You could always pop into your local phone company shop, explain your
problem and ask to have a look at an example of the dongle that you are
interested in. You can then make a note of the manufacturer and part
number that is printed on the label on the back of the device. Google is
then your friend. Shop staff are usually helpful if they think they are
going to get a sale in the future.
