One of the easiest ways to save money on your mobile phone bill is switching to a SIM only deal. If you’re still happy with your phone, why spend money on a new one if the one you have is still good? There are plenty of options available for the savvy shopper and it’s not as difficult as you might think to find a deal that works for you.
They are More Cost-Effective
A SIM only deal means you are only paying for the minutes, text and data — you are not subsidising an expensive piece of tech. The savings can be quite impressive. With fewer noticeable differences between handsets, people are choosing to hang on to their phones a bit longer and take advantage of the savings SIM only can offer. Without the added cost of the handset you can spend more on data and still save money.
Not only do SIM only plans offer great value for money they also offer a lot more for your money when it comes to data. Many SIM only plans come with unlimited minutes and texts as well as unlimited data. In fact, unlimited SIM only plans are among some of the most popular on the market today. Unlimited data is less common in plans with handsets, or too prohibitively expensive for most people to even consider. Not everyone needs loads of data, but it’s worth it is you do a lot of streaming, play mobile games or don’t have access to WiFi. With unlimited data you can surf, watch and game to your heart’'s content without fear of a huge bill at the end of the month.
You Get to Keep Your Handset
Now this seem like a strange advantage in a world where technology changes on what seems like a daily basis and it isn’t just an option for older customers. Perhaps you broke your old phone mid contract and had to buy one outright, or maybe you just HAD to have a new phone for Christmas? Whatever the reason, you are perfectly happy with your handset and that’s great, watch your monthly bills fall while you still get to use the handset you love.
Of course, there are many other reasons a SIM only plan may be right for you, but for anyone looking to save a bit of money month to month it’s a great choice.
