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 it is data only. However, you can use your data to make calls and texts.

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.

 

 

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 365 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 (07). 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’.

Sim Card Review

We were very happy with this sim card. We used it in several countries around Europe and it worked really well almost all of the time. Would definitely get this sim card next time we travel.

Easy to use

Generally good. Transition between countries was automatic and easy. Plenty of talk , text and data. Data has content filtering which is automatically set to ON by the provider and can only be changed in the UK but impact of this was very minor. Tethering worked fine.

Denmark, Germany, Austria & France all good.

We bought 2 Sims for a 6-week vacation in Europe, activating both before we departed. Both phones worked fine throughout Europe from the moment of arrival. A bonus was both of them working during our Singapore transit. We had a minor issue before leaving that SimsDirect quickly got sorted out for us.
