Plusnet SIMs are available from £7.00 per month. These are rolling monthly contracts.
What type of deal do I need?
- Phone SIMs
- If you're just looking to purchase an ongoing airtime bundle for the device you already own you can purchase a SIM with a 12-month or 30-day rolling contract. These are usually good value if you make use of mobile data - you'll have a set allowance per month and you can even set spend caps to make sure you're never hit with an unexpected bill.
What contract length should I go for?
The most popular contract length is 24 months and will be suitable for most people. You'll have a fixed allowance of data, minutes and texts over this period and you'll pay the same amount per month. Although you may find there is a small rise each spring in-line with RPI inflation (usually 1-4%).
However some networks are offering more flexible 30 and 36 month contracts. With these you're able to adjust your tariff up and down each month if you find your usage changing. The line rental and device payments are split too, meaning you can pay the device portion off early and upgrade before the full term if you wish.
How are reseller prices cheaper than the networks?
We partner with retailers such as Affordable Mobiles, Mobile Phones Direct, Mobiles.co.uk and Fonehouse - the deals they offer can be considerably better than ordering directly through a network.
They're able to do this because they have ongoing bulk order agreements with the networks, enabling them to make savings and pass the value onto you. The phone is brand new (unless it's specifically stated to be a "refurbished" deal) and the contract you've agreed to will always be with the network themselves - just as if you'd ordered from them in the first place.
All our partners are well established companies who have received hundreds of positive reviews on Trustpilot that you can read before ordering, so you can buy in confidence.
How do manual cashback redemptions work?
The deals that have the lowest average cost per month often include a manual redemption element. This will involve uploading the electronic version of your phone bill from certain months of the contract within a claim time window to ensure you're still connected and have kept up with the payments. Please read the individual retailer's terms as the exact months, windows and cashback payment methods can vary.
For example - you place an order for a 24-month contract in January which includes redemption cashback of £100 to be claimed in months 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18. Within a few days of receiving your phone and being connected to the network your first bill will be raised, dated January. In this case your 6th bill will be the one dated June - this is the one to be uploaded to the retailer you ordered from. Within 14 days you'll receive cashback of £20. You then repeat this process in September, December and so on until the full £100 has been claimed.
How do I order?
After you've made your choice of colour, storage size and the plan that suits you best click the "Get Deal" button on the deal card. You'll be transferred to the retailer's or network's website where you can place your order. Please note that we are a price comparison service - your order is not placed with us, but with the retailer directly.
What if I change my mind after I order?
If your order hasn't been dispatched yet, then you may be able call the customer service number found on the retailer's site and cancel. If you've already received the phone, you have 14 days after taking delivery to request a return - even if you've opened the packaging and used it. It's equivalent to going into a phone shop and trying their display models before you buy, since you weren't able to do this beforehand having bought online. Some networks may opt to offer even longer evaluation periods to make sure you're fully satisfied with their signal coverage.
