I have no issue with the 2degrees data stick as it works fine in my daughters windows laptop.
Before I bought one for my Android I tried my daughters . When I plugged it in it closed down completely.
Restarts with or without the data stick only get to the android loading stage. I have tried the factory reset with no sucess.
Has anybody had similar problems and can help me get going again.

USB Modems will probably not work that device. The power used to power the USB will shut down the Android system.
Does it have a SIM capability? You may be able to Tether a phone or use it as a Wi-Fi Hotspot.
