Talkmobile are offering 300minutes/1000 texts/500MB of data a month on a 6 month contract for £8 a month. The deal price comes from the fact that quidco are offering £30 cashback if you take out this tariff, making the monthly cost £3 a month for the term of the contract:

6 months*£8=£48.
Minus £30 cash back= £18 (total for 6 months)
cost per month = £18/6 = £3

This is perfect for people that want a short term contract who have come to the end of their smartphone contract and don't want to keep paying £20+/month but are waiting for the next decent phone to be launched (like me!) and don't want to go onto pay as you go.

I cant find a SIM only contract for less than this that offers a *reasonable* amount of data allowance. If anybody can find a cheaper tariff, please let me know!

If Quidco isn't your thing, TopCashBack is offering £30.30 so the monthly cost works out to £2.95 ;) Not a fan of TCB myself so I'm happy to pay the extra 5p a month (_;)

Looks like a sweet deal to me, have some heat!

Seems like the deal has been around for a while, although it's not always a bad thing to get reminded of the decent ones. Even without the quidco, this is still reasonable for what you are getting, without being tied down for a year or more. Heat added.

Would be good to mention that Talk mobile is out of Micro sims. Has anyone cut one on their own?

Data on Talkmobile is worse that dreadful. I'm counting down the days until my contract is up and I can get rid of the shower of s***

What do you mean by this? Is it slow? Not enough data? They are using Vodafone network I think.

Let me know as I'm considering this deal for my wife

I bought an htc one x sim free and wanted the cheapest deal around.

So I tried to get one sim from them but it was refused. Got this email back saying

Thanks for ordering from Talkmobile
Sorry, we can't process this order
You didn't meet all the criteria of a credit check carried out by Talkmobile. Due to this we can't connect you at this time.

I still have a contract with them that is £30 that runs out this month, so they don't accept a £8 one oO

And i have credit cards and a mortgage on the house.

Oh well, ended up getting a t mobile for £8.50 100+250 m, 5000 txt, unlimited internet

Data on my TalkMobile is just fine. And yes, it is Vodafone.

Looks like a good deal, I must have missed this in the other thread. Thanks!

Does anyone know if your charged to listen to your voicemail on this? The terms seem to say you don't but the charges list indicates you may.

Can you transfer your current mobile number over to this lot?

Hot for me, I was going to change my tesco mobile sim only contract for the talk mobile 600 mins 6 month plan (as this deal does not have enough minutes for me) but you have to pay call charges to access your voice mail as its not included in your call allowance.

do quidco payback straight away?

I have used Quidco for around 6 years. I've never had a problem with payments, tracking issues get dealt with quite quickly, unlike topcashback. TCB never seems to track for me.

Does anyone pay straight away??

1. What calls are included? Some networks dont allow calls to networks such as LycaMobile or Lebara (eg TMobile)

2. With voicemail, can you disable it?

I just had a quick look at the webpage and it says "Keep your number" on the linked page so I guess so. I will give it a go and see if it possible.

EDIT: There is a box to put in your PAC code on the order page in order to port your number.
