Sorry mate, did a search and it never came up, anyway it is now only 50p, was £2.48 when you posted so it is a new deal.

It's not a new deal but good reminder, some may have missed it.

It's near enough 1 fifth of the price of the other post, doesn't that make it a new deal?:?

It can also be ordered online which is an added bonus!

Looks like a new deal to me, at 50p. Good bit of poetry eh.:-D
#7
btw. I still think Family Mobile (Ikea) is the better option as they're currently doing a promotion where you get £20 for topping up £10, so it's like 4.5p a minute and 3p a text for the £10 topup

I replaced all the mobiles in the house (3 in total) with these sims. It has saved us a fortune my old one was 02 costing me about 30p a minute & 12p a text!

The sim goes straight into any Vodaphone without unlocking as they use the Vodaphone network.

You also get to pick your number on ikea. Try it out! :)

Asda also do free sim offers. Think it was buy £5 credit get simcard free when I bought one a few months ago.
#10
Paid £2.00 for it last week " sorry " wrong one ..world sim pack
#11
Bought one of these a few weeks ago - it's been well advertised, so I thought everyone knew about this deal....
Apparently not, so great post!

Certainly the cheapest PAYG tariff at the moment and ASDA mobile customer service was excellent. Transferring my old number was a doddle - just needed the PAC from my old supplier. It took a few days, but they told me that it would happen between 11am-4pm on the specified day and I haven't had a problem since.

The Ikea deal is good, but it only lasts until the 15th Dec and is limited to the first 10,000 customers......
#12
Asda sims are free when you top up more than 5 pounds which is very easy to do
#13
I got this free with £5 top up--heat added
#14
I got one - definitely worth the reminder.
#15
This sounds like a good deal to me, but I took the Family Mobile option. Which was listed here a few weeks ago http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/251181/20-airtime-for-10-and-9p-per-minute/. So far I've been impressed with my choice. There is the £10 bonus when you sign up. Also Family Mobile deal has itemised billing which Asda doesn't do the main reason for me chosing over the two. If that's any help to someone who wants to know what their calls cost. You Choose

For 500 minutes it works out at £40 - you can get a contract for half that price monthly and that's for talk time alone, not including text messages and a phone. Cold - sorry.

Edit: Just noticed it's PAYG, sorry for camparing it to a contract. Still way too expensive though.

500minutes is not worth a PAYG (worth if you don't use it much Ypnos...) but as far as I'm concerned I top up £10 every 2months with Fresh so this could maybe last 3! I'm actually gonna switch :-)
#18
Please can someone tell me if you have to top this up regularly? Virgin SIMS stay good without regular topup but it seems other providers cancel the SIM if you don't top up every three months or so.. ..I want to put one in the car in case of emergencies...
#19
ive been using this Asda Mobile package for about a year. Ive had no problems at all with it.

Im lucky if i put £10 every 2 months on my phone, although i rarely actually call anyone ( i get free calls at on my landline)

My girlfriends on it too, shes spends around £10 a month and she texts all the time.

what network does ASDA PAYG use?
#21
I saw this offer when it was last posted and looked into it.

What I don't like with so many PAYG is that any money you put on has an expiry date.
Orange was the only provider who keep your credit almost indefinitely.
To give an example if you top-up £10 on Jan 1st and keep the phone in the car for emergencies etc, I want to know how long my £10 will last with little/no calls?
Orange says that providing you make a call (say 10p) within 3 months, then the remaining £9.90 rolls over to April 1st.
With most providers it will all be snatched on March 1st or April 1st whether you make a call or not; because your top-up (ie your money) expires !

I read all the fine print on this SIM leaflet and even tried calling the Asda helpline dozens of times, at all times of day/evening but their phone was never answered. I'm normally a big fan of Asda, but what if they can't be bothered to answer their own helpline phones, what does that say?

Update: Well I did try to call again and this time I did manage to get through to a human. They have stated that "providing the phone is in continual use, then the credit will remain". When pushed using the above example of £10 credit, she stated that £9.90 would roll forward. Continual use appears to be within a 3 month period; so it would appear to be the same as Orange in keeping your credit; but this has a cheraper call rate. She said if you are transferring your unlocked mobile to Asda, then {obviously} use up all your credit with your original provider, the buy the £5 pack with the free SIM but make sure your FIRST top up goes on a voucher and not the swipe card. Hope this helps.

Great offer. i've been on orange for years so might change.

Are the rates pretty much fixed or will they up them significantly after a period of time

What network does ikea offer use? I think I would prefer ASDA/Vodafone its the best network I have ever used.

**Update IKEA Mobile use T-mobile...Vodafone is a lot better than T-Mobile where I live anyway so its a no brainier for me.**

I agree, Orange nicked my balance and locked my Sim.:x

Got this deal after moving from Virgin PAYG but after a few days realised this was still going to be expensive as Voicemail is 8p per minute as well!

So rang Virgin and (after a bit of gentle persuasion!) they put me on the Virgin Media offer SIM only £10 for 300 mins and 300 texts per month (even though I don't have Virgin Media!) which will work out much cheaper for me.

If you don't use your mobile much then this is a hot deal!

Orange have been the most lenient with me and my sims, they have stolen money and switched off sim's but nowhere near as many as the others
o2 have switched off more than 100 of my sims made even worse by the fact they had never been opened. They have switched off enough active sims and I estimate they have stolen over £100 from my payg sims "Rbstrds"

t-mobile or 121 as they were called switched off quite a few and stole lots of money and then tell me my sim card is hibernating.

It's a *****ing sim card not a hedgehog was always my reply to customer service guy in India.

Yes, it normally works that way.

But I don't think you'll be able to use vodafone in asda phones.

My daughter has just bought a new Sony V630i from Play on Vodaphone (£49.99 for a very good phone). ASDA sim card worked in it straight away.

Switched from Virgin Mobile to ASDA, taking her old number using the PAC code from Virgin and had no problems. ASDA is a cheap and very easy-to-understand network, and she can work out the costs of her calls no problem. She has spent a fair bit of time surfing the net on her new phone on ASDA and it only seems to costs a few pence for 10 minutes at a time, but I'm no expert on this aspect.

Our whole family are switching to ASDA now - very impressed and a much better signal via the Vodafone network than we use to get on Virgin.
#37
Just remember when Asda have suckered I mean convinced enough people to use their service they will put up price or change conditions to their advantage whilst leaving you feeling or under the impression it's for your benefit and your getting something better.

Thanks for the reply,I'd only want to put an asda sim in a vodafone fone it'll be cheaper than buying an asda handset

Not bad, although Tesco mobile might prove cheaper for some where you get £30 free credit when you top up with £15 ( Total £45 credit )

http://www.tesco.com/mobilenetwork/shop/?page=tariffinfo


Also, If your out to buy a new mobile, they seem slightly more expensive with Asda.


Free credit is only valid for one month.
