It needs to be registered so that they can top it up by 200mb each month.

Plus they probably want to spy on you and sell your data on to various Governments worldwide, a la Arsebook/Twatter et al... ;)

Thanks for this original poster. My SIM has been registered and installed.

My understanding is the SIM needs to be registered in order to qualify for the 200Mb per month free. I also found it impossible to register from the Land Rover web browser as it blocked the Three registration page! In the end I installed the SIM in an old unlocked mobile phone to complete registration as it didn't seem possible to do this from a computer either.

It seems well worth the effort though

You turn hotspot on on your phone and then turn the WiFi on in the car, not hotspot in car. You then connect the car WiFi to the phones hotspot.

Hi Roy
Thanks but how? I touch wifi on the screen and it just goes to some settings lr……. and there stuff,so where do you switch wifi on? I presumed it was on as incontrol from the phone talks to it.

Thank you.


Edit

incontrol is basic and eight inch screen.

I think if you stick it in a phone first off to get it up and running then put it in the car.

Thanks Roy. Perfect. Registered on iPhone and then inserted into car. Just need to keep the bits that the sim comes with as the iPhone takes a smaller sim.
