Lycamobile – new entrant into the Irish Mobile phone market – Great offers

Hi all,

I was in Galway earlier today, dropping off my mum at the bus station :(, and decided to go for a stroll into Galway City where I did some pre Christmas shopping( Debenhams were having a GREAT sale ) and made my way to Shop Street, where I wandered into Carphonewarehouse.

There was a huge Lycamobile sign. I have seen Lycamobile in the UK and in other  European countries, but never seen it in Ireland, so I thought I’d inquire about the offerings of their plans.
Below are the Sim Only pricing, so you’ll need to have an( unlocked) phone for their Sim Card to work in your phone.
Ordering a SimCard is free and you could pick up a phone for less than 20 Euros at Carphonewarehouse. (why not order one before visiting Ireland)

This is really a very good offering, so you can have unlimited calls ( Irish mobile and landline)  unlimited texts( Ireland only)  and unlimited data when in Ireland for 29 Euros a month – and it’s on a pay as you go formula, so no long contracts. Internationals calls are extra, but- like Tesco’s – very competitive.

They have a number for special offers , offering double credit when topping up online, free calls between other international Lyca customers, and a variety of international call rates to landlines for just 1 cent.

I haven’t really found another provider that offers this.
Tesco’s offerings are very competitive too, but you’ll still need to choose between having unlimited calls OR unlimited texts and you’ll need a Tesco Clubcard to get the added freebies.(and no unlimited data)
Top Up and we’ll give you
€5 FREE Tesco Mobile to Tesco Mobile texts.

For anyone who is coming out of their contract, it’s worthwhile to check out your SIM only options, as there are ways to cut your running mobile phone bills..
You can check out www.callcosts.ie – thought I am not sure how up to date their calculators are!
Have a great week!
