setup a three mobile tube password then

When you’re next in a London Underground station with Wi-Fi:

Turn on Wi-Fi on your device.

Search for Virgin Media WiFi from the available connections and connect to it.
On the Virgin Media page that opens in your browser, go to the Other providers dropdown and select Three.

Enter your Three number and the password you chose, then select Register.

You’ll now be able to connect to Wi-Fi in London Underground stations. Your device will remember your details in future, so you’ll automatically connect next time you’re at a participating underground station.

Lost your mobile ? then just recover your number over the web !

If you are on giffgaff or VectoneMobile then you can disable / ‘recover’ / switch your number over the web if you have a backup SIM . Just login to your mobile networks web portal then navigate to UPDATE MY SIM your old SIM can be shutdown and number transferred to your new SIM.



BUT DO NOT FORGET YOUR WEB PASSWORD since password resets are only SMS’d to your OLD / LOST mobile !
