    Most 3G USB devices have to install some software to work properly. Also I don't even think that they are compatible with android. Just Windows and OSX.

    As I stated a 3G USB stick will not work with an android tablet. How ever a MiFi Hotspot would work just fine.

    Quicksilver was correct. You can't just plug the USB modem. Most require software to talk and establish the connection. There are hacks for the A500 for certain modems. Lots of work to get it working. I opted for the 3G router. Using the Zoom Travel Router. The router connects via cellular 3G, then shares it via wifi to my A500.

    Though I hate to use my ZT-180 as an example (seems I can't escape that bad decision), but I bought Verizon's aircard (the pay-as-you-go option) and was able to get it to work with that Android tablet. I first plugged the USB 3G modem in a Windows PC, then installed the software. Next I went through the process of activating the device on the Windows PC, slapped a few dollars on the card and made sure it worked using my PC. Once confirmed, I disabled the autorun feature (on the Windows PC using HyperTerminal). Next, I slapped the USB 3G modem in the ZT-180's USB slot, went into Android->Settings and turned on the 3G option. A few secs later, I opened up the default browser and I was joyously surfing the web, listening to Pandora, etc. I haven't tested the 3G USB modem on the A500 but will be doing so soon. I hope it works!

    EDIT: Just noticed this was in the FAQ section. There is another post asking the same question in the HELP section. Please read adilz's response.

    If you are using custom firmware you can use a 3G dongle check the a500 thread on xda
