If you are in the UK (like me) I bought a "3 Mobile Pay As You Go Trio Data SIM Preloaded with 12 GB of Data" for £24.99 on 9th June and got the dealer to fit it as part of the handover. It lasts for 12months and should be ample. However just noticed it's gone up by £10.

I also got a "Samsung MUF-BB 64 GB USB 3.0 MicroFit Flash Drive - White" from the same place to hold my music. Fits the usb input on the XE unobtrusively.
That's what I bought but 90% of the data has been used in 3 weeks

Is your WiFi hotspot on?

Is it secure? Or have you given access to anyone with it. Know of colleagues with a mifi, who had their kids tablet on it. Went abroad and the tablet was downloading movies over roaming data til the cap was used up...all unbeknown to him.

Work IT were less than happy....

My data SIM was a year old in July but the display still said 4G or 3G depending on where I was. I assumed it was still working. I had bought a new SIM (£27.99 from MyMemory) but not fitted it as I thought I was getting some sort of extended time on the old one. But I have noticed that I'm not getting live traffic updates anymore. So I assume that although 4G is displayed it is not connecting to the net so I should now install the new SIM!

Mine threw a bit of a wobbler when my previous sim ran out.
Best advice I can give is to remove the old sim and leave the car overnight then put the new one in the next day.
