iPhone 4 Micro SIM - I guess can be used with an adaptor in any phone.
SIM card cost: £5
Internet - 12 months free internet worth £40 when bought with £10 top-up
Quidco £5 apparently.

Not good for calls: just 100 minutes for £10 monthly topup; 20p/min otherwise.

Usual T-mobile Data fair use policy

You can browse and email as much as you want.

There is a 500MB allowance for streaming videos and uploading and downloading files. If you hit this limit during the month, you won't be able to do this stuff again until the next month.

£10 IF PURCHASED INSTORE

- Pitbikeboy

They seem to have changed the address. The new one is http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/iphone/micro-sim/

Also, I don't remember this: "Please note that the 12 months free internet is for the iPhone 4 only and is not available for the iPad or any other device." I think they can't know what device you are using though.

this is very good. considering orange charges £15 for micro sim and £10 top up which only gets you 250MB a month.

I am pretty sure you can. I have tried it before. Just need to change the default APN to APN setting for mobile broadband simcard then you are good to go.

500mb is very little for video streaming. Once you exceed the limit, you won't be able to stream any video, but you will still be able to browse most website. In my case, i could still stream BBC Live news on ipad app although i have exceeded the limit. Not other video streaming site e.g. youtube though


I did that with t-mobile free 6 months mobile internet PAYG sim card that comes with PAYG phone

Anyone know of a suitable dongle and/or SIM adaptor for those of not able to afford iPads?

Would this be like the old O2 ones where they definately had to be used in an iphone. Would they cancel the data the same as O2 if they found out?

there is another cheaper way of getting free mobile internet.

Get a t-mobile pulse mini for £19.99+ £10 top-up, you will get free 6 months mobile internet.

Go via Quidco/topcashback for £5 pounds

Sell the phone on ebay for £30 (that's the current rate on ebay)

You will end up with £5 from quidco, £10 top-up and free 6 months mobile internet. All free of charge

I'm not sure you're allowed to use this as Mobile Broadband, i.e. with an iPad, MiFi, Laptop etc. These days there's usually a stipulation that it's for mobile phone use only

What does 500mb represent in browsing terms?

If I don't download/stream/YouTube, will I last a month with just normal browsing?

easily. for browsing and emails 500mb is plenty

streaming a normal (not high def) video will give you about 1 1/2 hours ( very roughly )

anyone know of a cheap alternative to mifi and if this would work in it? please :)
#23
has anyone tried using micro sim to full size sim adapter? is working without any slipping?

I would like to used this offer on my android samsung apollo handset.
#24
has anyone tried to use micro sim to full sim adapter from ebay? does it make the job perfectly without any slipping?

I am looking to use it in my android Samsung apollo.
#25
I am no expert in these things. But heard lots of stories about T-Mobile capping 3G internet speed on those sims with phone call function. Might be better to get a mobile broadband sim if you need the faster speed

hamodah,
I got a few pretty decent free adapters from o2 shop last year when iphone4 launched. Said I am sim only user and bought my iphone from apple store they gave me straight away. Never had any problem with the adapters in many many devices.
#26
Yep, T-Mobile's 3G only max out at 0.35mbps on my Sim Only 10 plan with Internet booster, quite disappointed with that.
#27
cracking deal this am going to get one first thing many thanks.
#28
yes u can use on ipad but will need to get sim cut to be microsim

Sim doesn't need to be cut it's already a micro sim as it's for the iPhone 4 which only takes micro sim.

There what I use in my iPad 2, never lost signal. When I used the mifi dongle used to drop out quite a bit.
#31
Yep, been using 3 in my iPad since last year and it's been great. Works a lot better streaming radio in my car than my iPhone which is on O2

Erm, struggling to find the pulse mini on PAYG on their website... I assume that you mean from t-mobile website direct?

ordered tuesday night,had e mail saying out of stock at moment but expecting a delivery of them and as soon as they have them it would be dispatched, 8 hours later had e mail saying the phone had been discontinued!
#35
I know this sounds stupid, but just want to clear it up, do you have to keep topping it up every month to get the mobile internet, or is it just a one off £10 top up to allow 12 months free internet...
Great deal if so but dont want to buy if its topping up £10 a month
#36
same question as above.

Not really. I do plenty of surfing and use about 300mb
#38
Nope its a one off £10 top up for the free 12 months internet. If you choose to top at least £10 a month then T-mobile will throw in an extra 100 mins per month
