Super

good tariffs, good choice of phones

sometimes expensive to call out of the country

I started using tesco mobile around one and a half years ago, and am now on my second phone with them. It is fair to say that tesco mobile is the best network I have ever used in most respects, well, actually I have only ever used two because most other networks appear awful. I used vodafone for...

Some underlying network problems

Want to buy your mobile while picking up your beans? Why not go one better and have the supermarket BE the mobile network with Tesco Mobile (well almost… see below!). When did Tesco build a mobile network? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The answer, of course, is that they didn't. The Tesco...

Cheap and Quality

None

Whilst in Tesco a few months ago with my wife she decided that she wanted to get a new mobile phone and seeing Tesco's deals on mobiles we chose there to buy it. The phone she liked was the Samsung D500 so she picked it up and took it to the desk. Upon paying £120 for the phone she also received...

None so far

So here we go again another review brought about by the fact I had to move to keep my job (long story and will be covered when I write the review of my employers when and if Ciao list them). Sadly for Orange their network doesn't cover Lydd camp - just the area outside it but no signal penerates...

“Tesco Mobile a good Tariff”

No features like "stop the clock"

I had an old mobile and was looking for a pay as you go mobile with cheap calls specifically to my wife and for the kids to use when they are out. Tesco have a choice of three tariffs which are as follows Value which is simply a phone and texting service and all calls are 15p per minute and texts...

high call charges (expected with PAYG phone)

Here I would like to talk about the Tesco mobile service rather the phone. For the phone Sony Ericsson T303 please read my other review posted yesterday. First of all, I got the phone and Tesco (always) has an offer of buying a new PAYG phone and credit you £10! This is not a free credit which...

“Value Prices, Extra Service”

published 14/04/2007

Cheap, Reliable, Convenient to top up

None as of yet

Introduction Whilst in Tesco a couple of months ago I saw that Tesco had a decent offer on with their phones, and seeing as I had been having nothing but difficulty with my previous one I decided it was time for a change. I picked up a Motorola MotoRazr V3 for £45, (£25 off when bought with £25...

Their site isn't very good- no login just a PIN

Following the many adverts Tesco Mobile have around about how good their network is, I researched it a bit and decided to change networks. What I love about Tesco Mobile is that you get rewarded for topping up. I top up £15, and get £30 back in free, bonus credit. This expires after a month, but...

“Tesco, Every Little Helps!”

published 17/08/2006

Cheap, Reliable

High GPRS Price

Tesco Mobile was Tesco's first venture into the realms of mobile tarrifs. And I must say, it was a very eventfull one. Tesco Mobile is based on O2's satalites, meaning you get a good coverage in the UK and throughout Europe too. This also means you get all the standard services, such as 3G, GPRS...

Good service and good coverage

Is twenty p a minute on pay as you go too much?

I am a heavy user of my pay as you go mobile and for some time I have used the tesco mobile service. Originally, I chose this service because it offered a range of good deals and also the bonus added benefits of club card points every time you topped up. I liked that I could log on online to top...

Not accepted at some top up points

Before going on a whole host of other networks I decided to try one a bit different. I was previously on Orange but poor signal meant that I wanted to change. That's when Tesco mobile caught my eye. "5p text, 10p calls" the leaflet said. This would be a great bargain, however as I read on I...

A few months ago I decided a contract phone was just draining my pay packet so went for a pay as you go card and just keep my phone. I decided to go with Tesco because the sim card I got would double my to up, Up to £30. I origionally though this would be an introductory thing but later found out...
