Calculate how much data, minutes, and texts you use – you can create custom plans on what you do and don’t use. When taking out a new mobile phone contract some providers also offer an incentive to trade in your old handset.
What’s the difference between a contract phone and SIM-only plan?
A monthly contract has a fixed fee, depending on any extras you might add on during the month, with a calls, texts, and data allowance.
