How to get the cheapest phone deal

Compare, compare, compare!

There’s an overwhelming number of mobile deals out there. That’s why we’ve built a platform for you to compare them all – and find the cheapest plan that fits everything you need.

Just use our mobile deal comparison tool, switch the filters to select what you want from a plan, and sort the whole table by cost. The cheapest deals will float right to the top. Easy!

Still too pricey? There are a few things you can do to bring that cost down…

  • Choose a smaller, budget-focused network
  • Pick an older model of phone – last year’s iPhone is cheaper than the latest one, for example
  • Go for a refurbished handset
  • Pick a lower data allowance – most of us don’t actually need unlimited data, and you can save a few bob by choosing a plan with less
  • Consider the contract length – shorter-term phone contracts tend to cost less overall, while longer-term SIM deals shave off a few quid every month

What should I look for in a phone contract?

You have tons of choice when it comes to phone contracts, but the right one for you will depend on what you need and want from a plan. The main factors you’ll want to think about are…

  • The phone – Do you want an iPhone or an Android? The latest no-holds-barred ultra mega plus flagship, or an affordable mid-range model? Big or small, powerful or simple?
  • Data allowance – Most networks offer unlimited data, or you can save money by choosing a smaller allowance.
  • Contract length – Phone contracts can last anywhere from one to four years, with varying overall costs. Think about how long you’re happy to be tied into a contract, and how long you can pay for it.
  • Network – Different networks come with different perks – whether that’s the best coverage, the fastest 5G, exclusive deals, or simply the most straightforward, low-cost plans.

Compare mobile deals by network

O2’s great for freebies. EE excels for speeds and coverage. Three’s roaming scheme stands out from the crowd.

And the likes of giffgaff and iD Mobile are great choices if you need a cheap SIM-only deal that’ll get you generous allowances for not much outlay.

But which one’s right for you? If you’re not sure, head to our network pages.

Here we take a look at all the major networks’ key points of comparison, to arm you with all the information you need to make an informed buying decision:

Not all mobile phone contracts are created equal. But whether you want to find deals with no upfront cost, or you need a hefty data allowance we’ll have one that’ll meet your needs.

And if you just want a cheap phone deal, we can help you with that too.

Contract phones

Traditional phone-and-SIM bundled contracts are the most popular way to buy a new handset.

That's because they let you spread the cost of your phone over the course of your contract term.

You may be required to pay an upfront charge on some contracts.

But that’s still much easier to find than the £1,000 cost of buying the latest phones off-contract and SIM-free.

Phone deals with no upfront cost

If you’ve not got the cash to hand to pay an upfront charge, so-called ‘free phone deals’ are a good bet. But be aware: your monthly premium will be higher than if you paid something up front.

Phone deals for bad credit

All mobile contracts require a credit check – so if you have a poor credit history, you might struggle to get accepted on a plan.

Have a look through our page of phone deals for bad credit, and we’ll nudge you in the right direction, whatever your financial history.

Cheap phone deals

If you don’t need much data, or don’t mind if the phone you’re buying doesn’t have the very latest features, you can make real savings.

You can also cut your outgoings by choosing a budget network, such as iD Mobile or Giffgaff.

You'll also want to look out for time-limited promotions, such as flash sales or Black Friday, which often feature deals that trim hundreds of pounds off the cost of select contracts.

Refurbished phone deals and nearly new phone deals

A refurbished phone is a handset that’s been returned to the retailer or network and has been repaired and cleaned and offered for resale. A nearly new phone is similar.

The only difference is that it’s been returned by the customer during the 20-30-day cooling-off period after they bought their phone. So it’s effectively as good as new.

If you don’t mind owning a phone that’s not brand new, refurbished phones and nearly new phones can be a great way of saving money.

And they’ll come with a full guarantee too, so you buy with confidence that you’ve covered if faults arise.

12-month contracts

There’s no need to be locked into a contract for a long time. You can get a mobile contract deal that lasts just 12 months.

It does mean higher monthly bills, but you usually pay the same – or less – overall, compared to a two-year plan. And it’s worth it for that extra touch of flexibility.

You can also get 12-month SIM-only plans. They usually come with cheaper monthly costs than one-month deals from the same network – and may come with extra goodies and benefits too, such as reward schemes.

It’s a great way to save money on a SIM plan, if you’re happy to stay on the same tariff for a year.

iPhone deals

From the very affordable iPhone SE to the high-end Pro Max models, we compare deals for all the best-selling iPhones on all the major networks.

Samsung Galaxy phone deals

Need the latest Samsung Galaxy phone? Happy with an older model? We’ve got deals for all the most popular models, from Ultra flagships, to the innovative Fold and Flip handsets, to the wallet-friendly Galaxy A range.

Compare phone cashback offers and free gifts

Sony PlayStation 4

Cashback phone deals allow you to claim back some of the money you spent on your contract. They can be a good way to save money.

But be aware that they come with a host of conditions that you’ll have to abide by to claim back your cash.

Free gifts available with phone contracts typically include high-street vouchers, Amazon Gift Cards and smartwatches.

Pay monthly vs SIM-only

Pay monthly contracts give you a handset. Each month, your bill pays for both the allowance on your SIM and the cost of the phone.

SIM-only plans, on the other hand, just give you a SIM to put in a phone of your choice. That’s ideal if you already have a phone you can use, or if you’d rather buy one outright.

But which is best? That depends on your needs and your budget!

Pros of pay-monthly phone contracts

  • Great if you don’t have a phone or want a new one
  • Often come with additional benefits that SIM-only customers may not get
  • Low upfront costs
  • Hassle-free – all your mobile stuff is covered in one contract
  • May help build your credit score

Pros of SIM-only plans

  • Great if you already have a phone, or want to buy outright
  • You can get a new phone whenever you want
  • Lots of choice over network and allowance
  • If you pick a 30-day deal, you can change it whenever you want
  • Cheaper monthly bills
  • Deals available with no credit check
