Smarty SIMO - Unlimited mins & texts + 2GB 4G data + £1.25/GB for extra data

Never pay for unused data again!

Three's brand new mobile network just launched.

Unltd mins & texts + 2GB = £7.50
Unltd mins & texts + 4GB = £10
Unltd mins & texts + 8GB = £15

BUT they refund you £1.25/GB that you don't use, and charge you the same for additional data that you do use!

So if you don't use any data, you only pay £5.

Seems pretty good if you never use all your data some months.

(NB: International calling and roaming is not working yet)

    I gather they didn't build their own network so which network do they use

    A good deal, unlimited texts & calls for £5 - I wonder if you can switch data off for young kids and throw the sim in a cheap 3/4G mobile.

    Sorry tired didn't read the whole post. Not allowed to make mistakes. I do apologise
    Looks very clear, decent and honest deal..... very very interesting.....
    Thanks
    Looks good
    Sounds like a good deal.
    Sounds tempting coming from Three 321 PAYG user here...
    do they do credit check?
    Interesting to know what the speeds are like, being the Three network. I find that they are usually the fastest for me; was faster than EE last time I was on the network.

    If it is decent, then I'll make sure I let my friends and family know who are struggling with giffgaff's speeds

    They don't, it is mentioned in the FAQ that you top-up first

    No.

    Don’t want to be tied in? Cancel anytime or change plans monthly.No minimum contract, no credit checks and no surprises at the end of the month. Pay in advance and enjoy the flexibility.
    I wonder if Three’s WiFi calling would work? I need it at home.

    I wonder if Three’s WiFi calling would work? I need it at home.

    I would wager no. MVNO's only offer a small subset of the main carriers features. And to date only the main network providers EE, Three, Vodafone and O2 offer the WiFi calling, none of their MVNO's do it.

    I still consider it madness that BT own EE but BT Mobile doesn't offer the same features as EE. Word from EE was that it distinguishes them from the cheaper providers.

    Looks like Three own it, I guess in that sense it probably won't randomly shutdown any time soon Good deal.

    Someone must be worried about the hurt from plusnet more competition can only be good.
    I wonder if you can port your number if you're already on Three?
    I'm very tempted to switch from Plusnet to this network. Even their £10 bundle might work out better value for me as the chances are that I'll not use up all 4GB of data.
    Is tethering allowed with this? If so, these plans are better than the 'proper' 3 essential tariffs.

    It would be silly of them not to include it as the more data you use, the more money they make.
    Tethering is allowed.

    Yes you can. Even though its owned by 3, it's still a different network. I plan on moving from 3 to this!
    3, ID mobile,now this SMARTY

    best data allowance, most minutes use abroad etc -
    BUT poorest and weakest network coverage - especially in the North West - Lancs, Yorkshire, Cumbria - shame

    sticking to BT
    I will also give it a go
    Ok. So why would you sign up for the £15 tariff and get a refund on the un-used data when it cost the same to buy the data from the lowest plan.

    Unless you don't get a refund on the additional data you've bought and then don't use.

    I'm that case you'd always be better off getting more data than you need and getting the refund than getting the cheapest and buying the extra.


    Either way it's a brilliant concept!


    I pay £13.55 for 20gb from virgin. Normally only use 1gb but there are occasions when I've used much more, so I'm paying for those odd occasions.

    This sounds brilliant, would only be £7.50 or less a month but worst case £15 on a heavy month.

    I'm also on 321 and make good use of data roaming in 3's long list of feel like home countries, plus calling French mobile numbers from the UK for 3p/min. Can Smarty do these things?

    It won't be one size fits all since I don't travel abroad so often & when I usually do, I just buy a local sim which is usually far cheaper. Smarty won't fit your needs right now but give them time to test the Market.

    You can’t call abroad or premium numbers - yet. We’re still getting international and premium calling ready. In the meantime, apps like Whatsapp are much more cost effective - only use data in your plan or over Wi-Fi.

    Roaming’s not ready. We haven’t been able to enable roaming in time for our launch. We’re a UK-only network at the moment, but we’re working on it.

    Vodafone are launching a new MVNO called VOXI on September 8th with free data for the following social media apps: Facebook and Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter and Viber. So you may want to wait.

    Looks like it's going after the younger mobile user who spends every moment sharing their life on social media.

    Smarty seems to be geared towards the user who's data usage fluxuates depending on their circumstances.

    the fact you have to credit the account to call 0845 etc numbers is a little strange tho

    I don't think it's an instant add on either, so you actually have to log in and buy it. Which means you can control your spending.

    Thats at show I read it anyhow.

    It's certainly interesting - especially in your case. I get 5gb for a tenner from a retention deal and use most of it up each month so I'm not seeing a massive opportunity here.

    I expect a lot of change in the market by the time my contract is up for renewal in December, though. 8gb for a tenner would be nice!

    Better value than ID, hopefully we'll see some good offers from them to stir up the competition even more.

    Seems like Three will share their data network with any MVNO who asks. No wonder their own data network is appalling, 1Mbit/s in the middle of Southampton, thanks...
    The only concern is the Three network.

    Other networks still have some OK retention deals BUT you have to pay for more than you need as the cost of going over is a extortionate!!

    It is certainly worth some serious though.

    £5 for unlimited calls & txt

    £1.25 per gb of data.


    If they gave you £5 credit for 0845, 111 etc. then I think they have a winning deal!
    Just been on the chat about the data.


    You get a refund on any data you don't use in your plan off next months bill.


    you DON'T get a refund on any data bought as an add-on BUT any unused data rolls over forever!!!!



    This is brilliant!!!
    I've just had an online chat conversation with their CS (which was answered very quickly by the way), to clarify the unused data. I've attached a screen shot of the conversation
