UK: iPad Mini Sims in London?

First of all, I won't be using EE as their subscriptions are ridiculously priced and in truth their network is pretty slow.

I've been to 3 O2 shops, three Carphone Warehouses and a Three store. Nothing that I can pop into my iPad then and there.

Oh yeah, and Apple Regent Street was no help at all.

So where are people getting their sims? And who is recommended for PAYG service?

I ordered a 12gb 90day 3 sim.

and a 2.99 sim cutter from ebay

So for 15 I have 12gb of 3g data to use over the next 90 days.

If I use it all, I'll just buy another sim (and cut it down), if I don't use it, well hey it's only 5/month effectively.

I've ordered the 10gb rolling contract for 15 from three. Sim came the next day. I also went through the quidco site so hopefully will get some cash back.

Excuse me for asking but where can you get the 12gb sims for 15 from? I don't think I'll need 10gb a month but it is 15 to top up for 3gb with three. As I'm on a rolling contract, I can cancel anytime so am still considering all the options.

Thanks

I'm really trying to avoid a contract as I can use WiFi so much of the time here in London that the amount of 3G data I use is really erratic.

For 16 a month I get 5GB LTE with EE. Download speed with 4G is pretty fast but upload is amazing.

I use a GiffGaff SIM (comes per-cut) on a £5 per month for 500MB no contract tariff (they piggyback off O2). Works a charm and is really cheap.

Do you have a link for this? I looked all over the site the other day and couldn't see it.

I'd like a link too. Terrific deal. Best I can find at 3 is 3GB for 90 days for about 20 GBP.

3 Nano Sim

I walked into the Three store opposite Charing Cross Station and walked out with a 20.49 Nano SIM that went straight into my iPad mini.

I'm up near Tottenham Court Road all week, so may have a wander around tomorrow.
