Roaming doesn't work for UK SIMs used in the UK, the networks don't allow it. If they did, when you were in the sticks where say there was only O2 coverage and you had a Voda SIM it would allow you to connect for any type of call and data not just to use the emergency number. For this reason field engineers with some companies have phones that take 2 SIMs and if their 'native' SIM doesn't work they have an Isle of Man SIM fitted in the second slot which will then roam onto any of the UK networks that are available at the location.
Thanks Jim

Hi, I'm not sure if this has already been mentioned as this is quite a long thread but you need to be a bit careful using the sim as a WiFi hotspot if you have people sitting in the car with ipads, phones etc. with auto updates enabled. As far as any device is concerned this is a regular WiFi hotspot so it will go ahead and just download stuff that it would not normally do when the device knows it is on cellular.

So in an extreme case I could get in the car with my wife and kids on the way to holiday, a new update turns up for "Full Throttle Remastered" (3.9GB) and each of our devices will begin to download. That's 12GB used up before we arrive at Fleet Services :D

Just something to bear in mind as I have been caught out by this using MiFi devices abroad before. If you are going to use a hotspot like this ensure that auto updates are off on any connected devices.

Excellent point Sid. Haven't seen that mentioned before so well spotted.

PS. I really hope your surname is Boggle. Fantastic!

Unfortunately Boggle is not my real name. I just model myself on Sid James' character in "Carry on Camping" :D

A question on activating the 3 sim card.
Can this be done in car? or does it have to be done beforehand in a phone?

Thanks

Just stick it in the sim slot. From memory I thìnk all you have to do then is switch on the mobile data toggle in the connectivity menu in ICTP. There may have been an additional action in that menu, but it was all in the car. No preregistration required.

You only need to put it in a phone if you want to register online to access your account and see how much data you have left (needs to send u texts to activate your acct). If you're not bothered about that, then plug and play!!!

If you don't do that, how do you know when you're running out of data?!

You don't, but based on the average usage your 12 mths will run out before your data!

The car tells you your total useage so far so with some basic maths you can work out how long you have left :-)
