Updated to add the following:

Page 2, additional bullet point:
  • There is no need to ‘activate’ the sims in the UK prior to travelling abroad.
Updated with the following amendments (in red below):


Page 1 - First bullet point amended:
  • The ‘Data Reward Sim’ gives 200mb of free data every month with no need for it to have credit on/be topped-up and there is no monthly charge (if you do top-up the free data is used first). The only requirements are: you must register it to activate the free data allowance, use it at least once every 6 months (180 days) to keep the sim ‘alive’ with Three. This particular sim can be obtained FOC from Three from the below link (you can get several if you’re canny!):


Page 2 - Fourth bullet point added:
  • In some countries you may need to change the APN to 3internet.
Updated 1 Feb 2017 to include the below on page 2, bullet point 3:

· The 24gb sim has a monthly cap of 12gb when used abroad.​
