    Hi,
    For those who may have missed this on the thread on 'Chat', Portugal goes into the 'Feel at Home' programme of countries that you can use a 3 Mobile Sim card from September 2016.

    Very handy and just in time for the winter season.

    I spent a fortune last winter on my mobile using my Manx telecom sim. Is this something I could use to keep my costs down?

    If you can buy a Three PAYG sim card it should. The 12Gb one seems the best value but you may need two or more for the entire winter because of the two month use limitation.

    3Mobile "Feel at Home" Sim 12Gb Lasts 12mths, Can be used for 2 mths abroad, costs less than £24.
    Seems a bargain to me

    We used 100% of our Three SIM cards abroad
    Not sure that the 'two month' rule applies to them

    Am off across Europe on Friday and will be gone for a couple of months, so it would be a great advantage if I knew when the new package starts. I would imagine its not going to start until the kids are back at school. That would make sense to 3 and save them a shed load of money.

    The man (boy) in the 3 Shop in Plymuff (2 f's) didn't know when in September when I asked a couple of mins. ago but he said, after asking colleagues that it would be "The beginning of September"

    So there you have it. I don't know!!!
