I love my mifi! i use skype for my phone.. and use an old prepaid phone just in case i need to make an emergency call... 5gigs of data a month for 50 bucks! so worth it... if you aren't streaming movies and music
I have Tf300 model without 3g capability. What I do when there is no WiFi signal is available is I connect to my mobile phone which has Internet option (it is not a smart phone) via blue tooth and I gain access to internet no problem. Of course, network charges apply.
I remember back when the TF201 arrived Asus recommended their own Asus WL-330NG adapter for 3G (now apparently renamed to 330N3G, but I believe they are the same. NB: Despite the name they _don't_ have built-in 3G support. But read on). Well, that one is actually a tiny little Ethernet & wi-fi router/access point.. but it can also handle a 3G USB dongle, for example the Huawei 3G dongles. I haven't tried my WL-330NG with my Huawei dongle, but a colleague did with his. It works fine. So then it's just to connect to the WL-330NG with wi-fi and you're all set. (In short: Plug the 3G USB dongle into the USB A socket on the WL-330NG, then power the WL-330NG either with its own power supply or from the Transformer KEYBOARD/DOCK's USB port - the WL-330NG has a separate microUSB port for that purpose. (NB: I haven't actually tried powering it from my TF201 or TF700T, only from my notebook. But as the keyboard/dock can manage some USB disks it should work I think. It depends a bit on the 3G dongle - some early ones were very power hungry). Or from whatever other USB power source you may have available (including in-car USB power adapters).
That WL-330NG is a very versatile (and cheap) gadget in its own right - check the link above.
And, as the thread isn't just about 3G but simply 'with no WiFi Internet available', the Asus dongle also provides wi-fi when there's only wired Ethernet available (provided that Ethernet will actually work for you, it's easiest if it will give DHCP access to any device connected). I use this method sometimes during my travels. NB: There's one quirk with the WL-330NG/N3G.. it has some problems with DHCP renewal, so occasionally it happens (after 10 minutes or 3 hours or whatever) that despite a signal the wi-fi becomes unresponsive. I just unplug and re-plug power to the 330NG if this happens and it's good again.
3G Android phone:
Another method I use successfully (and the only one I had at home when I got my TF201 last year) is using my Android 3G phone as an access point. My phone has Cyanogenmod 7.1 installed and there I just select wi-fi sharing and it's all set (I think that is part of standard Android now, but I don't have a standard Android phone anymore, just my Cyanogenmod one).
I thought that this would be a huge battery drain on my phone but it works surprisingly well. I still use this method in a pinch.
I use Easy Tether Pro which connects my tablet to my phone via Bluetooth and it is the very first app I paid for. The paid version allows HTTPS but you can try the free one of course. Tether app on phone, tablet app on tablet. Used it originally with my net-book but seems to stay updated with the times and been using it for maybe 3 years now successfully?
Hope that helps and I'm grandfathered with AT&T with unlimited data so that's a relief.
Does anyone know of a way to make the OS think it's connected to WiFi, when it's on Ethernet? Some of the best remote control apps REQUIRE a "WiFi" connection (they should just require a NETWORK connection, but instead require WiFi!!!), and my tablet is using the Ethernet port on my connect dock.
In the future, I'm also planning on getting a HDMI Stick, and I'd never do video over WiFi!!!!

Is there any Dongle or netstick that make possible to get 3G on my Asus?
