3 Wireless PAYG Dongle Connection Error

Hi all, my friend has one of the 3 connect wireless usb dongles for the internet on pay as you go, he's assured me there's credit on it but when i tried to connect it i get a message box stating:

"Software Activation has made "226" unsuccesful attempts over "WWAN" bearer type. The software will be blocked for WWAN connection after "774" more failed attempts. Contact your system administrator for more information."

I've tried swapping the usb port where i get a green light on the dongle but still get the same error.

Any help, suggestions, thanks in advance.

Have you tried contacting the "tech support" people of whichever 3G network you're using?
