    It looks like you also have to cancel a monthly £1.99 charge to continue for free every month (small text).
    Only cause you signed up to the Premium Voice Trial (free for first month 1.99 thereafter) in the basket screen shot. If you don't sign up for that then its free with no hassles.

    Re: Freedom Pop launches its free mobile service in the UK

    Not sure I'd want to risk it after being caught by OVIVO mobile going under. Also why no 500Mb service? 200Mb is too little and I've survived on 500Mb for years due to wifi at work/home... Really can't find any decent alternative to my £8 a month tmobile SIM only deal...

    500MB? Tesco mobile do £7.50 a month SIM only, I think Three do £8 but a Three Pay as you Go deal is probably cheaper. Top up for £10 and you get a 150MB of data free and then at 1p/MB so the tenner should get you through a couple of months. Down to whether you can be bothered with the hassle of topping up vs saving a few quid. My daughter should run out of credit on her awful Orange deal this weekend, I have a Three SIM waiting

    Perfect for the 2nd SIM card slot on my Moto G. Now I can finally stop buying those £5 pre-loaded EE SIM cards for 99p on Ebay.

    Re: Freedom Pop launches its free mobile service in the UK

    Hmm, less than £12/month for unlimited/unlimited/2GB sounds pretty reasonable to me - especially for one of my teenagers. Downside is that it's Three backending it - which means spotty/no signal where I live - dammit!

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I should have mentioned I can't get vodaphone signal and o2 data doesn't work in my house (and I live in a small town)... I keep meaning to try 3 - maybe I should give their PAYG sim a trail though as that sounds reasonable. (I use to be able to switch between tmobile and orange - not any more!)

    Re: Freedom Pop launches its free mobile service in the UK

    I can't see what this costs if you go over your 200MB limit. One of the nice bits with Tesco and Three is their ability to offer capped price contracts.

    Re: Freedom Pop launches its free mobile service in the UK

    even the £11.99 option is excellent for the price, my $25.00 plan in Canada only gets me 200min/month (with unlimited evenings/weekends) and unlimited text messages with no Data, so I mean if they Came to Canada I would be totally happy as long as they had good coverage. the premium plan would be even cheaper then my current plan if they just did a straight exchange rate!

    Says in the first picture it's 1.5p per mb unless you're on their premium plan and which case it's 1p per mb.

    Don't know about the mins and texts though. Probably pretty visible on the website.
