    am taking iPad 2 to australia, can I buy a prepaid microsim before I go, I can't see anything equivalent to the Three net deal for the UK.

    Just buy an amaysim micro sim from simcardguru.co.uk, you can order the sim with delivery to you in the UK (although it is shipped from Australia) so you have it before you leave home. If you buy two, you can use the other in your phone. amaysim use the Optus network, which has good coverage and is much cheaper than getting an Optus, Telstra or Vodafone sim card for your iPad. I use this in my iPad and it works really well. over 7 years ago

    Does anyone know if you can get pre-paid micro-sim cards in the UK that can be used for an iPad?

    Three have pay-as-you-go data plans for the iPad http://www.three.co.uk/Mobile_Broadband/iPad_data_plans O2 also have micro SIM cards for the iPad but I'm not sure if they are available as prepaid or contract only. O2's website wouldn't let me see this information as I'm outside the UK. There is also the option of using a MiFi wireless broadband device (available on prepaid from most UK mobile networks) and then connecting your iPad to it via Wi-Fi. over 9 years ago

    Best pre-paid sim card in New Zealand?

    2 Degrees Mobile is probably the best deal www.2degreesmobile.co.nz NZ prepaid mobile is pretty expensive compared with many other countries, but 2 Degrees is cheaper than the competition. Their prepaid SIMs also include data (50c per MB or $6 for 50MB). Just buy a SIM card from most supermarkets, newsagents or petrol stations. They don't discriminate against non-Kiwis. They'll even sell SIM cards to an Aussie. over 9 years ago

    Are there prepaid data SIMs an international traveler could easily buy when visiting the U.S?

    It looks like you got a good deal. I've used T-Mobile in the past and have been happy with them, but I didn't think that they still had the $59 plan. Data on EDGE isn't a big problem for email, Twitter and most apps and 3G is only really neccessary for video and some VOIP applications. T-Mobile do have high international call charges so it is best to either use a service like Rebtel or the Skype app on your iPhone for any international calls. But for everything else they are a good option. over 9 years ago

    Where are the hostels in San Francisco?

    Most hostels are close to Union Square (BART/Muni Metro: Powell). There are also hostels in Chinatown (Pacific Tradewinds), the Mission District (Elements), North Beach (Green Tortoise) and near Fishermans Wharf (HI Fishermans Wharf). Outside the city limits you'll find hostels in Berkeley and Marin Headlands. For atmosphere, my picks are Green Tortoise or Pacific Tradewinds. http://www.bug.co.uk/reviews/hostels/Americas/North-America/United-States-of-America/West-Coast/California/San-Francisco/index.htm over 9 years ago

    Where's a good hostel to stay in Manhattan?

    I visited loads of hostels when I visited New York City last year. The best ones I saw were MiHostel (near Union Square and the Flatiron District) and Broadway Hotel & Hostel (on the Upper West Side). You can check these here: http://www.bug.co.uk/reviews/hostels/Americas/North-America/United-States-of-America/Mid-Atlantic/New-York/New-York-City/Manhattan/index.htm over 9 years ago

    Whats the best SIM card for travel to the UK?

    Lebara are a good deal with cheap international calls, but I would probably go for an O2 SIM. O2 has some good bolt ons that give you extras like data, cheap international calls and cheap roaming for an additional monthly fee. You can compare the two here http://www.simcardguru.co.uk/category/uk-sim-cards/ Topping up is easy at virtually any corner shop, supermarket, petrol station or supermarket; but you can't top up online unless you have a credit or debit card issued in the UK (so make a big top up before you leave the UK if you're planning on roaming in Europe with the SIM). Other options include 3, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile, etc. 3 may also be worth considering as they have a deal with free Skype-to-Skype calls (although I think this only works with 3's own phones). over 9 years ago
