    UK 3g data sims

    Hi all,
    Just got a Xoom 3g (UK model).
    What do you think is the best deal at the moment for a 3g sim on payg?

    Iv'e read a few posts about tethering through BT. But my HTC desire does not support this.
    As I have a unlimited data phone contract, is it possible to change the phone?
    Are there any UK models that support BT tethering?

    Thanks in advance.j.

    Why don't you just tether through Wi-Fi ? My son sets up his desire as a hotspot and my xoom connects with no problems . I use my Samsung galaxy s2 as a hotspot all the time , and that works really well too. No need to faf about with bluetooth at all.

    moto driod doesn't work on Xoom with tether!

    moto driod doesn't work on Xoom with tether. My ipad1 and my new iPad 2 pick it up fine. My Xoom doesn't even let original period with rooted wireless tether show in the list.

    wifi tethering's OK, but you have to keep turning the hotspot on and off if you want to avoid a flat phone battery when you're out and about. And you don't want that...
    Much better, I think, to use the in-built 3G radio if you have it. It doesn't have to be expensive...I picked up a T-mobile SIM on eBay 2 weeks ago with 0.5 GB/month data for 6 months for 9. Just works....and pretty fast...good enough for Netflix (though the 500MB might not last long if it becomes a habit...)

    Hey , glad it worked . Personally I find it easier to keep my phone charged while I'm on the road so using my phone data plan makes much more sense . If you prefer to use 3g it may be worth checking out three.co .uk who seem to offer some good deals .
