Best solution if you live in the UK = SIM Only 

SIM Only is a great way of changing tariffs without the expense of buying a new phone. Here is a quick guide to help you decide if SIM only is right for you.

Why choose SIM only?

  • Excellent value: SIM only deals provide the best rates for minutes, texts and data . Why? Because the networks are not providing you with the added handset and can pass on the savings to you!
  • No long term commitment: If you decided you wanted to change to a different minutes/ text package, or even if you wanted to cancel altogether, it’s easy to do so with SIM only deals. All it takes is for you to give 30 days notice, which is the shortest contract deal available – you won’t be tied down longer than you need to.
  • Easy to apply for: If you’ve got a less than perfect credit score, then applying for a SIM only contract is a lot easier than applying for a standard contract phone (though this depends on each individual application).
  • Keep your existing phone and number: If you want to save yourself the effort of letting all your friends and family know you’ve changed your number then a SIM only deal can make it simple just keep your old phone and your old number for a smooth transition!
