SIM only 30 day rolling contract 100 min, unlimited texts and internet £15 a month @ T-Mobile

Found 31st Jul 2010
i have found a kind of loop hole in the T-Mobile contract system.

normally on sim only for £15 a month you would get 350 mins, 300 texts and no internet. but t mobile do these things called 'flexible boosters' and one is included in every contract so you could choose the unlimited internet one.

But, for £5 a month extra you get an extra booster. So, if you buy the £10 30 day contract you get 100 min, 100 texts and no internet, but if you add the unlimited text booster and unlimited internet if will only cost you £5 extra.

So, for £15 a month on a 30 day rolling contract you get 100 mins, unlimited text and unlimited internet (fair usage of 1gb normally or 3gb if you have an android phone)

Hopefully i've explained that well enough

icey, not to mention t-mobile's idea of 'unlimited' roughly translates to 'rather restricted'

"not everyone wants to be on tesco"

Phone network snobbery?!

Actually, speaking as someone who tethers their android to their laptop on occasion, T only limit your up/down speeds, rather than charging you additional for going over the fair use, and many if not most other carriers have similar or lower "fair" use rates (tesco included)

Not saying this is super hot (I pay £20 get 500mins, unlim txt+net solo deal) but it's better than being made out.

I am surprised this is currently -105 That is way colder than I woould have guessed to start with. Is it really that bad?

I tether my Nokia to my laptop from time to time where needed with T-mobile, firstly it is against their T&Cs as you are supposed to pay extra to tether, secondly once you go over their "unlimited" 1gb it pops up with a nag screen regularly advising you that you have gone over and this gets in the way quite a bit. So if you plan to buy to tether look at a separate data subscription plan. As for those saying people don't want to be on tesco because it gets only 500mb of data, surely on a phone you cannot ever manage to max this sort of limit. Even with youtube type videos, on a handset is pretty barmy, the fun wears off other than for the occasional use for something from the likes of Digg.

As for this deal sorry cold from me as has been said if you want to use it for a phone you get more from Tesco and this is the standard advertised deal T-mobile have been kicking around for a while now.

This isn't special, I'm currently on a 24 month contract for the nokia 6303 with T-Mobile. £10 a month for 100 mins unlimited txts and free evening and weekend calls to any network! Alos in response to andiejn comment, their idea of unlimited it 999999 texts a month

It is easy to bust data limits if you stream, such as with tvcatchup, where you can watch live TV shows. OK, viewing on a smaller screen rather than a TV isn't so great, but it still gets you through if you want to kill some time, or watch a film etc.

Thanks to the poster for posting this, I'm not with TMob atm,but do want to switch away from networks that have been cutting their data limits down, after calling it - dishonestly - unlimited etc, when it obviously wasnt. Tmob seem one of the better ones for giving more in their data allowance levels.

You're wrong, my unlimited texts on tmobile is 9,999,999 texts a month with a FUP that texts are not sent to more than 200 different numbers in a month.

T-mobile = T-nosignal

My work phone is with them and the reception is next to useless, and I travel the UK so its not where I live ( although my phone can't get any signal in my house in rural Birmingham !! )

Surprised this is as cold as it is. T-Mobile are now the ONLY UK network that categorically state they will not charge you for exceeding the data "limit", if you do, all they do is slow your speed. Every other network WILL charge you!

Your stuck on slow speeds anyway with the internet booster it only goes upto 384 kbps you wont get faster HSDPA speeds.

Giffgaff's 10 quid bundle spanks this all over the place (same number of minutes, same for texts, actual unlimited for data, free calls/texts to other giffgaffers, much cheaper for international calls). For 15 quid you get 300 minutes. Oh, and the bundles are half price atm. Voted cold. Very, very cold.

I simply disagree that any policy that has a 'fair use' LIMIT should ever be called UNlimited. if the limit 1s 500mb, 1gb, 50gb, whatever, say it, then it's easier to compare, drop the BS.

I really can't emphasise this enough. I got compensation off T-mobile as a consequence if their misselling of services.
