Pay Monthly Roaming charges

If your current plan started before 1 October 2021, calls and texts to the UK are included in your allowance. If you have a data allowance greater than 12GB, you can use up to this amount of data each month, which will simply come out of your allowance. Data use above this may be blocked for roaming until your next billing period.

If you joined Three or upgraded on or after 1 October 2021, you'll need to pay a daily rate of £5 to unlock your UK allowance in United States. This daily rate will only apply from 23 May 2022. Fair use limits apply.

If you've gone over your allowance in a Go Roam Around the World destination, you'll pay special lower roaming rates, letting you use your phone abroad, or you can buy an Add-on in My3.
