Free Ikea Family Mobile SIM + £5 free credit
I just received an email from them with the offer.
It seems to be great deal - basically you get £5 credit on your free SIM and great call rates - 9p for calls and 6p for text.
Go and check it out!

sounds good!
but whats the catch?
Any idea which network's infrastructure they're using?

I think they are using T-mobile.

Thanks.

Good deal if you're just after the £5 free credit, although for longer term you're better off on Asda Mobile. SIM card costs ]47p delivered and calls/texts are 8p/4p and 20p per MB for downloads.

Should this not be in the FREEBIES section?

Yep Ikea Family Mobile uses T-Mobile Network so you'll need unlocked mobile or a Virgin/T-Mobile phone to use this.

Wow this deal and the Asda deal are cheap.. i've always been put off because people who don't get cheap calls to other networks stop calling!

Anyone know how it would work for other networks. I mean this is 'Family Mobile' network but if someone calls from another network or even a t-mobile will they be charged as if they were callig a t-mobile customer or a 'family mobile' customer?

Does Asda use t-mobile too?

8/9p to any network sure beats 25/min on my O2 phone lol

Great deal - anyone know what the Family ID is?

When you join Ikea family you get a unique family ID. It'll be printed on one of the cards you get when you sign up.

Thankyou very much have ordered one:-D

family id isn't a required field

u no when u order this and it says one per customer does tht mean i can order 5 under different names for the rest of my family inc my self or is it jus one per household?

I would personally be wary of this because of the automatic topup, you have to register your credit card details and your credit is automatically topped up once your balance drops below £3. I've never gone for a contract phone because of the possibility of big bills if the phone was stolen, could not the same happen with this?

I didn't say it was. I was just answering someones question.

I saw the dc/cc fields, I never filled them in though as I suspected there was a auto topup feature.

Just writing to agree with Elfa, a great deal, been with them for 6 months or so now and no probs.

You can even choose your own number if you don't want to transfer your old one. I think now, you have to pay a little more for a really outstanding number, but its a great thing for those with poor memories, ie you could incorporate your birthdate/house numbers into your new mobile number!!

Shows as secure in firefox for me. Little padlock verifies this

asda still beat this deal im afraid! Ive been using asda mobile for months now and have had no probs with coverage as they use vodafone network, so i wouldnt change! but hey £5 free credit is worth using:)

You don't have to put card details in.
Just ordered one

Indeed, order one but Don't put card details in.

Banned

what phone number do i put in...the one i want?

voting hot.
however , the ASDA sim is by far the better deal.
esp here in northern ireland where T-MOBILE i would presume has limited coverage.
anyone thinking of this as their mobile provider?
i couldn't recommend ASDA highly enough , runs on vodaphone and their customer support is about the best ive ever experienced.

It does appear to be secure using firefox. Padlock is deffo there.

baldmonk: I've tried IE7 and Firefox 3.0.6, and the page isn't secure.
In each browser, if you right click the page background and then:
a. IE7: select properties, you can see "Connection: Not Encrypted "
b. Firefox: View Page Info, you can see "Connection Not Encrypted"

So - it's not encrypted. i don't know why you can see a padlock ...

How silly of me. My mistake. I was just going through the normal sign up page. :whistling: lol

On a side note, a while back ikea mobile was giving £10 credit with a £10 top up.

They also have £10 free credit for referrals.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

I never put any card details in - I don't know if I will need to do that when it comes to qualify for the fiver? But got one for me and the missus, same address different names (strangely enough) went through no probs.
Cheers!

Not true, you can opt out of automatic top up.

be a little careful as once you enter the card details it tops up automatically once the credit drops below £3

Yes you can opt out. I've got one of these sims and use it in a T Mob handset so I know this for a fact.
The only thing is though, is that if you dont have auto top up you cant use the phone abroad. Auto top up will top up whatever amount you register for when your credit gets down to £3

There is an " opt out " option to automatic top up.

As Biker Jeff says, the only downside is that if you opt out, you cannot use it abroad.

Just ordered one.
Thanks. :thumbsup:

If you go throught the normal sign up page (i.e. not the speacial offer URL) you get the option of getting a free Gold number (supposedly a memorable number) but you have to top up with £10. Is there any option to get this Gold number using this special offer?
