Free Three Data SIM - ideal for our Car-Net

Post by SlimPollack » Sun Jan 27, 2019 12:30 pm

I came across this today and I thought I'd share that with you. Three Data Reward SIM with 200MB FREE every month (with no top-up required, ever) is available here:

https://www.three.co.uk/Free_SIM_MBB/Order

It seems to be ideal for our Car-Net (Traffic updates, weather, news, online POIs etc.). This SIM is effectively a 123 SIM that saves you £2 a month on data.

Calls and text 3p and 2p with data at 1p MB after you've used the first 200MB

And of course, top-up will be needed to be able to make use of either calls and/or text facilities. And a minimum top-up of £2 is required to make use of credit for International calls and texts.

But if we talk about using this for data only in our cars in something like Huawei wingle then you effectively have 200MB free every month (including roaming).

Thanks for posting . I already use a £ sim in my Hauwei wingle but therefore never use the minutes /texts so this is great.

That link seems to come up as a spam link on my PC for some reason ?, is it a referral link ?.

But both links are identical so it must be your security settings to block links in apps or websites

Thanks OP
Quite a few of us have been using that for our Car-net, but always worth a reminder.
I even get emails from three saying "You haven't started using your free data yet" :) such is the low usage of the car-net app

Am I right in thinking that if I get Security & Service with my car with it’s built in eSim then all I need to do is let the car connect to my iPhone when I’m in the car for Car-Net?
