Re: Help! How can I use my micro USB without...
I'm afraid I can't really answer your first question, but as to this one, it is quite simple, they don't. You are free to do whatever you want with your Nexus 7 including using it as a frisbee.

And why don't you want to root your device anyway? You can't complain about limits and then say you don't want root, it doesn't make sense.
I suspect you'll need a custom ROM if you want to use a 3G dongle, I tried connecting my 3G dongle using a OTG cable (albeit without a SIM card in it because I didn't want to take the card out of my phone), the kernel recognised it, but I didn't get any options to use it (though this may be because there was no SIM card in it, but I doubt it).
