I purchased one at Tukcom in Pattaya 4 days ago. Several of the places on the mobile phone floor (first floor) have them. Just ask them for an AIS Aircard. They will even set it up for you.

 

Cost 1700bht including simcard with 30 hours of internet access. To top up i just have to get a 12Call voucher thingy from a 7/11.

 

Using it now. Not ultra fast but its liveable.

Try looking in the online app store for you phone OS. I know on my Windows Mobile phone back home I can get a piece of software that will turn the phone into a router going through the mobile network to get to the internet (Note: I haven't tried this software I've just seen it in the app store). I would think that there is something similar for Android phone in the Google app store.

 

I'm guessing as you bought an iPad, then you've probably got an iPhone to boot. I've no idea if you can find any software to turn your iPhone into a router. My guess would be no given Apples Desire to lock everything down (It always surprises me you can even turn the phone on), but it might be worth trying.

 

Otherwise no idea mate. Best of luck in your hunt.

You can use the I phone as a modem but in the uk you have to pay a tethering charge of £15 a month plus the network charges. All decent phones that are internet capable can be used as modems and the software is usually on the disc that comes with them.

I know for example my samsung tocco can be used, and i setup my mates n96 Nokia for him to use as a modem.

The major issue with the pocket 3G router like the MiFi is that the battery only lasts 3-4 hours, this is the main reason I do not have one yet. Also, some support 3G at 850 mhz, and some at 900 mhz. There is no MiFi that does both, which means that in some countries it will not work, or will be limited to certain carriers that have built their 3G network using the different frequencies.

 

If you have a jailbroken iPhone you can run iTether, PDANet or MyWi. For only a bit more cash then the Mifi you could get an old 3G iPhone or a 3GS and then use that as your access device, as long as you know how to jailbreak and do not wish to share to another device such as a friend's laptop, or a PSP or something.

 

If you jailbreak your iPad as well, you can install iTether which allows you to tether to your iPhone via bluetooth, using less iPhone battery then PDA or MyWi.

There are also other phones on the market now, many Android phones and older Windows Mobile HTC ones that all support creating a PAN (personal area network) by creating a wifi network.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
