TMobile mobile bb question


[link to this post]
 
Early this year I bought a T Mobile mobile broadband dongle with the 3 month package prepaid. Never had a problem with it at all.
I lost the dongle and last month bought another of the 3 month prepaid package.

My problem is. On the first one I bought, it auto installed the TMobile internet manager, so you could easily see when the 90 days started and all kinds of other usage stats.

The one I currently have must be a different model. When i plugged it in it connected fine etc. but the only interface you get is a web based interface which has some basic details but the stats which is what I want are extremely limited. Apart from this problem, all is ok.

Is there a way of installing an internet manager that will work with my new dongle, or is there another way to access the usage stats?

The dongle is a Huawei 610 e3131. Btw on the web interace thingy there is an Updates button, have tried that, is says all is already current.

Thanks in advnace.

No idea on that but matey if you go on ebay you can get 12 months of unlimited net for £20!

I have one - there is a 500MB FUP for streaming a month but I have never really been stopped from doing gigs.

I was using an E3131 on a job last month. The guy assured me it is completely unlimited for the 90 days.
I know this doesn't answer your question directly, but hope it might help.

Thanks anyway, something to ponder, but really you would have thought a simple usage monitor would be the obvious thing to include in the dongle software. Oh well.

Yes, I'd also be interested in that link coventry.

I have SIM + dongle from Orange, which does have build in software, with usage display.

However at my house I get a 3G+ service from T-Mobile (Orange only goes to 3G),
so I nearly always switch network to T-Mobile, which is bit of a pain as it takes about 2 min.

I wonder what will happen when it all goes EE eeeee.....?

Hmm oddly enough he does not list them anymore.

This is the guy who did them - maybe e-mail him?

http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/xceldepot

There is someone selling them but for £61 a year (and stupid people are buying them for that) here (he;s clearly bought them and resold them)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12-Months-Free-Mobile-Broa...

I got one for £19,99 normal size my dad got one for his Ipad same price

It definitely works. Here's the t-mobile page last time I used it.
