Need a cheap modem phone

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sometimes when I go away from home i need to have internet... So i was thinking of using a mobile phone as a modem for 3g internet.

Im not going to consider a usb 3g modem because they cost around $20 a month and are lock in contracts, also i wont be using over 100mb...

Amaysim currently provide 1mb of data for 5c (AUD) and i have an amaysim card. The only thing i need now is a phone which has:

Bluetooth, Mp3 and the ability to use it as a modem...

preferably nokia, as they are fairly simple to use/reliable

Thanks

Oh, your Australian. Firstly, what sort of coverage do you need? If you need to use it anywhere telstra really is your only choice and frankly you'd be better off getting a phone with a data pack.

Otherwise.... its the same story, USB dongles are way too expensive for what they provide, a phone and tethering is the best way to go.

As for which, wait until I'm back on my computer.
