Which Network and Tariff are you on?

    Im looking at a new tariff and network i think

    im with Virgin at the moment (and the lass) and we each spend about £35-£40 (each) a month on pay as you go (which we both prefer)

    Is there a better network that give better value, in texts and calls a month

    we dont want monthly payments, as due to one my ex (BI***) left me with bad credit :x :x which is still being fixed to this day :roll: , this means i cant go for pay monthly tariffs.


    if u are a virgin cable customer u could have the 300-300 with virgin for 10 quid a month

    not enough texts lol, were text aholics and very mild usage of call min's

    thanks for the reply tho

    We dont get Virgin cable up here as it runs thru cable, they stopped when they got to Carnoustie and never went any further north... gggrrrr

    that sounds pretty good, thing is where do you get an old one?

    Think I've got some, My pals tend to lose phones like no-bodies business so when I see them for free online I order them. I'll post back later if I have any left. If your interested and will cover postage I'll send them your way.

    Or you could get the free Orange SIM cards, similar to the o2 Genie, but a £10 top up gives you 300 texts, £20 gives 600 and £30 gives you 1000.

    that one on that page, text anytime for £9.99

    is that £9.99 for 1000 texts plus you have £9.99 worth of calls ?

    That's for the SIM itself. Then it's more money on top for the top ups! I'm not 100% sure if the free o2 SIMs offer the same as the £9.99 one though.

    well to be honest id pay the £9.99 for the 1000 texts and £9.99 for whatever call time

    thanks everyone for the replys

    Voda 1000 xnet 50 text £31 month

    I would see if you can take out a contract in another family members name, and use your own bank account as the direct debit.

    Just because pay monthly is simply better value.

    Have you tried T-Mobile? They take large deposits (maybe a few months) from those with low credit scores but may give you a contract.

    Woo Hooooooo !!!

    Just went for the Pay monthly on Virgin, i just said ach to hell with it if i get a refusal, i get one....

    It passed and the best thing was it passed twice with me and Mrs saxo..excellent !!

    The tariff i chose was the "Sim only" 1000 texts and 200 min for £20 a month which i think is a brilliant deal.

    I just cant believe it passed the credit check and what surprises me even more it passed twice :w00t: :w00t: :w00t:
