Cheapest Vodafone Sim Only Deal
Why choose Vodafone Sim Only?

Vodafone SIM Only contracts are generally cheaper than equivalent standard Vodafone contracts. This is because a phone is not included with SIM Only contracts, so the cost of a handset does not have to be factored into monthly charges.

Reasons to Choose Vodafone SIM Only:

  • 12 month, 90 day or 30 day options available.
  • Standard phone, Smartphone and BlackBerry tariffs.
  • Music, fashion and Formula 1 events with Vodafone VIP.


Vodafone Sim Only Information

Jump To:
  • Tariff Information

    SIM Only contracts from Vodafone are available with 30 day, 90 day, or 12 month durations. These contracts are ideal for customers who are happy with their current phone. Because the cost of an expensive new handset is not factored into the monthly costs, SIM Only contracts are consistently cheaper than equivalent contracts with phones included, as well as offering flexible short contract terms.

    Vodafone divide their SIM Only tariffs into three categories: Standard phone, Smartphone and BlackBerry. All three offer unlimited texts and are available with 30 day, 90 day or 12 month durations. Customers who select longer contract durations receive higher allowances per month than customers on shorter contracts.

    Standard phone SIM Only contracts do not include mobile data use in their standard monthly allowances and instead include more free minutes than similarly priced Smartphone plans. Some Standard phone plans also include additional free minutes to Vodafone numbers.

    Smartphone SIM Only contracts include a mobile data allowance and BT Openzone Wi-Fi access. BlackBerry plans are the same as Smartphone plans but with the additional inclusion of BlackBerry services and email.

  • Transfer Procedure
    • Buy your new SIM Only plan as normal. You will be issued with a new mobile number by Vodafone.
    • Get in touch with your previous network operator and request a ‘PAC’. This stands for ‘Porting Authorisation Code’ and is a code you need to move your number to a new network.
    • You should be given a PAC either immediately over the phone or by text message soon after you call.
    • When you have your PAC, call Vodafone and give them the code and your details. They should then be able to process your transfer
  • Data Allowance
    • All Smartphone and BlackBerry SIM Only contracts come with data allowances and BT Openzone WiFi access.
    • Vodafone SIM Only customers can also purchase a web pack to add data to their contract.
    • Customers without an inclusive allowance or web pack can still access the internet through Vodafone’s network. This is charged per day.
