Micromax has recently launched a new data card Micromax MMX353G which is the higher version of Micromax MMX352G.After the successful operation of MMX352 finally this device is in market. It allows you to surf the net by inserting any normal sim card in the device. Though it is designed to surf the net using 3G services but it also supports 2G very well. This device when used with 2G SIM Cards gives very good internet speed. If you compare it with other devices like mobile phones which are 2G enabled or any other device like photon whiz or reliance net connect, user will experience a very fare downloading speed.
This device can be used for voice calling also when you are connected through your laptop or computer.
According to me its a smart choice because if you go for any other data card or services like netconnect or any other provider, you pay around 8 times for your limited usage per month. But if you are using Micromax MMX 353G, you can have a speed nearly equal to the internet speed provided by these data cards.
Here is one more thing to keep in mind that do not get confused by its 3G terminology because it works fine with 2G SIMs also. No matter which SIM you are using. It could be Airtel,Aircel,Reliance,Alcatel or anything but the device is same which is Micromax MMX 353G. But keep in mind- 3G has no comparison with 2G. So if you want 3G speed you will have to use 3G enabled SIM with the device.
Few setting user have to do before using the device with 2G/3G SIM.
- Insert SIM in the device and then insert the device into USB. Automatically it will prompt for software installation.
- Install the drivers and restart.
- After restart click on the MMX353G icon to open the connection manager.
- Click on Settings >> Network Mode >> Select Edge/GPRS Only
- Click on Network Selection >> Click Manual >> It will open a pop up window to select your network >> Select the current which is your inserted sim
- Last step is to create connection profile: For this step go to settings >> Connection profile >> ADD >> Choose from predefined list >> Chose your sim and set it as default
