No mobile networking, wi-fi works superb but so far having problem with 3G network. I don't think it supports 3G even though that is what AICS says

This is the reply I had back from A1CS about this - copied & pasted from a Janet Fraser Catalogue maybe...:

We recommend a MIFI dongle or a E1750 unlocked dongle.

Ideal solution is MIFI dongle. A MIFI dongle is a wireless dongle such that you can pop your mifi dongle in your handbag or in your pocket and can happily connect your tablet.

You can make many Android phones act as a MiFi. I think you needs Android 2.3 or later. Beware of using your phone's data allocation as you can easily get sidetracked. Also, the phone battery will discharge very quickly, suggest you keep it plugged into mains if possible.

I plugged my contract Three 3G dongle into the USB port, and it was recognised and connected within seconds.
Have tried in both Standard and mini-usb ports and worked in both cases.
Huge plus in my case, when you are in an area without any wifi hot spots.

Power up your tablet and go into the settings option. Under Wi-fi and data usage is a tab for 'more', open this and the options available should offer 'mobile networks'. Open that and enable 'Data enabled' . Go back out until you get to the home screen and then connect your dongle via usb to the tablet, in the task bar you should see the 3g signal strength bars showing you are now connected.... Hope this works ok for you, as I had no problems doing mine this way.

The solid blue light is normally the indicator to say that you are connected, try starting the tablet, then inserting the dongle, then going through the mobile networks route and data enabled, if no joy check with 3 and check if data package is still active, some 3 PAYG dongles expire even if you don't use them.....!

I bought the tablet a few days ago and have just received an unlocked E1750 dongle via amazon. It doesn't seem to work. When plugged in a green light flashes on the dongle but nothing happens. I have gone into the settings and network bit but I just can't get any further. Any suggestions PLEASE. We go on holiday tomorrow and this was supposed to let me keep in touch.

Hi

Part I could cut it to fit the mini card but don't really want to cut it! I am seriously annoyed as I brought this model as it had 3G! Any advice would be great fully received!
Thanks

The actual Fusion 5 never claims to be a 3g enabled device, however 3g dongles plugged in via the usb port (mine is a Three product) will work.
