Mobile networks

Thanks, I’m such a :nerd_face: on this stuff :sweat_smile: tried but ordering a Now Mobile SIM as they’re half price just to check it all out but seems an error on the form every time I enter phone number


Now/RWG vs regular contract EE

Obviously Your mileage will vary

Could also be two different handsets with different capabilities, but thanks! Wish these subnetworks would get their esim sorted, would make my life much easier :sweat_smile:

Agreed, Google pixel 4a 5G is a bit older than my iPhone, 13 promax :rofl: however, you’re very welcome for the results

I’m with Giffgaff currently, it’s incredibly antiquated with no VoLTE, WiFi calling, eSIM or anything else, the management won’t say when it’ll be released, not even a timeframe.

Traditionally they’ve been slow on everything, nano SIMs for example were incredibly late to be introduced.

I stay only as helping out on the forum they pay my bill; otherwise they’re expensive for the amount of data provided. Sadly Giffgaff has really fallen behind.

RWG honestly doesn’t seem THAT bad, I know I had a hick up getting it going, but it only took 1 2 minute phone call and it was working, their rates seem good too - as long as you don’t look at the app, as it’s truly awful - they seem to use Flash Messages for checking balance too, which is a bit quirky

Unfortunately GiffGaff is now the poor relation to other Telefonica and VMo2 sub brands and JV’s

I think GiffGaff has run its course as it was originally an experiment in self care MVNO, and then it got a following and Telefonica have kept it going…

Its a shame as when it first launched it was quite innovative…

If you want an esim and pay less than GiffGaff look at https://esim.net they do o2 esims and they have an offer on at the moment £20 unlimited data, texts and calls and wifi calling / VoLTE but only EU roaming and no premium calls or texts…

I’ve earned quite a bit of money through the forums in the past :sweat_smile:

But yeah, such a shame their offering is poor in terms of tech. O2 needs to sort it out, though to be fair, I wonder if it’ll be here in the next few years following VM venture.

£240 for unlimited EE data only until June 2024.

Convert to esim for £12.50.

1p per month for 6 months, Lebara (Vodafone) 12gb.

I received my EE unlimited £10+VAT SIM today from scancom. Whilst it was a chore to set up through my own stupidity, scancoms customer service was amazing. Within an hour I was back up and running via esim, full signal, typical EE speeds (good), and no restrictions.

For a data only SIM, it’s perfect for me. Most likely going to find somewhere super cheap for my main contact number to go to, possibly drop from Three to Lebara for 6 months at 1p, 12gb data as above.

£12.01 a month for unlimited calls, SMS, and data + 12gb data if EE signal is pants, and vodafone runs on a different network sharing agreement.

Both Sims also 12/15gb roaming data, which is pretty good for the price.

Just for you @Carlo1460. I now have my second sim on NOW mobile (RWG) in my iPhone 13 Pro Max

Main sim

Now (RWG)

RWG limits the speed to 40mb, which is enough honestly

Thanks, I’d have assumed it was capped anyway, still, for what it’s needed for it’s not a bad deal at all :grin:
