I've always had my mobile phones on contract. I have been with Vodafone since the day dot - basically for as long as I had mobiles. Vodafone and I were best friends, we still are. But this is not part of the discussion here. My latest mobile handset is not locked to any particular network and I...

Cheap and easy to use

Limited service, no MMS or GPRS

I used to be on O2 and buy bolt-ons so I could send hundreds of texts each month for a very low cost. However when I needed to phone anyone it was very expensive on O2 and so I decided to change to Tesco, which offered cheap calls and cheap texts. After a while Tesco expanded their range of...

“Tesco Value Sim”

published 07/11/2005

Really cheap

can only top up via tesco

Tesco Value Mobile Tesco value Mobile is the cheapest network that I have come across, it is ridiculously cheaper than the other networks and even cheaper than the normal "Tesco sim". With Tesco value Mobile you just get the basics calling and texting (but only in the UK). The Tesco network runs...

“Tesco Value...mobile”

Cheap, Clubcard Points

None

Browsing around tesco I had a look at the pretty DVD case that said "SIM Pack" at about £3.97 I realised it was a good price. Upon looking at the back of the case I was a bit confused as to why there was 3 tariffs, the Tesco Value tariff is the best value for those who dont use their phone that...

The reviews here are all very detailed and tell you just about everything you need to make a decision as to whether this is the right choice for you. I bought it as I was attracted to the low cost of texts which I use extensively. The one drawback that continues to infuriate me is that the Nokia phone that is supplied by Tesco does not have a predictive text function so you have to tap out each letter when texting. Seems a small annoyance but if you're a heavy user of text services and are used to predictive texting it will drive you slowly insane!

“Value sim card”

published 21/11/2005

very cheap tariff

very basic services

How do you decide on what network you go on? It all depends on what you are going to use your mobile phone for. If you only use your phone for calls and text messages then i would recomend this to anybody. The value sim card is just that you dont get anything fancy just your basic mobile phone...

Just to correct a previous posting. YES, you can ring anywhere outside the UK, from the UK. Calls to the most popular 50 countries are only 20p per minute,both to landline and mobiles. This is a good tariff by any standards. They call this Zone 1. Calls to more obscure countries can be 40p or 149 p per minute, but it would be rare to call these places.

if its a tesco sim it wont work on an orange network but if you go into the orange shop where you got the phone they can transfer the number over to there sim so you will have to change networks but you keep the number normally they do this free of charge when you buy the phone
