Ok , for the non believers out there ....



Thanks for posting that, Josh, as it is irritating some 'non-believers' and those who insist they know better post here to acuse others of telling untruths or 'trolling' when all we are trying to do is offer those in the position we found ourselves a way forward.

Happy we got it sorted and hope others find the information in this thread helpful.

Well , i don't really care if you believe me or not but i would still like to help you or anybody else in the same situation .

Maybe try and send a link of this tread to your MP , to be more exact i have been in contact with someone that works for my MP so i don't know how much the MP was involved but i imagine it was the institution of the MP that intervened .

Not sure how either £5 bundle lasts for three months. At 9p, the "£5 Top up free" bundle that offers £5 additional credit and 250 MB data lasts for two months and would be 111 minutes or texts. The "Flex £5 Free" bundle that offers £15 additional credit and 500 MB data lasts for just one month and would be 222 minutes or texts.

At this time The People's Operator's £5 for 500 minutes + 500 texts + 500 MB data seems more attractive, as does the Post Office's £5 bundle for 250 minutes + 3000 texts + 500 MB data -- for those of us avoiding 3 and its lack of adequate coverage.

(Of course I'm writing this over 2 months after the deal was posted.)

thanks for posting op. looks a fairly good deal for some. The peoples operator are offering more minutes and texts for the same price

I can smell ovivo brand here

The standard rates of 9p for calling, texting and internet look off-putting but when you take into account all the extras you get when topping-up it may make sense. I' m gonna stick with my 123 Three tariff because I'm an ultra-low user so the savings wouldn't be worth the hassle for me.

Recommend these guys. I put a Kontact sim card in my dad's phone as he rarely uses it and it was locked to Vodafone. No problems at all with them. I even considered changing the whole family over to them, as their rewards points are quite impressive - I worked out that with what we spend on mobiles we could get enough in Ryanair vouchers for a couple of free holidays a year! I stuck with the 3 unlimited data package instead in the end though for overseas use.

I didn't even get to activate my Ovivo SIM before they went belly up but … I didn't even get to activate my Ovivo SIM before they went belly up but I'll have a punt for £5 - cheers OP.Does the 1GB get filled up every month?edit: also, is this £5 per month or is this a 1-off £5 payment?

I'll reply to this myself, in case anyone else wanted to know...
The 1GB allowance gets topped up with each top-up and lasts for 1 month.
Anything after that month will eat into your credit until you drop below £1 - at which point, your credit will automatically top-up by £5, giving you another 1GB for the following month.
Topping up twice in 1 month will NOT give you another 1GB allowance.

What other things can you pay for?

Will Kontakt work for PSN credit?They're not officially supported



It DOES work - BUT, it requires £5 + £1 (premium text charge) to do it - so you would have to top up by £1 to make use of the £5. Unfortunately, you can only top up in £5s.

I sent the text and I ended up with a balance of £4 and I could only top up £5 which makes it pointless. Unless somebody figures out how to top Kontakt sim cards by £1, then it cannot be used for PSN top up.

Saying that... the credit can be used to pay for other things ;).

titchyyyyy

They only do normal sims + micro sims. You would have to cut the sim card … They only do normal sims + micro sims. You would have to cut the sim card down to nano which is easy to do.These could be a cheap way of topping up PSN accounts by £5 since the free £25 isn't account balance (Sims are free via Facebook). I've ordered around 10 of them to test this method anyway!

I've had the Flex 0 sim for about 6 months now , and they started to charge for all calls out of the initial £20 credit , still not bad though as i've not spent a penny so far and used the sim to call in different countries as well .

In relation to your last comment, that's a valid question and definitely … In relation to your last comment, that's a valid question and definitely worth looking into before committing to this sim as your main everyday mobile network provider. Like I said, I'm treading cautiously and use this sim in parallel with my main sim by Three - the latter would be a deal breaker though.

It is a topic I feel very strongly about - how can it be fair that a consumer must carry a lookup table around so that they know what numbers are included in their contract? How can it be fair that your granny/best mate/other half may all be on a network that your network can decide to exclude days into a 2 year deal? I tried to get Martin Lewis to look into this, but to no avail. Bit like restaurant having a buy one get one free deal, then only telling you when you query the change that it didn't include 1 in 10 items on the menu & that you should have checked their website before you ordered.

I could even see past it if it was only IOM/CI, because that would be a manageable list, but my reading is that the networks now word it that they can exclude any MVNO without notice. As for OFCOM, they introduced 03 numbers to make it clearer; how can they allow it to be the case that 07ABC is UK, but 07BCA isn't?

Not sure if you are accusing me of scaremongering, criticising, making invalid remarks without any substance, etc.,

I've signed up to the free sim offer, subsequently received a … I've signed up to the free sim offer, subsequently received a confirmation email that the sim will be shortly on its way. Will update as and when. Other than entering my name and address no additional information is requested and thus not much to lose. This sim will operate concurrently with my main everyday sim to the point I'm comfortable to switch. It's a free sim with free credit, don't understand at all the cold votes. Similarly, when OVIVO was first posted the number of negative comments and scaremongering deterred many, despite being legitimate. I'm guessing the same applies here. I for one will proceed with caution but looking at the previous post, folk were criticising, making invalid remarks without any substance.

Not sure if you are accusing me of scaremongering, criticising, making invalid remarks without any substance, etc., but I made a factual comment; I saw the offer (shock horror do not have a FB account), so asked the wife to try it, she liked both the offer page & the company one and heard nothing.

Someone said that they charge you money to get a PAC should you ever want to move on; I can't say I have looked for this in the T&Cs, but it would be against OFCOM regulations (only acceptable reason to decline is unable to satisfactorily confirm identity).

One other angle to check (and this is something you should not have to do & is a condemnation of the other networks, not Kontakt) is will calls to the sim be included/normal rate for other network users (e.g. do EE/O2/Voda/3 count them as a UK network)?

Unfortunately this is only for calls, as both text and data are charged. However this is offset with the free £20 account credit:)



Good to know, thanks for the comment. Hopefully more folk can benefit from this 'deal' albeit very chilly
