    Usb and 3g

    Hello all,
    Just been asked by a friend who has just purchased a ipad2, can you connect a USB dongle to connect to the Internet via 3G. I know you can connect a USB and transfer files but wasn't sure if the same would work with mobile broadband USB. Is this possible or not?

    No, that is why you need to buy a 3G version iPad. The best thing to do is instead of buying a USB 3G dongle, is to get a portable 3G wireless pocket wifi instead. It shares the 3G connection with devices via wifi.

    If he has a phone that's capable of producing a wifi hotspot, he could connect to that hotspot for Internet access.
