Keep your Existing Handset with Sim Only Deals

Do you salivate over your Samsung S4 S4 or adore your Apple iPhone? If the answer is yes, then you probably don’t want to get rid of your current handset and upgrade to a new model, despite the offers from your phone network to provide you with the latest, greatest handsets to suit your needs.

There is a way you can stay connected and keep your existing handset, by opting for a sim only deal. Take a few moments to read our guide to sim only deals and see if they’re the right option for you.

How Does It Work?

Sim only means that you only get a sim card, you don’t need to pay for a new handset. So, for example, if you have an Orange phone and it’s nearing the end of its contract, you could order a sim card on a sim only deal from Orange, which means you can simply insert the sim card into your existing handset and remain connected to the network.

Sim only deals are also a great option for anyone who has bought a pre-owned phone online or from a high street retailer, as they allow you to get connected to the network of your choice.

It’s important to note that you may have to pay to have your phone unlocked if you’re looking to move to a different network, for example, if you buy a phone which is already on Orange, and you decide to move to O2, you’ll need to have the handset unlocked.

Tariff Choices

Most sim only deals will offer you a range of tariffs to choose from – with some sim cards you may have to choose your tariff when you order the sim card, particularly if you’re going to be signing up to a new monthly contract.

If you’re ordering a sim only deal on a pay as you go basis, you’ll usually find that you can change your tariff when you connect your phone to the network, which allows you some flexibility.

It’s important to think about how you use your phone when ordering a sim only deal. Normally, when signing a new mobile phone contract, you’ll be influenced by the choice of handset, but in this case there is only the tariff to think about! Make sure you sign up for a tariff that provides you with enough minutes, texts and data to satisfy your needs, otherwise you could end up with a very large phone bill on your hands!
