Getting an iPad? 3UK’s micro-sim is £15 for 10GB/month

3 have announced their rather competitive deals for the iPad. Here are the simple choices:

– 1GB monthly rolling contract: £7.50/month
– 10GB monthly rolling contract: £15/month

Now that sounds pretty good, right? Well it’ll sound even better when you check Vodafone’s iPad price plan which tops out at £25/month for 5GB. Vodafone would have you believe that their network is a heck of a lot better than 3’s. I’ve always found 3 exceedingly good, especially in the case of mobile data speeds.

I think, on balance, I could be persuaded to get a 3 MicroSIM on 7.50/month for my iPad.

But then again, I got the WiFi only version. If I can give that one to the wife then upgrade to the 64GB+3G version, then I think it’s time for 3. That said, there’s a lot of love in the room for Orange too. o2 need to do a bit of work on their network still.

Guys, there is a way to use microSIM card in every mobile phone, and not only in the Iphone 4 or Ipad! I heard there is a thing called micro sim adapter. Basically, you put your microSIM card inside it and use it in any phone. I googlesearched it and found it here: They say it costs 4.5 EUR. They also seem to offer the sticker guide to cut the regular simcard into the microsim. IMHO their price and quality are the best so far.
