iD Mobile - 'ShockProof' (1mo)- 2000m, 5000t, 6gb - £15PM - HERE*

6GB shockproof from iD mobile is £12.50 if you go through uswitch! Only 500 minutes instead of 2000, but for those who want cheap data it's a fantastic deal.
Here's a link https://www.uswitch.com/mobiles/sim_only_deal/a534aa17c41a242b81503c3d42269e04d7c85302?comparison=cD0vbW9iaWxlcy9jb21wYXJlL3NpbV9vbmx5X2RlYWxzLyZwbz0w

SIM only contract with Life mobile only cover 2G and 3G! Which means which means you'll pretty much be missing out on seamless data usage.
3G coverage is far better than 4G. I suppose there are places where there's 4G and no 3G, but they must br few and far between. Anyway, if you have the lower tier plans with only 1 or 2GB of data the additional bandwidth of 4G isn't going to be hugely useful.


I agree!
Just off the phone with talkmobile.
I've currently got 2 lines wiht EE under one account and one PAC to transfer.

Talk mobile have advised that they would need to do 2 credit checks off the bat if I wanted 2 sims! Meh
Anyone managed to get a decent sim only deal with 02 ? looking for a decent data allowance.
The iD mobile 6GB 1 month plan listed can be for £12.50/month if you go through uSwitch (saving £2.50/month on an already pretty good deal)

Tempted but the reports in the news about Vodafone and the way they have treated customers has been shocking to say the least has put me off.

Good deal, but its a shame they've put the price up 11% since they last did this sort of deal about 6mths ago.

Also, I think this deal below works out better because of the possibility of £140 cashback by redemption and £5 Quidco (whereas the Quidco on the OP's deal is £65):
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/vodafone-sim-unlimited-calls-20gb-data-unlimited-messages-266-40-mobiles-140-cashback-2487737

IF Redemption is your cup of tea- then sure why not- but you have to send bills at certain interval (Month 4, 6 9 and 12 I think) which means a lot of hassle.


Well, no Quidco/TCB is guaranteed - so the basics of both deals is exactly the same @ £22.20 per month. The carrot of redemption cashback of £140 certainly makes the deal I mentioned a lot better than this deal. I'm not sure what mobiles.co.uk are like for redemption cashback, but given a lot of companies allow you to do it online now, it might not really be that much effort.

Quidco states:
for 12 month SIMO contracts of £23 a month
This is £22.20 a month so I don't see how that's eligible?

My bad...I was sure it said £20 when I looked (dodgy eyesight maybe)
Does sky sport allow me watch couple of theirs channels on the phone?

Our virgin media Internet has been out of action since 16 July . I used up my 250mb virgin mobile allowance and 3-4 days I used £2 per day unlimited Internet allowance . Only managed to clock up 5-6 hundred mb total .That is less than a gb. I'm leaving it for one of other much better deals on offer .

Edited By: Ajazb on Jul 30, 2016 13:16
Cashback *might* not track if you cancel the contract within 30 days, so you'll end up paying at least £10 for another month if you only want a free month's use.
Rolling contract direct with virgin is £10 for 2500 mins unlimited text and 2gb data. Above is ok as a one off but otherwise don't bother.
santashippo
Only posted it because it could be useful for someone wanting a "free" contract

Free for 1 month is a waste of time. Better to just join Life Mobile and pay £6 per month for better allowances and better data speeds.

Can anyone confirm that you can get "12 months free Spotify, Now TV or Sky Sports Mobile" if you buy from mobiles.co.uk please? its not very clear as they don't mention it.
If you buy direct from Vodafone then you get 12 months free Spotify, Now TV or Sky Sports Mobile.
​I was thinking this too when I looked. I think the op needs to back this up somehow

OP doesn't need to 'back this up'. As has been mentioned in this thread a couple of times, if you look at the plan on the vodafone website it is included.

50 degrees for this is crazy. This is the best mobile deal of the year so far if your willing to put up with the redemption hassle. Swapping myself and mrs over to this straight away :)

Just to confirm for existing customers, £4 loyalty discount would not be applied as it's a discounted price.
Amazon voucher would still work if you pass the order ref. number to a customer assistant. (Best way to confirm it on live chat, place order online and pass the ref. no to live chat team)
£19.99 * 12 - £70 = £14.16 p/m (effectively) great win IMHO.
mine was put through at £16.49 due to existing customer discount
how fast does quidco normally track?
Just received the sim but no sign of Amazon voucher, does anyone know when and how it will arrive?

Has the Amazon voucher expired? I tried to use AWSIMO70 and it says Invalid voucher. Please check it.
I applied voucher few minutes ago without any problem .( Limited time only: £70 Amazon voucher with a 12 month £19.99 16GB Sim Only contract )

My mistake. I added existing customer sim deal not the £19.99 for new customers. It works now!

Did you go via Quidco by any chance? Will it track if used Amazon voucher?

I did that a few months ago because they had a double the data deal on (this one I think) for the same price I was paying. They said at present I could not move to it and the only way to get it was to leave them and come back.
I told them that if I was leaving I was not coming back and went to BT for less data but £5 cheaper. However as I have said I was very happy with them when I was with them so much so I moved my wife across to the new deal :)
In fact when my 12 month deal is over with BT I will probably go back to ID.
I can confirm this too

I called yesterday and they said open a new contract, but I'll lose my number

So the only way is to leave

Went with ID after being with Tesco for 2 years and from day 1 it was a joke couldn't get a signal in my house or street and i live in Birmingham, ive never had a issue before. I had 4gb of 4G but couldn't use 500mb as i never had a signal i stuck with it for 3 months until a friend rang the house and asked why my mobile was off when it was on and on the table infront of me. I contacted iD's **** poor customer service and they asked why i wanted to leave, i explained i couldn't get a signal they were not surprised. iD are a joke and its no wonder they give out loads on minutes and data its to tempt people to their service but most leave when they experience the poor signal and customer service. Im now with Life and have no such problems.
So you changed networks without checking whether the new network had a good signal in the places you spend the most time?

It's always worth grabbing a PAYG SIM to test how good the signal on a network you're thinking of signing a contract with is in the places you need it. It doesn't even have to be a SIM from the same MVNO, just one that uses the same actual network (Three, in iD's case).

Also, for what it's worth, iD aren't cheap because the signal is rubbish, they have the same signal as Three....for better or worse.
Can I switch to this if I'm already on ID?

(matt101101 mentioned this before on a previous page). Great deal, heat added. Just got my sim in 24 hours, but be aware that it might not get activated for up to 48 hours, which is annoying for me as I timed my switch from another provider a bit too close!

I've spoken to customer services, they say it can be activated sooner than 48 hours, but an automated process (they can't activate it manually), so I'm currently locked out.

On the sim-card wallet info: "We delay activation of your SIM to ensure that it remains secure during postage. It'll be activated shortly after 12.00pm two days after the date of your dispatch confirmation email."

It is 3g -Talk mobile have been promising 4g for two years whilst supposedly leaving vodaphone as as carrier to join 02 .
But vodaphone bought them out in 2015 and since then no further news of any date for 4g.
There are other deals almost as good but with 4g. I'll move when my contract is up.

They've got some **** on their site about only releasing 4G once everyone in the country can have it
I'm currently with EE. I mentioned the £10pm Virgin offer (2500 minutes, plus 2500 08 numbers, Unlimited SMS, 2GB of data (3G).

For £9.99pm EE offered as 12 month sim-only upgrade:
Unlimited Minutes
Unlimited SMS
2GB of Data (Superfast double speed 4G)
Use of allowance in Europe

EE PROS:
1. Unlimited Minutes
2. 4G data (double speed)

EE CONS:
1. 12 month contract
2. Need to pay £3pm extra for 300 08 numbers

VIRGIN PROS:
1. 2500 Minutes to 08 numbers
2. 30 day rolling contract
3. Good further discounts negotiable

VIRGIN CONS:
1. Allowance not usable in Europe
2. No 4G data
3. Not unlimited minutes (but plenty)

My main gripe with EE is that I pay £3pm extra for the 300 08 numbers. They were not willing to do anything to offset that so I took my PAC code.

Any suggestions?

I cant see why this is hot as it used to have 3000 min for the same price (with 5000 txt, 4Gb data) which I have at home (for my son)..bought it ast January but has been available until few weeks ago. Had £49 TCB with it which for some reason was paid twice ...so final cost was £22/year (£1.83 /month)
Because you can't get that deal at this moment in time.
A house might only have cost you a couple of thousand quid in the late 70s, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a rip off at £250k now.

You have to give them 30 days notice if you want to cancel.
I took out a 30 day rolling SIM, expecting I could cancel at the end of the 30 days (yes, silly me lol)
But, when I phoned them a week into the contract, they said I had to pay for the 2nd month's 30 days,

I went for this the last time it came up in June @ £16 p/m (BT customer).

Got the TCB within a month but only got the initial 'We've received your claim, it will now be checked' email from BT when I claimed the Amazon voucher.

I chased them earlier this week and yesterday for a reply apologising and promising the voucher would be with me within 15 days. Strangely, the reply was titled 'Sainsbury's Gift Card Incident'.

Hopefully it'll turn up.


Snap, my email was also titled sainsburys gift card

People - it works in a MiFi, tethering etc.

It is a pure data SIM. It's official name is a Mobile Broadband PAYG SIM.

I just used it all over Norway and the USA, and it worked great (in a MiFi).
I have a 3 mifi, and also a 3 phone, i tried to put my phone sim into the mifi because i have unlimited data on my phone, The device new that the sim was from my phone and it wouldn't work, so i would guess that putting the data sim into your phone work work either
Squirrrel
Please excuse my stunning naivety and if this has been answered before (but a search got me nothing). If I was to get this, put it in my iPhone, register it and then use it abroad, would it be fine for Google maps, browsing, whatsapp, etc? It would just be no good for phone and texts I'm guessing (which would be fine by me anyway). You don't have to use it in a tablet or mifi?

Yes it can and, as data sim, it is designed for tethering (I called 3G and they confirmed it)

Bought one last Friday for a little bit more from Mymemory; it arrived yesterday. Very good value and delivered on time.
​Can it be used in spain and tethered?
This is a data-only sim, and needs to be used in a tablet, usb dongle or mifi.
It does however come pre-enabled for Three's "Feel at Home" (free roaming in 19 countries.)
But Three's website says it doesn't work for tethering:
"You can't use your phone as a personal hotspot (tethering) while you're abroad."LINK
See bottom of page with the ticks and crosses.
I'm confused.

I'm confused as well because MyMemory say on the link above

'Use your data abroad at no extra cost.

Being charged to use your data abroad isn't great. With Three you can use it abroad at no extra cost in 18 Feel At Home destinations while on holiday, including USA, Australia, France and Spain. See Three.co.uk/feelathome for details. '
Thanks OP, Quidco tracked at 70p

I haven't added a link as it's instore at the moment so I chose the in store option accordingly. Sorry, I didn't state it in my OP.
It's not an offer, but it's a deal if you take the sum prices into account . Only lower one I can find is a BT SIM if you are already a BT custome..
I don't have the whole price list handy or the time to copy them all here. It's worth an ask in store if you are looking for phones or Sims now but, otherwise, the essential plans will be actively available online in 6 days.
Thanks for clarifying, you could make it clearer in the OP that it is currently instore, as I never realised thats what you meant until you replied :)

​Please be a stickler, but sorry to be a stickler but I think you'll find that it's pence not penny...

From a teaching forum. :
Penny refers to an older currency which was replaced in the 1970's by new currency. Originally the new basic coins were called New Pence, but this quite quickly became 'pence'. In day to day discourse people often refer these coins as 'p' as in 15'p'. The correct term to teach you students, therefore, would be the term 'pence'.

Lol good question though, I had to think about that one :)

If I remember correctly the Wileyfox can only run one sim slot that is enabled for 3g/4g at a time ie. It is not dual 3g/4g.
Your other sim will need to be able to run on the 2g network for this '3' data sim to work.

Thank you for this info - so I've changed the default settings and to my amazement it now works! - Thank you so much!

You can only top up from £5 upwards and that will last you 3 months before your credit vanishes. 50 minutes a month for £5 every 3 months if you're lucky and you don't get overcharged. Avoid.

Good Luck.
A sim-only I ordered from Virgin 2 months ago, but cancelled on the day it arrived (because I logged in and say £13 + £2.10 mysterious usage fees) even though I was looking at the unopened Sim pack... VM confirmed it was cancelled - but they still took £13 Direct Debit 2 weeks later. I've now received a letter saying I need to contact to pay them.
What a farce this company is.
I'll be writing a complaint to the regulator.

Why didn't you just ring your bank to cancel the direct debit before it got taken out?
Thanks to those who found out that this was a glitch and wont be honoured. Saved me a lot of hassle :3

Hi Christine,
Thanks for your email.
I'm sorry for any confusion but at Carphone Warehouse we do not sell any Virgin contracts, what we do is set the deal up for you and then you need to contact Virgin directly to finalise it. I'm sorry you were not made aware of this but if you can contact Virgin Media on 0870 280 2394 then they will be able to set this up for you.

Well in their terms and conditions they state:


3. Price and Payment

3.1. The price of the Goods or Services (if any) shall be the price of which we inform you prior to accepting your order. Prices include VAT at current rates unless stated otherwise.

Always a good opening offer at three but then they put your prices up hoping you will stay ,they nearly doubled my contract price when it came to a renew and would not Budge ,so I gave them the Boot, glad I did as I signed up a really good deal with EE for less money and much better signal and coverage
I think that loyalty just isn't rewarded anymore.

3 are idiots.

When they cancelled my One Plan (me having been a customer of theirs from almost when they first started), I called to them up to talk about alternatives. The best offer they could come up with was worse than one of the deals on their own website.

3 can get stuffed.
3 are just a horrible, shabby mobile company that treats loyal customers like crap.
Neilatrix
I was with three for a few years on the one plan. They recently doubled the tariff after years of loyalty. I don't like three anyone they on my blacklist!

What loyalty? You gave them money and you got a service that was much much cheaper than anybody else in return.

I'm not advocating price increases but putting them on your "blacklist" seems a bit over the top.

This doesn't include entertainment, you need a Red Value package for that.
Redemption is a bit easier on 12 month deals, although it is still 5 claims it is 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 months, so once you get to month 4 it's every other bill s easy to remember and takes less time overall. Mobile Phones Direct/The Smartphone Company are simple - takes 2 minutes.
longterm sceptic of redemption but went with mobiles.co.uk on the £3 EE deal few months back and just did the redemption on line so easy, plus I setup reminders in my calendar for all the next redemption points

They have the worst reputation thats why people vote cold
Also like Katestewart9279 said Maybe its due to the cash back redemption. as people have had problems with it. myself I just prefer to pay a sum and have it done with. not faff around with claiming cb every month.
I must agree with her....If they can do it with cashback at that price why can't they just give you it for that in the first place?.....I know because they hope most people won't go ahead and claim the cashback.


​I totally agree. I don't understand the purpose of offering this cash back. I myself am a bit scatter brained so I know I'd miss the date or conditions and maybe this is what they want.

Just got off the phone to EE about half an hour ago, went straight to retentions, said I wanted to upgrade my tariff but said the best I could see them do online is 8gb @ £20, but O2 is doing 10gb for £18 and BT are doing 15gb for £20 but they said BT would do it for £16 as I'm a broadband customer and the EE guy said he'd match that no problem, will start tomorrow (my contract rolls over on the 21st anyway). Great service, the whole thing took 8mins to do (and at least 1min of that was me going through the automated key presses at the start, lol)
He did say the email might say I'll be paying £27 but assures me that's just a fault on their email system.
see my post on the previous page... they should have matched BT @ 15GB for £15.99 and then given you an extra 5GB boost for having broadband. Call them back.

Service runs on the THREE network
- so check your coverage and that your phone is 3G capable (if not a Smart Phone)
i.e.means you need 3G (voice and Data) or 4G service (Data only / fine for Viber, Skype etc)
After 1st month
FREE (always) option = "Basic 200" plan = 200 mins, 200 Texts, 200 MB
which is fine as a standby SIM.... or otherwise general low use

Calls between FreedomPop users also Free.

There is a top plan = unlimited Calls/text + 2GB data = £11.99 / month which for a 30 day contract is not bad.

As for iPad etc,
as with Almost ALL networks these are Phone not Tablet SIMS, so don't expect to get data for free Tethering or in a Tablet.



Edited By: arther2 on Jul 06, 2016 09:18
Have to use the data for the calls, no signal no calls and txts. I was with them a day before I cancelled.

Edited By: jacenj on Jul 05, 2016 21:05
be careful, I got one of these around Xmas and had it in my iPad at home and got hit with a data allowance charge when I went over the free limit even though I had dropped to the free limit

took it out and binned the sim when they told me it made no difference, they don't stop your access once the limit is reached
Free for one month only - don't forget to downgrade before the trial expires
By clicking Activate, you agree to be billed when your one-month free trial ends at normal rate of either £4.99/month or £8.98/month, depending if the optional Premier Service checkbox is selected. You may cancel all services and downgrade to the 100% Free Plan (200 Minutes, 200 Texts, & 200MB per month) at any time during your trial period to avoid a monthly charge. Your FreedomPop service will not begin until your device ships.

I'm thinking about getting this deal, can someone expalin how cashback works? I've never used anything like quidco or whatever before
Quidco and tcb are the easy bit, you buy your product by linking through there website and a few months later you (should) get you £5. The cash back is from the retailer e2save, you send in your bill on certain months to an email or postal address, they then send you a cheque or credit your bank account with the money. Its along time since I've done a deal like this myself, but never had issues in the past. And am currently on a contract with a different retailer with cash back. You need to check there t&cs about which bills yo send in.

Deal is unlimited texts and and voice and 8gb of data. It's more per month but in my opinion you get so much for your £12 per year.
It's a Red Value plan so you can use all minutes and text and 2gb of data abroad and you get get Spotify etc.

Are you sure the above deal includes free Spotify /Netflix etc?

As malky39 posted a few days ago:

if you look at the Vodafone Web site there are two different 8gb plans. This one at £22 which is a 4gb plan with double data but no Spotify etc. and on at £27 which is a standard 8gb plan which includes Spotify etc.

OK, so first of all price for this after one months trial will be £23.97 a month!
There is small print about charge of £13.98 a month for continued service. People be aware, these crooks makes money this way, by misleading adverts and hidden charges.
On this deal page I think it would be appropriate to stat price of £23.97 after one months trial,so everybody knows this.
Thre charges £25 for unlimited data,500 minutes and 3000 texts,so better than this dodgy FreedomPoop...http://i65.tinypic.com/zl6ble.png
This is misleading.
It's £3.99 for the premier service trial which I believe is for support and if you opt in then it's £9.99 + 3.99 = £13.98 after the trial perial ends.
It's NOT £9.99 + £13.98 as mentioned above.

yep that is how i read it too ^^
I think Rimi has completly miss read that part and if it is the same person on the FreedomPop forum i also stated there that i think s/he miss read it.

So much for shock-proof! My daughters been using this for a few months. I rang up to see why I have been paying £10 a month instead of £5 and discovered that after the initial 1gb, you are allowed to go 50mb over at the extortionate cost of an additional £5 before the data is capped. So it has actually been £10 a month for 250mins, 5000 texts and 1.05gb
BT Mobile do the same; 10p/MB beyond your data allowance, though they don't even have the decency to limit you to 50MB!
Anti-consumer practices aren't restricted to the small fish.
This is the exact reason I've never had a mobile phone contract and always go payg, you only need an inadvertent moment when you exceed your data or calls and you get royally stitched up, calls outside your allowance are often 40p or more per minute, why, when no payg plan charges you that much per minute?

I have sim only and unlimited data and 4gb tethering with three for just 2 quid more. Oh 200 mins a month. You just need to ask three in the shop. I did in Kingston. Rolling one month contract too.


Wow! Are you serious...? For £7 a month...?? That's insanely cheap - not that I doubt your veracity but can you please put something up here so I can go into Three store and tell them that I want some of this please..!!???

SIM Only Deals, the Basics



When you purchase a mobile phone, you can choose to buy a new handset along with the right SIM card, or go for a SIM Only package without the handset. SIM Only deals come with different amounts of free minutes, text messages and mobile data. They also tend to cost much less than combination packages, as customers don’t need to pay extra every month to pay off their handset, making them a great option for people on a tight budget or who want a flexible mobile contract.


The History of SIM Cards



When mobile phones first came onto the market in the late 1980s, there was no question of separating the SIM deal from the handset. In fact, the earliest phones didn’t even use Subscriber Identify Modules, which started to be introduced after 1991. Nowadays, SIMs are the nerve centre of most phones, storing data, contact details and determining the identity of mobile subscribers. From the start, they have been used as an international standard, allowing them to be used in different makes of handset, although a number of different types of SIM are currently in use.

What Are SIM Only Deals?



SIM Only deals involve two parties – the customer and the mobile network provider. All that the mobile company does is to provide the customer with a SIM card, which can contain an agreed amount of data, and the customer agrees to pay a certain amount every month for the use of the card.



SIM Only deals can last for a wide variety of contract lengths, which is one of the key differences with SIM and phone deals. By only renting the SIM identity, mobile users can pay for short bursts of phone activity, or extend their contract for months or years, whatever works best for them. In the UK, SIM Only deals account for roughly half of all phone contracts.

SIM Only – Explained by Carphone Warehouse

Different Types of SIM Only Deals



When you take out a SIM Only deal, you can choose a range of different options, including:



Data – Modern mobile phones require powerful data processing capabilities to run apps and access online services like video or audio streaming. Different users have different data requirements, however, so it’s worth thinking about how much you need. Amounts tend to range from 50MB per month to 500MB or more than 2GB, so there’s plenty of choice.


Minutes – Mobile providers compete to provide customers with the largest amount of free minutes per month, with offers providing as much as 600 hours, which is more than most people will need. Some deals sacrifice minutes to offer more data, so if you don’t tend to talk much on your phone, check your package to find the right deal.


SMS – They may be basic, but SMS text messages remain a popular way to communicate. Sending individual text messages might be cheap, but if you send 100 or 200 a month, the cost can stack up. Many SIM Only deals include generous amounts of free texts (as many as 5,000 are common, while some even offer unlimited texts). Obviously, not many people will send that many texts per month, but if you do rely on SMS messaging, these are the deals to go for.


SIM Only deals are also divided by mobile companies into packages for different kinds of user. These include light, moderate and heavy mobile users. The price difference between the different tiers can be significant, but if you rely on your phone, buying the extra capacity is well worth it.



As well as for smartphones, customers can purchase SIM Only deals for tablets. These use what are called Data SIMs (which cannot be used in mobile phones). The key feature here is data, with amounts stretching from around 2GB to as much as 20 or 30GB. If you need to use your tablet regularly on public wi-fi networks, these are the SIM deals to go for.

Is a SIM Only Deal the Right Option?



SIM Only deals are the right deal for people who value flexibility. If you are on the move all the time and only need to use your phone for short periods of time, a SIM Only deal can keep your costs low. You can agree to a contract lasting for a couple of weeks (which is useful if you are in the country for a short period of time), without needing to buy a phone. They are also handy for people who like to keep their old phones. If you are attached to an older device or you don’t want to create any extra e-waste, a SIM Only deal could be ideal.



SIM Only deals can also be cancelled if you aren’t happy with the quality of the service or if you find a better deal. There may be a small charge attached to cancellation, but it will be far less than for a lengthy contract.



Additionally, SIM Only deals do away with the need to add credit to your pay as you go phone. This can really help if you need your phone in emergencies, or you are the kind of person who often forgets to charge up their credits.



Then again, SIM Only deals aren’t necessarily for everyone. If you are the kind of person who always tries to have the most up to date smartphone, SIM Only deals won’t include free or discounted upgrades. When you need to upgrade, this could raise the cost of buying a new phone.



Choosing a SIM Only Deal Supplier



Choosing the right company to sign your SIM Only contract with is essential. Not all companies offer generous rates to new users, even if they provide cheap deals for existing customers, so beware of poor rates.



For example, BT Mobile offer some competitive SIM Only deals, with plenty of data, free minutes and unlimited SMS. However, these are only available to existing customers, and new users have to pay more. On the other hand, Virgin Media offer introductory packages that come with more free features.

Other companies provide special “shockproof” SIM Only deals. These packages are designed to prevent users accessing their mobile network if they go over a pre-agreed level of data usage or call minutes. If you find it hard to moderate your phone usage, and you are worried about spiralling monthly costs, a deal like this could be ideal. Some of the best are provided by Carphone Warehouse.



Things for Heavy Data Users to Think About



Nowadays, many mobile owners choose to use their devices to stream movies and TV shows while they are on the move, and there are special SIM Only packages for this kind of activity. Giffgaff and Three offer packages with large data allowances that are tailored to streaming fans. However, always remember that packages for heavy users come with a much higher price tag. Data allowance of 20 to 30GB can be three times as expensive as basic packages, so think twice before choosing the most comprehensive package – it could well be a waste of money.

How to Check Which Network Provides the Best Coverage?



When you come to decide, there are other things to consider beside minutes, SMS and data. For example, networks have differing signal strengths. To find out who offers the strongest signal near you, head to the websites of each provider and use their coverage checker tools to find out the local signal strength:



EE
O2
Three
Vodafone
Giffgaff
iD (Carphone Warehouse)
BT

These tools allow you to find out whether your favourite network has the capability to deliver super-fast 4G broadband to your phone. If they don’t, it’s definitely worth exploring other options, as poor signal strength can ruin the mobile experience.

Finding the Best SIM Only Packages



If you have decided to go for a SIM Only deal, finding the best possible deal is a challenge. The mobile market in the UK is congested, with a crowd of different companies offering what, on the face of it, seem like very similar products.



You can go to high street mobile shops such as Three, EE or O2, buy online from companies like BT or Virgin, or even purchase a SIM Only deal from supermarkets like Asda.

When is the Best Time to Sign a SIM Only Mobile Contract?



There’s no seasonal rhythm in the SIM Only industry. Unlike smartphones, when you can secure bargains on older phones as new models are announced, SIM Only deals can be purchased anytime. However, major companies tend to offer big reductions at certain times of year. 

Check out their deals at the start of the student year. Phone companies know that students are a big market, and often target them with special offers. Also, be sure to follow their deals around Black Friday and Cyber Monday in late November and the beginning of December. At the start of the Christmas season, mobile firms tend to try to sell as many contracts as possible, and big savings are possible. The same applies to New Year sales, so keep your eyes peeled after Christmas too.



Saving Money by Checking out the SIM Only Packages at HotUKDeals



The best way to find a good deal is to use price comparison websites like uSwitch or Cable.co.uk to find out what your requirements are. You can plug in the number of minutes you require, your expected data usage, how many texts you may need, and the length of contract you’d like. These sites will then provide a list of suppliers with packages meeting your needs.



After that, head to HotUKDeals to find out whether these companies are currently running any promotions on their SIM Only deals. Prices quoted on online comparison sites or the company’s own sites will not always highlight coupons or money off deals, so keep track of any discounts via HotUKDeals to ensure that you don’t waste money on your new SIM Only.
