Transferred my number over to them recently...really easy, great prices and friendly customer services, unlike vodasham!!
#2
sim is free instore if you buy a 5 pound topup at the same time.
#3
I changed over this week, my only gripe is you have to pay 25p for the privilege of speaking to an operator, which you have to do to transfer your number.

When I got mine I was given £1 credit to cover this.

You'd have to use your phone very little to make this worthwhile.

I paid 50p for the sim,it had a 25p credit for the first call.

quidco has tracked 1p for this sim! yeahhh

Shame GPRS is so expensive otherwise it's a v good deal.
#10
I am quite a light user so it is ideal for me and I mainly use the internet for checking emails which costs 1p to check each time. I occasionally look at the bbc news site but I use the low graphics site to reduce data transfer: http://news.bbc.co.uk/text_only.stm

I meant that if you spent £20 a month on a phone you'd have up to 200 minutes or 500 texts.

Not a lot considering something like an O2 simplicity contract.

I spend less than £5 a month so that why ive been with Asda a while now, dosent suit everybody but a contract dosent suit everybody either :thumbsup:
#14
It's very good! O2 simplicity contract only suitable for those ppl talked a lot regularly.

For me, my usage is varied from time to time. ASDA is my best choice!

Exactly this is PAYG sim not contract sim...Simplicity sims are still contract sims as you have to go through a credit check to use them..

I don't know many people that spend £20 a month on there payg, most people I know! are lucky if they put a tenner on there phone a month so this deal is fantastic..

Also, if you spend £10 a month then you still get more for your money on a simplicity contract.

Okay, but for most people the O2 deal would be better.
banned#19
For example, if you use 60 minutes of talk and 130 texts a month (and don't check your emails, voicemail or send any MMS) then this is still worse than the simplicity deal.

This deal is cold unless you're a hermit.

Stop being a wally, you are comparing a CONTRACT deal with a PAYG deal, you need to compare it with other PAYG deals, apples and pears and all that

It's a 30 day rolling contract. That's pretty much a PAYG considering the cancellation period and low costs. It seems churlish to not take that into account considering you don't even get money off of a phone.

Like I said, for most people this is a rubbish deal.

You speak for "most people" do you? I spend £5 on my phone a month and I am far from a hermit. This is a great deal for me and I plan to switch.

Thank you OP

Asda payg sims are great for occasionally user who don't want to or cant get a contract. Yes stop comparing contract to payg. As contract phone you can run up a huge bill or lose your phone and someone else run up a huge bill for u.

Are you one of those people who drop calls people and then waits for them to phone them back? Naughty.

Apart from the credit check thing (which most people should pass) the simplicity deal is virtually a PAYG deal.

Put a limit on your contract. Conversely I could say that if you need to make a call in an emergency, a PAYG phone without credit could put a stop to it.

If you top up £18 or more a month then it's useless but most people who will click on this thread are probably pay as you go users like me, I top up about £15 every 2 months or so on O2 I rarely call on my mobile and texts cost me 10p but when I do call it costs me a bomb.

This would probably save most pay as you go users a bomb.

Also many people don't like contracts purely cause some have been screwed in the past like me, never got my money back was going to go to court but just couldn't be arsed with it all.

(I canceled 4 times which they refused to do until I eventually canceled the direct debit this was after the contract expired, then a few months later they sent a letter threatening me I would go to court because I canceled the direct debit and I hadn't paid the past few months after the contract ended even though I canceled.)

Also as stated some people will need credit checks, and if you have bad credit history.
#29
It is possible to spend £5 / month on PAYG and not be a recluse at the same time. I'm on O2 and spend about £10 every 2 months; the first month is effectively free because all my expenditure is covered by the free texts deal, and then the month after I top up I actually use my credit.

I would be very tempted by this deal if vodafone didn't have such terrible reception where I live. Thanks OP, H&R added.
#30
Basically if you spend less than £10/month on the Asda sim,its cheaper than the Simplicity contract, as the meerkat says "simples"

I transferred over to Asda PAYG from a 3 contract in Feb and I'm so glad I did. Reception is ace, value for money even better. Still on my first £5 credit - and no, I'm not a recluse. I just don't live my life glued to a mobile phone!!!
Would recomment this deal highly
#32
how does one get thier number transfered to asda then? im on 3
#33
Hot deal, as it has been for months. I got this a few months back, excellent deal for me. Switch from Virgin keeping my old number was swift and problem free.

Mind, I am a person who grew up managing to survive without a mobile phone and only have a very low usage - I don't constantly need to blather on on a mobile telling people I'm walking down the road to the pub etc .....
#34
I transferred at the end of my contract period, altho I it took 3 angry phone calls from me before i managed to prise the PAC (or is it MAC - never can remember!!) code out of them!!!!!

My mum has an awful credit record but vodafone let her have 2 simultaneous 12 month contracts. The credit checks aren't that harsh on things like simplicity as its only a 30 day contract.

I think its perfectly valid to compare a one month contract to PAYG - but as someone said earlier, spending less than £10 a month doesn't make you a hermit!

Being a hermit, I prefer to communicate by smoke-signal but this is a good second option.

Had the SIM for a few months with no issues. Transferring from O2 caused no problems and ASDA customer services were very helpful.

Highly recommended. Much better value than O2 PAYG.
#37
I don't like contracts as I want to go for any good deals when they appear.

8p per min to call all other mobiles is pretty good.

I bought the ASDA SIM and £5 of calls so the SIM was free.

I wish ASDA would have cheap handsets on display that can work with the ASDA SIM.

And when I was in the guy at the mobile desk didn't know that ASDA uses the Vodafone network and ASDA SIMS work in Vodafone mobiles.


I've never seen an ASDA mobile do they make them or does everyone use an unlocked or a Vodafone handset ?????


I have one mobile for incoming calls and give that out to everyone so never have to port my number.

I have a couple of others for making calls.

I also bought a cheap mobile in ASDA an Alcatel OT - S211 for £9 but it's on Orange and I haven't used it yet. It's OK for nine quid even has an FM radio.

Am scanning the internet for an unlock code ????? :)

Which is exactly why a 30 day contract is perfect. You get a tariff that blows away PAYG deals and no long-term contract.

I can see this deal is getting hot though so maybe more people than I thought have bad credit or rarely need to make a call whilst out and about.

Seacrest out.
#39
Yes you're right a 30 day contract is good.

Thanks for that.

A lot depends on how many calls you make a month some people don't make very many.
I hardly ever text anyone but some seem to do a lot.




I have mobile BB on my laptop from 02 and could get a 30 day contract or PAYG for £15 which is 30 days and both have a 3 Gb a month limit.
I just took the £15 top up and will refill after 30 days or before if I use up the 3 Gb.

I hate these 18 month or 24 month deals.

what about voicemail costs?
and is there a minimum topup requirement?
