Mobile Phones

What are people doing about their mobile phones?
I don't know whether to use the sim provided by camp america or just get a sim only contract on 3?

I have looked into all of th SIM cards and the CA one we were given works out much cheaper per call and text etc. The CA one is 9 cents a min for a call and its 14p Permian for 3.

Also, in the fine print of the 3 PAYG, it says you are only allowed 1 month worth of all you can eat data otherwise you are at risk of them cancelling the contract with them. I've gone for the SIM card from CA without the data as I know I'll be able to connect to Wifi easily.

Best thing to do is weigh up what you need v what you don't

Hope this helps :)

Last year I went to T-Mobile store in America and got unlimited data for $30

Works out cheaper over there if you want it just for data! :)

Iv decided to go pay as you go with three. I was all set for the CA sim but then I seen that each top up only lasts for 30 days :cry:

I bought a sim from Three. They have that thing now where you can spend your mins and data as if you are still in the UK- therefore no roaming charges.

I got the sim on a monthly contract for £20 - all you can eat data, 200 etc...
I think this will be the cheaper option for me especially considering where I'm going is in the middle of nowhere, with no wifi.
