Looks good to me get a 4g mifi on one month contract and cancel straight away

Thanks to Crossbow: ​​So, just to confirm, this deal is actually £24.99 in total with the device & 5Gb data? Not like the op posted as a one-off £9.99 deal/payment?

No small print showing on the mobile version, if you take it away from store how would they know who you are to ask you to return it ?

Do you actually have a link to that small print or is it just speculation?
As far as I understand you would be buying the MiFi for £9.99 and agreeing to a 1 month contract.
Be warned though the last one of these I bought from Curry's/PC World was a real pain in the @rse to get the monthly contract cancelled and they ended up taking payment for 3 months before I got it finally got it sorted and refunded.

They wont let you walk out of the shop without filling in a contract? Be warned don't take it for granted, that's how people get in a mess with mobile phone operators and they have themselves to blame by being greedy!

So you don't know for sure and it's just speculation, like I said before I've already bought one and I still own it after cancelling the contract after a month.

Even if they are wrong about the minimum 12 months to be able to keep the device and I'm not saying they are. You have to give 30 days notice so the minimum cost isn't 9.99 it's 9.99 plus 1 months tariff, so 24.99 with 15gb for month.

Ralph888 has just killed this deal stone cold without any proof to back up his comments, which by the way are pure rubbish unless he can provide proof.

Yes that is correct and should be in the title, but you have a choice of 3 different monthly plans and if I remember correctly there is a cheaper monthly plan for 2gb for £10

Think your own comment about it being pain in the **** to get out of the contract and getting charged for three months initially will have killed it somewhat too.

If EE were still doing their 100gb sims it'd boost popularity of getting mobile router.

There has been cheaper in the past, used to be a 1gb tariff but ones listed for this are


- 20 GB - £23 per month

- 15 GB - £20 per month

- 5 GB - £15 per month

And I misread that last one before so you'd only get 5gb for the 24.99

Its not a deal unless you check you dont get caught out by any small print. If you reread what I put
"Have you checked the small print? Mifi to be returned if contract not kept for 12 months?" Buyer beware!

The best option in my opinion is what I now do after selling my Mifi, buy a dual sim phone and use a data only pay as you go in the second sim slot, this can be used for tethering and also the phones data.
It saves carrying two devices around.

not on three , tethering not always allowed. (Read the small print, [ where available])

Tethering is allowed on a data sim. Just buy one of the 12GB of preloaded data sims for £23 or so from MyMemory etc. Stick that in your second sim slot, and you have Feel at Home and tethering for 12 months (assuming you don't use all of the data in that time).

But that drains the battery much faster than dedicated device

It actually isn't that power intensive. The rate of battery drain is fairly similar to on a dedicated mifi - but the difference being that you don't need to worry about having two devices charged. Just get a battery pack for your phone, and charge it whilst it is doing its mifi thing. So much more convenient than carting around a phone and a mifi.

So cart about a battery pack instead. Yeah makes loads of sense. Far more convenient

You seem to be devoid of imagination....

A dual sim phone with a data sim built in means you never have to cart around a mifi. You have your data connection with you permanently....and can share it whenever you want. If you have a phone with a modern Snapdragon or similar chipset - or with a good sized battery, then your phone will outlast a mifi when working as a hotspot. But of course, it only takes a wall charger or a USB battery pack to keep your phone fully charged...

I guess you just want to justify buying a device that you'll rarely have with you. For the rest of us, a mobile hotspot via our phones makes far more sense.

The deal has been active all day, who's been to store and collected one and happy to sign up without the intention of cancelling or otherwise, must be someone??

Can this unit be unlocked right away and thus stop Three from deactivating it? (ie without putting anyof their SISM in the mifi)

I lack imagination yet you think everyone is suited with your usage. Hmm ok.

just remember most* dual sim phones can only do 3G/4G on one sim which forces the other sim to be in 2G mode only ( so rules out using 2 x Three network Sims.

Moto G 4th gen dual sim does 3g/4g on both sims at same time.

Yes that is correct but works fine for my needs.
I use a Talkmobile payg sim in slot 1 for my texts and voice minutes @ 10p per hour and that gets a signal everywhere on 2g and has much better coverage than 3g
Sim slot 2 has a '3' data sim in it for all my phone data and tethering needs running on 3g or 4g where available.

Just stopped by Currys to see what the deal is.
£9.99 + £2.95 card check (refundable) + £15 for 2 months as you have to wait 15 days to cancel.
(The manager said someone tried to cancel the next day and was told, it can't happen)
They need address, bank details etc. so if you mess the deal up they have you by the b***s.
Didn't get to asking if 3 would want the unit back.

Hope this sheds some light on the subject

Honestly do not believe what any chimp in Curry's/PC World tells you.
If it's a 30 day contract then you have to give 30 days notice and you can give the notice on the day off connection.
The rest of the stuff about bank and card details is correct though.

Bought one, paid £9.99, selected 20gb data, phoned 3 some 2 days later, gave 30 days notice, notice accepted, no request for return of anything. Will post if anything detrimental happens.

Bought one for £9.99 took the 5GB tariff. £2.95 card check (refundable) , filled out contract, came home switched on to set it up, thenphoned 3 and cancelled contract.... all within an hour. The store manager said he done exactly the same for his holidays.

This is a 1 month rolling contract. You are not obliged to be tied in for anything more than a month. 3 said it will all be cancelled within 72hrs.

So, I have a 4G MiFi to replace my old 3G one which the battery has now given up, for the bargain price of £24.99 and 5GB of data to use if I want (or maximum cost of £39.99 if the 72hr period takes it into a second month but I'd obviously have 10GB of data to use)

You can also get 3 months of free Deezer.
