SIM Card Only
As well as regular pay as you go and monthly tariff deals, there are also sim card only deals available in the UK mobile market. Monthly tariff deals often include a mobile for free while pay as you go can require a customer to buy a phone, but sim card only deals allow the purchase of just the sim card and associated contract. This then allows customers to select a phone to buy at their leisure, or to use a phone that they already own when they do not feel the need to replace it.
Sim card only deals may feature the following benefits:
- The ability to keep an old handset.
- Switch sim cards in an existing handset between work and home numbers.
- Switch sim cards to take advantage of tariffs dependent on the time of day.
- Switch sim cards to change to foreign networks when travelling.
