Re: SIM card - again

Usually the 3 SIM comes in a credit card piece of plastic that the SIM is pushed out of. The credit card piece of plastic has both the number (telephone number) and the SIM Id printed on the reverse.

Re: Remote start - what a God send

To me, remote start is one of the best features. It's a big part of why I've ordered another Volvo & not something else. Contrary to what's been said above, I find that it can get the interior warm, even on the coldest mornings. Important to note that I'm talking petrol engine & it does need at lea...

Re: Remote start - what a God send

Absorbent seat option 🤢 😂 This is something I can’t wait to use. Cold, early morning starts will so much more bearable with this. The remote start I mean, not the absorbent seat! 😂 Are you in the UK, with the UK spec? Having the remote start is fine for clearing the windscreen of ice, but does litt...

Re: Inscription

Mine must have a fault, it's incapable of holding a ticket. Perhaps I should reject the car, I've only had it 9 months!!

Re: SIM card - again

Certainly won't be buying a Vodafone plan when my current one ends. £100/year or the "recommended" one is £20/month (wow! 240/year).

Re: SIM card - again

I've just logged onto Vodafone to see my Volvo useage, for the first time, it's the free 100 GB SIM. After 9 months of use I have 98.3 GB left !! Obviously I'm not a big user.

Certainly to log onto the Vodafone site to see the useage it sent a SMS to my separate mobile phone for logon validation

Re: SIM card - again

Didn't work like that for me when I tried it. Can't remember exactly but it either send the number to the car, and it was visible.on screen or to a separate mobile. For me I started off buying a 2 year 3 deal, and it worked fine and, as above, I could log on the internet to see useage. Then I found ...

Re: Inscription

I've only used the windscreen ticket holder once in 12 months, I just put the ticket on the dash now. It's very flimsy and doesn't really fulfill its remit of holding the ticket firmly against the screen. I put the parking ticket in only to see it slide down the window, entering the gap between win...

Re: Remote start - what a God send

Hope you got the absorbant seat option.
