From today, giffgaff is introducing the only truly unlimited offerings in the UK mobile market from unlimited texts, voice calls to mobile Internet. Say goodbye to the fair use policy!

The 'goodybags' start at £5 for unlimited texts, rising to £35 for calls, texts and Internet. A £10 goodybag offers 100 minutes of voice calls, unlimited texts and Internet.

The network has also launched an all-new website giving access to more than just tariff information. The site includes access to community forums and discussion boards. The new site also marks the moment the network comes out of the beta stage and works towards a full scale launch later in 2010.

The giffgaff network uses the O2 network, and was originally launched in November 2009. It is a community run network that has no call centres and does not spend large sums of money on advertising. Simple pricing is a priority and customers are invited to help with pricing strategy and branding in return for free calls, text and web browsing.

To join the network, free SIM cards can be ordered online. Users also enjoy free calls to other giffgaff subscribers as long as the account is topped up in any three month period.

Don't think anyone can compete with the £10 a month 100 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited internet. And no fair usage policy is incredible.

Looks like an exciting concept. I hope it takes off and can keep these prices.
#2
Hot: £5 and £10 deals

Cold: £15 - can be beaten with haggling networks, just simply tell your network you are going to leave. Request the PAC code and sooner or later they ring you and offer you a deal you cannot refuse.

and....

Freezing!!! -- £35 pm?? How can you justify the jump up in the difference in price £15-£35 = £20 coming from

tesco has this unlimited fing for 30£pm

I think this is really good and the network has proven to be reliable too. I think its good as a top up package and would use had i not become a VIG (very important giffgaffer) for hiring a tool and doing advertising for them. They gave me a sim with free calls and texts and internet for a yr :)
#6
Dont think its a monthly thing....more like a 'bolt on' by the look of it.....gives freedom of a PAYG whilst getting benefit of the minutes and packages
#7
will this work in a mini dell laptop that has the slot for vodophone simcard ?

People do realise unlimited data from Tesco is not unlimited don't they? If you want to torrent or stream audio/video then you'll soon come a cropper and build up giant data bills.

Only if it's been unlocked. Test a sim from a different network in it and see it works.

This deal is not a contract, it's pay as you go. That extra £20 is unlimited calls on top of unlimited internet and unlimited texts.

I don't think "haggling" counts as a deal available for everyone.

This SIM deal is the best I've seen, I'm on the point of going for it. If you or anyone thinks there is better then I would like to know about it before I commit. I can't find better, please help!

i like tesco sim only deals better but still good price for £10 deal

i think £15pm for 500min unlt text and data is better from tesco



I can't find an equivalent deal at Tesco. This is PAYG and they do unlimited internet and texts + 100 minutedsfor £10, and no contract to be.

Tesco PAYG do a 7 day internet pass for £2, that like paying an extra £8 per month. This deal kills tesco stone dead.

No data on the £10 deal, you need to pay £15 to get data. So still not as good as this.

Also, with this deal if I call another phone with a sim from the same GiffGaff people, it's free. So if both me and my wife sign up we get to call each other without it costing a penny.

I can't believe this is only 81 degrees as I write this. There is nothing out there anywhere near as good.

Boris is launching a similar service soon called wiff waff
#19
is the 100 mins to other networks though as it doesnt seem to say and has prices to call other networks so i have doubts
banned#20
i dont understand it to be honest.

the free texts are only to giffgaff mobiles yes? so the goody bag is in effect giffgaff only?
#21
unlimited is giffgaff to giffgaff .......... to any other network, they charge! better cross network tarrif's with other mobile operators out there.

It's like they've gone back to the late 90s/early 2000s where contracts with inclusive minutes and text were same network only!
#23
does it actually say anywhere that the goodybags are only giffgaff to giffgaff?
[mod]#24
guv
I dont get this!

Every tarrif has unlimited texts...... but in the price list, it shows texts are 4p each! How does that work? Is that what your charged after youve used up your unlimited allowance?


that what im a bit confused about - free internet etc but ends 24th may ?

yes, price page.

yes, price page.


where?
i think the calls and texts in the goodybags are to any network

this from their site:
How do giffgaff-to-giffgaff calls and texts work with goodybags?
giffgaff to giffgaff will always be free if you have topped up in the last free month.
The goodybags on the other hand will apply to all OFF- NET calls made within the UK

It's fairly simple: You get free giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts regardless (there is some top-up requirement - £10 every three months or something like that). If you want to call or text non-giffgaffers you have two options:

1) Use their PAYG rate (something like 8p minute for phone, 4p per text)
2) Pay for a goodie bag which includes a certain number of free minutes/texts to non-giffgaff networks. Once your minutes/texts run out on the goodie bag it reverts to the PAYG prices in 1)

As for the data it is free until May 25th for everyone. After that there is a PAYG tarriff (which I can't recall off the top of my head) or you can use goodie bags starting at 10ppm which include unlimited data (the 5 quid one doesn't include data).

Their call and text rates to overseas are also pretty competitive, which is why I'll probably switch to them.

It's all here: http://giffgaff.com/index/pricing

And there is no contract

Hope that clarifies things

i am now pretty sure that those prices are for when u have no "goodybag" and the goodybags are to any network.

see: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Help-Ask-the-community-got-stuck/Goodybags/m-p/12518/highlight/true#M5793
#32
ordered a sim looks good, after reading some community pages i think the data charging is going to be for those only no buying a goodybag with inclusive data.
#33
Jeez people are making this more complicated than it is.

Fantastic Deal - However, unless they plan to get the Iphone i'm stuffed! :lol:
#34
Looks good but I like this;

http://www.tesco.com/mobilenetwork/twocolumn.aspx?page=107

Pay Monthly sim only for £30;

Unlimited calls, texts, web & data: fair use policy applies. Monthly data allowance 500Mb. Unlimited and flat rate calls and texts are to 01, 02, 03 and UK mobiles only, chargeable calls/text to these numbers are 20p per minute. Minimum contract term applies. SIM Only: rolling contract.
I rang Tesco and they told me £500 allowance max each month.
30 day rolling contract.
#35
Is there a "fair use policy" with the data on this?

What happens if I try to download say 100GB / month?

It does state 500mb is included, it looks like they then charge, that's my next question to them.
#37
This is a hot hot deal, thanks op, H & R added!!! If only o2 would offer me this deal, gonna cancel with them I think.

With a Goody Bag all data is unlimited and when they say unlimited they mean unlimited. It's on front page as clear as a pike-staff.

The gotcha is no tethering or PC use so I can't think of any heavy data use on a mobile that would make them regret this claim.

Is there a torrent client for Android yet? :)

That is HOT then, I don't need data so the Tesco deal is perfect for me.

How can they possibly call it 'unlimited', then state the caps in the same sentence?! Just stating a 'fair use policy applies' doesn't give them the right to use the word unlimited.

This isn't having a go at just this bit of text though, I believe they all use the same 'unlimited' term then place a limit a bit further down the T's and C's.
