In addition to smartphones and tablets, you can use a USB dongle to pass the Air SIM connection to your computer.

Step 4: Start

Once registration is complete, check to see that you have an Internet connection.

Turn your Wi-Fi or other communications settings off and verify that you are connected to the Air SIM network. Try using your web browser or other app to get online. Is it connected?
