Smarty offers three data plans which run for 30 days from date of activation. You can choose if these plans automatically renew on their anniversary date, like a contract, or if the SIM pauses requiring you to purchase another data plan at a later stage, like Pay As You Go.
If you choose automatic renewal, you can amend the plan that renews at any point until the day of renewal. If you choose not to renew automatically, then the SIM will remain dormant for up to 6 months.
The Smarty SIM card requires activation and will display ‘No Service’ until it has been registered, so you will need to have access to an alternative internet connection. In order to activate, you will be asked to purchase a data plan which will start on the day of activation and run for 30 days.
Visit www.smarty.co.uk/activate and enter your 19 digit SIM number found on the packaging or on the SIM itself if the packaging has been discarded. Select the plan you want to buy; we recommend choosing the Unlimited data plan for the first time in order to get a feel for how much data you might need. Provide your address and payment details, that’s it! Your SIM card will be activated as soon as possible.
Smarty (run by Three) does not necessarily represent the best coverage but does represent good value for the UK. Typically, EE offers the best UK coverage in rural and remote location, followed by Vodafone.
Smarty has now launched a number of European add-ons and roaming passes that negate the 12GB fair usage policy.
You can now use your full data allowance with no restrictions by purchasing an ‘EU Data Pass’ for either 1 day or 3 days at a time. You will only be shown this pass if you have an activated data plan on your account of 30GB or more.
If you are on a lower data plan such as 12GB for example, you can purchase a ‘Data Add-On’ if more data is required when roaming.
The data add-ons never expire and there are 6 to choose from, all of which can be used abroad, over and above the 12GB fair usage limit.
