A lovely friend of ours who isn;t working at the mo is finding it difficult to keep up with his PAYG mobile, it's old SIM card he has and it costs him a fortune.
Typical story, he's skint and he doesn't have a bank account that will accept direct debits, and so he can't take up a good offer on contract deals, etc...!
He's desperately looking for work and it's hard when his credit runs out - he can't access voicemail as they charge him, and he can't ring people back about jobs, etc as and when.
We bought him a dongle with Vodaphone as he has no landline, but this too is stressing him out as he says it's sooo slow and costs a fortune to top up.
So...we figured get him a contract deal and we'll pay from our bank account and and he can pay us back.
But which one is best/cheapest? He'll need quite mostly talktime probably mainly to landlines, free answering machine, a few free texts would be fab. he's happy with his very old mobile phone as he's a bit of a technophobe, so SIM ony would be best, probably.
He can afford about £10-15 per month max really, more £10 than £15 if poss...
If anyone has a cracking deal they know of we'd love to hear about it. I'm surfing the net as I'm typing to find them but my kids are fighting and so all help welcomed, lol!
Oh, and really cheap but reliable broadband deals, any about? I'm a bit wary of them because of scare stories re Tiscali and TalkTalk...!
Thanks so much if anyone can help,
