Customer:

hi steve

Customer:

just that will be in between internet contracts and without wifi for about 2 weeks

Steve G. :

Ok, the iPad doesn't have USB so you can't use a dongle.

Steve G. :

You could try one of these:

Hold on...

Steve G. :

It's a pocket hotspot.

Steve G. :

Your iPad connects to it via WiFi and then it connects via 3G/4G

Steve G. :

I'm not sure that you are going to get any kind of unlimited package. You usually purchase 1Gb blocks of data.

Steve G. :

You can also connect all your other devices to it.

Customer:

UNLOCKED HUAWEI E587 3G MOBILE BROADBAND MIFI WIFI + 15dbi db EXTERNAL ANTENNA would this do for me steve saw it on ebay...it says I would need a sim card...for my mini ipad can I buy any payg sim card for say 1 pound here in the shops...and if I top it up say 10 pounds how much data will I get do you know...sorry just confused...is buying a sim for this portable device straightforward but will it cost a lot in top ups?

Steve G. :

I guess it depends on how much the MIFI is. If it is only a few quid, then yes. It will take a sim that you can top up as you go. Looks like about ten pounds for 1Gb which isn't bad. If you start watching a lot of movies though you could burn thriough that.
