Last time I needed it 3 did a one month rolling contract "unlimited" data (and it really was unlimited) for a very reasonable fee.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

Thanks for your last post al but didn't you leave the link out Al?

Interesting thread - I'm also planning to leave my contract behind.

This is the missing link…. :-) ... 15&id=1206

Basically, 1 month before your contract ends give notice.

Check your phone is unlocked and get it unlocked if necessary

Wander into a 3 shop and ask for a 321 simm for your phone

A few days before end of contract get a MAC code to move your number

Swap the Simm and follow 3s website instruction to port the number with the code

Off you go…

If you want to go to one of the countries covered by 3s All in One deal, buy a 30 day £10 package that will give you phone text and internet whilst you are there.

All that said I dont know what 3s service is like abroad, or what their coverage is like in the UK. Its seems very inexpensive compared to other payg deals and contracts.

Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. Make a difference...
