Vodafone SIM only deals are becoming more flexible. I don’t mean the SIM card will bend more (please don’t try that at home), rather Vodafone are relaxing the upgrade rules.
Previously if you were on a 12 month SIM only plan then you could only upgrade to a new phone at the end of the contract. Vodafone allowed 30 day early upgrades on normal plans and 60 days early on Red plans which got added onto the end of the new contract. Now you will be able to upgrade to a new phone anytime after 3 months with no extra cancellation charges or contract extensions, it will be as if you are at the end of your contract.
The SIM only deals are now getting very competitive, with 3 months data trial, early upgrades, a 6 or 12 months free entertainment pack (Spotify, Now TV or Sky Sports mobile TV) on selected Red plans, the promise of no price rises mid contract and as an extra sweetener Vodafone are offering 10% off all Red plans. This means you can get unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and 1Gb of 4G data for £15.30 per month or 20Gb for £30 per month.
