Better still port out


I have ported out then. 5 months charges came up as nothing happened..took many calls and hours (and months) to sort that mess. Never again id mobile! Cheap for a reason.
Edited by: "Rimi" 1st May
I would advise people not to go with them for 2 reasons. Coverage isn’t the best as well as their customer service is horrendous. I was on a plan which they changed without my permission and when asked to speak to manager the adviser hung up and when made compliant they made me wait 2 months for response and wasn’t good enough so i left. If you want a good sim only deal Virgin are doing 5gb, 2500 mins with unlimited text for £9 per month. Go through uswitch website.
What network?

Sorry I've never been charged after a port. How can they charge you for no service seems bizarre. I've got my 3 months free 200 minutes I get off three coming up in august. Not looking forward to porting out. Did it affect your credit status.
Ringing 7777 is free from your handset. I would advise against canx the direct debit and keep calling them for free until they reverse the error debits. If I get three months chew I might have a different outlook on rejoining them especially when O2 are only a quid more for the same minutes
It makes me laugh when people advise other's not to use a specific telecom provider because an issue they had with their customer service department - which company actually has a good one?

From my experience, the worst was the people's operator because they screwed up 2 different contracts and also ballsed-up cancelling one of those. But I've also had multiple issues with tesco mobile.

I've had multiple short term contracts with ID and never had any issues, but that's not to say that they're cs department is either good not bad, I was just fortunate!

Same with me - I eventually cancelled the direct debit. They then withdraw money from my account without authorisation, which they claimed the direct debit mandate allows them to. They also gave me a bad credit rating which I still have 2 years on AND they are still continuing to chase for another month's charges since I cancelled the direct debits.

This for a £8 deal. A mugger would not have stolen that much money from me.

Dont do it. You will be hit with astronomical costs the moment you go over your limit. The way they calculate usage isn't what you think it is and you will see usage shoot up.
Edited by: "fiqqer" 2nd May
A lot of fiction in this thread...

Coverage is as the 3 network so... good in places, not good in others (just like any network).

You can't be hit with 'astronomical' charges, your account will default to a max £5 extra per month if you go over your limit - you have to remove that spending limit yourself.

Customer services have been great with me. English call centre, call answered quickly and have sorted any issues I've had in short order. Better than my experiences with other networks.

I'm not sure exactly how they can mess your credit history up without taking you to county court and winning... I cancelled one of my SIMs a few months ago - zero issues.

I've tethered without issue but YMMV.

STAY away from this company ID mobile runs on three network also customer service is a joke . avoid all cost go with 02 or ee
I'm on the same plan but paying a tenner. Didn't have any issues apart from the patchy internet connection around bridges in London (I know, it's weird).

Not entirely accurate. The default limit on ID Mobile accounts caps is £20. You have to reduce the cap to £5 either online or by phone. I know this to my cost as one of my kids ran up a £20 overspend one month because they forgot to turn on wifi ; though to be fair to ID they wrote off the £15 difference. Never had any problems with them.
Gutted just started a 12 month contract with three last month for £9 but have to mess about claiming cash back every 2 months... this is less data would much prefer this!

That must be a change - I've been a customer for quite a while and when I joined they defaulted all 3 of my accounts to £5. I'm never sure if "Remove limit" means they won't charge you anything or it won't let you overspend at all but thought it was a potentially expensive mistake to make so left it alone.

Coincidentally I'm just setting up a new SIM from them now .

It was a relatively new account - about 6 months ago. I had a previous account with ID which had always had a £5 cap so I didn't think about checking the new account. But, in the event, all it took was one phone call to sort it out. I've no complaints about their CS.
I signed up for the £5 monthly 250 mins, unlimited texts and 1.5GB internet at the end of April. Will probably speak with CS at some point to see if that can be changed to the 2.25GB plan but 1GB per month is usually more than enough for me.

That came with a £5 cap.

The only "fiction" is to suggest that ID Mobile is a competent operator. I was with them for just one month and they double-billed me and then tried to chase me for money after I'd terminated my rolling contract. They are true scum.

Just take a look at what their Facebook visitors say: facebook.com/idm…ge/

I've been with various operators and had many issues which I've had to raise complaints for, even as far as taking them to alternate dispute resolution to get things sorted properly but I had no issues with ID.

I didn't stay with them in the end but when I cancelled my contracts there were no issues at all with my credit file.

I suspect when people say they cancelled their contract and continued to be billed, they actually mean they cancelled their direct debit. This will result in damage to your credit file with late payments and/or defaults listed. It could even result in debt collection.

Never just cancel your direct debit and expect to stop receiving bills, it very rarely works like that.

East ways get a pac code and port the number out to pay and go.Not rocket science.I have the £5 deal as a 2nd line and it's been fine for the last 12 months and bills very accurate.App is brilliant

Smarty mobile (run by 3 network) do unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and and 2gb data for 7.50 a month on 30 day rolling contract. No credit checks. Discount on unused data. No roaming yet afaik but it's on the horizon. Not for everyone with only 2gb but im a low data user with WiFi everywhere so good enough.

Cancel the direct debit.


Don't cancel your DD its the worst thing you can do if you want to muck up your credit record.
I was with ID Mobile a couple of years ago and only left because Three gave me a better deal at the time i am still with Three.
Never had any problems with them and the Custom service was like all the other CS hit and miss but never waited to long.
Never took any extra money out of my account when with them and after i left.

A lot of people don't realize is the contract you sign is a minimum term contract once you get to the end it don't just stop it carries on until you give 30 days notice if at the time you ask for a pac code to move to another network you only have 30 days to use it or your contract doesn't end it will carrie on but once you give the pac code to your new provider your contract automatically finishes.
I was automatically put on a £5 cap but could change it if i wanted to and it looks like thats not changed because i just had a look on there site (Please read below)

Capping is a free feature on all new iD Mobile plans.

It puts a cap (limit) on your monthly spend. So even if you use up an allowance and get charged at our out-of-plan rates, you won't pay more than you can afford.

Your cap can be adjusted between £5 and your credit limit. It's pre-set at £5 (or at your credit limit if your plan is older than 15 November 2017).
