I'm new to this forum, joined just couple of minutes back. I came here just to find out how many people are suffering with this USB dongle problem in Micromax Funbook.
Now here I want to say something. Micromax Funbook does support any 3G dongle.
Yes you read it right. It is due to marketing policy of Tata Photon, the rumour has spread out that no 3G/CDMA dongle will support in Funbook.
I am a living proof of what I claim. I used a 3G USB dongle of Airtel (Huawei made) with Aircel sim in it today morning to test....and it worked! Works seamless and the speed was just wow in 3G.
Before you come into any such conclusion that I unlocked it or something like that, then I must say I didn't touch a single thing to unlock. It happened automatically.
But certain things I did figure out:
1. Airtel Huawei dongle is an unlocked dongle easily available in market. You need an unlocked dongle with a mobile partner dashboard (that's mobile company software in it).
2. I used Aircel sim into the dongle and the APN came automatically without any problem. I started surfing immediately. My SIM was 3G activated.
I'll try to post pictures of my tab working with dongle as a proof, but maybe today not possible. But please spread the message as this is really happening.
