My Samha Sim appears to still be working.

I haven't tried it for a few days, but am using it now.

I am using it on my iPad mini, pleasantly surprised that it's been fine for the last twenty minutes browsing, and checking emails.

Folk with lots of data left, maybe worth rechecking

Samba closing down. Thanks to all our customers.
Dear Customers,

You may have heard via the website, a friend or social media that Samba has had to take the difficult decision to close. We hope that you, our customers, have been happy with the value exchange received over the last two years. Below you will find answers to FAQs.

We would like to thank you for all your support. We know that a lot of you have really appreciated the service, and we have, in return, very much appreciated your loyalty to Samba and your support of our proposition to friends and family.

We have provided free mobile broadband, but also an alternative to interruptive video advertising models, and have, for the most part, with your participation, proven that people are quite happy to view video ads when they are in control of the experience and get something in return. We will be using this learning in future projects.

However, it is with sadness that today we have closed the service, and we understand and appreciate you will need to find alternatives to Samba. We have made suggestions of where to look at the bottom of the FAQs below.

To paraphrase the late Douglas Adams, so long and thanks for all the views..

I use mine at £15 per month for all calls, all texts, all mobile and home broadband. Maybe those people could consider getting rid of their home broadband and mobile contracts in place of this £15 One Plan deal. I did and saved over £50 per month.

Only if you get a good three signal inside.

Just put your mouse cursor over "Earn credit" and it will show you. You can also download the battery plugin and put the mouse over that too and it will tell you your credit. The battery plugin seems a bit pointless to me but they keep nagging you to install it so I did.

Those Ad Views and MB earned are just the total stats that all users have earnt I think.

Thanks, never knew that, just found out I have 4.8gb

That's a lot of credit you have that you didn't even know about :)

Probably about 2-3 days

13.9gb now for me, I don't use it much! I watch ads for nectar points too, you only get about 100 nectar points a week but it all adds up.

Or you could just get an Ovivo sim for £15 and get free 500mb each month http://ovivomobile.com/

ioscorpio, that looks like a really great deal for low usage users: 150 minutes, 200 texts and 500MB of data all for zero a month. In fact it's got better allowances than my £10.50 contract with T-mobile. You should do it as a separate deal.

No....Ads do not come out of your allowance.

Eh? The point is that you don't get 500MB straight away, as the headline suggests. You have to watch 125MB worth of ads before getting a one-off 375MB top-up. It is spelled out in the description, but the headline is misleading.
Skybird

Then watch ads until you have 125MB credit at which point Samba boost your account balance to 500MB.


So you're really only getting 375MB "for nothing".

For the casual user (i.e. needing data whilst out and about of maybe in a hotel) Samba is fantastic value. I've been using it for about a year now in my iPad 3 and have never paid for any data. I use either my laptop (there's a Chrome "extension" for Samba) or Safari on the iPad to play the ads when I'm watching TV so it almost silently builds up credit.

Another network I use is Ovivo (www.ovivomobile.com) where you get 500meg/month for nothing every month. If you need more, it's £5 for 1gig/month which is brilliant. I use the alternate between the free and paid data as and when I need more than the free 500meg - the beauty being you can just keep the SIM in a MiFi device and it's there when you need it.

It's a good deal, I've been using one for a long time now. I just overran my data limit to the tune of -400 MB, so I've got some ad watching to do. Might just buy another SIM for £1.

I wouldn't bother, my SIM stopped working. My account has disappeared. They won't answer my emails. Top it all off they keep sending me promo emails which I cannot stop as you need to login to stop them but their site says my email address is not registered. Useless company.

You must be the exception Bob, I find their customer service and service in general very good - have you checked your spam folder for email replies? Btw you can just click the unsubscribe link in their emails if you don't want to receive them anymore - there's no need to login. That's what I did.

I don't have a spam folder, never needed one.
Strange it, when I tried it before it asked me to login and then said the email address/account didn't exist.
Now saying successful.

The service works great for me - never had a shortage of ads to watch on my laptop but I can see there are fewer on my iPad. But as the guy above says this is due to Apple not supporting Flash player. I've been with them since last summer and have probably saved about £100 in that time so can't complain.

Find it useful for the occational times I connect the tablet away from Wifi source. Advantage over the prepaid sims is that the credit does not expire after 3 months if its not used.

When browsing just have a tab open playing the ads in the background. You don't even have to watch the ads that way as the browser can be minimised.

It's a good idea for students or those that need to save on data costs

Only if they can build up the credit on wifi first .
It doesn't quite work if it is the only way you have to access the internet.
The ads themselves use up the data you are earning.

"I have just noticed the counter on the top of Sambas homepage. ad views vs mb.

At the time of looking it said 3432822 ad views,9345085mb earned.

At 3.5mb per ad this equals 2669792mb missing. 22% of ads watched are not crediting according to the information shown.

This is a bad fail percentage. People are watching ads and there are many fails which samba are getting paid for but its customers
are not."

This is a quote from sambas own support forum.

some of the ads have an Get Samba Credit button (that does expire if you do not click on it) so at least they know they are getting the audio for some of them (most allow the sound to be muted thought, that option to mute should be disabled)

funny there billing system is as its still based on 17% vat when it emails you, and the £20 dongle is sent as me paying for an £25 one (paypal was £20) think the VAT is incorrect on that as well

not got me sims yet and i am nearly at 300MB (i only need about 10mb an month for the tasks i am wanting to use the sims for)

but i would prefer to use ovivomobile as i can use 2g only for the tasks i need to use(battery life is far better under 2g), as it uses vodaphone that seems to have best 2g coverage that compares to o2 as well
downside with ovivomobile is it would be £10 persim, and not sure how the free monthly stuff works (is there prerequests like making chargeable calls or topup after so many months)
downside with Sambamobile is it uses Three network (50% indoor coverage) and 3g only so worse battery life and no 2g data network to fall back onto (watching the ads is really none issue)

promo code still works at the time of posting (nice site this is)

Be careful with Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) like Samba, Lebara, etc as you wont be popular with your friends/colleagues on MNO networks like EE/Vodafone/O2 as theyll get hammered on call charges. Some will class you as a Roamer!
Fortunately there is zero possibility of my friends/colleagues phoning my dongle because much to their frustration and even after multiple requests, I flatly refuse to provide the dongle's number to them.

To be fair i have had contact now, and have bothered to get back to me. Was sent to wrong address. Which i can imagine i might have done for some reason
leeparsons
Ive paid them the money a few days ago, and nothink has come in the post. Slightly annoyed to tell the truth. They are crap at replying back to emails as well

Samba closing down. Thanks to all our customers.
Dear Customers,

You may have heard via the website, a friend or social media that Samba has had to take the difficult decision to close. We hope that you, our customers, have been happy with the value exchange received over the last two years. Below you will find answers to FAQs.

We would like to thank you for all your support. We know that a lot of you have really appreciated the service, and we have, in return, very much appreciated your loyalty to Samba and your support of our proposition to friends and family.

We have provided free mobile broadband, but also an alternative to interruptive video advertising models, and have, for the most part, with your participation, proven that people are quite happy to view video ads when they are in control of the experience and get something in return. We will be using this learning in future projects.

However, it is with sadness that today we have closed the service, and we understand and appreciate you will need to find alternatives to Samba. We have made suggestions of where to look at the bottom of the FAQs below.

To paraphrase the late Douglas Adams, so long and thanks for all the views..

i have one its bril. As to how long this company will last who knows

Ordered. Thanks for sharing.

Not worth the hassle IMO. Each advert gets you only a few MB, plus around 50% of the adverts don't load ("no longer available") so you have to do double the amount of clicking.

Took me around half an hour to earn 100MB. Fine for when you're unexpectedly away from WiFi but when it's gone I'll just pay to top up.
pinkcalculator
I've used samba for quite a few months I watch all the adds on offer and have clicked up quite a few G's of data for when I won't be in a wifi area. Certainly worth the money in my view.

Even if you don't watch the adverts that ad wall is still a great way to boost brand recognition. I can only assume that if they're not making money from this business model it's because they're being undervalued by the firms that use them. Who can't name at least 9 of the brands from that page off the top of their head?
exactly, this is the same subliminal effect as a billboard on a wall or roadside, no one has to look at them but they work. Just clicking on the advertiser's icon is already the same as glancing a billboard and plus an acknowledgement.

Yes I have the same problem. I just run one while surfing then come back to it to start another. It still plays and credits the account. If they activate a "Claim Credit" for 30 seconds after the ad is finished I would be stuffed!

They've really clamped down now.

Not able to start adverts in multiple tabs. :(
Magnets
Adverts have started to dry up over the last few days, <30-50MB/day now.
They seem to have just added new adverts today (Nike, Trainline etc) but can only be viewed once.

... with so many phone contracts including data and with so many of them able to be tethered

Impression I had was that few low cost contracts include tethering. VM seems to allow it, Three permits it only on their One Plan (starting at 25 quid a month), and perhaps iPhone users get it (again on a 25+/month contract).

i just ordered the full 3 lot of sims from sambamobile as long as there is coverage should be intresting
i also got one of these as well -vivomobile http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ovivo-mobile-hundred-mins-hundred-text-300mb-mobile-internet-plus-free-ovivo-ovivo-1389243 as i did not really get it completely when i first read it (free sim small fata text and calls


orange always allow tethering on contract (so you can Rack up an Stupid bill with there silly low data limits), PAYG orange i guess you can't
T-mobile say you can't tether but they never enforce the rule (do not need to really with 500mb High speed limit {2g speeds for the renaming month)+ the constant traffic shaping as well)
Three is really unlimited data Up To An Point as they started to traffic manage users who abuse the unlimited data to much (constant torrenting or overkill constant downloading) the trigger depends on how much Load is the the Mast before the heavy users get shaped
coalfield
most mobile providers dont allow tethering from a smart phone. The only one I know you can this is three. Deffo cannot with T-mobile and orange!

I saw a post a few days ago where you could get this for £2.50 but it was removed as spam as it was a referral. Quite frankly I don't care if it was a referral it was cheaper - does anyone have a referral link I can use? Cheers!

Just ordered one of these. If I built up say 1GB of data, how long would it last through general internet browsing?


Honestly depends on what you look at, you can't really average it.

Use Opera in turbo mode for stretching out your data usage, it compresses websites just like the Opera mobile browser.
Nookster
Been using this on an old o2 E160 for a while now, good mobile backup, or if EE coverage is crap and three is decent. Easy to build up a few gig for nothing.

Not as many ads post Olympics, but still enough to keep a healthy reserve, fair trade for a few minutes of Command/Control clicking and hitting mute.

£5 now but use MSE2 to get £2 off, going to give it a try now that the "three" data sims are creeping up in price
