    Three
    Boxed-base is still in the plastic wrapper- not used- small USB cable. No idea what these are going for- happy to sell for the going rate on here if you know what that is, otherwise I can take a look

    I have a Huawei E585 MiFi unit. I have had it for at least two years from new.

    It is on 3. I do not have a sim to test, but have switched it on and my laptop finds it as a connectible hotspot and connects no problem. I can not see any issues with it, we just do not have use for it now.

    No original USB cable, however I have included a new one with it. Battery life, I have no idea, we always had it plugged into the wall 90% of the time (used in the caravan) So not even sure how long it should last if I tested it.

    Would like £28 inc RMRD as I am not sure of the going rate!

    Thanks

    Hi, I do not have the box for it. The original 'plug' I do have though which I would supply.

    I try to be honest with description! If you look at it front on, part of the '3' is wearing but very slightly. If you hold it in the light, there are noticable scratches on the display part. The back as a few scratches also.

    Happy to upload pictures though doing the best I can to see the worst!

    Also, it is the black one.

    Thanks

    It's black- great condition. USB cable goes straight into the bottom of the unit so I never bothered with the base. Assume it is locked to 3. Could put a picture up tomorrow pm. Cheers

    The E586 has been replaced on Three with the E5331 for the time being :) It doesn't have the 9/10 wifi user support at once only having 5 which is plenty for me really :D
    I went for the E5331 from Three myself £49.99 with 1GB usage and £59.99 if want 3GB and going through Topcashback getting £13.17 cashback on that.

    I prefer O2 Customer service but ive used Three and find signal usually okay though customer service can be hard work.. They have said that they wont be charging extra for the 4G service which was another bonus for my choice :D
