I have GPRS enabled in my mobile. And I connect my mobile to the PC to browse internet. But I am looking for a device specific for this purpose, as my mobile gets heated up when I connect through PC. Is there any device to which I can insert my GPRS enabled SIM and plug in that device to USB port of my PC and browse internet. Please can anybody tell the name of the device and a good manufacturer of the same.
I posted the same question in Yahoo! answers. But didnt get a response So Ranchers please tell me if there is actually a device of this sort.

Thanks in advance

There are several options:
If you are looking for speed. GPRS sucks, You can use the faster CDMA based USB dongle. In India Tata Indicom and Reliance provides the same. which I would recommend.

But if you hardly browse but want to use your existing SIM card, get in touch with your provider:
Aritel But I am not sure if you can replace the SIM inside them.
Similar USB modems are provided by Idea, DOCOMO, Vodafone and others..

I agree. Here's the link:
