O2 relaunched all their tariffs yesterday dropping "unlimited data", but what has replaced it looks pretty good:

The O2 simplicity sim for smart phones now offers 300 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB data and unlimited wifi (this is a new addition for the smartphone sim) for £15 per month on a 12 month contract. Add in the current offer of topcashback of £100 on tariffs on £15 or more and this works out to just £6.66 per month over the year! The iphone sim is the same price.

Don't want data? Then 300 mins + unlimited texts + unlimited o2 calls or landline calls is £10 per month, but with £50 cashback works out to just £5.83 per month over the year!

Have a blackberry? Then there's a tariff for you that also offers 300 mins + unlimited texts + unlimited blackberry data + unlimited wifi for £10 per month, after £50 cashback = £5.83 per month.

(I've modified the title to reflect that the data on the mentioned smart phone tariff is 500MB - 1GB only applies to a far more expensive tariff, which O2 confusingly/misleading listed as "up to 1GB" above all the tariffs)

Am I right in thinking on the iPhone one you don't get the cashback?
#2
Doubt if there's any difference between the sims...I'm running my iphone on my old contract £12/month sim
I'm also always dubious about sim cashbacks...still waiting for one from Voda
#3
Topcashback states for the £100 on £15+ tariffs: "This includes smartphone, iPhone and BlackBerry specific sim only tariffs. "

I got my £100 cashback a year ago for taking the £20 smartphone sim then, was just looking on the off-chance as its time for a new one to see me through another year and found this deal. My mum and sister also got their cashback last year, so I can confirm these deals do pay up. :)

Sam cashback with Quidco

Just a small point that annoys me: o2 offering "free wifi" from their sims is a bit of a joke, if you have Wifi in your home you're already paying for it.
#6
Hows the top cashback work?

My o2 contract is up next week and was looking to go to Tesco mobile. If this works out as cheap then id do this.

When do you get the cash back?
#7
The free wifi is access to btopenzone and the cloud.
#8
The free wi-fi is use of "the cloud" - i.e. O2 wifi hotspots across the country. They're not talking about using your own wifi network.
#9
Can I port my existing pay monthly o2 number on this SIM?
#10
It's actually 600 mins for £15 on a years contract.

It's 300 mins on the 30 day contract and no Quidco. Or at least that is how I read it here:

I'd like to know the answer to that too. I suspect not, as it would enable existing customers to get the Quidco.
#11
Can anyone advise on how I might go about moving from an o2 contract (due up this month) to this and take advantage of the cashback whilst keeping my number?
#12
for the blackberry bolt on, what is the fair usage policy??
#13
the only way you'd be able to port the number over is to port it to another operators PAYG and then back again. AFAIK operators don't transfer numbers to new accounts on the same network, this is deffo the case for Orange, probably the same for the others.

Not if you want data for an iPhone tariff, that's £20 for the 600 mins/12 month deal.

The tariff of the beast?
#16
Might be worth bearing in mind that "blackberry data" works fine on normal phones too, if you don't need free o2 calls.
#17
There's also a cashback promotion with Vodafone at the moment where they're also offering around £90 - £120

just ordered mine.
what a great deal.
blows all the other sim only deals out the water.

I think you have the data limit wrong there!!

On the £15 Smartphone / iPhone / Blackberry Tariff the data is only 500MB

unlimited was classed as 200mb before so 500 mb should be more than enough

15 months left on my contract @ 20 a month with orange. Anyone know what my early termination fee from orange would be?

VAT discount alone is £52.50. If I can get slightly more, it will make this worth it. Anyone know what it'll be?

I asked them this before leaving the other day and was told yes. if i get my MAC code then ring up and ask them to move it to my new contract they can do it. think youll end up paying one month of both though. or finishing the last of the contract off if you know what i mean.

someone on MSE and here i think confirmed the same.

It would be a minimum of 15 x £20 i think. maybe taking off your 52.50 however they dont always do that.

read your t&c's :thumbsup:

it was 1GB they changed it but never updated their t&c's even then you would not be charged by them for going over just get a warning then another and another before they ripped the bolt on off.
#27
I have checked the site and couldn't see any offers? :-(
How do you get the cashback?
#28
Does anyone know what the difference is between the plan that's just for smart phones and the one that's just for the iPhone? The smart phone data allowance is 500 MB more so looks tempting, but...
#29
this sounds good - thanks!

Hahaha - brilliant post!!!!!

How does the cashback on these simplicity deals work? Do you get paid straight after signing up?

Just doing the sums, this could be quite a nice contract for the new iPhone:

Say you went for this deal and bought the iPhone 4 16GB from Tesco on Pay & Go, thats an initial cost of £379 (£479 minus £100 cash back) and a monthly cost of £15. Over 12 months this would be £559 in total.

The current cheapest is the Tesco Mobile Pay Monthly deal, £349 for the iPhone + £20pm, which is £589 over 12 months, and it has less minutes.

well I got 2 simplicitys about 3 weeks ago £50 cash back with unlimited (20gb but no real limit as clarified by an o2 adviser) so I don't no where your quoting 200mb from! :whistling:

read your t&c's :thumbsup:


Cheers. I have read it and I get VAT + a variable discount (depending on other factors). However, since its not 1GB of data, I don't think its gonna be worth it. I currently get 600mins unlim texts and 500MB of data.

If you buy the payg phone from Tesco, it will be locked to Tesco so I doubt this O2 simplicity sim will work in it.

Tesco use the O2 network ,so it might work? Im not sure.

No thats not correct, Tesco runs of the O2 network so it will also accept O2 SIMs.
#37
I think this is only 1GB data until September 30th, from 1st October it will go down to 500MB.

Quidco didn't pay our son the £200 cashback with it's last 24 hour O2 offer, so be careful out there.:?

hmmm I keep hearing different things about this. Tesco seem to be saying "no" but people who have bought an iPhone from Tesco are claiming that 02 sim's work so I'm not really sure.
