GETGet dealVisit site and get deal
main feature & hottest part of this deal is that you can cap your spending , which means less risk for kids to run up a bill but with all the flexibility & value. been looking for this feature for a long time , I dont think any one else does it.

Cap your tariff

Our new feature lets you cap your tariff, meaning you get the great value of Pay monthly with the control of Pay as you go.

This feature is great:

* If you want to make sure you only spend what you want to each month.
* For managing your kids spending, whether theyre at school or college.
* If you like the idea of Pay monthly but dont want to lose the control of Pay as you go.

How it works

You will get your monthly credit as normal (eg. £40 credit on the £10 tariff) but if you spend it all you will need to top-up, just like Pay as you go, to keep using your phone until your next months credit begins.

For example, if you pay a £10 a month for your kids phone and they spend all their credit, they will have to top-up to keep using it that month.

this is a great idea think i will get this for my daughter

Voted hot, though its not something i want as my oldest is only 6 but its a good idea having the limit feature :thumbsup:

that's the biggest hurdle to giving a teenager a contract sim out the way... nice one...

Very Good Heat Hot Nice Find Thanks

Does anyone know if voicemail is free on this plan?
I have read the site and can't find any info :-(

T-mobile do a scheme exactly like this and have done for a year or so. Brill for mouthy teens.

what network is tesco mobile?

O2 - just works !!!

Would this work with the £15pm deal posted other day?

Do you know a better deal then? with the same facility? share it with us if you do.
As a parent who has had a large bill turn up unexpectedly i would welcome something like this even if it is a bit more expensive.

did that a couple of years ago with virgin, it turned out to be a load of tosh,when the kids reached the limit , they automatically started charging extra , so I ended up with a bill of not £10 but £30. rung them up but they couldnt give me a streight answer , they said we automatically start charging, up to you to stay within your given minutes, not sure if it is still the same, needless to say I canceled and told them to stick it.

Spot on , only parents can really appreciate this deal.

Not really anyone can appreciate it if they're concerned about a big bill, not exactly a deal either per se given it's simply a cap and as has been stated already there are other options out there as well, esp if O2 is no good where you live

I am and I still don't see the need for any child to have a mobile phone at all, there is no justification in my eyes.

cap should be £10. not £40. Good to cap, but not a very good cap for kids.

edit

or am I reading it wrong? Is it £10 per month (which is worth £40) and once it is used they need to top up?

You pay £10 you get £40, rather then having a set number of texts or minutes you just get credit to be used on what ever instead.

I can't see what is so great about this, 3 have allowed you to set a cap of £0 and I am sure other networks do the same.

|Have used t-mobile with a cap for years with my kids works really well. at the moment my son has 900 mins free txts and broadband for 25 pounds a month on sim only. 1 month contract.

NO network has had a true cap , meaning you absolutely cannot go above your selected credit or minutes amount, by not allowing any further calls from your handset. I have checked many times . was in the trade a few years ago and I know for fact that it certainly has not been offered years ago

Its a simple feature if the networks wanted to provide it, but they dont , cos they want to make money.

The capping feature is not explained in the link you have provided, if your son reaches his limit is he restricted from making any calls?

Rubbish - t-mobile have had it for years (at least 5, possibly nearer 10!) - mix-it & u-fix are the two names it has had. Gotta love the I was in the trade so I know comments - did you work for DSG?

sorry my mistake , I do recall u-fix, and certain others, the main problem with them was the fact that they were such poor value for money. like I said it has been a few years since i was in the trade. :thumbsup:

any network ive ever been with ive put a cap on......Cant work out why people are saying you cant. Ive done since i had a phone over 10 years ago.

They just put a cap on your credit.

Much like Bt can and virgin can on land line bills,

Does he use all his minutes? If he only uses 300-500 look at this]http//ww…d-w
Save £10 a month but obviously only if he doesn't use all his minutes. Just a thought:thumbsup:

It is a true cap. has never went over 25 pounds and he uses all his minutes regularly.(typical teenager and goes onto txts.)
if you run out of credit etc you can top up as a normal payg.phone.
