    Hello all,

    I require 3/4G capability on my Macbook Pro. I've scoped the market and so far can only find dongles, which are fine but chunky looking things.

    Is there a more discrete solution?

    Best,

    UPG.

    There a MiFi routers which work with SIM cards and put out a WiFi you could join.

    I would, but it would drain my phone battery. Y'know, iPhone baterry life and all that :p

    And if you connect your iPhone via USB to your Mac?

    Sadly only what simsaladimbamba said works since :apple: is refusing to integrate cellular into their macbooks. :mad:

    Another one for tether to the phone.

    I work on call regularly and I tether my phone via wifi to my MBA.

    Putting aside the obvious potential speed issues that may occur, it's a solution that works well for me.

    I too USB charge my phone (Android) via the MBA if I expect to be dealing with the call for a while.
