Samba Mobile - Double Data Live until end of Thursday 28th February

Found 28th Feb 2013
I know this isn't really a deal so sorry if some people find it annoying. Just thought I'd share.

Samba are giving their users double data today for each ad you watch (7mb instead of the normal 3.5mb). It most likely won't change your overall credit that much but something extra is always good.

If you're a Samba users you most likely know about this anyway (via email received today) but some of my Samba using friends didn't so I thought others might not also.

I have given heat, in a way that I hope others see my further comment

I got this a few weeks ago, at first it seems great, but really is a bit crap to be honest.

And double data day has been rubbish so far, chrome not working, Firefox is VERY slow, and as usual, hardly any ads on ipad, think I am about to give up on Samba, just get a three 3G three month sim from amazon for about a tenner, or use the old tmobile sim

There will always be a limitation on the iPad its due to the lack of flash
I watch the adds in a MacBook with safari its usually ok.
The adds were really slow last night I guess everyone was waiting for the double data to start but there's been a good load of adds so its worth having if you've got the time.

I got one of their sims a while ago and it no longer works, and can't even login to my account. Can't even do a password reset as it says account does not exist, even though they are still sending me promo emails to the same address. They have not responded to my support request a week ago. My advice would be to not waste your money on the sim and time watching adverts.

So you normally have to play 285 ads to get a gb of data!

Not having Flash is a failing of the Apple product, not on Samba's part.....

Yeah, to be honest though, that's not too bad, you can click and play them, but silence them, or do something on another browser, if I could have worked my way through 100 ads a day I would have done

My issue is the lack of ads, many days only a few, and to the folk above the chrome and Firefox was on my laptop (chrome seemed good most days, yet for their special offer day it would not work properly, wasted about two hours getting 20mb !)

I purchased 2 sims for £1 each but only use one at a time on my iPad. I earn credit on them simultaneously by watching ads on Chrome and Firefox and it works perfectly. When one sim is running low of data, I swap it for the other.

I'm 'watching' ads as I type this and it's working perfectly. There is a issue though of there not being many ads to watch on an iPad (but I don't use my iPad to watch ads anyway so no problem for me) and at times a more general lack of ads even on a computer. A few days last week they only had 2 ads to show, which isn't enough.

Still working out at 1G of data per month except Jan when it took a dive and I think that's not bad as 3 had great data here I'm sitting the school carpark using my iPad with my samba data to access this so I am quite happy with the deal

The service works great for me - never had a shortage of ads to watch on my laptop but I can see there are fewer on my iPad. But as the guy above says this is due to Apple not supporting Flash player. I've been with them since last summer and have probably saved about £100 in that time so can't complain.

Worth checking your junk folder. I emailed them once and found their reply marked as spam.

Thanks, I did get the auto reply straight to my inbox but nothing since.
I don't have spam rules setup so my spam folder is empty.
I have managed to create another account with the same credentials so it looks like my account has been deleted for some reason.
That still leaves me leaves me with a dead sim.
