If you already have a phone you love, simply get a Pay As You Go SIM card (so it’s ‘SIM only’) and use it with your phone. You’ll get a great value with our Pay As You Go SIM only deals, as they all come with top up bundles that include loads of minutes, texts and data.
With Pay As You Go, or PAYG, you’re not tied to any contracts. You can top up as little or a much as you like, when you like, to get more minutes, texts and data. And you control how much you spend. There are also no credit checks involved, so everyone is eligible.
Yes – all SIMs we are selling are multi-SIMs that are designed to fit any device (the only exception is Virgin SIMs). Just pop out the size to fit your handset.
As for the Virgin SIMs – they come in two different sizes, a Nano SIM (the smallest SIM card) and a Micro SIM (the second smallest size). Just pop into any of our stores with your phone and we’ll sort out what size of SIM you’ll need if you are after a Virgin SIM.
Once you've bought your SIM, call your current network provider, ask for your PAC code, note it down, and call your new network provider with the information; they will then talk you through the process for moving your number across to your new simcard.
The Pay As You Go bundles and packs give you loads of data, minutes and texts. If you use your phone a lot, they’re cheaper than paying standard rates.
A PAYG bundle or pack could save you money if you like using your phone a lot to call and text, or browse the internet. For example, you can buy a bundle and it’ll automatically renew once you’ve used all your data, minutes or texts (network dependent).
Your Bundle or Pack won’t renew. But as soon as you do top up, your Bundle or Pack will automatically start - so you won’t have to do anything else.
You’ll find the best network deals right here, on this page. You get lots of choice from our wide range of networks, and you get all the usual network benefits.
So when you find the deal you know you want, just pop into any of the Carphone Warehouse stores and we’ll get you sorted. Alternatively, call 0800 049 6250.
