I was browsing your website looking for security with 3g broadband / mobile internet.
I use Virgin broadband 3G (Huewai E160e), and where the virgin mobile sends me WEP/WAP settings etc, there is nothing with my VBB dongle.
MY virgin dongle also uses an Access number: *99#
Your site is one of the only ones that has any info on 3G.
