TalkTalk offers £1.25 per month cheapest smartphone contract

Luke Johnson



Bit part network provider TalkTalk has announced its latest initiative to rival the industry’s big boys, introducing a new £1.25 per month smartphone contract deal.

Looking to undercut the competition, TalkTalk has revealed its latest contract deals in partnership with Chinese handset manufacturer Huawei, with a range of budget phones now available on a variety of cut-price contracts.

Pairing the entry level Huawei Ascend Y210 with a wallet-friendly TalkTalk Small Plan tariff, those after a smartphone on the cheap will be able to pay a mere £1.25 per month for the first six months, jumping to just £5 per month for the remaining 18 months of the deal.

For this minimal outlay, adopters will see their free handset paired with a modest usage allowance, with 100 anytime, any network minutes coming bundles with 250 inclusive texts and a 100MB monthly data allowance.

“It’s amazing that TalkTalk customers can now enjoy all the benefits of a smartphone, like being able to check emails and look up maps on the go, for less than it costs to catch a bus in most parts of Britain,” Dan Meader, Mobile Director at TalkTalk said.

He added: “This is another example of TalkTalk and Huawei working together to bring lower prices and better value to British customers.”

For those after a little more power in their device, £3.75 per month will bag you the mid-market Huawei Ascend G510 alongside the TalkTalk Medium Plan which includes 300 monthly minutes, 3,000 texts and 500MB of data. This deal will jump to £10 per month following the first six months.

I could understand why TalkTalk might headline the £1.25 per month figure, leaving the reader to discover the truth three paragraphs later. But I can't understand why Trusted Reviews would play the same card.

Absolutely! It's £5.00 a month. Why say something different?

Talktalk are preying on families who are unable to afford a real mobile with a proper contract. Every month, we get charged between £18 and £30, instead of the £1.25 we are expecting. We never use the internet, we just text, and keep phone calls to a minimum. We can't afford to buy groceries this week, because we've used all our child benefit to pay the phone bill!
We want to cancel the contract, but are scared that they'll give us an unpayable fine. When you trust a provider with your card details, they shouldn't take he bread out of your children's mouths!
