DisadvantagesNOT FREE

"BTs internet based sister company Genie are running what would appear to be a fantastic promotion at the moment. A free sim card with unlimited free WAP calls and unlimited SMS messages on their pay-as-you-go tariff. Sounds too good to be true! Well, it is! I received an email telling me about this offer and thought "what an amazing idea!" and so promptly applied. The application process on the web site (www.genie.co.uk) was simple and quick and ..."

Cheap at what price...Don't get screwed - UPDATED

Advantagescan be cheap if you only use your inclusive minutes

Disadvantagescan end up being tied into a situation and you can fall foul of BTs policy of overpricing

"The tao of Claire must be "if you find something you want you can always get it cheaper!" and so began my quest for a mobile phone. In a very "anorak-ish" kind of way my boyfriend (now my husband) and I spent a very long and boring Saturday constructing an Excel spreadsheet into which we plugged a plethora of information regarding mobile phone tariffs in a vain attempt to establish which mobile phone tariff would be best for us at the time.

Don't Give Up That Contract

AdvantagesGood coverage, pay upfront is good value, network is keen to retain existing customers

DisadvantagesInept customer service, exorbitant charges for calls to other mobile networks

"If you are thinking of changing your mobile, perhaps even changing your network, don't just cancel your old contract and go for whatever appeals in your local phone shop. You could be throwing your money away... By all means do your research and find out which handset you want next. Feel free to have an in-store prod & poke, ask your mates, check out the opinions on Ciao. But if you've had a pay-monthly contract with Cellnet for more than a year, ..." Read review

The Power of the Written Word

AdvantagesGood deals are available, if you persevere.

DisadvantagesDon't even BOTHER phoning the helpline

"I feel as though I’ve been with BT Cellnet since our good Scottish friend, Sandy Graham Bell, cranked his handle, spoke to his mother in the next room , and said “Fit like, Ma? Can ye hear me? I’ve invented a telly-phone!” Old Ma Bell didn’t actually answer, because she was deaf as a post. And BT Cellnet have valiantly kept up this tradition – of being deaf as a post. I don’t do basic facts, as ..." Read review
