Get yourself £20 off your shopping if you’re on Tesco Mobile

If you are a current or prospective customer of Tesco Mobile, listen up. They seem to be pushing hard (and, by that, I mean that they’re emailing me a lot) to promote their network and are now dishing up extra Clubcard points on selected mobile phones. If you …

Get the LG G6 with giffgaff a week before release

Look at me. I’ve got me an LG G6. Aren’t I all big and clever? I get phones first. I’m so amazing. Wait though… it’s not like that at all. In fact, I get phones on loan for a few days or a couple of weeks, then I …

Tesco Mobile to deliver money-saving perks to families

A refreshed Family Perks scheme has been launched on Tesco Mobile here in the UK today. It means that, if you get your family together on one bill, you can choose perks for each member. Those perks include free minutes, data or Tesco Clubcard points. Using the O2 …

LIFE Mobile merges into Plusnet Mobile

I’m sure you’ve all heard about Plusnet. They’re a “no nonsense” UK internet provider based in Sheffield. They do broadband, landlines and calls… oh, and they’re owned by BT after an acquisition in 2007. Who else is owned by BT? Well, EE of course. EE in turn own …

Head over to the Apple website and a 64GB iPhone 6s will set you back £619. The 128GB one will cost you £699. However, right now giffgaff have dropped the price of this and lots of other handsets. So, head over to their site and you can get …

Tesco puts a Rocket in your pocket

Want 4G data on Pay As You Go? Tesco Mobile is going to deliver with their new “Rocket Packs”. They’ve been announced just weeks after the virtual mobile network announced a money-saving scheme which reduces mobile bills if you watch some ads. Now they’re offering 4G data on …

Tesco launch Mobile Xtras

Well, this is awkward. We’ve been given some information about a new offering from Tesco Mobile but their PR team aren’t getting in touch. We’re not totally sure if we’re breaking an embargo or what-not, but here goes anyway. So, word on the street is that Tesco Mobile …

Tesco Mobile offering free roaming in lots of European countries

If you’re planning to use your mobile phone across Europe then, until now, Three has been your best bet. Their “Feel At Home” offering let’s you use your phone as you would in the UK, but across European destinations such as France, the Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Spain, …

giffgaff flies high with new ad campaign

Back in the late 90’s I was using a clunky big Nokia phone and colour screens were just a pipe dream. There was a TV show on back then called “TFI Friday”, hosted by Chris Evans. He bought and sold a radio station, became a multi-millionaire, shacked up …

Goodbye Sainsbury’s Mobile

Have you got a mobile running on the Sainsbury’s Mobile network? Well, sadly it won’t be working much longer. The supermarket has given a 90-day notice that all services will be discontinued and you’ll see the network completely snuffed out on January 15th. The reasons, it seems, revolve …

FreedomPop UK – An overview. £0 per month is back again.

Over the years we’ve seen a number of MVNO’s here in the UK attempting to give you something for nothing but, each and every time, they’ve failed. First we tried Ovivo, then we tried Samba Mobile but both went pop fairly quickly and customers were left without service. …

Pricing for the Galaxy S6 edge + on giffgaff announced

Fancy the new super-sized Samsung Galaxy S6 edge + on giffgaff? They’ll be selling it from September 4th contract free and completely unlocked. You can then stick one of the giffgaff monthly SIM cards in, and there’s a range of plans to choose from with 3G and 4G ‘goodybags’. …

Free SIM from The Peoples Operator, plus £10.50 bonus credit

Bit of a UK only deal now. The Peoples Operator is an MVNO that we originally covered a while ago as part of our Charity Networks article. They have now launched a rather cool sounding promotion which is designed to get you using their network. It’s pretty hard …

Already SIM-only? Keep looking, you could get an even better deal

Let’s assume that there’s a healthy section of you on giffgaff. Let’s also assume that you might be going to an area where the signal perhaps isn’t so great. Perhaps you’ve looked at Three and thought that getting 1GB of data for £14 isn’t enough on a Pay …

Voda deny MVNO exit claim

Earlier today TalkTalk accused Vodafone of quitting all MVNO activity. In documents relating to the BT/EE merger, TalkTalk had info to suggest that Voda had served notice on Sainsburys and Carphone Warehouse following the discontinuation of service for TalkTalk. We now understand that Vodafone is in the process …

Tesco Mobile proper sticks the boot into Three

Yesterday we detailed the move by Three to tweak their terms and conditions and allow mid-contract price hikes. Now Tesco Mobile, an MVNO running on O2, have given us their take on all this. Other networks have “amended” their terms and conditions to allow increases in line with …

18 month SIM only deals now available on Tesco Mobile

SIM only deals, to me at least, usually mean one month rolling plans. However, if you want to lock yourself into a longer deal and possibly get even better value for money, you can go for a 12 month plan. Tesco Mobile has today become the UK’s first …
