Makes a good roaming sim for the holidays!
Maybe they are trying to compete with giffgaff's new bundles. Good for anyone who uses Asda Mobile.

Cold,Samsung have no idea how to compete in mid to budget segment. Their mid range and budget handsets are crap and nothing compared to the competition plus overpriced
There's better phones specification wise cheaper than this including the Xiaomi MI A1.
Not a bad deal, but I think the Honor 9 Lite is probably better value.
Then they should be put in some other part of the forum, they aren't a bargain or deal relating to phones. Its good they go cold, they are not a phone deal..
Hot. Does not matter you get it free elsewhere, if you don't have prime, this is a perfect add on to make it for £20 free delivery.
That's not really the point @xx123 , of course these can be had for free but getting one free from Vodafone doesn't get you free delivery at Amazon; hence why cheap Add On items are usually very popular on HUKD. Example https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/amazon-add-on-item-for-those-1999-orders-or-999-book-orders-o2-sim-card-1p-2847913
Probably because this seems like a bit of s ****-take, why would anyone want to pay for something available for free? https://freesim.vodafone.co.uk/
Free in Vodafone's website
thanks for trying. note what Sheffield788 says, non-prime users are keen to find low cost items to top the order up to 'free postage' so put it in your post - good luck with future posts.
That is true, voted cold as you can get for free but then I saw your comment! Have Prime but would have voted hot if this was in the OP!
Hot as well. Yes, you can get it free. But if you don't have prime, this may help to make it for £20 free delivery.
There is someone on HUKD that doesn't realise the networks give PAYG sims away free? @mould completely free EE sim for you: https://shop.ee.co.uk/price-plans/free-sim
Is this post just telling us PAYG SIM cards exist?
But there we go if you put it in your burgler alarm then you can take it out again and use another sim. You assumed that i was talking about your burglar alarm. This post is about 1p mobile not your burglar alarm. Glad we cleared that up. Lol
In my original post I said I was going to use the SIM in my burglar alarm to send SMS update messages, then you quoted that post mentioning using credit for overseas roaming. My alarm is very much attached to my house, so couldn't go roaming...
No its 3p for calls on Three. Its the 321 tariff - 3p per minute for calls, 2p per text , 1p per MB of data So 1p mobile is cheaper unless you are a really low user ( like myself) , that does not use £2.50 per month.
TCB showing as £2.02 only
If you use 200mb data, the Three data rewards SIM has it for free (£2 value on 1p mobile). Same cost for calls, though 2p for texts. I put my father on this deal and it's perfect as he only uses WhatsApp for texting and calling (on WiFi for calls). If he does make the occasional call it's the same cost as 1p without that £2.50 pm min top-up requirement. So if you don't text that often and get good signal with Three, that's the better deal IMO. 1p mobile is still a good shout though.
In original post you said it was for the summer, the vodafone BVB does auto renew every month as long as you have the correct amount of credit on your sim, or you can cancel the bundle at any time. If you don't have credit it reverts back to PAYG
My phone is currently locked to EE going to get unlocked and have got a 3 sim as going to Florida,I have heard about this deal,will I need a contract or is it a matter of just putting £20 on and picking this add on.Thank
I use a three pay sim or data only sim when I travel to USA and it works perfectly fine for what you would need on holiday speeds are what you get here but acceptable. My contact is with Vodafone so I use this in the EU and in many of the countries you get 4g with Vodafone
I am on Three and go abroad fairly often. Three internet speeds are fairly slow but are fine for social media etc and can upload photos ok. As said previously if travelling to America Three is defo the way to go!
OK so this deal is rubbish and avoid Three at all costs. But both the vodafone and O2 deals are 30 day rollover contracts if I'm not mistaken? Ideally I just want a straight up preloaded data sim...
Dont see any for £18.99...£24
Usually 16mbps surfing, 24mbps when 4K runs via Roku, I’m less than a mile from the exchange but Sky always gave me the best speeds, BT, Orange, TitTalk, EE entry Broadbands were all were crap for streaming HD let alone 4K. I can’t fault Sky Broadband or it’s £8.99 all in line and broadband fee, £2 Anytime Extra, £10.99 goodness that works out cheaper than Orange £5 broadband as line rental was much higher on BT (y)
If I'm an existing customer, how can I get this offer?
They can't guarantee 10mb, its not possible for them to do it.
The new Sky router has only 2 ports :(
the gimmicky lights are optional as you get both a plain black back cover and an led back cover *least you should, if retailed packaged and no reason it shouldnt be* (the leds are in the back cover not the phone itself) *as i got a ton of these from the end of last year offer for £50 rebate from alcatel for anytrade in ofc using 1016g for £5 at the time, when cpw had them for £69 + top up, and then the resale was over £100 so ya* and well the specs are decent, the resale price point is not any more, only £10 - £49 BTR (so not worth the time for me, as it would be time waste to make a lost at RTB, well ebay but thats just more effort, when i can currently just order 4034x from o2 and make £10 min profit on each via Buy To Recycle them)
Thanks OP ordered!
Who do you think you are? Saul Goodman?
Decent burner for that price - have some heat.
Did anyone buy using the link in post? It has some deals not available on normal bt site. But when you try to buy a package it goes to a weird looking page that doesn’t look like it’s part of the BT website. Any advice?
Do you mean reward card?
Had an email from BT saying that if I commit to another 12 months I will get 25gb instead of 20gb for £16. Struggle to use 10gb as it is, will just leave it go onto a rolling contract until a good EE offer comes up. Last time I switched it worked out to just under £7pm for my current contract.
Well at least you speak to a U.K. based BT staff member...that won’t happen on Three/o2 or Vodafone most or all are offshore/third party. Vodafone has a minority of call centres actual staffed with Vodafone employees. Frankly you get the odd numpty on EE/BT mobile call centres but the minority is always better than the majority - I find the Irish based EE mobile staff so friendly and willing to help more than the U.K. staff!
We have 3 mm mobiles from BT. Has been flawless for years, it's just using EE. They gave me a mobile signal booster when I moaned about coverage. Had to hassle a bit for the latest cashback but then they accidentally paid me twice :D
Upgrade only available if you been topping up sim for last 6 months @ £5 a month
Same here tried it on an old pay as you go phone, said there is something wrong.
its not working ,,when cheaking its says something wrong call us,,,
“Anon32 13 m ago You have to top up if you do not have a pay as you go account. But worth it for a glove compartment phone” Yes the phone is free with a £10 top up on all available networks or no top up for EE/Vodafone payg customers ‘upgrading’ their payg handset.
Looks like a 2G phone as per reviews. So can't be used on 3G or 4G only providers.
I think it reverts to the normal rocket packs tariff at £10 a month, but you could always cancel it. If you don't have enough credit it won't renew anyway.
You can actually use it, I've used it many times in the Netherlands.
You do what you should have and move to Giff Guff 3GB/Unlimiteds for £10 ie you’ll get more help from GG mods than you will from ‘Capita customer care’on o2/Tesco
What happens after 3 months?
Nice offer, but it seems you can't use the rocket pack in the EU. UK only Seems you can use abroad, after I read the blurb properly When periodically travelling in our Home From Home Destinations across Europe and beyond (HFH), calls and texts to standard UK landlines, UK mobile numbers, HFH landlines, HFH mobiles as well as data usage, will be charged as in the UK. Usage beyond a Fair Usage Policy may attract other charges. Full details, current list of HFH Destinations, charges, and terms are available at tescomobile.com/terms
Believe you have to activate straight away or so the T&C implys
Could you buy this now and activate it later in the year (and still get the extra 50GB)?
Especially when Vodafone Passes are capped at 5GB roaming, 80GB going to go along way streaming when Turk TV bums you out lol https://support.vodafone.co.uk/Vodafone-products-and-services/Vodafone-Passes/Managing-your-Pass/1060513372/Can-I-use-Vodafone-Passes-when-roaming.htm Payg EU map (includes Turkey^ :)) https://www.vodafone.co.uk/cs/groups/public/documents/webcontent/vfcon081336.pdf
Lol you want 50GB free every month ? Not a network alive does that on payg
Exactly. Go Binge/Voda Passes use doesn’t cover every use abroad, £30 for 80GB, 3000 mins calling & unlimited EU texts to ANY EU country when roaming is superb - you can’t get that on a 24m contract to use in the EU for £30
Its the handset and it’s frequencies dependent in the real world how it preforms but on paper EE lead, Voda beat o2 by 1% but Voda are still spending where o2 are cutting back. The scores and 1% is all 2/3/4G coverage combined on all networks.
EE really needs 4G on as the 900 MHz 2G went to 4G, and thus it is affected by data traffic as the base will throw you off even when there is a signal it will pass you to another less saturated base station which may struggle to connect you, pain in the butt. North of the central belt EE got tons of gov money to build additional base stations for coverage/mobile broadband 800mhz 4G (emergency services contract) seems to be the only freqency requirement but alas EE will be free to add more frequencies as it wants/needs. Remember handsets wont always work beat on all networks if the firmware is configured to the initial networks frequencies. No idea about central belt past the main roads/trains lol but good info for other people, what’s the signal like on all networks 2/3/4G in the surrounding areas of NM ?
On paper or real world most places I have EE and a O2 some O2 is better works in most hospitals. Better in Bradford, Stoke On Trent, Birmingham Chester Manchester Derby so not really sure if you talking about on paper or real usage.
I am in Scotland travel between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Ee in Newton Mearns is absolutely pathetic. O2 is better
o2 in Scotland outside cities used to be top dog, Vodafone definitely is better these days.
Its always the case with cheap Samsung phones. Not enough RAM + Touch wiz taking too many resources = poor experience. Huawei and Moto do a much better job at this price point.
These usualy locked to o2?
Might have a half decent camera. The attraction of the J3 was Amoled. Without that feature it has now become a feeble offering.
You don't have to pay for the top up when buying from O2. You pick the option, but don't actually pay at the checkout. O2 expect you to pay the top up after you receive the phone/SIM.
Plus a £10 top up.
Where? Pics or didn't happen.
Checked loacl store which says £799.99 so this really needs expiring and as far as i can see no one has got it at that price.
Bluetooth is still way behind wired earphones when it comes to sound quality. Even my Sony wh1000xm2 using ldac from oreo aren't anywhere near the quality of an equivalently priced, wired set. Usb c might be okay if they start making wires with small built in dac etc, like the lightning audeze cipher cables.
So did anyone figure if this was an actual misprice?!
They're both waterproof. But yes, the S9 Plus does win out in many areas. Overall, it's probably the better phone. But for the difference in price (actual, not RRP) the gap is surprisingly small. The Huawei only has one area where it's significantly better; zoom. Up to 5x lossless using a hybrid of optical zoom and oversampling. 4K video recording is an utter mess on the Huawei. Anyone with any intention of recording 4k video should avoid buying one until/unless it is fixed. I suspect it can't be fixed, as the image stabilization comes from oversampling, rather than hardware.
Got me my broadband deal afterallllllll £8.99 all in for 12 months.
you can't use the prepaid card to pay your EE bill .. and the cashback, if it eventually pays, is only equivalent to just over 5 months' worth of bills, so you're still paying full price for over a year. that said, £21.50 isn't a bad price though
Coolio. I keep refreshing the page but the button is always greyed out. We'll see if I get the chance to talk to them on live chat before 11pm.
I’m still waiting on my £125 Quidco cb from August. It was originally declined, I’ve pretty much accepted I’m not getting it.
Someone else did ...
Great deal, did you post it at the time?
Few months back I bought from 02 for £99 ..it was unlocked!
good to see EE helping out gangsters who desperately need burner phones ;)
Note 8 and pixel? Are you rich?
Come on Mrswirch..I'm after a note 8 and google pixel 2 xl...make my day!!!
Come on mate, it's £7. This ain't no iPhone x, get it unlocked, probably only take a screwdriver and some chewing gum.
Now it's 1 ;)
Have got a 2 year old Huawei p9 which was updated again for the 4th time ota in the last few weeks. My last Samsung galaxy never saw a single update. Apple's updates bajanxed my iPhone. Having said that, I don't get why they havent gone in for qi charging on their phones...
Have you received your phone yet? I placed an order yesterday and was just wondering :)
Check out this week's gadget show
This phone was on the gadget show last night against the I phone X and Samsung s9 plus where it really excelled was in very low light photos ...won hands down check it out on catch up
Correct this was displayed on the website but has been removed since.
