How to join Asda mobile


What is SIM only?

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

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

With an Asda SIM only deal, you can choose between a Pay As You Go plan or a great value monthly bundle that can automatically renew month on month.

SIM only is cheaper, offers more flexibility with rolling monthly plans, and you remain in control of your finances.

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 home
