Talkmobile retentions offering 50% off Vodafone packages to existing customers e.g iPhone SE 32gb for £15/month with 4gb data

Found 11th Mar
I think this has been posted before, but I thought it was worth refreshing. I just called Talkmobile for my pac code and they told me that they were winding down and transferring to Vodafone and if I was interested I could have 50% off Vodafone packages. I asked what there was and he suggested the Huawei P Smart as it has recently been launched and gets good reviews which I could have for £15 per month for 4gb data, unlimited minutes and texts. I have checked the Vodafone website and it is £30 (although Vodafone do have a free big data upgrade for £30 but not available on this offer). Alternatively there is a 32gb iPhone SE for the same price.

I checked out other websites deals on these phones and cannot get anywhere near for the same amount of data etc. Best was 2gb data for the same but only by claiming cashback.

i appreciate this is a fairly limited offer only available to existing Talkmobile customers but hope this proves useful to some.

Thanks for sharing op.....
12 or 24 months contract ?
24 months on handset deals.
Good deals if you haven't already left talkmobile. I left about 10 months ago
My dad is currently on talkmobile. He’s not sure when his contract is up and so I tried to contact them yesterday. Rang through from his phone but the automated menu doesn’t give you the option of talking to a customer service advisor. Weird.

Thanks, but I did this yesterday and the only options were “manage allowances, pay a bill, or report a phone lost or stolen”.
I’m due for an upgrade and my account states in Upgrade page iPhone 6’s £23.60 per month. I phoned last Friday 9th Mar as it didn’t say what was included. I was informed “unlimited text & calls plus 1 GB. I’m not a big user and was offered 500texts, 500mins & 500 data for £19.20. Lol he talked so fast I wanted to have a think and having seen the iPhone 6’s or SE I went to check it out locally and phoned them again today........the website page still states the same price for the 6’s £23.60 but I was told this hadn’t been updated and the price was now £29.60 for what I was offered Friday for £19.60. I was furious, I asked them to honour what was stated on the website and they refused saying they didn’t bother to update it!!!?,, I said I’d be leaving then which they said was up to me. I immediately phoned back this time selecting “thinking of leaving us” and got the same, rude indifferent attitude plus “well you know we’re CLOSING DOWN” basically none of them could give a **** I asked for a manager and he supposedly spoke to one and said I can put you through but they’ll tell you the same thing......”doesn’t matter what the website states, we don’t update it.” and
“we can’t help it if you don’t like our prices, you’re entitled to go elsewhere”. SO I’m not impressed and don’t plan to change to Vodaphone if this is how they think they’ll win us over. I’ll either go to Carphone warehouse on their network or buy a refurbed or used one and just get a sim......or I may even stick with the Samsung I have....... NOT IMPRESSED THEY ADVERTSE A PRICE THEY REFUSE TO HONOUR to an established customer and Ive never ever received such bad customer service,

Sore head, only read the capitals as the rest of the words are clearly less important than caps

Well I did get a better response on Friday than Sunday...........perhaps the quality of the sales staff improves mid week 🤪 ...........I’ve got to phone them again about specifics of when to give my notice and time frames on pac code so maybe they’ll offer me a better deal but I HAD A LITTLE TIME TO THINK IT OVER ...

Even at the old price still being advertised of £23.20 over 24 months the cost will be £556. I’d be far better off with a refurbished 6s for £150ish which includes a 12month warranty and buy 30day sim contract with roll over at £3.99 per month .......less than half the price totalling under £250 😝

Wow can't believe they spoke to u like that, closing down or not. Buy it sim free and have a look at plusnet mobile they are so generous with there plans have a look at them on u switch they play off ee. I pay 10 and get unlimited calls and texts and 5gb data for 8.50 a month own my se outright... and oh get ur pac code so u can still rock same number on plusnet
OP? Have talk mobile finally gone under?
Have talk mobile gone bust then?
Two year contract finished 10 April 2018 wanted to keep phone and get a low use sim.
Moved to a 30 day SIM with 500 min 5000 text and 1.5gb after rejecting the half price Vodapnone offers. This is a result for me.
My contract ran out last month and they phoned me today offering various deals but I was out so didn't get writing them down LOL. The operator told me she thought the best deal was on the Huawei P20 lite for £15 per month for 24m 4gb data, unlimited minutes and texts. A new phone would be nice :-) as I'm using an old LG Nexus which had an overheating problem so is running a custom rom to slow it down. I will phone them back and ask about the P20.
OK just phoned them back. P20 24m contract ul calls/txt 1GB data £23.20pm + £16.70 up front

Not sure it's worth it.

EDIT... (Another coot story time LOL) They called me yesterday and offered me the p20 for £16 per month!!!! YAY ETC I was out at the time so had to call them back today. Needless to say there is no such deal and the operator had no idea what I was talking about. So I asked for my PAC code.

I've just rang twice and only been offered iPhone se 32gb for £16.80 a month with 1gb data or £21 with 4gb data. The half price was in Huawei p smart at £16.10 a month for 4gb and Samsung j3 at £15 a month 4gb, also some sim only plans were half price.
