Check the operator's terms and conditions. I suspect the answer is that
they're non-transferable.

Stuart:

Perhaps I spoke too soon, the signal seems to be somewhat intermittent. The O2
dongle is still adamant that it's connecting but won't produce anything, I don't
know if it's just a weak signal or a fault with the dongle.

We had a leisurely day, packed when we got up, toddled along and stopped at the
Bala Lake Railway at Llanwchyllyn (sp?) for tea and stickies and to admire the
quarry Hunslet, 'Holy War' that was on the 12:50 train for Bala. As a result, we
didn't arrive at the caravan until early afternoon.

What was the going like? There's still quite a lot of snow piled up on the side
of the roads between Chester and here and it encroaches slightly on the road in
places.
