Tesco mobile phone tarriffs ?

    Looking for a new mobile phone (a Samsung J700) and Tesco have phones with £20 call credit. Does anyone know what the price of texts and calls to other networks are. The page on Tescos website is missing (I think it might be 5p a text but not sure on the calls).

    It also says that the £20 is credited to the phone when you make your first call or text. Does that mean you need to put money on the phone first to make the text or call before you get the £20 credit

    Thanks for all advice, it is much appreciated.

    Thanks Daft Punk,

    I thought I had read somewhere that you got 5p texts to you favourite 5 numbers. I might be wrong though.

    Dunno why i left that bit out......Calls 10p/ min....Texts 5p...

    To set-up the 'favourite numbers' call 282 free from your Tesco Mobile and follow the instructions. Please allow 48 hours for the discount to your chosen numbers to be active.
    Your five selected numbers must be either standard UK mobile or fixed-line numbers only. Calls and text messages (if applicable) to these selected numbers must be made in the UK to be valid for the half price benefit.
