    Best SIM only deal for business (charity)

    We have a new team of five people starting on a new project and they need a SIM each (we'll buy unlocked phones) with maybe minimum 2gb 4G and 400 mins and 200 txt or so. We need cheap but reliable connection around Midlands and easy to buy. Free calls to each would be a bonus!

    the one deal that I think may be the cheapest is 3g's unlimited min/text and 4gb data for £9

    phone the networks they have special offers for business and you will probably get a deal on any current phones you have. they have reps who will do bespoke deals as well.

    Sounds good ... I need to check availability of 4G in our area I guess, or maybe that's no longer an issue with them?

    OK, will look at that. I'd quite like a deal with Phone Coop or similar so might try calling them last after trying a few others.

    Make sure what ever deal you go for it comes with a cap for the data. People do not seem as worried when they are using a supplied mobile with a data connection compared to when they are paying the bills.

    Hmmm, great tip. Thanks for that :-)

    Off the top of my head, Vodafone Business we paying around £15 2GB 4G (including roaming in Ireland free - we in Northern Ireland so this part was really needed for us to compare as others where going to charge roaming rates) Unlim mins/texts. Part of that money (can't remember how much) goes into a "fund" which after x term we can use to either pay off a bill or towards new devices. Also remember to switch off roaming from the network side if you do not need it. No scary bills when someone decides to read emails and download attachments while on holiday. They capped our data also. Also a discount for employees taking contracts with Vodafone (or renewing contracts), unsure how much this is but previously with O2 it was 20-30% off the line rental aspect of a refresh contract.
    Most of the deals others have suggested are all consumer deals not business deals.

    Thanks, yes we need business deals. Will check their options.

    Ring them BTW don't go by the deals they have on the business webpage same with O2. Other firms I've no experience dealing with business contracts. Although do take a quick look and note each deal so at least you are "armed" with some information and off course play them off against each other. Personally for us it was the free Ireland roaming which was the killer in the price comparing to others.
    Edit: sorry forgot we did try EE but the pricing structure they have beggars belief, must have taken lessons from credit card companies or something on that one. Just download the pdf they have and good luck trying to figure it out, not the most transparent structure I've seen.
