Cheers Lenny. Mins and texts valid in the USA too?
i havent used mine yet, but i think the mins/texts will only be to UK numbers,
what my plan to do was divert my mobile to my virgin landline, then divert my virgin landline(i have unlimited calls to uk numbers) to the uk mobile
The bands are different but phones that can use both are not as uncommon these days.
https://willmyphonework.net/ will let you know. AFAIK iPhones 6 up are good for LTE anywhere.
The bigger issue these days is 4G roaming agreements between carriers are still lagging behind. If your phone can do 4G in the States and you're not getting it in NYC it is likely because your sim carrier and roaming network carrier haven't an agreement (or you're not on a plan that supports it.)
I've said it before in this thread but local sims are the best choice for speed in the states (though roaming 3g will do most).
Heading to the NY for a few days next month then off to the Dominican Republic.
DR not listed as the 71 available countries available to roam with three.
Assuming if I get a card, it will work in US and I won't be able to connect to a network in DR?
Just to note the one listed above only lasts for 30 days, and I think as mentioned the free texts and calls are only to UK Numbers as far as I know. Pretty sure this one is listed on MyMemory too.
But it's probably the data only one (which I believe lasts 12 months so you might get a second trip out of it) that most people are interested in, it's the one which has been discussed for most of this thread and I used it myself last summer with no issues.
OP offer offer says Domestic only- we will have some Irish mobiles with us in the group- are there other similar offers that will let you phone roaming mobiles.
For use in Florida and really need the data- even 1g- for maps and stuff.
Does the 3 data sim have to be activated or anything, can it be activated here or outside the UK?
Can be activated here, basically works out of the box. I'd recommend registering it on Three.co.uk so that you can see how much balance is left on it.
Vodafone 2.99€ per day 200MB data and 1000min/SMS per day. Worked for me in Canada a few years back no issues.
Whats the best sim to get to make calls from the USA and send texts and use Data can i get a sim in Ireland or do i need to get one from the Uk sorry if this has been posted before but i just keep reading about Data Sims none that has all
A standard Vodafone SIM when opted in to Red Roaming will give you unlimited calls and texts and 200MB per day data for €3 a day, probably best option for an Irish SIM.
Did you manage to get this working? Just wondering how you purchased the add on. I see it days to dial 444 but I assume this only works in the UK.
Did you manage divert from virgin to uk mobile? I tried most networks but its only possible to divert to irish number.
Using simple mobile bring your own phone sim kit at moment in states. 99c for sim top up by 25$ gives 3Gb of data unlimited calls and texts plus I can call home to 15 different numbers landline or mobile all included.
https://shop.simplemobile.com/shop/en/simplemobile/simcards/sm-byop-mini-sim-tri-punch is the sim and just bought 25$ topup which was to include 1 Gb data but offer increased to 3 and seems to be part of t-mobile.
In the USA now. Got EUR50 't mobile unlimited 4G data and calls and texts for a month and its perfect. The whole family tethers on it, I had 7 devices connected to it yesterday
Have it in my dual sim phone so I can still make ant take business calls on my Irish number
