The Pro’s and Con’s of SIM Only
What is SIM Only?
As the name suggests, SIM only deals involve the mobile network providing you with a SIM. You need to provide your own phone or buy one from them. You then pay for the minutes, texts and data you want, either on a pay as you go basis or via a monthly contract.

If approved you pay monthly for a contract

You keep your current phone
Pay As You Go means you have no commitment

Should You Switch?
One of the things that frustrates us most here at TheMoneyDaily.com is when people come to the end of their 12 or 24-month phone contract (a contract that included a free phone) and don’t renegotiate or switch to a SIM only contract. The cost of the “free” phone is tied into the monthly payments which means when the contract comes to an end the phone is paid for and you no longer need to pay the same amount each month. It’s estimated that £355m a year is wasted in the UK as a result of mobile phone users not switching to SIM only or renegotiating their contract at the end of the initial period.
