to lauch the browser and enter the page name manually.

 

I want it to show the Giffgaff page that shows my current balance and not the O2 page that shows my current balance is zero. Therefore, I would prefer software that allows me to enter the page I want launched when the dongle connects.
