T-Mobile Unlimited Internet SIM £10 per month

Found 18th Jun 2010Made hot 18th Jun 2010
T-Mobile £10 per month SIM. It comes with 100 minutes and 100 texts but can also be bundled with a free unlimited internet flexible booster all for £10 a month. Great for a fairly light user that primarily wants internet access.

What sets it apart a bit is that it's only on a 30 day contract, is posted out free and qualifies for £80 Quidco.

Most other equivalent network SIM deals are around the £20 mark.

If you are after a phone then Argos are currently selling the Nokia 5230 for £74.99 which is already a good price and is full touchscreen and 3G and also comes with built in Sat Nav. So offset with Quidco you could end up with the phone costing £34.99.

My transaction is also tracking at £40 with Quidco.

Good deal, especially free internet booster which gives 1gb of downloads a month under the T-Mobile FUP. Great if you buy the iphone 4 sim-only from Apple and use this in it.:thumbsup:

Anyone know if they'll do micro SIMs?

To be honest, seeing as this SIM is a pay monthly SIM only I thought I might get the £80.

Good luck if anyone can.

Yes, it doesn't state that 1 month sim only are exccluded from the £80, so it should pay out. That said, I've lost tons of money with Quidco not paying out over the last year or so.

Otherwise, this phone is £99.99 on pay as you go @ Tmob store, and so would quality for £10 Quidco cashback - still higher than argos, but includes a £20 voucher to be used against accessories, and free internet for 6 months, if you needed more than the 1gig on the contract sim - guess that means topping up too tho. t-mobile.co.uk/sho…ew/ Obviously do not click the tmobile link (unless from Quidco) if you want cashback from quidco, as this would leave a tracking cookie and invalidate cashback.

Here;s the Quidco page for Tmob cashback - quidco.com/t-m…ile

One thing you should be aware of with T-Mobile is you dont get full speed internet on the internet booster package.Its 3G only max speed 0.384kbs.You dont get HSDPA and need to pay extra if you want that.

(Second posting about this today, oddly enough) This gets a cold from me: giffgaff ]http//gi…ing with a 10 pound goodie bag gets you 100 minutes, unlimited texts and properly unlimited data (though no tethering is allowed). Also, it's PAYG, so not even a 30 day contract. And you get free calls/texts to other giffgaff users.

Of course this might be moot if quidco does pay out...

Would this work with an internet dongle and if so which one would i need? Thanks

So how much is "unlimited" on this deal then?

500mb? 1000mb? I don't know how they are allowed to advertise using the word unlimited, it's scandalous.

As far as I know, the unlimited internet booster excludes use with a modem or dongle.

I went for this, but on a 24 month contract to get me a free 5800. The booster can be swapped once a month to cover free texts, some free calls or the free internet.

Sorry, but how is this a good deal when T-mobile do 6 months free internet if you top up your PAYG sim with £20? Just text ""FREE 6 MONTHS WEB"" to 441. I've been using the sim in a dongle for months now without problem.

Their service IMHO is second to none. If you go over the 1GB monthly fair use limit, they just send you a message saying you can continue browsing for free. Brilliant!

Try going over your limit with O2, vodafone, 3, virgin, etc. and see how you get shafted!

couldnt agree more. even my mum who's 60+ uses more than a gig a month.

can this be used with an unlocked iphone and still have all the features the iphone can do?

pls pm me if the answer if you have time
thanks

Hi there, heat added as its a great deal and I use it.

I used to work for T-mobile and with 'unlimited' internet there are various levels of their Fair Usage Policy (FUP) and this one is designed as a fair use policy for web access via a mobile phone although it will DEFINATELY work in any dongle.

The thing you need to watch out for, is dongle price plans have FUP's of 1Gb/3Gb respectively over a period of a month, whereas this plan splits the FUP into 'daily' usage so they can monitor usage as 35mb is a lot to use if browsing on a mobile so rarely an issue so if you constantly use it over lets say roughly 35mb per day, then it may flag up on the system, so this plan is not advised for youtube/iplayer etc as it will flag quickly and they may throttle your usage to basic browsing afetr a few days.

Also, they set certain features on the plan that limits the download speeds as its generally used on a mobile phone so from memory the fastest speed you would notice using a dongle is about 1Mbit/sec and they only open up the speeds to max possible on the dongle price plans.

So in summary, great deal, will work in dongles, but not max speed and dont download/stream lots, only use for general browsing/email which its perfect for

:.)

Sorry but 100 texts is a joke, most people will do at least 3x that. Not getting a hot vote from me for that reason.

Giffgaff.com is far better IMO, no contract required at all and for the same money (£10 a month) you get unlimited internet and texts plus 100 minutes.

t-mobile > Giffgaff.com (02network) / way better service and 3G coverage

I went with the Vodafone 600mins, Unlimited txt and 1GB Internet for £20 per month with £100 Quidco so will be £140 for the year.

Giffgaff.com

Have you read their privacy policy section on collection and use of personal data? I ordered their free SIM and stopped cold when I read who they send information about you to (not just name etc. but details on network use).

Yes great deal for the next two weeks!:roll:

"Free Mobile Internet:
You lucky giffgaff pioneers can even enjoy free UK mobile Internet up to the end of June 2010. After that date, mobile Internet will be charged at 50p a day (if you use less than 2.5MB/day you'll pay less than 50p and if you go over 30MB you'll be charged extra at 20p/MB)."

Not me - but then I guess I'm not part of your sweeping assumption.

I've always been put off T-Mobile because as far as I know they are the only network to charge for voicemail access, which seems very petty to me.

(I know you can get round it by calling your own number, but then that uses up your minutes and presumably is less convenient because you need to enter your PIN.)

If you spend the £10 a month on the Giffgaff goody bag you still get unlimited internet included :whistling:

I looked into voicemail charges and have found (to my surprise) that depending on which tariff and package you're on most mobile phone service providers now charge for voicemail retrieval.

It's a bit of a minefield and quite tricky to unearth the charges but I think i'm right in saying for this equivalent deal elsewhere the charges would be...

O2 voicemail is inclusive (free).

Orange is 25p per minute.

Vodafone the minutes would be deducted from your minutes bundle.

T-Mobile charge 12p per call.

3 is free.

A great deal this, good find.

i just plug my phone into my laptop with usb cable and connect through nokia pc suite internet works great with it on my laptop.you can also get just unlimited net for 5 a month on pay as you go.

Eek - thanks for doing that research; I didn't know we were on the slippery slope to being charged for voicemails. I'm on Three and if they start charging I will switch my voicemail off. It's self-defeating for them because voicemail is a cash cow, answering so quickly as it does (tho with Three you can ask them to extend the ringing period a bit) and whenever the phone can't be reached.

Except I believe that's against their terms and conditions, they can detect you are tethering your phone to a laptop, and they are within their rights to cut you off or charge you.

You can't use iplayer on mobile net anyway, it needs wifi!:)

I've been on this deal now for several months and would definitely recommend it, as well as that the 30 day rolling contract is great and your not tied into a long contract which i hate, ive definitely used more than 1GB a month but have never been charged nor even contacted about it :thumbsup:

Has anyone had the Quidco cashback tracked for this? If yes, is it £80?

The T-Mobile Quidco page doesn't have any mention of a £40 cashback rate. I can see only £80, has the cashback rate gone up in the past couple of days? :?

And, Oh Yes!! Heat & Rep added.

It did say £80 before I went for it but it has tracked at £40. £40's good enough for me but good luck to anyone that gets £80.

I believe, you can raise a ticket, once your £40 is paid out. I have raised tickets on Quidco in the past for untracked or wrong cashback amounts and most have been accepted.

Anyone else who has had the cashback tracked?

That's interesting, my cashback has changed to now tracking at £80...wahey!

I haven't raised a ticket or anything.

Not bad really when it's just a 30 day contract, so you're getting 8 months for free or just a wad in your pocket if you cancel.

Have to also add that I got one of the Nokia 5230's and it's a cracking phone for the money. E-mails arrive straight away and surfing and everything else are fine with its big clear screen.

I am already on T-mobile and would like to keep my number. Is it possible to get a pac code to transfer to an old PAYG i have and then transfer back to the new sim?
