    Three (3) mobile on Feel at Home service starts today in Spain. Who's going to report on its coverage first? Not me I have Spanish contract mobile internet, but we like to know how things are moving forward.

    I'll tell be able to tell you in 3 weeks. :)
    My main worry is we will be near the Portuguese border for a while and I need to be sure it won't log onto a Portuguese provider as that would be very expensive.

    I'm at Ribemar ACSI site near Alcossebre. I'm on PAYG, have turned on roaming and converted to a £15 package just a while ago. I'm on Movistar network, no message from '3' to tell me I'm on Feel at Home or anything, will leave it on today and see what my balance is tomorrow.

    The connection etc is pretty good, far better than the site WIFI. Fingers crossed, it's OK and not costing an arm and a leg! Dave

    Don't worry, two posts gives a 3D image if you turn your head on its side.

    Davidandginnys post refers to Movistar, there are other providers in Spain, Orange and Vodafone to name just two, I await confirmation who has partnered with 3 in Spain. The first Funsters to confirm gets a free welcome drink when turning up at camperstopsierraespuna. Please bring proof to obtain this one off offer.

    We plan to stop at Sierra Espuna but it probably won't be until May or early June. I suspect your prize will have been claimed by then!

    Have just spoken to my mechanic in the UK on my 3 phone via Yoigo, and I can confirm that it works free of any roaming charges to the UK.

    Thanks Snowbird, you are our prizewinner, just arrive at the Camperstop between now and 2/04/2015 together with your mechanic to claim your prize. Thanks to all who entered but we are sorry there can only be one winner this time.

    I am on three and got Movistar 95% of the time in Spain between January and March. Service was good, though I hardly used it because feel at home hadn't started.

    Erm, I think I will pass on your kind offer for a couple of reasons. The first being I have no idea where camperstop is and the second, no one has ever bought me a drink in my life. Am not about to change that now.

    We are at La Linea and have mobile internet with 3 in the UK. Just tried to log on in the van via Yoigo and zilch, so currently in the local football club bar using their free wifi. Will try again later.

    Three say you just need to connect to a local network not a particular one in any of the Feel at Home countries.

    This has been discussed before I think but can it be topped up when you are outside UK? There is a problem with cards I believe being authenticated. Secondedly, how long do top ups last? Is it just a month? I've looked on the Three website but couldn't find anything definite.
    I am going away for two months so working out how to use it for that period is important.

    The add ons last for 30 days but represent excellent value. I managed to top up my account using my registered card wi

    That makes sense. If you have a card registered with them any authentication should happen within the UK. I just need to register a card - tried today and it refuses to take my post code. Apparently I live near St Austell according to Three. Wrong County, but close!

    I've got the 3GB starter pack, "valid for three months" except top ups are only valid one month it seems. I have also read on the Three website itself that topping up when outside the UK is problematic. Probably deliberate as they don't want it used by ex-pats!
    But good to hear from d and g that they have topped up from places where the sun shines, so to speak.
