A great network with 5* on Trust Pilot using EE's infrastructure

A great Pay as you Go deal if thats all that you need.

£10 for the Sim that gives you £10 credit

  • 1p per txt, 1p per minute and 1p per MB
  • 4G DATA
  • Of course its only 1p in the EU also now
  • Tethering Allowed
  • Keep you number
  • Credit Rolls OVer
  • UK Support
  • No contract at all - not even 30 days

Must top up just £10 every 120 days (4 months) or equivalent £2.50 per month top up. Not a lot really and will get used
Community Updates
Joining top-up: £10 (minimum)

Top-up at least once every 120 days (4 months) - otherwise you lose your remaining credit, number & account

Top-up values: £10, £15, £20, £30, £40, £50

Full tariff & charges details: 1pmobile.com/tar…taf

Coverage checker (EE): 1pmobile.com/cov…taf
So you must top up every 120 days with at least £10 .

TOP-UP REQUIREMENTIn order to remain a customer, you must top-up your 1pMobile phone/account at least once every 120 days (4 months) with effect from the Commencement Date. If you fail to do so, we will close your 1pMobile account, your mobile number will be disconnected, and any unused credit will be lost.
They are on TopCashback at £5, so only £5 outlay if that pays, to try them out.

Also yes you do need to top up £10 every 4 months, but the beauty of it is that you can let the credit build for a year until you find a month that you unecpectedly need high usage (family emergency, broadband down for a few days, etc.). Been carrying their sim in a small phone with keypad to backup my Three smartphone for regular no Three signal moments!

I believe you have to top up at least once every 120 days, so might not be the best choice for very low users. Still cheap for £30 a year though.

It is if you only use £2 a year like me!


I set my Father up with a payg sim from Delight Mobile. It's on the same rates as 3's 1.2.3 payg sim (running on EE) but you only have to top up £5 every 3 months and it's a free sim. He hardly ever uses the sim, it's more so we can get in touch and so far it's fine. He can top up at the shops so it's doing the job.

I'll keep an eye on this thread and see if it might be worth switching over.

Looks a good deal for PAYG that does....
Better than my Three 321 deal that i'm currently on.

This info should be stated in OP's deal...... its a misleading deal otherwise.

Fair point missed. But £2.50/month top up not a massive requirement tbf

Strange, 95% of those reviews have been posted since August 2017.

Will probably try them to see what they're like, so thanks for posting.

Some thoughts:

- you can set it to top up automatically, either when your credit drops below £2 or 120 days have elapsed (so you don't lose your number, though will obviously build up credit);

- there's a tedious £5 charge if you need a replacement sim;

- the sim is only 'free' if you pay £10 up front to get it... i.e. you can't order a sim for 'free' (as a spare, say).
At the end of the day this isn't go to be for everyone - and there's holes that can be picked in every deal, but this is a hot deal for those that spend atleast £2.50/month on a pay as u go!
Do they give you notice the 120 days is coming to an end ? In the end its our responsibilty but would be nice if they did

Just read on their website they remind you 2 weeks prior to the 120th day ....will give this a go when my 3 2 1 sim credit runs out thanks OP

As a fallback (if they forget), you could also set up a calendar event reminder on your phone.
Been with them for 3 weeks, was on a contract for years and never using anywhere near my calls/text/data allowance, so giving these a try, ported my number, it was done in a day, I think they give you a 14 day trial so if you are not happy you can get a refund. mackem1966, you go online to your account that you set up when you registered, it gives your balance and tells you when you will need to top up again.
This is the standard price for this tariff, so it's not a deal. Voted cold!
The calls/text price is good but for internet, not so much. Using 3GB a month would cost you £30 alone, or £12 with Giffgaff. Steer clear if you're a heavy internet user.

Your father will get a surprise soon. Delight expire unused credit after 90 days. That's regardless of usage.

When did that start? It's not been in effect since I set it up in Feb. I'll give them a call
Good deal, but I still value my 3 payg 321 sim as it doesn't have ANY time limit. It lasts until the money runs out.
I used to top up with £10 when I started and the longest I have gone with that is 7 months & a couple of 6 month spells with my very low usage. (mostly just texts). Now I just put a Fiver on it.
This 1pMobile deal is obviously better if you would use £10 credit within 4 months.

3 GB is £8 with Plusnet, TPO or ID mobile. Giffgaff stopped being competitive a long time ago.

It's in Delight Mobile's T&Cs, 12Bii:

"The validity of each top up is 90 days. Post the 90 days validity period, the credit will expire and the customer will not be entitled to a refund of the expired credit."

Curious that that seems the inly place they mention, at least from my perusal of their site - not very encouraging behaviour.
but has any one used freedompop? You pay a one off fee, and that is it. Ok, the app does crash every now and then. As your calls are made via the app over wifi/data. But for that price of 200mins 200 texts and 200 mb of data. Its pefect

Its not the only MVNO that does that (but thankfully its not a practice that the major networks have taken up), and a very good reason to think carefully before taking the plunge with one of the minnows (you'll see from the link that 1p Mobile themselves had a dodgy £5 a month thing earlier this year)
most trust pilot reviews are fake.
This is perfect for my parents who only use 250 mins a month. Huge thanks op. As long as I can set up automatic payments before the 120 days expiry.
There also appears to be £5.25 cashback available via Topcashback.

So only reduced products and services allowed on HUKD then! What a stupid comment.

4 years and contributed 2 deals to the community 🏽 🏽
I took this 3 Months ago, kept my original number, and still haven't used the initial £10!

Got about £0.70 left in the account, and that will last until the top up in a week anyway, so this has to be the best PAYG out there right now!

Plus it's 4G using the EE network so great coverage!

It's a no brainer

Freedompop is rubbish - all free calls must be made via it's crash prone app and sound crap.
Texts sent sometimes don't arrive either.

Others have been stung as they auto-topup for lots of things too.
I registered with a card that I subsequently lost, so never had any issues in that regard.

You definitely get what you pay for with Freedompop!
Personal numbers 30p per minute + 5p connection charge Personal numbers starting 070 and non-UK-mobile 07 numbers (including LycaMobile ranges - 07417, 07440)
Any of the deals, I have seen, that are cheap payg or even contract are piggybacked off either EE or 3. Does anyone know of one or more that piggyback with a good offer using the O2 network? Cheapest I have seen so far is Tesco which is 8p per minute.
