Cheap Options for Using Your Mobile Phone Abroad
Sick of expensive and restraining mobile phone contracts? For many of us, phone contracts are the norm - but could you be getting a better deal by switching to our PAYG standard tariff?

If money is one of your main concerns, then this will be the best option for you. Our standard pay as you go tariff allows you to keep your current phone, which means that you won’t have to pay for the cost of a new phone.
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! Or, alternatively, check out our great value PAYG bundles.
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 some monthly contracts have capped allowances, most of them allow you to use up more than you should and surprise you with additional charges for picture messages and running over your data allowance. On our pay as you go plan, you only use and pay for what you need.
If you do run out of allowances there are multiple ways in which you can top-up; using a top-up card, voucher, by phone or by text. We have video tutorials for each method here if you are a little unsure!
Keeping your old mobile phone can save you money, with new phones such as the iPhone XS exceeding £1000 people are keeping their old phones for longer. Find out how to keep your old mobile number.
Using our pay as you go standard tariff means you’re not tied down - unlike monthly contracts, which are often 12 months or 24 months long. If you know you’ll be needing a little extra data one month, all you need to do is top-up more than usual.
If you’re on a phone contract, however, 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.
Having a Pay As You Go gives you the flexibility and freedom to put your sim card into any unlocked phone! We know mobile customers like to switch their phones regularly - Check out Asda mobile phones here.
By using a sim only deal you can swap phones as often as you wish whilst keeping the same number, data, call and text allowances! Many of our customers find this extremely handy as mobile phone contracts usually limit your allowances. With a sim only you are in control.
Should you choose our pay as you go standard tariff instead of a monthly contract?
