I was on Virgin Media (O2) 100GB for £8/month for the last 5 months which has come to an end.

looking at my usage I barely use 30-40GB max/month. I found this deal posted by @MrSwitch last year which seems to be still active. I have just bought this so that I can port in and 6 months sorted.

Runs also run on 02, not that bad in my area. So, check the service in your area before purchasing it.

At the end of the 6th month, you just need to TURN OFF autorenewal by navigating to Lyca Login then ACCOUNT MANAGER - "Auto Renew plan" then just as shown below.

  • Lyca Mobile 30-day SIM card for only £4.50 per month for the first 6 months, £13.99 thereafter
  • Unlimited National Mins and SMS

Customer may only activate a second plan if is priced higher than the currently active plan.

Our roaming services are intended for Lycamobile customers who visit EU Countries for short periods, for example a holiday or short trip. Our roaming Fair Usage Policy is designed to prevent misuse of our EU Countries roaming products and service.

To use our EU Countries roaming services you must first activate your SIM in your home country (and have purchased a Lycamobile product that includes EU Countries roaming services).

Your calls to other Lycamobile numbers are free at home (minimum top-up applies), but when you roam within EU Countries they will be charged (or deducted from your plan allowance) as standard calls.

    Re Lyca eSIM, you can't actually get a 3rd party deal with an eSIM, a physical SIM seems to be the default and only option.

    I was able to order a free Pay As You Go eSim with no top up required last month, the eSIM was instantlyemailed to me with a QR code , I then logged onto the online accout to "SIM Swap" from the Physical SIM to eSIM with the eSIM PUK code and ICCID details provided in the email.


    However, just checked Lyca's website and it seems you can no longer order free PAYG eSIM (with or without credit) anymore, only if you get a package!

    Most importantly, unfortunately (or luckily), I made the mistake of doing the SIM Swap from physical to eSIM first before porting my number in... When I try to fill in the porting request, the eSIM's SIM number (ICCID) is unrecgonised and an error code came up on the porting page.

    It maybe that if one ports the number to the physical SIM first, then do the SIM Swap to eSIM afterwards then it will be alright, or not... Can't be bothered to try now that you can't order free PAYG eSIM anymore.

    Nice find, been using Lyca for nearly 1 year
    Might have to switch to this better deal
    I'm amazed I actually get good 5G speeds on Lyca when not many others allow 5G in my area even after advertising 5G for years

    how do i switch to this deal if i am already a customer?

    If Lyca mobiles live chat as a potential new customer is anything to go by I can only guess how poor the service is once they have your money.

    four times today I’ve asked live chat the same question around eu roaming fair usage policy as it’s missing from the terms of this offer and every time I’ve been cut off by them as they clearly don’t know

    Hi, is there a data cap while EU roaming? Can't see anything in their T&Cs. Thanks
    jase.2's avatar
    Not sure if you got an answer to this? 

    I thought Lyca had really low fair usuals on roaming but can’t see anything here but wanted to be sure before ordering it

    Stay away from Lyca! horrible service and non-existent CS.
    A port in of my old running phone number has gone terribly wrong with them - for over a month I can`t use it. I think it is gone for ever now.
    DON`T use LYCA!
    You have been warned!

    Never had such issues that made me contact CS but got a response on chat promptly.
    I had used it twice in the past for a few months, porting in and out and never had any issues.
    But thanks for the warning I will come up with comments if I ever have any problem in future as I went through this plan today.

    this weekend they seem to have had a massive outage

    How do you get the esim? The form for payment linked above wants the physical address for a physical sim to be sent to. Nowhere even to enter your PAC to keep your number. Thanks.
