Which UK Mobile Phone Companies Offer The Best Phone Tariffs?

Finding the mobile phone carriers that offer the best mobile phone tariffs can be a bit confusing due largely in part to the huge amount of competing networks, manufacturers and distributors. The mobile phones market is saturated with consumer choice and offers can differ hugely from one network to the next and whether you choose to buy online or through a high street store.

For some buyers, a ‘SIM only’ deal may be best suited. This is a simple deal which many consumers fail to take up and you may find that you get a very comprehensive package for a fraction of the cost – because as customers you won’t receive new mobile phones.

Most of your current contract bill covers the cost of your phone so may easily add an extra £10 a month on your tariff. If you have a phone you quite like, why not keep it and take on a SIM only package. Similarly if you can find you can buy a cheap phone you can then provide the SIM and contract yourself. Phones4U have some excellent SIM only deals or you can find them directly through the networks.

A £10.50 a month, 12 month SIM only plan from Vodafone could get you 300 minutes, 500MB data and unlimited texts – this kind of scheme would cost you way more if you included the phone.

A SIM only deal with T-Mobile can cost as little as £8 a month and for that you would get a 12 month contract with 300mins talk time, 5,000 texts and for an extra £2 a month you get 250MB data. If you don’t use the net much this deal without the add-on can be a good option.

Three Mobile has one of the most interesting SIM only deals. They advertise that for £25 a month on a rolling contract you can get 2,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and unlimited data. If you have a good phone already all you can eat data combined with the generous minutes and texts allowances equates to a very good deal.

If you’re looking for the full mobile phone and contract package internet suppliers like dial-a-phone have some good deals on the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 which some of the high street stores may struggle to match.

Whichever route you decide to go you should always make sure to shop around and weight your options. Sometimes just because that deal looks like a great bargain up front it won't mean that it's going to be the best option over the long run.
