I'm not very familiar with them, but I would suggest phoning Telecom or Vodafone, whoever is your provider. Or you can do it online if you know where to go to sign in. There should be somewhere in there to top up the modem stick.

Thanks CB...Have sorted it. You just swap Sim cards with the cell phone and then do the same top up as you would the phone. You can also do it on line.
That's cool, glad you got it sorted

One space after full stop, no indenting for paragraphs a line space instead.

Yes, I thought there had been a change from two spaces to one after a fullstop..
Cant remember when the change happened but I hadn't thought about it until it came up in discussion a couple of weeks ago.
I do, and will always put two spaces after a full stop.

#2227 C&P iPad of course is Apple. I'm not anti Apple by any means, but they are a bit restricted in that you can't run third party apps, no java, no flash for instance.
Not entirely true CB, consider over half a mill 3rd party apps to choose from, see C&P here;
You’ll find over 500,000 apps in the App Store in any category: games, lifestyle, social networking, and education, and more. Many of them are free.
And yes Apple is moving away from Java and Flash to prevent back door access for hacking etc.
I run 'Click for Flash" which stops a lot of annoying pop ups but does allow flash when i want it on the odd site.

I very recently purchased an ipad and was very disappointed to discover that several educational programmes I used regularly with my younger grandkids were not available due to needing flash drive. Is there any way to overcome this problem? I know I still have the old laptop but an ipad is so convenient for young kids to use.
#68 There is no way you can expect your modern iPad to happily run all the old stuff off your laptop.I Run XP on my modern 27 iMac just so i can use one program/application, but in the case of the iPad, best have a hunt in the App Store, there is a lot of goods kids Apps, that while they may not do exactly what your old laptop did, will do a close approximation. Flash drive path would be slower i reckon so look for alternatives.
I realise that new programmes are designed constantly majorminor but the ones I referred very new ones and I paid major money for to subscribe to. I am making good use of the ipad App Store also but just hoped that there might be a way to get around the absence of the flash drive.
If you really want to run something on the iPad - then google it - chances are someone has wanted to do the same thing as you want to do and will have posted the 'work round' to achieve it.
Having, or not having a Flash drive (USB Drive) is NOT the same as having Flash Player (the software). Apple do not use Flash, and if you want that in a tablet, you'd have to get an Android based one. Not necessary to buy apps, some of the best ones are free, if you look carefully and read the info properly.
