Hi

From 1st April 2015 Three will be including Spain in its Feel At Home package meaning you can use your data/calls/text allowances in Spain - handy for many of us and just in time for Summer.

This also includes the Canary Islands.

Does that include Spanish islands such as the Canaries?

Same networks. So I would guess so.

Adding Spain to the list is a massive game changer.

scorchio .... Def staying with three now !!

Hmm, April 1st...... hope it's not an April Fool!

Can't add enough heat. I'm going on holiday to Spain on the 6th so it's perfect.

Excellent.

Killer addition.

What's with the pic of Stevie G

Most people go to Spain for their holidays so this offer is very HOT

Do you think it might include Tenerife?

Tenerife and the canaries have a Spanish dialling code (0034) so they must be included.

Great news, thanks

happy days!!

I cant believe three are the only network with this. So useful. But when I was in Paris last July it never worked... it didnt find anything, it might be because I put a spending cap on my account (i.e. blocked trying to call 0800 numbers etc, blocks trying to connect to data abroad) but a three representative said this wouldnt affect anything, and instead said maybe it wasnt available in France back in July 2014.

Thing is, it was... so nothing really makes sense. Im going to California in March/April and I hope to god it works there for me... I have a new contract now, the £15 pm 200min/AYCE/AYCE/4GB Hotspot. Hopefully it'll be different.

Has anyone used this in the USA? what kind of speeds do you get average/worst/best, and can you use your 4GB Hotspot?

Dunno about the hot spot but it definitely worked in New York when I was there. I can't imagine California not working.

I used this is vegas last week, not sure what sort of speeds i was getting as it was always jumping between wifi in the casinos and then my normal internet?

it worked just as good as here in all fairness - and hey its free lol

I used this during my study abroad in the US (North Carolina). Had great reception and data connection. I used it for tethering on a few occasions and it worked like a charm. Unfortunately after around the third month I could never connect to the internet (or the connection was very patchy at best). Phone calls works still worked though.

Cannot tell you how convenient it was. Besides the minor hiccup with data, it was absolutely amazing that I could use my phone to call home as if I was still in the UK. Also saved me the incredibly expensive US mobile tariffs

You're restricted to 3G and you can't use tethering; can always work around it by using a VPN, but the speeds won't be ideal. Depending on the location you're going to, you might want to manually choose which network you roam onto; at&t and t-mobile vary wildly in their coverage.

Used them in New York, worked great. Going Bali in March via Hong Kong. Can't believe how useful it is.

Thanks for the responses re: feel at home in USA, it is reassuring.

Any idea why I couldn't get it to work in Paris last July (2014)? Possible contributing factors;

Samsung Galaxy SIII - 3G model
Three plan with 300min/AYCE/AYCE/no tethering (£26 a month, with the phone 24 month contract)
I put on a cap preventing any additional costs on top of £26


So, I'm not sure if that cap would have conflicted. I called Three this October to make some enquiries and they explained that the cap can be enabled and you can still use mobile data, and they went on to say "Feel at home was probably not available in France at that time" - which I'm quite sure is not true.

Therefore, I'm left pretty confused about all of this! Only explanation seems to be that the advisor I spoke with gave misinformation regarding the cap and Feel at home go live dates

esskay92 has explained that it worked for them with Tethering. I know some Three contracts will not allow for Tethering but my existing one allows for 4GB. Do you know if it's stipulated in writing anywhere online to get to the bottom of this?

Useful to know. I have a 3 PAYG SIM for use in the USA and having data for Google maps etc is very useful.
Just wish they'd include Canada as well!

About time!!

When I phoned to activate international roaming, they removed the cap which I put back on when I returned to the UK.

Customers cannot use their smartphone as a modem to connect other devices … Customers cannot use their smartphone as a modem to connect other devices such as laptops and tablets - also known as “tethering”, in the destinations listed above.



Here's their terms and conditions. I do remember using tethering briefly while I was in the US last month, but I didn't test it properly due to having wifi in my hotel room. I just wouldn't count on it being available when needed due to their stated terms and conditions, but unless someone knows what system they're using for detection of tethering, it's hard to be sure

Used it in florida for 3 weeks ladt year, saved me a fortune.

stain in July this year

yippppeeee, great find, thanks op

I got a Three Sim card specifically for this as I travel a lot. Very impressed, especially with some of the ridiculous fees you would have to pay in these countries. Heat added.

Gonna get hot!

Thanks for the info.

I was in California for 8 weeks and it worked perfect. I used around 5gb while I was there. No idea what the speeds were but good enough for me
