Product Description

Product Description

The LM003 3G HSUPA USB modem is an unlocked 3G modem which operates with all service providers in the U.K. This means there are no contract ties to worry about - you can use any sim card from any of the operators like 02 and Vodafone and switch between them. Setup is easy as the software is installed directly from flash memory on the modem itself - no CD-Rom required. Offering a 7.2Mbps download rate and upto 5.6Mbps upload rate anywhere in the world via your 3G SIM Card. A micro-SD slot on the modem accepts a memory card for up to 8 GB (Gigabytes) of memory. A simple slide-in of a micro-SD memory card allows the modem to double as a flash drive to maximize the flexibility of available USB ports.

Easy to set up using the software on the USB itself (note also that you can download the LM003's Linux driver from the LM website). The software comes pre-loaded with the APN settings for connecting for "99% of the world's networks" (says the manual), and the manual also includes the APN settings for the main UK networks.

You can add or modify the APN settings as much as you want, and if you can't connect then try searching for the APN settings online - using a different internet connection :) - or contact your provider. I found the settings for giffgaff online in a few minutes and I'm writing this review on the connection through this USB particular modem dongle thing.

CAVEATS: The manufacturer appears to be confused about the specifications of their modem though: their printed manual that comes in the box (there are in fact three manuals - one each for Windows, Mac and Linux) says that the micro SD expansion slot will take up to 32Gb; their website and downloadable manuals say the slot can take an 8Gb card maximum. It doesn't matter as Vista won't recognise even my 2Gb micro SD card and the LM support team are a bit tardy getting back to me. I would download the latest firmware except the LM website link is broken.

All in all, an absolute gem for the connection and simple set up. However LM are losing stars through not knowing what their product can do and for not finding the wherewithal to actually reply to me yet: 5 days and waiting ...

i have used with a giffgaff sim and connected ok.

the instructions are not very good - there is no diagram showing where things are.
its not obvious where the sim card goes - in fact the one side slides off - push in the direction of the arrow to expose the sim card and sd slots.

i plugged mine in and it installed itself easily - but in the package was a confusing addendum which implied a manual installation was needed.

there is an antenna extension available LM256 - around £8 - whether its worth bothering for an extra 25% is doubtful.

it is quadband so should work wordwide.

there is an LED which seems to be flashing blue if a signal is present and steady red if not - the instructions dont cover this.

the connection manager screen appears when you plug in and clik the icon.

most of the common networks are there already so select the appropriate one and clik connect.

my giffgaff sim wasnt there so i entered the settings manually as below.

connection manager settings

INTERNET TAB
clik on NEW
Connection Name = giffgaff - GPRS (probably your choice)
APN - Access Point Name = giffgaff.com (essential)
Access Number = *99#
Username = giffgaff
Password = password
use chap
OPTIONS TAB
clik on network
can choose preferred mode eg GPRS EDGE UMTS
UMTS faster than EDGE and GPRS
you may not get UMTS away from main cities
set network selection to auto

clik connect

when connected signal strength is shown

there is no help info on the connection manager screen.

the main thing is it does work and should be faster than the common huaei E160 dongles which are usually locked to one network.

this one is unlocked so you can choose your own network provider and better deals.

This is currently useless if you have a Mac running the current 10.7 OSX. There is no compatible driver in the included software and nothing available online - that's because there isn't one, as LM admits on its website FAQs. If you're still using an older Mac operating system, you might be alright, but if you then upgrade, it'll stop working. It's fine with our other laptop, which is Windows-based - so not a bad product, just not Mac-friendly.

This is a true plug and play device with Ubuntu. Inserted my O2 sim card into the top of the unit and plugged it in. Ubuntu detected the new modem and ran a set-up wizard which had me online in about 20 seconds. Nice product! Have been using Gammu to send and receive SMS messages.

This dongle now lets me log-on where ever I am. In the car, away for the weekend. Pretty much anywhere in the land, even in remote areas of Scotland.

Although this might be OK for those providers that are already in the devices software, it is hopeless for those that are not. I am pretty IT savvy and have spent hours trting to contact this to T Mobile Germany with no success. Non-existent customer support. Waste of money....look elsewhere

Very easy to set up (Win 7). Good reception. Make sure you close application down by properly disconnecting when not in use, do not let your computer go into hibernate/standby otherwise you have to uninstall/reinstall.
