    Get the three data sim comes with 200MB free every month time register right you get 400MB while in the US.

    I just did a 30day addon 4GB unlimited calls and text for £10.

    For low use there is 120MB day for 50p

    That sim also has £2 that comes with 150MB 2day expire.

    Last time I added credit and converted to an add on, I had a text from 3 saying that you can now purchase add ons directly.
    Last time I was in US earlier this year, Three had stopped requiring an add-on to qualify for 1p/MB data. All Three add-ons expire while your 321 credit doesn't. Unless you plan on really heavy data use in a short timespan, I can't see the point of buying any add-ons.

    1p per MB is £10 for 1GB. It's quite possible they would exceed 1 GB over eighteen days.

    Though still useful to know that a bundle isn't required. I didn't know that had changed.

    As an aside, there are plenty of apps which load the maps onto the phone and don't need any data to navigate

    You can also download areas of Google maps to use offline.

    By getting a free SIM, adding £10 and converting that credit to an add-on, how much data will it provide?

    You really need to pay attention, rather than asking the same questions over and over again.

    I've supplied the links that showed you clearly. Again.....4 GB

    Try actually looking at the links supplied....

    I went through the SIM ordering process but didn't receive a confirmation email so repeated it, still no email.
    I contacted Three and they have no record of an order on their system and then I was cut off..
    Have just tried to purchase a prepaid SIM and my Revolut card gets rejected each time..

    Would appreciate any suggestions

    If PAYG is all you need, pick up a Three SIM and a £10 top up voucher at a local convenience store.
