TalkTalk Mobile is an MVNO that uses Vodafone network and offer contract mobiles, monthly rolling plans and SIM-only deals. The MVNO has recently started to “double its data” offer(s) if you order online. As an example, if you take the HTC One in silver, which you can get for free at just £25 per month on a 2 year contract. This is for the “Small” bundle which includes 200MB data, 250 texts and 100 minutes.
Customers can also increase this up to £30 for the “Medium” bundle and get 550 minutes talk-time (usually 300), 3000 text messages and 1GB of data (usually 500MB). The “Large” bundle costs £40 per month and provides customers with 1250 minutes (usually 1000), 3000 texts and a healthy 4GB of data (usually 2GB).
All plans include some “Built in savings” which include the usual free text alerts, free voicemail and free calls to their help centre, but it also includeds unlimited family calls too. TalkTalk have added a 400 minutes allowance so that you can call other TalkTalk mobiles.
A brand-new HTC One with no up-front cost for just £25 per month? That’s rather good, and getting 1GB of data on the £30 plan is very decent too. Well. there’s a slight catch to all this. In order to get these offers you’ll need to be a TalkTalk customer, so you’ll need to have phone or broadband with them.
Talk Talk’s SIM only deals include a monthly rolling contract or a 12-month contract.
The “double data” deal is available, but if you don’t need data you can have a monthly £5 deal which gives you 75 minutes talk-time and 150 texts.
For £10 per month customers will receive 1GB of data (normally 500MB), 300 minutes talk-time and 3000 texts.
The “Large” plan (which is £17.50 per month) gives you 1000 minutes, 3000 texts and 4GB data, which is normally 2GB. Again, there’s “Unlimited Family Calls” too.
A SIM only 12 month contract comes with 300 minutes talk-time, 3000 texts and 1GB of data for £7.50 per month on the “Medium” plan and 1000 minutes, 3000 texts and 4GB data for £15 per month, so you’re saving yourself £2.50 per month on the “Medium” and “Large” SIM only plans if you sign-up for a 12 month plan rather than a monthly one. The “Small” plan isn’t available on a 12 month contract.
According to their own FAQ section it seems that iPhones aren’t supported on SIM only plans.
BlackBerry handsets are sold and Blackberry users can add BB services with the Blackberry Boost add on. Those “included Family Calls” are basically others with TalkTalk mobile packages linked to your main TalkTalk landline.
If you’re a TalkTalk customer with a phone at home, broadband and TV, this is pretty much a no-brainer. There’s a healthy data allowance, good packages and a pretty decent selection of handsets, although don’t expect the Apple iPhone to be one of them. There’s TalkTalk Phone and Broadband voucher codes to add to the discount pot too.
Originally, Talk Mobile was Mobile World, which was launched in April 2005, and rebranded in 2008. Talk Mobile is a part of the Carphone Warehouse Group.
