Step 1. Land at your destination (must be one of 71 countries listed)

Step 2. Insert SIM card

Step 3. Turn on ‘Data Roaming’ in your mobile/network settings.

Step 4. Restart your device

You should connect within 5 minutes. You will receive a welcome text when you are connected.

 

What if I need help?

 

These SIMs have a high success rate with connecting immediately. However, there is always the possibility of technical issues.

If you land and you are having issues getting connected to the internet. We will have to troubleshoot to find the issue.


Step 1. Ensure you have followed all activation steps and restarted your mobile device. It can sometimes take up to 2 hours to activate on rare occasions.

Step 2. *You will need to find an internet connection. Most international airports and hotels have free wifi available.

Step 3. Reach out to SimsDirect for help.

Message us on Facebook Messenger (recommended) with the following information:

  • Your phone model (ie. iPhone 8, Samsung s9)
  • A photo of the back of the SIM numbers on the back of the SIM cutout
  • A screenshot of your ‘mobile/network settings’
  • Details about your issue

* You can also email us at hello@simsdirect.com.au

* We may be asleep in Australia, we are active on Messenger from 7 AM - 9 PM AEST.

Alternatively

You can go to www.support/threeUk and speak to a live chat agent to resolve your issue (24/7).

 

 

How do I make international calls?

 

This SIM does not come with international calls. Only calls to UK & European numbers are included in the 3000 minutes/texts. However, you can receive international calls for free.

We highly recommend using data applications as a smart alternative. This may be confusing at first but is definitely the most cost-effective way to travel connected as you are avoiding expensive international call rates.

If you are wanting to call internationally:

We recommend using Skype. You can purchase credit and use it to make international calls to any number in the world at very affordable rates that are much cheaper than international call rates. $10 will get you roughly 250 minutes worth of international calls. 

It's just like using your mobile but it uses internet data to make the call. Very handy! Works for landlines and mobile numbers.

If you are wanting to call and message mobile numbers internationally for free.

We recommend using any of the following free apps.

Whatsapp

Facebook Messenger

Google Hangouts

Viber

Skype

All of these apps are handy to use while travelling. However, you will need to have your friends and family saved as contacts. It is good to add contacts on these apps before you fly.

If you wish to have standard international calls:

You can purchase additional credit with ding.com and use the additional credit for international calls. * This is not an efficient way of calling internationally. As international calls will cost you on average 1.40 pound/minute.

This is only advised if you wish to have an emergency backup to call friends/family from home. 

 

How do I check my balance?

 

You may check your balance by going to your 'My3' account and using your mobile number to check your data, calls and text usage.

 Step 1. Go to www.three.co.uk/My3Account/Register?intid=my3_login_register If you have not registered

Step 2. Enter your Three Uk mobile number and you will receive a text shortly afterwards with a password to log in.

Step 3. Log in to your 'My3' account

Step 4. Find ‘Check Account Balance’

 

How do I top-up and recharge?

 

This SIM is not rechargeable as it is preloaded with a bundle that expires after 30 days.

If you need more data or a longer duration you will need to purchase multiple SIM cards and swap them out as you go.

If you need more than 1 SIM you can take advantage of our 'Multi-pack' discount. The more SIMs you need the more you save!

The SIMs are disposable and don't hold any personal information on them.

Please note that you will have a new UK number for every new SIM you use.

 

 

How do I find my mobile number?

 

The phone number provided is a UK number (+44). It is printed on the back of the SIM card so you can give to anyone you need before you fly.

You can find your mobile number when the SIM is inserted by going to your contacts and looking up the top of your contacts for ‘My Number’.

 

Is 12GB enough data for me?

Travel sim

Overall the sim was fantastic. It worked everywhere that I went in Europe. France, Belgium, Netherlands Italy and Spain. We spent 4 nights in Bangkok on the way home but sadly it doesn't work there.

Best value in town

We bought 3 SIMdirect Europe SIM cards and we have no problem whatsoever in activating or using them in Europe. The activation process is very simple . Ample instructions on the pack . Just insert the SIMdirect SIM card in my iPhone and voila ! It received sms messages asking me to wait whilst activating. Depending on the location where the SIM card being activated, it could take about 20 minutes . If it is still busy activating after 30 minutes , just take the SIM card out again from the phone slot and insert it again . But for my 3 SIM cards , they worked for me without any issues . I bought 3 SIM cards , each for a member of my family when we were on a driving tour in Provence south of France . The SIM card does have any signal reception when our cruise ship was at seas but when it docked at the pier , the SIM card reception was great . I would not hesitate to buy another Europe SIM cards the next time when we are in Europe .

Simple and convenient

I can’t stress how easy to use this was! I got off the plane in Greece, popped in my sim, did nothing for 30 mins, no details to enter or setup process, and was connected. I had data, texts and calls within Europe. I saved a webpage to show me where my usage was up to, I am in Europe for a month and so far it looks like 12GB is the perfect amount, I have been spamming family and friends on Instagram and using lots of google maps.

Another successful sim experience

We regularly purchase sims for our overseas trips from SimsDirect & we have not been disappointed. This trip we travelled to Germany & Croatia. It was as simple as plug the sim into our phone upon landing in Germany & the sim was active by the time we reached the airport exit. Our friend opted to buy a local sim on arrival & it was a lot of hassles to activate & he was left saying he wished he had done what we had done & bought a sim from SimsDirect before he left.

The SIM card was great, had no issues with the operation, delivery etc. The big issue for us was that we were unable to add data when the usage ran out. Probably should have read the fine print and maybe ordered two cards! Left us a bit stranded until we were able to purchase another data pack overseas from a different supplier.

Hey Barbara, Thanks for your feedback. We do mention that the SIM cards can't be topped up. Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do about it as ThreeUK will only accept UK credit cards. Hope it wasn't too much of a pain. Thankyou, -Aidan
