BT Mobile 12M SIMO 15g 4G Unltd/Unltd £16pm (£21pm non-BT) + £80 Amazon Voucher + Poss £35.35 TCB (Tethering Allowed)

Found 17th Jun 2016
Had been holding out to confirm if tethering was allowed on BT Mobile and it now is fully implemented on Android and being rolled out on iPhones, which is what I have.

I think the £80 Amazon voucher is the highest so far? I've personally only noticed £60 vouchers being offered.

The math (for BT Customers)

£16pm x 12mts = £192 - £80 Amazon = £112/12mts = £9.33p/m without relying upon TCB. If you factor that in then it's:

£112 - £35.35 = £76.65/12 = £6.39pm

Either way that's a smashing deal for 15g 4G data with unlimited mins & texts on EE.

The math (non-BT Customers)

£21 x 12mts = £252 - £80 Amazon = £172/12mts = £14.33pm w/o TCB

£172 - £35.35 = £136.65/12mts = £11.39pm with TCB

Both are acceptable

You need to log into BT and use your order and VOC ? numbers to claim voucher as its not automatic. There should be a link in the sign up email you had and guidance.

Don't rely on voucher, bt wriggle out of paying!

I did a sim only deal and got the voucher and TCB, cashback tracked on its own but I had to chase the voucher through BT - got it in the end though, just keep on at them

With bt vouchers you need to register online to receive them, it's there way of getting out of it but it's in the small print

Sorry but since when has tethering been allowed on bt sim's / the bt network at all?

I went for a simular BT deal about 6 months ago and I didn't receive a VOC code by email so I googled it and other people said they did receive it by email but I had to search for mine on their site. I did get the vouchers though.

Prohibited use

Great news thanks for the info, BT really should update their T&C's !
I'm glad I voted hot, it's a pretty decent deal now that's allowed.

Ah, well that's good then =]

Excellent news on tethering then this makes bt sim's and their current price plans hot

I got both TCB and the voucher before. 2gb for equiv £1.30 a month. Broadband paid out too, £68 for a year Inc AMC and sport (although I didn't take sport as I don't want it)

Despite them owning EE you can't get the double-speed 4G on BT mobile yet, at least not at an inclusive price. That's the only thing stopping me moving to these deals.

bt allow tethering since last week on Sims and bt handsets. endex.

This is from their new terms and conditions effective july 3. Seems they do not allow tethering. Happy to be advised otherwise.

Can you link to where you found those T&Cs?

BT broadband customers not bt customers.

Thanks. I think it's just a case that BT haven't updated their T&Cs. You are now allowed to tether.

Guys, as someone who works for BT Mobile I can confirm tethering is now supported (as of June 1st). This will automatically be available on Android and Windows Phones however if you're running an iOS device you won't be able to enable tethering until the next iOS update.

Mention about vouchers: you must claim your voucher, you must put your claim in after 14 days (cooling off period) otherwise it is auto-rejected without notification. Once applied you should receive your gift card within 30 days. Only once these 30 days have passed can the call centre advisors raise an escalation to the elusive vouchers team.

To claim your vouchers you will need your VOL number (found on order confirmation emails) but can also be provided to you over the phone if you can verify your account number.

Any questions feel free to ask

See my last comment

I have an EE signal booster, would this work with it? Unfortunately I don't get signal at home without it.

Id love to know if there is a way to signal boost BT at home. EE and Three are dodgy at my new place really hit and miss mainly miss. BT is on EE network and I want to use the benefit of signing up to a SIMO and fibre package.

BT can't say yes as effectively EE are another company and have provided you the equipment to be used with an EE sim... however we use EE and there's nothing to stop it from working. Worst case scenario you take out a BT mobile sim, it doesn't work, so you cancel within your 14 day cooling off period:)

Unfortunately BT do not supply any signal boosting products, but that's not to say that they don't work. BT just can't guarantee it. BT does offer an app to allow you to make outbound calls using your wifi (and landline allowance) though called Smart talk... doesn't help with data and sms mind you. Worst case scenario, the signal isn't up to scratch and you cancel within 14 day cooling off period
