Three 'Pay As You Go Sim Card'. Is it good?

Hi Tripadvisors,

I am planning to visit London for four days and I am planning to buy a Pay As You Go Card from www.three.co.uk/Store/SIM/Pay_As_You_Go

My main intention is to use it for data only. I need to whatsapp, surf facebook and find directions using Google Maps. I understand London has lots of wifi but I just would like a permanent data connection on my phone.

It seems to have an attractive data package. Can anyone share me their experience using this card?

Thank you for sharing. :)

I have a 3 Pre Paid SIM that I use in my MiFi (Mobile Wifi) device. Reception is excellent with it... the signal is often stronger than the O2 one on my mobile.

Not to worry, I won't venture off London. I'll be in London all the time. How long does it take to activate the card? I had experience where it takes 2 days to activate the card.

I can also recommend it. I used a 3 card for all my phone and data needs while in London plus calls to Australia.

That is heartening to hear it can be activated within minutes. I'll just have to find the shops then. :)
