    I may stand corrected here, but I thought Tesco Mobile rents its line from O2.

    Indeed Tesco do run on O2's backbone, sounds like a sweet deal. Dont forget to port your number. O2's retention dept may well try to match.

    May be worth mentioning - the tesco deal is superb, but if internet is important you may want to consider the giff gaff tarrif. They offer for

    I used to be with Tesco and there coverage was superb, much better than 3 that I am with now. Great call center service. Great packages. I used to have

    Only thing I didn't like about Tesco sims is they fill your phone full of crap, and when you delete it and reboot it all comes back.

    Not to sure I like the idea of this !
    I presume it's something on the sim that can't be removed :(

    It fills your phone with links to all sorts of tesco wap sites, sim contacts for tesco products, it took up about 20 slots of tesco stuff in the contacts.

    Service was fine but I really hated all that stuff in my phone, just didn't feel like my phone when every second contact was something to do with tescos.

    This was on a samsung tocco lite which I got for someone, I don't know how it would work on a desire as it didn't actually work when I put it in mine.

    No i'm not. In fact, I haven't even joined them yet. But i'm currently on o2 pay go and am getting pretty annoyed with their measly 500mb tarrifs and crap value.

    I know my stuff because i've done a lot of research into the deals around. I'm likely to switch in the upcoming weeks when I can get round to it.

    And so, honestly I don't know about the company with regards to "how good they are", but from what I've heard, coverage is excellent as with any o2 sim, and prices and cheap. Fine, it may lack the same support or shops etc, but for me those are irrelevant. I'm interested in signal and cost - and frankly they are unmatched for those.

    The tesco deal does not have a FUP of 500mb, its a hard cap. Meaning you will get charged

    Albert_htc and Mr hachi,

    Put all you contacts in the phone memory and select your default contacts as phone. This will exclude all the inbuilt tesco numbers in SIM contacts.
