Hi Frank, it appears that 3 don't really care about the device you're using to tether with, as long as they get paid for the bandwidth you use. I've used an unlocked (was originally on T-Mobile) N-Series phone with their prepaid Mobile Broadband service for a while, and I haven't heard anything at

Many thanks, Fergus Vodafone say their PAYG dongle doesn't work on Macs: This product is not Mac compatible (from their website - and confirmed by the Vodafone store). T-Mobile dongles are Mac happy, but have no coverage at all in Falmouth apparently. 3 are Mac happy, but I'm told the
