    You can stick a Pay as you Go sim in there if you still want to use it. Pre-pay data plan prices are terrible over here, don't know how good they are where you are.

    I can vouch for this... £15 for only 5Gb a month. terrible. 15Gb is slightly better @ £24 but they tie you into a 18-24month contract which is just unacceptable. if the price for data drops. your stuck paying £25 for the remainder of the contract.

    Its sickening

    if you were in the USA i'd say switch to simple mobility... but your not. best thing would be to switch carriers, renew your contract, or sell it and get a 4G modem (if available)
