    Hi Jamie! Welcome to the forums!

    I actually have no clue about using 3g dongles but I did search your issue in google and found this list. Supposedly, this is a list of 3g dongles that would work with your tablet.

    These are the supported 3G dongles by the current factory firmware:

    (2)HUAWEI E220
    (2)HUAWEI E230
    (2)HUAWEI E169G
    (2)HUAWEI E160X
    (2)HUAWEI E1750
    (2)HUAWEI E173
    (2)HUAWEI W8
    (2)HUAWEI E153
    (2)HUAWEI E153u6
    (2)Alcatel AL720
    (2)ZTE MF190
    (2)ZTE MF110

    (2)ZTE AC2736


    Which 3G Dongles are supported on Uberoid ?

    For those who have bought a netbook and failed to connect it to your
    subscribed 3G service with a USB 3G dongle, fret not. I first have a Chinese
    netbook and later buy a Chinese 3G dongle. I was not that lucky that when I plug
    in the dongle, it just works. I have to sweat to make it work. Hope
    what I have done may be of help to others.

    My system:
    WonderMedia WM8650 netbook
    Android 2.2 Froyo, kernel,
    Build number generic-eng2.2 Froyo Ver 1.5.5-20110920.043830

    In /system/bin, there must be files chat3g, ppp3g and usb_modeswitch.
    In /etc, there must be file usb_modeswitch.d

    Step 1
    Set netbook to Settings->Applications->Unknown sources
    to allow installation of non-Market apps.

    Step 2
    Download and install z4root to root the netbook.
    Install Terminal Emulator (TE). This will allow you to have root or su privilege
    in command line mode. To do this, run the TE and key in "su".

    Step 3
    Get the right version of usb_modeswitch
    In the TE, type "usb_modeswitch". If it is already in the system, it will
    display the info to run the command correctly. At the ending will be the info
    about its version. Mine is 1.1.9.
    If it is not in your system, download it.

    Step 4
    Get the Vendor and Product ID of the 3G dongle. My 3G dongle brand is "HSUPA",
    from China.
    My system does not recognise the command "lsusb". I have to use
    "more /proc/bus/usb/devices".
    It reveals that the "HSUPA" 3G dongle has Vendor=1c9e Product=f100

    With the ID known, check through /etc/usb_modeswitch.d. This is a dir
    containing the config files for many 3G devices. There will be a file named
    1c9e_f000. Copy this file over to /system/bin and rename it usb_modeswitch.conf.
    This file caters to a list of devices. Edit it for the one device of 1c9e:f000

    Step 5
    Issue the two commands:
    echo “1c9e 9605” >/sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
    usb_modeswitch -I -W -c /system/bin/usb_modeswitch.conf

    Issue command "dmesg" to read through what the system has done with the two
    commands issued. The device will be switched to modem configuration. Besides
    the storage device, there will be four ttyUSB devices, from ttyUSB0 to ttyUSB3.

    Command "more /proc/bus/usb/devices" will reveal more about how the system is
    recognizing the 3G dongle as a device now.

    Command "ls /dev/ttyU*" will confirm the existence of devices ttyUSB0 to ttyUSB3.

    NB: Use only ttyUSB3 as the device for 3G modem.

    Step 6
    cd to dir /etc/ppp/peers. Create a file gprs3g with content as follows.

    #user Not required
    #password Not required
    #unit 2
    connect "/system/bin/chat3g -v -t 50 -s -f /etc/ppp/gprs-connect-chat"

    cd to dir /etc/ppp. Edit file gprs-connect-chat as follows.

    # chat script for HSUPA (Omega Technology) 3G
    #ECHO ON
    TIMEOUT 20
    TIMEOUT 20
    '' \nAT+CFUN=1
    OK AT&F0
    OK ATE0V1&C1&D2
    OK ATE0
    #OK AT+CGREG=1
    OK AT+CGDCONT=1, <data obtained from command AT+CGDCONT?>
    #OK AT+COPS=?
    #OK AT+COPS?
    #OK ATZ
    #OK ATDT*99***1#
    #OK AT+CMEE=2
    OK ATD*99#
    CONNECT ''

    Those commented out AT commands can be used for diagnostics as well as to obtain
    the correct values for settings.

    Use AT+CGDCONT? to get the setting for network.
    Use that setting in the AT+CGDCONT=1 command.
    Use AT+CGCLASS=? followed by AT+CGCLASS? to detect class of network available
    and that for which the device is set for. For mine, it is Class A for both ends.
    Use the AT+COPS=? command to detect the networks available.
    AT+COPS? To reveal the current network.

    Step 7
    Go to netbook Settings->Wireless & Network->Wi-Fi, disable WiFi by removing the

    Return to TE to issue command "ppp3g call gprs3g"

    Wait about 5 seconds or a notification sound.
    Issue command "ifconfig -a". There will be a net device ppp0 with inet address
    and p-t-p address.

    Now when you start your browser, you should be able to surf the web!

    Lastly, put the three commands

    echo &#8220;1c9e 9605&#8221; >/sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/option1/new_id
    usb_modeswitch -I -W -c /system/bin/usb_modeswitch.conf
    ppp3g call gprs3g

    in a shell script and chmod the file to 755.

    Sir Technosinga, I am also stuck up with my new AOC Breeze MG70DR-8 Tablet. I bought a Intex 3.4G Datacard(unlocked) for it. But unfortunately my tablet is not recognizing it by any means. The Dongle is Ok, as i have checked it with my PC. I am afraid that the tab may not support this dongle. So total waste of money. Thats why need your kind help as I am completely new in the android field. :confused:

    Thanks in advance sir
