    I'm looking into a new laptop and would like to use 3G data. Many of the SIM deals though include minutes and text. Is it possible to get a 3g dongle that also supports voice and text using a bluetooth or usb headset or something? (Or can you not put a SIM onlt deal SIM into a datacard?)

    Giffgaff do a data only goody bag for your type of usage - SIM Only Deals and Plans | giffgaff.com
    or you can just use PAYG with their SIM:
    Calls and Tariffs to UK mobiles and Landlines | giffgaff.com
    Using VOIP software such as Skype you can use a data only deal to make phone calls on your laptop. Text messages over the internet is often included with mobile phone deals, or you can sign up for a text service
    Some SIM providers wont like you doing it, but others like Giffgaff are happy for you to use their SIM for data only - read their T&C's to see if you are allowed to do this.

    If you go with Giffgaff get somebody to 'introduce you' and you will get £5 of free credit (and so do they).
