    Not sure if there is a fair use policy hidden in there somewhere for Giffgaff and Three but more than likely will be so I would check that first.

    Think I saw someone say 1Gb per day cap? Doubt I'll come close to that.

    I always thought Three had terrible coverage but it's great for her at home and at the school she goes to.

    Can't see anything obvious (plus the site's being updated and half the links don't work at the moment!), but am I right in thinking GiffGaff is effectively a PAYG network? IE, there is no minimum 'contract' as such?

    Yep, you can cancel any time you like if you aren't happy with the service.

    This network sounds too good to be true!

    Virgin Mobile do the same price plan for 17/Month with Unlimited Data. However, they have recently changed their policy so that if you do go over the limit, you will be charged 1 per day for unlimited data. So, unless you go through 1Gb at the very start of the month, I think that's a decent enough offer. See virginmedia.com/datach for more details.

    Having said that though, I don't think any Unlimited Tarriff will be sufficient for constant listening to Google Music as you'll very quickly hit the fair usage policy limit.

    Three make a big thing of being unlimited with no restrictions.

    Does GiffGaff have any specific restrictions outside the UK my Y10 daughter is soon to go on an exchange to Spain and is currently using a very old mobile on PAYG and currently rarely needs a top up of more than a tenner every 6 months but she is keen to buy herself a Nokia 620 and use that as her PAYG.

I've never bought non-booster credit though as I don't send MMS (why would you when all phones capable of receiving picture messaging can also receive emails now?). You can set up the 12 a month to renew automatically through the website so it's pretty much the same as a pay monthly phone.

    I switched to GiffGaff for the 12/month deal and I couldn't be happier. I get to use Google Music all I want (I have over 19,000 songs in my collection so google music is the only practical way of accessing all of them on the move) and I don't have to worry about getting shafted with data charges. They also say they don't allow tethering (like all networks) but I've not had any trouble tethering my Nexus 7 via bluetooth when out and about, which is also a bonus. It piggybacks off the O2 network (in fact, my phone says O2 on the screen instead of GiffGaff), so if you get good O2 signal where you are GiffGaff is probably your best choice for sim-only network.
