So far I have spent about 20 hours trying to set it up and use it - unsuccessfully so far. So I'm not sure if the problem lies with the 5220 or the Sim (or my incorrect settings.) I will report further if I make progrss!
3 days later - some progress - Having sought help from "NowRoam" & Amazons supplier "mpxsys"; I got a rapid helpful reply from "mpxsys". I did as they suggessted & reset the E5220 back to factory settings then swapped the "NowRoam" SIM for a Vodafone SIM from my Vodafone USB Dongle. I then used the "Quick Set-up Wizard" and only needed to change the Profile setting to VODAFONE PAYGPPINTERNET. It worked - Internet useable. So it seems that the fault lies in the "NowRoam" SIM or in the "NowRoam" Settings. "NowRoam" are investigating. "NowRoam" have given up on me. I am trying a SIM from "DooDad" next. Success. Doodad International SIM fairly easily installed and tested.
A little bit of background: I recently purchased a Microsoft Surface to make life easy instead of chugging my old Acer laptop 'everywhere I go' and obviously the first big problem staring at me was to get convenient, mobile internet. I initially juggled between getting a dongle or a mifi but decided to go for the latter as they offered a wider range of choices. Going for an unlocked device was an easy decision and the Huawei devices stood out.
Now this device, first the size. It is as small as a Samsung Galaxy mini and weighs even less. It doesn't even have to stay in your pocket, it can be inside your handbag on the seat opposite you, in your suitcase on the rack above your head, or in your backpack and still deliver seamlessly.
Opening the back cover and inserting the SIM card is much easier than replacing the SIM in my Samsung S3 and setting it up to use on my mobiles, laptop and tablet was as simple as searching for the network and typing the network key [conveniently located on the back cover] and hey presto! Full green service. Oh, and yes, it worked on all four devices at the same time.
Its hard to find fault with this device. I too find the blinking green light sometimes a tad bit annoying but that can easily be put down to neurosis. Also it does last FOUR HOURS, nothing more, nothing less! With the surface however, that is a miniscule problem as there is a handy USB port with which I can charge the device using a standard USB cable. I bought this with the EE 4G 6GB SIM card and at 38 quid, this little piggy is going 'wheeee!' all the way home!!!
Apart from my snags I think with any mainstream sim card it will work straight out the box. It is certainly an able replacement for my broadband connection(slightly slower as you'd expect). I'm off to Spain next week so I'll see how it goes when I buy a Spanish sim.
Update - Could not get the French networks to work with this but I'm having no problem in Spain and that is without buying a Spanish sim yet. i.e. GiffGaff is ok in Spain but struggles in France - don't know why. Obviously a Spanish sim will be much cheaper but I think I've proved the principle that it will work OK. Good gadget
