I am looking for advice. The family is going to the UK (mostly) and Europe (a bit) over 6 weeks later in the year. In order to be able to maintain network access for our tablet PCs, I got a Huawei 5220 MiFi (3G only) and will need to purchase a data SIM for it—but the question is, which phone company? I suspect we will need about 5 GB for a month to be on the safe side. I’ve been looking at Three, which seems to have the best data deals and reasonable coverage, signing up for just 1 month (which I think means signing up, and then immediately ending the contract as it seems to need 1 month notice). As usual with phone companies, it’s all very confusing. So I’d be very happy to take advice from you who may know better.
We will also need a phone minutes & text only plan for an old I5503 to give us local calls, preferably from the same company to avoid too much messing about. We will, naturally, be trying very hard not to use our Spark phones in the UK.
I doubt we will be phoning on the Continent, but we may well want to use data...
I’d be very pleased to hear from any of you who have recently done anything like this! Thanks.
