Does this thread cover the Vodafone K3565 'Top up and Go' (1Gig 'never expires') ?
I just bought the dongle a couple of days ago. Alas I fell foul of the Access point name 'pp.internet' problem, but finally got that sorted and it turned out very useful around London and on the train.
BTW I found it worked fine in the rearmost slot on the right hand side, although I now see they recommend 2.5cm away from the skin, so I may have to review that.
But now come the questions....
1) Is there any way of finding out how much allowance we have left while on the CnM? - I couldn't find anything. Presumably I could transfer the stick to an XP machine and find out, but sadly at home in rural Suffolk we have no 3G coverage, so that is a non starter!
2) Is there any way of finding the signal strength? That would be handy.
3) Is there any way of sending email from the CnM email program with it, or do I have to use webmail? Presumably the stick has an address, but how to register it with a vodafone address?
4) How do I receive SMS? The instructions speak of a SIM card being secreted in the stick but no way I could get it out to find the number
Footnote: Since posting this item I have discovered that the dongle covers GPRS as well as 3G - you just need to connect to the CnM via cable in the rearmost slot as waldgrun discovered. So I was able to register via an old XP machine and can now view my balance and make top ups via my Vodafone account webpage - read later post.
