  1. I don't suppose many people using phones will worry about buying more capacity after 6 months but an increasing number of security type devices, things like doorbells, alarms, vehicle trackers etc need a sim to operate. In many cases they use a microscopic amount of data only very infrequently so people can fit a loaded sim then effectively forget it. By wiping data every 180 days 3 are forcing such users into a regular ongoing payment system. I use a mobile dongle in our campervan, and that gets topped up in the spring if it's low ready for the holiday season, but under their new system it would fail and I lose any outstanding capacity if I don't remember to top up during the winter, a time when I don't need or use it.

    • I hadn't thought about SIMs in other devices.  Fair point.  It still wouldn't rile me enough to raise the blood pressure though.
