My desire isn't used for much, except tethering @ conferences / away from home. It's 2ish yrs old & utterly scuttlefucked. Serially crashing & getting stuck in a reboot loop, and it'll often take 10-15 attempts to get it restarted. Wiping all data, factory resets, etc, haven't changed this. I really haven't enjoyed android, but IIUC it's pretty much the only option for tethering...? How much / how arrange able are 3g dongles? I'm well over the end of my contract, but tbh am unsure whether I want to renew, or wait 6 months til I'm in employment & have a better idea of how much traveling (etc) I'll be doing. Any thoughts - cheap & efficient tethering, dongles, & non-Android hotspot-capable phones - greatly appreciated.
