Free 200M per month data sim

Post by June16 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:24 pm

Over on the DS forum there’s a link to. Free 200 M per month Sim, it’s not much data but enough to run traffic etc.

Though some folks on here might want one too.

I use 181 Mb per month on average, and that includes my high-usage first month as I tried everything out, so thanks for flagging this up.

MY19 owners get 500M free data SIM. Don't try topping this up though, they want your first born for 1 MB of data!

Hi Keith, how do you find out how much data you use per month/year.

Our current SIM is from O2 and you can track usage from your online account, but the car also tracks it.

From memory (the car is with the dealer at the moment) you go into Settings and Connectivity and it shows usage and total data capacity of the SIM card. Usage resets each month although you can select the day of the month it does so, which means you have to remember to check it the day before. I then track the figures on a spreadsheet.

just received my free sim, but it is a pain to activate because it has to be registered, they have to be fitted in a phone and 3 send you a link to register. I gave up and fitted a 24 month 24g.

Got one of these SIMs from 3 th other week and have had no joy in registering it from the car - keeps saying there's a problem with the certificate of the website.

I'm going to give it one last shot from an old phone (one that takes the same SIM size as the car) but failing that, is there not a way I can have all the data needed to be sucked down from my mobile phone, which is paired to the car?

What exactly does the SIM data connection give you? Is if traffic (mine keeps saying no traffic data available), or maps or what? I've successfully updated the map data last week but that was when the car was linked to the home wifi.

Coming from 20 years of Audi ownership, I am a little frustrated by the ICTP interface, it's great in certain aspects, but sucks in others (no voice tags for navigation for instance!!).

Any general pointers on it all gratefully received.

You should have to register the sim , you just put it in and it detects it’s from 3.
I’ve nepver had to register a sim yet.

You need to follow the instructions for putting in the sim and setting up live services

Details are here

Have you tried
“Store navigation voicetag “

Worth a try , it may just work?

To add a voicetag:

Briefly press the voice button to start a voice session.
Wait for the tone to sound and say store phone voicetag, store radio voicetag, or store TV voicetag.
For radio and television, the user must be listening to the station or channel they wish to create a voicetag for.

Thanks for the advice on SIM install and voice-tags. I've done as per the SIM instructions, but still have to register it.

As to voice tags, I'll look into it further - does seem odd that there's no basic pre-stored tags for navigation features though, but plenty for music and telephone functions.
