Each year people waste millions of pounds on paying more for mobile phone contracts than they should and despite this only 12% of pay monthly customers switch to a new contract. At Carphone Warehouse we believe switching and getting better connected should be great value for customers. In fact, in the last year our customers switched and saved £138m, that’s £181 on average. This is possible because of our buying power and the fact we’re independent.
We embrace Ofcom’s proposals for making it easier for consumers to switch mobile networks. We want to live in a world where it’s simple and easy for consumers to switch; removing any hassle; saving them time and money and always giving them access to the latest technology.

Wondering if you’ll have to lose the phone number you’ve had for the past ten years? Thankfully keeping the same number you’ve skilfully managed to memorise has never been easier.
All you need to do is speak to a member of Carphone Warehouse’s in-store staff when changing networks, and mention your PAC code. This code enables you to transfer your number over, and you’ll be able to get it from your current provider.
If your current pay monthly phone plan is coming to an end, switching to SIM Only could be the right choice.
All pay monthly mobile phone contracts have one thing in common. When you’ve paid for your phone in full and you arrive at your contract end date, you’re then completely free to switch to another deal. A lot of mobile phone owners choose a SIM Only contract at this point, for a number of reasons. Before we get to those, we’ll explain exactly what a SIM Only contract is.
