a cod or a hake. :) Operated by CPW but you have a choice of three (not the network) options with the pay monthly only plans and you need to read their toc, especially with out of plan charges which are quite expensive.

If you go for the shockproof one you can set a £5 cap minimum, if you do use the 1.5 GB you can then only use a further 50 MB and that costs you the £5. My son received the 100% text you and stopped using the internet get but still ended up using the £5 cap so essentially costing £10 a month. I appreciate that is my sons fault but trying to highlight you can use the £5 cap without even knowing it.

cheaper
I have the same problem with caps with my family but with plusnet I have reduced it to £2 and I prefer it to be zero.
The out of plan charges are expensive and that works out at 10p per MB. The good thing about this network is that it allows you to add-on (which other network do not seems to offer) and maybe your son could consider. Accordiung to iD website, the add-ons for data
100MB£1.50
250MB£3.00
500MB£5.00
1GB£7.00
The add-ons last for a full 30 days and not the end date of the plan it seems

Quidco is giving £5 on this deal so first month free? https://www.quidco.com/id-mobile/

It's iD mobile and months are calendar months. If you take a contract now, your first fiver will give you the rest of this month instead of whole month so be careful of that when it comes to cancelling.

Customer service is also trash.

I'm voting every iD mobile deal down. Freedompop despite it's drawbacks is a much better service.

Virgin's £7.50 a month 20gb data 4G, 5000 minutes, and unlimited texts was the best deal around!

Actually, I've been with ID, for almost 2 years now, there customer service is no better or worse than any other top providers, the only time I needed to call them (because their app is the best I've ever used for a network) was to change from one deal to another. The only problem I found was that when you do want to switch deal and keep your number, you need to switch to another network and back again, which is a pain, but not the end of the world.

Reception has been as good as or better than the Mrs O2 (when we went to Wales).
It does say no tethering, but I have and never been charged extra. Recently been abroad in India, never got charged for receiving SMS messages.

I'm with id on 1gb for £5 and have no real problems. I use my data manager to watch how much i use and have never gone over. I might try and change to this deal though.

Only downsidei have is that my deal is technically 500mb + a bonus 500mb (so not even 1gb). When i use up the first 500 i get a text saying I've used 100% of my data and will be charged £10 per 100mb (I'm capped at £5 extra) but I've never been charged the extra money. I doubt think their warning system takes account of bonus data .

I do recommend though. Cheap and uses 3. I was on 3 to begin with anyway so great coverage.

I agree with you on that one. I have the same issue with my sons £5 sim. I'm always paying £10 a month. I made the mistake of letting him have the iD app on his phone and he purchased more data so it cost me £17 one month. So he doesn't have access to the app now. However I know that if I did the £10 sim he'd still use the £5 shockproof and I'd be paying £15 a month.

Just changed to a 4g plan with virgin sim only. 1500 mins 1gb data (doubled to 2gb for free) unlimited texts and unlimited virgin to virgin. Only £4 a month.
Just needed them to send me new 4g sim card.
Was paying £5 for 100 mins 500mb data and the unlimited texts/ virgin to virgin.

'I'm voting every iD mobile deal down' - what a very stupid and unhelpful response.

How did you get this £4 deal? Did you phone retentions / ask for PAC ? I'm currently on Virgin 3G 1GB data 200mins 1500 texts £6.09 per month - so your deal is much better

Found their CS pretty decent. Went through with Twitter talking to a few CS agents. Had to cancel my contract as I took it out for my ex when we were dating.

Was advised to ring them up. Took no more than 10 minutes to get a disconnect date, and further information. 28th of April is my cancel date.
Very friendly agent on the phone.

Didn't bar the SIM at the time as my ex was still talking to me. But few days after I decided to get it barred, asked them via Twitter and they were happy to bar it for me without having to ring them up again.

Just had a look online. Looks like a purely VOIP service using their app, a big drawback.

Decent network speeds, alright coverage in my area. Cheap costs, manageable app is pretty clear.

Only issue is, we were given 500mb x2 instead of 1gb. So we would get a 100% usage text at 500mb which meant we has used 50% of our data.
#29
I had this for my previous au pair. I agree with jeves, if you use a lot of data then you could very well end up paying £10 per month.

I got a plusnet sim for my current au pair. It is only 1gb of data but you get a warning text at 80% usage and can set the cap to £2 ie a maximum liability of £7/month instead of £10.

Ha found the Freedompop shill. Fpop should be considered a data only sim as the calling/sms is a complete joke, as such comparing the full service iD sim to data only could only be done by a) a **** or b) a shill. I've given you the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Was with fpop for half a year until enough **** built up to the point they were just a liabilty to have around even for their 200mb free service. Had the auto top-up turned off and they still charged me a few top ups. Send them a complaint about it and heard nothing back for a few days so i got my bank to refund those payments. A week later fpop emails me saying they'll refund the top-ups?? After switching to the free service for a few months they decided to randomly change my number and bam charged me another 5 pounds activation fee? I guess they don't want people settling into using the free service for too long so they pull tricks like this.

Banks should start releasing data on which phone services get the most charge backs, would be a nice metric to warn which companies to keep clear of.

Or if he goes over the limit, it comes out of his pocket money/he gets a part time job or chores. You'll find he's suddenly more responsible.

What a load of tosh!

This is not as good as the amazing Three deal, which is £9 per month, but possible £50 cashback from quidco, making under £5 per month.
Includes unlimited calls and SMS plus 4gb data.
Only things missing are "feel at home" and tethering allowance.

I switched a few months ago. No issues has such there than my number didn't carry over. Turns out it was an iPhone setting issue rather than ID but they helped me work through the settings. Great app to use for bills and usage so just switch if the deal is right for you as no better or worse than any other mobile provider and better value than most. Heat :)
