BT Mobile offers double data and up to £85 cashback with selected phone plans

Tuesday, February 13th 2018 by Steve McCaskill

BT Mobile is offering double data allowances on selected pay monthly plans, with a wide range of handsets eligible and BT Reward Cards also up for grabs.

‘The Perfect All Rounder’ Plan includes unlimited minutes and texts alongside 6GB of data – double the original 3GB allocation.

Meanwhile the Max Plan’s 6GB of data has been doubled to 12GB and also includes unlimited minutes and texts.

How much you pay per month, and how much you pay up front, is dependent on the handset. Fortunately, BT is offering an extensive range that covers all price points and even the latest flagship devices.

The cheapest devices are the Android-powered Nokia 3 and Samsung Galaxy J3 smartphones, both of which are free with either plan. The All Rounder bundle is £22 a month and the Max plan is £27.

The more powerful Sony Xperia L1 and the entry level iPhone SE are both £10 up front with the £27 All Rounder plan but come free with the £32 Max Plan.

Further up the food chain, on some premium handsets the double data offer applies to the Essential Plan, which doubles up from 3GB to 6GB, while its the Perfect All Rounder that goes from 6GB to 12GB.

The top of the range iPhone X (pictured) is £250 upfront then £60 on the Essential plan and £150 upfront then £65 a month on the All Rounder. The Google Pixel 2 is £100 upfront then £47 a month on the Essential plan, and costs £50 upfront plus £52 a month on the All Rounder.

If you are a BT broadband subscriber at home, you will get an additional £5 off each month.

All contracts come with a free six-month subscription to the BT Sport app, which offers live Premier League, Champions League, MotoGP and Premiership Rugby as well as many other sports across its five channels.

Customers also have free access to the BT wi-fi network, which now comprises five million hotspots. This means if you are caught in an area with poor signal, or want to save your data allowance, you shouldn’t be too far away from one.

The value of the BT Reward Card is also dependent on the handset. For example, if you opted for the Nokia 3 on the All Rounder Plan, you’ll get £25. Meanwhile, if you pick the iPhone X on the Max Plan, you’ll get £85.

The Reward Cards are essentially pre-paid MasterCard cards that can be used at most retailers.

After selling O2 in 2005, BT returned to the consumer mobile market in 2014 with plans to run a 4G service on top of the EE network. By the time it launched BT had decided to buy EE outright, although BT Mobile and EE are still different services.

What this means for customers is that BT Mobile offers the same coverage as EE, which covers 99% of the UK population and 86% of the UK landmass. There are plans to extend this to 95% before the end of the decade.
