    Depending on how much data you use there are two good deals on O2 simplicity. £10.50 mth gets you 300 any network mins and 500 bonus O2 to O2 mins and 100mb. I went with the £15.50 and get 600 any network mins, 300 O2 mins and 500mb. Both are 12 month contract.

    If you ordered unlocked then I would suggest jumping on the 3 bandwagon, as well as every savvy consumer out there is doing (including me), simply because they offer nano-sims right now with a very good 30-day rolling contract price.

    For 12.90 you can have something like 300 mins, 5000 texts and all you can eat data.

    It also allows you to quite easily switch to EE if you want to for the early 4G headstart.

    What this guy said! It's what I'm doing....waiting till EE is available in my area which won't be for ages, so gonna get my money's worth while I can by being on a cheap amazing rolling monthly contract, and this £12.90 deal is just that! My sim expected to be delivered Monday, but may even come tomorrow!

    Think it's only 200 mins but still awesome, unlimited data, 5000 texts!

    Just bare in mind you can't tether on the cheaper 3 contracts, while you can on the T-mobile ones (if that is important to you).

    Are you sure new customers can tether on T-Mobile?

    I've been told that new customers need to buy a booster to tether...

    Never understood tethering.....never done it really that necessary??? When I'm home I use wifi from my home broadband provider, when I'm out I use 3G, and now it's unlimited and it really worth it?

    Good deals there if you don't use many minutes. Only £6.90 if you only want 500mb instead of all you can eat.

    Isn't the £6.90 deal a 12 month contract tho? Still good I admit!

    So it is. Still great value. It's good to know exactly what you need. So many people pay for minutes etc they never use.
