Frequently Asked Questions

A data only SIM is a SIM card plan that only comes with a monthly mobile data allowance. They don’t include minutes or texts. They are usually used on portable devices that you wouldn’t need to call or text from. Examples include laptops, Wi-Fi dongles, iPads, and tablets. Our data SIMs are not strictly data only SIMs, as they come with unlimited texts and data as standard.

The main reason is if you never plan to call or text anyone from the SIM. This is often the case if you use the SIM in a tablet, laptop, or Wi-Fi dongle. By opting for data only, you can usually get a better deal.

There are plenty of devices nowadays that can use a SIM. The most popular are:

  • Tablets
  • iPads
  • Wi-Fi dongles
  • Laptops

Of course! With our data SIMs, you still get unlimited minutes and texts. If you were to buy a data SIM from another provider, you could still use it in a phone, but you would be limited in what you could do.

No, data only SIMs are not any faster than SIMs that include minutes and texts. Data speed depends on the network and plan you are on, as well as your location.

This entirely depends on what type of user you are. If you only plan to use the SIM for casual internet usage, our 12GB SIM deal might be all you need. Alternatively, if you are going to use your SIM as your main source of internet, you should definitely consider an unlimited data plan.

This entirely depends on the device you are using the SIM with. You will still have a phone number, but the device needs to be able to interpret the SMS texts and calls you receive.
