T-Mobile UK Introduces New Tariffs From 1st February 2010

T-Mobile UK is revamping it’s portfolio of tariffs from 1st February 2010. Existing Combi, Flext and U-Fix tariffs will be replaced with new 18 and 24-month deals. We are not sure at this moment that T-Mobile will still offer 12 months tariffs or not. It looks like telco is moving away from short pay monthly contracts, it has already stopped selling them online, though you can still get them via phone or in the shop.

Here are highlights of new monthly plans:

  • Customers can get fixed minutes and text deals on the following monthly costs – £10, £15, £20, £25, £30, £35 and £40 (24 month contracts)
  • The deals will also be available on 18 month contracts for an additional £5 per month.

Tariffs range from 100 minutes and 100 texts for £15 per month to 1,200 minutes and 500 texts for £35 a month. Customers will pay £5 more for 18-month tariffs than 24-month deals allowing equivalent monthly airtime. Customers will now get a Flexible booster in addition to their text and minutes as part of their contract, which they can change each month. The flexible boosters include:

  • Unlimited texts
  • Unlimited internet
  • Unlimited landline talk
  • Unlimited T-Mobile talk
  • Euro talk & text
  • USA & Canada talk
  • Europe &Amsterdam talk

Customers can ALSO buy another booster in addition to the one with their contract for only £5 extra a month.

T-Mobile is also dropping its ‘Solo’ SIM-only brand from March 1 for a range of ‘SIM-only’-branded propositions at new pricepoints. Rolling one-month deals start at £10 per month for 100 minutes and 100 texts,  and rise to £25 per month for 900 minutes and 500 texts.

Twelve-month SIM-only deals allow 600 minutes and 500 texts for £15 a month, and rise to 1,200 minutes and 500 texts for £25 per month. All unlimited text bundles have been removed.

SIM-only customers also get to select a free booster, and opt in for further bundles at £5 a go.

Existing Solo plans (affording 300 minutes and unlimited texts for £15 a month, 600 minutes and unlimited texts for £20 a month and 800 minutes and unlimited texts for £25 a month) are available until March 1.

T-Mobile Revamps Flext Tariff From April 2009

Following out earlier post about T-Mobile including 08* numbers into Flext bundles, here are further details about Flext revamp.

From April 2009, T-Mobile’s popular Flext tariff will be refreshed to give more value to customers. New benefits will include: International calling and texting, 08 numbers and unlimited web’n’walk access.

Flext customers can now take advantage of the following features as part of their monthly allowance, without incurring extra charges:

* The inclusion of over 50 of the most popular international calling destinations, so customers can use their allowance to call or text friends and family abroad
* Calls to our most popular 08 numbers, including telephone banking, key utility and customer service lines and premium rate numbers
* Special offer of unlimited web’n’walk access to enable customers to enjoy the whole internet on their phonetmob_logo_notagline_120×60.gif
* The inclusion of access to voice mail messages as part of the new Flext package
* A free weekly text alert to be able to keep track of spending and detailing their remaining credit during the month

You should be signing up for 18 months contract with T-Mobile, credit includes 92% of the most popular international calling destinations, to over 50 countries:
Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Channel Islands, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Isle of Man, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, USA

Also 89% of most popular 08 numbers are included (Flext inclusive 08 number calls are to numbers starting with 0800, 0808, 0845, 0844, 0843, 0842 and 0870. Calls to numbers starting with 0500 are included too.)

This is a good news if you have relatives or friends abroad, you can call or text them and it will be included in your monthly allowance. T-Mobile website doesn’t mention at what rate international calls will be charged (deducted from allowance). Probably details will be announced later, closer to launch.

O2 To Give Away iPhone For Free

From 3rd April, O2 introduces new iPhone tariffs, which will enable you to get iPhone for free! Sounds nice but downside is you have to sign up for 24 months contract or pay almost £45 per month on 18 months contract.

iPhone proved to be very popular among UK punters, O2 sold over million iPhones.

Below is the table with new iPhone tariffs:

T-Mobile To Include Some 08* Numbers To Tariff Allowance

According to Mobile Magazine website T-Mobile is planning to include calls to some 08* numbers to minutes included in Flext tariffs. At the moment it is reported that calls to 0800, 0845 and 0870 (excluding premium rate lines) numbers will be included as part of the bundled minutes. tmob_logo_notagline_120×60.gif

T-Mobile follows announcement by BT that calls to 0800 numbers will be free for its BT Mobile customers on 4th February 2009. Offer will be available to customers who are upgrading and will be available to new customers later on. Minimum Flext tariff is £35 a month.

The new tariffs also allow customers to make international UK to Europe calls that are deducted from their bundle.

This is really good move from T-Mobile, we hope that other mobile operators will follow. It would be nice if T-Mobile also included 0844 numbers, these were included in bundled minutes before but withdrawn later in 2006.
