    Default Burner / punter phones

    After using my own phone for years I decided to get a designated phone fo punting , I have had s bill paid phone for decades , but not used to pre-pay .
    I buy 10 top with cash , but doesn't seem to last long even with not many calls,( do you have a certain time to use credit ) they want credit card details etc to do a deal ,which defeats the purpose of being discreet , any suggestions ?

    You must be very chatty! I use a cheap Tesco Mobile PAYG one, topped up with vouchers. I have put a total of 50 on it, for over 40 appointments - a tiny fraction of my costs. It is a UK number so I would expect calls to Irish numbers to be more expensive as well.

    Turn off all the other features on your phone, particularly the internet, mobile data etc. A lot of phones use a push service to keep themselves updated, and this features connects periodically to the internet, which will use credit.

    Yeah. They'll want to sign something for the guarantee just make up a name an address. Seen a ready to go smartphone for around 40 quid in a vodafone shop there recently.

    €20/month vodaphone gives unlimited calls to other vodaphone numbers for the month. You will be charged for calls to other networks but you should get quite a bit out of it if you keep calls short.
    Tesco is probably the most economical, 15 euros gives a large volume of calls and a generous internet allowance for the month, of course some do not like 089.
    Others will probably knoe about other networks or deals.
