Virgin Media – New offers, still really cheap

Situation report then. Virgin Media are doing a mad amount of data for £18 right now. You knew that because you follow us on Twitter and love our right good writing and that. However, they’re now chopping down the prices of other SIM only deals too. Today, February …

Wait a minute. Unlimited data? £20 per month?!

Until about 10 minutes ago, if you wanted unlimited data on a SIM only plan I would’ve pointed you to this Three UK deal which delivers unlimited data with 200 minutes of chatter and unlimited texts. However, Virgin Mobile have just added another Black Friday deal. I really …

OK, we’ve got a better one. 6GB per month for a tenner

Just last week we found a SIM-only deal on Plusnet which gives 5GB of data for £10 per month. Now though, Virgin Mobile have gone one better with 6GB of data for £10 per month on a SIM only deal. This one runs until December 20th and Virgin …

Cheap Three deals for Coolsmartphone readers

Whilst some will dress this up as something it isn’t, I’d rather be honest about it. Last week I had to ask you for money. I really, really don’t like doing this so we’ve had a bit of a think and come up with another way in which …

Plusnet Mobile SIM Only deals.. GO!

There really shouldn’t be much of a reason NOT to go with a “virtual” operator nowadays. Take Plusnet as an example. They use the EE masts so the signal is going to be flippin’ good. Right now they’ve got some deals which, if you’re quick and you want …

Got a fiver? Grab a SIM-only 1GB plan here.

OK, I’ve got to be quick with this one as iD Mobile have, after pushing out lots of bonkers adverts, gone a bit nuts with this one particular deal and I’m going to make the most of it. If you’re looking for a low-cost SIM-only plan for a …

Quick Friday offer for SIM only data junkies

I’ll keep this brief, because I’m hopefully talking to those who want a massive slice of data on a network with great coverage. This one is with Virgin Mobile, who use EE. Their SIM-only offer will give you a massive 20GB of data plus 5000 minutes and unlimited …

Don’t just upgrade. It takes seconds to get a better deal.

Fancy getting the Samsung Galaxy S8 this weekend? Perhaps you just want a better deal on your contract? Well, as we always say here at Coolsmartphone, don’t just upgrade with your current provider. That’s bonkers. Go armed. Doing a straight upgrade, just because you want the latest shiny …

Another new network, this time from Vodafone. Welcome VOXI

Yesterday we covered a new virtual network call SMARTY. This is a more simple network that offers purely SIM-only plans at competitive prices. As we found out, it is being run by, and on top of, the Three network. Now Vodafone have done something pretty similar, and both …

Unlimited texts, unlimited minutes, 4GB of data – £11 on Three

The key to writing a good article and getting it indexed, getting it noticed, getting a good SEO rating and lots of comments, is to make it either shocking, argumentative and of a certain length. Now, if I just revealed the core of this particular news item in …

Three 100GB SIM-only deals. Big data, not-so-big cost.

It’s Friday! Clucking Friday! Now, although this isn’t “all you can eat”, it’s still a lot of data. Yes, yes, I know there’ll still be the “die hards” out there who really, really want the completely and utterly unlimited mobile data pipes, but if you’re looking for that …

SIM only deal – 4G, BT, come see, act quickly.

We love a good deal and, as you know, the best mobile deals tend to be SIM only ones. Today we’ve got one with the company that now owns EE, so this particular offering will be running on that network. You’ll get unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and a …

New SIM Only deals from Vodafone and EE

With inexpensive handsets entering the market from the likes of OnePlus, WileyFox and co, the proposition of entering a SIM only contract is far more appealing to your pocket as oppose to signing up to 24-month handset contracts. Recently my 24-month contract ended on EE but I have …

Vodafone – 10GB SIM-only for just £11.59 per month

I’ve reached the end of an EE SIM-only deal that I took out last year. It should’ve been £20.99 but I managed to get it down to £16.99 per month for 4GB of data and enough minutes to keep me waffling to the missus. However, that deal is …

£5 for 1GB of data – SIM-only deal of the day

This weekend was my tenth wedding anniversary. It really doesn’t seem like a decade. Not at all. I remember being at the church, going on honeymoon and even writing about it here just five minutes ago. What happened eh ? We spent most of the weekend celebrating. On …

Virgin Media – Data usage gets throttled

Would you class more than 3.5GB of monthly data as “excessive”? Well, Virgin Media doesn’t seem to think that. At least not when selling their SIM-only packages. As an example, you can buy a 4GB plan for £15 per month or an 8GB plan for £23 per month. …

Deal – EE SIM-only offer you just HAVE to purchase!

Some time ago I took out a 12 month EE SIM-only plan. It was a pretty good deal I thought, and delivered 4GB of data every month for £19.99. Not bad, but it was made even better thanks to a cashback offer I’d grabbed. It brought the monthly …

LIFE Mobile Spring sale

If 4G isn’t a massive “want” then you might want to take a look at LIFE Mobile. They’re an MVNO using the EE network and offer SIM only deals. There’s a UK call centre, no credit checks and right now they’re offering some discounts on their plans. You …

How does 25GB for £15 a month sound? Come on in, friends

EE have returned with their rather insane SIM-only data-only plan. You get double-speed 4G data and a massive 25GB monthly allowance for just £15! Here’s how to get it. Head to the SIM Only EE pages and choose the £30 25GB package at the bottom. Then open the …

A SIM-only 2GB plan for just £7.07 per month? Read on

I tend to dip into Quidco every now and then. It’s especially useful if you’re about to start a contract – and that can be a broadband deal, TV package or a new gas supplier. If you’re looking around for a mobile deal then it’s beneficial too, and …

New EE SIM only plans go official

Remember those all new SIM only EE plans we leaked last week? Well, we said they’d launch on February 10th, and guess what, here they are. The big sell here is that the new 4G SIM-only plans now have inclusive calls and texts when you’re in the EU, …

Three start their SIM sale

Yes, we’re getting emails from PR agencies telling us about January sales already. This one is from Three, who are launching their “biggest SIM sale ever”. They’re offering half price SIM-only deals for as little as £4 for the first three months of a 12 month plan. Not …

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 setup. …

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 Pay …

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 a …

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 first …
