I was very lucky to win a 32Gb WIFI IPad in our works christmas raffle. Unfortunately, funds would not stretch to buying one with the 3G version, but beggars can't be choosers. I have a USB Broadband Tmobile Huawai Dongle that I normally use with the laptop when away from home. Now I have the IPad, which takes up a lot less space in the bag instead of the Laptop, I would like to be able to connect the dongle to the IPad so that I can connect to the net anywhere when a wifi hotspot is not available. As the USB lead that comes with the IPad connects to the PC for Itunes ect to transfer data as well as charge the unit, it should therefore be able to connect via an female/female usb adaptor to the Dongle. Is this possible, has anybody managed to get it to work, if so how? Does it need a special App for it? Why has Apple not already done it? It would make the basic wifi IPad much more useable and give the mobile phone network providers a new way or making money from it.
Thanks for your help in advance.
