Ok so following my last question reSmiley Tongueayback points I looked further into my options and now notice the gigabags. These are for things like dongles to be used with, however my new question is judging by my usage on my phone I would require approx 3gig data per month for a dongle but there are only 2 gigabags available one is 500mb and the other is 1gig so would I be able to use the £12 per month goodiebag offering 3gig data per month with my dongle with no repercussions or would I have to use a 1gig per month gigabags and just top up more. Alternatively would gg consider offering a 3rd gigabags for people like myself that simply offers 3gig data usage as im sure I wouldn't be the only one wanting to use it. Thanks x

Hi,

 

As has already been said - any of the goodybags with a fixed amount of data can be used in dongles or otherwise tethered to pcs, laptops, tablets & games etc.

 

What we can now do that we couldn't do in the past is start a new goody bag straight away if we run out of data or mins.  In the past we couldn't have more than one goody/giga bag per month.

 

Now you can just get the biggest one you think you need and if you run out of data and want to, you can start a new one, everything resets, and the new one is good for a month, or until you run out of mins or data.

 

hope it helps

Phill
