When there are so many 30 day deals around this price makes no sense signing a 12 month deal with these guys.

£20 and £14 possibly available through topcashback

When there are so many 30 day deals around this price makes no sense signing a 12 month deal with these guys.

I disagree, searching around for 8GB (currently 4GB) this is the best deal without having to do redemptions or getting cash back extra. So it's a hot deal surely

With what's app messaging excluded from the usage and unused data rollover it's a fair price

It's a fair price, agreed. But if you want to test the waters for signal in your area then Plusnet with their 30 day sims are ideal to make sure EE signal masts are doing the business before signing a 12 month deal.

Say for example go to plusnet for 2 months, then when you are happy with signal for voice and data speeds in and around your area, go over to a Virgin/EE deal.

Just be careful with that approach as PN signal will not be as good as VM. They all pay EE to use the service, some more than others and it's known fact that PN are back of the queue when it comes to access, VM get preferential access to the service over PN. EE will then be the best and best speeds overall.

BT own PN but prices are cheaper with PN because they spend less with EE.

How'd you manage that?

I was on a similar deal with VM, on the face of it, it is a hot deal but in reality it's crap, because important calls get bypassed to your voicemail when you have full signal, and on top of that you won't get a message to say you have the (important) voice mail until hours later. This happened with more than one phone, so I know it was the network, in the end I left and I've not looked back.
I'm not a Virgin hater as I still have the TV and Broadband package, but I wouldn't touch their mobile network with a bargepole.

Surely you're better getting a payg sim to try out? Plenty of buy an EE sim from the EE eBay shop for a quid with a fiver credit preloaded rather than paying a couple of months line rental.

How

just moved 3 mobiles to plusnet from virgin and service is uk based great.when i tried to get virgin to match plusnet deal it was no go and promised to phone back with better deals and never did.Advantage of 30 day rolling is great rather than a year with virgin

Is the data rollover on the whole 8GB?

Picked this deal up a couple days ago. BT raised my sim price by a fiver after I left their god awful broadband service, so £21 for a 20GB contract didn't seem too appealing given I use an average of 5GB.

Data rollover is the key thing here. I also like how their phone contracts are set up the same way as O2 refresh.

Rollover is only for the next 30 days and ONLY on the contract amount of data ( so if they quadrupal the data fro 1gb to 4gb, only 1 gb rolls over )

I thought as much, at least everyone will be aware, thanks

Good point, at least something gets rolled over

I went for the £9 a month contract, £18 quidco tracked making it £7.50 a month, good deal to me

Not 8GB but ID Mobile has 6GB 1000/5000 for £12 with DR and it's a 30 day rolling. That's better than this one since you can jump off whenever if you see a better deal. Don't know about others but i'd never go back to the 12 month contract trap after escaping it. Love my freedom

Really don't go with ID Mobile - just read reviews on Trustpilot. They are the worst of the worst if you ever need support, exceed your data limit or want to change tariffs.

Go with PlusNet if you want 30 days rolling but not ID. The virgin deal is a good one and support is good once you get through. They wont lie to you or scam you like ID mobile do.

How did you get the extra £2 off?

How did you get the extra £2 off?

Yes do share your knowledge

What about dear old giffgaff?

How did you get the extra £2 off?

I've just got off the phone and was told the £2 off is if you get a phone too. I explained people were posting about the discount but the lady with the helium voice was adamant it was not available any other way. ​

dave720 m ago

What about dear old giffgaff?


If you want total freedom then go for it since it's not even a 30 day rolling, so you can join today and quit tomorrow if you wanted to but value for money-wise the Plusnet and IDM deals are way better also from experience I can tell you GiffGaff's 4G is horrendous and shouldn't be called 4G.

If anyone on Three is thinking of switching, I just got 600mins and 8GB from Three for £10 monthly rolling. This is the advanced plan with tethering and feel at home.

Just remember you get what you pay for, EE are absolutely shocking!

Any of the other major networks. EE worst of the lot, read the reviews on Trust Pilot etc

How did you get that?

They are offering me 4gb with 2500 mins for £8 as I am a current virgin media customer, however I am not fooled virgin.

There customer service is shocking though, get passed round the houses and they inflate tariffs as the end of every term.

Think I will look elsewhere

I got the 4gb 2500 mins unlimited text deal 2 weeks ago.£8 had to ring and speak to a manager.

I got it via retentions. At first they said there were no deals with 8gb + tethering for under £14, but after giving me my PAC, I called back again the next day (couldn't find anything better than what I already had!) and another person gave me this deal for £10. YMMV

How did you get that?

Anyone know if the quidco is still available for existing customers? Ts&Cs don't say it's not..? I'm currently on their 1gb of 3g for £5/m so looks like it could be worth the upgrade.

Tempted by this for me and my wife, our EE contracts are up this month and I'm a VM customer, I know EE won't offer anything like this and we're still happy with current phones so sim only might be good for us but will we notice any difference in service from EE to VM?

Very tempted by the deal, heat added. Although their Trust Pilot reviews are a little off putting.

have a look at john lewis a hotdealers favour on trust pilot and then tell us what you think of trustpilotm saying that after having issues with virgins customer service recently I wont be using them for a long time. Was past to retentions after an issue, spoke to the customer service person who totally ignored me, when I asked if she was going to reply she said no, passed to a manager, who then told me all companies had to offer only 12 month deals after a change by OFCOM which was a total lie.
