Re: USB DataCard advice!

I have used tata phonton +, as others have mentioned, its speeds are pathetic, you get roughly around 256kbps, which is just about enough for browsing, but not good for the money you pay.
I have also used the Docomo wifi hub, the speeds are good but the device and the plans itself are pretty expensive...

I also have a Micromax MMX 310G universal hub, you can read its review here: Micromax MMX310G review
Also, here is the review for the Huawei E1550 USB modem, which I feel is better than the Micromax one... Huawei E1550 USB modem review

btw, hope you know about the BSNL 3G trick.....still works at some places... :)

Re: USB DataCard advice!

Ok, after reading whole the thread, I'm putting my suggestion by preference...

1. UMG 1831 + 3G SIM(Vodafone / BSNL). If 3G can be afforded, otherwise...
2. Tata Photon+

Re: USB DataCard advice!

My dad is still apprehensive about the UMG 1831 ebay deal. So, i have decided upon the micromax USB Modem, can't remember the exact model name/number. It's white in colour and the packaging is yellow/white. It's max speed is 7.2 Mbps and supports memory card upto 16 GB :'(

The dealer quoted 2.5k...i have to bargain with that

New Unlocked Data Card

I want to buy a unlocked data card online (ebay preferred). I have shortlisted Huawei E173 and Huawei E1750. Is there any other option for me having download speed 7.2 mbps and upload speed 5.76 mbps? Do these cards have any known issues?

All right, I have created a general thread for EVDO/HSDPA Datacard queries.
