Questions & Answers

11/09/2009 shauna: if you top-up a 30day to up,does this have to be used within the 30 days or can it be used 30 days over 6 months as an example

SteveF: No, you'll need to use the credit up within 30 days or it will be lost.

SteveF: No, you'll need to use the credit up within 30 days or it will be lost.

10/09/2009 markymark: Can I put my o2 sim out of my contract phone in this as I have free web bolt-on?

SteveK: I think you would have to contact O2, It may invalidate your warranty. They may be able to point you in the direction of a cable to connect your phone up to the computer. This then works like a modem. Saves you buying something you already have.

07/09/2009 martyn: will my o2dongle work on a friends pc?obviously works on my laptop but he wants to buy one but people tell us it wont work on the pc..... is this true??

David J: As long as the PC is windows based, there is no reason why a mobile broadband dongle shouldn't work

SteveK: All dongles work on most laptops, you will need a laptop with USB2. The only problem is the signal strength in some areas. You can contact O2 directly or via their web site to check the signal for the area in which the laptop will be mainly used.

21/08/2009 david: I have a toshiba satelite model number PSL33E - 03L031EN will this laptop be able to use your dongle?

26/07/2009 susan lakin: sue: If I change my laptop will I still be able to use the same dongle and be able to get the same benefits
