Free Three sim with 500mb of data to use abroad

Found 13th Apr 2015
If you're planning on using your mobile abroad, you can get a free pay-as-you-go Sim card from mobile network Three with an allowance of 500MB of data pre-loaded (no calls or texts), which you can use to get online in the UK and 18 destinations - including the USA, Australia and France and now Spain

The free 500MB allowance can be used until Mon 31 Aug or for 30 days after you activate your Sim (whichever's first), so wait until just before you go away to activate it.

Not sure how many they have to give away.

This offer was last active a month or so ago and they went pretty quick!

The link then expired, but is now active again.

EDIT: For some reason the link is failing if via HKUD - it is three.co.uk/Sup…der

Sorry - the link is failing - have manually added it in the opening post

Many thanks OP. I couldn't find it anywhere until you posted the link, thought I'd missed it.
Was thinking of ordering a sim for holidays as I need use of a satnav and didn't really want to take tomtom,charger,mount etc. Much appreciated, I will move to three again once my t-mobile contract is up anyway as they've saved me a fortune with wife and kids on PAYG 3,2,1.

ordered thanks OP .

Get service - Check how long they need to be activated before use... I thought I read a while ago there was a couple of weeks needed before they work abroad, happy to be wrong though

PAYG sims can be used abroad as soon as they're activated, with no waiting period.

They have to be activated in the UK though, but you can do that at the airport, ferry terminal, etc before your departure. Contract sims need to be activated for a month first before use abroad.

This is a pay as you go sim, so it can be activated just before you leave.

Actually they can be activated abroad. I have done this with 2 sims in the USA.

However I would not take the risk.

I only had to do it as I was already abroad and would not return to the UK before requiring them.

Could I just get it and use it here? ;p

Thanks OP ordered

Thank you

500mb is enough for?

500mb for free is better than nothing, you can also buy a Feel At Home add on for extra data, phone calls and texts.

Ordered, cheers

Can I use it in Republic of Ireland? Also is there a limit on how many sims you can have a household?

You can get on to viber/whatsapp/google chat and say this: "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."

Putting your phone down and enjoying your trip away?

Missed the first batch, so thanks a lot!

Hope they're going to add Germany at some point, would make my life so much easier
Thanks for posting

Would like this with, say 100 mins of call too.

You can use this in UK, right?

Thanks

Yes of course

heat added (_;)

Bah! Still no Greece.

Can I use this Sim for my trip to China ? Will it work?

Thanks OP!

Already on Three but having extra phone numbers don't hurt! Heat added. Thanks OP!

Great deal. I won't be ordering as I have no need for it, but fantastic for those who will find it useful.

could not send request. No send button!!


Very useful - thanks!

Ordered. Heat.

Anybody any idea IF it will work in the island of Majorca as I presume it will being a spanish island BUT don't want to get there and it not.
Was looking at maybe adding the £15 Add-on which gives UNLIMITED data, 300 minutes and 3000 texts, which in my opinion is a bargain and much easier than having to get change for the local phonebox
You could also go for the £10 Add-on which gives 500mb data, 100 minutes, 3000 texts

Ordered three of them!
Thanks!

I asked Three last month as I'm going there in a few weeks, FeelAtHome DOES cover the Balearic islands as well as mainland Spain so Mallorca etc. are included.

China is not a Feel At Home country, so you'd pay full roaming rate there. Don't know how much it is though. Hong Kong is on the list but not China, sorry.

Feel At Home works in mainland Spain and all the Spanish islands, so you're covered.

However, Feel At Home data use is limited to 25GB every 30 days, so not unlimited. It is only 3G, not 4G, and tethering is not allowed abroad.

it's 3 order maximum per household, just tried to order some in the cats name and it didn't work :P
