Got my sim today but getting Edge on the network.
And no way it's connecting to YouTube for example.
Is this a bad sign.
Any advice as to what I can do with it.

In the APN settings, I just got Eircom wap.
Maybe this is the problem.
Do I need to import APN settings

Can I order a sim today and port my number later? Or do you have to click "keep my number" when ordering in order to port your number at a later date?

I'm going purchasing the sim card now but going to decide when to port at a later date when i receive the sim card.

Can i just purchase a new sim/new number or do i have to enter my current number and have it validated now to port in the future?

Try this
I set up 2 SIMS today for my parents and I had to update settings to get mobile data working

delete the data access point and create a new profile with these settings (everything else as default).

APN: data.mymeteor.ie
Username: my
Password: wap
Authentication Type: PAP
APN Protocol: IPv4
APN Type: default,supl

Hey I have question regarding the fix €10 for 30 days charge.

I did some reading and I think I got this info but I would still prefer a second opinion.

Let's say you are within your 30 day contract, and you travel abroad. With prepay services, what you top is what you'll get, meaning there won't be any extra charges, the service either continues or stops.

What about GoMo? If you're abroad you suddenly get distracted by thing you haven't seen in a really long time, like the sun, and forget to turn off the SIM card, could you potentially rack up some serious charges? Do they have a permission to charge your card or is the contract fixed and your SIM card will simply stop working?

You have free calls/texts abroad (in Europe) and 10Gb data usage (so use wifi where possible if you're a youtube addict)
Anything above your data usage or outside Europe usage will be charged at their normal rates which can be found on their website (tho if you are outside Europe it's always cheaper to buy a local sim)
This is par for the course for every single provider - remember this is billpay not PAYG, so you can rack up additional charges if not careful
