Hi,I need to setup an internet connection at my place where the usage would be pretty low. Can i buy a cheap unlocked 3g modem (USB) off of ebay and use any SIM with it? Also, can i use the Rs 99 2GB 2G pack with the dongle? because vodafone doesn't officially offer this plan for a dongle.Please suggest what dongle i should go for.Thanks !

You can use any plan on the dongle. Buy any unlocked dongle from ebay. A 7.2 mbps dongle should cost around 1200-1300 bucks

Cool. Would you suggest any specific dongle, maybe one that doesn't overheat or have other problems? There are so many of them, its a mess! And although ebay dealers provide 6 mth warranty, claiming it is gonna be a headache.Thanks again!

I recently bought a ZTE one for a friend off ebay for 980 bucks. it says Vodafone on it so I guess its the one that Vodafone gives. Working fine till now. Supports 7.2 mbps speeds.
