Samba closing down.
Dear Customers,

Sadly, Samba has had to take the difficult decision to close, primarily due to high and increasing - and therefore unsustainable - data costs. We hope that you, our customers, have been happy with the value exchange received over the last two years. Below you will find answers to FAQs

any similar option for a nanosim that can be put in ipad air for very, very occasional use?

That's because most dual sim phones have 1 3G and 1 2G connection.

Damm thought I could use this in my dual sim phone with my PAYG 3 sim card but it doesn't! They both work fine on their own but put them together and only one of them works at a time. Just a word of warning...

Thanks, never knew that, just found out I have 4.8gb



That's a lot of credit you have that you didn't even know about

Probably about 2-3 days

13.9gb now for me, I don't use it much! I watch ads for nectar points too, you only get about 100 nectar points a week but it all adds up.

You can also download the battery plugin and put the mouse over that too and it will tell you your credit. The battery plugin seems a bit pointless to me but they keep nagging you to install it so I did.Those Ad Views and MB earned are just the total stats that all users have earnt I think.

wounder how long it will take me to get 5GB ???

Same for me but refused to let me create account as my email address had already been used - and that was during the purchase process. Contacted them they let me reset password but it still wouldn't let me into account. Got a refund

It depends what your downloading in those couple of hours, can you explain a bit more?

You get 3.5MB of data per ad that you watch.
Samba Mobile Broadband sim card for only £1.00, USB dongle for £20.00 - Free mobile broandband for life

Samba Mobile offer free mobile broadband using the three network in the UK, users watch advertisements in return for data credit which can be used on your iPad or laptop to browse … Read more

some of the ads have an Get Samba Credit button (that does expire if you do not click on it) so at least they know they are getting the audio for some of them (most allow the sound to be muted thought, that option to mute should be disabled)

funny there billing system is as its still based on 17% vat when it emails you, and the £20 dongle is sent as me paying for an £25 one (paypal was £20) think the VAT is incorrect on that as well

not got me sims yet and i am nearly at 300MB (i only need about 10mb an month for the tasks i am wanting to use the sims for)

but i would prefer to use ovivomobile as i can use 2g only for the tasks i need to use(battery life is far better under 2g), as it uses vodaphone that seems to have best 2g coverage that compares to o2 as well
downside with ovivomobile is it would be £10 persim, and not sure how the free monthly stuff works (is there prerequests like making chargeable calls or topup after so many months)
downside with Sambamobile is it uses Three network (50% indoor coverage) and 3g only so worse battery life and no 2g data network to fall back onto (watching the ads is really none issue)

promo code still works at the time of posting (nice site this is)

Are you clicking on the green box underneath the ad once it has finished?

It says Get Your Samba Credit.

I can only assume that if they're not making money from this business model it's because they're being undervalued by the firms that use them. Who can't name at least 9 of the brands from that page off the top of their head?

exactly, this is the same subliminal effect as a billboard on a wall or roadside, no one has to look at them but they work. Just clicking on the advertiser's icon is already the same as glancing a billboard and plus an acknowledgement.

Yes I have the same problem. I just run one while surfing then come back to it to start another. It still plays and credits the account. If they activate a "Claim Credit" for 30 seconds after the ad is finished I would be stuffed!

They've really clamped down now.

Not able to start adverts in multiple tabs.

Adverts have started to dry up over the last few days, 0-50MB/day now.
They seem to have just added new adverts today (Nike, Trainline etc) but can only be viewed once.

samba mobile has closed down today

I saw a post a few days ago where you could get this for £2.50 but it was removed as spam as it was a referral. Quite frankly I don't care if it was a referral it was cheaper - does anyone have a referral link I can use? Cheers!

Honestly depends on what you look at, you can't really average it.

Use Opera in turbo mode for stretching out your data usage, it compresses websites just like the Opera mobile browser.

Been using this on an old o2 E160 for a while now, good mobile backup, or if EE coverage is crap and three is decent. Easy to build up a few gig for nothing.

Not as many ads post Olympics, but still enough to keep a healthy reserve, fair trade for a few minutes of Command/Control clicking and hitting mute.

£5 now but use MSE2 to get £2 off, going to give it a try now that the "three" data sims are creeping up in price

I was told the trial was exclusive and lasted only for 2 months..


Exclusive yes, and time limited, too (until end of February).

But even though I got in, I have to say that I am not impressed. The system is very intransparent, the amount of ads you have to watch seems to increase all the time (even if you don't use the mobile broadband), and if you watch the ads on the mobile internet, you will quickly hit your monthly limit (suddenly revealed to be 2GB).

I like something free as much as anybody here, but I am not sure this is worth the hassle.
