Disadvantages of SIM-only contracts.

Wow only two.......

  • you provide the phone.
  • you'll need to unlock the phone if changing networks.

Hard getting credit? If that's the case it may be hard getting a SIM-only contract deal that's over one month.  No credit check with 1month SIM only contracts.

Make sure you order the right size of simcard, standard.....micro......nano

Is it always important to check the out of allowance rates?  Yes it is.

Mobile-phone and network companies want to hold-on to their customers for as long as possible,so to make you sign up to longer contracts, they offer  incentives so often, they offer "free" gifts, need it rather than want it?


According to Billmonitor, formed by mathematicians in Oxford, produced the figures after analysing nearly 28,500 anonymous mobile phone bills and comparing to 8.5million contracts on offer from retailers and network providers.

They found out that :-

52% of Users are on tariffs that’s too large for them, as a result of being on the wrong tariff, users use on average just one quarter of their monthly calling allowance.
Total waste: £2.62bn

29% Users are on tariffs that’s too small for them, as a result of being on the wrong tariff they wasted money on out of allowance calls, data usage, texts,  as well as other costs that could be reduced with a larger tariff like 40p/pic sent.
Total waste: £1.53bn

19% waste money by not optimising free benefits, text and  data allowances, or taking advantage of the lower costs that 24 month contracts provide, however they have the right level of inclusive minutes.
Total waste: £0.74bn

There are a number of points to look at before choosing a contract. For instance, mobile-phone and network companies want to hold-on to their customers for as long as possible,so to make you sign up to longer contracts, they offer  incentives so often.

Going on an 18month or 24month contract, rather the traditional shorter 12month contract, can save you between £5 and £10 per month.  However in the world of mobile phones 24 months is a long time changes happen fast, new tariffs, phones, faster connectivity could move house.

choosing the wrong tariff can proof costly..make good you don't end-up with a face like him.
