Free T-mobile micro sim, top up £10 and you will get 12 months free data of 500MB per month on a SINGLE topup of the £10.

I know it says for iphone 4 only, but along with me other users have reported that they have used in ipads and 3g dongles with no issues.

I am using it in my ipad as a data sim for the past few months, or you can get a free micro sim adapter and stick it into a normal phone to use.

You may have to call them up to get them to activate the free data like I had to, but 12 moths of data for £10 is a really good price!

---------------------------------

there does seem to be some confusion about the free data, as the site also mentions if you top up £10 a month you get 100 free mins each month.

Just to clarify this is on top of the 12 months data you get from your first £10 top up, if you just click on the buy now button you will see the breakdown on the next page.

I have used this sim for the past few months and have only topped up the first £10 and I have still got the free data.

taken from chat transcript - me n Stella

Max: how do i get the free internet?
Stella: Are you looking for Micro sim?
Stella: I can offer you Free Micro sim + £10 top up. In which you'll get 12 months free internet worth £40. ( You can browse and email as much as you want. There is a 500MB data allowance for streaming videos, uploading and downloading files per month.)
Stella: How does this deal sound to you?
Stella: You will be charged for £10 top up

I think the orange one posted here with £5 credit for £1 and 1 yr free internet is a better value

Yes these do work in ipad. My free internet took some sorting out, got it sorted with twitter after phoning 3 times. I did put mine in my iphone but was spending to much so i put it in my ipad and got another sim for my phone.
ordered this, i actually have an iphone 4s, the 10£ didn't come preloaded even though the order receipt said it did and the free internet was not activated either, after nearly an hour being pushed from pillar to post in t-mobile customer services they finally agreed to activating the 10£ but only 6 months of internet for me to phone up again in 6 months to get it extended as they wanted to monitor whether I was actually using it in an iphone 4.

wont be ordering one again direct from t-mobile, you're better off getting one from eBay that someone's already been through the pathetic process to get activated.
no to good

I bought this sim one month ago, they didn't activate free web I'm chating with them on facebook about it....
Once activated its great just arguing with them in the process to set it up that's not
GiffGaff is better offer - for £10 per month I get 250 min, unlimited text and unlimited internet

I ve got mine in my 3gs
To the folk having trouble with these , setting up, other devices etc...

I went into my local T-Mobile shop last year as I genuinely wanted to move from Virgin as I had a 3GS (which virgin didn't support)... Guy offered me this sim, I was very surprised at such a deal, and he said it didn't matter that it was a 3GS, he activated a regular sim with this deal for me.

I have since been back a few times, again they activated it in store for me on a regular sim. I even got two at the same time without any bother, just a few weeks ago. I have them working in a number of android phones /tabs

It's worth asking in store, seems the policy varies and I am lucky to have one that allows this... Hence I won't say which one it is, but I will say its in London.

Great deal by the way,

Damn, wish I'd seen this when I was deciding which iPad mini to order. Was put off the cellular version as I thought it'd be expensive for data :-/
Website says £10 a month not just £10. Does that mean the deal is actually £120 for the year?

Can you link this deal please as would be useful for me as i have an orange phone?
If you're looking at Internet only then:

Orange - £5 credit - 250Mb per month works with all phones.
T-Mobile - £10 credit - 500Mb per month but some who tried it in a non- iPhone were refused the free internet.
Edited by: "repouk" 28th Oct 2012
Orange deal is miles better value
What if I activated the T-Mobile "£10 with 12 months free internet" sim in an iphone for 24 hours then moved it to a Mifi device?
Would the internet carry on working?
Or would T-Mobile realise that I had changed device and cancel the freebie internet?

I had a T-Mobile free internet sim in a non iPad tablet. Worked fine with limited use for 6 months then last week no more internet. Put it in a phone and did a balance/allowance check and free internet had gone :-\ guess I got rumbled
I grabbed the Orange 250mb sim + 12months data for £0.99 off ebay, only to find that the data wont work in my iPad but does in my iphone 4. Any suggestions? Or do I just need to buy this t-mobile one as per OP?
I wish o2 did something like this

Use this sim in my Ipad. Registered in store credit and allowence added. Been using for 2 months. Great deal.
Can I just clarify that if I buy this sim then for £10 I get free internet for a year with no other charges or commitment? I.E. this isn't £10pm etc.
thanks
