Well, the way I see it it's just a trick. Sure, you get the 300 minutes but how many people actually use it? An operator could say unlimited minutes and that would be the ultimate deal.

Although, maybe I'm underestimating how much some people use their phones. Personally I spend about 3 pounds a month Smiley Tongue

Tescos have permanently reduced the 1 month SIM only tariff:

£10 - 500 mins / Unlimited (3000) Texts / Unlimited Data (500mb)
£15 - 750 mins / Unlimited (3000) Texts / Unlimited Data (500mb)

This is a brilliant offer. Giffgaff need to look at this and maybe think about upping the minutes to:
300 on £10 Goodybag,
600 500 on £15,
900 750 on £20 Goodybag.


EDIT: Crossed out values as minutes might be too high for it to be sustainable.

You also need to remember that GG offers free calls/text to other GG users, which Tesco Mobile doesn't offer to other Tesco Mobile users.

I know alot depends on how you use your mobile. The networks are certainly hotting up with the sim only deals at the minute.

Yeah I think it will be a contract but to be honest I much prefer the giffgaff idea as I'm sure many others do and the community and the whole idea of payback, you know! Smiley Happy

I'm pretty sure I read 1GB of data which makes it better than most networks' deals.

500 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB data for £10 a month is a real cracker.

If payback wasn't so fantastic, that deal would be a serious rival to GG.
