1 month contract

gavjbrown, Thanks for your help.

seems a good deal long as you dont go over the 100mins as the next 100 mins will cost you another £20 guess this is how they make their money.

Im on the tesco lite payg tariff 8p a min and 4p for txt

tesco.com/mob…=84

does tesco do quidco?

Giffgaff - currently beats this, its offer 100mins,unltd text and unltd internet for £5

Giffgaff Deal

Edited by: "charliebrown" 3rd Aug 2010

Firstly, who the **** are giffgaff

Secondly, as there's no mention of a lengthy contract duration it only seems like a limited offer before it vanishes again. Hardly worth bothering with.

very good deal maybe temped by this i am currently on asda network on pay as you go. 8p a min and 4p text. i used alot of text, spend £5 or more a month maybe time for a change.

Giffgaff are a MVNO virtual network run on the O2 network - its a subsidiary of O2 - a barebones tariff to compete against Asda etc.

Yes - its a PAYG SIM no lengthy contract - the £5 SIM could be taken for now and September, outside of their goodybags it 8p a call 4p text but all texts and calls are free giffgaff to giffgaff for 3 months after each top up.

Oh and you can earn money back for contributing to their forum - just over a £50 in two months for me.

Thanks for this - just bought one

Anyone know if you can keep your current number with this deal?

No mention of it on the Teso Mobile website.

Thanks

what is their reception like?

The reception is brilliant.. Tesco uses 02 networks.. It's exatcly the same.. something like 99% of the country is covered? or something crazy

what is their reception like?



They use o2's network so it's pretty good.

so what is better?? giff gaff or this tesco deal?? I dont understand

giffgaff are ok, i got this for my dad.... it piggy backs o2 no credit check no contract

looks good but can't see anything about adding internet

Can this be used on an iphone?

And what are the charges if you use 3G data?

No, use Tesco's £15/month contract for the iPhone. Unlimited texts, unlimited internets, lots of minutes (600 I think), rolling one-month contract. It's a good deal.

Do you get to make use of the £6 after the month is over?
Edited by: "starman0147" 13th Aug 2010

I looked at this, but I decided to stick with O2 and swap from £20/month Simplicity to £10/month PAYG

This isn't a good idea for everyone, but if you use less than 300 texts (which I do) and less than 500Mb data (which I do), then it's a decent deal. Note that the Tesco deal doesn't include any data.

It's true that calls will be about 25p/minute on O2 PAYG, but I make very very few calls so the 40 minutes my £10 buys is plenty.

As with all of these deals, you really have to know what your usage pattern is and buy accordingly. For example, I could use the Tesco £15/month plan for loads more minutes and unlimited data, but I don't even get close to the limits of my £10/month so the extra fiver would be a waste.

why? is the Giff Gaff and Tesco fair use policy 300 = unlimited?

Data is charged at £4/Mb...which is outstandingly shocking. If you intend using your phone for internet at all, I'd be very wary of this deal.

Tesco's £10 monthly rolling SIM deal reads as follows:

£10 Tariff 1 Month Contract (250 minutes plus unlimited texts and 3 … £10 Tariff 1 Month Contract (250 minutes plus unlimited texts and 3 months unlimited data)


Source: tescomobilepaymonthly.com/pro…o=1

Three months of limited data awarded each month doesnt seem to make much sense - can anyone elaborate further please?

No, I mean the O2 PAYG deal that I've moved on to.

£10 Tariff 1 Month Contract (250 minutes plus unlimited texts and 3 … £10 Tariff 1 Month Contract (250 minutes plus unlimited texts and 3 months unlimited data) Three months of limited data awarded each month doesnt seem to make much sense - can anyone elaborate further please?



You get data for free for the first 3 months that you stay with them. After that, there is a per/Mb charge. Can't remember what is was exactly but the guy I spoke to at Tesco was pretty switched on and he made it pretty clear that their £15/month deal is the one to go for if you want to use any amount of data.

Data £4/meg after your three moths are up Andysan.

Thanks chaps, thats a shame as I assumed it was simply a typo. It reads in the same sentence as the monthly minutes and texts so unless you only get those in the first month it implies that you get 3 months of data each month (which is why I was confused). Thanks for clearing that up, will stick with Three I think.

EDIT - £15 deal just a flexible credit deal? These where you basically get PAYG rates right?
Edited by: "Andysan" 14th Aug 2010

Giff Gaff deal is better You get unlimited internet aswell, currently £5 a month until the end of the month, you can makes loads of money from them too, I've already made over £80 by sending emails and referrals. Also free 0800 calls and no contract!!

Signed up for this a few days ago, wish I'd known about giff gaff but hey ho.

Went through topcashback and it's tracked at £6 even though it doesn't say anything about cashback for the £6 tariff.

Just ordered one for my sons first phone & the lady said you can keep your current number, just change it the normal way. Thanks

Is it possible to get them to cap it so that when the 100 free minutes are used it doesnt automatically allow chargeable calls?

Yes, you just need the pack code from your previous supplier.

Just got mine from Orange, they post it to you. It takes 3 - 5 days.

I use Tesco PAYG taffif for every £10 I top up I get £20 free credit [free credit must be used within a month].
I was thinking of a similar contract with Tesco - but they don't have very good rating on the forums. Apparently they operate quite a tough 'fair-use' policy.
cheers
