Is there an amount of time you have to be away from a company to qualify for TopCashbak? I left Vodafone in January, to go with an EE sim only deal I got through TCB. If I go back to Vodafone, or any other deal TCB has next January, would I qualify for the money, or would I have to be away for longer than a year?

krisdeb

I have this available as existing customer. 50GB for £15, 200GB for £20. I'm thinking about 50GB at this very moment.

Justsuperman

This is all correct, but trust me the average consumer really doesn’t care for 5g this very moment. I’m on FTTP with BT 330 down. Banks and businesses maybe. And weather you like it or not apple is a huge influence and 5g won’t take off fully before they get in the game and apple is actually making there own modems in next few years and if it’s anything like there A series chips which are the best in the industry it will be huge. Just FYI I have an android phone a mi9. also own iPad Pro 2018.

seaniboy

Well it has spectrum for a network not some 5G spectrum as a network. Continuous spectrum, the other 3 were complaining (crying) to Ofcom about it https://www.techradar.com/news/rivals-claim-threes-spectrum-variation-will-hand-it-5g-advantage It wont cost more than EE lol, it will cost BT revenue though. Of course people are interested in Threes continuous spectrum, upgrades to 4G, backhaul and 5G, BT still has exchanges in cities still on ADSL/ADSL MAX where people want unlimited 4G as a replacement but capacity is low and speeds are as bad as BT Openreach. People, businesses alike aren’t going to hold back for Apple 5G for another 18 months, why Apple went to Qualcomm with its legs between its tail and said: ok we pay you royalties now like our agreement says, sorry we no pay you till now, get into bed it’s cosy and your cash is on the side (lipstick) (lipstick) Meanwhile nearly ever other big manufacturer has 5G launching this summer at the latest... Wait for Apple ? People need 5G, many businesses are banking on 5G - Apple doesn’t know if it really wants Qualcomm after making up or if it will buy the Intel modem division (lol) Wait 18 months+for a £1500 5G iPhone... erm the masses won’t.

Interesting, I was wondering the exact same. Has anybody been able to verify this for sure?

lafonk

I don't think so. This as my first time doing of these deals. It looks like fonehouse sells you the plan and then basically hands you over to vodafone who deal with everything, except for the manual rebates you have to do with fonehouse. So you ask for PAC with current carrier, give code etc. to vodafone and it all switches over. It updated in my account to my transferred number quickly.

I have been looking for the right mix of international roaming and decent data/mins seanyboy mentioned forwarding a sim to your number when travelling as these roaming day passes get expensive. I've stuck with 3 as its the only one which offers decent roaming to more than just Europe and their easyjet handsfree plus speeding boarding is awesome

ssjinzo

Another option would be pay a extra pound for sky to get unlimited minutes text and 2gb data. Data can also be saved and collected. No international minutes but moved my dad over to that from 3. He was using about £10 every month or 2. 3 do 200mb free every month but only for a new PAYG sim I asked if they could provide him with 200mb free on his old number which he has been with 3 321 for years and they told him no so I switched him over to sky.

seaniboy

Heat from me, I wouldn’t use but for cheap Vodafone access for minimal use/international it certainly ticks all the boxes.

saeed2810

321 sim is good for emergency as is cheaper 3p,2p and 1p but 3 network isn't better than Vodafone and turns expensive if you want to use 500 mb data and some mins . Also other perks with this Lebara too - 41 destination 100 mins and 1 gb data that can be used for Google maps or whatever use ? This sim could be great option for kids too, not worrying about credit or monthly bills (capped plan ) with a reasonable allowance to use outside

woldranger

Why would you want to spend £5 a month for an emergency phone? Just stick in a payg 321 sim or something similar.

Lol. It's nothing to do with students not working full time. It's because they are generally young, gullible and have tons of disposable income from student loans. They are a cash cow for these companies. The amount of money most students spend is obscene.

Bilal_Muhammed

Not every student does it. In fact most students barely have enough to make ends meet and not to mention the work they have to do, revising for exams etc. Student aren’t even earning 15K a year. They also have to pay a lot of money for accommodation whilst continuing to study and have a low paying job.

If you're planning on using it in a caravan I wouldn't buy a plug in dongle as previously suggested. Just buy any 4G Mifi device so all the family can connect to the internet at the same time, I use an Alcatel Y800 (it allows ten users at the same time if I remember correctly) in my touring caravan and it's simply plugged into a mains usb charger if we're on electric hook up or into the 12V system when off grid. You can also connect a Fire tv stick to the Mifi !

DavieJones

A similar thing happened to me but on a mobile contract. iPhone 8 with 5Gb of data for £32pm over 24 months. Seemed pretty good at the time as the cheapest I could find a secondhand iPhone 8 was something over £400 and the best sim only deal was about £8. To pay the extra £100 over the 24 months seemed a good option to me, as I didn't have to fork out over £400 up front, and would be getting a brand new phone instead of a used one. The contract was broken down as £28pm for the phone and £4 for the plan. The plan price was guaranteed not to increase by more than the RPI every June or something similar. About 30p I was thinking. As you, my plan was no longer available after 4 months and I was transferred onto a £12 package. If I was initially offered the phone at £40 a month I would never have taken it, as there were better deals around at the time. I called and was offered a £9 plan but with less data (which was suitable for me as I never go over 2Gb anyway). They dropped this to £7. They said that I could walk away from the plan but I still would have been left with having to keep paying for the phone for the next 20 months. A great scam in my eyes, to either flog a load of phones at RRP on an interest free basis should people decide to walk away when you increase the price of the plan, or a way to actually charge a much higher price after just a few months should people not check what they are being charged or can't be bothered to question the increase. I would be expecting an increase in price in the near future if I was you, as they don't seem to be able to offer no price increases for the length of the contract these days.

Oh the first part you might of seen, in other deal thread that user was so postive that you do not experience bad problems . The second part I know whereas white Virgin sims might be good but purple ones due internal changes they are bad

Cause they "don't" provide all with 4g. Now you stop it you said ee don't give ppl different speed, otherwise Ofcom would have something to say, now you saying and quote above "doesn't mean that they still give them max speed." So now you just bore off and shut up what you obviously do not know what you talking about. And by the way I just did a speed test on ee and bt and both in 75Mbs range.

y_am_I_buying_this

Haha I wasn’t proven wrong. Just because ee provides 4g to someone doesn’t mean that they still give them max speed I don’t know how that proved me wrong. But whatever. Now if you could just bore off and leave me alone that would be great.

iceburnmarko

Yes just like you when you were proven wrong with your statement that EE can not give inferior product to some of their virtual customers. Yet they doing just that with for example white telecom has no access to 4g nor wifi calling whilst others do. So to answer the question to your username "why am I buying this" its cause you do not know what you buying and than live in denial.

Wait if you choose the 200gb deal if you’re a BT plus customer does that mean you’ll get 400gb a month for £20? as it’s double data for bt plus customer no?

Justsuperman

Most likely, I used to use over 100gb a month when broadband was down for awhile around 2 years ago it's Defo doable. And 5g is even faster but they want to charge £ for it and not many people actually care so I think 5g prices will come down a huge amout by end of 2020

Ollie222

I agree the 200gb offering is brilliant value, I'm guessing they're assuming that most people won't use anything like that much.

Justsuperman

I have BT FTTP and pay £60 a month for 330/50 broadband, and had a sim only 24gb unlimited calls and texts £15 which isn’t a bad deal at all. but I’ve just upgraded for £5 to 200gb unlimited calls and texts which is insane value I don’t use much data currently as I’m home bound but when I’m out and about working and travelling can easily use about 50gb a month as I watch a lot of videos and stream tidal on the go.

Ollie222

I just rang asking for details about getting a PAC code and spoke with a very nice guy. I mentioned that cost was the main reason for considering leaving and he went through the options he had available. I've just noticed a typo in my original post, I've now got 25gb and not 20gb (which is what I had originally). I also asked about switching over a couple of other sim cards we have and he offered £17 for 2 x 8gb and £27 for 2 x 15gb and he also offered £30 for 3 x 20gb. These prices were all much more expensive and then discounted heavily to get down to the prices above so you need to remember at renewal time otherwise the price will jump up. My past experience of retentions deals (with various providers) have never been brilliant and have been pain to arrange whereas this time around everything was quite simple. I imagine it's just luck of the draw with who you speak to and what they have available to them at the time.

mchilli

I think I had a cashback redemption deal through affordable mobiles about 2 years ago. They had an online portal where you uploaded the bills it was quite hassle-free as long as you're good with a calendar. I wouldn't trust anything these days that requires postal submissions. These guys make money from hoping that the requirements are so difficult and annoying that people just end up not bothering to claim, and one save Missed a claim they void the rest of the claims. So the idea is the more hassle means the more reward. But these postal submissions are setup to fail.

Sorry but having just been let down by Affordablemobiles.co.uk wound not trust them honouring any deal!!!
