Been using a 3 mobile BB for about 5 year with a Huawei E160G dongle. It is used every working day of the week for 6 to 7 hours a day. It connects my laptop to the net which is my mobile office running business social network, a few email pages, ebay, and a few forum pages that are open all the time. On average I use 3 gig a month occasionally it only lasts 3 week.
I always get full signal strength (100% of the time). 30% of the time I have no problems with the service. 30% is very slow and 40% I can be rebooting my mobile BB every 10 mins to surf due to ‘you’re not connected to a network’ messages . Sometime I even seem to use large amount of data (today 99mb in just 3 hours) while just signed in to site but doing nothing.
So my questions:
1) Do I need to update my dongle?
2) Are there any buttons to push with 3 (metaphorically) to improve my speed and connectivity?
3) Is 3 still the cheapest and best?
4) Why does my data consumption change from day to day even when doing the same?
May thanks for any help – happy new year Paul
