    I bought a Three SIM with my new iPad from Apple. It cost £5.

    It was a 1gb/1 month card that should have expired yesterday but it's still working fine. In fact I'm browsing now using it.

    If I visit the Three page I get told "You don't have any allowance left to use". I haven't bought top ups. In fact I didn't register with Three and they don't have my details.

    Any ideas what's going on? Do I have the everlasting SIM card or is this just a normal thing?

    FWIW the sim had 750MB left on it yesterday, when it was still 'valid', because I'm only a light user of cellular data.

    I usually find that I get an extra 24-36 hours, then it just starts redirecting me to a top up page.

    I highly recommend the 3 month / 3GB card from prepaymania on the Amazon marketplace. Usually around £11-12 and 3 months data. Great value. I've been buying them for me and the other iPad owners in the family for 18 months or so now, no issues, no hassle.
