Wait till you need customer service!! Absolutely shocking worst I’ve ever come across........I was with EE for years......never again for that reason


That’s what they offered me.


I rang them with the intention of leaving, to go to three for the data, but I also have a line for my son and I share my data. They said, after disappearing a few times and coming back, that because I had been with them for a while, they could do this deal; which isn’t displayed anywhere, I think it was just what she was able to cobble together. Hope that helps/makes sense.


How did you get it for £20, I went on chat and told me £30 was best they could do for a upgrade


Like you say, if you only use a small amount of data, then it makes sense. I share my data with my son, so it’s 50Gb each, which is more than plenty; so it makes sense for us.

You have unlimited data and unlimited hotspot tethering, you can even use a Mifi or 4G router now (embarrassed)


Maybe they stream You Tube or the likes ;) you could always be less tight and go unlimited data for £4 more (ends 19th Feb).

got nowhere with them, the even quoted the "hot uk" website as a scam - lol. Seem to get a different response from each service agent. maybe time of the day is key.


Keep pushing for what you want with Three Support someone will eventually give in to come out with 20 months for free I'm laughing (lol) just figured out it is 17 months after they take £15 for the first 38 days still not bad though 😁


Kept complaining on slow data speeds and the fact they messed up my number transfer and took 3 days and transferred £40 from Pay as You Go that I got for free awhile ago this morning went back and sliced the price down to £5 a month permanently so technically I now have 20 months for free (lol) 8)


How did you manage that?


Do you have to be out of contract to get them to lower/change your bill to get cheaper monthly payment? I got a unlimited everything sim only in Nov 2018 for £20 minus £75 Quidco which has tracked but yet to be paid, thinking I’d wait for this to be paid then try my luck moving down to 600min to see how much they will knock off.

Was tempted but they're using Three's network which I just cancelled due to really slow speeds


Very true , but it's very easy to pass a credit check for a SIM only deal,unless someone is declared bankrupt


Also worth noting that this deal has NO credit check so might be useful to those with a less than perfect credit rating.


Once your 12 month contract is up, ring up Three retentions department and they'll probably give you a better deal, and don't usually ask you to go on a new contract and is then just a rolling 30 day plan.


Yes it;s a 12 month contract.

I must've been lucky the ones I've dealt with have been OK and in Britain rather than a load of jinglies in the sub continent

Got 8gb for the same money from Plusnet a few months ago.. Their recent offers have been far from good compared to what they usually offer.

Just changed to ID mobile from 3. Went for the 9gb for £10. Provided pac via app (a nice touch no call centre waiting) and number came over within 36 hours


Heat from Me (y)


Ah right, thanks for letting me know. Luckily my mum and dad have their own emails so I can associate each sim with each email account :)


Yeah really simple, just ask for the Pac code from their supplier. Phone up the new supplier and they'll do the rest. Your old sim will cease then you just put in the new sim. Takes about a day, but they tell you 2 just in case.


My kids currently on 4gb for £8 with id. Been great, no issues at all past year or so.

15GB Data, £15 pm / 12 months on BT Mobile  for existing members + £60 rewards card
Found 6th FebFound 6th Feb
the plan initially costs £15 pm for existing members but will also come with a £60 rewards card effectively reducing it down to £10 per month

Can you not get both?


Quidco is offering £80 cashback instead although I suspect the rewards card is more reliable. Heated btw


The guy was telling fibs then and lost me as a customer - I went with EE instead, although it's the same company so no loss really


The terms and conditions say it is available for new and existing customers


I get 100gb for £20 a month.

You can't go from VF contract to VF contract - I've already posted the method - VF contract (ask to go PAYG, wait 30 days) - PAYG (don't topup) - VF contract


Yes don't mess around, logon to VF account & download bill, logon to click on the claim tab that's valid, upload your bill & you're done - btw remember if you move your existing number to the new Sim you must update the number on the account before you submit your claim


You can email to get your cash back with this lot rather than need to post so maybe give them a try


No, I transferred from Voxi (a Vodafone-owned MVNO [Mobile Virtual Network Operator], which is technically a Pay As You Go plan for under 30s) to Vodafone Pay Monthly. A very easy transition, completed by the Vodafone backend team that did not require a PAC.


so you transferred your number from voda contract to new voda contract ? i was told i had to move to payg first.

Yes, I called them this morning as well and they were really good. Can't remember the last time I could say that about a Phone company.


Looks like this deal is back on but you do have to wait 90 days for the delivery of the gift. Still a good deal in my opinion for people looking for a SIM only deal. Also available with £23pm 10GB Data!


I’ve just clicked on the link and this deal is still available :) (y)


I only payed £42 for the PlayStation in a eBay deal so this is only a good deal if you need a SIM deal.

I did not realise 3 was bad in London, I am in the sticks and used my unlimited plan instead of broadband for a couple of years tethering 6/7 devices at once, it was not super fast but good enough for Netflix etc., I guess its where you are....


Vodafone signal and speed is much better than Three in London. Check signal and data speed before buying Three or Virgin unlimited data deals. Unlimited deals look very nice on paper but as per my previous experience with unlimited data on Virgin, it is the worst network I ever used.


not voted but for a few quid more you could get 3's unlimited everything..(with cashback)


Why cold?

Avatardeleted1629571Get dealGet deal

Three were the last holdout for this. They’ve now changed so that all contracts taken after December 18 have rises for sim only too.


On these contracts where they multiply the data allowance only the original data allowance gets rolled over if not used. So, for example, if you get 3 x data on a 4GB contract you will get 12GB of data each month but only 4GB of it will be allowed to roll-over per month if you don't use it.


Does Virgin support VoLTE (voice calling on 4g or goes it drop to 3g for calls)?


Good deal, but be weary that Virgin tend to increase the price halfways through the contact. Always review the reasons for increase and tell them to credit you the amount if the service is not included in your virgin package.


Not surprising - Virgin use EE's network :-)

Probably find that from 29/03/2019 all networks will be subject to roaming charges.


Worth noting that it's a 12 month contract.


I think it does as it is extra, I have giffgaff for £10 per month, I should get 3GB but I get 1GB as an extra and I get that each month. To my knowledge, it should apply for the entire length.


Not too sure about the veryme since I am not on Vodafone. You could research or type it in google as it is bound to be there. (Sorry!)


Just noticed I spelt it wrong lol. Changed it in the title. Glad you guys knew what this meant.

If you switch to this from a plusnet 30 day tariff do you still get the reward card?


I joined last week. Had a txt and email yesterday that my direct debit had been cancelled and my account was restricted. Feared the worst with some of the bad customer service comments they get on here but I got straight through without waiting on hold and they've set it up again. My data stopped working, presumably due to the restriction, but is back on today.


Thanks.... At last resonable prices for some data!


I joined plusnet recently and found that my text messages were not being sent, rang customer support and they said it will be fixed in 5 days, still same issue after 5 days so rang again and they are sending a new sim, Could be an issue with old sim they said but they are not really sure. Any one else experienced this?

Sorry to go off topic but There's a promotion this month if you buy/upgrade direct from EE with the P20 pro you can claim a free Huawei smart watch


Argos was a mis-price and they cancelled the orders!


Personally, I would opt for the p20 pro. The only thing the s9 has over the p20 pro is the screen. At least that is want matters to me. The camera on p20 is hands down the best. Extremely smooth. No lag or slow down. So performance, you would not notice any difference in general. Plus, you save some money. Don’t forget, you have 30 days to send it back if you don’t like it.


Phone itself cost £399 in Argos, leaves lot of money to pick one of sim only tarrifs... Exaple: I pay tenner at Vodafone through for 30gb data and unlimited mins and text. Tied only in 12 month contract with SIM, much better options and at the end better price too my way (399+240= £639)


I'm considering the exact same deal from this morning's phone call. I was wanting the S9 for that price but they can only do this one for under £30 a month. Not sure whether to choose this phone over S9.

Exactly. Plus Broadband and BT Fibre are the same, just different named price plans and cost. And any broadband provider with a mobile division should be forced by Ofcom to provide unlimited data on the customer sim when faults arise on their broadband network - not using it as a marketing tool. No double data offer on the link above @ShaneDarch posted:


does this still work if its family sim pack?

cambourne03 This is an okay deal as well if you cant get the BT one


It's for Plus Broadband accounts. One of the benefits is double data. For ordinary BT fibre accounts there is no double data available.

Thanks for the advice, managed to get the below!


It's been mentioned many times. Do not mention you have a friend with a deal because they will not match it. Do not mention this website. Just say something like you want to change price plan so as to make it more affordable. If they offer cheaper take what's on offer and maybe talk to them later again to see if a better deal is available. If they say they will need to put you through to customer relations say yes.
