2GB of 3G data (talkmobile do not offer 4G at this moment in time)

£7.50 pm before cashback

£1.50 pm after £72 cashback (requires sending bills at months 4, 6, 8, 10, 12)

£0.66 pm after topcashback/quidco £10

- This is a great deal if you don't need 4G. To be honest, unless you want to pay for an unlimited/very high allowance data package, there's not much point of 4G anyway.

- talkmobile use the Vodafone network, which may be a deal-breaker for some.

- I have used mobilephonesdirect.co.uk before, and submitting cashback has been easy enough. No problems.

No doubt this will go cold, I too have used mobile phones direct cashback without much bother, one issue but they helped me sort it. As for talkmobile, it's a shame they're on the back of Vodafone 3g but at this price who cares. I'm on talkmobile at present, at least I know it'll be near impossible to exceed my data allowance. No problems with calls or texts, just data is slow especially as where I live and my desk at work doesn't get 3g speed just 2g. I have to walk out my office to get 3g.

good deal. heat from me, unfortunately no good to me as voda signal woeful by us! most casual users will never need 4g anyway!

My contract just expired with talkmobile and I have been very happy with piggy tailed Vodafone`s coverage where I live.
I am looking how could I possibly get this deal as I am existing talkmobile customer?
Cancelling existing contract then porting number to some temp pay as you go and then getting this deal and porting number to it? Sounds awful complicated

how do you get the cashback, do you have to email your bill.

You submit the relevant bill via their website. They will send you a cheque for the amount once your claim has been processed. See the FAQ here secure.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk/hel…aqs

As long as you're organised and do not forget to claim, these deals are hard to beat.

I used to send them my paid bill in the post and once approved get a cheque, this was easier than doing it online for me

Hmmm I'm not sure why that would be easier. When you do it online you simply upload a PDF copy of your bill... takes just a few minutes to do.

aaah fair enough

If I use this on a Vodafone Smart Prime 6, will it work without unlocking?

I *think* you would still need to unlock the phone, though I am not 100% sure.

was looking at this an hour ago and really fancy it buy keep thinking they'd find a way to deny me cash back.
has anyone used quidco and has cash back?

I've used a talkmobile payg SIM in a locked Vodafone handset without any problems

If it does need to be unlocked you can get the unlock codes off ebay for a few quid. Likelihood being you wouldn't need to anyway.

thank you

Look at the TM Trustpilot reviews before considering this.

Could you cap your bills?

Have Talkmobile changed their policy on requiring a PAC upfront during the ordering process or not at all? That was always the dealbreaker for me.

2.6 rating ...but you may be surprised to know that o2 have 1.5, Virgin have 1.4, EE have 0.8, Vodafone have 0.4 -- so... should we avoid all of these network providers based on that? 3 have 7.6, yet many here have had bad experiences with them also. I personally had the worst ever customer support experience when I was with 3.

Don't expect too much from the data sadly..

can you tether with this deal?

talk mobile uses grade B Voda network, customer service as bad as voda if not worse, less minute, only 3g, about the same price as voda 8gb deal. why would someone want this one? (no offence op,just want to understand)

Isn't the Vodafone deal 5.50 a month? This is 66p a month.

How long does the cashback take to pay out? They stipulate that cashback won't be paid if the contract's disconnected, so a chance the month 12 payment won't appear if one wants to get it for 66p a month.

If I remember correctly, usually within a few weeks of submitting the bill. But you can Google it and see what others say.

I've never gone beyond the minimum contract length, and have always received the final cashback payment.

That's good to know. Tempted by this offer, but frustrating as I only just took out a one month TM sim-only to take away on holiday with me (customer service has been excellent so far, by the way).

Superb deal though

Just got an e-mail from MPD stating that I didn't pass their security checks... which is weird. I'll have to give them a call tomorrow and see what's going on. Definitely not prepared to send them all of this information, though:

cashback - use only if you can afford to lose all of it and wouldn't be too bothered , in which case it's worth it..otherwise just get a standard deal

Got this deal for my wife a couple of days ago and had no problem giving Talkmobile her PAC today - should be ported in 3 days time.

Never had any problems with redemption deals with MobilePhonesDirect - now have 3 contract on the go with them in my family, and all paying out the cashback regularly. Easy to upload the correct bills, and they pay out quickly too.

On the down side, TCB hasn't tracked for me this time yet - but give it time.

You should try unlocking with this link:
vodafone.co.uk/vod…st/

It's free but you need to have been with Vodafone for 90 days (or 30 days if you're on PAYG)

It is always a struggle to get your cashback, read reviews on trustpilot.

I have just finished a cashback contract with mobile phone direct, no problem getting cash back at all. However, Talkmobile signal is so bad. Good price though.

I and many others have never had any issues with these types of cashback deals. I have used Mobile Phones Direct before without a problem, as have others. trustpilot is full of positive reviews... 8.9/10... so I'm not sure what you mean.

​Were/are you able to keep your old telephone number for these redemption deals?
I looked at the faqs and was it was not clear whether you can or cannot

Yes you can keep your existing number. The same procedure to porting the number applies. However once you port the number you just have to update it with mobilephonesdirect (online by signing into your account).

I was using MPD's cashback before (Dec 15 - Aug 16) with no bigger issue. There was one problem in the middle (refused to pay cashback because of the wrong bill sent, they stated), but after contacting their CS (and being advised to send following bill) - everything was ok. The cashback was quite big (£252 all together), so it *seems* to be a safe deal.
