I have a Huawei WiFi and am using a "3" sim card in it. I think I am getting low on the present card which is the best replacement to get? I only use the Huawei while abroad downloading our local news paper and motorhome fun.

You can check your usage on the Huawei app then you will know how much is left.
I think that the 3 data only sims from mymemory are still the best price.
Looking at them just now, I think I would get 2 12 gig ones at £17 each rather than one 16 gig at £25. A bit more flexibility in starting off the second to extend the usage time and hardly any difference in price per gig.

Our recent experience with both EE and 3 are that they are limiting EU use to 12g (regardless of what it say on the packaging., ie 16gb will only get you 12gb usable) so anything over 12g is a waist of money

I ordered a 12gb one from my memory at the weekend and it was £27.99 so it looks like I've missed a good deal if it's £17 elsewhere! Ive just checked mymemory and they appear to still be £27.99

Not seen them at £17, l keep a look out and that would be very cheap, or an error ?

Do you have the Huawei Hi link app downloaded on your phone or tablet? I cannot post you a pic of how mine looks as I do not have a current sim to put in my unit. This is the app, when opened it shows usage as long as the Mifi is switched on and the device with the app is connected to the Huawei wifi.
Certainly 100mbyte is nothing these days and you need to be thinking in gigs and then terra !

I have grabbed this image from web so not mine but doesn’t yours show how much used? For example this one has used 90% of 10 GB

The £17.99 offer is for the sim card with 300 minutes + 3000 texts + 12GB data which lasts for 30 days:
https://www.mymemory.co.uk/3-payg-4g-trio-sim-pack-incl-300-mins-3000-texts-and-12gb-of-data.html

The 12Gb data card, which lasts for 12 months, is still at £27.99:

Have you ordered the wrong one?

If you need it for your MIFI as opposed to a phone you've got the wrong one ...

I've got some 12gb '3' data sim cards that I don't need, if anyone is interested they can have them for £27 each delivered, just drop me a PM.
