SIM Only Deals
This isn't really about simple phones as a SIM only deal doesn't come with a phone at all - that's the point. These deals will be good for you if you either already have a phone - maybe where the contract has run out or you bought it on Pay As You Go but are now using too many minutes to make it economical - or you want to buy one of the simple phones only available SIM free. Either way what you are getting here is the SIM card and a certain amount of minutes and texts per month.
Some are 12 month contracts but most SIM only deals are only 1 month - you are tied in for a rolling 30 days only.
