    That's quite interesting. It makes Carphone Warehouse's much publicised fall out with 3 look a little bit suspect.

    The deal looks pretty good. The only thing to be a bit wary of is how much the parent network will throttle the data and how it's prioritised but that's the same with all of the virtual networks.

    Thanks for that, sounds a good deal with 4gb. I hope its the same 3 feel at home deal.
    I'll ask 3 tomorrow and see if they will match it

    You won't get feel at home. It isn't a 3 sim card, just a client network that piggy backs the main network.

    Why a dislike button? There's nothing wrong with the deal if you want to use it in the UK .... not many where you can get the no of mins/texts/data for £10 a month!

    That was my thought too as it's not from '3' themselves but still a good sim deal nonetheless.

    Depends which deal you go for ID Sim have two ranges of prices, the dearer one with higher data limits includes feel free at home. I just have the basic one @£5 /month give 250min, 5000 text, & 500mb data.

    Not so good when you spend a good time abroad and can have free calls. 4gb is not necessary at home and I get 600 minutes for my £10

    So it doesn't suit you, but others who need a higher gb limit might be more interested.

    Depends on how you use it. We only use mobile data in a Mifi unit when in the van, at the moment I am waiting for my free FreedomPop sim which will give me 200mb a month free no charge, this is generally enough for a weekend only though, if it works then hopefully it will be all I need when used with Wifi access. Before this I used to buy the 6gb for 3 months EE cards off Amazon or ebay for about 14 pounds, only started their activation when I needed the data and no Wifi available.

    I also used to have a 3 card that was 50p a day for Internet access (150mb) but 3 changed policy so it only works in phones and not Mifi units so no use anymore, they do have a sim that lasts 12 months for 12Gb costs 56 pounds at the moment.

    When my 12 month contract comes to an end in March/April and if the uSwitch offer is still around I might well change as the 500 mins, 5000 texts, 4gb at 10 pounds for 30 days looks very good value. the 30 day commitment is great as you can change if something more suitable comes along.

    It depends where you want to use it. If you want to use it in Europe then unfortunately a 3 feel at home one is best the way to go. I say unfortunately because I absolutely despise them as a company.

    If you only want to use it in the UK then the one in Mel's OP is going to be as good as anything at the moment.

    I've got one and they offered me another one last week forgot about it until it was too late. They use the 3 network and allow tethering and feel free at home, if you pay £1.49 per month you can roll over the data up to 20gb.
    Voice quality is crap they use voip over the data link or wifi. Also have an ID Sim they don't allow tethering, gets confusing on my phone as they both come up as 3UK.

    Just cancelled my contract brought a phone (Cubot x15 dual sim job with excellant screen) currently using ID Sim £5 monthly contract with Freedome Pop sim as back up, save £72 over 2 years compared to my £13 contract with a vastly inferiour phone, so I have a much better phone and a bit of money in the bank.
