I noticed this in the paper at £15 /m yesterday so decided to see if my current network would match it. They wouldn't, so I phoned Vodafone (on 0808 0 408 408) for more information and was offered this as a new customer:

- Vodafone SIM @ £10 /m (discounted from £15 /m) (includes 600 x-net anytime minutes and unlimited text messages)
- 12 month contract, upgradable after 9 months
- £5 discount only applicable for 9 months, after which you can upgrade
- I was advised that a similar agreement could then be made
- Free delivery

Now i didn't have to negotiate, it was just offered to me. However, my neighbour did. She stated that one of her friends had been offered this deal earlier in the day, was put on hold, and was then offered the same deal.

---------------
If porting your number to Vodafone, this can only be done at the time of agreeing a new contract - online, over the phone or in store. Yes, you guessed it, i had to learn this the hard way...

hot from me

what number did u call? seem a very good deal!

I wonder what the cost are when you go over your 10 hours a month? You didn't mention web surfing as you probably don't use it. I think Vosafone doesn't charge EU roaming charges this summer, which is good (roaming charges are due when you are in another country and receive a call on your UK phone, in case someone wonders :). Works out 1.5p per minute inside your allowance, which is good.

Thanks for posting.

VERY VERY HOT!

Unfortunately, Vodafone stopped it's Summer roaming promotion. HKUD, I need your help - my gf is staying here, and I'm moving to Malta (EU) -- what's the best/cheapest way to stay in touch via text? The passport deal was amazing cos we just connected through Vodafone Family and I could receive calls for free; and we had several texts to spend on that.

Rep to the person who helps out the most...? :-)
#7
Similar question to the above, my girlfriend is moving to Spain for 9 months so could she use this deal and take it with her or would she have to get a sim card when she's in Spain?
#8
how much is the internet bolt on for vodafone?
suspended#9
is this 600 x-net?
#10
£5 a month until your contract end or £7.50 if you just want it for a month at a time/500Mb
#11
I called and tried to get the same offer, but was told its £10 per month for 24 months and when I mentionned a 'friend' who got the 12 month offer (9 months at £10 and 3 months at £15 as stated here), they asked me to call back with my friend on the phone so that they can look into 'his' account and match the offer!
#12
Anyonr called up to confirm, I might leave T-mobile for this...

use the orange pay as you go tariff, i use it to call pakistan, i get better rates as i get the vouchers discounted.

http://www1.orange.co.uk/service_plans/payasyougo/payg_camel_costs.html

to call a mobile in malta its 20p/minute and 15p per text

to call a mobile in spain its 10p a minute and 15p a text

you would need to get a sim from that country i would think

That's really good -- I was wondering if there was a good rate in reverse though (contacting the UK from Malta via text/voice for cheap).

is this 600 x-net?


Thanks, i've updated the post, you get 600 anytime x-net minutes :)
#17
ha anyone else done this deal yet. To date only the op seems to have been offered it??
#18
guess this shows how much we subsidise new handsets when comparing these sim only prices to contract handset rental prices.

That's why I always go for 12 month deals, so I can switch away and save money ;)
#19
Why did Op leave O2 ? They do O2 sim only contract for £19.58 online

600 x-net mins
1200 text
And an unlimited Bolt on (choice of Blackberry Data, or Web or free calls)

And upgradeable after 6 months ?

So cold from me

Or you could get the same on Vodafone for £10/month + bolt-on price which IIRC is no more than £7.50.

Aren't you clever.

edit; Yup, £7.50 a month, so £2.50 cheaper, and you're voting it cold?
#21
Deal not available when I rang today. If you want this deal then its 14.75 not a tenner as stated. Customer services were not budging and were aware of the £10 deal being circulated on the net :(
#22
They told me it was for existing customers only and invited me to take a sim-only deal for £15 a month then go over to this as I'd technically be a customer. I just cannot be bothered to be honest. I would have done it for £10 a month and given the sim to my daughter.

I havent voted hot or cold at the moment.
#23
would i be able to switch my payg vodafone to this ??
#24
Im just off the phone to them and i got this deal for £10, i asked her 3 times and she replied yes £10 for 12 months, my sim will be here tomorrow.
#25
Shame vodafone dont work where i live...only 4 miles from sheffield centre too :roll:

Please use this link for information on Vodafone Passport:

http://online.vodafone.co.uk/dispatch/Portal/appmanager/vodafone/wrp?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=templateBlank&pageID=OS_0100

While in Malta/Spain texts are free to receive and cost £0.11 to send back to the UK. Calls received are free for up to 60 minutes per call with a connection charge of £0.75 (i.e. when you answer or your phone diverts to voicemail, so make sure you turn this off). Calls back to the UK cost £0.75 per connection and are charged per minute, however you can use any UK minutes provided in your contract bundle.
#27
Thanks for that - would I be able to use inclusive texts? What about Vodafone Family - if both sims are put on it, do I still pay connection charges?
#28
That's wrong mate Vodafone can change your number over after they have sent out your sim card and started the contract, they told me the same thing the first 5 times but eventually they changed it over just tell them they have to cancel the old number and then they can port across your new number, be persistent the customer is always right!

Via text only, cheapest way is to use [url]www.fishtext.com[/url]. You download the app to your fone and send txt messages via the net. I used this while I was went travelling and fishtext charge 1p per txt and the data cost (on o2, don't have any bolt ons or anything like that) was also about 1p per txt. 2p a text whilst roaming is cheapest I know of!

Hope this helps

The cheapest way of texting regularly abroad is to carry around 2 phones - I did this when my missus was abroad for a couple of months.

You need a sim with unlimited texts, and a pay as you go sim for the missus (I used o2 and it worked fine). You also need a pay as you go from the country she is staying in. When you want to text, text the pay as you go UK number, and when you want to receive, get her to text the pay as you go for her country.

The only thing you need to remember is that some sims cut off if you don't use them for X number of months. o2 was fine as you need to make a paying phone call/text every 6 months.

The alternative is to get an o2 contract phone for her with unlimited texts - £15 I think. 1 text from abroad equals 4 messages from your allowance, and they have a fair usage policy of 3000 - this amounts to 750 texts from abroad a month! Down side is that she would still need to carry 2 phones

This might not answer your question exactly but (depending how long you are moving to malta etc. it may be worth your girl friend getting a three phone and a three payg sim. She can then call you/text you using skype (from her phone). Skype is completely free for three customers even if you don't top up. Only down side to this plan is that you would need access to a computer. Btw you can also call her using skype from any computer with skype while you are in malta for free.
Lol i hope the above does not sound like an advert but that's what I did recently.

Thanks- I will consider your first option; I like the sound of the second one. Which O2 contract allows for unlimited texts for £15? Can't find it online!
#33
Go to the o2 shop, and select "Pay Monthly"

Scroll right down to the bottom and you will see a tariff for £14.69 with 0 mins and 0 texts. On the drop down change to unlmiited texts and there you go!

On a positive note, you can also get a phone with it - the bad news is that you are tied in to an 18 month contract
#34
IMHO this deal is down to luck as no one else seems to have received it, well done to op for getting though. :thumbsup:

Having said that, my recent experience of Vodafone is that they promise you the earth on the phone only to actuallys sign you up to a totally different contract when they post you out the paperwork. Did this to me twice, needless to say they didn't get a third chance. :x

I didn't do it using this post but with a contact in Voda and I have 600 mins, unlimited texts, passport and unlimited internet for £12.50 a month for 12 months.
For anyone thinking about Voda mobile internet take out the deal for £7.50 (this one can be cancelled) as the first month is free. If you don't like it then cancel, if after a month you do like it ask for the 12 month contract which is £5 a month. A free months 'test' :-)
#36
Like everyone else I didn't get this deal, however ...

I did get the same deal, 600 x netty mins & unltd. texts for 24 months for £10, which suits me fine and I got to keep my PAYG number too!

Set up and changed over within the hour!

HEAT & REP ADDED!
#37
sounds a good deal will look into it . voted hot

Or you could get the same on Vodafone for £10/month + bolt-on price which IIRC is no more than £7.50.

Aren't you clever.

edit; Yup, £7.50 a month, so £2.50 cheaper, and you're voting it cold?


Well, not for Blackberry user. Cause cost extra for BIS
#39
Sounds good, will call them tomorrow
#40
So works out at £11.25 a month over 12 months and £15 a month is new monthly price when your 12 months is up, i presume then you have to haggle to try and get it down to £10 again a month or just cancel if they say no.One thing that is somewhat worrying is these vodafone deals seem made up with some operators refusing to honour the deals and a very few that seem happy to let it go but judging by a post or 2 here it would seem in reality this deal will be 24 months not 12 if you really want it and for that reason" i wont be investing today, Im out." :)

If you are seriously thinking about trying for this deal insist on an email or letter within 14 days confirming exact deal/tariff.
