I only but two at a time, because I have two Huawei devices, one for the car and one for a mobile modem, the latter, I use when travelling, staying in hotels, etc.

Do not understand what you mean about an email address?
These data sims connect you to the internet via Three and from there, everything is similar to your home connection.

Thanks again. What I meant was if you are in the car without your phone, something I occasionally am guilty of, can you be contacted in any way.

Nope, although you can contact Volvo if you have VoC as that functionality is provided via the in-built (hidden) SIM.

Yes, that is what I thought.
I have my mobile with me 99% of the time and can read any texts, via Sensus.
Have to admit, I have not tried replying to a text with Sensus.

Given my experience of the Voice recognition on the S90, the first time I used it I expected it to translate to some form of pidgin Swahili. Actually found it works quite well, and often use it now

I ordered a 12GB sim from mymemory on Saturday and got an email today to say the order was cancelled as the sim is out of stock. Not sure when they will be available again.
