Dodge those RPI contract increases with Tesco Mobile

A lot of you may have received a text message from your network recently. I know I have. On my Vodafone plan I’ve received this text which pushes my bill up by 3.2%. This, if you check your payslip, will probably be way higher than your most recent …

MWC – A chat with Marc Allera as EE increase coverage.

My first ever mobile phone was connected to Orange. I stayed as a customer all through the transitional phase as T-Mobile and Orange joined forces to eventually become EE. The new brand seems to have woven its way into our subconsciousness rather quickly, and they have pushed hard …

Honor 6X Launches on Three UK

How does £16 per month sound for your next smartphone? The Honor 6X has now arrived on Three UK and, if you’ve already seen our first impressions, you’ll know what it looks like. It comes with a dual 12+2 megapixel rear camera for wide aperture range, an 8 …

More SIM only deals – 30GB on Three for not that much

Yesterday we offered up some Vodafone deals for you big data users, but over on Three UK there’s yet more SIM only and contract plans for data hogs. Plus, when you use cashback sites like Quidco, things get even better. As an example, £22 per month gets you …

Tesco Mobile slash the price of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

With Mobile World Congress just around the corner and a raft of new handsets about to be announced, it’s a good time to check for deals on the handsets that are out there now. Tesco Mobile have just been in touch and they’re offering a pretty good deal …

Huawei Mate 9 available on Three UK

In my opinion it’s one of the best phones to have been announced last year. Now it’s available on the high street for the buying public. Three and Huawei have just announced that the Mate 9 is going on sale in some of the Three stores and also …

EXCLUSIVE – Yes, yes. The OnePlus 3 IS coming to O2

So, while I was mourning the loss of our Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (it’s only lasted a week and there seems to be some issue with the graphics driver), I received another email. It was from our mysterious, but trusted, source. The same one who mentioned that the …

Vodafone Smart platinum 7 now available

Remember that Smart platinum 7 we told you about just days ago ? It’s now available to buy for just £295 on Pay As You Go or from a mere £28 per month (with a £20 up-front charge) on contract (1GB data, unlimited everything else). In addition, you’ll …

EE launch more own-brand kit. Say hello to the Harrier and Harrier Mini

This entire site started way back in 2002 when Orange launched the SPV. It was an own-branded smartphone manufactured by a little known (and little-mentioned) company called “HTC”. Now EE, who have swallowed up Orange (and T-Mobile), are launching two new smartphones – the Harrier and Harrier Mini. …

The iPhone. Let’s try and make it a bit less expensive.

There’s something about the new iPhone 6 that is both a positive and a negative at the same time. Fans and owners will tell you that the device is “reassuringly expensive”. This is a good thing for some, but at the same time it means that most will …

Vodafone fixed price promise announced

Nasty price rises. Nobody wants that. Nasty unexpected price rises? They’re even worse. Recently we’ve seen the uproar caused when mobile operators crank up prices mid-way through contracts, and – like utility providers – fixed-price offers could help to reassure potential and existing customers alike. Vodafone have today …

BT & EE Sign MVNO Agreement

BT and EE have today announced that  EE are to provide MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) services for BT. BT, who exited the mobile space some 10 years ago with the sale of their BT Cellnet network to O2, have already won a license for a 4G network …

[Opinion] The art of the money grab

I’ve been a T-Mobile customer for a couple of years now, and overall I’ve been pretty happy with their service. Crucially, the plan has unlimited data with a ‘fair usage policy’ – which turned out to be 500MB. Naturally, being a blogger, I go over that limit within …

MVNO Feature – Ovivo. Plans from £0 per month

Welcome back to our irregular look at the various MVNOs (virtual networks) here in the UK. You know what they say, you get nothing in this world for free. Well… perhaps from that nasty rash I had from that girl the once. Ooh.. But what about a free …

Big rise in customers taking SIM Only deals

Everything seems to cost a lot more than it used to and you’re working twice as hard for half the money. It’s rubbish. Phones are expensive, contracts are long and, if you’re on “certain” networks, the price goes up half-way through. To put it bluntly, we’re all a …

MVNO Feature – Tesco Mobile

We’ve been looking at those “virtual network operators” lately and have already checked out Virgin Mobile and TalkTalk. Both of those networks were keen to get you on board if you were already using one of their other services (like TV or broadband) and, in the case of …

Times are hard, how do you buy your next smartphone?

Money. It’s increasingly hard to come by. The recent Budget yet again showed that the country is really stretched. But, in the middle of it all, we’re still finding ways of affording phones that cost around £500. It is, if we’re honest, a lot of cash. If you …

Tesco Commit to no mid-contract price rises

Tesco Mobile, the countries largest MVNO, have today committed to no mid-contract price rises. In what they are calling the “Tesco Mobile Tariff Promise” Tesco say that they will not raise its customers core tariff prices mid contract and also state that they are the first operator in …
