SIM only contracts

If you already have a mobile phone that you like, consider a SIM only plan

What is SIM only?

A SIM only plan is exactly what it says on the tin: a plan that’s just for your SIM card. Rather than getting a new phone included in your plan, you get a new SIM with all your data, minutes and texts on it. Just pop this into your phone and you’re good to go!

Why choose SIM only?

The choice really comes down to whether you want a new phone or not. If you’ve already got a phone you love and just want a better deal on your minutes, texts and data, then SIM only could be for you. SIM only plans offer similar amounts of minutes, texts and data to phone plans – plus you can use your allowances in the EU. The right SIM only plan will depend on what your priorities are, but if you know how you use your phone, and you don’t want to pay for a new phone, a SIM only plan is for you.

Can I keep my phone number with SIM only?

Yes, you can retain your old phone number if you are taking out a sim only contract (even if you are changing to an entirely new network). To keep your old number you would need to contact your old mobile phone network and ask them for the PAC (Port Authorisation Code) number. Once you have this, you need to contact your new provider and give them the PAC code within 30 days. Your mobile phone number will then be transferred onto the new network and you can use it via your sim only contract.

How long is a SIM only contract?

A SIM only contract is not like a normal phone contract which can be from 12 months to as long as 24 months, as they are only 30 day rolling contracts. This means if you want to change to another deal you would only need to give a months’ notice on your contract and then you would be able to finish your SIM only contract with no penalties.
