Will have to fork out for another sim now it seems as I've tried all I can think of.
Am in the states at the min roaming on the 3uk sim, its not roaming on tmobile, I'm roaming on at&t. Have attached the Apn settings from my phone for reference

Thanks a million. Have it working now so hopefully the coverage remains okay. In Los Angeles currently.

Other people on here seemed to be suggesting that you could use it as a personal hotspot in a mobile phone device in the USA?
Currently in Florida using the 3sim in my old samsung s6 phone.
works grand on phone has 4G and all but like that it wont work as a hotspot to other devices .
it will connect to them it says connected but you may have no internet connection with a exclamation symbol on wifi symbol. tryed on other phones and a tablet.
i also tryed sharing it through bluetooth no luck either.

Yeah If they are available in store though it would be much easier for me personally to just do that

I experienced the same. It connects to the other phones by hotspot connection. But the other phones get no internet.

I will let you know how I get on with the Huawei personal hotspot I expect to arrive soon. Unfortunately I bought the wrong one from amazon. I bought the 3g instead of the more expensive 4G one. So it might be slow. But the point is if it works as a hotspot, then I will return it to amazon and buy the 4G one.

Just to report back an unlocked WiFi mobile hotspot will work with the sim and allow you to tether multiple phones and tablets to the mobile hotspot. As mentioned earlier go for a 4G device as opposed to a 3g. My 3g device was slow but worked. Amazon are selling the 3g Huawei device for £25 and the 4G for £45

Yes and confirmed with 3 UK that no addon required to enable usage in a mifi/mobile hotspot as their GoRoam 12GB sim is a broadband sim as opposed to a phone sim.
