Very appropriate team up. Both would happily let you bung them in a trolley and wheel them home for £30.

TESCO MOBILE GETS PEOPLE TALKING WITH UNLIMITED MOBILE DEAL
Tesco Mobile today unveils a brand new credit crunch-beating Unlimited tariff, allowing people to talk and text as much as they want without worrying about their monthly phone bills.
The SIM only, pay monthly deal, gives people unlimited minutes, texts and browsing for just £30 a month. With everyone watching their wallets, this means no more worries about going over your free minutes and getting bill shock at the end of the month.
Research from Tesco Mobile showed that in this financial climate, worry over the cost of monthly bills frequently led to people spending less time on the phone to friends and family as they would like to.
59% of Brits said they would spend more time on the phone if they had unlimited minutes.
Over half of all respondents (52%) also claimed they had friends or relatives who cut short phone calls to keep costs down.
Nearly half admitted doing this themselves (49%) despite it being voted one of the most annoying breaches of ‘mobile phone etiquette’.
With over 85% of the population now owning a mobile phone, mobile use has developed its own ‘rules’ for behaviour. Asked to name the most unacceptable and annoying mobile phone habits, the majority were a result of people worrying about their bills. The top 5 worse offenders were:
- Talking to other people in the room whilst on the phone
- ‘Drop calling’ – calling then hanging up so people have to return the call
- Texting people to ask them to call back
- People not picking up voicemails to save money
- Cutting short phone calls to cut down on bills
Lance Batchelor, Chief Executive Officer of Tesco Mobile and Tesco Telecoms said:
“Ours is the only pay monthly deal that gives consumers truly unlimited calling and texting. You don’t have to choose if you’re a chatterbox or a texter, you can use your mobile as much as you want without having to worry about the cost.
“We believe that this will change the way people use their mobile phones. The new tariff aims to give people a simple, guaranteed way to have unlimited calls, texts and browsing. It takes away the concern and uncertainty about your monthly bill as it’s fixed at £30, meaning you can talk, text and browse freely, and avoid the annoying habits revealed by our research.”
