It would be nice if there were a £5 GB that included minutes, texts and data, like the £10 one.

I imagine this has been discussed in the past, but a quick search came up trumps.

 

For my use, it would be ideal if there were a goodybag that, like the £10 and onwards, offered a combination of calling minutes, texts and DATA.

 

Would  a £5 that supplied 125 minutes, 250 texts and 250 megs of data be a possibility?

 

I ask only because I see that the £5 offerings have recently been expanded

 

Thanks

Sorry, shahin, though this was ideas, will have to look further. Have to say that this forum is still very confusing to me.

Added my two bits in what I think might be the thread you are all referring to.

Please do look at the GB listing. There used to be the £5 HC but now that is gone and they have these two options, instead:

 

  • For £5 a month get:

    • 60 UK minutes
    • 300 UK texts
    • Free extra minutes
    • Free to giffgaff

     

  • For £5 a month get:

    • Unlimited UK texts
    • Free to giffgaff

    Comparing them to the £10 option, they are both disappointing, the former would, in fact, be palatable, if it also included some Data.

     

    Here are the £10 numbers:

     

    • 250 UK minutes
    • Unlimited UK texts
    • 1GB internet
    • Free to giffgaff

    The former £5 option includes, proportionally, a lower number of minutes, what seems to be an extravagant number of texts and no data.

C'mon man, why do the other £5 options make sense, and not one that also offers some Data.
How does a £5 unlimited texts option make sene. Wouldn't that kind of user be the type to also do a lot off twitter and FB, thus require Data, as well ??
Someone, in this or the other thread said GG needs to keep the offerings simple. The only fracture occurs at £5, from £10 onwards you simply get bigger bundles.
So, yes, if there were a £5 ( or a £7.50 one) bundle they would make less money from me and some others but they would be fair to the whole user base. Right now, as mentioned, I am having to pay for much more of a bundle than I need.

Too bad. Next month I will see if I can come in under £10 with a £5 minutes/texts GB and Data from credit.
Just annoying to have the uncertainty...
