    Just came across this on the BIRD forum..

    http://ovivomobile.com/

    Basically you pay £15.00 for the sim and that gives you 150 mins, 250 texts, 500MB data per month..
    For ever
    With nothing more to pay..
    A couple of the guys use it and yep, def nowt more to pay if you do not exceed the above

    they do other packages if your a big(ger) user and even those are good value.

    For someone who just wants emails and the occasional google and perhaps a daily visit on here, it is absolutely perfect !

    look at the FREEDOM plan.

    £15 initial payment then free if you stay in the plans limits.

    Basically a £15 deposit then anything over the plan limit is deducted from the £15
    Once the £15 is gone you will be billed for extra calls and data.

    the data only SIM at 750mb would be perfect for a mifi unit then other devices can be used simultaneously.

    No idea what you would get for 750mb though...suggestions/advice ?

    I've gone for one too. Ideal for my Galaxy which only makes rare use of the SIM. Sent for one for Jean too for her Ipad :thumb:

    Yes, it is Vodafone..
    I have now been using my one for a week.. At the weekend, whilst at Wereham in the wilds of Norfolk, the speed was actually faster than I get here at home ( which was at the same time great and disappointing as it showed how awful my speed is whilst at home ! )

    Vodafone...not for me then.

    i already have a none expiring voda data only sim.

    at home i get 3G.......in town (Scarborough) i get no signal in many places indoors and 2G outdoors.....on Whitby's west cliff i got 2G.

    looking at Vodafones coverage map, Scarborough is in a black hole. :Sad:

    I have seen this before. It seems once you pay your £15 you pay nothing more for the Freedom cheapest deal, unless you exceed your limits. Its revenue stream comes I am told from the pop up ads that appear every time you go on the web. That was what put me off.

    I think I will be moving over to Giff gaff next week when my O2 contract finishes. A £10 goodbag gets you 500 minutes, endless texts and 1Gb of data. It also lets you tether your PC or tablet.

    agreed John, that was the primary reason......but voda coverage is crap no matter where you are, and most campsites are out in the sticks.
