For an emergency SIM your £10 top up only lasts 30 days.....for a true emergency SIM to leave in a phone in a glovebox you'd want something that doesn't expire too quickly. Really you'd need to top up £60 to get a years worth of potential backup - I guess £5 a month for having UK roaming isn't bad if you want to cover all bases.

This is crazy.... SIM for emergency use that stupidly requires regular top-up!.... I genuinely thought it was going to be something like pay a tenner and we guarantee it'll stay live for 5 years or something....?!!

10p per mb is just too expensive. That means for £60 you've only got 600mb and even occasional light use could easily exceed that fairly quickly.

I've been looking at Delight mobile. Runs on EE with the same rates as the 321 payg from 3,but it'll work with 2g phones. Its supposed to be a £5 min top up that lasts for up to 3 months, but so far, neither the post office nor Sainsburys could do that recharge and no one answered the cs number (Its for my father and I want him to be able to top up without using a card).

But who would buy this for regular data use ? Companies and public bodies, not consumers.

Perhaps it's only £5 online ? EE did tiny top ups in Orange stores but think it's £10 now, maybe only £5 via EE website so maybe same for D

No point in a Nokia glovebox, these sims do 3G as well Alcatel 2045 candy bar circa £10/15 on o2 £20 unlocked.

You clearly have not managed to understand why your original comment is so deeply offensive. Read between the lines. You posted a deal, it went cold because it's pretty rubbish, happens to us all, move on. You have no idea who you are talking to.



PS do 5 minutes googling and you will find that Pebble do a SIM that offers the exact benefit you are stating - national roaming in case of emergencies - which with a £10 top-up never expires. £10 cost only.

"A £10 topup will give you access to rates of 15p/min, 15p/txt & 15p/mb for 30 days. If you have not topped up in the preceeding 30 days, you'll pay our standard rates, 25p/min, 15p/txt, 25p/mb. Prepaid credit never expires, as long as you maintain an active service & keep your account in good standing, your credit will "rollover" indefinitely. "

The higher rates will be irrelevant to you given the purpose you are advertising.

Pebble - £120 a year at 15p a unit or £360 for 5p a unit or 240 units at 25p per min for £60 - what a rip off! Think I'll stick to £60 with a years validity and 1200 5p units


Cheap as chips (not really £2.50 the chippy charged me for chips last night, electricity and potatoes are like black gold these days lol)
