That's because My UK SIM Card is a UK SIM Card that roams in Europe (long term use in Europe is not allowed by the network provider). Staying in Europe for longer than 30 days? The solution is to buy two (2) or multiple SIM Cards.

DO I NEED TO GET MY PHONE UNLOCKED? IS MY PHONE TECHNICALLY COMPATIBLE?

Your mobile phone must be network unlocked and technically compatible to use the UK & Europe Phone SIM Card. If your phone isn't network unlocked and/or isn't technically compatible then the UK & Europe Phone SIM Card won't work and you won't be entitled to a refund. "Network unlocked" means that your normal network provider (eg Telstra, Optus) has unlocked your phone to allow it to use a different SIM Card. "Technically compatible" means that your phone operates on the correct network frequencies used in the UK (all iPhones and most other recent model smartphones are technically compatible).

  • As a general rule the SIM Card won't work when you're on a cruise ship.
  • There are hundreds of different cruise ships operating throughout Europe, by many different cruise companies. It's impossible to know for sure whether the SIM Card will work when you're on a cruise ship, so the general rule is that it will NOT work.
  • When the cruise ship is docked at shore, or is cruising very close to shore, you should expect the SIM Card to work. But when the cruise ship is cruising away from the coast or land, the SIM Card will NOT work.
  • You can hotspot your phone and share data with your laptop, iPad, tablet, games console etc. When you're roaming in Europe you can only use up to 12GB due to network roaming restrictions.
  • Calling and texting to Australian landline and mobile numbers is not included and costs extra: you can add extra credit on you UK SIM Card by purchasing a recharge voucher on our website. You can buy the voucher with your Australian credit card or with Paypal (wait until you receive your SIM Card then buy the voucher).
  • Australian mobile roaming in the UK or Europe? It still costs extra to call or text an Australian mobile number that's roaming in the UK or Europe. It's still an Australian number even though it's currently being used in the UK or Europe.
  • When you're in the UK and you call or text an Australian number this is what it costs: £0.03/minute (3p/minute) to call, £0.252 (25.2p) to text and £0.40 (40p) to MMS picture message.
  • When you're in the included 34 European countries and you call or text an number this is what it costs: £1.40/minute to call, £0.016 (1.6p) to text and £0.40 (40p) to MMS picture message.

  • Calls and text to landline and mobile numbers when you're in the 34 European countries comes from your included unlimited calls and texts. For example, if you were in Paris, and called your local Paris hotel, the call minutes would be included in your unlimited calls.
  • To add extra credit to your UK Phone Sim, wait until you receive it from us, then purchase a recharge voucher on our website with your Australian credit card. Full details will come with your sim card about how to do this but you can also read more about how to add extra credit on your UK SIM Card.
  • The UK Phone SIM Card is posted to you from Sydney and comes with a local UK mobile number that you'll know before you leave Australia.
  • If you use up all 30GB then data stops working -- you cannot add more data during the 30 days.

  • Using our SIM Card doesn't change your apps, contacts, emails or any other settings on your phone because they are all stored on your phone, and not on your SIM Card.
  • We use the Three UK mobile network - which covers 98% of the UK population: to check coverage in a specific area, enter the address into the Three UK Coverage Checker. When in Europe, the UK SIM card will roam onto different local networks.
  • Yes - if you're staying longer than 30 days just recharge on our website. You can use your Australian credit card to recharge. You can keep recharging again every 30 days if you're staying even longer (you can keep recharging forever if you want). Unused data, minutes and texts do not rollover. However you can only use the SIM Card for a 30 day continuous period in Europe (the 30 days resets if you use the SIM Card in the UK). Staying longer than 30 days in Europe? Just buy two or multiple SIM Cards.
  • No. We do not currently support eSIM. Our SIM Card is a physical SIM Card that we send to you and which you insert into your phone.
  • Your SIM card is posted from Sydney on the next business day after you order (we don't post on the same day). We use Australia Post.
  • You can choose Regular Post (for free) or Express Post with tracking (for $6.00). If you urgently need a SIM card please choose Express Post.
  • Regular Post with tracking takes 5-10 business days (after we post it) to be delivered (signature is not required).
  • Express Post takes 1 business day (after we post it) only if you're in the Australia Post Express Post Network (which includes the metropolitan areas of most major cities). To find out if you're in the Express Post network, please visit the Australia Post website and check if your post code is in the "Express Post delivery postcodes" list. If you're in Perth please note that the only post codes included are 6000-6005 and 6800-6899.
  • You can re-use your SIM Card within six (6) months of the last recharge. For most customers the "last recharge" will be the date you initially activated the SIM Card in your phone.
  • After six months without a recharge your SIM Card is considered inactive by the Three UK and it is permanently and forever cancelled, cannot be re-used or recharged and the mobile number cannot be retrieved for future use. To confirm, this means that if it has been more than six months since you last recharged your SIM Card cannot be re-used.

Europe Data Coverage with the UK Phone SIM Card

Your new UK Phone SIM Card works right across Europe^. But what does Europe- wide mobile data really mean? It means you can check the football scores when you’re on the beach in Malta. It means when you take a photo of a moose in Finland, or the Eiffel Tower in France, or the sunset from over the Greek islands you can send it for all your friends to see.

It means you can use your phone to book your flight from the mountains of Switzerland to the glaciers of Iceland and know that you’ll automatically have data at both ends.

Poland to Portugal, Ireland to Italy, Bulgaria to Belgium – your UK Phone SIM Card will give your phone fast data speeds.

When travelling outside of the UK, you can use your UK Phone SIM in the following 34 European countries:

Austria France Switzerland Poland
Belgium Germany Italy Portugal
Bulgaria Gibraltar Latvia Republic of Ireland
Croatia Greece Lithuania Romania
Cyprus Hungary Luxembourg Slovakia
Czech Republic Iceland Liechtenstein Slovenia
Denmark Isle of Man Malta Spain
Estonia Guernsey – Channel Island Netherlands Sweden
Finland Jersey – Channel Island Norway

Maximise Your Data Usage When in Europe

Your UK Phone SIM Card comes with a lot of data – a full 30GB. That’s easily enough to see you through the 30 days your SIM card is valid for. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention to how much data you are using. There are certain settings your phone may have, some apps you use and some websites you visit that can quickly drain a lot of your data.

While the amount of data certain operations use depends on many factors, here’s a rough guide to what 30GB of data means. You could

  • Send and receive 240,000 emails, or
  • Instant message chat with your friends for 8 full days, or
  • Spend 4 full days on Facebook or web surfing, or
  • Upload 4000 photos, or
  • Watch YouTube on standard-quality for 36 hours, or
  • Call home with 32 hours of video chat, or
  • Play online games for anything between 32 and 320 hours (it varies wildly), or
  • Watch two movies streaming in HD.

There are other factors to consider rather than overall time. One of the most unexpected ways your mobile device can use up a lot of data without you knowing is automatic app updates. On some devices, apps are set to automatically download large updates regardless of what sort of connection you have. You might not even get a notification that an app you’ve never even used is silently getting a 200MB update. So, go into your mobile device settings and change them so apps can only update if you give permission. There are different ways to do it for iOS and Android. Once you’ve done that hold off on updating until you have a good signal on an unlimited connection.

Keep an eye on your phone SIM balance:

  2. Turn OFF Wi-Fi
  3. Go to https://www.three.co.uk/New_My3/My3_Home
