2000 minutes, not the 1000 that has been previously posted

Great for the kids, can't see many using over this amount of minutes

30 Day rolling contract, so you can cancel anytime.

word of warning, I took one of the sims out and it arrived to late to activate before my current supplier new month came started, delayed in the post, no fault of theirs. However, as it was delayed I tried to speak to them, 40 minutes on hold to be told on webchat to speak to someone to be told I needed the sim to cancel but to chat back when it arrived and they could cancel no problem. when it did arrive, 30 minutes on webchat to be told you can only do it over the phone, then 45 minutes on hold to customer service to be told, needed to put me through to another department, again 45 minutes on hold. The guy then offered me credit for the month I would have paid with the other company but by then I was all held out. Difference between plusnet and life as it used to be is amazing, you got through to them no issues at all with Life.

Have to agree there that the customer service with Life was miles better, however the Webchat with Plusnet seems quite responsive.

We've got three completely separate mobile accounts with them and have had no problems whatsoever, new sims arrive next day and CS have been quick and efficient. Jump on chat if lines are busy and if it's a must speak in person issue ask them to call you.
#5
customer service are indeed rubbish. Needed 3 different sims just to change plan. And other number plan being changed is heading that way too.

Shame, as they have some good deals, and are on ee.

hope this is still going in March when my 12 month EE deal is up !

Just started the £5 pm Sim yesterday calls, Text works fine but no data, live chat with plusnet didn't help even after resetting APN settings, now sending me replacement Sim!
A few recent Plusnet forum threads stating the same problem on different phones:
https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/NO-DATA-no-access-to-APN-settings-on-iphone/td-p/1400224

https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/Re-No-data-connection/m-p/1399078#M1432

The last thread link stated their problem ended up being due to a faulty sim so if your replacement sim doesn't fix it, then the problem is elsewhere.

Can't see that in the near future tbh. If they do just find a better deal, as its only a 30 day contract

I can see that. I was enquiring about the 1gb £5 tariff mentioned. I found it anyway, it is on the Plusnet website

That was one of the great things about Life. They allowed existing customers to upgrade to new customer deals. I doubt it will be the same on Plusnet.
#22
I went for the unlimited mins texts and 4gb 4g data today! Spoke to retentions to get it tho. The only thing that scares me with PLUSNET IS the RPI plans go up every year in cost. LIFE DIDN'T DO THIS

Which network does the sim use? Voda, o2 etc?

same issue with me. I got my SIM yesterday. no data. I was told that because I initiated number porting, the issue could be due to that. now waiting for number porting to finish, to see the issue goes away.
#26
Just Wondering
Which network does the sim use? Voda, o2 etc?

EE. (EE and Plusnet are both owned by BT)
#27
Cold.

Appalling customer service since the BT Group moved them from being Life Mobile and run directly by EE to being a Plusnet branded product.

I'm still waiting for a port to complete that started on 21/12/2016, and I've been calling them regularly and been told utter bulls**t by them.

The moment the port completes I'm moving the number away from them.

EE... Plusnet are a BT Group company.
#29
Can existing Life customers now get 4G from Plusnet? If so does that involve getting a replacement SIM?
#30
does anyone know how you switch voicemail off on this network any help appreciated thanks
#31
Has anyone tried using their sim in ee locked handset? Wondering if it would work.
#32

Just to inform you, the customer service provided is still Life mobile. It is just Plusnet branded now.

I should add that the calls are routed to same support agents that dealt with life mobile before.

Can you share data with other devices via a WiFi hotspot? Giffgaff won't let me do that! This is cheaper and I'm minded to change.
#37
From looking at their site there are no additional charges to tether. So I would assume that is okay.
#38
For those who want to contact the mobile support team the contact details are as follows;
Call 500 from your Plusnet Mobile or 0800 079 1133 from any phone.. This will save you waiting for broadband and landline technical support and will route you through to the existing support for mobile.
