Thread Name: BS: Talk Talk contract ending.
Subject: RE: BS: Talk Talk contract ending.
My mobile service is with GiffGaff PAYG. Usage is about 5 over 3 months. When I was with Orange/EE I kept the "Racoon" package until they announced they would double the costs to 35p/minute, 15p texts.

Now I don't have to have 40 years experience as an Electronic Engineer to figure that texts use about 1-2 seconds of data, they give them away free in the 1000's to other packages. More rip-off Brittain. It wasn't about the money per se, it was the texts that took a week to be delivered that pissed me off. Holding on to texts makes them more expensive, so why do it?

GiffGaff are way cheaper, their website can do far more than just top-up, it allows myriad settings. EE's was adverts, adverts, and top-up (if you could find it), and nothing else! GiffGaff e-mail with my usage each month and text me with my balance after each call/text so I never get caught out with no credit.

GiffGaff the page looks like you get a deal to start with now, but after the first month it devolves to PAYG, or you can set it to.
