Everything you need to know about our SIM Only deals

There are all sorts of reasons why our SIM Only deals are worth thinking about. But whether you’re looking to save money, boost your data allowance or just avoid shelling out for a new phone, you may well have some questions you’d like to ask.

How do SIM Only contracts work?

When you shop for a new mobile, it’s important to know what’s being charged upfront and what you’ll need to pay each month. Most networks will try to tempt you in with either a ‘free’ phone or ‘no upfront’ cost, but the truth is that’s not really what you’re getting.

Take a second look and you’ll notice contracts with lower (or no) upfront charges are usually more expensive per month. Why? Well, the cost of the phone is bundled in with the cost of the contract. That’s where SIM Only plans are different, because you only pay for the calls, texts and data you use each month. We've put together a handy guide about the benefits of SIM only

What kind of SIM Only deals do Talkmobile offer?

SIM card sizes

To keep things simple, we offer just four plans which start at just £5 per month. All you need to do is pick one based on how much you want to spend and how much data you'll need – all our Talker plans come with unlimited UK minutes and texts. And they are all 30 day rolling contracts, so you’re never tied into a long term commitment.

With unlimited UK minutes all of our SIM Only plans are ideal for those who love to talk. They’ve got generous data too so are perfect for those who like to browse the web, check in on social media and send some instant messages. But if you tend to stream music or video when you’re out and about, you may be more suited to one of our larger ones. Just remember to keep in mind that it's always handy to have some extra headroom on your data in case you run out.

 

 

 


 

Sounds good. What’s the catch?

No catch. At Talkmobile, our SIM Only contracts are designed to be as simple as they are affordable. Just pick the deal that’s right for you and we’ll send your SIM out in the post.

If you’re transferring from another network and want to keep your number, let us know your PAC or STAC code (which your old network will give you) and we’ll have you set up within 48 hours.

And you needn’t worry about the kind of signal you’ll get for this price, as we use the Vodafone network, which covers 99.7% of the UK population. And if you’d like to see what coverage is like in your area, take a look at our signal checker.
