Nope you only need a virgin media broadband installed to get the £25 unlimited deal.


You still appear to have ignored the AUP.


She done nothing wrong in my eyes with usage 400gb. But the £25 virgin mobile sim deal isn't fixed to a 100gb allowance its unlimited so to that user getting kicked off. I would make a complain straight away to OFCOM. i just had a read here otes to editors: Virgin Mobile’s Truly Unlimited customers will enjoy unlimited texts, minutes and data without caps or throttling. Truly Unlimited is for consumers only and not to be used for commercial purposes. To be eligible for Truly Unlimited customers must take a Virgin Media broadband service or broadband bundle i.e. broadband, TV and/or landline.Truly Unlimited is the UK’s only unlimited plan with tethering, throttling, speed restrictions or caps. Priced at £25 a month Truly Unlimited is cheaper than competing plans, which due to restrictions limit customer’s use and offer less value.Eligible customers can get Truly Unlimited by calling customer services, going online or visiting a Virgin Media store.Up to 50Mbps speed boost refers to download speeds.Truly Unlimited is available as a 12 month SIM Only plan or can be purchased with a handset. It is available across Virgin Mobile’s full handset range.Virgin Mobile uses EE’s network – offering superfast 4G speeds


Pal usenet is much safer way to to download all things without getting into trouble no p2p or filesharing. Just join upto a usenet server and google NZB files away you go.


£48 cashback for a 12 month SIM only upgrade of £25 a month with unlimited data Hmm, so Quidco only offer the unlimited £25 deal rather than this £20 one? And by 'Sim only upgrade', do you need to have a VM sim only contract already to quality? I am an existing Virgin Media fibre broadband customer but not a virgin mobile customer yet. I'm fine with getting the £25 deal over this, if the above cashback applies, even though I'm unlikely to surpass 100GB.

Should probably edit this. Completely incorrect and might mislead people Red extra and red entertainment are different things. This is red extra which doesn't come with any free subscriptions


Same deal on Dont forget quidco which is £10 cashback on top

My order is still on pending from Monday so I just called to check. The chap i spoke to said there were some activation issues with Vodafone but it is a Red Entertainment bundle. So I'm going to wait. I will call back again if I have issues but I feel confident from the chat I just had with them.... :D


My bad you are correct, it’s that are a company of CPW


Buymobiles is nothing to do with CPW. Buymobiles is the same company as Affordable Mobiles (A1comms).


Sorry to hear about those who got this plan and are now in a mess. But the 50GB plan on is still going for £17.50 after cashback, and accept pdfs of the bills which makes it a good deal and much more convinient hope it helps someone

Your analogy is good but Levi never shrink your jeans after 2 years of use so you buy new once

This is just a wonderfully idiotic post: with 250mb data, you can just simply kill yourself before even check your emails.


Actually, I think it is only iPhone owners who pay Levi prices; they are made in EXACTLY the same sweat shops as the £9.99 jeans in Primark; and pretty much to the same standard.

I noticed my box was unsealed too and box was tatty but no big holes or anything, everything was perfect inside though so did not raise it with CPW.


I cancelled my order for the case. Was not sure how much bulk it would have added and it is the small size of the compact that has appealed to me and as the phone is already waterproof /dust proof I think I might be able to get away with just a screen protector for now. Nothing to do with the colour :) The price has already gone up now anyway. There was a 251mb update on the compact today , 1st September security update. Compact downloaded it automatically. Can not see any option to deselect automatic software updates myself.


Did you get anywhere with this issue? Mine arrived today and the box was also bashed and not sealed. Phone seems ok but this isn't very good.


lets see how the phone looks then :p edit: or... maybe you dont have case yet?


On the three website the compact is not one of their supported handsets for wi-fi calling. I am on Vodafone myself so a nice bonus feature to have.

Is it me or are the prices for data going up all the time? Ive been on 20gb for £20 for years now. So Only the 45gb seems like a deal to me. The rest are about average. Not gonna vote either way.


Their customer service is really poor


Why does Vodafone deals usually get cold votes. I understand their Customer Service is rubbish or are the deals poor too? They used to be the top operator 10 years ago. Wonder what happened

Yep! Best price I have found, and I'm all about giving the people choices.

I get the same deal for £9


Lol. Have a data sim and a phone sim, can work out cheaper and two networks are always better than one! 1pmobile does 1p calls/texts on EE 2/3/4G if you are mainly a data user, Three data sim in a Mifi with Go Binge (3/2/1p rates). Set up a mate of a mate up in the Highlands on this set up as dial up only available on a small exchange, call coverage/Netflix with the ability to use Wi-fi Calling with Mifi where EE fails the odd place Three Mifi/Wi-fi Calling allows connectivity, they have a dual sim 4G Android in the car glovebox with payg o2/Voda sims, up there all networks are hit and miss.


Paying £13 took me two hours haggling with the customer relations team over bloody £18 for they kept on saying £18 offer good you get binge ayce data blahhahahha. After one hour they came back with £17 I rejected it again I said drop my unlimited minutes to the lowest possible 200 minutes which I never use and lower my monthly payment. He came back with £13 200 minutes AYCE Data unlimited text 30gb hotspot binge. Depends who you get at the day some agents are bloody hardwork some agents don't want the stress arguing over a few quids and give in easy and offer you a nice deal.


I found that by going through the upgrade option for live chat and then explaining I didn't really want to upgrade but wanted a better deal, they then started to offer up the goods. I'd previously been told to call a number of times using the other chat options.

How? Each iPhone priced differently. It’s about 50% you get back after 2 year


Look at any 2 year old iPhone, and that's about what it'll be worth.


Hot deal. Battery life is not great though 😪


I’ve had mine a year next month, I can sell it for £600-700 now. Cex selling them for £840 still. What would this phone be worth in 12 months?

I wouldn't recommend this deal. I picked it up, and they originally put me on the wrong plan, their regular 1GB plan. When I called them up to fix it, they put me on the correct tariff, but on a 12 month contract without notifying me. Now, customer service refuses to help me when I explain my situation, so I'm stuck in this contract.


that what i thought,.... will call CPW tomorrow to confirm whats going on


I Its a monthly rolling contract.


anyone else having issues with this deal? i bought it but according to VM its a pay as you go sim (even though it states Pay monthly on the sim card)?


I found them average or just above from the past 7 years experience.

Here's my experience... Called 333 and spoke to the Upgrade team (I'm on Sim Only 12MO, due to end in next 3 weeks). They would only offer me the standard 100GB for £20. No other options, even though I have now been with them 5+ years with perfect payment history. I then contacted them via their online chat. As my request was considered an upgrade, they the asked me to call 333. I changed tact, and asked the chat representative if they could specifically help me with a Price Plan Change. They replied Yes, they could. I am currently on Three 12GB/month for £14/month, unlimited calls and texts. I told them I was looking for a tariff that offered me unlimited data, minutes and texts for the same amount. (I also have an additional 20/GB a month on a secondary contract with EE paying £25/month), so was paying £39/month jointly between both providers for 32GB total allowance. The web chat rep went away and came back to me with the following deal (btw - this wasn't considered an upgrade, even though it essentially is!) - Unlimited Data, Unlimited Texts, 600 Minutes, 30GB Hotspot Advanced Plan for £15/month, an extra +£1 to what I was paying before. This will now reduce my total outgoings from £39/month to just £15/month with unlimited data included. £288 saved over the next 12 months, now with unlimited data! :) Top Tip - The web chat reps seem to be able to help with a Price Plan Change, but will redirect you to call 333 if you ask for an upgrade. Tell them what you want to get out of it and put the ball in their court! - oh and above all, be patient and BE POLITE! :D


I have just signed up for this deal through quidco. Its my first time using it, can someone give me an idea on how the £70 cashback works?

I use Tesco app for years and call quality is just fine, as all SIP providers offers. Better quality on Apple iPhone, worst on Android. But I ca't complain as never paid for calls, as when £1 finishes, I just register new number and have £1 again, plus free calls to landlines.


Sorry cold from me, a betamax service called freevoipdeal is just over a euro a minute and you get 120 days free landlines and and this is crucial it's a sip service so you can use the best android app which is csipsimple, the call quality thru Tesco's app will be garbage as are all these other internet calling apps because the app is resource hungry. Cold from me


Then your point is incorrect. You can join the service and Tesco give you £1 worth of credit, and this lasts for 180 days. Therefore you do not need to topup at all. You can simply let it lapse after the 180 have gone by.


My point is, it isn’t free when you need to top up £6 to get the free calls. That needs to be made clear in the title.


I just register new number and get £1 free :) Doing this for over few years and enjoying free calls.

Networks run off O2 mate. Why did you leave?


They have a Tesco Mobile shop in my local Tesco Extra and the staff there are far from clueless. I found them very helpful when I was with them.

Maybe because you said you got off the phone with BT and they offered to upgrade you and give you double data. When I go online there is no mention of double data but maybe that's because I already have a sim only deal from them so would be upgrading this which means no reward card or double data. No extra speed 4g either. Can't even find a 5gb essential plan, seems to go 1,3,6gb
