Asda Mobile PAYG 1000mins + Unlimited Texts + 2gb data £10 till April

75
Found 25th Dec 2015
Asda Mobile PAYG have reduced their £15 bundle Tariff to £10 till April. 1000 mins, unlimited texts and 2gb data. Thought this was quite a good deal as no contract and they piggy back off EE. The bundle last for 30 days.

I presume this is 3g only? If not, I'll be all over it!

It will be 3G
Does this also include the actual £10 top up or is this a bundle costing £10?

0800 numbers are all free on mobiles now.
Not really payg, just a monthly contact.

"There is no roll over with our bundles. Any minutes, texts or data left after 30 days will expire."

Very few do real payg, where you pay money and a set amount of service is bought regardless of time taken to consume the service. All these are, are monthly contracts.

How is it not? There is no binding contract? There's is no minimum commitment, no credit check? You can't run up a bill, u pay and literally use it, if you don't pay you can't use it?!? If you do not want a bundle it's 8p per min 4p per text if you prefer a set amount to use whenever you want?
In my mind it is a monthly deal, you need to pay a set amount each month to get the service, failure to pay the minimum amount means you lose the service despite what you have already paid

I'm on a annual contact. I get so much stuff per month, which also doesn't roll over.

If the minimum top up is £5 a month and it doesn't provide any service for more than 30 days it is a £5 a month package.

True payg, like 3 have is where you buy stuff up front and can use it over whatever period you want. The crucial difference is the lack of a time element in the contact/ terms and conditions.
Link broken!..
If you get the deal now does it revert to £15 a month in April or does it mean the offer ends in April for new customers?

Did that make sense?

You do not lose the service if you fail to pay! If you fail to top up do you lose the service on traditional pay as you go?
These bundles were created to be like a contract but they are not contract they are pay as you go. If you don't like them then use the 8p min and 4p text which is good value

​the key point is there is no ongoing direct debit and no credit check. For some this is a huge difference.

I've recently switched to Life Mobile after a horrendous experience with Talkmobile. They answer the phone very quickly and are English speakers based in the UK. I was very impressed and you can't normally say that about mobile companies. One thing they piggyback EE and if your current provider is EE or runs on EE it takes 7 working days to port your number.

All mobiles include 0800 numbers even if you have no bundle and you won't find any company doing the 0845 as it has a service charge to it

Got my dad the life mobile deal where it's £6 per month (30 days contract), 1500 minutes, 1gb data and unlimited texts through uswitch a few weeks ago, also doesn't require any credit checks so it seems like a payg...got his old number ported over within 48 hours no problems, everything went smoothly!

Virgin mobile allows 0845 free on there 30 day rolling £10 plan. 2500 mins, unlimited tx, only 1gb though.
I looked around and concluded that Asda were one of the best deals and this post seems to be a good opportunity to join. You can though just take out the traditional payg deal with calls at 8p per minute and texts 4p each (data is 5p per MB and only 3G so not good for heavy use). The £7 a month deal mobile.asda.com/bun…les has 300 minutes unlimited texts and 500 MB of 3g data. I have also found dealing with them on the phone good a real person answers quickly and very helpfully.

Utter rubbish! There isn't a better 3G bundle available. Plenty of people have no need for 4G and there must be millions of 3G handsets still in use. If you would rather live in a more advanced part of the planet then just go.

Will take a look at this,as post office is going down to 1 gb for £10 which is bad thanks

Please post the PAYG bundle deal you found that's so good it makes this one look cold, very cold. It's not in the spirit of HUKD to keep it to yourself.

OP, might I suggest an edit to the title? "£10.00 till April" made me think if I buy the bundle the allowances will last until April, but as you rightly say in the post itself it only lasts 30 days. "£10.00 for 30 days -- offer expires in April" would be clearer.
Giffgaff were good,post office were better,
Greed kicks in and they lower the data.But looks like this will do me for now.2gb for a tenna should be the norm in this day and age.

Looks a great deal, but the reviews of this network iD are not very good, as it using Three, it says that the 4G only covers just over 50 percent of the county and it has the slowest 4G out of all providers averaging just over 8mb. Pity, I would have considered this.

Ive been with Asda Mobile for about 6 months now and had no problems , great service and good value bundles, the current deal £15 bundle for the price of £10 is great.
Im trying to get the whole family on 1 network, I need to tether for work and need 3gb data the rest of the family would be happy with 500mb. Is there anything better than what Giffgaff offer? Thanks in advance
