FEEL AT HOME
If you run out of your allowances included in your add-on/plan or are using Pay As You Go credit, you'll be charged at roaming rates that are lower than normal.
Important Notes on ‘Feel at Home’
- It’s designed for trips away rather than living abroad, so if you use your device exclusively in a Feel At Home country for three months within a twelve month period, you won’t be able to use your device abroad anymore.
- Tethering/hotspot is restricted when roaming, for use just in phone or iPad (however may work tethering sometimes also..depends on country and use).
- You’ll be able to stream and connect to VPNs while in a Feel At Home country but both of these will be slower than they are in the UK.
- If you use more than 25GB of data, 5000 texts or 3000 minutes per month in any two months within a year, you may be blocked from using these services.
- You won’t be able to change your My3 PIN when you're in a Feel At Home country.
