There is also a search, but no triples, you can find some with two pair, or containing 1234 or 4321 ... kicking myself... lost a triple 0 when I let it expire on an old sim

07942819056 - I'm not sure I see anything special about that number.

However I've just seen that you can just F5 (refresh) on the page once it displays the number and cycle through till you find one you like. Just done it 20odd times and nothing particularly special I saw.

Seems like a good idea with reasonable prices but no 'gold' numbers. Not even close.

where else can you get a gold number ?

Are you sure that Coms is owned by Ikea?



I'm sure that I read it somewhere, and after loading my sim card this morning my phone is currently displaying IKEA where it usually says Vodafone.

The tesco value tariff is pretty good, 8p per minute,4p per text , 0800 and 0845 numbers included, billing in seconds too so nasty rounding up to the next minute like some big networks

Not cheaper than below.http://www.asda-mobile.com/?node_id=1.2



ikea mobile is cheaper than asda if you go to asda mobile phone charges page numbers 0845 0870 0844 asda charges between 30 to 40 pence a minute. ikea charges 12 a minute to these numbers.

I had 07 5500 12301 in mine, decided not to bother though

I went ahead and ordered one and got a cracking number: 07-ww-xx-yy-zz-x

Makes a change from T-Mobile!

I'm waiting for my T-Mobile contract to expire before I start using my family mobile sim. T-Mobile routinely overcharge me by £40 ish and it takes for ever to get through to their helpline and then they have no authority to do anything. I hate T-Mobile and can't wait to get rid!

I had no idea Asda where sooooo cheap! Wish I wasn't on a contract now. I'm with T Mobile Flext, calls are 20p!!!!!!!

I vote this cold based on Asda's prices.

Was thinking about this a few days ago.

Get the memorable number, hope for the £20 [which makes this work out cheaper than ASDA] then port the memorable number over to an ASDA card for cheap PayG goodness.


Thing is, I'm thinking I prefer to have the O2 simplicity contract at a monthly £20...memorable number on this could be really useful in the long term.

To Mr. Scoob65: If you waited 10 days + 1 weeks + 4 weeks + 2 weeks then you managed to buy your SIM before they launched in the UK

NB. I bought a SIM a week after they launched. It's 6 weeks ago now. Good service in my area. Think it's T-Mobile's network. Called their Customer Care twice. Answered the phone within 30 sec's every time and were very helpful. I guess the tech is quite standard. I vote HOT.
