so £93 (12x7.75) - £55 TCB = £38 for the year
or do u mean its £55 after tcb ??
This usually pops up with £80 / £84 cashback on Quidco or TCB.
I have 4 contracts running at the moment and waiting for the high value cashback again.
Exclusively for talk talk customers.
I can't believe it's only 3G.
Bear in mind the absolutely atrocious customer service & the fact that their mobile app hasn't worked since the infamous data breach of last October, (eight whole months ago which gives you some indication of the state of their technology & aspiration) and that you will therefore be unable to check your usage unless you log in on a pc (though even then their usage stats are anything from 2-14 days behind) and if you really feel like a little gamble this could, possibly, be the deal for you...
As stated, you have to be an existing customer so are likely familiar with Talktalk & their uniquely awful service, therefore IF the cashback tracks then £38 for a years 3G contract is about as cheap as it comes.
Best of luck & hope this works for someone...
I signed up a month or so ago, £50 cashback then which has tracked OK. It's only 3g now, I was with t-mobile on an unlimited data deal (also 3g). They are changing network soon and will be 4g.

I first joined Talktalk mobile in early 2014 and was informed that 4G was 'coming soon'..! They piggy-backed off of Vodafone but eventually announced their plan to become part of O2's 4G network by the end of 2014.
Well, they're still trotting out the spiel 'we'll soon be using O2's infrastructure with 4G coverage' but I'm not not holding my breath. My contract is up in August & I'll be gone quicker than a rat up a drainpipe; in my experience they are the most dishonest, procrastinating, dilatory, incompetent, vaccilating mobile phone company in the UK & I'm even including Vodafone...
As said before, if you're happy with the allowances & are able to snaffle the cashback then fair enough, it's a dirt cheap deal but if you want accurate bills, a solid service and the ability to check your usage whenever you want then I suggest looking elsewhere.

You have possibly missed a few derogatory remarks, but I know where you are coming from!
I ditched them for my home phone and broadband, but as I had a mobile contract, I was technically still a 'customer', so can take advantage of these deals - hence having four contracts (two are actually profitable - cashback greater than the annual cost and one virtually free with 1000 minutes).
My advice? Use them as they would use you.
I'm actually waiting for that £80 sim cashback deal to pop up again.

Hi, read your comments with interest - I ditched TT and went to Sky for the cheap broadband deal. I too have 4 phone contracts with them which were good deals for the first year and are about to become more expensive. I figured I wouldn't be able to get new contracts because of not being a broadband customer - am I still entitled to the offers please? I've never had a major issue with TT unlike many on here. Thanks

Being a mobile customer still entitles you to take out deals. You mobile number (any one you have) is enough. Take out another deal and this will 'prolong' your life as a customer. I do have one 24 month contract, but that included a mobile phone.
Thanks backinstock, I have just done one of the two I need updating via topcashback - incredibly straightforward as it asks if you wish to update an existing phone number so no hassle of getting a new sim and porting old number later.

I need another one as a second contract has expired - not sure whether tof it now or wait for the £75 / £80 cashback?

How did you go about putting several TT mobile numbers through TCB?
I ask as we have two contracts expiring at the end of the month (both mobiles are under one main Home phone account), we each have a separate TCB account. Just wondering about the mechanics of it.
TIA.
I have had several TalkTalk sims in the past couple of years even though not being a broadband customer I logged in to an old account, 3 years old, and they let me purchase and I also got cashback.

​To get multiple sims and still get the cash back i would buy them a few days apart.
i am getting 800 mins, unltd texts and 2.5GB data for 3.95 from TT with profitable cashback

I've done two in a week before.
I switch between Quidco and TCB and recently took out a £50 cashback from Quidco for my brother. 12 x £3.95 p/m and £50 cashback = no brainer.

Once you couldn't log in to your seperate Talktalk mobile account, once you left as a broadband customer, but you can now.

Check your contracts and bills etc.
The good thing is, you can swap your Talktalk number to another Talktalk new account without porting out and back in. That's if you want to keep your number of course.

Looks like the CB has now dropped to £33, so will have to hope it goes back up before our 12M contracts actually come to an end. It's a pity they were both taken out at the same time, but I guess I can put one through and then leave a few days before trying the other one.
Good to know about not needed to port the number out / in again.
Out of interest, how much of your contract did you have left before purchasing a new / replacement SIM? Wondering how much leeway I can get away with vs potentially losing the CB offer available at the time.
TIA

It's still £50 with quidco if you need one desperately. They seem to alternate between offers.

I have 5 contracts with them and can't wait to leave them. Just been offered £3.95 for 250mins and 1.3gb data on a 12 months contract

The 4g switchover is been constantly delayed, and I don't trust with them with the charging structure to use 4g on a exisitng 3g contract.At the moment the company is not investing enough in its infrastructure and people to worth considering them as a good company to worth taking a contract with, my personal thoughts.

£50 cashback at quidco (says valid for days) but if u are a TCB user I think they have a scheme to match other cashback sites.
