I had to put the whole detail there in the headline. It was too good to split up.

Phil Lattimore over at Total Mobile posted a note about T-Mobile’s mates rates pass earlier this week.

It’s a pretty cool deal for Pay As You Go customers. Here’s how it works: You pay five pounds. For the next five days, you can send unlimited texts and make unlimited calls (fair use) to anyone on T-Mobile.

When the five days are up, you can pay another £5 and get another 5 days of unlimited usage….

Theoretically that means that you could do this 6 times a month and get unlimited calls and texts — costing you a very reasonable £30 a month. Or, another way to look at it, unlimited usage of the T-Mobile network for a quid a day.

Very cool.

Have a look at the details: T-Mobile Mates Rates five day pass

Alas this is just yet another reason as to why I feel a plonker sat here with a T-Mobile *contract* that offers no such wickedly cool deals. Hmph.

    together with Vodafones recent “£5 for your little family unit of 4 to all call each other” deal; this shows how desperate operators are becoming to get more customers signed up.

    Because a quick survey in our little office and only Mark could go on to this £5 pass; but he doesnt know anybody else on t mobile…so he would first have to tell all his mates to switch network. I think t mobile/vodafone are massively over-estimating how likely this is gonna be. Why would I switch from my voda contract just for a gimmick which will be surpassed next month with another totally different deal.

    my t mobile rating will be going down tomorrow…7/10 for trying; 3/10 for execution; 10/10 for desperation

    I really like this 5 day pass from T-mobile but the only problem is that T-mobile doesnt have the pull of people like it did in the pass- there was a time when almost everyone was on T-mobile network- but now most people including my self are on another network. So it may seem like a bargin but whos on T-mobile anymore?

    Great to have, but if you are like me trying to get your next bundle of 5 days pass between midnight and 5am it is impossible to get through. You can’t get your pass till 7-7.30am the next day. Any hard and fast rules on this people? I am getting really annoyed

  9. fahim June 16, 2007 at 3:08 pm #

    first you’ve gotta switch to Mates Rates on T-Mobile, then simply top up 5 pounds (150) then phone 879 and keep pressing 1 till the lady shuts up and takes your money, then your free to go Crazy!

    I love the 5 day pass, pretty much everyone i know is or has switched over to T-Mobile in the last month or so, its the best thing since sliced bread!

    i can’t really believe how t-mobile could turn the 5 day pass from £5 to £7.50
    it’s not fair and t-mobile is loosing costomers than before
    to tell you the truth some of my mates are deprest because they used to do 5 day pass every week because they could afford it but now they can’t afford it and can’t do 5 day pass wich means they can’t keep in contact with other mates.
    it’s not only me who hates the way it isbut there is other people
    please i hope you change it
