Used this network? Please leave a rating between zero and ten:


In June 2011 Asda Mobile increased their rates by 50%, taking them from being perhaps the cheapest network, to around about the 7th cheapest UK network for the cost of calls per minute. Even with this price hike, compared to the larger UK networks Asda offer noticeably lower prices in most areas. 0800 calls are charged a 10 pence per minute, which is a lot cheaper than the likes of Virgin Mobile who charge in excess of 40 pence per minute.

Asda Mobile runs on the Vodafone infrastructure, so 2G coverage is excellent. 3G coverage is somewhat lower than other networks, covering 80% of the UK. Despite running on the Vodafone network, the differences in prices is astonishing, making 120 minutes of calls and sending 75 texts using an Asda Mobile sim card compared to a Vodafone one will save you £22.50.

Your mobile phone may need to be unlocked in order work with Asda Mobile. This can be done at stores that offer phone unlocking services, or via some websites.

In order to top-up you Asda Mobile Pay As You Go phone there are several options; you can use your top-up card at all Asda stores as well as participating stores showing the Top-Up logo, buy vouchers, or register your credit/debit card and calling 2732.

10 pence per minute for calls puts Asda Mobile with several other mobile networks, and is not considerably higher than the cheapest networks. Text are just 6 pence, which puts them in fourth place for their cost. Calls to 0800 numbers are not priced unreasonably when compared to other networks, and calls to 0870 numbers are among the cheapest you'll find.
