There is also a search, but no triples, you can find some with two pair, or containing 1234 or 4321 ... kicking myself... lost a triple 0 when I let it expire on an old sim
07942819056 - I'm not sure I see anything special about that number.

However I've just seen that you can just F5 (refresh) on the page once it displays the number and cycle through till you find one you like. Just done it 20odd times and nothing particularly special I saw.
Seems like a good idea with reasonable prices but no 'gold' numbers. Not even close.
where else can you get a gold number ?
Are you sure that Coms is owned by Ikea?

I'm sure that I read it somewhere, and after loading my sim card this morning my phone is currently displaying IKEA where it usually says Vodafone.

The tesco value tariff is pretty good, 8p per minute,4p per text , 0800 and 0845 numbers included, billing in seconds too so nasty rounding up to the next minute like some big networks

ikea mobile is cheaper than asda if you go to asda mobile phone charges page numbers 0845 0870 0844 asda charges between 30 to 40 pence a minute. ikea charges 12 a minute to these numbers.
I had 07 5500 12301 in mine, decided not to bother though :)
I went ahead and ordered one and got a cracking number: 07-ww-xx-yy-zz-x :)

Been using Ikea/Family mobile now for a few months. Good customer service, (3 calls all answered within 4 rings).


Makes a change from T-Mobile!

I'm waiting for my T-Mobile contract to expire before I start using my family mobile sim. T-Mobile routinely overcharge me by £40 ish and it takes for ever to get through to their helpline and then they have no authority to do anything. I hate T-Mobile and can't wait to get rid!

baldmonk: I've tried IE7 and Firefox 3.0.6, and the page isn't secure.
In each browser, if you right click the page background and then:
a. IE7: select properties, you can see "Connection: Not Encrypted "
b. Firefox: View Page Info, you can see "Connection Not Encrypted"

So - it's not encrypted. i don't know why you can see a padlock ...

I've just logged on after seeing this in Martins Weekly email. Got my free sim and they must have fixed the secure issue as the link now shows

https://www.familymobile.co.uk/freecredit

even if you go to the old link it forwards to the secure site.

I ordered one of these for my parents, but I'm not going up to theirs until tomorrow or I could repeat the process lol :)

Just keep looking, the site would only work properly when in IE8 in "compatability mode" basically IE7. So you might want to try that if you aren't using IE7/8 already.

I'm pretty sure entering the sim number into your family mobile account is what turns the sim into "Sim Error/Sim not registered etc" to IKEA or FAMILY MOBILE as your network.


Thanks a lot! I will wait for your experience.
I normally use firefox. I just tried IE7 and no difference.
ipcat;5029665
thanks. but still cannot find "activate sim" or "add sim" card wizard. Only 'manage servises'
and 'add family member' :(

at this stage, I don't need to insert the card into my phone, right? I actually did this and it was shown 'Sim Card Error'

Log into familymobile under my account, somewhere iirc is a "activate sim" or "add sim" card wizard, it's still an new site so some bugs about i think.

In that wizard will ask for the sim number etc, once added within 2hours your £5 credit will appear.

I had no idea Asda where sooooo cheap! Wish I wasn't on a contract now. I'm with T Mobile Flext, calls are 20p!!!!!!!

I vote this cold based on Asda's prices.
Was thinking about this a few days ago.

Get the memorable number, hope for the £20 [which makes this work out cheaper than ASDA] then port the memorable number over to an ASDA card for cheap PayG goodness.


Thing is, I'm thinking I prefer to have the O2 simplicity contract at a monthly £20...memorable number on this could be really useful in the long term.
To Mr. Scoob65: If you waited 10 days + 1 weeks + 4 weeks + 2 weeks then you managed to buy your SIM before they launched in the UK :)

NB. I bought a SIM a week after they launched. It's 6 weeks ago now. Good service in my area. Think it's T-Mobile's network. Called their Customer Care twice. Answered the phone within 30 sec's every time and were very helpful. I guess the tech is quite standard. I vote HOT.

Family mobile are a shambles! I ordered a sim 6 weeks ago but after 10 days no sim so i phoned up and cancelled and they said they would refund my £10. another week but no refund so called again and promised refund. After a month no refund but then a sim turns up in the post! I call them and they say return sim and i'll get a refund. 2 weeks after returning sim still no refund!

Stay away from these guys!!!


Got my 2 sims within 48 hours:oops: luck of the draw:whistling:

Wow that is cheap.
Even for GPRS per Mb is good, as you would normally pay £3/4 on other networks
The only thing stands out to me is them charging for a text balance request. But its only 6p.


Talk Mobile is only 50p per 10 Meg but calls are more expensive.

See below for rates for payg
