[maemo-users] 3G dongle connected to N900?

Hi there,

I don't know if this is possible with current software or hardware, but here is my question:

Is it possible to connect a 3G dongle, via USB cable and running the USB host software on the N900, providing you with cellular data access?

The reasoning behind it is: certain operators will provide tarriffs for data only, but I don't want to miss calls when my voice SIM is out.

I am guessing the N900 would need some USB dongle host software. Or would it? Do USB 3G dongle have necessary software/hardware themselves.

Any comments? Thoughts?
