Got this deal for my son, Quidco showing as tracked £30.08 & refer a friend status as pending so all looks good! Refer a friend states "Your Amazon.co.uk Gift Card will be sent out once we’ve received and approved your friend’s order and they've paid their first bill."
So hopefully a cracking deal at £28 for the year !

How do you get the refer a friend through quidco?
Not a great deal compared to others here but if you'd prefer an O2 sim they have brought back their 10gb for £18 deal again. Unlimited texts and minutes. Some Quidco to be had too.

I'm after a sim only deal (PAYG) with as much data as possible that I can use in my phone while in Spain next month.
Anyone got an idea which would be the best deal for me atm?

Thanks.

Anyway to get the 8GB EE deal?
You can try mobilephonesdirect if you're ok with cashback redemption. Works out £13.99/mo after cashback for 8GB.http://www.mobilephonesdirect.co.uk/basket/add/sim_only/pay-monthly-ee-micro/ee-4g-27-99-unlimited-12/free-delivery/cashback-by-redemption
I have 4GB EE plan from them just about to end, you just send your statement on the online form and they send money back to the bank account. No messing with cheques and very easy.
Can I port my current number or would that cause problems
Who are you with right now? If EE then you need to get a PAYG SIM from another carrier and transfer number there and then back to EE on the new SIM.
Three is the easiest to do this with since you don't need to top up
I'm with talkmobile (Vodafone network)
Yeah no issues then. Sign up to mobile phones direct and wait for you to get your sim and new number. Get your PAC code from Talkmobile and then pass it onto EE once you've got your SIM from them.
OK seem simple enough never done this before tho. do you just get statements from EE site then fill out the form on MPD site then wait for money?

Yup just set a reminder on the months you need to submit it on (4, 6, 8, 10 ,12 i think)

I left BT a couple of weeks ago due to poor data signal - i would only get gprs at work most of the time, sometimes 3g but it was awfully slow ... never used to have any problems, it seems to have been the last 3 or so months... I was considering taking out that 3 deal, but i admit i am tempted to come back and put up with the speeds lol
​exactly the same experience.
ive decided to go for the deal, for the money i cant beat it - after checking out coverage for 3, that one would be a no-go anyway.
500min only? No way I am going for this.

Maybe this can be added to the SIM only thread too. Similar deal from the ID page with 5000 mins but for £15. This seems to be a Uswitch exclusive.

Don't know what phone you have , but you could reset network settings - it worked for me ( with three network) .

I find ID ok except they make you port out and back on again to take advantage of a new c deal, so I was stuck on 1GB data for £10 per month when they upped the offer to 2GB. They also don't have roaming agreements with a few countries to when I visited China last month I had to get a temporary SIM even just to send text messages.

I'm moving to the Talkmobile 12 month 15GB deal with TCB cash back it costs me ~£11 per month.

I have to agree. Unfortunately, clever marketing by Apple has led to its customers being prepared to spend untold amounts on their products.

How much?????!!!!
Do people REALLY pay this much for a phone contract? Absolutely complete & utter bonkers!
Phone from apple is £599 that leaves £500 for the sim only, £500 split in half for the 2 years is £250, £250 split into 12 months is £20 a month so £24 for the phone and £20 for the sim = £44, That is cheaper then buying the phone cash and putting a sim only in it even thought contracts are more expensive. Thank You;)

Apple ? Mmmm. I love the way they charge V.A.T. and then pay no blooming tax. oO
I'm all for companies avoiding tax - it means the products are a bit cheaper than they would be!

So Apple charge 580% markup instead of 600%? Okay.
plus £99-£105 cashback maybe? Last week it was £123

Works out at £15.99 a month for calls and data if you factor in the £600 phone itself which I was preparing to buy outright anyway

I was being a bit thick! I've realised... it's not three SIM cards each with 4GB = 12GB, It's one SIM card with 12GB over a 12 month term. #stupid
OK. So the sims turned up in the post today.

I will use this in my unlocked Nexus 6 and report back on whether it works... or not. If the latter I'd welcome recommendations on a small Wi-fi dongle.

OP .. "3 PAYG 4G Trio Data SIM Pack Preloaded with 12GB of Data £20.85 with 5% discount code @ MYMEMORY"

It's showing up as £22.75 for me AFTER the 5% discount code of 'VUB5' is applied?.

Is this correct? (and your Deal needs to be expired?, as it's now gone up).

Was there an error in the info you originally supplied, etc?.

Or is there something else that I'm missing?, thanx.

I only wish that these 3 Data SIM Cards could be used in a normal Phone? (eg. as normal Pay & Go SIM, with up to 1 Year/12GB's worth of Data attached to it as standard!).
As opposed to that of ONLY a Data SIM Card (which can only Mi-Fi out your 1 Year/12GB's worth of Internet Data, and that's it ..... ) :-(
I'd have luvvvvvvv'ed to have rather had this in my Phone instead?.
With the Mi-Fi 'options' as secondary, rather than mandatory only?, lol.
Ahhhhhhhhhhh well. :-)
They can work in a mobile phone and I do just that.
But you'll have to buy a dual sim phone, I use a Talkmobile sim in slot 1 that gives calls at 10p per hour and all my data is from sim slot 2 that contains a 3 data sim.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!, thanx for that. :-)

Yes, I have a Dual-SIM Phone already (but wouldn't mind another Dual-SIM Phone too, any recommendations?, lol), so this will work perfectly then in my existing Dual-SIM Phone, thanx. :-)

Ps.
What TalkMobile SIM at only 10p per 1 hour are you rocking please? (as I've had a few TalkMobile Contract SIM's in the last few years, but NEVER heard of your one too mind?, or am I missing something?, hehehe). :-)
I love this type of Brexit rubbish :{

The EU is a Free Trade Area and Customs Union.
The EEA is a Free Trade Area not Customs Union e.g. Norway
Switzerland is a partial member of the FTA but neither the EEA nor EU Customs Union.
You can be part of the EU Customs Union alone but not the FTA e.g. Turkey.

A swivel eyed Brexit loon was saying yesterday you have exit the EU Customs Union to control migration.

Just a warning it seems to come from Switzerland and took a couple of weeks to arrive.
On mine they put a customs value of £11.85, which was a blatant lie to avoid paying tax.
I know cheaper prices sound good, but I'd quite like to keep the NHS...
Um... There are no custom charges in the EEA as far as I know. We are in the single market.
Switzerland is neither an EU nor EEA member.
It is, however, part of the single market.
Customs charges apply.
I stand corrected about Switzerland being in the EEA. They are not but they are part of EFTA and are also part of the single market which we are in. Therefore there should surely be no tax to pay. It would be different if they just had access to it but we are both actually in it. The whole point of the single market is that there are no tarriff, taxes or quotas on trade.
You would think so, and so do probably half the leave voters....however, the Single Market is a way to harmonise rules and regulations as opposed to taxes and tarriffs. The last two are fiscal measures which apply to EU and non EU and Switzerland is a non EU country hence import duty and VAT are payable.

Anyone get a deal more than 4gb,
Best I could get trying to transfer from PAYG to a 12 month contract was 2GB unlimited minutes and texts for £14.99. It included some kind of european calling plan I was told. If you have EE broadband you get an extra 5GB data allowance, which could be good for some of the cheaper plans. At this price I'm not sure why anyone would go with this rather than the Three offer.
Thanks OP for this post. I spoke to the EE retention team yesterday night (just opted for the PAC code, and got redirected to the retention team directly), who happily gave me this offer. Me and my wife were with orange (outside the contract), and now will be given new SIMs to move to EE network.
C141RE
Thank you to all thanked me and I'm pleased that I've helped a few of you out on here.
I don't know why people have voted this cold because I thought it was a brilliant deal.
It is a brilliant deal and like you I don't know why people voted cold maybe because it is a retention only and doesn't apply to them in which case why vote at all?

bigtam1
Anyone know how i can get them to offer me this?
I phoned up asked to be put through to the retention team, said I had seen Three are offering unlimited texts and calls plus 4gb of data and I wanted to see if they would match it. In my case they put me through to another team and they simply said they would do it then and there. I was out of my 12 month contract. If they say no I would hang up and try again?

tried 3 times over the past 3 days, they will not offer me anything but 2gb for £9.99. They even asked for mobile numbers of people getting the deal to which i thought was very weird!

location, location, location!
i was on "the one plan" ayce data+2000'+5000texts; and still, i left 3 for vodafone's 25Gb at £25; why? because of 30% discount for nhs staff, for roaming 4Gb at 4G speed etc; I know, with 3 i had unlimited data! unlimited abroad at no speed is nothing!!! Everywhere I went on holiday and 3 had "feel at home" internet speed was not enough to navigate google maps! where my mates had Vodafone red with 4Gb of roaming data, and they were streaming at 4G!!!
Ok, in London, 3 is good, but not as good as ee (dual sim phone, so i have tested them); but ee is expensive, and so is o2. But do you all live in central London?
I know vodafone is bad, at my place is still faster speed testing than 3; i will let you know if it's worse than 3
It is all about what suits you, wait for Christmas offers if you can afford, but cancellation deals? forget it! 3 offered me £20/month for 30Gb data+minutes+texts! how silly is that? i was on £25/month for ayce data plus zillions of minutes and texts!!
Be patient and rational, and don't expect too much (manage your own expectations) and see what's best for you, not what others say it's best for you. you can almost see none of them is offering the same thing: speed or frequency, data or roaming, etc, is almost like they (network suppliers) talked between them, not to step on each others toes. Or not to compete with each other. Could that be true? Surely not!
The only good thing about this deal is that is 12 months only! Better still, get a pay as you go, test it for a month, see how it goes, and then sign your next network 12 months life away.
COOOLD!
Three services in my area is terrible (northeast london) when cancelling at the end of a 24 months contract they offered an amazing deal and they said the courage in my area will be sorted in "next couple of days" now been 2 months and the network is still crap!

Check if your employer is part of the Vodafone Advantage scheme before getting this.
£25/mo reduces to £17.50 a month for 25gb of data, unlimited mins/text, with roaming (data outside the eu with 3 is so slow in my experience anyway), and Spotify for 12 months.
But then you're stuck on the UK's worst network.


​Moat of the above, thoigh speed wasn't too bad when there was coverage. Appalling customer service though, and that to me is worth using another company, even if it means a massive increase of a few £s per month at most.
looks good to me im tempted to sack EE for this. I know EE were offering unlim mins and text and 25gb for £20 a while ago but this does look better

Funny how this is cold but the 8gb for the same amount is hot. Mmmmmmm

Sky sports mobile think it is 1 & 2 didnt ask as was only interested in spotify. I know what you mean about voda but if it gives me what i need and cheap ill ignore them

Thinking of getting this would I have problems porting number from talkmobile
Has anyone tried to add the Vodafone Advantage scheme to one of these cashback sim deals? Just wondering what effect this would have on cashback
​I ported one number on one SIM perfectly OK. The other number on the other SIM STILL hasn't happened, despite it being handled by the "Resolution Team" when I called to make a formal complaint last week. Both accounts are showing the same overcharging amount but, to be honest, I don't believe anything Vodafone say or show me any more...

Beware - e2save seem to be having difficulties with their Vodafone contracts. I took out a couple of the £19.55 15GB ones two weeks ago, but I'm being charged £23.00 per month. e2save have assured me that it is a "known problem", it will be corrected and the overcharging refunded, but I see no sign of that happening so far...

Also, Vodafone customer services have to be tried to be believed! I've spent 10 days trying to get my number ported with my PAC. Still hasn't happened after four attempts with "Customer Services". Fifth time lucky tomorrow....


​have you ported a number across? I had loads of problems with mine which seems to be because I ported a number in. e2save were sending Vodafone a list of affected numbers including mine, but as I'd changed my number the process didn't work.

Looks like decent offer. Contract ends this month, so I think I'll go with the 20gb data for £3/m more. Cheers OP.


I ended up going for that. Represents better value
Does anyone know if these are counted as "Red" plans for the purposes of data sharing between contracts?

Signed up yesterday morning. Received today.
Put in Sim card, already activated.
At my home, I found this sim card has the best signal. I think talk mobile use Vodafone signals.
3 network is rubbish at my address. EE is a lot better. Talk mobile is the best with full signal or almost full signals all the time.
I am impressed so far.
I have used talk mobile before and had no problem with cashback.
I have not used mobilephonedirect before.
Thanks, OP. I am considering to switch to talk mobile for myself. The one I just received was for my wife.
Likewise, mine arrived today and all is working well, my buddy has said that there has been no problem with the cashback and it only takes him a few minutes to do it.
I have been with Virgin and lousy signal, and so is 3's and O2, but the Vodafone/TalkMobile signal is great.

Shocking reception (not as advertised)
I admit it's not that great when compared to some other networks but it always works for me in the cities where it matters. Their 4G coverage is quite strong now.
Shocking reception (not as advertised)
I think it's just because I don't have much of a reputation so it didn't go high. I saw the deal on here that was dead high as well but then it's cheaper from E2 Save who is the same company anyway so it's not a bad deal. Vodafone really isn't the best network but you're not going to get £9 for the same deal from anyone else and they're not *that* bad because I have a signal pretty much everywhere but not motorways
Sorry to belabour the point, but I just got my £15 quidco tracked. So another £1pm cheaper. If you can stand Voda ( I can) then this looks great. I also noticed a similar deal via mobiles.co.uk with a higher price but more heat. Don't understand that and am a bit worried I'm missing something...
Crikey this has to be the best SIMO deal ever, I am gobsmacked. Of course, Voda has slipped from being the premier network 20 years ago to pretty cruddy but I have been with them for those 20 years and they can still assemble a good deal to keep me suckered. Just did a data speedtest for voda in my kitchen and it's pretty good. So, this SIM will be my "backup" for when the broadband stops working (which it does a lot - I can't get broadband through the phone line, have to hitch a ride on a microwave link to the next village, sounds **** and it is but hey BT can't be @r5ed to get broadband to me and I live 3 miles from the M25! rant over)

My order, placed on Wed 21st failed. I have no idea why idea why but I'm rather unimpressed since I got the order completed screen but no emails. I wanted the £40 Amazon gift card not a £20 iTunes one. Perhaps I'd be better off waiting for another (better) deal from BT or a competitor.

The offer continues with Quidco but the Amazon voucher option has gone and the value of the iTunes card has dropped from £40 to £20.

Hence the deal alone on price is superhot, but due to the worst customer service I've ever had - cold !
Ok so I totally agree that Vodafone has consistently got my bill wrong every month for 6 months and that their customer service is the most atrocious I've ever experienced in my life compared to EE and three and o2, but hey, my signal has always been good for me and I'm paying £12pm for 20gb after cash back. Even though I have to call them every month for 30 mins at a time to go through the guy, then his supervisor to query every item they put on to make it go over £20 at their end, I haven't lost a battle with them yet !

Would I stay with vodaphone in 6 months time? I think I might give EE another go.

You will be disappointed with the mobile data speeds, and worst cs ever, they overcharged me twice, after 50 odd calls and reporting them to the ombudsman they finally gave me my money back, 4 months later. Now I have moved to ee and have to say the mobile data coverage is more than adequate, it's even faster than my home fiber when it's on double speed :D


Exactly the same with me, got bills 3 months in a row of over £100 on a 30 pm contract, after talking to them 100 times charges were removed but causes so many problems, their customer service team are very incompetent; i took the first opportunity to leave them when they increased their prices above the rate of inflation, it was on a free but i made sure to check with CS and kept transcripts, not even a week later after cancelling i got a huge £300 bill and was being wrongly followed up because someone put my cancellation through wrongly, after another 15 calls its finally over but i have an ongoing case with ombudsman and have now moved to o2


Absolutely disgusting company, liars and con artists. I am so happy I am not with Vodafone anymore.

Don't do it to yourselves, I was one of the lucky ones that got away from Vodafone. Their deals are cheap for a reason, by far the worst company I have ever dealt with. They are modern day scam artists who will rip you off... if you experience any problems with their network good luck in getting it sorted.... if you still take the deal then it's your funeral. Much better off staying away, you have been warned.

How is this so? I managed to have my cancelled after a five minute call where I explained the service was unusable. Gave me the pac code straight away. I've since bought a new hand set and the line is fine.


You were lucky then and must of been within your 30 days of cooling off period or towards the end of your contract. I have never had to deal with such a bunch of tyrants, liars and con artists. Never again would I ever put any business their way. If anybody does then good luck, as they are going to need it.

I went from the one plan on three to Vodafone, this is good value for money with spotify or now tv to boot.

Downside was signal was shocking in Cornwall, limited to towns like Newquay etc. I had to hunt out wifi continously.


I agree, I also live in Newquay. Vodafone is the worst network and company I have ever come across. Their customer service is appalling, luckily I managed to get away from them. Steer well clear, don't get sucked in to their bogus deals. They will only end up ripping you off later down the line!!!!! You have been warned!!!

After 8 months of overcharging and horrific customer service, you couldn't pay me £9 a month to stay with them. Still within contract and they've Ballsed up so much I'm paying £15 a month for the exact allowances as above instead of the £42 I signed up with. Fannies the lot of them!!
I've always phoned up to cancel and ask for my PAC code. Retentions have kept me there for a good 8 years. Never had an issue with anything except their website login stuff that is a little too extra secure(asking for sms pin is annoying)

Yep. Screwed both me and the wife. Promised a retention at previous years price of £7 per month. Charged us both £10.50. Despite numerous calls, and one to a supposed manager that lasted 55 minutes, I was continually lied to. Lost the will to live eventually and gave up. We will never be back to Vodafone once our contracts are up in February. Bunch of lying ****. I never tire of boring people with this story. Hope the bustards lose loads of customers.

You can't tether with this so the three deal for £9 and 4gb of data is better and a 100 more mins


You can't tether with contract you are talking about.
I got the excellent p8 deal last year on Id, they were a great network, I got better reception than my girlfriend's O2. This year I got the p9 vodafone deal, unlocked it and I am on this exact contract now.
Don't believe all the BS by the haters, ID offer an excellent service and app is great, I also tether all the time and I've never been charged extra.
The only thing I don't like is that if you want to switch contracts within ID and take your old number, you have to leave, transfer it to a different network and then come back, which is a bit of a pain, but once it's done it's done until the next time you want to switch deals, which isn't very often for me.
No problems on my wife's phone, number port and coverage great after 6 months.
Stay away from them if you need to port your number, I have just been through it and it took them 5 days to finally sort it!!!! It's the first time I have had any problem porting my number. Their support is also terrible.

Im with Vodafone now - and I despise them. They screwed me over twice and I never get signal in big buildings (which I most work in).

Tried 3 different phones (because they told me it was my phone) and checked and confirmed im in "4G Indoor and Outdoor" area.

Vodafone came 4th in the coverage watchdog thing a month or so ago - and EE won it, so im going with EE in November when im able to leave.

Some phones will require you to put in your own APN SETTINGS for your 3G to work with these

Ok, for those of you who don't know, EE is the sister company for LIFE who offered them a helping hand when they started off a few months ago. They initially used the EE network for calls and data, and over the past few months have negotiated less than 50% EE brandwidth with worsening loss of speed and access to EEs own network.

So this means that LIFE are now expanding their network and transmitters in order to maintain connectivity and service levels. Overall parity with EE will be less than 25% before the end of 2016. This all results in poor speed and call quality for LIFE customers.

And all this is likely to get worse before it gets better, as I cannot see LIFE having enough maker share or profits in order to develop their own network.

I'll get my coat...


​not true, as the company owned by EE.

Just switched from Virgin after they told me they were removing the loyalty discount I had on my previous tariff. I gave them the chance to match this deal but they couldn't come close. the switch happend smoothly, I called life as soon as the SIM was activated (which was 2 days after their delivery notification email), gave them my PAC from Virgin and the switch was complete by the next day. Reception and internet seem ok, certainly no worse than what I had with Virgin. Still early days to know whether some of the issues others have reported will affect me but no problems so far and frineldy customer service. All ok for now.

Does anyone know if you can use the data to use as a hotspot for pc
Found it, thanks.

Interested in that offer especially due to NOW TV Entertainment subscription.
With regards to that NOW TV Entertainment - How does that compare to TV delivered by cable?
I'm about to cancel Virgin TiVo (currently "L" package") as my introductory offer expires next month.
I understand I will also need to buy NowTV box, which is fine, as TiVO seams to work horribly slow, hence hardly ever used.
I moved from ID Mobile (three) around week ago, and I'm very happy with Vodafone.
I always had problems with signal in London so that's the reason why I left ID Mobile. If you are using Spotify you will get one year of free premium account (£10) which will lower the price of this plan to just £3 for 25GB data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB roaming data!
This is an amazing deal.

All very well, but three don't give you unlimited wifi to use on a laptop or tablet all over the country where someone nearby has got home broadband - that's the big bonus for me with BT, as I don't have to pay for business internet by using the wifi :D

and nobody gave a toss about customer service
shocking to know that this is cold

few months ago when the 20gb deal was posted it went over 1000 degrees
Good price.. But as everyone knows.. Shocking customer service.. Keep getting charged 30quid when it should be 20...5 months now and still haven't grasped that Spotify.... Is free!
seems a good deal. people obviously don't like Vodafone
It's a choice of NowTV, Spotify or SKY not all three, would have been worth taking just to have those subs! Great deal though, still got a year on my sub though

Cheers, so maybe just something to do every now and again when you can be bothered or there is a particularly good deal! I know cashback is less, but does Quidco cashback need you to send/upload bills? In other words is Quidco sim only cashback less hassle, but less cashback?
moogaloo
Am interested in some of those vodafone sim only deals with cashback. I am currently with three so can transfer my number. So after 12 months do I need to move away from vodafone in order to get another good cashback deal and keep my phone number? Need to work out the hassle versus savings ratio if I am gonna become a sim only cashbacker :-)
Yes, or you can transfer to a non Vodafone pay as you go, then transfer back to Vodafone.

can anyone comment on if Vodafone themselves would price match it?

I do this every year or two (depending on my contract at the time), with either mobiles.co.uk or e2save. I have never ever been able to convince a mobile network retention team to price match any retailer offering cashback (ie. the price after cashback) as the cashback is usually coming out of the retailers profit.

Good luck if you do, and do let us know if you're lucky.

Me and wife had a contract with Vodafone once through carphone warehouse. I sent the bills in a week early and claim was rejected. Then I cancelled the contracts with them after the first 12 months so they cancelled mine and left my wife's running. Still got a bad credit rating to this day because of them. Called, e-mailed and wrote but no luck. Cashback deals no more

Did you check the T&C's before cancelling?

Whilst the refusal to pay out the cashback was CPW, the bad credit is nothing to do with them. The credit is provided by the mobile network (not the retailer who sold it to you).

isn't it the £20 tariff?
Guys , this is NOT £37per month Tariff

It's £22.20 tariff.

The actual monthly amount is £22.20, and reduction to £10.50 AFTER CASH BACK!
Mine had the same problem with discount not being applied. All you hav to do is phone mobiles.co.uk and they will send vodafone an email to sort it out and then show vodafone the purchase email for proof. They said there was an error. Mine is fully sorted and vodafone even refunded the overcharges
Probably a thread still live from a month ago when I took this out.

Be aware a few people have reported problems with being billed £37 quid a month instead of the 40% reduction to £22.20 (before cashback) when ordering through Mobiles and E2Save.

My bills have been ok so far but just a warning.

This may have the free entertainment package as well. Free Spotify for me has been great.

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.
