    Anyone know anything about this, apart from what it says on the site, looks good to me but poor site , no details but seems to be a data sim that works worldwide at the same price from about a fiver a gig:thumb:

    I would want to know what provider they use.. For me, abroad, Vodafone is a big hit.. Womans fone is never without signal, but the UK ? I know everyone has their own 'bestest mate' supplier, but where ever we go in the UK it seems to be my T Mobile that works and her Vodafone struggling

    I have looked into it a bit more now, you have to click on terms and conditions on the page I have put up and you can get further into it , it seems amazing (to good to be true:Doh:) £4.95.a month for a gig uk plus 100mg in Europe free and loads more if you pay more if you sign for three months you get treble amount per month goes down to about a penny a gig:thumb:

    If you click their Terms and Conditions link it takes you to their main site, which is much better and gives lots more info. Looks like they use 3 in the UK

    Dunno about to good and all that.. I got me an ovivo sim for the ipad about 6 months ago..
    Single payment of £15.00 And that was it.. Allowance is low but there is no repeat fee, no further payment at all providing you stay within the allowance.. As I use it for the occasional google and email the allowance for me whist travelling is just fine !!

    Out of curiosity what was the allowance please? Also can you use it abroad and at what cost please. I understand that Ovivo use ads to fund their service - are they very intrusive?

    Seems better than ever, what's the catch with this one, why is it free, can't see anything about Europe , does it work there, is it free there, is it a good connection?

    Note you have to put up with their adverts. I haven't used their service, so have no idea how many / often, or how intrusive the adverts are.

    No idea.. but I doubt it.. If we are travelling a lot from country to country we make use of Womans Vodafone account as it is not too bad at all.. If in a country for any length of time grab a cheapy sim in that country

    Absolutely free after the first payment is 1 gig per month
    But going over that is not exactly fiscally crippling :Wink:

    As mentioned, you do get an advert pop up every now and then but the data it uses for them is not counted in to your allowance and to be honest an advert every now and then for a virtually free internet service is a small price to pay :thumb:

    Tyne & Wear, sometimes..

    Their European allowance is 100 mb free / per month. After that 15p per Mb...

    Our 3G Broadband SIM only plans are cheaper than those on the high street, with the added benefit of coverage across 39 other countries. Plus, when you travel to these countries you will receive 100MB FREE, if you exceed this, the charge will only be 15p/MB.

    For my purposes when travelling abroad whether for work or play it would be prohibitively expensive.....

    Ovivo SIM

    My questions (and callumwa's) were about the Ovivo SIM referred to by Jaws, not the mobi-data SIM you have quoted.

    Can I ask anybody who has an Ovivo Sim how intrusive the adverts are please. At the moment I am thinking of getting one and putting it in a mifi and I wonder how that has worked out for others.

    I would say I got an advert about once every 20 or 30 pages or so

    Might sound a lot but in reality it is far from being intrusive :Smile:

    Now that ovivo has finished what are you all on now, has anyone tried this mobi-data thing, I am still looking as we are off to France next month, went out for a week last week and soon got rid of my O2 allowance so thought as I have a spare windows phone I might get one of these mobi- data things to just use in that, anyone tried one?:Wink:

    I have been touring in France and Spain since 14 March, so did not know that Ovivo had gone until you said. I was using their SIM in my old phone so that it could act as a wifi hotspot when we were out and about in the UK. No good now!! I will probably continue with my giffgaff SIM and buy a goodybag now and again instead.

    At the moment I am using the EurpaSIM card in Europe for the same thing. E3 per day, but only only get charged on the days you use it, For that you get 500Mb data and 50 minutes per day. Good if you want occassional internet and the site/aire does not have wifi.

    I am afraid I have not heard of mobi-data so can't comment on it.

    Have a look on Europasim's own website, they have good FAQ section which deals with setting it all up. Once I followed their instructions I had no problem. But you may have problems it seems if you are using higher levels of Android (they will explain) because you can't manually set the APMs to what is needed to get the special rate.
