    It looks like the same thing as I have in my iPad except it cost about £50 in store at Christmas.

    I am using it in Spain at he moment, not mega fast but OK.

    edit

    I think I have done almost as well though, I either paid £30 for 30Gb or £20 for 20 Gb on a monthly contract, but you can cancel on day 1, so a 30 day sim card with at least 20Gb of data, will make sure I use every last noodle of data allowance

    When you got your sim did you have a choice of when it started (ie was active) or was it activated on the date you bought it?

    If Martins was the same as ours, you apparently have 30 days from date of purchase to start using it or it starts counting down on its own

    But based on how quickly and often their prices change, these rules might vary as well (y)

    The ones that I normally get (3) start when you first go online .

    I had a 3gb purchased last August ,activated in Jan and with data usage will run out this w/e

    Hi Mel

    Sorry I don't know the answer to that as I wanted it to work straight away so the guy in he store put it in the iPad and it worked when Inwalked out the door.

    I might well be wrong but the way I read it is that it isn't valid for Feel at Home destinations without a further purchase?

    No use to me whatsoever if it can only be used in the UK but if it works it Europe it looks a good deal.

    That's not how I read it. On the 'Plan details' page it says......

    "Use your allowances to call and text home and use data in 18 destinations worldwide. Terms apply. Search three.co.uk for 'feel at home'."

    If you click on it as if you're going to buy, it only shows a standard sim, if you do the same for the '3 month' sim you get a choice of standard, micro and nano, but the 1gb 30 day one only offers the nano sim ... so on the face of it you can't ... so might be worth contacting them to ask!

    I am guessing it is the like the one I purchased in the shop, full size but you can break it down so it covers all options.

    From memory you specify the size when you order.
    But if it's only a nano you can get adaptors.

    I've had my 12Gb 3 data card for eight months now and bags of life left in it.. Count down starts from first activation/connection. Used it in France (but not Belgium) in November. I was never without access through out the trip. Very pleased and this offer looks good enough to get a couple more for this year. So thanks to the OP(y)

    I've ordered one as well so we can use it when abroad in May/June, we may also use it at our static after that if there's any data left in it, but the signal isn't great there now, so we tend to use EE.

    '3' has always been one of the most expensive providers for PAYG data sims, so at the price it's a great deal! (y)
