Hi guys :0)

Just bought a Mifi device and put a GG 9gb sim into it. Works great !! 

Thing is, I'm already just over 2 gb into it and it's only been running a pc for 3 hours.

What do I do when this runs out ?? Can I top up straight away or do I have to wait for 30 days before I get online again ??

What can you recommend to run a Mifi that will have 3 phones, a laptop, a pc and 2 consoles running on it ?? 

 

Thanks in advance for your response :0)

You're going to spend a fortune using goody bags like that. Ideally you need home broadband, failing that, and if you don't want a contract, try three's PAYG sims. A lot more data for your money.

i`d recommend home broadband.

anyway you can start another goodybag early 

If you have less than 50 minutes or 50MB left in your goodybag, a message will appear under "My goodybags"  https://giffgaff.com/dashboard

so if its a recurring or queued goodybag you can start it now

Using this for what you are doing is not good ull eat all data in no time and ull also run into paying out tuns on it. Get home broadband and get an unlimited deal. Running that much on logically time to step up to £20 to £30 home broadband problem solved. If your your adamant on mifi then unlimited tarriff from someone

I've got a HUAWEI mobile WiFI to use when I'm away in the caravan but I'm struggling to find a data only sim, most of them seem to be a payg contract with calls and text but if you use it for MiFi it's only there for data you can't do anything else. The other problem seems to be monthly usage, we go away about 5 or 6 times a year april to sept for a week at a time so it would be good if it was a true payg. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance people.
