This is probably the best bet for people who have been let down by OVIVO. No messing around with cash back or selling stuff. Posted as I cannot find the SIMO Megathread any more.

Tesco mobile is second best @ £7.50. Better deal if you can get a family perk of extra 150mins or 250mb don't forget internet is 4g and tehering incuded.

It is a couple of months out of date but most of the information on there is still valid

what's the cheapest way to get unlimited data? I'm on the 600 at the moment at 9.90 but never use the minutes or text so could drop to 200. Is there an all you can eat upgrade available on the 200?

Check the Three coverage map, if that is no good for you I think there is an EE deal at £13.

Quite right, and the OP says he is going to update it at the end of the month.

Are you able to set a limit for your bills with Three? My 11 year old daughter was on Ovivo for 18months and always used up her minutes and texts so I am worried about her going over the limit with a contract - at least with Ovivo when it was finished it was finished

Otherwise, can anyone please recommend a PAYG where you get some internet allowance? Thanks x

You can cap the contract cost with Tesco mobile

I think Tesco mobile allow you to set a limit (could be wrong but someone else will confirm)

Three PAYG is only 3p per min, 2p per text and 1p per mb so might do the trick for you as I don't think you can set limits with Three on the pay monthly contracts.

be careful on 4G

500MB will go with a few hd youtube videos then the thousand pound bills will be inevitable oO

Only problem is that the £7.50 p/m sim has no data. If you put £7.50 on the Three PAYG you would get for example 400mb 50 texts and 80 mins.

Why is this better than talk mobile?

well at £7.50 a month if you need data on PAYG, I would go with giffgaff. No chance of running up big bills either

More mins, more texts, 4g and cheaper...

As another former Ovivo customer....im looking at Talk mobile. It uses the Vodafone coverage as did Ovivo, which is the best one for where i work. 250 mins, 5000 texts, 500mb data...£7 on a month by month contract. Owned by carphone warehouse so might last me longer then the 6 months Ovivo did.

I left them as well for the same reasons...not sure why they cannot get a strong signal like the other mobile providers..i went with Tesco mobile in the end.

I think i'm getting the asda deal for my daughter, its ideal because she mainly uses her phone for texting.
£5 for 100 mins 2000 texts and 100mb

Yes, I'm on the One Plan though have my limit set to zero, granted, this stops me from doing some things that I'd like to do occasionally (SMS abroad being the only item I can think of) though I use a dial-through for inclusive 0800 and WeQ4U for 0845 etc.

If you do this instore ask the sales bloke to add 2000 three 2 three minutes on. Don't think you can get the extra minutes buying online.

Virgin Mobile is good too. My Daughter has Unlimited Mins Text and data £15 a month.
I have gone for their £7.00 one which is 150 mins unlimited text 500 data which is good for me.
Both 30 day rolling contract.

This sounds good but where is the 12 month contract option ? surely a 12 month control over the 1 month should reduce it to £9.99
Or is 3 cheating by avoiding such a lush contract ?

Three do not have any 2G coverage and therefore rely solely on 3G

Yeah Three only offer this on a 1 month rolling contract, would be nice if there was a 12 month option at a lower cost. They used to offer a 24 month contract with 100 mins instead of 200 and a free phone (not a very good one mind) but they have stopped offering those types of deals this week.

I've recently rejoined 3 on the £9.90 12 month contract with 600 mind, texts and 1 data. Added the bundle online to get unlimited data for an extra £3 a month rather than upping the entire contract to £15!

Went in store and got this deal earlier, you can cap it as was offered this in the store.

The guy that served me also threw in 2000 3 to 3 minutes aswell per month and let me go through the sims to pick a gold number, so be sure to ask.

talk talk have better offers

will i have to pay extra to use the 4g or is it in the price?
hate having to rush round for a sim deal but ovivo hasn't given me a choice ggrrrr

Another promo for the only thread worth mentioning:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/best-sim-only-deals-megathread-1623625

Ovivo cheap don't always mean a "hot deal"

Talk mobile, just purchased free sim. 1 month contract £7 a month. This includes 250 mins, 500mb data, 5k text + £5 quidco.

Better than 3 by 50 mins and only 1 month contract. Sorted
