Summary: Sim card not included, but if you have one this is very plain sailing indeed. There are clear instructions included, but take the dongle, slide open a panel, insert your sim (and micro sd card if you want extra mobile storage), plug into your lap top and follow on screen instructions which should...
Summary: I struggled a lot before placing this oder since I've seen those bad ratings. Now I see it just as the item I want. The network is provided by 3, and the speed is fairly good, no problem with streaming Youtube HD(720p) video. My operating system is Windows 7.
Summary: Having read a few reviews of problems with connecting using micro sim cards and adaptors I was a bit concerned but in saying that I have only used a standard sized sim card and it seems to work Ok for me.
Not really a fair rating as it comes from a novice

Summary: I got this product when I was going on holiday to the States but found it a bit too baffling so just relied on the access I got with the hotels. I am sure if you can get it working then it is a great size but I found that the instructions were not detailed enough to support someone who doesn't...
Summary: This works fine for me - mobile isn't great for tethering, so I just swapped my sim into here (bit silly as I then don't get texts etc!) And it works fine, no problems. Having read the other reviews, probably worth noting I'm using a standard sim.
Summary: I have to agree with Aaron's review. I am very disappointed with this product. While some folks appear to have been successful, I have not. I'm surprised that it does not have support for Mac OS X. But let me leave that aside. On paper, the MA260 appears very capable.
Summary: I was recommended to buy this dongle and looking at the reviews it seems great for what I need. SIM all registered and active, but the internet just won't connect. Phoned the help line who were awful. Back to the drawing board for me.
Summary: I had high hopes for this product. I've already got a Vodafone 3G mobile dongle but of course it's tied to the Vodafone network. It would have been good to be able to put either the Vodafone SIM or the SIM from my regular phone into a single dongle so I could use whichever network gave me the best...
Summary: I bought this for a friend who needs to have access to his internet in random places. The device is very useful in that it has a SIM slot. So a data SIM card can be used to enable internet access on a laptop by plugging it through USB slot. Very fast download speeds, over 20Mb.
