This has been on before and I've been using it for months but I've submitted it again because it is a fantastic bargain for low volume users.

Just 47p for the sim instore and online (delivered) or free if you top-up £10

It uses the Vodaphone network and I had no trouble transferring my number over (from Orange).

looks good for those who dont use the phone enough to make a contract worth it so hot from me:thumbsup:

Tesco extra value tariff is the same price 4p txt,8p a min , but piggy backs on the o2 network which i find is a stronger signal for me.

Plus clubcard points with Tesco!

I am using Asda and have been trying to set up the voicemail. I phoned the 121 to set it up but it says to phone their customer service line for help. So I have to pay 25p just to set up a voicemail... Or is there another way to set it up?

Have you registered the sim with Asda, they credit you account with £1 when you do

Have been using them for a over a year now, am very happy. Have never spent less money on calls Excellent value, very good network.

Remember you can port your existing number to ASDA or between any network for that matter:thumbsup:

Not bad. the only bad thing is you have to actually tell people your on Asda mobile

I love o2s web bolt on with free txts on each top up and free credit then rewards with the duck game and used to discount home broadband

I have been waiting for months now for Asda to sell a phone @ £25 including £10 Tariff. Missed the last one because there was no stock. got the sim but waiting ages.....

HappyCanMan;6920353

Why do you have to tell them? Why would you tell anyone what network your phone was on?

yes, but when you get older you prefer to brag about how cheap you get things for, ive been on asda a few months since my 3 contract finsihed, brilliant, if you make a call it will cost you 8 p even if you only sepak for 10 seconds, i bare this in mind and often look at the timer when on a call ....

Def Hot if long winded calls is the last thing you want, good if your single ... lol

Asda sims work on Vodafone phones as well if this helps.

Ofcom should force them to express data charges per gigabyte. Let's see how many they sell at £200/gigabyte.

Are you ignorant?

A £15 O2 top up gets you unlimited texts, 500MB of web, and for a fiver 1000mins to O2, leaving £10 credit to use as you please. Furthermore whilst Asda mins cost 8p a minute, O2's first three mins are 25p, and minutes after that are 5p, cheaper than Asda.

A £15 Asda top up gets you 188mins OR 375 texts, which is nothing compared to the O2 deal above.

Granted, Asda is incredible value for money, and an excellent deal for those who top-up a fiver a month. But if your topping up 10-15 monthly, you'd be better off with O2 paygo, or a SIM only deal.

Voted Hot BTW.

ASDA mobile is a constant bargain I enjoy! It can't go wrong when two-third of all mobile users are on Pay As You Go tariffs! :thumbsup:

The roaming rates on this sim are quite shocking, apart from that its great value.

i use asda great rates
and when daughter was away in turkey on her hols i texted her every day and each only cost 4p off my credit

Tesco Lite is great - my 11 year old daughter has it - no internet needed - so just wanted cheap texts and calls PAYG.

Asda sims work on Vodafone phones as well if this helps.



Wow, is that right?
I've just bought a Samsung Genio phone for my son for Christmas but it's locked to Vodafone and the Vodafone shop cannot say when they can unlock it (no codes or something?) and they want £20 for the pleasure OF TRYING!

Vodafone's PAYG rates are very expensive compared to Asda so the Asda deal looks great.

I see that Tesco now offer 7 days unlimited internet for £2.

to transfer ur no. to asda or other network, do u have to call ur service provider and ask the for some PUK!! code?

Sorry but Asda is old news and yesterday's man now. The new kid on the block is Vectone. It is another virtual network, piggy backing on T-Mobile.

Calls - 5p
Texts - 5p
international from 3p a minute, 1p at weekends.
Vectone to Vectone - free

Anyone know if Asda do some sort of Daily GPRS deal, rather than 20p per Mb?
