USB Dongle

My daughter has ordered herself a playbook and I note it only has a micro usb dock. Can one use a USB 2.0 A Female To Micro Male Adapter Cable to use an Orange (EE) USB dongle for accessing the internet etc when way from home and in a no WiFi area.

Answers would be appreciates asap as she is going away on her hols in a few days and wants to be able to access the internet cheaply whilst away. If this is not the correct route can you please advise the correct route.

Re: USB Dongle

In a word. No.

 

She will need to take the SIM out of the dongle and get something like an unlocked Huawei E586 which is a portable wifi router (mifi) You put the SIM in the mifi then connect playbook to it using wifi.
