We Compare the Best UK SIM Only Deals with Internet Inclusive

If you already own a handset that you love and you are used to and you simply do not want to have a new one, then getting a SIM only deal might be the perfect option for you. SIM only tariffs are a good choice for those who are looking for low cost packages with lots of minutes and texts inclusive and/or generous data allowances. Generally speaking, SIM only deals can be up to £20 a month cheaper, of course, if you choose wisely. Or in other words, one can save up to £240 a year on a good SIM only plan.

Who Are SIM Only Deals Ideal For?

» People who purchased a mobile phone SIM-free;

» People who purchased a mobile phone on auction websites, such as eBay;

» People who already own a mobile phone which came with a previous contract;

» People who were given a mobile phone from family or a friend.

Some people prefer this type of plan over a regular contract mobile plan because of the low monthly costs. You have a choice to choose between many different low tariff rates as per the requirement. You can also choose the plan that offers free and incentive messages, and much more. Comparison rates can be found by going online, and finding mobile operators near you. You will then be able to find the plan and rate that best fits your requirements. You have to keep certain things in mind when you are searching and comparing, and already have somewhat of an idea of what you are looking for.

Consider Your Budget

SFor those who want to keep their mobile phone costs low, there are SIM only plans out there starting from as low as £7 a month. You can get a cheap smartphone SIM only deal on Orange - with their Dolphin plan you buy 150 minutes, 500 texts and 250MB internet for £7 a month. If you use Internet on your phone occasionally (sending a few emails and browsing a few pages a month), then 250MB may be well enough for you.


Deals at the £10/month price level are available for those who use Internet on their smartphone on a regular basis. Currently a bestseller on the market is Giff Gaff's £10 goodybag which includes 250UK minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited web - that's what we call a good deal!

At the £15 a month price point, Three are offering a top Pay-As-You-Go deal with 3000 texts and 300 minutes plus all-you-can-eat data for just £15. It gives you 300 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data to use within 30 days.

Is You Phone Unlocked?

Remember that if you're switching networks, check whether your handset is unlocked first. If it came with a previous contract, it may be locked to that network. Most locked mobile phones can be easily unlocked in exchange for a small fee. Check with your network operator.

This is definitely the best type of deal that you can receive on the mobile market. People considering sim only plans should really base their decision off of the many advantages that they come with.
