    Best Mobile Deals for about £10/month

    Ok heres the poser...

    Mum is about to go into acer home therefore will have no landline. Dad will go into a sheltered flat nearby so may or ma not have a land line.

    Currently Mum is in hospital and Dad is with us.

    I have them both on the TalkMobile £6/month but its only 50/mins per month. At the moment its OK but once they move away from us they are going to need more mins per month.

    So I'm looking for any deals with anynetwork that gives say 200-300 mins per month at the best price I can get because I will be paying for their mobile now.

    The mins can be on net only as they will really only call each other. If they call us we will use our Virgin 300/300 £10 sims.

    They do not need texts at all.

    Most deals I can find give loads on texts if you top up by £10 but no so many give extra minutes.

    Do not need phones as they both have Samsung C300s and are happy with them.

    Best not to go to 3 unless I can get cheap simple phones for them.

    Any ideas folks

    cheers

    If you have virgin tv you can sign up for £10 p.m. 300 min and 300 texts, get two and give to mum and dad, it will just be billed to you
    there were cheap phones on here today from w h smith dont know which provider they work with but also you can get a cheap phone and sign up for the free £5 virgin sims, there was a place on here that would give you up to 4 with £5 credit
    Good luck

    try the 3 mix and match 1100 for £13.88 after quidco and refer a friend, 1100 units you get, 1 unit being a text or 1 min talking.

    i have considerd 3.

    But do not really want to fork out £20 and the quidco is not guaranteed. Also they will need new phones and that is another problem for 70 odd year olds

    I may even get the 3 mobile broadband 1GB deal for Dad. He is 76 but he was horried that he may not get the net in his sheltered flat! We are not sure what options are there for lineline phones adsl.

    id be weary of the mobile broadband, if you go over the 1gb limit, the extra charges are shocking !

    Also as for the quidco thing, maybe 1 or 2 who hasnt got it, my quidcos have always paid out

    get the 3 deal, get the nokia 6500 classic bronze, sell it for £160, buy a cheap simple phone for them thats unlocked :-) quids in that way

    Yes this is frightening

    £0.10 / MB thats £100 for 1GB over the limit :shock:

    But just checked Dad's bank statements and he has never gone over his 1GB quota with Plus.net so he should be OK.
