Another 3 Mobile question!

Just a quickie for all the experts.

Gonna buy PAYG 3 sims but just wanted some expert advice on how much data to go for if I plan to use google maps on my phone? Will the 12GB data be enough or shall I just go the whole hog and get the unlimited for £35?

Thoughts and ideas would be very welcome

No point buying £35 as 12gb is the max even in unlimited as itís capped ( so we found out in the small print and on here) Iíve bought ds 12gb and he hasnít even used 1yet . Used it all the time as well . Iíd say 5gb max is more than enough .

Ps order the free sim , set up account then add top up .

Been on a 12gb contract with 3 for a couple of years, drive everyday use Google maps all the time, it would be a shock if I used more than 5gb all month that includes browsing.

Ah fab, that's really great to know... thanks Mexy! And yep, just ordered the free sims :-D

Presume we can pop the new sim in, make sure data roaming is on, make a call over here and then just remove it until we're airborne? Just in case I need to be contacted on my old number whilst still at airport (I know, I'm sad! )

First and second times I just put the 3 sim in and it was fine, last year I put it in and although I had a US carrier to make calls I had no data and had to contact them on live chat via WiFi to activate the sim.
