- Contract free SIM for iPad?
I’ve got an iPad mini, I want to use the 4G very occasionally. Is pay and go still my best bet? When you buy 20gb of data it only rolls over for a few months.Posted 1 month agotimburMember
Wouldn’t it be easier to tether it to your phone when you need to?Posted 1 month ago
yeah but the phone battery just does to quickly with a lot of 4g usePosted 1 month agoandrewreayMember
I was looking for the same. In the end, I gave up on PAYG and found a monthly SIM only contract instead.
There were so many complications with PAYG it was too much hassle. Namely: lack of roll over; prohibitive costs over/outside bundle; auto top up shenanigans… etc.
Most will only roll over the unused data if you top up again the following month, so you end up paying every month anyway.
Found a cheap SIM only monthly deal instead. There’s no minimum term, and I can cancel whenever. It’s all of a fiver a month, so not a huge amount per year, and saves the hassle of topping up and / or losing unused data.
Try iD: iD £6 per month 2GB
Cheaper versions and deals are available.
Your regular mobile provider or home broadband provider might offer really good deals if you link to your existing account.Posted 1 month agoCraigWMember
Three have a preloaded data SIM. 24GB for £43, valid for up to 24 months.
So could be good for irregular use.
Depends on whether you have any coverage from 3. Seems they are usually cheapest for data.Posted 1 month agolungeSubscriber
Buy a battery pack for your phone and tether? Something like this, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00VJSGT2A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_F98nEbVQW1JQ5Posted 1 month agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
Those Three 24GB prepaid SIMs lasts 24-months from activation, they can be as cheap as ~£31 like they were around Black Friday and Xmas.
The 12GB variant only lasts 12-months from activation.Posted 1 month agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
Three used to do a deal where you could buy a PAYG SIM with, say £10 on it, register it and get 200Mb/m free after that – not sure if it’s still current though.Posted 1 month agotomparkinMember

Thanks all, I’ll probably go with three as I’m with them already. Shame they make it complicated.Posted 1 month agolerkMember
Have a look at penny mobile (www.1pmobile.com)
I use this as a backup data source and certainly when I looked these seemed to be the best value option.Posted 1 month ago
