How to join Asda mobile


What is SIM only?

A SIM only deal means you only pay for your usage, instead of paying for your handset and how much data, minutes and texts you use in a month.

This means you’ll actually save money over time, as you won’t be paying for more than you use, or for a handset you paid off long ago. Also, you’re not tied to any contract, so you can come and go as you please!

SIM only is more affordable, offers improved flexibility, and lets you stay in control of your finances.

With an Asda mobile SIM only deal, you can choose between a Pay As You Go plan or a great value monthly bundle that will automatically renew for as long as you wish to continue on it.


Benefits of SIM only with Asda mobile

There are plenty of reasons why you’ll love our SIM only deals, including:


Great value for money

Want your budget to stretch further? There’s a plan for everyone with Asda mobile. In fact, our Talk and Text plan is just £4 a month!

Don’t use that much data? Get 3GB for only £5 per month!

Want to go unlimited? We offer unlimited data starting from just £20 a month!

All our bundles also come with unlimited texts and minutes, so you’re never stuck when trying to reach those closest to you.


No contracts or credit checks

Life with Asda mobile is very flexible. Unlike some other networks, we don’t tie you to any contracts. All our bundles last for one calendar month, so you can renew, upgrade or change your SIM plan whenever you want.

As there’s no contracts, you don’t have to worry about credit checks either. Great if you’re a teenager and don’t want to risk getting turned down for credit! 


5G speeds

Superfast data is here! We cover 100 UK towns and cities with 5G data, giving you speeds up to 100x faster than 4G.

Plus, all our bundles priced at £10 or more come with 5G for no extra charge. Stay connected in crowds, wave goodbye to lag, and stream to your heart’s content!


Incredible coverage

Up to 99% UK population coverage available. We’re proudly powered by Vodafone, the country’s reliable, award-winning network.

Check how well you’re covered.


Total control with the Asda mobile app

Every aspect of your SIM only plan is available to you with the Asda mobile app. Monitor your usage, change your bundle month on month, track your payments, and more!

Also, with any one of our PAYG or SIM only plans, you’ll never exceed your monthly allowance and risk facing financial penalties.

Don’t have a smartphone? Don’t worry! You can still manage your account online through our website - talk about convenience!



If you’ve run out of data before your bundle renews, you can buy an add-on to get a mid-month boost. 


Roam like you’re at home

Enjoy 4G or superfast 5G on your next holiday at no extra charge. As long as you have an active bundle, you can roam like you’re at home in 37 European destinations.


Wi-Fi calling

Take your connection to the next level. With Wi-Fi calling, you can send texts and make calls even in remote locations, where signals may be patchy.

This is a free feature for all Asda mobile customers, providing you have a compatible phone. 


Refer a friend

Fancy a £5 reward for you and a friend? Get them to join your mobile network and you’ll both be rewarded!

Simply send an invite to your friend using the unique URL found in ‘My Account’. Your friend will need to buy a recurring pre-loaded SIM card.

Once your friend’s bundle has been active for three months, you’ll both receive a £5 Asda eGift card to spend however you want on the website.
