    From 23 March GiffGaff will change it's pay as you go charges and align them with European charges.

    Data now to be 5p per MB in UK and Europe

    Calls 15p per min in UK and Europe

    Text 5p per text in UK and Europe

    Maybe we will see other ISP's changing their charges soon.

    Not quite as good as 3's feel at home but a step in the right direction.

    We use Three but it depends on usage. There are other factors with Giffgaff like credits received for various reasons. One of our sons finds Giffgaff cheaper as a result.

    I obtained a Giffgaff SIM for a big button phone for my Mum to use but she hardly used and it they nearly cancelled the account for non-usage. Because I raised the matter on their forum I ended up getting 15 quid which I had sent to my PayPal account but could have had it added to my Giffgaff account.

    I just bought 3Gb of data on Three for £15 which works out as 0.5p per Mb.

    But you cannot use that abroad unless you are in a feel at home country.
    It won't work in Portugal for instance, where many funsters are at present.

    I got a sim only "all you can eat" tariff from 3 which works well, especially for keeping in contact when doing R2R, USA holiday and also New Zealand next year. :)

    My wife's with 3 and she got phone turned off with out warning from 3 and we had only been in France for just over 2 months and not used phone much, phone wouldn't work at all.
    I got her a Giffgaff sim and I have a spare Doug anybody wants one I can post it, you would get a free £5 credit and me too.

    I think the issue with 'validity' is a bit hit or miss whilst in Europe - but I think the real issue might come when one attempts to too up your sim.

    Tesco are apparently scrapping roaming charges...

    Unless 3 have changed significantly since I was a customer, that would involve an hour and a half telephone call getting put through to the wrong departments until you lost the will to live!

    Hi Graham

    How do you find 3 phone coverage around your/our local are, looking at the map on the web it looks poor especially Stokesley.

    The 3 deal is best for people heading to France or Spain.

    Have 3 for my large phone that covered. It's for use in ipad for hospital visits to be honest.

    The EE sim is valid for 90 days from when you start using it. My operation due next week now postponed:(

    Because it states " 2 months out of UK roaming & it will be cut off " .
    Normally you get a text . Also it wont roam again until it has been used in the UK for 12 months . That'is what they told me.
