good deal but agree with the above giffgaff is great and giffgaff and tesco both use the o2 network
#3
Do they give you a micro sim?
#4
I would be quite happy to get this with 500mins + 200txt + 500mb a month - that's my ideal mix of talk/text/data for my use.... but they never give enough enough talk time and give way too much text.

There is an iPhone option on the site (check rotating ad) so yes.

Yep I got this a few months back with the 500 mins, ul texts and ul internet. Very good service so far from Tesco. Can't fault them. What I don't like about GG is that they can change the deal from month to month so you're not guaranteed of the deal you signed up for on Day 1 will remain the same. With Tesco you can as what you signed up for doesn't change for as long as you remain with them.

Cold, I pay the same for 500 minutes, unlimited texts and Internet.

Voted hot. Yes there may be other deals around like GiffGaff, but this should also be up there. People like to be kept aware of the deals around.
#14
gd deal but i have 600 mins unlimited texts unlimited internet on a 30 day rolling tesco contract but heat anyway
#15
can't wait to leave my expensive vodafone contract n get one of these much cheaper deals. 4 months n counting...

Another vote for GiffGaff.

Wouldn't touch Tesco Mobile or GiffGaff as they both rely on O2's pants network for 3G coverage. It's fine if you're in a city, but us country folk don't get a look in.

Wish I could get one of these 500 mins deal, as posted above i'm about 400-450mins so Voda told me, Texts dont matter, but 500MB would be great...

Anyone sees a deal like this LMK :)

Be sure to check coverage on O2 website for Tesco/Giffgaff, Mobile Internet coverage seems extremely poor in the south east for me at least, unless you're directly in the center of some towns. It does prevent me risking trying out GG, as I get a lot of 3G coverage on T-mobile from SE to london on train trips.

Having just checked out GG i now realise how much it is better than what I have. I pay Tesco £15 p/m for 750 mins, 500 MB and unlimited texts. Which I still think is great. As soon as enough of my friends change to GG we'll all be laughing at the savings we'll be making. Free 080 and 0500 calls with GG, that alone is a great reason to get it whoo hoo for GG!!!!!

Don't forget 0800 Buster. Call 0800 / 0500 calls via them and it comes out of your monthly contract minutes anyway so almost effectively free no matter what network you're with.

No tethering and not to be used in devices like iPads that are not phones
That's what I've seen so far on site about that, hope that helps

500 mins for £15 isn't bad

I tested out GiffGaff last week and the data connection was terrible, couldnt connect half the times and slow speeds, I know a lot of users are having issues so beware if data is important check their forums for the latest updates other than that they are good.

Not true for me. I live in a small town where mobile reception is poor and o2 is about the only one where I receive connection in most areas of the town. Vodafone is the worst for me. I think with all of these - you have to take them up on their 7 day (or whatever they have) cooling off period and check it out for yourself. The reason I changed over to Vodafone was that everyone on here was saying it was the best network with the best connection - not for me.

I'm afraid that's true for me too. I'm beginning to wish I'd never left Vodafone, but it all comes down to coverage in your area, they're all good deals if you get a good signal but I use an app for monitoring my home CCTV which worked perfectly on Vodafone but won't work on Giffgaff. I might try Tescos but I think the fault is with O2's network. I would be more than happy to stay with Giffgaff if it wasn't for this.
#35
Good deal

Without wanting to change a tesco thread into a giffgaff one, with giffgaff after a 30 day rolling period, does the initial credit still remain valid to use until finished, thus keeping a number live? (guess same question is applicable to any networks 30 day rolling contract offer)

love the way people say they are getting ripped off on their existing contract and cannot wait for it to end, then why be so quick to sign up to 12,18 or 24 months in the first place? was it so you could grab yourself the latest must have handset...end of the day these are sim only deals, I personally still think many are better off paying an extra 10-15 quid a month and bagging a decent handset than buying seperately, each to their own but for the last 4 years I have stuck with a 25 quid a month contract 500min ul txt and 1gb data and in that time had 3 new handsets with a combined value new of nearly a grand...work it out for yourselves i have paid 200 quid for 4 years worth of calls txt and data. less than 5 quid a month and no switching networks hassle. In my experience used daily modern smartphones dont last much longer than 2 years before battery or screen problems persist.

@moonpie Im on o2 and my data is fantastic constant solid fast connection, I personally think o2 may throttle data on Tesco and GiffGaff, considering both are resellers and undercut nearly all of o2 deals!

Totally valid, but sometimes the need for a sim on a short term basis is very useful. Plus a good deal 12, 18, 24 months ago very quickly can become a not so good deal. Im on contract, £10 a month with Orange gives me 500mins, 500 texts and 500MB data

And for us with kids, much rather get them a rolling sim deal like this then any contract

Everyones circumstances are different and yes these sim only deals do have their place i was just giving some food for thought, I have seen people take these deals then go out and buy a 400-500 quid phone which can work out far more expensive over a 18/24 month period.

I don't know if they've got around to fixing it yet, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that some Sky and Orange Broadband customers have been unable to access their Tesco pay monthly mobile accounts: it only affects users with a 2.xxx.xxx.xxx IP address trying to access https://paymonthly.tescomobile.com/orderentry/MyAccountLogIn.do The paygo site is fine.
