I had this then figured that i just need 3p on O2 to get the called to ring me back on sip. I only use 1 quid if that now so good if you need it but theyre are so many free ways of calling and free wifi that if your savvy you don't need this but hey have some heat
Looks like you can get this for £3.99 via uSwitch at the moment.

No, that's a different deal. 500 mins, unltd texts and 500Mb data for £3.99. This one has been available for ages.
How is the network/connection for this?

Three U.K., in my experience regionally* better for call quality than EE even off the same shared base stations as Three seem to have loads of backhaul data capacity for supporting Go Binge streaming, where as 2/3G call quality seems to suffer due to others data use off base stations on EE, 4G Calling/VoLTE is appalling quality on EE, worse than 2/3G breakups (voice is sent as codecs in data packets), hopefully BT will eventually sort it out, but then it is BT (we will say no more!).

*central Scotland, Fife, Tayside & Highlands.
I have been on it for about 3 months, no problems.

There's no such thing as 2g with three Hutchison abandoned the 2g roaming agreements years ago, personally I've found three to be appaling in buildings and it's this lack of 2g that causes it. They do a percil like rebrand super voice this and supervoice that but it hangs around them like fleas . I have a gold number and because I can't take data reward from three I rate O2 321 effort over threes anyday

I said EE 2G. It’s not the 2G, Three 4G 800MHz is far superior to 2100mhz 3G, if you can lock down to 4G then hopefully it stays on 800mhz band 3 and not the 1800mhz 4G EE was forced to sell off ( to its network MBNL backhaul partner Three) problem is 1800mhz will be in built up areas and indoor penetration is much better on 800mhz.

Turn on VoLTE/4G Calling and locking down to 4G may help if you can in your network settings, handset dependent.

There's no penetration if there's no 2g signal. My mate went on three's data reward and now I can't ring him in a building. Volte is a rip off any self respectable phone owner has a sip client with a freevoipdeal sip account at penny a minute. There's no way I would use minutes on a contract when your network isn't providing the service that's just nuts. No volte service works in a building with no WiFi anyway

Nonsense 2G in U.K. mainly runs on lower 800/900mhz as does 4G and that’s penetrating, 1800mhz 2/4G gives better ‘outdoor capacity in built up areas.

4G VoLTE isn’t dependent on WiFi nor WiFi Calling.

You pay peanuts for sip/voice via a mobile as your main mobile contact number you can’t complain there’s no signal indoors, text/voice penetration indoors is a lot easier than data.

I’ve a Voda Voxi main, EE and Three sim back ups with also a payg o2 - I have coverage most places on at least 1 sim, and I pay peanuts all in for 110 GB (tetherable) between them all with unlimited mins/texts on all and Voxi Passes & Go Binge streaming, all for less than £1 a day

Now is your lunch meal deal less than £1a day ? Priorities...

I'm too old for voxi it's dear if your not in there age groups

No online registration agechecks anymore, so their age groups don’t exist - Vodafone learnt something and actioned change - for a change

Yeah I saw that after I posted, 10 pound for 4gb ? Yes you get social perks but I spend less than 1 pound a month. Did I mention most of my friends are on messenger and can be messenger called for free. Vodafone closed talkmobile in my view that was a mistake. All the Vodafone locked phones are left in cex unsold far longer than O2 with its 321 rates. Incidentally I have a twin SIM phone with my gold number O2 321 in one side and data reward in the other that is enough for me. If it wasn't for my gold number id make do with an uncredited data reward. You can't have it both ways internet calling whether it's volte or sip is the same.

Not true. VoLTE will have guaranteed QoS (Quality of Service) and will be terminated by your provider via SS7 immediately.

I think that is for 500mb

Guarantees and real life are different, but you knew that right?!? In the end both sip and Volte use the same WiFi there's no magic trick that changes that even if three come out with super duper extra special super voice, lack of 2g is still fleas mate in the end I don't need contract minutes so I've none to use on volte anyway.

VoLTE doesn’t use WiFi, hence the name
Sorry yes I am talking about WiFi calling, Volte relies on 4g which is only good if you have 4g, you still can't make an LTE call if you don't have an LTE signal
Both my kids have had this for nearly 2 years now. Am currently moving one of them to plusnet where he will have 2gb for £6.
