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:
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!
