At WhatSIM we believe you should be equipped with as much choice information as possible to make an informed decision. We list more SIM Only Providers than any other SIMO comparison website.
This is a Fair Website
This site was built by experienced professionals who have worked in the mobile industry for years. We have years of experience working with mobile phone networks, resellers and comparison sites and understand that most comparison websites don't always offer the best choice. We are committed to doing things differently.
Featured and top deals on WhatSIM are calculated based on merit and maths. Networks cannot boost their deals by paying us more money. Read more about the WhatSIM fairness promise here.
Is SIM Only Right for me?
A SIMO contract can slash your bills compared to a normal mobile phone contract. By separating your mobile tariff from the purchase of your phone you are free to re-use an old phone or purchase a new phone from anywhere you like.
- Freedom to use any phone
- SIM Only contracts almost always come with more data than bundled deals.
- The same benefits (usually) and SIM + phone deals.
- The exact same roaming arrangements
- Share your data with your tablet or laptop
Who is the best SIM Only provider?
That very much depends on what you need to use your phone or SIM for. We made WhatSIM to help you find the best solution for your own specific requirements. If cost is the primary factor we reccomend you look at MVNO networks or 12 month contracts, which are usually the most competitive.
