Thats ok if you want to make a call out, but how can you call in if the
phone is suspended - leaving it running will probably give a battery
life of about 4 hours or so if not less.  There is also the problem of
how to attach the dongle - would look kinda weird with one of those
silver usb cables hanging out, not to say connector damage as it gets
twisted as you put it in a pocket or bag.  The USB dongle is a great
idea for temporary/emergency use, but I dont see it as practical as day
to day phone - wish it was tho as it would solve the lack of 3G issues.
