Assuming you're talking about just a SIM rather than a phone contract, I don't think you'll be able to find a good deal for unlimited minutes.

As far as I know, the two best options are O2 for £44 unlimited or Tesco for £25 and 3000 minutes.

Unlimited minutes generally costs a lot, they're only even offered on a few consumer contracts, they're usually the reserve of the business world.

Also, do you really need truly unlimited mins? Do you spend 1200+ mins on the phone each month?

The Full Monty from £36pm with a free phone comes with 2000 mins (24 months)
The Full Monty from £41pm with a free phone comes with 'unlimited' minutes (24 months)

O2:
On And On Sim Only from £26pm comes with 'Unlimited' Minutes (12 Month)
On And On from £36pm with a free phone comes with 'unlimited' minutes (24 month)

Are any of the unlimited ones truly unlimited (like unlimited business contracts usually are)?

Orange had a fair use policy of 3000. They used to call it unlimited but they recently changed it to show 3000.

O2 used to be 4000 mins fair use. Not sure what it is now. T-Mobile i have no idea about. I just know both companies have a fair use policy in place for their unlimited calls. So i guess they just warn customers if they start 'abusing their unlimited' minutes.

Texts are the same, o2 is 2,990 fair use. Orange, t-mo, vodafone are 3000 fair use. Three actually state their fair use as 5000 on the advert which is good.

Who the hell spends more than 3000 mins (50 hours) per month on the phone in order to get warned by their network haha :D?!

People used to do it back when Unlimited minutes was cheap. I remember people just leaving their phones on a call 24/7 so it forced the network to buy out the contract from the consumer because it was getting too expensive for them to run. (this was before T&C's and fair use policies were written for minutes) I had a friend who did this ages ago. He got 50% off his line rental to stop i think. (not making this up by the way, i was shocked when he told me)

But yeh, who would do that now!
