Don't Want to Pay For a SIM Card? - Here's How to Get One Free!

Mobile operators such as T-Mobile, O2, Orange, and Virgin have a lot of incentives that come with their free SIM cards to their Pay-As-You-Go customers. These incentives can range from as much as 1000 free texts, low and comparison rates for international calls, and discounted call rates to UK calls including landlines. You can even get free texts to some specific networks and some offer free Airtime also. Every of these networks have different concessions for their pay as you go subscribers. All you need to do is order a free SIM card and pop it into any unlocked handset. But how do you choose which one?

Giff Gaff

Giff Gaff is probably the best choice for high users. Their bundles are as good as some Pay Monthly contracts. To order a free SIM card, simply go to giffgaff.com, fill in the form and once it arrives, activate it and top-up online. Once you've topped-up, pop your SIM into an unlocked handset.

If you follow these steps, you will receive a new SIM card (that fits both Micro SIM & standard SIM) with zero credit. However, if you order a SIM via an existing member or order further SIM cards to come to your own registered address to hand out, then it will come with £5 free credit.

Just a quick example, a £5 GoodyBag deal offers unlimited texts each month, or the £5 Hokey Cokey deal offers 60 minutes and 300 texts. All free Giff Gaff SIM cards offer free calls and texts to other Giff Gaff users. For only £10 a month you can get 250 UK minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited web.

Three
