What is a SIM only deal?
With a SIM only deal you pay a monthly amount and get an allowance of data, calls and texts. What's the difference from a traditional pay-monthly phone deal? It's as the name suggests - all you're paying for is the SIM card and the data, calls and text allowances - you don't pay for a phone.
Are you out of contract?
Or maybe you love your current phone and don't want a new handset?
In these circumstances you could make big savings by switching to a SIM-only deal.
How? : This is because if you stay on the same plan once your contract is up, you may still be paying the same amount as when you originally signed up.
That price would consist of the cost of a handset, that you would have since paid off, as well as your data, so in effect you would be overpaying for what you actually need.
Another option could be to purchase a new smartphone outright.
Although this can be most cost to start with, but if you can afford the upfront payment, it can potentially work out in your favour and prove to be much more cost-effective over time; as with a separate SIM-only plan you can get far more data, minutes and texts, at a fraction of the cost, you would be paying if in a contract.
