To activate this UK Sim Card all you need to do is insert the sim into your phone and turn your phone on. This UK Sim card can activate in any country, so please do not insert the sim until you get to UK. The sim will then automatically connect to a network, which will commence your 30 day plan.
How do I find out my UK phone number?
You will receive a UK phone number which will be printed on the back of this UK sim card packaging. The phone number begins with 07.
In order to make international phone calls from the UK, you will need to add credit to the sim card. You can only add credit whilst you are in the UK at 3 UK stores, supermarkets, petrol stations and convenience stores. Unfortunately, you are unable to top-up online via the 3 UK website, as it requires a UK debit/credit card that is linked to a UK residential address.
Alternatively, we recommend that you use data based apps such as Whatsapp, Viber, Skype, etc to make international phone calls rather than adding credit for international calls.
If you are travelling with another person it is important to have the ability to contact one another at any time especially in an emergency. We highly advise that you both purchase a sim card so you can keep in touch.
International SIM cards require your phone to be unlocked, if you are unsure, please contact your service provider for more details.
Plans are subject to change without notice by the carrier but we will do our best to inform you of any changes as soon as they arise.
3 UK is one of the largest telecommunication service providers in the United Kingdom. 3 UK provides 97% coverage across the UK.
How to check balance?
You can call 333 from the sim at anytime and follow the prompts to check your balanceHow to recharge?
This UK SIM Card plan will last 30 Days from activation. If you are staying longer than 30 days, you will need to recharge the sim. As mentioned above, if you wish to add credit or recharge the sim you can only do this whilst you are in the UK at 3 UK stores, supermarkets, petrol stations and convenience stores. Unfortunately, you are unable to top-up online via the 3 UK website, as it requires a UK debit/credit card that is linked to a UK residential address.
However, we advise that you visit a 3 UK store when recharging, as this will ensure that the recharge has been done correctly and you have received the most appropriate plan.
Alternatively, as another option if you are travelling for longer than 30 days, you can purchase additional sim cards based on the duration of your travels. If you are travelling for 60 days you can purchase 2 separate sim cards, and then swap them over at the end of each 30 day period (however, each sim card will have a different phone number).
