Default Tesco SIM card

Hi,

I recently bought a Tesco SIM card. It works OK but there are a couple of
things.

1) There are some numbers stored in the sim already, all start with > such
as ">Home phone 8000680818". I have tried deleting these and they seem to go
but when I switch the phone off and back on they return! any way round this?

2) How do I turn off the balance alert text ?

Thanks.

As Supermarket PAYG SIMs go I think Asda is best value, assuming your handset is unlocked to Vodafone.

In theory I'd agree. However I just bought a Tesco fone for about 16
Nokia 1280 and bought 20 top up. This they trebled to 60 (bonus must
be used in a month) AND I can list five special numbers and get 50%
discount on them so texts work out about 3p.

Depends how heavy a user you are?
Best heavy user PAYG tariff is Three Flat 12, with stretch 25 added
which triples the mins and or text, and includes 100 3 to 3 mins,
with 150mb of data, and free Skype.

Unfortunately as this tariff is now ringfenced, you'd have to buy
one for transfer from an existing user
