PAYG Mobile Data

16 posts in this topic

Im thinking of switching from oranges Payg plan whoch is £3 per MB as its costing me welllll too much.

I mostly use my phone now for mobile web and email.

what's the best plan to go with .....

T-Mobiles web&walk @ £1 per day

or o2's new £7.50 per month bolt on for mobile data.

What do you think is the better deal o2's or t-mobiles packages.

Thanks

£1 per day deals are good if you won't use it every day, otherwise you end up with £30/month bills

With these you get effectively unlimited (they all have caps I think) data for the day, and only pay £1 per day. If you only use a tiny amount in a given day then you pay under £1. If you don't use it at all on a given day you pay nothing.

£7.50 deals (why have they all chosen that price?) generally offer fixed volumes, but you pay less if you use it every day than you would with a £1/day deal.

I've got Vodafone £7.50 for 120Mb, which is fine for my needs, and a fair amount IMO for the amount I use (30-80Mb/month)

Why are you leaving orange PAYG? It's as cheap as t-mob @ £1/day.

Text the word access to 247 for orange world access 1.

Do you have to txt this overtime then when you want the additional data?

So out of all 3 plans then which do you think is the best deal out there

Orange's with the above addition

T-mobile Payg £1 web and walk (not the sim only package)

Or o2's sim with the mobile data bolt on.

Id see i transfer about 1mb per day...with web/email/rss .etc

thanks

I cane about 100mb/day on orange ;-)

You need to txt orange 1 hr before you want access. Supposed to last until midnight that day but mine seems ok till about 7am before i need to sign up again.

From what I understand though, if you have existing pre-paid data, it uses that first though :-(

T's £1/day is better than O's because you doin't have to worry about it, if you use less than £1/day of data you just get charged for usage but it is capped at £1/day and you don't have tio send a text to rexuest it then wait an hour!

Both are fine for occasional use but if you are going to use it more than 7 days a month then O2's data add on sounds ideal for you.

Just one last thing ...so how does t-mobile £1 per day work.

is it you can browse and itll cost you a £1 provided you keep within there cap?...but if you sont use a £1's worth it wont actually cost a £1 ;)

Thanks

As I stated above, if you use less than £1 worth of data you just get charged for the data you use, but £1 is the max you will be charged - I don't think there is any limit on the amount of data you get for your pound.

I believe they are - and are very good value if you have coverage - just theire coverage is a lot worse than the others, if you can getit then worth looking at.

the best deal at the moment is with 3, on their payg service you can buy a 30day internet pass for £5, this gives you a fair use of upto 1gig of data for the 30day period. I bought a 3skypephone on thursday night, bought a £10 topup and got my free skype and skype texts for the next 30 days and I bought the £5 add-on. Have been using the phone as a usb modem for the laptop and it works well. I just hope people don't abuse the offer and 3 withdraw it.

Good spot. Do 3 still charge for emails on top of this? That's what their website seems to indicate..................................

I checked on the My3 feature on a 3skypephone and it states that you require an Internet Add-On for your emails, so I took the £5 jobby for 30 days.

To me these 3skypephones @ £50 are the perfect xmas present for youngsters as long as they can afford the minimum £10 per month top-up to take advantage of the Skype facility.
