Wasn't there a thread to a Google docs spread sheet with all the deals? with filtering to match what you're looking for. I remember referring to it a few times when looking for deals a year or so ago.
The id 15£ shockproof deal comes with 2000mins, not 500 as you listed.

Both me and my partner are on Life Mobile through uswitch deal, would highly recommend the network. Good customer service so far and great coverage (uses EE network). Only negative for some would be current lack of 4G support

I think it was deleted due to it cutting out HUKD's referral links.
Ahh deja vu. good post, nice to see it again
Great thread OP, heat for the effort.

Have a question was hoping someone could answer thats not in the FAQ. For the Three all you can eat data tariff it says on the details section on the website: "On our All-you-can-eat data plans, you can use up to 30GB of your data each month to create a Personal Hotspot within the UK"

Does this mean if I were to use the SIM in a mobile WiFi device as a hotspot that it would completely stop working after using 30GB or would they just start traffic shaping it at that point?
Gifffgaff £20 payg is not unlimited, I just had an email warning message saying I've been downloading/streaming too much and if it happens again I will not be able to purchase the £20 goodybag again... I only just went over my 6gb limit

Any way of getting a sim only deal consisting of like 10 mins, 10 texts and 4GB 4G for cheap? I use WhatsApp a lot more nowadays for texting and calling.

Have a look at Tesco Mobile, as their Home from Home promotion is covered in Sweden, allowing you to use your included allowances

Have a sense of humour, that mclovin9091 post had me LOL when he first posted it, he also done a follow up to that post.I think it's the best thread posted this year IMHO.

How much of a good value is 250 mins/5000 texts/ 2GB on Tesco Mobile for £10 p/m for 12 months? I got this counter-offer after asking if they could drop the price of their £11 p/m package (250/5000/2GB ). I'm in the cooling off period and tempted to just go with iD Mobile's £5 p/m package instead but not sure on their network reliability.

Add my deal. Ends in 6 days.
My Vodafone 12 month sim only deal is coming to an end in Sept. Currently paying £13.20 unlimited mins, text and 4gb 4G (plus 6 months netflix).
Holding out for a similar deal although the £18 o2 with 10gb is very good

Awesome, thank you. That link doesn't seem to work though, just takes me to the Tesco home page
Good but
What about voda cashback deals from mobiles.co.uk/e2save - generally the cheapest for unlimited mins.

Also existing customers deals for Talktalk/BT can be good especially with cashback.

Finally Life mobile allows you to cap at as little as £1 pm over contract price - does anyone else come close to this yet?

Fab stuff for putting all of this together, many thanks indeed.

Tempted to go for the iD Mobile's £5 p/m package - the TCB shows as 40.40 - which means 20 quid odd for an entire year - too good to be true or I am missing something here?
Overheard Vodafone customer adviser saying to customer that she can discount if she works for nhs or knows someone who works for nhs. All she needed was an email address. Not sure how much of a discount!

Sadly, the £40 cashback is only for 12 month contracts, and the £5/m deal is a 30-day contract that only pays £5 cashback.
