SIM only deals include minutes, texts and mobile data. SIM only plans are perfect if you’re happy with your current phone or tablet
and just need a SIM only deal for your device. As you will only be paying for the SIM contract, you’ll be saving money on the cost of
the phone or tablet. We have one-month and 12-month pay monthly SIMs available, with a range of plans to choose from. We also
have Pay As You Go SIMs, mobile broadband and tablet SIMs for getting data on the move.
If you’re travelling to one of our 18 Feel At Home
destinations, you can enjoy mobile roaming at no extra cost.
This lets you use your monthly allowance to call and text back
to the UK, or use data abroad just as you would in the UK.
Please note Feel At Home does not work with Three Essential plans. If you choose to go for Pay As You Go, our
rates are the UK’s lowest. It’s just 3p per minute, 2p per text
and 1p per MB of data. These prices remain the same no
matter how frequently or infrequently you top-up, making it
even easier to keep track of how much you’re paying for your
usage. And whether you need a Standard, Micro or Nano
SIM, the SIM is delivered within a few working days ready for
any unlocked device.

Useful SIM information.
What is SIM only?
SIM only is a SIM that doesn’t come with a phone or tablet but includes calls, text and data. It is a SIM that allows you to pay for what you use. If you are
happy with your current phone or tablet and are not looking to
get a new one, a SIM only contract is a great option as you’ll
be saving money by going for a plan that only includes your
required usage. If you get SIM only, it will work on any phone
or tablet as long as they are unlocked or on the network you
want to use the SIM on. If you get a SIM only deal, the
contract time is usually shorter which means you have the
flexibility to change plans more often.
What to do with your old SIM.
Before you dispose of your old SIM, make sure anything that
is saved on your SIM is backed up. This could be anything
from phone contacts to text messages. Once you’ve got
everything that was saved on your SIM, you should then cut
up/remove the gold foil on your SIM. This prevents the SIM
from working, which then makes it safe to throw away. Once
you’re happy with it, you can throw the SIM away.
How to keep your existing number.
You can keep your existing phone number if you're
switching from another provider. It’s really easy to do so too.
All you need to do is ask your current network for your PAC
(porting authorisation code) via their site or by calling them.
You can follow the step-by- step process on our bringing
your number to Three guide. The PAC code is given for free
and is usually given within 24 hours. Once the PAC has been
received, you then need to fill in the number moving form on
Three and depending on the time you put through the
request, your number can be ported the very next day
Which SIM Size do I need?
There are three SIM sizes to choose from: Standard SIM,
Micro SIM and Nano SIM. Most newer phones take a Nano
SIM, while the majority of older phones take a Micro SIM.
Some non-smartphones do still take a Standard SIM, though.
Check the box or manual of your phone to see which SIM you
need. Alternatively, you can check the SIM tray to see which
SIM size is needed.
