Hi,

I tried to buy a SIM from the Vodafone call centre today and was told that I couldn’t buy one from them - I need to go to a Vodafone high street shop and buy one. Apparently they should be able to do the DataShare there.
I have a personal and business account with Vodafone, so I looked at buying a sim through them when I got my F Pace in the summer, The vodafone SIMS were extraordinarily expensive in comparison to the Three 12 month SIM. Depends I guess, if you are looking at using the cars hotspot and burning through a lot of data then maybe it will make sense.

Consensus on the board is that for standard ICTP usage (UK & Europe) you will get through 12 months time limit before using up the 12Gb data allowance,

Hmm just crossed into France with 3SIM. Been working perfectly whilst in UK yet now No Traffic is coming up, can’t share ETA etc....have roaming enabled. Is there anything that needs activating on the SIM itself ?

Mike72, when I went abroad with a 3 Sim in my phone I had to get foreign use turned on (the default is off). If I recall I did this on line in my account settings.

Thanks Jim,

I think I've found the problem/issue. Seems that I have to go into the Navigation settings and enable roaming for various features. Once done it works fine......until I stop the car, then the next time I start up I have to do it all again. Discovered by accident when I hit the Traffic icon to display traffic on the left hand side of the screen and I got a prompt about roaming data usage etc and once I agreed to that it started working, as did the ETA sharing etc.

Not sure if there is a default roaming settings in the navigation settings that I can change (possibly linked to my profile - not yet looked) but under mobile settings roaming is set to enabled for all.

So, coming up to having to replace/renew my data sim after 12 monthts.

What is everyone doing now?

The best I can see after a quick look around is this
http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayIS ... 4000&ver=0
Basically, 12Gb over 12 months with 3 for £26.99, not dissimilar to the deals that were around last year at this time.

Any others out there?

Thanks

I ordered mine yesterday MYMemory £27 12GB over 12 Months on 3
Same as the card I bought last year worked perfectly.
Interesting to see if it gives up a year to the date it was activated.

Thanks both

June16 that looks interesting. I may well go with that unless I see something better posted.

Thanks again

Will you use more than 12G? I ask as my 12G sim last year ran out due to time not lack of data allowance.
