With the Vodafone £20 Sim only deal you get
900 mins
Unlimited text and 500Mb of internet usage and £100 Quidco.
#2
Good deal, but I prefer using [URL="www.topcashback.co.uk"]TopCashBack[/URL], who don't charge a fee, match their competitors cashback and you can get upto 10% extra cashback

I see they now offer the Simplicity Tariff as shown with, for example, 900 mins and unlimited text for £20 with 1 bolt on of unlimited calls to landlines or to O2 mobiles.

There is also a SImplicity for Smartphones tariffs so for £20 you only get 600 mins, unlimited texts and then unlimited Data. So 300 mins less. What did it used to be for £20? 900 mins, unlimited text and you could choose internet as a bolt on?
#4
Can anyone know how easy it is to transfer your old O2 number if you get this new contract?
#5
Do you know if it is applicable for simplicity 12 months for smart phone as well? Quidco doesn't say anything about Smartphone tariff.

good deal ,,got it on 10 pounds for 300 min while ago

It used to be £20 for 800 mins, 1600 txts + a free bolt on (i.e. internet, o2 to o2 calls etc.)

Yes it will be for smartphone tarriff too but will mean 600 mins instead of 900 mins.

Nor sure, there is also Simplicity for iPhone. I guess it should apply to any Simplicity Tariff. Who is going to be first to try! I got the £20 tariff last July for my Sister and the £100 never tracked. I submitted a claim which was successful but still just shows as validated and never been paid!

Hmmm, you might need to port it out to another PAYG then port back in. I did that once and it was quite easy. Just needed a few phone calls. Get a Tesco sim and register it and make 1 chargeable call, call O2 for your PAC code and then give this to Tesco. As soon as the number ports call Tesco for a PAC code and then call O2 again to port the "Tesco" number in to your new O2 Simplicity Sim.

Hmmm not too bad then. Just 200 mins less. I see T-Mobile does a £20 tariff with 900 mins, unlimited text and data. Just no Quidco :(

My daughter got one of these for her blackberry in August last year - quidco tracked and paid fine.
I think she signed up with unlimited o2 calls as her bolt on, then just rung them up and said she wanted to change to the blackberry bolt on - no problem :thumbsup:

Do you know if you have to supply the PAC at the time you sign up to the contract, or could I order today and then sort the PAC out over the next few days? As far as I'm aware, PACs take a few days to become active right?
#12
click on the linkin the first post then on o2 web site click on pay and go broadband then select the e160 black dongle as have only tried it with that one then select the £10 tarif go to checkout and you can get the dongle for £10 delivered
#13
Cold really.

For £25 on a 12 month contract on T-Mobile I get 1100 mins + Unlimited Texts + Unlimited Internet.
#14
Sorry, so are we saying it will cover smart phone too? I have just emailed quidco to find out, might be very tempting if it covers smart phone too!?

Might have to give vodafone a ring and request a PAC number!

Yes, and if Quidco goes through you can get 900 minutes, unlimited texts and internet, for the equivalent of £12.50 a month. I know which one I think is better.

Plus, it looks likes T-mobile only offer 500 texts on their sim-only plans now. You can choose to have unlimited, but then you lose the unlimited internet option.

O2 give you 30 days to provide a PAC, so you can order this deal and then fill out the transfer number form on their website within 30 days and everything will work out fine.

When you fill out the form, O2 will give you a transfer date. Up to that date you can use the new O2 sim (or your existing contract). On that date you'll notice that you lose network connection, at which point you turn the phone on and off (and put in the O2 sim if you were using the existing contact). After that your number transfer is complete and you only experience minimal downtime.

REMEMBER
Don't cancel your existing contract. You simply request a PAC from your network, order this O2 deal, then use the form linked above to provide O2 with your PAC which will port your existing number onto this new O2 contract.

Here's the thread from a year back for O2 promotion.

It was 800mins/1600txts and bolt on (unltd l/l or O2 or internet) Quidco was £110 so deal was £10.52 after Quidco.

Plenty of folks on O2 were able to 'port' their old numbers onto this deal.

It does not affect the quidco tracking. My daughter bought the sim going through my quidco account; I got the quidco (which I paid to her!) and she got the sim no problem.
#22
Just been on the phone to o2. First guy I spoke to said you can use a PAC code to transfer from an old o2 contract to a new one, which is news to me, but who knows.

I phoned o2 sales to double check this, and they said that I wouldn't even need a PAC code and that if I order this new sim and then phone their team when it arrives, they will just transfer my old o2 number across to this new contract. (Cancelling my old contract in the process!) Sorted!

If that doesn't work, MrBrightside thanks for the above info, I will just do that if necessary!

simple to keep the old number, you fill in a form online and it takes about 24 hours they text you, turn your phone off and back on a its done.
i took up the £10 for 300 minutes and free landline calls last month, all works fine. my old sim tel number was o2 as well so not sure if it takes longer with another network.

Looking at the Quidco site in more detail, it says:

Hot Offer!
£100 cashback for a 12 month SIM Only £20 tariff (900 mins / unlimited texts) £11.66 after Quidco cashback!
£150 cashback for 12 month SIM Only £25+ tariff (1200 mins / unlimited texts) £12.50 after Quidco cashback!

I'm not actually sure whether the smartphone tariffs are eligible for the cashback? Especially given that when you add the £20 smartphone tariff, it says it is actually the £15 Sim Only tariff + £5 for unlimited internet.

Confused.

Good point i would definetly need the data but does it still qualify for the cashback :?
Cant even find a £20 smartphone tarriff just comes up with 18-24 month tarriffs.

If you go to Sim Only Simplicity down the left hand menu, and then on that page there will be a drop down menu near the top where you need to select Simplicity for Smartphones - 12 months.

I'm thinking that you will get paid on the Smartphone tariffs, just not as much as it was initially thought. I would think you would get £100 for a £25 smartphone tariff (due to it being a £20 simplicity + internet), and £150 for a £30 smartphone tariff (due to it being a £25 simplicity + internet). That would work out at £16.66 and £17.50 per month respectively.

N.B. It seems (see post 41 below) that the OP's calculations were right, as Quidco now stating that £100 is paid for ALL £20 tariffs.

Just a word of caution before anyone signs up...

MMS (Multimedia Messages) used to come out of your inclusive text allowance (1 MMS = 4 SMS), however, they are now charging for MMS at 20p per message - this is true for Vodafone and Orange as well although charges vary per network carrier.

I personally am a little annoyed at this recent decision by the network carriers as I was quite happy to use 4 SMS for 1 MMS, but I've heard that O2 claim the service wasn't as popular as it should have been (although I personally believe it's got more to do with people uploading photos to Facebook etc... via MMS). ;-)

I have emailed Quidco to see if they can offer any insight.

Having just looked on the TopCashback website, they seem to suggest it is for any £20/month sim only tariff, in which case, the OP's calculations would be correct! In that case, it is probably best to do it through TopCashback!

I won't make a difference which cashback site you go through, as they're both connected to the same affiliate network

Be extremely careful when going through Quidco. I did this offer back in December last year and my transaction never tracked. I'm very careful with cashback (have seperate browser always clear settings and have done many, many transactions).

Anyway, when trying to compose an enquiry, Quidco state:

"Unfortunately we are unable to investigate transactions for this merchant."

My advice is to avoid Quidco if you can.

Mine tracked into my account the day it was bought (30/7/09) and was paid out in the September payment - so two months start to finish.
#39
Anyone remember how long it took to be Validated on Quidco?

Ignore this - Quidco website states 2 months.
#40
Wording just changed on Quidco website, now says:

£100 for 12 month SIM only contracts (on ALL £20 per month tariffs).

It would seem that we would be fine taking the £20 smartphone tariff, although it still says it is £15 per month tariff + internet when added to the basket.

Would be useful if Quidco could state that the £20 smartphone tariff is eligible!
