Had a phone call yesterday from a T-Mobile rep, he stated that they currently have an offer open for existing customers as follows.
Free USB Dongle,
Unlimited downloads I asked if they had a fair usage policy or any limits imposed on downloads and was told no definitely not.
£10 a month for existing customers.

I forgot to ask how long you had to run this for Doh but suspect you will be tied down to an 18 month contract to get this price.

This offer is not on the website or rather it is at £15 I believe, you have to phone 150 to get it at this price.

I asked the guy to phone back next week to discuss as my contract is up for renewal and I want to see what they offer me before I decide to stay with them or not for another year.

Took out, via E2Save, the 3Gb, £15 a month offer recently.

Deal was 12 months free on a 24 month contract (or 24 months half price - same difference) - made it £7.50 a month.

Adding back my £25 Quidco as well, knocked another £1.04 a month off, meaning the cost is about £6.46 a month for 3GB.

I know prices may drop over time / allowances increase and 2 years is a long period for some, but at less than £6.50 a month I diidn't mind the tie-in. Took the view that I would look at as 12 month contract at £12.92 a month for 3GB, followed by a 12 month free period - looking that way, even the £12.92 a month stacks up ok against PAYG etc if you are going to make use of the service.

It is the unlimited aspect of this deal that appeals to me, I know if I had a deal limited to 3GB there would be months when I would require more.

Being able to just use it whenever and for as much as I wanted would provide a lack of worry factor that I believe would be worth the contract.

If next week they offer me a good phone for signing for another year, I will be taking them up on this offer.

Not sure I believe this is unlimited (or at least marketed as such with a FUP attached) - will do a little research...
#4
I had a phone call from them about a month ago and offered the same deal, I had to refuse as I have sky broad band and a wireless router. They even offered for £25/month + a free laptop I think. Not a bad dead if your going to us it, but like many peaople if you have sky its better to go for full phone, internet and sky package and use there free wireless router
#5
I specifically asked if there was a fair usage policy because I found it difficult to believe myself, the drone on the phone was quite adament that it was totally unlimited and no FUP.
#6
They don't actually offer an unlimited service on their website, fwiw.

I'm not saying your lying or anything - but they have marketed their service as "Unlimited" with a hidden FUP (which is a limit - WTF Offcom) and it wouldn't surprise me if the drones on the phones were told it was totally unlimited in every way.

I agree for many mobile broadband is just an extra service that is not exactly essential.

If you travel a lot arounf the UK however it looks a bit more like a requirement than a luxury and if like some people you live too far from an exchange to get sensible broadband speeds then this could be sensible alternative.

Presumably an "unlimited download" deal doesn't stop them throttling your bandwidth to almost nothing once you've gone over a certain amount.

Yup deals on the website clearly state FUP and also state upto 4.5 Mbps while drone on phone "maybe DOPe for short?" stated no FUP and upto 7Mbps.

Guess I will have to wait for my callback next week to quizz him further and get him to send me his promises in writing.

The 3GB is a limit, but there is no charge for going over unlike on other providers (persistant offenders may have a "discussion" and a request to curb / change price plan).

That is why it is important get the FUP issue cleared up, Unlimited with no FUP means unlimited.

But if the deal includes a FUP then they can basically do whatever they want to your connection once you go over the FUP limit.

The T-mobile rep who called me with this offer also conceeded that your mobile can be plugged into your laptop to be used as a modem.
So check whether your phone can be used as a modem before spending on this.

When i enquired with t-mobile about this i was told that there was no "Browsing" limit (So thats the unlimited bit),

Only "Downloads" will add up to your Allowance, as long as you were just browsing the internet it was "unlimited".

Hope this clears a few points up!.

Regards to all Billyhl.

You would have to do a fair bit of plain browsing to use up 3gb!

Me and me OH both have T-Mobile dongles. He went 1 or 2Gb over one month using iPlayer and just got a letter saying to reduce useage. i think if you then keep going over they would throttle your connection. It is def not unlimited.

Seeing as whenever you browse a site you download the content, then no...

EDIT - To give you an idea, you have just downloaded my Jakg.com avatar - it'll go in your temp files and get deleted eventually but thats 10-20KB from your download allowance per month.

I haven't played with this for a while but...

If it has Bluetooth you should be able to just use a bluetooth dongle to connect to your mobile using the bluetooth modem settings. Detailed instructions though would probably require you to check your phones manual.

From http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/mobile-broadband/

Mobile Broadband Plus

£10/month** for first 3 months (24 months)
3GB fair use amount
WiFi HotSpot access
FREE USB modem stick

£15/month (18 months)
3GB fair use amount
WiFi HotSpot access
FREE USB modem stick

£30/month (24 months)
5GB fair use amount
WiFi HotSpot access
FREE USB modem stick
Internet calling services like Skype

They all mention a fair usage policy and if they were uncapped why have 3GB and 5GB deals!

It all depends on what the handset supports. Some have an easy ability to act as a modem, others don't.

Windows Mobile devices are easy to hook up and so are the Nokia N series I think.

A simpler option might be to buy the Voda PAYG USB Dongle, £29 after £10 quidco and loaded with 1Gb data. Then just pop your SIM in to the dongle. However check first as I "think" Voda dongles only work with PAYG sims. Maybe someone else can clarify that.
