Decent for under £50?

As if you would pay for a separate data plan for this, haha.

But you might get a throwaway PAYG SIM or Three reward SIM.

How much free data do these have?

I don't think this is the cellular version anyway, my guess is instead of Micro SIM, the tablet can actually take a Micro SD.

It may be dual slot ?

What I'm saying is I doubt it will have cellular hardware, it would be like fitting an ashtray to a motorcycle.

I think you'll find it doesn't have 3G.

JL list the model as ZA0R0034GB which is the *non* 3G one.

It's a TABLET, why are people presuming this can be used as a phone?

We're not - the discussion has been about whether or not it is cellular data enabled.

I also assume it is not 3G one. If it's not you probably claim some discount for misinformation, I think. Could be Win-Win situation.

Because a fair few sim enabled Android tablets have that availability, I have a 8" Huawei from o2 Refresh unlocked with a Three sim, 200MB free and the 3/2/1p plan - use it for email via wifi but handy incase EE/Plusnet signal is not available, I also have TalkMobile & o2 payg sims in a dual sim cheapo handset. I can cross sims at any point to a 3/4G voice capability 8" tablet or i6S if I need coverage, very handy even using it on the o2 payg sim with sat nav and forwarding calls to it driving through places or visiting new places I have no idea of coverage.

Bought. Thxs OP The two year cover swings it for me as I'm away over half the year, and JL have been great over late returns.

I called JL as needed clarification about their stock, I had looked up differences of the model in advance ... There are 2 almost identical versions being sold online with exactly the same title "Lenovo TAB3 7 Essential". The Model:TB3-710F is the one with only a memory card slot. The model: TB3-710I is the one that also has a Microsimcard slot right next to the memory card slot. They do not currently hold stock for the I version of it, but did not seem to realise there was 2 versions that look and are called the same thing. So what they currently have in stock and are selling does not have the 2nd slot for mobile internet - could perhaps stick a dongle in tho?

i have a question, is this better than a 7" amazon fire tablet (the ones that usually retail between 35-40£) ?

Anyone got this.. Was it 3G or did you get a discount?

The title of this deal needs urgent correcting, 3G totally unconfirmed.

That's great :). Conflicting info about here, does it have a dual Micro SD/sim slot or separate ones ? Or is it wifi only ?

It has the space for dual slots, but it's wifi only.
Apologies for the long delay in replying.
