I remember several other people on this thread have had huge bills for data they didn't use. On the bill from 3 it shows the data usage, days and times of connection, check that against the browser history on the kids computer, that should give you some idea of whether its real or not.


You can register for a My3 account at the following address:
https://my3.three.ie this will give accurate information on your data usage, remaining balance and any charges being incurred if you go over your limit.:)

is there a way to increase the 10gb limit by buying extra gb's say another 10gb for another 5 euro, the 10gb limit is starting to look awfully small as quality and file size is getting bigger and bigger

yeah the 10gb is a bit of a joke at times! Id quite happily pay an extra few quid to get a few extra GB
28.12.2008 22:20 #2317
surely they have got to change this soon, maybe if everyone complains they may up it to 20gb, in my opinion there shouldn't be a limit, or they should offer a subscription of say 30euro for unlimited


everybody start to complain


I actually thought someone here mentioned you could get extra gb bolton but they just don't advertise it.

Bast*rd! I was getting 1.5 MB yesterday and now I'm only getting 250 kbps (around 600 at it's peak and 170 at it's lowest ebb). I wanted to watch a bloody football match today and all. :mad:

Is there a mobile partner program in the connect menu?
If there isn't you will need to connect the laptop to a different internet connection (it will need to be broadband as you will need to download about 100mb.)
When you are connected to the internet go to the settings menu and select update manager when you recieve the list of available updates keep clicking the down arrow to get to the bottom of the list and check the update named "hauwei CM XXXXXXXX" (XXXXXXX indicates version number of software which changes regularly) and then click install (it will install many other updates which you may not need as well but you can not uncheck them)
Once that is done "mobile partner" will become avaiable" in the connect menu.
I hope this helps.

I'm sorry if i have misspelled some words and for the general layout of this message.

Using this on my brothers connection over Xmas, still crap in my parents area. Took over 12 hours to download Gran Turismo: Prologue over it. 2GB download.

Absolutely appalling compared to my Digiweb connection.

your phone or modem needs a SIM from 3. Otherwise even with correct settings it can't connect. Else people could use 3 for free.

A vodaphone SIM onlylets you use Vodaphone.
