3-mth trip with (no) data
I've messed up with my data planning.
I had notice that giffgaff would stop allowing me to use my package 'as at home' after 2 months of being abroad. Fair enough, that's more than the 6 weeks that is mentioned in TnCs.
And I was prepared, as I thought. I'd got another giffgaff sim and registered it before leaving. I put it in the spare phone yesterday, charged it with a £10 goodybag to make sure it worked before my other one expires tomorrow night. All was well.
Then I got a text this morning to say it looks like I hadn't used the sim in UK and therefore they would be cutting my 'as at home' usage after 2 weeks. So that will leave me about 3 weeks at the 'paying' rate.
I'd have been OK if I'd actually used it for something in the UK.
I'll know next time.
But I'm not entirely stuck - I've just activated my 24-mth 3 'Internet with legs' mifi sim so I can look up campsites etc again. Happy days.
