Save Money!

If money is one of your main concerns, then pay as you go will be the best option for you. Our pay as you go bundles allow you to keep your current phone, meaning you won’t have to pay for the cost of a new one. Being locked into a £30+ per month contract is a thing of the past with you as you go. Think of how much you could save by only paying for what you need.

Our standard tariff call costs just 8p per minute to any UK mobile or landline, 4p per text to any UK mobile number, and 5p per MB of data! Order a free SIM card today.

We also offer plenty of money-saving bundles, which give you a variety of data and minutes, as well as unlimited texts.


Never Go Over Your Allowance

Once it’s gone, it’s gone - and we won’t charge you any more! On our standard tariff, you’re only given a certain allowance. This means you won't overspend once you’ve used up your balance. While a number of monthly contracts have capped allowances, some networks allow you to use up more than you should and surprise you with additional charges. On an Asda Mobile pay as you go plan, you only use and pay for what you need.

If you do run out of credit there are multiple ways in which you can top-up


Keep Your Old Mobile Phone & Number

With new phones like the iPhone 11 Pro Max exceeding £1000, keeping your old phone can save you a lot of money. It's not surprising that people these days are keeping their smartphones for longer.

If you want to keep your old mobile phone, you need to make sure that it's unlocked and ready to work with one of our SIMs. It's not difficult to unlock your phone, but there's usually  small cost involved. You should check with your current network provider how to do it and how much it'll cost.

Transferring your mobile number is super simple - just contact your old network provider and ask for a PAC code, then we'll take care of the rest. If you want to find out more, we've put together a handy guide about keeping your old mobile number.


Flexibility and Freedom

One of the most attractive benefits of PAYG is the flexibility and freedom. By using a sim only deal you can swap phones as often as you want, whilst keeping the same number, as well as data, call and text allowances! Better yet, you're not locked into a long contract, which would restrict your usage for a long period of time.

With Asda Mobile, you can switch bundles every month, so you're only paying for as much or as little data and minutes as you want. If you know you’ll be needing a little extra data one month, all you need to do is top-up more than usual.With a sim only plan, you are in control.

Having an Asda Mobile pay as you go sim also gives you the freedom to use any unlocked phone. You’re also not tied down by a lengthy contract - you can be with Asda Mobile for however long you like. Our bundle deals last for 30 days, and there are no charges for leaving.

If you’re on a phone contract, you’ll need to wait for it to end before you can change your minutes, texts and data allowance, as it is part of a signed contract. If you’re desperate to leave your contract before it expires, you’ll have to pay a hefty termination fee to be able to do so.
