Pay As You Go

Pay As You Go SIM deals are perfect if you're not in the market for a new phone and want to be free from monthly payments. With a Pay As You Go SIM only deal, you just need to insert your new SIM card into your current device, top up and go.

There's no minimum term, monthly bills or contracts involved when you choose an iD Pay As You Go SIM. Cheaper than standard mobile contracts where you also pay for a new handset, it's the ideal option if you're happy with your current smartphone and want a flexible way to make calls, send texts and update social media.

Credit checks are not required with Pay As You Go SIM cards either, and with iD Mobile you're free to top up as little or as much as you want, whenever you want.

Hardly use your device? Just add £10 to your SIM every two months. Find yourself in need of more data one week? Add more credit, and roam at your leisure.

All iD Mobile Pay As You Go customers enjoy speedy 4G as standard, and can choose to add credit to their SIM directly or buy a bundle. Bundles are perfect if you tend to use the same amount of data, texts and minutes every month and can become reoccurring if you wish - removing the hassle of topping up every month.

If you decide to add credit to your Pay As You Go SIM, you can use it as you please or even buy a bundle at a later date.
