the android version is 2.2
My first E230 when connected through transfer box came up with U drive faulty/error
this was replaced with another now this one does not transmit or receive.There is no
light indications on dongle and no messages on tablet.Have tried Wi-Fi its ok have loaded picture files through to unit using transfer box that is ok as well.Hope this
extra info is of some use.
I have plugged a flash drive in and veiwed photos and also use a keyboard in the usb ports of the transfer box.I use the same cable with the dongle for my laptop.I havent got a mouse handy to try right at present but in a couple of hours time when I am at work I will.I know its a silly question but the seller mentioned it ,the sim card is used the modom and not seperate in the tablet.It seems as you stated the dongle doesnt seem
to be getting any power from the tablet but the previous one did.
The transfer box is also called a USB interface It is the item you can attach two usb I/P
& the ethernet cable to and this plugs into the side of the tablet.
& the ethernet cable to and this plugs into the side of the tablet.I have used and tried the same interface for all my uses.
the E230 has a normal usb connection and the connection to the tablet is different that
takes the interface its flat and wider
