£5 for 1GB of data – SIM-only deal of the day

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Mediatek) – Review

Last year I reviewed the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, a great value device with excellent specs. Just over three months after the launch of the Redmi Note 2 Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 3. I spent some pocket money recently and purchased one to see if it

Deal – EE SIM-only offer you just HAVE to purchase!

Some time ago I took out a 12 month EE SIM-only plan. It was a pretty good deal I thought, and delivered 4GB of data every month for £19.99. Not bad, but it was made even better thanks to a cashback offer I’d grabbed. It brought the

Vodafone SIMs become flexible

Vodafone SIM only deals are becoming more flexible. I don’t mean the SIM card will bend more (please don’t try that at home), rather Vodafone are relaxing the upgrade rules. Previously if you were on a 12 month SIM only plan then you could only upgrade to

Wait a minute. Someone just said “unlimited data”. Hello TalkTalk.

It’s always a dangerous phrase. Say “unlimited data” to potential customers and, love it or hate it, a number of them will really push that to the limit. That’s what MVNO TalkTalk are doing, in a giffgaff-esque 30-day SIM offering which offers unlimited everything for £12 per

Swapping your phone? Got a SIM problem? Get an adaptor

Some clever sausage somewhere decided at some point that the standard SIM cards were just too big.

However, there’s still

New hassle-free data SIM providers rock up

Data. You want it. You want it right now. You want big, fat, sweaty piles of data and as quick as possible. You filthy, filthy monkey. You disgust me. How’s 99p per GB sound? That sound good? Huh? Got yourself a cheap enough deal there? How about
