    They aren't unlimited when it comes to tethering.

    i think it is related to plans. From my understanding ultimate plans are fussy about tethering where The One plan (I think they call it) isn't

    In regards to tethering where plans don't allow it, can they actually tell if you are tethering or not?

    I'll shortly be in a similar position and was thinking about GiffGaff but they get some terrible reviews on Trustpilot.

    I was also looking at Tesco Mobile. Anyone here got any experience of them?

    Even at £12 a month, it will still save me £25 every month
    Don't 02 do a sim plan or am I thinking of the Pay as you go where they keep doubling what you get ( seen the advert on telly )

    The costs of O2's simplicity sims don't even come close to what gift gaff charge. Even when I canceled with O2 and said I found a sim only deal, the operator said "I bet it's with GiffGaff" and immediately offered me a PAC code. They just can't compete in the sim only world.

    I was going to move to GiffGaff but when I asked for a PAC code Vodafone matched GiffGaff - the £10 a month deal. I think I get something like 600 minutes 500mb data and unlimited texts.

    Giffgaff's ok but their reliability isn't up to the same levels at the other operators. Twice in the last couple of years they've had days of no calls for anybody. Once was when their basement room that contained the billing system flooded; can't remember what the other time was. If you can live with that, they're fine.

    I consider people not being able to phone me on my mobile a bonus.
