How do I get a cheap mobile phone deal?

Are you looking for the best and latest phone from leading companies like Apple and Samsung? Or would you rather a reliable handset with a decently monthly allowance? Either way, there are plenty of ways to find a great deal:

  • Avoid cancellation fees by making sure your current phone contract has ended before switching.

  • Find out how much data you actually need with our data usage calculator. Most providers will give you a rundown of how much data and how many minutes and texts you used, which should also give you a good idea.

  • Avoid extra charges by planning ahead. If you think you'll need more data or if you regularly make international calls, you may want to add that to your tariff.

  • Trade in or sell your old handset and use the money to either pay for any upfront costs or to help with the monthly payments.
  • Pay more upfront to reduce your monthly payments costs.

  • Check the phone contract length because a lower monthly cost over a long contract length could end up costing you more than a higher monthly cost over a short contract length.

  • Bundle up with our broadband, TV and phone comparison which could save you money by combining all three into one.

  • Take control of your spending with a pay as you go mobile deal which doesn't tie you into a long-term contract and lets you choose how much to spend month-by-month.

What’s the difference between pay-monthly phone contracts and SIM only deals?

Pay-monthly phone contracts involve paying a fixed amount every month for a new phone and a tariff. This monthly payment will cover the cost of the phone, which is paid in instalments. It also covers your monthly allowance of data, phone calls and texts. These contracts usually last between 12 and 24 months.

SIM-only deals include a new SIM card and contract, but not a phone. Deals range from rolling 1-month contracts to a fixed 24-month contract. This could be an option if you already have a phone and don't want a new one. If that's the case, you don't need to compare mobile phone deals, just SIM-only deals.
