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.

My Voda 100GB SIM is due to run out in Nov so I am starting to look around.
Not sure if this will interest anyone but I currently have a personal phone contract on EE and they said I could get an extra SIM and share my unlimited data allowance with the extra SIM for £8-10 a month. I know the Three SIM is cheaper but the coverage around where I live is rubbish on Three.

Also none of that crap registration system Voda makes you follow.

Just make sure the EE sim is data only. I believe they have to be to work. If they are data/voice it might not work.

£8-10 a month sounds hell of a lot given I'll have spent £30 on two years with a 3 sim. I've been surprised many times that the 3 coverage is better than O2.

I have tried 3 Sims in the past and they have no coverage for about 1-2 miles in all directions from where I live. Would make the change over a lot cheaper if it worked.

I think most forum users that have this got it from Amazon. I certainly did. Search for "Three sim 24gb"
