The local Vodafone shop has been allowing me to use one of their K3565 dongles to see if I can use in with my laptop, loaded with the Debian Lenny Linux distribution. I can connect to the dongle, but cannot connect to the Vodafone ISP.
I wonder if the reason for no ISP connection is because the dongle is locked, as I have not paid for the dongle itself or for any on line time.
If the dongle is locked, can it be unlocked to test it at the shop before paying. Naturally if I can connect to the ISP I will pay the relevant charges.
