Wait a minute. Unlimited data? £20 per month?!

Until about 10 minutes ago, if you wanted unlimited data on a SIM only plan I would’ve pointed you to this Three UK deal which delivers unlimited data with 200 minutes of chatter and unlimited texts. However, Virgin Mobile have just added another Black Friday deal. I really …

OK, we’ve got a better one. 6GB per month for a tenner

Just last week we found a SIM-only deal on Plusnet which gives 5GB of data for £10 per month. Now though, Virgin Mobile have gone one better with 6GB of data for £10 per month on a SIM only deal. This one runs until December 20th and Virgin …

Plusnet Mobile SIM Only deals.. GO!

There really shouldn’t be much of a reason NOT to go with a “virtual” operator nowadays. Take Plusnet as an example. They use the EE masts so the signal is going to be flippin’ good. Right now they’ve got some deals which, if you’re quick and you want …

A fifth of UK drivers admit to using their mobiles behind the wheel

Every now and then we get an email from a company which includes research relating to mobile phones. The company involved will want to get their name mentioned (in this case it’s Protect Your Bubble) so that they can have some free advertising. This is another one of …

Easy Logger – A hidden mobile tracking app

There’s plenty of monitoring apps out there but, if you want to pay absolutely nothing, the new Easy Logger app might be of interest. It’s for Android and you will need to side-load an APK, but for precisely nothing per month you’ll get full logging of all phone …

Got a fiver? Grab a SIM-only 1GB plan here.

OK, I’ve got to be quick with this one as iD Mobile have, after pushing out lots of bonkers adverts, gone a bit nuts with this one particular deal and I’m going to make the most of it. If you’re looking for a low-cost SIM-only plan for a …

Windows 10 Mobile – It’s definitely dead now.

Some 18 months ago, I wrote about the death of Windows on a phone. I’d been there. I saw how Microsoft chief executive, Steve Ballmer, laughed off the iPhone. I saw how many loyal fans were kicked away by Microsoft as continual reboots of the platform killed upgrade …

Some of my favourite iOS and Android games

Some of my favourite iOS and Android games I tend to see the same games being played on the bus to college in the morning, but I’m a little different. My choice of apps, and the games I have installed, isn’t always mainstream, but I enjoy them all …

Quick Friday offer for SIM only data junkies

I’ll keep this brief, because I’m hopefully talking to those who want a massive slice of data on a network with great coverage. This one is with Virgin Mobile, who use EE. Their SIM-only offer will give you a massive 20GB of data plus 5000 minutes and unlimited …

Want a new iPhone, but don’t want to pay a crazy price?

OK yes. The iPhone 8 is a great phone. The iPhone X is an even better phone. But if your son, daughter or significant other wants one of these, it’s a LOT of money to be spending. Take, as an example, the iPhone X pricing we covered recently. …

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pricing announced by Sky Mobile

As we mentioned in our earlier piece, we expected Sky Mobile to be one of the virtual networks offering the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. However, what we didn’t quite expect was for them to be the first people to release contract pricing. Sky Mobile has confirmed to …

Sky Mobile adds more data and a new 10GB plan

Sitting on top of the O2 network, Sky are pushing hard with their mobile deals. If you’re a TV customer then you do get a slightly better deal, but just now they’ve announced that new and existing customer will get new plans to choose from. Available from Friday, …

Top five ways to store money on your phone

I drive my wife crazy on a weekly basis it seems. It tends to happen when she asks if I’ve got any loose change. I don’t. I very rarely do. At work, the vending machines and the staff restaurant – they’re all “tap to pay”. When I go …

Sky Mobile – New £35 deal for bundled Sky TV and a mobile

Sky are pushing hard into the mobile arena, but they’ve now announced a better deal if you want some Sky TV action too. Their newly-announced £35 per-month deal delivers an iPhone SE on a “Swap24” plan. This, along with their appropriately-named “Swap12” offering, lets you upgrade to the …

Exploring the evolution of mobile phones

It’s fair to say that I’m now of a “certain age” and I can quite easily amaze people by detailing a long-forgotten time “before mobile phones”. At school in the 80’s and 90’s, you simply wouldn’t see a phone, and it was only at college that clever new …

What can we expect from mobile gaming from 2017 and beyond?

I’m a big mobile gamer. Yes, I’ve got a PlayStation at home but, when I’m on the bus, I’m also playing games on my Galaxy S8 too. It’s predicted that the global games business will grow to some $108.9billion this year, with mobile devices helping to generate a …
