1000 Minutes / 2GB Data for £4.95 per 30 Days on Lebara Mobile via Uswitch
Posted 3 h, 17 m agoPosted 3 h, 17 m ago
Uswitch has a deal with Lebara Mobile, offering 2GB data. 1000 minutes and Unlimited texts for £4.95 per 30 days (around £5.02 per month).

The telephone customer service was closed when I ported but their online chat is okay. Also they give you £10 free credit when you port in, technically you can’t use this to pay the following month rental but they will usually let you if you go to online chat again. It’s a bit of a faff but you can effectively get two months free rental that way


Great, thanks :)


Ported voda to lebara two months ago no problem. Mvno are treated as a different network for porting purposes


I know. Just mentioned in case people don’t want a one month only deal and want one that continues renewing they can just go for that deal instead.


I was referring to another offer someone brought up, not the £5 MSE deal.

Giffgaff is getting priceyyy


They also throttle speeds as it's a virtual network. I tested with O2 sim and Giff Gaff sim, same phone, and speeds dropped on giffgaff. Be wary people.


£25 and it’s not even true unlimited


Better deals elsewhere,saying that I'm a giffgaff customer lol


Cold, you can get a better deal from 3 or even vodafone at this price

Yep tried everything several times over .. deleting APN config and reinstalling , its annoying when Vodafone say there isn't a problem and there Obviously is.. when I kicked off and said I wanted to leave on Thursdays that they have now notice some plan work that is taking place on the mask i connect to which is due to be completed on the 8th not sure I believe them .. We will see .


Something is to do with the frequency / mast its connected. Your last speed test gives two different results in duration of 1 minute. Can you restart the phone and give a try,sometimes it connects back to other mast.


Just what we were waiting for, thanks OP! Ordered. For those asking, because of Covid you claim your Cashback via email instead of post, just attach the PDF of your bill.


Lucky you! The speed for today


Just need a deal like this in a couple of months when my current Vodafone Fonehouse deal expires. I have essentially the same deal but for only 20GB.

good deal, but dont expect 5g until 2022..........been waiting for nearly a year now (my office is in central london) and still nothing. Jumped to 02 2 weeks ago, and even got 5g at home....


Still £10 a month here on a 12M contract after a bit of a Faf £96 cash back


Data speeds are awful, whenever I away from home it seems to struggle. This was the message the other day. Never used to be like that.. I tried using the speed test before that message but it could not even link to the server🤷 to do the test


I'm leaving 3 now after one year away from EE (going back to EE). I was paying £22 for unlimited everything. It sounds brilliant, its just the signal isn't that good and unlimited data is only great if you can use it. If it works in your area then this is a good deal, it just seems that EE has better coverage and higher speeds. 2 years is a long time for a SIM contract too, you'd have to be confident of the service in your area. Thanks for posting anyway.


Been with three for years. Have cancelled yesterday as 90 of my calls drop now in my town. Ridiculous

As I said EE like all the others can vary region to region, just like BT Openreach Fibre varies exchange to exchange. I’ve tried EE region wide urban & rural on a full EE speed unlimited sim, £37, rarely did it go above 30 megs & never over 40 meg in various mobile devices including a £400 Netgear M2 (Gigabit/up to 2 Gbps) mobile router.


I can agree with this. This is my current speed on ee. I'm on a 4gee max plan from 2017 My wife on vodaphone gets about 30mbit/s max in same area.


Here’s an old screenshot of a speedtest my friend did almost two years ago on EE. He regularly sent me screenshots of download speeds noticeably faster than that from all over London and surrounding cities. Other than Virgin Media customers, most people didn’t have home broadband with 200Mbps+ download speeds and definitely not 55Mbps upload back in 2018.


Go Faster £2 BT squeezing every last penny out


Depends how saturated a area is, EE will cap you when it needs to. EE is the worst performer region wide here, the speeds are that horrific that o2 beats them, then Three & top dog Voda.

Yeah I guess every supplier will have some customers who have bad experiences, sorry you were one of them. But I believe smarty/3 boast 99.8% 4G coverage throughout the country


I was with 3 before moving over to o2 and they were absolutely awful!! Never again but that’s just my experience with them


Yeah easily. Smarty for example shares the same coverage as 3. The larger known mobile network providers are now the worst ones to go to for deals


But can others supply you with the coverage of o2? I’ve been with o2 a few years now and never once had a problem with network coverage


Smarty offer 30GB a month with unlimited texts and calls for £10 a month and it's a 1 month contract so can cancel any time. There are also plenty other suppliers and better deals out there

Oh I see. Oh well still a good deal I guess. Hope my S9 will be good for another couple of years. Ty for the info.


Yes, unfortunately. You have to visit the merchant (Virgin Mobile in this case) via the link on either the Quidco or Topcashback site or app. If you don’t then you won’t earn any cashback as there is no record of you visiting via either of the cashback sites.


I just signed up for this deal. Is it too late to get the cashback? Won't have the SIM and switch provider for a few days. Never used a cashback service before...


Topcashback are now offering an exclusive £15 cashback on the 25GB Data, Unlimited Mins/Text SIM.

Nope, it was a 12 month one. I was on 6gb for around £10.31 a month and tried calling 3 times over the notice period to see if I could get a decent deal but a £3.72 saving for a 12 month tie in seemed more of an insult


Yeah it's about price EE are expensive


EE apparently - unless you mean the price (lol) Advertising Standard Authority says ya can’t BT that’s who...


Were ee offering you a 1 month rolling contract on retention?


Three will probably improve once they've rolled out plenty of 5G. They've got loads of capacity on that. In built up areas though, no point looking past EE and Vodafone at the moment.

I did the follow up question, they didn't phone during the timeslot I chose though. No hope now..


Did anyone here do this and how did it go then? Was it on Skype / Zoom etc?


They probably had no signal (lol) (lol) ;(


Anyone doing this today? They sent me a follow up question yesterday and then it said I'd be called in the afternoon yesterday but I never was.


That was 2 - 3 years ago so I couldn't remember their names. I will suggest you try all platforms as you won't always have the tasks. Most of them will send you an email when there is a survey that fits your profile. I was getting 1 - 2 every month

hahah they have simplified things now. They give clear instructions and all I do is send past 3 months bills... let them deal with it :) and I get the cheques to deposit. Not sure when they will digitise the refunds, that will save a lot of time.. going to back I go once a year :)


going via quidco the 36gb for £13 is still available. **EDIT: At checkout it states "6gb data", so looks like the 6x multiplier isn't being recorded....or valid now.




I'm fine with this current deal. I saw the 36gb deal, but didnt feel I needed 36gb, even for just £1 more.


You should have done it yesterday you would have got 36gb for £13

It should be free. Or you can just use a different network. I recently transferred my three number to Vodafone sim then transferred it back to three. Free of cost.


I'm already on Three and want to transfer to a new three SIM - It seems I need to transfer to PAYG first to retain my number, but all PAYG SIM's now require topups or monthly fees? Anyone know which are still free to do this? Thanks


I was getting less than 1Mbps inside the house in Harrow over the past 6 months, been with them for years but PAC'ed out in the end as work calls were also being dropped regularly. Use the Ofcom signal checker with your postcode before you buy, it gives signal quality both indoors and outdoors. However, even if you have problems inside the house, you may do well with an external antenna connected to a 4G router like the Huawei B525 - a nice, cheaper and more flexible alternative to fibre broadband. Depending on your location, some are getting really good speeds on Three. I've heated as it definitely is a good deal for unlimited data, if you get decent speeds.


interesting...will give that a try then (highfive)

Hi. I'm with you on this one. I'm three customer for like 10 years now, and I had impression the data speed and just signal coverage is is less and less in last few years? I used to be very impressed with three, to the point I was using my private three sim card for data instead of work provided o2, as o2 had zero coverage in places I was working in. Now the roles reversed, I tend to use o2 data more often as it just works. I've unlimited data on three which is a bit useless now as coverage and speed went down hill. And I just signed 2 years contract........

Just as the title says, 100GB for £25 a month. With the first 3 months half price.

Yeah I have a 5G device and you do notice a difference in speed but by not much. I guess it depends on your location.


Nice one, it's good if you can take advantage of 5G


I managed to secure a further discount with EE today, for the 100GB 5G smart SIM plan (18 months) plan for £20 per month. I said O2 are doing the same deal and luckily the upgrades department were able to match this.


That's lucky! ;) Still no link? (popcorn)

I've been using Smarty for a couple of months now. I've never had any issues with signal, unlike on my previous O2 contact. It's even started to use Wi-fi Calling this week (I've noticed the Wi-Fi calling icon appearing in the system bar whilst on a call). Not sure if this is just a test though, as their website still shows that it's unsupported. It's good to know that if I do ever have any signal issues I can just cancel and switch with no repercussions, but not had any issues yet.


Did you actually read my comment? I use smarty. The coverage is OK where I live but whenever I go anywhere else it's poor. "One person"? Have you read through ANY of the 3 or smarty threads? Oh. Dear.


Same I've been on it for a month and had no issues (Preston) I was on O2 before and was worried about a drop in signal but it's been no different for me and if I have problems in the future I can always move back.


...and just because one person has a problem with them doesn't mean it's a bad deal. Sigh. People seem incapable of appreciating that UK mobile coverage can vary a lot and what works for one person may not work for another.


Been with ID for a year now, paying the same but for 10gb data, unlimited texts and 300 minutes so this is a great deal for me, been using so many minutes lately keeping in touch with Family etc, thank you. Never had an issue where I live with network coverage on Three, my work phone is Vodafone and absolutely woeful, I have to leave phone next to back door, O2 is even worse here.

Not heard of either shall explore. Don't like the long tie in/contract


Yes .. i will be be cancelling before Black Friday and get new a contract with cashback and freebies . Being halo customer makes this deal even better which i am


Tends to be for new customers rather than existing. Good deal though.


It’s a shame that no gift with this contract which is usually a speaker , Mastercard or so and also they made contracts 18 months . I signed up on Black Friday for £10(glitch) 40gb with jbl speaker and £60 quidco 12 months contract . 3 weeks later got option to increase to 50gb plan no extra charge.


Anyone around the East Midlands who can comment on coverage? I'm on 3, the past 12moths I've struggled hence looking to change but wanted to see how others faired with BT coverage.

ordered 4pm yesterday - delivered 11am today. Number porting across from Three on Monday. Will never go back to three.


Vodafone plans which has limited data, are full speed.


That one is better, but you have to claim cash back. This one on three other hand is automatic cash back, so you don't need to do anything. If you are methodical, and can periodically claim as per claim schedule, you get it for cheaper. (y)

Does the 50% off airtime friends and family work with this? I have a sim only at 50% off for years now, would be great if this can carry over.


Really helpful thread. OH out of contract with EE so looking for best SIM only offer. Disney+ appeals with a 5 and 7 year old (and I'm a big kid too!), but slightly put off by the 18mth term. I went on a chat (on her behalf!) and asked if I could get Disney+ with the 12mth deal. Told this wasn't possible but they could offer month 2 and 3 free, saving £20. Anyone done any better than that?


With Virgin, my guess would be 'No' ... unless you pay the remaining contract up.


Took up this offer with o2 yesterday. I was paying £12.80 ish per month for 5gb with o2. I was already subscribed to Disney+ with a year's subscription on the offer of £49.99 that I bought in March this year. Called up Disney+ just now and they were happy to cancel that subscription and refund a partial payment so I could then active the o2 six months free offer. Great deal (y)
