Can anyone recommend a good prepaid broadband connection with the wireless usb connections? Do all of them give you a new IP each time you reconnect with them?

Pre-paid blackberry or an unlocked iphone, the blackberry would be cheaper and you don't need to get the phone service if you don't want just the data service which is about $40 a month, you can register it in your stealth details, have your emails forwarded to your bberry and the ip changes automaticaly each time you log in.

Broadband cards are still pretty expensive.. if you find a good deal let me know.

The 4G one I use now is around $70 a month at the moment.

EFIL4OREV, The Virgin Mobile Broadband card has a static ip, it's unable to be changed.. It would work for one account but not multiple.

You can get a used blackberry on ebay for less than what some of those usb sticks cost, there's 1 up now for about $25. Also I have the Virgin mobile usb stick, like Lakeman said the ip can't be changed.

A good Australian deal would be irelevant for you aspkin lol.

Lakeman did you look at the "plan specifics"? It clearly says IP address....Dynamic.

Jbunts could you possible link me to the Black berry? Would it be possible to use my prepaid optus mobile connection in it and also use it for internet?

Not all dynamic ip's can be changed right away some might take hours, days or weeks before they can change.

Here's a link for a reburbished one from T-mobile.

EFIL4OREV, Jbuntz is right. I know I had mine for about a week and it did NOT change, so I took it back. It obviously won't work for most people since you can't change the ip..

I thought T-mobile did, I'm currently using verizon but was going to switch to pre-paid. I assumed if they have pre-paid blackberries then they would have a pre-paid data plan to go with it. I haven't called around to ask yet.

I guess I'll have to check in to it some more, I've heard of people tethering prepaid blackberries but didn't get their provider. Tetherberry should work with boost try it and see if it does, there's other providers out there if it doesn't Maxis, Celcom, Digi etc.

There is a way but Boost is on Sprint and you only get a pool of like 10 ips. Your better off getting the prepaid Verizon Mobile broadband works like a charm! I also heard that Virgin Mobile has a blackberry too but again it's on Sprint other then Tmobile & Metro Piece of Sh*t those are the only prepaid blackberry but all of them are known to block tethering!

I don't know about Australia just search for a used blackberry on ebay and use tetherberry to get it set up as a modem, of course you wanna check with the seller and your prepaid carrier if that will work, if not there's other ways to get it tethered just search google.

Yes tetherberry does work but like I said you only get a pool of 10 of the same ips and that's it. So it would be pretty hard to make that work there are others as well pdanet and mobi shark too.

same way... just use your mobile as a modem...just go to a service provider (optus, vodafone etc) and get a seperate sim that is a broadband internet one... can use your usual one but will cost more...
