This is just FAB. In simple terms it is a mobile phone without a keypad or screen, but rather than being designed for calls/txts, it streams a link to the internet using Wi-Fi. The signal is secure, just like a phone, or a locked home broadband, and, for reasons beyond my understanding, it transfers information really quickly, unlike my old "Dongles" (usb sticks) which my laptop refers to as a "dial-up connection". The device does make the data credit go at a faster rate than my old ("dial-up") Dongles, but then the Dongles were so slow that at times they weren't usable as pages would time-out.

This is a brilliant item, apparently "unlocked" but i only bought it in that state to give me the option to try other sim cards in it in the future if that suits me then, however it was my intention from the start to use the 3Mobile network, and so far i am very pleased with the reception i am getting, and, as mentioned, the speed of data transfer.

The set-up is a doddle, unbox it, charge it, put a sim card in it, switch it on....job done! You can adjust settings and view signal strength, plus, usefully see how many devices are using it's signal by looking on the Huawei website (there is an instruction booklet) and when using the 3Mobile simcard means that when you open the 3Mobile website it automatically recognizes the unit and give you data-usage without having to Create an Account (you may have to click on "My Account" even though you haven't set one up, but either way the data-useage is there on the website.

I bought this to go with a BlackBerry Playbook, but it will provide your own personal Wi-Fi ("Mi-Fi") for any device that can connect by wireless link.

Bought this to use with a Spanish sim while on holiday in Majorca. Much cheaper to use a local sim than use roaming on your own phone. Easy to set up, secure & you can have upto 8 devices connected at any one time. You will need to the carrier specific APN settings for the sim card provider you intend to use in the MiFi.
Use this link for a list of APN settings for Spain only

MiFi also cheaper way of connecting any WiFi only iPad to the Internet. Look up giffgaff.com for cheap data only sim deals.
Hope this helps.

This is really unlocked, I'm using it in Finland with a sim card of operator DNA.

Initially I ordered the cheaper version of this (the E5331) based on the good reviews. After some rethinking I canceled the order and ordered this one instead. The reason is I wanted to have the option to use an external antenna. I plan to use this on my summer cottage and the network signal is not perfect there. Can't harm in a car, either.

I also ordered an external antenna, but turned out, that the connectors don't match. The product description said nothing about the connector type, and I couldn't find any info elsewhere, either. So I assumed the most common one for Huawei modems (CRC9) should work. Well, it doesnt. After some lengthy re-googling I found out that the connector is of type TS-9. I have now ordered another antenna with this one, let's see if it fits and if it makes any difference.

I did a quick field test with the device on my way to work. The modem was in a cell phone holder in the windshield of my car, and running on its own battery. I had the speedtest.net running in an ipad on the passenger seat and i did a test every minute or so as I was driving to work. At first the download speed was disappointing, below 500 kbits/s, but after a few minutes the speed went up. For the rest of my trip it varied between 3 and 8,5 Mbit/s, which I find quite acceptable in a moving car. You could use netflix with that speed.

The reasons i dropped one star are:
- Lack of product information about the antenna connector,
- You need to be careful opening the back cover so that it doesn't brake. Someone who travels a lot might want to change the sim often, so a more practical solution would be nice.
- The price is a bit high.
- No 4G
- It's black.

This really is a true little gem, if you camp/caravan/motorvan etc. or just want ease of acces to the web when you are on holiday. You just put in the sim card (see my review on ones from here - they are cheaper than anywhere else for 3Gb and are genuine ones too). place it somewhere where you can see it gets all the bars in flourescent green (which means the highest signal) and log on with your laptop etc. You only have to put the security code in once too, after that it will connect for you everytime.
We bought this because we both have laptops and hubby being disabled likes to play games on his, I like to scour the wen for bargains and do my e-mails. With this we can both be on at the same time because it's wireless. And it's secur too.

We bought an unlocked one so if we did want to change sims we could, but so far we have found 3G to be the best coverage. We get all over the Country and have yet to come across a place where we cannot get onto the internet.
