SIM Only Plans are an affordable and accessible option for anyone, allowing customers to keep their existing device but upgrade their mobile phone experience – and at less of a cost. With a SIM Only Plan (sometimes called Bring Your Own or BYO Plans) you don’t get a new phone as part of the deal – just a SIM connected to the provider’s network. This makes the plan cheaper as you’re not paying for a new device but only for the service itself.
These types of plans usually offer all or most of the features of a 24-month contract plan, but without the new device included. And with SIM Only, you can pick from among a wide range of plans to find the one that best suits your needs.
SIM Only Plans come with options for a postpaid contract or for a prepaid plan where you buy credit in advance or as you go. They also offer flexibility in that the SIM can easily be transferred from one device to another. This means if you decide to purchase a new phone you only need to remove the SIM from your old phone and insert it in the new one, without any interruption to your service or need to change your existing phone number.
