SIM ONLY Ultimate Guide

Top questions / FAQs

  • What is a SIM only deal?

    When you buy a typical mobile phone contract you are paying for two things; the handset and the airtime (minutes, texts and data). A SIM only deal means you only get and pay for the airtime part so a select amount of minutes, texts and data. Usually this is much cheaper than a mobile phone contract and the length of contract is shorter.

  • Top reasons to go SIM only

    You want to save money

    Mobile phone contracts can be quite expensive. Switching to SIM Only is a great way to reduce mobile spend. SIM Only is much cheaper than a monthly contract due to the fact that you aren't paying towards a phone that’s worth hundreds of pounds.

    You can swap your phone whenever you like

    30-day SIM deals give you freedom and flexibility with the option to keep them recurring. With pay as you go you can swap your phone whenever you like. You don’t need to sign up to any length of contract. If you want a new phone due to your old phone being damaged or outdated you can simply purchase one; as long as the phone is unlocked.

    You're happy with your current mobile

    You want to keep your current mobile phone because it works for you. You will receive all of the usual network benefits with a SIM Only deal without paying out loads for the mobile phone.

    You need a SIM for your new SIM free phone

    Buying an unlocked phone outright can be cheaper than a monthly contract even when you add the cost of the your SIM bundle of choice.

    You can change your minutes, texts and data allowance each month

    If your mobile phone usage changes frequently then an Asda Mobile SIM might be attractive to you. You aren't in a contract so every 30-days you can choose which bundle you want. If you want more data while travelling to the EU you can add one of our Data Bundles or try our £25 bundle which includes 15GB of data!

  • What size SIM do I need for my phone?

    SIM cards come in three different sizes.

    • Standard SIM - This is the largest SIM (25mm x 15mm) and is used in phones from the 90s and early 00s.

    • Micro SIM - This medium-sized SIM (15mm x 12mm) was introduced in 2010 and is used in older smartphones such as the iPhone 4.

    • Nano SIM - Introduced in late 2012, this is the smallest SIM (12.3mm x 8.8mm) and is usually used in phones released over the last 3-4 years, such as iPhone 5 and above.

    All of these SIM card sizes are supplied when you order a free SIM from Asda Mobile. When you receive your SIM pack simply see which SIM fits into your phone or tablet SIM card slot.

  • How do I change my SIM card?

    SIM cards are tiny and therefore incredibly fiddly things to change - in particular Nano SIMs. To change your SIM card, you will need a SIM tool (small metal pin). Find the small hole on the side of your device and use this pin to pop your SIM card tray out. Place your SIM card chip-side down onto the tray and slide the tray back into your mobile phone. When you turn your phone on, your phone will recognise that this is a new SIM and prompt you to set it up.

  • How do I set up a recurring bundle?
