What results are you getting with a 3 dongle?

Have you been experiencing problems with downloading pod casts etc, on 3? I've heard a rumor that they are shortly going to traffic shape the network. Perhaps other uses are hogging the bandwidth while they can! Any ideas?

I use Vodafone's 1GB mobile dongle with no problems. You can also buy 2GB and 3GB dongles and the good thing is that your credit does not expire after 30 days.

I would ditch 3 and go with Vodafone, which is the best mobile broadband provider.

Same comment except I have an unlocked '3' dongle that I've used with 3, O2 and Vodaphone. First point is not all service providers have the same service footprint so it's important you chose the right one for your area. Then chose the correct package - Vodaphone if you are an occasional user as the 1GB data limit doesn't time expire. If you use more than 1GB/month have a look at O2. I'd only use '3' if all else failed. But that's just my experience.

I didn't know you could unlock dongles.

My Vodafone dongle always reports a 'very weak' signal, but my Nokia phone on Virgin gives a faster data flow, so I'm using that as my primary mobile BB as it also has unlimited web access on the contract.
