Please note that if you use this SIM card for data in the EU you only get 12GB rather than the 24GB advertised. This is because of Three’s ‘fair use’ policy which is capped at 12GB only. A bit like buying a bottle of wine but only being allowed to drink half of it!
Bought from a seller. What a palaver, I buy these SIMS regularly and I have worked in mobile telecoms for over 20 years. Their SIMs aren't activated/pre-provisioned ready to use. Nowhere did they state in the sales info that you have to request activation via a webpage. Even worse, you have to set it up via a mobile device. The latter for me was the final straw as the SIM is for a CAR (so how do I set it up then whilst its in a CAR!!). Laughable - a basic requirement missed. Thanks for wasting my time.
Purchased this for internet access abroad when my usual internet access through SFR WiFi FON disappeared due to signal reduction. Using with a Huawei e5775 MiFi box. Using in France, the card appears to be restricting access through F SFR which is my strongest carrier signal locally, but allowing access through Orange F and F-Bouygues Telecom. Also, when using abroad Three has a 13Gb per month limit fair usage policy, after which, use of the remaining data on the card is restricted until the beginning of the next month; also topping up with 30 days of data does not circumvent this problem since this new top up data will only activate once the remaining preloaded data has been used (if using abroad, only top up with 12Gb to avoid hitting the 13Gb limit). Three's online helpline advised me to put 'cash' on the card, but my reading of the fair use policy is that this would hit the same problem and that the cash would be last in line of priority for being used; also at 1p per Mb, it works out as expensive data at £10.24 per Gb. Recommend purchasing several of these if travelling abroad for any length of time and using a lot of data and swopping out for another card when hit data limit.
Bought this in the uk. Worked straight out of the pack. Trio sim just pick what size you need as sim presses out to fit your device. This does work in a mobile phone as using it in one myself so don’t worry about pack not mentioning mobile phone use. Put it in phone got text updates then works. If you’re looking for a data only sim this will fit the bill for you. Would recommend
Used this in a Huawei 3g mifi device and it worked straight out of the packet with no registering of the product. Go to three and enter the phone no of sim and add password and you can view remaining data online. Set account up and its valid for 12 months.
fantastic value.ideal for my usage,no house internet dongle only.used to top up 3 dongle every 30 days but now have 24gb for 24 months,no rush to use,lost some data allowance many times before due to unused before 30 day limit,unlike one review I read,i can check data usage by going into 3 automatic on dongle.will certainly buy again and again,cheaper for me than land line charges and internet charges plus vat,for the amount I use the internet.
I bought this to use on an unlocked phone in California when travelling abroad, and had no problems with it at all. You have to activate it at home before you travel, but this only took a few minutes and switched over straight away when I arrived at my destination. I always feel safer knowing I have a way to contact home if I need it, and this certainly helped.
