Has anyone tried this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Three-12GB-P...3D282418275275
Seller claims it can be used in the US. Wondering which network (Tmo or AT&T) and is it exclusively HSPA+? Anyone wants to take a plunge and try and report back?
Perhaps the same set of countries as the FreedomPop Global SIM, which is a Three UK SIM.
This is an intriguing offer, but in looking at the Three (U.K.) web site, I note that:
"Feel At Home is designed for UK residents who are on holiday or business trips abroad. It is not designed for extended periods abroad–see ‘usage restrictions’ in our support pages via the link below for details."
"Feel At Home is intended for our UK customers who are visiting one of the Feel At Home destinations for short
periods, like holidays or business trips. It isn’t designed for people who live abroad or stay for extended periods.
If you roam exclusively in a Feel At Home destination for any 2 complete months in a rolling 12-month period,
we may suspend international roaming on your account, meaning you will no longer be able to use your device
abroad. Of course, we will let you know in advance if this is likely to happen. If you spend a full month abroad but
some of that time is spent in a destination that isn’t included in Feel At Home, the restriction won’t apply."
Recharges to a SIM must be made with a credit card registered in the U.K.
Still, this could be useful for a one- or two-month trip.
However, it's not clear to me how I would use such a SIM in a wifi hotspot. I have MF61s and ZTE915s that I have used on T-Mobile and an Orange (France) dongle, but don't know if these would work with a Three SIM and properly handle account authorization.
Ebay will usually find in favor of the buyer. If there's any issues, the seller will almost always lose. Ebay is a necessary evil.
But by time you have a problem, it might be too long after the eBay sale for eBay to get involved, per its terms.
Paypal is 180 days.
I've used a regular payasyougo sim in the USA. They cut you offer if you have used it for 30 days continuous use or if they suspect you are not a uk tourist in the USA. The USA roaming is meant for UK residents on trips here.
At what point do they terminate your service if you used it only in the US?
I've used '3' sims quite abit while travelling, I think they know these Sim's are full on traveller sims. As they are usually priced higher than native sims bought in the UK.. They work well.. I don't think you would have to follow the same rules as a Native purchaser with recurring charges..
They are priced higher because they are resellers trying to make money. The sims are meant for UK residents and chances are they will cut you off at some point. If you use them on and off you are probably fine.
Listing says these are data only. Freedompop is a much better deal then.
