This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

8GB for £8 is back! Pretty popular last time, and not a bad offer if you are looking for a sim under £10.

They did this to me as well. It would have to be a much better deal than this to get me back again
Just done this to me as well increased my sim plan by 50% so I've left today should be my last day

Fine for me. Horses for courses I suppose


Moved from VM to 3.

Worst SIM decision I've ever made

I've been with 3 for 5 years, and I e noticed more and more that the data speeds are not good, and in many cases when I'm out and about non existent...

I'm just not keen to give up my unlimited data for £9...

Yes but did you see their charges for International Calls? God forbid you have to ring even to the EU...
They also have no international calls bundle. Pointless service really.
I have tried to get this offer 4 times in the last 48hrs........everything goes through then right at the end it says oops somethings gone wrong try later !!!! I even tried it without going through a cashback site still no joy

My horse is showing its age on my 3 course, he's slowing up and keeps stopping, even though he looks alright (full bars)

Wow that’s rapid the network that brought most of the 5G spectrum can’t even get 3G right never mind 4G.
Maybe they needed 2G to make everything work

And now they have Coronavirus to blame for not even answering the phone! I have 2 SIMs with u/l data (one for home BB & one for family member) both together cost £9/mth - think if it was £9 each I would ditch.

I tweeted them recently about getting extra data on another 8GB sim I lent to a vulnerable colleague to allow him to work from home - their answer: buy a booster! Pfft! Cheers!

Would this deal get the free 10GB & is that 10GB/mth?
I registered etc online but now am told I've not done so.
Yesterday at 12:37 I ordered a Sim Only - 5000 Minutes, Unlimited Texts 8GB data for £8 per month
I tried several times to order online and after giving bank details etc the order was cancelled.
I assume this for new customers only? as I'm not seeing this offer when I attempt to change my plan

I got a Three contract for my wife with unlimited data for £10.

I'm now enduring 2 years of daily nagging
Worst provider next to three
Been with Virgin for years and never had a problem with CS or coverage, maybe I have been lucky
Managed to get the deal last week, switched using a PAC code to switch and has been seemless so far. Cashback has tracked too at £20.
I wouldn't touch them with a bargepole. I had a similar deal with a 12 month contract, they put the price up by 50 percent after 3 months. I took them to arbitration and won. They had to give back the above contract money and 25 pounds in compensation.

Good for you. More people should complain and take action, if service not satisfactory. Perhaps then, they would stop taking customers for granted.
