The E586 is compatible with the main computer operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlocked Huawei E586 16 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Day 1) I bought this device back in late June 2012 when it became rapidly apparent how absolutely awful Vodafone's data service was and how even worse was the support - with the Vodafone dongle. The Dongle expired and I've today [mid September 2012] moved over to the Unlocked Huawei E586. I had bought three three-month '3' PAYG SIMs 3 Original Broadband Ready to Go 3GB Preloaded Data Sim for Mobile Devices and just dropped one into the already charged device. My MacBook Pro found it immediately (press the button on the side of the device to bring up the password on its screen) and it worked straight away at what seemed a blazing speed. TweetDeck was turning over at the normal rate. Emails went back and forth. This was all a bit of a surprise as all networks have very poor cover where I live. OK it worked outdoors anyway.

With a 3 SIM it really is very easy and I note you have to use alternative settings with other networks (see below) and with a local SIM with networks abroad. There are easily found sources for these APNs on the Net.

The Huawei E586 is sleek and really very small and pocketable. There is a front screen and two buttons on the side - a power button and a key button that brings up information including the password. You also get a couple of cables (USB to mini USB), a mains charger and an optional charger cradle. The book of words is minimal to say the least.

I've also dug out a tiny cheap camera case Lowepro Altus 10 Small Camera Pouch to slip the Huawei E586 device into.

Verified Purchase
OK, so I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (WiFi) - UK Version, but being too cheap and too iggerent, I only got the wifi version, trusting, naiively that I could generally rely on my home wifi or, away from home, on complimentary wifi. This didn't seem too much of a stretch - McDonalds, my local hospital and most airports provide such a service, but it quickly became obvious that I was perhaps expecting too much. I never go to McDonalds, spend little time at Frimley Park Hospital (thank god) and my home wifi router is pretty feeble. So, on the advice of a relative, I bought this.

For those of you of a similar level of stupidity to me, this is basically a 3G/4G mobile phone: it lacks a keypad and microphone/speaker, but that's as good a description as I can provide. Despite being pretty useless as a moby, it DOES emit a wifi signal, allowing your wifi device (iPad, Tablet, laptop or gaming handset) to access teh interwebz via the mobile network. Fab, innit?

What you get in the pack is the hotspot device itself, a charging cradle, a couple of USB cables (one short and one long) and a 3-pin power plug. there is also the battery which needs to be installed and charged (either by connecting the 3-pin to the hotspot via one of the USB cables or using the cradle). There you go. That's it!

Well, not quite. You do need a SIM card. I bought this one, which gives you a 1GB download capacity with a life of 1 month and

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent signal and speed 11 Feb 2012
This dongle provides a superior signal to others I have used and even though I wanted it unlocked due to issues with 3 in the past, I have to admit that on the 3 network the signal and speed is outstanding even in areas where other networks provide poor coverage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Click and connect! 2 July 2012
I bought this device to allow my partner and I to use our WiFi only iPads when we are out and about. We were both reluctant to sign up to yet another monthly payment as our usage is uncertain, and, so adopted the PAYG route. You can get 3GB SIMs for this MiFi unit on Amazon at prices which make buying a new SIM each time far better value for money than topping up the supplied SIM.

I am highly satisfied with this device. This MiFi unit is made for 3 by Huawei and comes complete with a USB lead to charge it from your PC together with a mains adapter and dock which is well weighted and provides an ideal stand for the device at home. I have found the performance to be good in most places I have used it (mostly in Sussex and Herts) and we have both managed to connect our iPads whilst parked up in the car and surf without difficulty (you can connect up to 5 devices). One thing you should be conscious of is that the closer the device is to your PC/iPad the better it works - you cannot compare the range with a mains powered router. Also, I have found that a good signal does not always mean the speed of the connection will be higher - there appear to be other factors which influence speed.

Turning to the device itself - it is small, slim, well made and a bit smaller than a mobile phone so it easily fits in your pocket. It has a display which gives you signal strength, battery level and the amount of data you have used etc. The display is helpful, and, in particular, the "data used" information is very useful this being a feature omitted from a more basic version of this device being sold by 3. Not having a "data used" display to me is a bit like driving a car without a fuel gauge. The display could be bigger, but, no doubt that would exert more strain on the battery.
