BT Mobile SIMO 20GB Tariff with Unlimited Mins, Texts, and BT Wifi. Save £4 a month (non-BT broadband customers £21 a month) otherwise

Found 5th Feb 2016
BT Mobile have an offer on the 20gb tariff for £16 a month for BT broadband customers (or £21 a month for non BT broadband customers).

If you have BT broadband at home, then select "got BT broadband at home" at the top and the price drops to £16 a month.

Also, possible £35.35 TCB.

I think this is a great deal as long as you dont need tethering as BT Mobile do not allow this.
Otherwise, the network has been great. I have been with them since they started and data speeds have been consistent throughout the day ranging from 25mbps to 30mbps.

They are also offering an add on for an extra £4 a month which doubles the data speed to up to 60mbps (I havent tried this yet)

They run on the EE network, which has now been taken over by BT anyway.

Nope cant tether. But 20gb comes to good use especially if you stream a lot (if your a football fan then you can watch some matches on the BT Sport Lite app which is included for BT Mobile customers)

OK last question. Wifi calling included?any thanks

I'm with BT mobile & always have decent coverage and 4G.

Yeh that sucks.

I was reading that you need to be a BT landline customer to use the wifi calling? Unless I got my wires crossed. OK very last two questions can you receive calls through wifi calling. Based on someone calling your number? Sorry just want to make sure as I'm very tempted

No you cant receive calls through wifi by someone just calling your number in the usual way. Wifi calling will only work through apps like whatsapp or skype.

I think your getting confused with the bt smarttalk app which is for landline customers which allows you to make calls through wifi and get billed through your landline account (useful especially when abroad because you get charged as you would when calling from the UK, so if you have free evening/weekend calls, then calls will be free to make back to the uk. But be careful with the time difference as you need to look at the UK time). But even this app does not allow you to receive calls.

Just to correct you here, not in a nasty way but just for your info, WiFi Calling is a new feature in iOS 9 (I think) but is currently only used by EE in the UK. It basically routes your calls via your wifi if you don't have a good mobile signal. Unfortunately as yet BT Mobile don't offer this, whether they will in the future now they own EE is another thing

Good deal. Have some heat

Thannks for the info.

shame about the non tethering but you would expect to pay more to have this feature

I've currently got a 12 month BT 2GB SIMO contract. Got it during Black Friday, £8pm, but I got £35 quidco and a £20 Amazon voucher from them. Given I use Amazon lots, it was like getting £55 cashback, thus making the contract £41 for the year or £3.42 a month if you prefer. A good deal for 4G coverage that works virtually everywhere I frequent!

N.b. when ordering online keep screen grabs of your order, as initially BT tried to tell me I ordered by phone and wasn't due the Amazon voucher, that wasn't true, it was only thanks to my extended browser history plugin and going to the trouble of PDF'ing lots of their e-mails and so on that I was able to get the Amazon voucher.

Don't forget 35 pounds Quidco!

Vodafone offer Wifi Calling as well.

What I do miss from EE is VoLTE. Vodafone are supposed to be implementing this as well, but currently the phone still switches from 4G to E (GPRS) when making/receiving a call. Can be a bit annoying if you need to use the internet soon after the call as it doesn't always switch back instantly to 4G. I assume BT would have it implemented since they're using EE's network, as unlike Wifi Calling theres no additional network components/config required.

Hopefully this offer or similar is around in a few months when my Voda contract comes up for renewal. As I can use it to beat them down (one big advantage with Vodafone for us is free spotify).

Thanks for the heads up Bud...only just activated my sim yesterday at the old £20 price. Rang them up and they reduced my bill.

They seem to have dropped the #10-#20 Amazon gift card at the moment, which is a shame. My son got the 2GB plan for a special offer #8/.mth (BT household) with #35 Quidco and #20 Amazon gift card, boith of which he has received no probs. Makes the plan 3 and a half quid per mth over 12 months. Crazy deal. The gift cards will be back so keep checking.

Thanks all for the great info.

Is it 4G and do they allow theering?

If you are already with bt mobile on a lesser tariff you should find you change your plan to this one at this price if you want to and it won't extend your existing contract period. Hate that I can't tether to my iPhone with my bt mobile sim in though!

The amazon voucher is actually mentioned on TCB's page. (At least for me anyway)

Can someone explain why we can't tether? 20 gig is 20 gig, however you use it. I am on EE & I tether a lot, now BT has/is taken over, I guess they will imp[ose their draconian rules on that as well.

Don't understand why people keep saying you can't tether...

I've been on the 20GB package for almost a year and I tether daily.

Ok so we can tether but if you take the **** they will remove it, fair enough. Whats the service like (I live in east/central london) and can BT sims go straight into a EE phone?

isn't this the usual BT thing about they don't 'support' tethering but don't prevent it? that is, they won't help you to tether but, unless you're a donkey, you can do it regardless and without their help? haven't read and t&cs but this comes up with each BT deal...

ive been told by someone that it says you cant tether, but he is still able to use tethering... give it a try?

I've had the nasty letter from 3 and rand them for a price match. They laughed...

If you want to make calls over data with BT Mobile have a look at BT SmartTalk. "If you’re a residential BT customer you can make calls on your mobile for the same great value as if you were using your home phone, all through your smartphone’s wi-fi or mobile data connection."

ask for a PAC code... ou lose nothing by getting one... you can let it lapse with no issues and, once you get close to the end date i reckon you'll get a call from retentions...

Oh for god sake, had this 3 weeks at the £20p/m price.

I've been streaming some radio stations for a while on my home network. I want to do the same in the car via a phone. I have no idea how much streaming uses. Could I stream for say 4 hours a day, every day, for the months 20 gig or would I get more or less.

Also my quidco was knocked from £60 to £35 and also never recieved my amazon voucher.

From 28.01.16 until 03.02.16 £30 voucher on 2GB and £40 voucher on 20GB plan for non-existing BT Broadband Customers.

So I wouldn't get this as a broadband customer? ...
