  5. We may set a credit limit on your account until you have established a good payment history with us or if you fail to pay your account on time. We may increase, decrease or remove your credit limit without notice. If you exceed the credit limit we set, we may suspend any or all of the Tesco Mobile Services you use until you have made a payment to your account. You should not use the credit limit for budgeting as the amount you owe is not capped or limited by any credit limit we set. You may contact Tesco Mobile’s Customer Care team on 1903 at any time to find out your then current credit limit and or modify the limit. See the following ‘Your Credit Limit Explained’ which provides further information as to how the credit limit is set .
  6. The value of your usage outside your Plan is limited by TMI. The value at which this limit is set to is dependent on your billing payment history. You will be notified by text when you have reached 80% of this limit, and again at 100% of this limit. Upon reaching 100% of your limit your account will be restricted from making chargeable calls. When this happens you will need to call Customer Care and make a payment for the value of your usage to have the restriction lifted. Please note this can take up to 12 hours for normal service to be fully restored. TMI reserve the right to decrease a customer’s credit limit without notice.
  7. If you wish to make international calls or use our international roaming service we may ask you to demonstrate a satisfactory billing history. Unless otherwise stated, if you use your mobile phone abroad (outside of the EU) you will be charged for usage.
  8. We will try and provide you with the Services at all times but due to the nature of mobile technology, Tesco Mobile is not in a position to guarantee or offer any minimum service levels. We will at all times use the reasonable skill and care of a competent Service Provider in providing the Services to you in accordance with and subject to our Agreement, but we shall not be responsible for any delay or failure to provide Services for reasons beyond our reasonable control. Service availability is subject to Network availability and certain Services require 3G and 4G enabled handsets – see our coverage map at .
