got this card today.....I doubt if the 12gb will last a year as I was lead
understand the copy seems to say it will but when you call 444 and check my
3 it says it
expires in 30 days...what do you think ? ... I asked the seller to activate
the 12 gab data he activated it on Sunday 21st before he sent it....the
sellers English doesn't appear to be good ....
It says preloaded data that lasts for a year, seems a bit
misleading,must mean that you can keep it in a cupboard for a year but
you can activate it at any time during the year and then you get a month????

No as it says it gets activated when they recieve your order and it takes 2 days to despatch so you can lose 2 days before you even recieve it.
And people wonder why we don;t like eBay for ordering student stuff.

Go online and see what your MyThree control panel says. I think that
like the description URL below this SIM has a 12GB data and 30 day timeout.
The genuine article from Three is 12GB/12 months but there are loads and
loads of confusing PAYG variants these days. Last time I looked EE was
marginally more data for less money but a more fiddly initialisation.

There is now a 24GB for 2 years deal too.
They don't keep once they have been activated. I use the 12GB/year Three
SIMs as backup (and the 3GB/3month ones too). Buying them when they are
on special offer and then burning them up when I need more mobile data
than my contract allows. They are available from Amazon and eBay in a
confusing number of PAYG styles and preloaded data/expiry period so you
do have to be very careful what you buy and read the small print.
The one you have bought looks to be a 12GB data 30day deal PAYG SIM.
"Preloaded with 12GB of Data
3000 MINS & 3000 TEXT
WILL LAST 30 DAYS
YOU CAN THEN TOPUP AGAIN
TO GET NEW PACKAGE"
They have become a fair bit cheaper recently.
It makes no sense to me, I have had a few Three sims of 1 to 4 Gb and
they did not need 'activating' before despatch. So far as I am aware,
they last until activated and I have kept them in a drawer 18 months
unactivated - they have been fine.
These days it is usually cheaper and easier to tether your smartphone to
provide a Wifi link to the internet. Assuming you have a contract that
permits it. I only burn a PAYG data SIM when I run out of contract data.
