    Anyone successfully using 3's Mifi and their iPad in the UK?

    Yes, works perfectly.
    What I like is that I have a poor 3G signal downstairs at home, but I can leave the mifi in the window upstairs and move around freely with my iPad.

    Thanks for that - getting rather annoyed with the wifi on the iPad and not being able to connect in places where i have no issues with my iPhone.

    Works perfect, of course as long as you are in a 3UK 3G signal area.

    Also search out the alternate firmware for the 3Mifi, it comes from a HK operator and allows web admin and better auto startup and power options.

    This site has a good guide.... http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1058534564

    I was thinking of getting a mi-fi today. What are you all using in terms of data? PAYG or contract?

    ^ Get a MiFi dongle from ebay unlocked. Works with any carrier network then. I'm using one bought in the UK with o2 in Ireland. No problems.

    Now there is a thought - i already have a Vodafone 3G USB stick - so in theory if i get an unlocked MiFi dongle i could stick the SIM in that and happy days.
