Things to consider when comparing the best Sim Only deals for you

What length of contract are you happy with?

At Virgin Mobile we have a range of contracts to choose from, whether you want a 30 day sim only plan or a longer contract with a new phone. We have the right option for you!

What text and calls are included in my plan?

The amounts that come as standard with a provider such as calls, texts and data will vary. Ask yourself are you more a data person or a talker when you’re looking to compare the best mobile plan for your needs. 

What’s my data allowance?

Knowing what your data allowance is for your plan will help you avoid expensive monthly bills. At Virgin Mobile our unlimited plan gives our customers unlimited data so you will never have to worry about running out!


We have some great SIM Only deals for data!

Any hidden charges?

Some networks will have charges when you go over their data for example, by asking all the questions up front you’ll be able to better control your monthly bills.

Can I keep my own number?
