GiffGaff are right up there as one of the UK's best mobile networks. Call prices, while not the cheapest you'll find, are certainly near to the lower end of the scale, the same is also true for texts. However, GiffGaff is most definitely the cheapest network for sending MMS messages, and is one of only three networks that don't charge a single penny for calling 0800 numbers. The most unique aspect of GiffGaff, however, is that it is partly run by the very people that use the network - the customers. This is why GiffGaff customer services are right up there with the best you'll find.

While we do have a seperate section further down the page for mentioning any special deals or offers these networks carry, it's definatley worth mentioning the Hokey Cokey Goodybag in this review, as it's the most unusual offer we've seen when it comes to mobile networks. For £5 a month you get the normal things you might expect, 60 minutes of free calls, 300 UK texts, and unlimited internet - which in itself is a deal and a half. The unusual aspect of this 'goodybag' however, is that you receive a free minute of calls to any UK network for every call you receive from a non-GiffGaff number... yeah, you read that right - a free minute for every minute someone not on GiffGaff rings you.

GiffGaff runs on the O2 infrastructure, and has such has excellent coverage for both 2G and 3G. As far as price comparison go, if you compare GiffGaff with O2 for 60 minutes of calls and 30 text messages sent, you'll save yourself £10.80.

Another thing worth mentioning is GiffGaff's reward scheme, by taking part in the community forums by asking questions or answering them, GiffGaff will reward you with cash or phone credit. Some members manage to cover their phone bill in this way.

Their call prices aren't the cheapest, neither are their text rates, but the fact that MMS messages are so cheap, 0800 numbers are free, and the fantastic goodybag offers, as well as the customer rewards scheme, it's certainly well worth signing up for.


Pricing

Calls Texts Data MMS Voicemail 0800 0870
£0.10p £0.06p £0.20p £0.16p £0.08 £0.00 £0.20p

Call prices are towards the lower end of the cost scale at just 10p per minute, the same is also true for texts at 6p per message. MMS prices are the cheapest you'll find on any UK network at 16p each. 0800 numbers are actually as they should be - free - which is something it share with just two other networks, 3 and Vodafone. Data prices are low at 20p per megabyte, especially when you factor in the 20mb of free data per day that GiffGaff gives you for just 20p. 0870 numbers will set you back 20p per minute, which is still 21p cheaper than the highest charging network.
