Choosing your tariff

Whether you’d rather go for a monthly tariff loaded with unlimited calls, texts or data, or have the freedom to only pay for what you use, we’ll help you find the right plan for you.

Pay As You Go, Pay Monthly or SIM only?

Which way do you prefer to pay?

  • Avoid top-up hassles and get more with one of our 12 or 24-month Pay Monthly contracts
  • Stay footloose and fancy free, top up when you need to, with Pay As You Go
  • Go SIM only, and stick one of our great-value SIMs in your old phone

There’s no need to rush your decision. So grab yourself a cuppa and we’ll talk you through the benefits of each option.

Pay Monthly

What you get

  • A shiny new mobile
  • A SIM card
  • Your choice of Pay Monthly tariff (which you can swap whenever you like)
  • Loads of added benefits like insurance from just £2 a month.

Why it’s great

  • Get your hands on some of the best phones money can buy (and make all your friends green with envy)
  • Spread the cost of your mobile over the length of your contract (either 12 or 24 months) so you can get a great phone without paying for it all up front
  • You don’t have to keep topping up your phone with credit. Set up a Direct Debit and your payment just comes out of your bank account each month. It doesn’t get easier than that
