How does Pay as you go work?

Here's what happens

  • You need to buy a airtime credit in the form of a top up before you can make any calls or texts.
  • This credit is used to pay for the texts and calls you make - when you run out of credit you need to top-up your phone again before you can use it. More about how to top-up.
  • When you buy a Pay as you go phone you're required to purchase a minimum £10 top-up.

Should I get Pay monthly, Pay as you go or SIM only?

What are the advantages of Pay as you go?

It's great value

There are no monthly charges and Pay as you go phones are really affordable.

There's no credit check

If your credit history isn't the best, then this is a great option.

You know exactly how much you're spending

If you use up all your airtime credit you just won't be able to make any more calls or send texts - there are no other charges.

You're not tied to a contract

Walk away whenever you want.

Sounds great - how do I sign up?
