SIM only contracts


What is a SIM only deal?

A SIM only deal is basically the same as a normal monthly phone contract. The only difference is that the deal doesn’t include a phone. All you get is a SIM card which is ready to give you a certain amount of minutes, data, and texts every month. It’s up to you to buy the phone to go with it!

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. It’s nice to hear about your planned travel to the UK. 😃

      As a comparison website, we are not permitted to provide specific recommendations. However, you can check your options on this page. On this page, you will know more about how to set up a local SIM card in the United Kingdom.

      There are four main phone operators in the UK: EE, Vodafone, O2, and Three. All of these operators are tried and tested and provide quality services. All of them also offers unlimited text and data packages. So, the choice is ultimately yours to make. What I can suggest is for you to research your options, read about each operator, and ultimately determine which one would meet your budget, needs, and preference.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Hi Sarah,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Currently, we do not have a page where you may compare data-only mobile plans. I suggest that you check out providers you may see on this mobile plans page to help you find the data-only plan that would suit your needs.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
