I have an unlocked broadband dongle (T mobile), registered sim card and gigabag - but I can't get a connection.  Can anyone help, please?  Thanks.

When you plug it into your usb port - windows or mac should install the modem drivers.    What you need to do is create a dial up connection in windows.  use *99# as the phone number.  Then use Username - giffgaff,  password - password. 

 

Then try to connect.  windows should select the dongle by default when dialling a dial up connection.

Like a phone, a dongle can be networked locked and would need unlocking.

Best to let the dongle have a rest first...
