Sim card question.

Hi guys and girls, I'm looking to get a new phone but first want to get a sim card sorted. I'm looking for a pay as you go that if i top up will give me unlimited internet use when I'm at home or out and about with the healthiest amount of minutes and texts possible. Looking to top up between £10 - £15 each time might stretch to £20 if i have to.

Dont mind which network, plus I'm not too clued up when it comes to phone jargon so if people could avoid too technical talk I would really appreciate it.

Thanks alot peeps.

yeah any network is cool, will have a look at vodafone cheers mate.

EDIT: I've found this plan on T-Mobile but not sure about something. For 3gb of internet usage I can either pay an extra £12.50 per month or £10.00 per month for duration of plan. Heres the link:

Not really sure what the cheaper option means? Any idea? Really appreciate your help so far dude.

You may aswell get the Solo 20 (fixed)... 600mins, Unlimited text & free internet for £20 per mth... Because its the fixed version, as soon as your allowances run out, it changes to pay as you go, so you don't need to worry about ever running up a large bill as you'll need to top up the phone ;-).

that looks brill mate, so if I miss a top up, I can just top up again any time and I'll get everything back again? also how much is 1gb of use on the internet?

cheers mate really appreciate this, have some rep.

No problem...!

It's on a rolling 30day contract, so you'll get your allowances every month regardless of if you top up or not. The top up is so you can make calls if you finish your allowances, saving you running up a bill (so you have total control over your usage!). So you'll be billed for precisely £20 each mth which gives you the 600mins, internet & unltd txts, then any you can choose to top up anything extra at anytime during your billing cycle. THen obviously, if you decide to cancel it at anytime, you just give 30days notice...

The internet is capped at 1gb per mth, and T-mobile do not charge you if you do go over the allowance. But then again, I have the iPhone 3g with 1gb allowance from T-mobile and I never go anywhere near the limit, even with heavy usage - so 1gb per mth should be more than enough ;-).

So I top up £20 a month which gets me all the texts/mins/internet. If I dont top up when I'm next due to I still get all my mins/text/internet? And they dont charge me for going over my internet usage?

Lol sorry mate I'm probably being really stupid here but that sound too good to be true!? Like I said I've probs missed something here and thanks again for helping me out lol.

Noooooooooooooo, you don't top up £20 per mth!... You'll be billed £20 per mth (which will be the same for every month as it is a fixed contract).

You wouldn't actually have to 'top up' unless you finished all of your minutes as once you finish the minutes it turns into a pay as you go (so you can only make calls if you have topped up), because you'll have unltd texts and internet, you'll still be able to use those if you have run out of minutes..

You'll get all your minutes again once your billing cycle date comes - which is usually the date of the mth you took the contract out... so for instance if you took the contract out today, your billing cycle would be 28th of each mth so on the 28th Jan they'll give you all your allowances again.

This was taken from the T-mobile site: "Solo Fixed - enjoy peace of mind and make sure you never pay more than your monthly allowance. If your minutes run out, you'll need to top up to use more - just like pay as you go"

Hope this helps, sorry if I am confusing you lol :oops:.
