Life Mobile – A possible SIM-only cheap alternative

Right, let’s be honest, you’ve probably never heard of this MVNO and they only offer 3G packages. However… They were purchased from the Phones 4U administrators by EE, and Life Mobile unsurprising runs on EE. Right now they have some “summer special” tariffs on 30 day SIM-only

Already SIM-only? Keep looking, you could get an even better deal

Let’s assume that there’s a healthy section of you on giffgaff. Let’s also assume that you might be going to an area where the signal perhaps isn’t so great. Perhaps you’ve looked at Three and thought that getting 1GB of data for £14 isn’t enough on a

EE Announce new SIM-only plans

The SIM-only market continues to remain popular. It allows users to purchase a handset outright, pay less per month and generally have  shorter contact periods Today EE have announced new 30 day and 12 month SIM-only plans ranging from £9.99 to £31.99 per month, further details of which are

Vodafone SIMs become flexible

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

18 month SIM only deals now available on Tesco Mobile

SIM only deals, to me at least, usually mean one month rolling plans. However, if you want to lock yourself into a longer deal and possibly get even better value for money, you can go for a 12 month plan. Tesco Mobile has today become the UK’s

Vodafone SIM-only deals – reduced prices on Red plans

Got a phone? Happy with it? Just want a SIM? Vodafone look to have tweaked their SIM only deals with their Red 12-month plans dropping in price. The base Red deal is now £15.30 (down from £17) and you’ll get unlimited texts and calls with 1GB of

New Vodafone SIM only plans quietly slip out

If you’re looking for a SIM only deal, have a word with the dudes in your local Vodafone store. They’ve got some new offerings, which we’ve just had mailed to us, and they won’t be available online until next week. There’s new lower pricing and additional data

Need more data on EE SIM only? Good luck!

EE recently updated their SIM only contracts giving more data for a limited time, the highest being 10GB a month which is still way short of the 20GB and 50GB options with a 2 year contract. Whilst adding more data is good for everyone, we have just

Three launch new SIM only plans

Three UK has today launched a new range of SIM-only contracts. In a way this mirrors how they relaunched their contract plans recently. Customers will be able to start at just £7 a month for 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. This includes free 0800

Some rather excellent SIM-only deals to save you money

Saving money. Secretly we all love to do it. Whether it’s a necessity or not, saving a few quid here means that you can have a beer there. Over on HotUKDeals they have a frequently updated thread detailing the latest SIM-only deals. The prices are already low,

[Opinion] The art of the money grab

I’ve been a T-Mobile customer for a couple of years now, and overall I’ve been pretty happy with their service. Crucially, the plan has unlimited data with a ‘fair usage policy’ – which turned out to be 500MB. Naturally, being a blogger, I go over that limit

Three launch a new SIM-only data plan, but we’re not happy

I’ve got a SIM card here from Three. It’s on the SIM Zero plan which the network doesn’t actually do any longer. For £5 I get 2GB of data per month. Sure, I don’t get any calls or texts included, but for my tablet or secondary smartphone

Big rise in customers taking SIM Only deals

Everything seems to cost a lot more than it used to and you’re working twice as hard for half the money. It’s rubbish. Phones are expensive, contracts are long and, if you’re on “certain” networks, the price goes up half-way through. To put it bluntly, we’re all

Sunday Bargains – Pretty hot T-Mobile SIM-only deal

The guys from T-Mobile have a pretty decent deal on right now. It’s 5000 texts and 300 minutes per month plus another 500 minutes to T-Mobile customers every month. There’s also 750MB of data per month but, right now, they’re giving another 250MB of data per month

HTC Desire C price dip, possible gift material

We reviewed the HTC Desire C when it was selling for £189 unlocked. The 600MHz CPU struggled a little with serious browsing and the camera quality wasn’t stellar, but now it’s down to just £87.26 if you’re upgrading in store and online at Carphone Warehouse. The pay
