    Default Sim Only Contracts

    Been with Three for the past year on the All You Can Eat Sim Only 1 month rolling contract for £24 per month.

    I've been happy with it, although the coverage for 4G is limited.

    I'm looking to either change networks to a better plan and have noticed TalkTalk doing an incredible All Inclusive Unlimited deal for £12 per month (no 4G), but I've no idea what their coverage is like. Its supposed to be O2 or Vodafone.

    Is anyone with TalkTalk with any views on there mobile offerings?

    Or are there any better deals anyone is aware of?

    I think I can stay with Three, but I feel I'm now paying through the nose in comparison to other networks.

    I'm with 3 on a sim only contract, which costs me £10 a month, although it is a twelve month contract, so i would say phone them up and maybe negotiate a better offer.

    Being with 3 is the best option for me because when i'm in Italy i pay the same as if i was here in the Uk, plus i've just signed up to talktalk and their mobile offers didn't appeal to me.

    Kinda think I might need something more than 2GB. I'm used using that every 2 days, even with Fibre at home.

    Still a great deal at a tenner for 4G from Three though.

    Price was the underlying factor for me. £35 for full speed Fibre which included the line rental wasn't bad.

    TBF, so long as its installed OK and I've no need to call them, all should be OK. Touch wood.

    ***EDIT***

    Just checked and they have put it up to £20 a month now. Unless u commit to 12 months when it's £17. Scammers!

    If you got Virgin media in your home you can get a real bargain.

    I`m currently on a £11 a month no contract, leave anytime I want to

    I get
    3 gig downloads
    Unlimited TxT
    1200 mins anyone anytime
    Free minutes to virgin customers

    I had to barter and haggle with them to get this as I told em I was leaving them because they were fcking crap. I swore at them. the woman asked why and I told her of my history and go look it up.

    I just got the offer that trueblue924 is on about. I was with Virgin paying £10 for Unlimited data/voice/txts (£17 VIP with £7 loyalty discount). You'd think it was a total bargain but their coverage was total shite.

    Lived with it for a year and just moved to BT Mobile using the EE network (BT now own EE).

    £20 a month and my first speed test at home gave me this:

    My best speed test so far is this one today:

    With Virgin I got between 1.5 & 5Mbps at best on 3G.

    Virgin Mobile is not Plex-friendly and was erratic at best. Avoid.

    Cheers

    Sorry if it's been said before BUT you have to be an existing Talk Talk customer to get the SIM only plan

    I'm on a Vodafone business sim only deal.

    About £41 pm gets me unlimited phone calls/texts, and I think something like 6Gb data.

    Costs about £26 for the primary sim (voice/data), £15 for the secondary sim (voice only), and £0 for the 3rd data only SIM.

    The idea was to use the 2nd sim in a GSM gateway which I never get round to purchasing.

    I'm happy with the value. The only disappointment is that I use a 3G handset and Voda are crippling 3G internet to promote 4G (which is farcical as I'm paying for 4G).
