Review

Carphone Warehouse's TalkMobile is a relative newcomer to the UK mobile phone network market, having only been formed in 2008. If you've looked at our Mobile Network Comparison Table you'll have noticed that TalkMobile are ranked number 2 for the cheapest call rates at just 8p per minute, and number 1 for text rates at 4p per text - that's not for this tariff but for their other tariff, TalkMobile Essentials.

TalkMobile Rewards is the more expensive of the two TalkMobile tariffs on offer, with an amazing 17p difference in the price of calls and a 6p difference on text rates between tariffs.

You might be asking yourself why there's such a difference in the prices; it's because on TalkMobile's Rewards plan, you get to choose between unlimited free texts, free international minutes, free UK minutes, or free UK minutes and texts as a reward for paying the higher prices.

TalkMobile runs on the Vodafone infrastructure so coverage for both 2G and 3G is excellent. Customer services are excellent, with complaints few and far between.

25p for calls makes TalkMobile's Rewards plan one of the more expensive, while still being cheaper than the major UK phone networks. 10p for texts is again towards the higher end of the scale, being just 2p cheaper than the dearest. 25p for the first 25MB of data is excellent value, but make sure you don't go over that allowance or you will see your bank account take a firm whack. 0800 and 0870 numbers are both 20p and are 21p cheaper than the highest chargers in this category.
