It is suprising how guys come up with their most def. answers the only thing that is def here is that there are already lappies, even netbooks with 3g slots. Wake up and be compliant, no offence meant. As per the dell you may need to cofirm if it is not already locked to the network. They do it to give the lappy away cheaply for internet connectivity on their network, but they make sure you can only use it on their own network, just like our dear mtn will always do.
