Benefits of phone contracts
Streaming movies and music, downloading apps, and updating social media can all take a toll on your mobile internet usage, especially if you’re still on pay-as-you-go, and the same is true if you enjoy long phone conversations, or you're a regular texter.
The simple fact is that pay monthly phones can offer much better value than pay-as-you-go. Take a look at the mobile phone deals that are available with a contract, and discover big monthly bundles that are likely to work out cheaper than buying phone credit.
Can contract phones save me money?
If you're a regular user, you're sure to save plenty of money versus SIM free which is useful if you're watching your budget, or you just like to save money for other things.
Mobile internet can be pretty expensive when you're connected via pay-as-you-go, as you’ll be paying for every MB you use, whereas many phone contracts offer a range of GB quantities to ensure you're covered for a much more affordable price.
What's more, the cost of a new handset is usually split across the duration of your contract, which means you can get a brand new phone by paying monthly, or sometimes by paying a little extra upfront on your deal. And you can save even more by opting for a refurbished phone.
Which phone contract is right for me?
Whether you go for a new deal or upgrade, your plan will include calls, texts and data allowance. Just decide how much data you'll need per month, and how much you could save by rolling those charges into one monthly payment.
There is a certain flexibility with phone contracts however, allowing you to buy bolt-ons or a monthly allowance increase if you find that you need more data than you're receiving.
A pay monthly phone can easily be a great way of saving money each month, it's just a case of identifying the plan that will best suit your monthly usage. Many deals include brand new phones, so take a look through the best deals on this page to discover which is the right one for you.
MOBILE CONTRACTS FAQs
Can I get a new phone while still under contract?
If you're looking to update your contract while still under agreement, you'll need to pay an early termination fee. This is generally equivalent to your remaining months' line rental.
Who do I talk to about my contract after I apply?
Once you place an order with us, there's no need to contact us further. If there's an issue with your order, such as payment or credit checking, we'll get in touch with you.
This is my first contract - will there be a credit check?
All new mobile phone contacts require a credit check. This is a network requirement, and we're unable to affect or guarantee a credit check outcome.
Should I get a contract phone or buy a phone outright?
This is entirely down to personal preference. Ordering a contract phone helps you spread the cost over a two year period, but buying a phone outright often works out cheaper in the long run.
