not that amazing, and quidco probably will not pay
#2
hot for me
#3
i think its good...considering its a 12 month contract aswell....what phones are available on this...or isnt there any?
banned#4
im assuming this is a sim only deal, so an okish deal only if quidco payout, no guarentees on that
#5
ive been on this deal for 8 months and i love, i can never go over my minutes, although i pay £20 a month for it but can cancel with 30 days notice, and my quidco went through easily in 7 weeks, the money is well spent, i'm gonna cancel mines now tho and sign up to the £15 a month and get the cash back!!
#6
Seems pretty good to me or am i missing something here?
few months back, i got the o2 simplicity 12 month tariff for £20/month sim-only.
#7
Hot for me - especially as Voda are the only provider with a consistent 3G connection where I live. Can't see there be any problems with Quidco with such a large company either. Hot from me - but hope they have a reasonable bolt-on for data charges...
#8
Unlimited texts!
#9
I've just gone to Quidco but can't see £60 listed ....
#10
I signed upto the sim package works out at £10 a month for 100 mins 500 txts plus internet after quidco who have paid up already.
banned#11
its there, put vodafone in search, then it will come up with the £100 and there it says see the £15 per month, clcik it and its £60

Under the Vodafone 12 month SIM Only tariff cashback theres another two clckable links, hope that makes sense

Thanks sassie - I just saw the first vodafone link. Need reading lesons :oops: :-D

tis ok, think i need writing ones - lol
#14
Damn - no option for data usage though - no way of getting unlimited data added? I wouldn't sign up to a contract with data on payg basis...
#15
just call them after and ask for the unlimited data pack - about 5 squid a month for the life of your price plan

I think I read somewhere that Vodafone's unlimited Internet has a fair usage limit of only 500mb / month .. so much for unlimited:x

(unlimited Texts has a limit of 3000)

Just talked with a salesperson who insisted that Quidco sell the Vodafone contracts on a commission basis like carphone warehouse, so I had to talk to them. She was adamant vodafone never pay any money to Quidco. When I tried to explain the difference, she said "even my manager has confirmed this!" Oh well, since god has spoken it must be true :roll: I hung up, so no answer I'm afraid.

Yeah, but I doubt either she or her manager have heard of Quidco. I think she was doing the usual salesperson trick of talking out of her bum with confidence, taking a little bit of knowledge (the word 'cashback' in this case) and applying it to the thing being talked about. * Voilà! That makes it true!

My manager said so. It must be true! Where have I heard that logic before? Oh yes, in primary school: My daddy said so. It must be true! :roll:

Grrrrrrr ..... these stupid people make me stupid :lol:

:thumbsup:Totally agree with you - vodafone people sure are stupid but great at talking out of the bums:whistling::!!!!

Vodafone have funny sales/customer team. I spoke to them a few months back asking about best offer they could give me as a retainer. I told them it was rubbish, compared to what I would get if I cancelled my contract and took up another one via quidco and also got cash back. First they said they knew nothing about quidco, then line went dead and she said quidco have nothing to do with us we can't guarantee you'll get any money from them because we don't have any dealings with them.

So who do you believe? do you really believe vodafone don't know about quidco? I'm sure all competitors offers etc flash up on their screen when someone calls to cancel their contract so they know what they have to play with in negotiations.

They do have nothing to do with Quidco - it will be their marketing department. In effect you are just clicking an advert on Quidco, vodafone then pay quidco for referring you to them and they just pass it on to you.

And Vodafone won't attempt to match any forms of cashback as they aren't guaranteed, I tried!

Charlie Brown - Quidco won't come up as a competitive offer as its a cashback site referring you to vodafone. When you buy via quidco you are buying direct from vodafone, quidco just get a commission payment they give back to you.

sassie
this can invalidate your quidco cashback, so if you can do this wait till quidco has paid out


it won't as it is just an add on to your order. quidco will pay as long as you remain connected to vodafone when it gets validated.

plus if you add the internet pack online - you get first month free thereafter £7.50pm (cancellable anytime). get the month free and cancel the pack at the end of your first month OR change it to £5pm pack for the life of the contract (cannot be cancelled!)

Most telecommunication companies use the word "Unlimited" just to get your attention first but when you read the small print of the contracts, they do have Fair Usage Policies (FUP) or Excessive Usage Policies (EUP) involved as I would know this since I work for the UK's largest mobile phone network operator with over 20 million customers.

This is to ensure that other customers are not impacted/affected by a small minority of customers who REALLY THINK that "Unlimited" means 24/7/365 days of relentless downloading for a measly small monthly fee that expects 100% coverage at all times. You will be surprised that some customers believe that GPS, Voip Skype, video streaming, file sharing, P2P, instant messaging can be use for unlimited purposes & when their bills pop in the post, they get the shock of their lives & don't want to pay for their bills. Does anyone take responsibility for their own actions? Do you realise that these kind of services are actually constantly downloading data all the time hence the bandwidth is much much higher hence many telecommunication companies frown upon such use? Could you imagine with such use with many customers taking advantage at the same time could potentially congest the whole network & impact other customers. Would this be fair for the rest of the customers who moderately use this service?

Would you rather want to hear something that sticks to your head as that shouts to you, "UNLIMITED", "FREE" or would you prefer to hear it's "LIMITED", "BOGOF"? I think I know what I would like to hear but I would be cautious of the deal. There is no such thing as a FREE lunch unless there is catch. For example, when you order a take-out & you get free delivery, who pays for the delivery driver to drop off your meal, someone has to absorb the extra cost involved which is why the meals would have included this either reducing the volume of food, the quality of ingredients, reducing packaging or even paying the cooking/driver less money.

Remember, when you sign any contract, do you ever read the T&C's? Would you sign a mortgage, personal loans, credit cards, hire purchase contracts, etc without reading the small print for any penalties let alone signing a mobile phone 12/18/24/36 contract. It's beggars belief that some customers really can be one side minded & don't see the bigger picture on what they are signing to & expects or just blames that customers are always right.

As for cashback deals, not everyone would have heard ALL the cashback providers or how would they work on commission with the mobile phone network providers. How does cashback shopping work?


The Customer Is Not Always Right!
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of working in retail, service or other public-facing jobs, you’ve inevitably come across that occasional customer that either makes your blood boil, tickles your funny bone or leaves you totally confused. We all need a place to vent, so Not Always Right is a collection of quotes from these particularly memorable customers.
We believe that while customers deserve to be treated right, so do the employees and the other folks that serve them. Not Always Right is about leveling the playing field for those of us who toil and sweat every day trying to juggle demanding customers and often unreasonable corporate expectations. At the end of the day, it’s about remembering that whether we’re a customer or an employee, we’re all human, foibles and all.

If internet access is a necessity as it is for me, then o2 simplicity 20 which offers same number of minutes 1200 texts and unlimited internet (the 200mb limit has now been lifted) for £19.50 on a monthly contract is better while the equivalent 12 month contract offers 800 mins.

T-mobile offers a similar tariff as o2 with unlimited text, but charge 12p a minute to retrieve voicemails.

A load of rubbish. The definition of unlimited is no limits. You can't have a headline saying unlimited then put limits in the T&Cs without blatantly lying and deliberately misleading customers.

A load of rubbish. The definition of unlimited is no limits. You can't have a headline saying unlimited then put limits in the T&Cs without blatantly lying and deliberately misleading customers.

I'm aware that "Unlimited" means not limited, restricted or infinite in accordance to [COLOR=#0000ff]Oxford English Dictionary[/COLOR][COLOR=black]. So how much do you want for data then? 200MB? 500MB? 1GB? 3GB? 5GB? 10GB? 30GB? 50GB? 100GB? The list could go on. The point of the headline is to grab your attention as is that not adverts were meant to be in the first place. Does the headline getting 200MB of data included with the voice tariff grabs your attention? Or, do you think FREE or UNLIMITED grabs your attention the most? Mobile phone networks are here to provide a service & not deliberately misleading customers. Blantantly lying is a strong word to use, don't you think? Do you shop blindfoldingly or do you REALLY shop around before deciding?[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]If that was the case, then why do most people still agreeing to registering mobile phone contracts. The customer has a choice with many mobile phone networks offering many tariffs. I can guarantee that every UK mobile phone network will have some sort FUP/EUP that is to protect the customers & business if they reasonably suspects you are not acting in accordance with the service T&C policy. Mobile phone networks do legally reserves the right to impose further charges, impose network protection controls which may reduce your speed of transmission, remove the data services from your account or disconnect your tariff at any time, having attempted to contact you first.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]Every new/upgrade mobile contract allows 14 days return policy even change of handset if you are not happy with the service T&C's. So there is no excuse that if customers are not happy with the service T&C's within the 14 days & not to cancel the contract. What is wrong with customers asking questions before signing the contract. Have you got an issue with that?[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]You may claim that the mobile phone companies have be using the word "Unlimited" quite often but do you think for one moment that the legal teams of mobile phone companies have not even thought about this before using the term on their marketing material. The legal teams do check all marketing material before been approved for distribution especially when it comes to new promotions & deals.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]If there was a Public backlash on this with ALL companies, not just mobile phone network providers then why don't the Ofcom or ASA regulators make it a legislation not to use this term "Unlimited" forcing ALL mobile phone network providers not to use this word by law. All mobile phone networks do have telecommunication regulator guidelines & advertising standard agency guidelines to follow but these are advice guidelines & not neccessary compulsary. But they do have some guidelines to absolutely follow. Otherwise, the word "Unlimited" would have been long gone a couple of years ago if it was deem unlawful.[/COLOR]

I am not here to argue with anyone but giving my opinion on a bigger picture. Don't just take everything by face value & not checking the small print. No one is pointing a gun to your head & forcing you to sign the dotted line. If your not happy with it then don't sign it.
