SIM ONLY CONTRACTS





In the UK the mobile network providers now have a range of SIM only plans, that give you the freedom to choose the SIM card from your chosen network with the tariff that bests suits your usage. This gives you the complete liberty to choose the telecommunications provider of your choice using it on the handset you already own.

With SIM only contracts the current tariffs available give you more texts, more minutes and data as compared to a mobile contract with a handset. In addition extra add-ons are also available from certain networks when you sign-up, which can be changed on a monthly basis. These include SIM only contracts with internet, unlimited landline calls or calling abroad, amongst the many options.

It is recommended to use unlocked mobile phones and preferably a 3G handset with SIM only deals as you can use the phone with different carriers. Each providers SIM card only works with a locked handset to that network unless the mobile is unlocked. If the phone is locked before switching networks you can ask the carrier to unlock it for you or to provide you with an unlock code, so that you can start using the SIM only contract successfully.

The SIM only contracts start from as little as £5. Contracts are typically either on a 12 month or a 30 day rolling contract. With the one month contract you can cancel with a month notice giving you freedom from termination fee payments when you end your contract early, as with mobile contracts. These pay monthly sim only contracts are getting more and more popular with UK mobile subscribers. We compare the best SIM only deals in 2013 from UK network operators and you can find some the current best sim only tariffs below.

Overall the greatest advantage is the short contract length and the low cost that gives you more for you money. Then it’s just simply a matter of swapping the SIM card in your handset.
