​Was that before or after all your data was sold to an Indian Scam Centre?
ID mobile

personally would go for IDmobile offer

it has more data, more texts less monthly line rental and monthly contract

but guess it depends on whats best reception where you are

Not forgetting more complaints !
Looks good. Can be capped at £2 a month over, and also £7.50 from topcashback. Ideal for kids contracts
£5 for 1GB of data and 250mins on a decent network is hard to beat. Heat from me.

just set the smart cap (over allowance spending limit) to £2, so the most you would get billed
is £7 if you have ignored the near limit warnings and also not monitored your account online
£3 Quidco as well

Thanks
I've got this deal. Previously I had a plan with unlimited calls/texts and loads of data but when I looked at my monthly bills it turned out I was only using a small amount of that so changed to Plusnet and now saving £20+ per month!
Little or no 4G coverage in my area with either PlusNet *or* IDMobile. I need a deal that uses the Vodafone network - any suggestions?
Nice deal; heated.
Beware of PlusNet - riddled with back-office issues and they have zero customer support ability if something goes wrong. My phone port process took 7 weeks - during that whole time I did not have access to my phone number, and they had ZERO idea on how to fix it and when it would be rectified. Only got attention after repeatedly emailing the CEO who managed to get somebody to try help (and even that took 4 weeks to sort out).

Think TalkTalk uses Vodafone
Are Plusnet generally slow to on board new customers? Put an order in yesterday and heard nothing since, bar an email saying 'we're processing your order ring us in a few days if you hear nothing' - no order number or anything.

Loathed to ring them if their answering times are anything like their broadband team.

Iv'e rung Plusnet a few times always got through quickly and had any problems sorted quickly.
Can this be capped for kids like tesco and three?
DAMNOME

Can this be capped for kids like tesco and three?


Yes, but the lowest capping limit is £2, so this means that you won't go over by any more than £2 over the £5 monthly charge. So your bills will not be more than £7.
I think I spoke to them on the phone when I wanted to port my number
had no issues at all.
I've recently switched from virgin mobile for this deal. Took a about 5 days for the Sim card to arrive but number porting was straight forward and reception better with plusnet even though they both use EE!
iD Mobile are offering 1.5GB + 250 mins + 5000 texts for £5/month also

Just joined plusnet so took out the £7.50 for 2GB a month, but when i looked at the T@C there was an offer via USwitch using Plusnet for 3GB a month for £8.50 rolling contract, handy for some, great coverage on EE with 3GB under a tenner, showing as £8 TCashback too

I'm getting calls every single day from 'Mike'/'John'/'Helen' from India telling me I have a problem with my TalkTalk account! I'm no longer with TT. I'm ashamed to write that the last caller was told to F OFF!

I've been with Plusnet Mobile since they took over from (?) and had no issues whatsoever. Previous same employees (UK based)...helpful and quick to solve any problem (not had any in last year 'tho )

yes not everyone is going to have a bad experience, but those that do and the comments they are making made me think twice, but as with everything do your own research then decide
I'd stay away from Plusnet, I placed an oder on Wednesday only just had the order confirmation through. I needed the SIM quickly, so figured i'd cancel it. Rang them, can't cancel an order. LOL.

Avoid.

Wow you have some high expectations, you need to allow longer than that oO

I had an order email the same day, then confirmation the day after, 2 days later sim arrived, activated following day

+1 I was an existing customer and I decided to stick with them when moving house for simplicity. Took them 6 weeks to turn on a phone line that had no technical errors. It was just their internal systems that were shocking. Also first call on the new number was from an accident claims company so I think they were keener to sell on my number than to make it work.
