Separate phone is the only way to go - then there is really no risk or something unexpected happening.

I splashed out on a  new Nokia for a tenner a while back - better battery life (less need to charge) and smaller than older phones. I also keypad lock it so nobody can easily see anything on it. Nothing stops you removing the SIM whenever you aren't using it but a SIM with prossy numbers on would be hard to explain. You could do a factory reset and full wipe after each punt. If it's ever found you could say you found it in the street and tossed it in the car and forgot about it.

I have vodafone and haven;t been disconnected despite sporadic use. I just top up a tenner anyway so if they did I just get a new SIM and lose a few pennies.

Someone on here suggested storing all numbers as postcode/name which has worked well for me, especially when looking for a plan B.

I use a dual sim phone and keep all the prossie numbers on the sim card rather than the phone memory. When the punting sim is off it's like it doesn't exist. When I want to phone a prossie I deactivate my usual sim and activate the punting sim. Saves me carrying two phones around or hiding the punting phone.

I've got an old phone lying about, how can I tell if it's unlocked or not? :unknown:

For a punting sim go to www.ovivomobile.com

A one-off payment of £15 and you get 300 mins and 300 text and data each month and it just tops up to the original balance

NOTHING MORE TO PAY

You can also get a sim for IPAD with loads of data for the same price

Looks a great phone plan thanks  :drinks:, and I keep meaning to get around to ordering a Sim.  :thumbsup:

A small point, but isn't it a one off payment of £20 now?  :hi:

Quote from: Ovivo website
Freedom 0  - You pay £20 today, and we give you £15 of free credit once you've activated your SIM card. The remaining £5 will cover the SIM card and our administration costs

I bought a smartphone for punting, but I like it so much I'd prefer to use it as my personal phone.

I also bought a pay-as-you-go Vodafone 354 in 2012 for punting -



I feel I ought to make an effort to get it unlocked and try it with an Ovivo sim, but slightly worried I might cock it up and brick the phone. Although, I'm punting most weeks now and getting through £10 credit on pay-as-you-go each month, so it's got to be worth trying to unlock it.

I need VPN on mobile internet, which is specifically disallowed on Ovivo, so I'll have to stick with a "normal" provider for that.

Offline Steve2

My 1st one was £10 and the 2nd £15. £20 is still great value

Not sure what VPN is but their sim works fine in my Ipad for data

Unlock Vodaphone 354 for 99p on ebay

Insert a sim card from another network or try two different network sims.

1.  Try a couple of different network SIMs in it and see if they work.

2.  Go to your local phone shop.

Offline Rayban

The ovivo deal looks excellent but it looks like you need to give name and address details to get it?

Some good phones out there.  It's too rich for me, but for the well heeled punter...

Thanks, but I don't have any other sims and it's not worth buying one just to find out.

Thanks, good idea. I may take it to one of those guys with the makeshift kiosks you see around town.

You can get them form 50p or a quid - trivial in the scheme of things.

Use an old phone an Nokia if you don't have one use ebay to buy it for "emergencies" if anyone is interested why. Lots of stores have phones for FREE (entry level, must top up £10) but they require your home address etc.

As for the sim - supermarkets from tesco to the coop still sell SIM cards for cash without the need to register your address. I like three it's 3p/m on calls and 2p per text

Offline Glader

dont be a cheap ass.

CPW sell phones with £20 credit for around £20-25. you just need texting and calling. Convert the calling credit into a bundle or just pay as you ho...

dump phone in nearest river after use.

Care to share where I can get a sim for such a small price? What network would these be on?

My local corner shop has a sign advertising any network SIM for 99p.

cheap 20 quid phone on pay as you go does me for punting

Offline CBPaul

The main reason for a punting phone is to avoid getting caught, balance getting caught against a trip to Tesco and spending a tenner on a phone. No contest
Average 120 quid for an hours punting, 10 quid for a phone - no contest

Tesco do a Samsung E1200 and a Nokia 100 both for £9 PAYG. SIMs are £1 as others have said. Pay cash, job done. Cheap basic phones but you don't need anything more.

Without my punting phone I would have been in serious trouble a couple of times.

Most pound sops sell sims for different networks, they usually place them by the tills - not that I ever visit poundshops of course   :blush:


If you want to save money I know that the 99p shop sells them by the tills. I've seen them when I walk past.

Offline Anadin

You can buy sims from ebay preloaded with more credit than the cost of the sim

If you have a iphone as a punting phone, and say set up a separate apple account for it, bloody apple still want card details on signing up! Any suggestions?

PAYG Credit Card??

LycaMoney or CashPlus. You would still need an address as to where the card is sent to, so it could be tricky. You then only top-up the required amount.

At one point, it used to be easy, as you could buy a card from a newsagent, etc then top it up.

I know of a friend who has an apple account on i-store and has topped up his account using the i-tune vouchers bought from any major supermarkets, so that he has not had to use a debit or a credit card so far.
