The One plan from

promoted by us on the fact its one of the most feature

rolling contract is now £18. Way to go

June 23rd 2013
If you're a Galaxy SIII or S4 user
you're going to need a smaller sim than normal, same
goes for any Apple iPhone, where a nano sim is the you
need. The only network which doesn't offer smaller sim
cards is Virgin Mobile - but don't fear, buy yourself a
cutter or if you're handy with a pair of scissors then
you can cut it down as you need. Go sim only today and

|The UK has
one of the most competitive mobile phone markets in the
world, and despite the recent global downturn its
showing itself to be offering more for less at a time
when the consumer is becoming as
demanding as ever. In the UK most buyers go for deals
where a free mobile phone is included with the contract,
although this is one of the most expensive ways of
owning a mobile phone given that you could be paying for
it for 12, 18 or even 24 months. The networks use this
contract term to claw back the price of the handset as
well as some profit for the services offered to the
buyer. As a result the contracts with a mobile phone are
more expensive and more restrictive than sim only
offerings on the market today.
already have a mobile phone which you are happy with and
you are at the end of the contract then the best option
is to switch to a sim only deal which will allow you to
get more minutes, text and data than a contract with a
phone. The terms are much more friendly too, with 30 day
rolling contracts with only 30 days notice required to
cancel or if you are willing then you could get even
more if you commit to a sim only deal for a 12
number is no problem too, when you sign up for one of
the deals listed here at The Sim Only Shop then you will
have the option of transferring your current number to
the sim only deal you sign up for here. In most cases
the phone you have is unlocked although in order to use
it on another network there may be a lock which need to
be removed (can be done cheaply online or at local
shops). In most cases the contracts offered here are NOT
available on the high street so you can save even more
buy buying online through us.
switch to a sim only deal?
|Its almost a
guarantee that by switching to sim only you will get
more for your money. You will also get much more
minutes, texts and you may even get free internet too
for less than you're currently paying. Given that
contracts can last 30 days then you also get much more
flexibility in your contract, being able to switch at a
time that suits you and your budget. Talking of budget,
if you find the sim only deal you buy isn't the right
fit for your need or if you need more then you can call
the network and change the deal you have. Sim only
offers the user a flexible, cost effective and market
leading alternative instead of tying yourself into a
long term contract for a 'free' mobile phone.
offers you deals for specific phone types, such as
iPhone's Blackberry's or Smartphone's too - ensuring
that you get the best value for money from your mobile
phone contract. With contracts offering 100, 200 or even
2000 minutes a month there is a deal available no matter
how much you talk. What's more they usually come with
around 3,000 free text messages too.
plenty of options available when you sign up for a sim
only deal, if you want unlimited landline calls,
unlimited text messages and unlimited internet access
then there are deals for you on The Sim Only shop.
