    Looking for a cheap 3G to tether with my mac. Bluetooth or usb doesn't matter. Good battery life wouldn't hurt. But apart from these aspects and being cheap there's nothing i need. I just need the phone to have some 3g internet in my summer house a couple of days a year.

    Cheers for all suggestions in advance,

    Umm.. Do you guys not have like PrePay mobile broadband in the USA? I'm in the UK and have a broadband stick where I pay $3 for 24hours if I want to use it, or $22.50/Month. That gets me HSDPA. That's gonna work a heck of a lot better than a 3G phone, especially if it's 'cheap'.

    Or maybe even a 1 month contract mobile broadband would work.

    In spain not the us. We got €1 a day 3G on prepay here. Use an iphone 2g for all my calls and happy with it for the time being. Just need a cheap device to tether the macbook in the holiday house.
