Cheap Low Cost SIM Only Deals

Phone contracts can be really expensive, and if you love the phone that you already have, what’s the point in paying more money than necessary to spend more than you have to? Thankfully, there are a range of great SIM only contracts that you’ll be able to use with your current phone. We’ve put together a list of the best SIM only contracts available for £15 per month or less.


GiffGaff is a unique kind of network that is part of O2, and is popular with many people thanks to the fact that they don’t carry out a credit check or require users to sign up to a contract. For just £12 per month you can get 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 2GB of mobile data – a great plan for calling, texting and browsing! The best thing about this plan is that you don’t have to stick with it for any longer than a month – so if you find a better plan on GiffGaff, you can change whenever you please.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media are popular for their excellent broadband and TV deals, however their mobile phone contracts are also pretty good. You don’t have to currently be a Virgin customer to get a phone deal, although if you are it might be worth contacting them about whether or not you’re entitled to a discount. Virgin Media are currently offering a great SIM only deal that gives you unlimited minutes and texts along with 2GB of data for just £12 a month. There’s no contract – it’s a 30 day rolling contract, meaning that after the first month you can cancel or change whenever you want.

Even though it’s a lesser-known network, The People’s Operator uses EE’s signal, meaning that you’ll never be stuck for coverage. Not only that, but their deals are great – for just £14.99 per month you’ll get unlimited minutes and texts, and a whopping 6GB of data – bargain!
