Features and specifications of Reliance 3G USB dongle

The design of Reliance 3G USB dongle is really attractive. It has a curvy body with rounded edges and has a very slim look as compared to other dongles in this range. It is just 5mm thin, 3 cm long and 1 cm broad, making it easy to carry and handle it anywhere we go. It has a signal indicator on its upper side to indicate the type of network i.e. it flashes red when no signal is detected, green while using a 2G/GPRS network and blue while in a 3G network. So, its features regarding the design are really worth to be appreciated as it has turned successful in attracting customers in India to go for this mini internet device.

Connectivity and compatibility
Reliance 3G USB dongle supports 2G as well as 3G networks via a SIM. You can use the SIM of any network service provider like Reliance, Aircel, Airtel, Vodafone, Idea etc (recommended is Reliance) provided your device is unlocked. Here Unlocked means that by default, this device only supports the SIM from the Reliance network and if you want to use the SIM of any other network service provider, you need to unlock (root) this device. The unlocking can be done by taking the help of the retailer from where you buy it by paying some extra charges about Rs 100.

Other features
One of the main features of Reliance 3G USB dongle is that while using the internet, it automatically compresses the data received/sent to save your internet data balance and thus is best for those who are using the limited data usage plan via theirs ISPs. Another feature of this mini device is that it synchronizes the contacts present in your SIM to help you to take the backup of your contacts on your PC. The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is also a plus feature of the Reliance 3G USB dongle as it helps us to track the lost device when detected on a network.

The price of Reliance 3G USB dongle in India is Rs 1,499 (approx.)

The spec sheet of the dongle is quite impressive. But the network by reliance is most unreliable in some parts of the nation. It is good to see that the dongle can be unlocked to be able to use SIMs of other networks. Yet, article could have contained a method to unlock it by the user himself - if possible. However, nice information one must agree.

We have great connectivity coverage of Idea. So I am using Idea 3G USB dongle. Before I was with Reliance but I have bad experience with Reliance dongle. I was unable to get coverage signal in my room. One more problem is customer service of reliance. Whenever I have called them they have noted down my complaint but no response till yet. In Gujarat Reliance does not provide good coverage mainly in remote areas and villages. Even small towns and cities in Gujarat face network problem. Most of Gujarat's residents use Tata Docomo or go with Idea Internet.
