I have a similar deal with Tesco, I think it is around £12 per month for 2 years then the phone is mine. I don’t make excessive calls or texts so I have never had to pay any extra and I use my own wifi at home. That’s on the Samsung A10 which is fine except the camera is not the best quality.
Would the camera quality bother you, probably something to check on the Galaxy A12.
One thing I can say is that I have never had any connection problems with Tesco so far.
I recently bought a Samsung A12 on Amazon, then took out a month on month contract with Speedy who use the 3 network. Unlimited calls and texts, 1gb data (I rarely use the phone for internet) all for £6 month, cancel anytime. I couldn’t find a better deal anywhere close… Oh, and the camera’s not bad either, even got a macro lens…
No I’m not concerned about the camera, just might be fun to see what it can do. I’m secretly hoping it’s crap.
I’ve been offered unlimited minutes (calls?) and texts. Pretty extreme for someone that doesn’t do that.
I’m just thinking … we are moving home shortly (hopefully), will be using the car more (satnav might come in handy), there are all these apps required nowadays: from booking a GP to paying for parking …
When you say you use your own wifi at home, do you have to remember to connect? And how much is 1GB? And can I sign up to 1GB, find it’s not sufficient and change to (next level) 4GB?
Hmmm … need to think about this … payg but for a fixed package? It seems all packages include unlimited UK calls and texts so I should think about getting loads of data to browse OFF while waiting for a bus.
BT has announced that it’s going ahead with plans that would see its existing public switched telephone network (PSTN) shut down in favour of having all phone calls be made using VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)
What mobile to get for just using as a phone and text?
Not sure this is a good idea, getting a signal on mobile at home is not reliable.
That restriction is changing in December 2021. Mobile phone companies will not be allowed to sell mobiles locked to their service. I feel they are now doing something else which is to put all SIM only deals on a contract, that’s what’s happened to me with EE. I had a SIM only deal of free calls and unlimited texts with a small amount of data as I don’t use that anyway. That cost £12 a month with no contract but then that changed and there were no SIM deals without at least a 12-month contract. I had the ‘choice’ of either taking that contract or leaving! I am just waiting for the time when we can legally get them to sign a contract, in the way we have to with them, that would be interesting!
I do skype from home computer to friends and family, I see more & more people out on the street talking into their phones, the way to go. So what’s required is “data”. Plus, boy in EE shop said I could use 1GB in a few minutes when on YouTube. How can I get loads of data cheap? Unlimited calls & text sounds good but who really needs it?
