I went into my local T- because I wanted to get set up with a PAYG mobile for my netbook. Sure, I can find wi-fi hotspots about, but that isn’t going to work when I want to go sit in the park on a .

Well a little research, and this is such an easy solution.

Fire up your netbook.

Using an alternative means of connecting to the internet, do the following:

  1. Open a console.
  2. Cut and paste the line below:
sh -c ' http://www.betavine.net//bcm_lucid_install.sh -O //bcm.sh && /usr/bin/xterm -e  sh //bcm.sh'

Let it do its work; it will install the Vodaphone connect Manager.

Then plug in your T-Mobile , and fire up the installed VCM. It will find your stick.

Click on connect. You’re done, except for one more thing. You need to go to the T-Mobile site http://t-mobile.co.uk/payperdayhome and set up your first day’s top-up.

That’s about it. Any Questions, drop me a line.
