    Doesn't look to bad but it annoys me how most tariffs are aimed at texting more than you talk, in this case limit texts and give me more minutes.

    Looks like I am staying on my O2 sim only £10 job for now.

    I currently pay O2 £10 a month for 100mins and unlimited texts, so this is a good deal!

    Just noticed I can't actually sign up to my O2 £10 deal anymore, I get 200 minutes and 100 texts, much better.

    I don't think my tariff is available anymore on 02 either. I currently pay £10 for 150 mins and 300 texts. Looking at my account online today I don't use anywhere near my allowance so this Tesco deal seems perfect for me.

    Thanks for the heads up Guy!

    This deal has been on website over a week.

    Shelly if you dont want your number anymore fancy transferring the account to me ? I have unlimted texts and 100 mins for £15, I use 120 mins average and 20 texts and 20p per mms (included in 300 @ 4 for 1 ) and my bills are always double as a minimum :(
    If I helped or saved you money - Thank me
    If I helped you spend some money - spank me
    If I done both - :lipsrseal me:eek:
    :D
    ;)

    Fair Use Policy 500MB & 3000 mins in the T&C.


    Best go giffgaff.com for unlimited everything for £35 - NO current FUP, giffgaff is a 100% o2 direct subsiduary company - just like o2 who own 50% of tescomobile.

    Interesting thing is Tesco use UMA instore through Cable & Wireless whom have a wholesale agreement with Orange for "converged" communications, one would think its cheaper to get thier telco partner o2 to install UMA at o2's servers !

    Who runs these companies any how, I wouldnt let them arrange me a party in a brewery....(maybe a Jim Beam distillery :) - then again maybe NOT!)
