Oh sorry I didn't realise. How do you mean for those who only use their phone's occasionally? It's cheap for users who use their phones all the time!

The SIM card is actually free instore when bought with £5 credit...

I have an asda PAYG and it's great value. I think for people who use 500 mins say a month it would cost £40, Some monthly 500mins tariffs are a lot less than that. There are loads of people out there who do use 500mins +, I'm not one of them as it happens but disagree with your post totally.

In fact the last contract phone I had around 3 months ago was 300mins, 150texts with 3 phone for £13 per month which would cost £30 with Asda PAYG. So great for occassional users as DontRun mentions.

Anybody know if the ASDA SIM will work in a phone locked to Vodafone?

Would like to know if asda sim would work in vodafone phone too.....i have a phone locked to t mobile and virgin sims and ikea family mobile sim works in that because they use t-mobiles network so i would imagine it would work but best to have someone speak who has tried it :thumbsup:

Yes, these do work in Vodaphone locked phones, as the network is based on Vodaphone.

Also overseas calling has come down in price and texting from France costs 11p! Calling costs about 35p from memory.

as mentioned above it would cost you more if you use anything more than 300-500 mins and loads of texts, web etc.... than getting a contract. The o2 sim only deal which was posted here a while back was a very good deal for just under £20 a month also had £100 quidco that runs out tomorrow midnight, so hurry if you are thinking of getting a new sim. I got one and it tracked within 2 days. so thanks to the original poster! :thumbsup:

similarly, does anyone know if it would work in a virgin mobile phone ?

Unless it's an unlocked phone, probably not.

Virgin Mobile uses T-Mobile's network, which is why there SIM cards are usually interchangeable.

ASDA Mobile uses Vodafone.
Tesco Mobile uses O2.

There are some phones which will only work with their specified network (e.g. not with these MVNO networks). However, some networks/stores occasionally sell phones completely unlocked (e.g. Carphone Warehouse used to be good at doing that)

EDIT: Not bad (not great) data charges for occasional users, I remember paying £3/Mb on O2. Three's 150Mb for topping up may be better for more frequent mobile internet users though

Yes I have a Vodaphone locked phone on the Asda card use it in Spain as well.

i used the asda network for over a year before getting a new contract phone.

As i only used the phone now & then, it worked out great for me. £10 usually lasted 2 months.

Yep, also have an asda SIM in my vodaphone locked phone, I don't use mine that much to be honest only for emergencies and so people can contact me mostly apart from the odd phonecall while out walking the dog... so use approx £10 every few months.
The only thing I found is that the pack states that credit can be added anywhere you see the little mobile top up symbol - which is wrong because tesco have that symbol at a lot of places througout the store or at checkouts and when I tried to get it topped up there it wouldn't go through.... just bear that in mind if like me you shop at tesco

Great deal:thumbsup:

I've used ASDA mobile for the past 6 months with no problems, after canning a contract, but I'm currently fighting the urge to get a new N97 on contract! :?

ooh the great N97 decision. I have recently been through a similar decision making problem and I instead opted for a second hand iPhone.

ASDA are good for domestic calls but from France to the UK is only 25p per min with SIM4travel and it's free to receive calls. :thumbsup:

My Virgin Mobile bill is normally about £4 a month, but my main 5p call is being quadrupled to 20p, so I've signed up for this Asda Walmart deal. After being let down by the new owners of the Virgin Mobile network, I prefer to trust the good associated dairy farmers of Morley and Leeds.

My wife has been with Asda mobile for some time and is very happy with it. I have my sim and am just waitng for my cable to unlock my phone. For the same money I can get 3 times as many texts as I currently get with 3.

So if somebody posts a deal that has been posted (tons of times) previously it still gets voted red hot? :roll:

Not much incentive for people to search out new deals to post is there? Might as well search through old ones to repost.

With respect, (and after 104 posts you will appreciate this), there is no harm in posting a deal again as long as it has not been posted for the previous month or so.

I don't understand your comment about "Not much incentive for people to search out new deals to post is there?". It seems irrelevant to me that this deal has been posted before in regard to people posting new deals - how does that discourage folk from posting the latest and hottest deals?

This forum is not just here for the regulars. If someone had joined last week and didn't know about the ASDA deal they would be very pleased to find out about it. :thumbsup:

its been this price since it was lauched years ago

And your point is...?

Don't new members have a right to know about it? Or do you expect them to trawl through hundreds of other deals to spot this one? :x

Is there a benefit to users for posting on here? Why would you need an incentive, I thought the purpose of this site is to post deals for the benefit of others. Please tell me have I missed something?

This is a good deal, a good deal this is.

I see tesco mobile have matched this price on one of their plans as well so once my £45 free credit for the £15 top up ends (in a couple of weeks) i may switch to that new 8p per call tarif. Its a lot more reasonable than 20p thats for sure!

Carphone Warehouse still does apparently. Bought a nominally Virgin phone from them a month ago, and it came ready unlocked (or at least - will take my orange sim for film wednesdays )

I looked on their site but their PAYG is still 20p?

Granted it is cheaper than any other network on texts but
i found that if you get the tesco sim and use the triple credit system it works out a hell of a lot cheaper.

Right say you top up £20 on asda
you get either 20/0.04 = 500 texts or 250 minutes of call time

If you top up with Tesco £20, £60's worth of credit in effect
you get 60/0.10= 600 Texts or 60/0.20 =300 minutes of call time.

Also if you have 5 favourite numbers works out to be even cheaper.
60/0.05= 1200 texts or 60/0.10= 600 minutes of call time
to the 5 fave numbers.

Aslong as you top up more than £15 with tesco you are getting a better bargain than in ASDA.

ASDA £15 top up
texts 15/0.04=375 texts Calls 15/0.08=187.5 mins

Tesco £15 top up gets you, £45 overall credit
texts 45/0.10=450 texts Calls 45/0.20=225 mins

Obviously if your texting or calling your fave numbers it is double these amounts.

anyway there is long drawn out calculations your choice :thumbsup:

^ But don't forget tesco triple credit is only valid for one month after you top up.

Yeah but it uses the free credit first.....

Flubster

It's all down to how much you use your phone and where.

For a low user in the UK it is a good deal.

it is unfair to compare a pay as you go deal with a contract offer not everyone can pass a credit check to get a contract this is one of the best pay as you go offers out there

ordered one, thanks

Anyone know how long the credit will last? My grandparents need mobiles but are likely to use a handful of times a month at best, and maybe the odd month or two with no useage at all. Just wondered if anyone knew?

Thanks in advance...

Do the maths ^^^^ not that hard mate

been in touch with asda mobile customer services they said that not all calls are 8 pence a minute. 08702 8 pence the rest 35 minute 0845 35 minute 0844 35 minute i am with family mobile 9 minute 0870 0845 0844 12 pence minute 6 pence texts.
