    Dongle? You need a mobile phone that can work as a wifi hotspot, then connect to that with your xoom.

    Welcome along!
    Cheers

    Hi and welcome

    As Ted says above either tether the xoom to your mobile to use its data or you can get a mifi unit which you put a prepaid mobile broadband sim into to give you data on the go. There is a link below to one on Amazon, very easy to set up and use and if you get your prepay mobile broadband sim from ebay or Amazon sellers it will be much cheaper for you - best value ones are from 3 and are the 3g over 3 months one.

    You cannot actually use a dongle as the xoom does not have usb capability unless you root it - or it does if you download The Nexus media importer app from play and use a host adapter cable but you still won' t be able to use a dongle. Either tether or a mifi (which is a mobile wifi hotspot) will do the job.
