Built from the ground up for kids to use with their adults, Mind Yeti on preferred mobile devices gives kids and parents the most accessible way to practice 70+ mindfulness sessions wherever their summer adventures take them, with or without access to Wi-Fi with the new “Offline Play” mode.

Built from the ground up for kids to use with their adults, Mind Yeti on preferred mobile devices gives kids and parents the most accessible way to practice 70+ mindfulness sessions wherever their summer adventures take them, with or without access to Wi-Fi with the new “Offline Play” mode. In the continental United States, where we experience 14 to 16 hours of sunlight at the peak of summer, tackling the normal bedtime routine with children can be especially challenging. Described by one happy parent as “bedtime gold,” the newly released “Sleep” sessions mean that putting the kids to bed when it’s still light outside doesn’t have to be so daunting.

Features include:

NEW – Offline Play—No Wi-Fi, no problem NEW – Go to Sleep sessions: Balloon Drift Off—Put your day in a hot-air balloon and let it drift off Good Night, Friends—Settle in for sleep by wishing your friends good nightNEW – My Favorites Playlist: Add a favorite session to your playlist—use offline or onlineGuided sessions to use in specific Mind Yeti™Moments throughout the day Focus, Calm, Get Along, Reset, Create, Go to SleepMind Yeti ™ Power Portal, where kids can discover skills and power up their “Yeti Powers”: Breath, Thought, Feelings, Senses, Body, Gratitude, KindnessThe ability to mark favorite sessions to come back to later Tips, tricks and resources for adults to support the kids in their life Closed captioning

Since launching in 2016 for desktops and piloted in schools across the country, Mind Yeti is currently being used by over 500,000 kids and adults. Mind Yeti’s groundbreaking approach to mindfulness has zeroed in on the importance of meeting kids where they are, including creating a unique language that encourages open and honest dialog around feelings and self-acceptance. Mind Yeti helps kids “settle the hubbub” by giving them the tools to calm and focus themselves. It also helps them focus on positive attitudes and behaviors like practicing gratitude and kindness.

“The beauty of Mind Yeti is that it’s based on a growing body of compelling research on the benefits of mindfulness with kids. We’re already hearing from families about how it’s helping kids with anxiety focus and sleep,” said Mia Doces, Committee for Children’s director of New Mission Ventures. “Now, Mind Yeti for your mobile phone is a wonderful way to take mindfulness with you anywhere this summer, either at the campsite before bed or on the road or in the air.”

Interest in mindfulness has grown in recent years, with researchers examining the benefits of mindfulness and mindfulness training. Researchers have examined the role of mindfulness and psychological health in both adults and children and have found mindfulness to be related to well-being, and, linked to lower rates of emotional distress, including anxiety and depression (Brown & Ryan, 2003; Lawlor, Schonert-Reichl, Gadermann, & Zumbo, 2014). In addition, researchers have examined the benefits of mindfulness training for children and have discovered improvements across social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes for children post mindfulness practice (for reviews see Burke, 2010: Greenberg & Harris, 2012; Harnett & Dawe, 2012; Meiklejohn et al., 2012; Zoogman, Godlbergh, Hoyt, & Miller, 2014).

Survey Highlights SRW Deployment Challenges and Need for Greater Education in Emerging IoT Applications

“The consistent ranking of smartphones and tablets as the most innovative technologies might suggest limited knowledge of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies beyond the consumer electronics space. There is a need for greater education on how SRW solutions can be used in more advanced and valuable ways, such as asset tracking, indoor location, and wireless sensor networking, all the while aligning with the existing infrastructure,” says Andrew Zignani, Senior Analyst at ABI Research.

“The consistent ranking of smartphones and tablets as the most innovative technologies might suggest limited knowledge of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies beyond the consumer electronics space. There is a need for greater education on how SRW solutions can be used in more advanced and valuable ways, such as asset tracking, indoor location, and wireless sensor networking, all the while aligning with the existing infrastructure,” says Andrew Zignani, Senior Analyst at ABI Research.

The survey demonstrates a growing shift toward connecting manufacturing equipment/devices and/or systems to the IS/IT network for remote monitoring using SRW solutions, with 85% currently deploying Wi-Fi and 75% deploying Bluetooth. While less than one third of companies surveyed deploy 802.15.4 solutions, more than 44% plan to deploy the technology in the future. This signifies potential growth for ZigBee, WirelessHART, and other mesh solutions in this space.

Organizations can leverage smartphones, tablets, and smart glasses as human-machine-interfaces to monitor and configure machines wirelessly. Alternatively, a more elaborate mesh network can transmit data to a central gateway and control system. Wireless devices save time by reducing the need for manual measurements. They also eliminate expensive human-machine interface (HMI) equipment, give workers greater flexibility, increase safety, and are ideal for hard-to-reach installations and hazardous environments.

In healthcare environments, survey respondents see mobile devices and consumer wearables as the main transformative technologies over the next five years. In contrast, respondents consider clinical-grade wearables, remote monitoring, home health monitoring, and asset tracking to be lower priority innovations, with only 2% seeing asset and resource tracking as the most important technology transformation. This is despite equipment misplacements being a key burden in healthcare environments.

Respondents cite the main SRW technology adoption barrier for healthcare, manufacturing, and retail environments to be aligning the technologies with the existing framework. Asset tracking and indoor location vendors are beginning to note this friction and trying to make it easier for infrastructure teams to buy into the idea by leveraging existing Bluetooth or Wi-Fi infrastructure, enabling much simpler deployment and reducing the burden on already constrained IT resources.

These findings are from ABI Research’s Industry Survey: Transformative Technology Adoption and Attitudes – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Short-Range Wireless report. This report is part of the company’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & Wireless Connectivity service, which includes research, data, and analyst insights.

BlackBerry KEYone has been priced at Rs. 39,990 in India. It comes in Limited Edition Black color and will be available exclusively on Amazon India starting from August 8th.

SIM only deals: the best plans in August 2017

A SIM only deal is a mobile phone plan that offers calls, texts and data in return for a monthly fee, but does not come bundled with a phone. Leaving the phone out of the equation means SIM only deals can be much cheaper than general mobile phone deals which makes them ideal if you already have a handset or are eyeing up SIM-free phones.

A SIM only deal is a mobile phone plan that offers calls, texts and data in return for a monthly fee, but does not come bundled with a phone. Leaving the phone out of the equation means SIM only deals can be much cheaper than general mobile phone deals which makes them ideal if you already have a handset or are eyeing up SIM-free phones.

Our handy price comparison tool will help you filter through and compare all of the UK’s available SIM only deals so that you can zero-in on the one that’s right for you. Prices start from £3.99 per month for a basic plan while GiffGaff’s “unlimited everything” goodbag can be had from around £20 if you’re a power user.

Discover the best SIM-free phones your money can buy

Underneath our tool you’ll find our top 10 recommendations for the best value SIM only deals currently available, whatever your needs – ideal if you’re thinking to team one up with a brilliant Black Friday handset purchase. And if you’re still unsure whether SIM-only is the route for you, our expert advice will help you decide – our all knowing FAQ includes tips on switching your number, the networks that offer free gifts and answers to a host of other questions.

The best SIM only deals of the week are:

We’ve run the figures and plucked out the very best sim only deals available this month. Whether you’re after the cheapest plan possible, want to dig out the best value big data SIM plan or just want an all-round great deal but don’t know how much to spend, you’ll find a recommendation just for you.

1. The absolute cheapest SIM only deal out there

iD Mobile | 30-day contract | 500MB data | 500 minutes | 5000 texts | £3.99 per month
This is the cheapest readily available SIM only deal currently available in the UK. If you just need to keep a phone up and running for occasional use, this is a good option. 500MB data is doubled from last month, but it’s still not much data so you’d be advised to either keep mobile data switched off or be careful what apps are updating in the background. BUT WAIT, CHECK OUT THE NEXT DEAL FIRST!

View this SIM only deal at iD/Carphone Warehouse

2. The best 1GB+ SIM only deal

iD | 30-day contract | 1.5GB data | 500 minutes | 5000 texts | £5 per month
If you’re looking for a super cheap SIM only deal but don’t want to limit yourself too much with data, 1.5GB for £5 is the best option out there right now. Especially given how freely wi-fi is available outside of the home nowadays. You’ll still be able to access emails, browse the net and casually check Facebook and stay under the limit. And as it’s a 30-day SIM only deal, you can change your mind and cancel at any time.

3. The best 2GB-4GB SIM only deal

Three | 12 month contract | 4GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £9 per month
Leading the way when it comes to what the major networks can offer, Three SIM only deals are extremely attractive. If you’re prone to viewing a few YouTube videos away from Wi-Fi, this 4GB option may suit you better. If you want a rolling monthly deal and 3GB’s enough, then this iD SIM for £8pm may suit better.

4. The best 6GB-8GB SIM only deal

Three | 12-month contract | 8GB data | 600 minutes | Unlimited texts | £12 per month
If you can get by with less data, the deals above are better value. But if 8GB is what you need then this is the best deal – and it just got £2pm cheaper! Handily, you can use your allowances abroad and you can even use your data to create your own personal hotspot for using laptops and tablets away from Wi-Fi.

5. The best 10GB-16GB SIM only deal

Three | 12-month contract | 12GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £15 per month
You may be getting a bit sick and tired of seeing that 3 logo by now, but the truth is that the numerical network is leading the way on SIM only at the moment – especially now that O2’s Summer Sale is over. You can almost feel the nights getting shorter! And this deal gives £15 cashback, too.

View this Three SIM only deal from Buymobiles

6. The best 20GB-30GB SIM only deal

Vodafone | 12-month contract | 20GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £13.75 per month (after cashback)
This is an impeccable deal from Mobiles.co.uk. For less than an effective £15 a month (thanks to £99 cashback), you get a massive 20GB of data and can choose between free access to Sky Sports mobile, Now TV or Spotify Premium. You can use your allowances abroad for free in 50 countries too!

View this 20GB Vodafone SIM only deal available from Mobiles.co.uk

7. The best SIM only deal for unlimited data

Three | 12-month contract | Unlimited data | Unlimited texts | 200 minutes | £24 per month
Sometimes, you’ve just gotta have all the data. Netflix marathons, epic Pokemon Go quests, constant Spotify tunes, this all you can eat data bundle is ideal for the serious mobile user who never needs to worry about poxy thing like data allowances or wi-fi. Plus you’ll get £35 cashback. Giffgaff can do unlimited for only £20 a month, but once you’ve used 6GB of data each month, it cuts your speeds down from 4G.

Get this unlimited data Three deal from Buymobiles

8. The best SIM only deal on EE

12-month contract | 2GB data | 1000 mins | Unlimited texts | £9.75 per month (after cashback)
EE is never going to be the cheapest way to get a SIM for your unlocked handset, but Mobiles.co.uk is trying to alter that received wisdom with big cashback offers. So if you want the fastest 4G speeds in the UK then this deal gives you 2GB of data, unlimited texts, 1000 minute call allowance and a tasty £98.88 cashback by redemption.

View this cheapest SIM only deal on EE from Mobiles.co.uk

9. Best O2 SIM only deal

12-month contract | 10GB data | Unlimited mins and texts | £19 per month
Since O2’s Summer Sale ended on SIM only (so soon!), the network is nowhere near competing on the best SIM only prices. But if you’ve got loyalty to O2 or like the idea of its Priority rewards for cheap coffees and lunches and first dibs on gig tickets, then this 10GB SIM is probably the best value plan. Just make sure you check out the best of the other networks first.

View this SIM only deal from O2

10. Best 3 SIM only deal

12-month contract | 30GB data | 600 minutes minutes | Unlimited texts | £18 per month
Three is often the go-to network for big data deals and the cheapest of the big networks for a 30GB SIM only deal just got £1 a month cheaper. It’s a shame they’re only sticking 600 minutes in instead of unlimited, but that should be enough for most users, especially when you can use data-driven apps like WhatsApp to make calls instead.

Should I go SIM only?

If you a) want to save some money; b) don’t want to be tied into a lengthy contract; or c) both of the above, then SIM only is well worth considering. In fact, you’re probably one of two people if your thoughts are indeed turning to SIM only:

You’re coming to the end of your contract and your network is calling you a million times a day to get you to upgrade. Well if your phone is dying a death or you just fancy a change, head to our best mobile phones deal page to see what bargains are lurking, but otherwise going SIM only on your current phone is a no-brainer. You’ll wind up paying much less than you are under contract, and you can stick to a rolling 30 day contract so that if your circumstances change, you can get out of the arrangement tout suite.

It’s time for a shiny new smartphone and you want to get the best value humanly possible. You’ll have to find a few hundred quid up front for the handset (be sure to check our SIM free comparison chart) but box clever and you’ll end up paying less over the next 24 months (see below). Plus, if you’re a commitment-phobe, most SIM-only plans don’t require you to sign up for two years like you would with a normal contract.

Is SIM only cheaper than contract?

It certainly can be. In fact, teaming a SIM only plan with a standalone handset could save you a packet. Take the new Samsung Galaxy S8 as a prime example. You’ll have to pay at least £689 upfront, but combine that with iD’s fiver a month 1.5GB deal and you’ll end up paying £809 over two years – that’s over £100 cheaper than the cheapest 1GB contract from a major network.

Not all the savings you can make are as extravagant, and on big data it’s frequently more cost effective to dive into a contract instead. But if you can afford to splash a few hundred pounds up front then the savings over the next couple of years could well be worth it – especially if you can bag a bargain on Black Friday 2017.

Is my phone unlocked – can I use a new SIM in it?

The times have passed since most phones were locked to a network and you had to pay a dodgy backstreet ‘engineer’ to unlock it. Nowadays, it’s standard practice for networks to let you use whatever SIM you want in the phone as soon as you’ve paid up the original contract (or earlier if you pay them a fee) – and Three ships all its handsets unlocked from the outset.

The exception, alas, is Apple iPhones. They’re generally sold locked to the original network that you purchase them with for the life of the handset. Very frustrating if you’re looking for a tasty SIM only deal once your 24 month sentence is up.

The good news is that your iPhone (or any other mobile before the end of your contract) can be unlocked – the bad news is that most networks make you pay for the privilege. Insert a friend or family member’s SIM into your phone to see whether it’s already unlocked and, if it isn’t, look for your network below to see how to cut ties with them:

EE Once six months have gone by on your contract, you can call EE on 0800 956 6000 and pay them £8.99 to unlock your phone. It says it will take around 10 days to complete. PAYG phones can be unlocked for free.O2 As long as you don’t own a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus (they can’t be unlocked until you’ve paid off your contract), you can unlock any O2 phone – including iPhones – for free if you’re on a pay monthly contract. PAYG customers have to pay £15.Three Fear not, all phones on Three are unlocked as standard. Shove whatever SIM you like in there, it will work a treat.Vodafone The red network doesn’t quite get the same marks as Three, as your phone will be locked to them on arrival. But they have made unlocking handsets absolutely free within 10 days of your request.

What SIM card size do I need?

There are three sizes of SIM card that you can get for your phone, and the one you need will depend on your handset. It’s been a while since the traditional, so-called standard SIM (15x25mm) has genuinely been the staple in new phones. Instead, any phone you’ve bought within the last five or so years is much more likely to require a micro (12x15mm) or nano (8.8×12.3mm) SIM – the iPhone 5 was Apple’s first mobile with a nano SIM, while Samsung began using the smallest size in its Galaxy S6.

Before you purchase your new SIM, double-check the manufacturer’s website to see what size you require. And if you’re simply not sure, most networks now simply send out a triple SIM, so you’ll get one of each size.

How do I keep my old number?

Ever heard of PAC codes and wondered what a classic 80s arcade game had to do with telephone numbers? It actually stands for Porting Authorisation Code, and it’s the set of digits that you need to grab from your old network to let you transfer over your existing mobile number. If you’re on one of the major networks, you can see what phone number you can contact them on here:

EE 07953 966 250O2 0344 8090202Vodafone 03333 040 191Three 0333 300 3333ID 0333 003 7777GiffGaff 43431 from your handsetVirgin 0345 6000 789BT 0800 800 150Tesco 0345 301 4455Sky 03300 412 524Asda 0800 079 2732

If you want to grab a bargain SIM only plan above, but it’s on your existing network then your network won’t release a PAC code and you’ll be forced to take a new phone number.

At least you would have, if it wasn’t for this clever (if convoluted) work-around. You have to order a free pay-as-you-go SIM from another network. Once you have it, you can tell your old network that you’re moving and they’ll give you that precious PAC code. Then, once your number is registered to the substitute network, simply get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they’ll move your number to your new contract. Simple – kind of!

What contract length should I get?

Unlike with a contract, there’s a lot more flexibility available when it comes to how long your SIM only plan will last. Two year commitments are virtually unheard of, with the norm being either one year or rolling one month contracts for ultimate flexibility. You can often get better prices if you tie yourself in for 12 months, especially on larger data tariffs. But sticking to one month at a time means that you can effectively hand pick a new plan to suit you every 30 days or so.

How much data do I need?

Because you can change your plan up more regularly than a normal, lengthier contract, it’s less crucial to get this nailed from the start. But if you’re thinking of grabbing a 12-monther or just put a personal pride on getting things right first time, then we’ll help you pick out the sweet spot of data for you.

Firstly, check your phone to see how much data you’ve been using to date, and whether you have the tendency to use more than your current allowance every month. Then, if you’re still unsure, check out our guidance:

0-1GB Tiny amounts of data on SIM only deals could be a blessing or a curse. If you’re putting it in a rarely used phone that will scarcely be away from wi-fi then you’re quids in. But if you end up with one because your head’s turned by the incredible price, then you could end up paying more if you continually go over your allowance.2-3GB For anybody who needs data for little more than the occasional Google Maps route planning, 2GB and 3GB plans come cheap and give you much more freedom to check the football scores and scroll Facebook away from the wi-fi without danger.4-8GB If you can’t leave the house without having a music streaming service like Spotify pouring into your ears, then it might be worth paying for some extra GBs of data.10-16GB This is a significant amount of data and some networks offer it for a very appetising price. Whether streaming music, downloading podcasts, watching social media videos, or all three is your thing – you should be covered.20-30GB Only smartphone junkies that need regular (and hefty) data fixes need bother with this avalanche of GBs. You’ll be able to rinse Netflix, Spotify and online games without too much fear of topping out.Unlimited Maybe it’s because you use remarkable amounts of data. Maybe it’s because you simply don’t want to keep checking how much data you’ve used every month. Whatever your reason to go unlimited, you have only two choices when it comes to network: Three or GiffGaff.

Do I need unlimited calls and texts?

Call it practicality, call it greediness, call it what you want – it’s human nature to want ‘unlimited’ anything if offered. But you should think genuinely about whether you really need it in a world where the likes of WhatsApp and Skype let you call and text for free over wi-fi or 4G. If you decide that a few thousand monthly minutes and texts should do you, then you could shave off some cash from your bill.

What’s the best mobile network for SIM only?

While EE, O2, Vodafone and Three are generally considered the major four networks for contract plans, when it comes to SIM only there are some other key players are well worth a look. See what we think of them below, and whether you’ll get any free perks to help persuade you to sign up. Plus, we’ll tell you about a couple of other SIM sellers that might be able to wrangle you an even better deal.


EE SIM only deals

If you want fast and furious 4G, then your choice has to be an EE SIM only deal. Its speeds are around 50% faster than the other major networks, which is really noticeable if you like watching films or football on the move. And EE gives you three free months of BT Sport, as well as six months of Apple Music.

Vodafone SIM only deals

Vodafone seems to have been around since mobile phones were cumbersome bricks, but they remain a major player. Look out for a Red Entertainment tariff, which gives you your choice of a NOW TV Entertainment Pass, Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile subscription.

Three SIM only deals

Three is still the only network to offer unlimited data and it often features unbeatable deals on other big data plans – that makes them a natural choice of many a data hungry smartphone addict. But it’s a bit shy on the free promotions stuff, and 4G coverage isn’t as strong as the other networks.

BT SIM only deals

That’s unless you’re already a BT broadband customer, in which case you get some really favourable prices – a fiver less than the rest of the hoi polloi. Plus you get to choose an Amazon or iTunes voucher, the value of which depends on how much data you’re in for.

giffgaff SIM only deals

GiffGaff is very hard to beat on price – if you want to grab a cheap SIM card deal, this could be your best option. You can’t argue with £5 a month. The cheap deals don’t give you much of an allowance to play with, but if you just want to keep your phone going and available to use for calls and texts with the occasional bit of internet use outside of your home WiFi, GiffGaff is a strong offering. Look out for the T&Cs though as some of the big data deals throttle the speed after a few gig.

Virgin Mobile SIM only deals

Virgin Mobile has been going for a long time, and some of its SIM only deals are particularly attractive. They’re all one-month rolling contracts, so you can stop paying at any time if you so wish, giving you flexibility if you want to change your plan or go for a phone-inclusive deal down the line. Prices start from as little as £6 a month.

Tesco Mobile SIM only deals

The UK’s biggest supermarket has been known to offer competetive – if not stellar – SIM only deals, with low data prices starting around the £6 a month mark. Where it get’s really interesting is if you download the Xtras app to an Android phone: you’ll save £3 on your monthly bill, but you will have to see adverts every time you unlock your handset.

TalkTalk SIM only deals

TalkTalk is a telecoms company that also offers home phone, broadband and TV packages, so the best deals can be had if you sign up for more than one service. However, at the time of writing the cheapest deal is £3.95 per month for an admittedly measly 250MB of data. Better yet, for just £7.75 you can get 2.1GB.

Plusnet SIM only deals

Plusnet might be more well known for its broadband deals, but it’s also keen to push some very cheap 30-day SIM only deals. You don’t have to be a Plusnet customer, although you could get double the data on some of these SIM only deals if you are. You don’t have to worry about signal either as Plusnet uses EE’s network that covers 99% of the UK. Plusnet’s latest cheap SIM only deals start at just £5 a month, check them out via the link below.

Freedom Pop SIM only deals

Freedom Pop is trying something new – offering contracts for FREE. The catch being that you only pay if you do over the allowances of your bundle or opt for a larger deal. The prices for doing so vary, so be sure to take a look at the small print. It seems that they feature a different offer each week, but seeing as you can cancel at any time, they may be worth a look.

Which networks have coverage in my area?

It’s one of life’s (many) little frustrations – you sign up with a network, get your SIM up and running and then discover that you get no coverage at all in your house. Well this little pain in the neck can be avoided by using the dedicated coverage checker that most networks provide. Enter your postcode and you’ll see whether your address has 2G (calls, texts and email), 3G (the basics plus picture messaging and faster web browsing) and 4G (all the powers of 3G, plus faster downloads, online gaming and media streaming) coverage.

We’ve provided links below to all the available coverage checkers on multiple networks. We’d advise not only checking coverage in your home, but also work, school, uni, favourite pubs and so on. Anywhere where you spend time on a regular basis really.

The best Three SIM only deals in August 2017

The Three network has long been the go-to destination if you’re looking for shedloads of data – it’s still the only major player offering truly unlimited (and unrestricted) data packages.

The Three network has long been the go-to destination if you’re looking for shedloads of data – it’s still the only major player offering truly unlimited (and unrestricted) data packages. And time and again now it comes up with superb SIM only deals that we just have to shout about.

If you’ve landed on this page, we imagine you’ve already figured out that combining a SIM only plan with a SIM free phone or your beloved existing handset can be a brilliant way to save cash. And if it is big data that you crave, Three’s £18 tariff for 30GB is unparalleled by the likes of Vodafone, EE or O2.

Scroll down to our comparison tool to pick out your ideal Three SIM only deal – whether you need it now, or to match up with a Black Friday bargain. And if you’re not yet sold on the Three network or are still unsure about how going SIM only works, keep scrolling down to our FAQ.


Is Three the best mobile network for me?

As we’ve said above, there are two very good reasons why you should consider Three for SIM only. The first is the price tag – it often gets the jump on the other ‘Big 4’ networks when it comes to its SIM card pricing. And the second is if you like a plan with oodles of data.

But if you’re looking for a network that’s going to send freebies and rewards to your inbox every week, you’ve come to the wrong place. Three doesn’t bother with subscriptions or gifts – it channels its energies on ensuring you get the cheapest bill at the end of the month.

Three’s Essential and Advanced plans

Grab a Three SIM, and you’ll be on one of two plans:

Three Essential Plans
The cheapest Three SIM only deals are on the Essential plan, and this will be completely fine for most people. It lacks a handful of benefits that you get with Advanced, but you still get 4G coverage, unlimited texts and use of Wi-Fi on the London Underground. Unless you’re a keen globetrotter or need to tether, stick to the bare Essentials.

Three Advanced Plans
Make the jump to an Advanced Plan and make yourself comfortable with the network’s Feel At Home extra – unlimited use of your data, calls and texts in 60 other countries, including the US and Australia. Go Binge let’s you stream Netflix, TVPlayer, Deezer and SoundCloud away from Wi-Fi without eating into your data allowance. Plus, you can use your phone as a Personal Hotspot from which to tether your laptop or tablet.

Are Three SIM only deals cheaper than contract?

If you’re at the end of your contract or blagged a friend’s old unlocked phone, then grabbing a Three SIM card is undeniably cost effective. They start at less than £10 a month.

But if you’re starting afresh with a new phone, you get no discernible benefit from heading down the handset and SIM only combo road with Three. Whether you’re after an iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S8 or something cheaper, the deals you can get by simply grabbing a normal two year tariff are more reasonable in the long run. You can head to our mobile phone deals page to compare contract prices of the latest, greatest handsets around.

Can I keep my old number?

Give your current network a call (on one of the below numbers), ask for your PAC – short for Porting Authorisation Code – give it to Three and they’ll gladly transfer over your old telephone number. So no need to send out a text to your entire contacts list with a new number:

EE 07953 966 250O2 0344 8090202Vodafone 03333 040 191ID 0333 003 7777GiffGaff 43431 from your handsetVirgin 0345 6000 789BT 0800 800 150Tesco 0345 301 4455Sky 03300 412 524Asda 0800 079 2732

Easy, right? But not so easy if you were already on Three and then decided to go for one of the deals in our comparison chart that isn’t directly with Three. Three won’t give you a PAC in this situation, so instead you’ll have to grab the cheapest free pay-as-you-go SIM you can find from another network (e.g. O2, EE, iD, etc) and give them your PAC code from Three. Once your number has transferred to the substitute network, call them for a second PAC. Then you can give this to Three and continue using that same telephone number. A convoluted but handy workaround.

Is my phone unlocked – can I use a Three SIM in it?

If Three is where your heart is, then you may already know that it ships all of its phones completely unlocked. That means you can put a SIM card from any network in your handset and you’re good to go.

Unfortunately, not all networks are as profligate in this regard. Some networks require you to pay to unlock your mobile and Apple iPhones are generally locked completely to the network they were originally sold with. Here’s how the other major networks operate:

EE Get through the first six months of your contract, call EE on 0800 956 6000 and pay them £8.99 and it’ll unlock your phone. It says it will take around 10 days to complete. PAYG phones can be unlocked for free.O2 You can unlock any O2 phone for free if you’re on a pay monthly contract. PAYG customers have to pay £15. That’s unless your phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, in which case you’ll have to wait until the end of your contract before it can be unlocked.Vodafone Vodafone is similar to Three. It will unlock your handset for free, but you have to give them a call to do so. From there, it’s likely to take 10 days before you can use another network’s SIM in your phone.

What SIM card size do I need?

We hate to sound glib (we really do), but it doesn’t really matter if you’re moving to Three. Whatever plan you choose, you’ll receive a ‘trio-sim’. So whether your phone takes a micro SIM, nano SIM or an old-school standard SIM, you’re covered.

What contract length should I get?

Three gives you the choice between signing up for a whole year, or paying a little more for 1 month at a time. It may cost you a few quid extra per month, but if you know that you’ll only need use of your new SIM for a few months, it should save you plenty in the long run.

How much phone data do I need?

If you’re sniffing around Three, there’s a good chance that you’ve already made up your mind and want to go straight for the jugular – 30GB or unlimited data.

But if you’re still trying to make up your mind, and have no notion of exactly how much data you’ll really need per month, then our quick guide below will help. Alternatively, why not grab a big data deal for one month, see how much data you use, and then downsize after that…?

500MB-2GB If you just need a very cheap free SIM to shove in your phone and barely use data away from WI-FI, then we’re not going to persuade you otherwise. But bear in mind that Three’s 4GB tariffs can often be as cheap, or just a couple pounds more a month.4-8GB This is a solid wedge of data that you should be able to bag for a reasonable monthly rate. A good amount if you want to safely use Google Maps, stream Spotify and update your downloads without going over your limit.12-20GB Although unlimited data sounds very attractive on paper, ask yourself whether you really need it. And check your current usage – you may be surprised how far you can get with 12-20GB. It’s a huge allowance that allows for loads of downloading, social media browsing and a few films’ worth of streaming per month.30GB At the risk of repeating ourselves, this is Three’s sweet spot – whether you’re going SIM only or contract. It’s more data than most people will know what to do with, but the prices can be really reasonable. Far cheaper than going unlimited.Unlimited If you’ve already made up your mind about getting unlimited, we doubt there’s much we can say to change your mind. And it’s certainly a liberating feeling to have the freedom of unlimited data. But prices can get really expensive, so we’d urge you only to sign up if you really need it.

Should I get unlimited calls and texts?

Unlimited texts are a given with Three, regardless of whether you get an Essential or Advanced plan. But lots of plans do place restrictions on calls – usually 200 or 600 minutes. If you don’t actually make that many calls from your mobile, then you can bag a cheaper deal by going for one of these. Chatterboxes should pay extra for unlimited minutes or, if you’re going for a big data deal anyway, make use of apps like WhatsApp or the network’s Three inTouch and use data calling.

If you buy a phone after visiting this page, TechRadar will be paid a small commission by the network or reseller you buy from. This money is paid by the site you buy from and thus does not affect the amount you pay for your phone contract. If you go direct to the site you buy from, you would pay the same amount.

Sky broadband plans compared – what broadband speed can I get with Sky?

Even before you start thinking about whether you want to add Sky TV or mobile to your internet package, you’ll need to decide what speed and data usage best suits your household. Consider whether you want to crank up the speed – and price – with a fibre broadband package.

Sky Broadband Unlimited

If you simply want basic broadband for checking your emails and using the web, then Sky’s entry-level Broadband Unlimited deal is one of the cheapest on the market. With download speeds of up to 17Mb (that’s around 2.1MB per second) it may struggle a little with streaming, especially if there are lots of devices trying to use it at once. Sky Broadband Unlimited includes:

Up to 17Mb speedSky Hub routerUnlimited data usageSky Broadband Shield and McAfee security trial

Sky Fibre

You can potentially more than double your speeds by going for Sky Fibre – that’s assuming fibre optic broadband is available on your road. But be warned…you’re limited to use only 25GB of data per month. So you’ll have to be careful to ration the amount of box sets you stream and music you download. Sky Fibre includes:

Up to 38Mb speedSky Hub router25GB per month data limitSky Broadband Shield and McAfee security trial

Sky Fibre Unlimited

The name’s a bit of a giveaway. Take the Sky Fibre package and make the data usage unlimited. It’s quite a big jump in price and you’ll be tied into an 18 month contract, but if you’ve got a data hungry household that are all simultaneously downloading, streaming and browsing, you’ll be glad of the extra speed. Sky Fibre Unlimited includes:

Up to 38Mb speedSky Hub routerUnlimited data usageSky Broadband Shield and McAfee security trial

Sky Fibre Max

This is the daddy of the Sky broadband family. The provider cranks up the speed to up to 76Mb, which could give download speeds of roughly 9.5MB per second. Rapid. Plus it throws in the more powerful Sky Q Hub instead of the regular router. Sky Fibre Max includes:

Up to 76Mb speedSky Q Hub routerUnlimited data usageSky Broadband Shield and McAfee security trial

Can I add any Sky TV packages deals?

When you sign up for Sky broadband, the sales pitch for Sky TV quickly follows. Each comes with a Sky Q box, which lets you record up to 1TB worth of programming – that’s around 500 hours – and you can choose from the following bundles:

Original Sky’s most affordable TV bundle throws in more than 270 channels, including Sky Atlantic, Sky 1 and Sky Living.

Variety If there are kids in the household, an extra tenner bags thousands of on-demand episodes of children’s TV. It takes the channel count to over the 300 mark, with documentary stations like Discovery and National Geographic, as well as two Eurosport channels.

Box Sets If you spend your evenings binging on box sets, Sky’s priciest starter bundle gives you immediate access to more than 350. That’s on top of the 350 channels you’ll get.

Once you’ve chosen your starter bundle, you can begin adding more bespoke services. If you want Sky Sports, you’ll be looking at almost an extra £30, while the suite of Sky Cinema channels is around £20.

What Sky Hub router will I get?

Depending on what Sky broadband plan you go for, you’ll be sent one of two different routers:

Sky Hub The standard wireless Sky Hub router should be good enough to provide a sufficient signal to the household. But it may not quite have the oomph to support a strong signal to every corner of larger houses.

Sky Q Hub It may be a little bit chunkier than the ordinary Sky Hub, but that translates into a more powerful router. If you’re desperate for fast downloads, it connect to 5GHz channels and it has the capacity to connect 64 laptops, tablets, phones and other devices. If you’re hankering for the Sky Q Hub but aren’t intending to go for Sky Fibre Max, you can pay extra to upgrade.

How long will my Sky broadband contract last?

If you go for Sky’s most affordable Broadband Unlimited plan, you’ll get a one year contract. With all of the Fibre packages, you’ll be tied into an 18 month commitment to Sky. You may not wish to be tied into a contract that long, but at least you’ll know what you’ll be paying for longer.

Sky Talk – do I get a Sky phone line?

The price you pay for Sky Broadband also includes Sky Line Rental, which lets you retain your existing home phone number.

You can pay an extra premium for a Sky Talk allowance – for example, Sky Talk Evenings and Weekends allows unlimited calls during those windows (evenings are defined as 7pm-7am), Sky Talk Anytime Extra for as many calls as you wish to UK landlines at any time and Sky Talk International Extra if you have friends or family living overseas.

Do I get Sky email?

If you want it, you’ll be assigned with a Sky Yahoo! Mail account. You can access this email account on any computer, smartphone or tablet – not just your home PC or laptop.

What is Sky WiFi?

As a Sky broadband customer, you’ll get access to unlimited usage of Sky’s wi-fi hotspots that are dotted around the UK. You can connect up to six devices to the thousands of hotspot locations, which include popular coffee and restaurant chains.

What is Sky Broadband Shield?

Access to Sky Broadband Shield is included with every internet plan and adds a layer of security to your online life at home. As well as seeking out malware and phishing scam attempts, the Shield includes parental controls so you can make sure your children aren’t landing on websites they shouldn’t.

For even greater protection, a subscription to Sky broadband also includes a free trial to McAfee Internet Security Suite. But it’s well worth checking out our pick of the best antivirus software on the market before you commit to that.

Sky broadband help and the Switch Squad

There’s a multitude of online guides, help and support on the Sky website, but you can call Sky Help as well to discuss your broadband on 0330-041-4376.

If you’re having difficulty switching to Sky broadband, the company has a dedicated so-called Switch Squad to get you transferred over from your current broadband provider.

To transfer to Sky Broadband now, you can order online at the Sky Shop.

The best EE SIM only deals in August 2017

We can see why a SIM only deal from EE might appeal. If you’ve just come to the end of your mobile phone contract but don’t much fancy ditching your current handset, shoving a free SIM in there is a thrifty alternative to upgrading.

We can see why a SIM only deal from EE might appeal. If you’ve just come to the end of your mobile phone contract but don’t much fancy ditching your current handset, shoving a free SIM in there is a thrifty alternative to upgrading. And EE is the UK network offering the fastest 4G speeds around.

The same goes if you’ve managed to get hold of a bargain SIM free phone or have been gifted a hand-me-down from a friend or family member. Monthly tariffs on EE start at £10.99, and you can pay more to grab extra data allowance. Check out our comparison table below to get a tailor-made EE SIM only deal – handy if you can grab a Black Friday bargain.

And further down the page, we’ll tell you more about what to expect from EE, how to keep hold of your current number and answers to more commonly asked questions.


Is EE a good mobile network?

EE is the most used network in the UK and took home the Best Consumer Network prize at the 2017 Mobile Industry Awards – so pretty good pedigree, we’d say!

The reason EE stands out most however, is its 4G speeds. It’s the fastest network by some distance, and around 50% faster than any of the other three major networks (Vodafone, O2 and 3).

Are EE SIM only deals cheaper than contract?

We don’t want to sound like a politicians but there is no direct answer to this one. Let us sit on the fence by saying, “it can be”.

If you’ve just come to the end of your contract and are perfectly happy with your current mobile, then grabbing a free SIM from EE is undoubtedly cheaper than starting a fresh contract with a brand new phone. Prices start at £131.88 for a 12 months plan.

But EE’s SIM only offers are just a little bit too dear to make them worth combining with a handset purchase. Fore example, if you were to go with the cheapest EE SIM and combine it with the £599 iPhone 7, you’d be paying in excess of £100 more over two years than the cheapest iPhone 7 deals we’ve seen. But again, it may be a different case when the smartphone discounts start dropping on Black Friday 2017.

Can I keep my old number?

You absolutely can and, in most instances, it’s actually really easy. You’ll need to phone up your pre-EE network and ask them for a PAC, or Porting Authorisation Code. Then you need to give that to EE, and they will keep you rolling with your familiar old digits. These are the numbers to call if you’re currently on one of the other major networks:

O2 0344 8090202Vodafone 03333 040 191Three 0333 300 3333ID 0333 003 7777GiffGaff 43431 from your handsetVirgin 0345 6000 789BT 0800 800 150Tesco 0345 301 4455Sky 03300 412 524Asda 0800 079 2732

It’s a little bit less straightforward if you’re already on EE, but have spotted a new EE SIM only deal from a third party company that really appeals. EE won’t give you a PAC, so instead you’ll have to grab the cheapest free pay-as-you-go SIM you can find from another network (e.g. O2, Vodafone, iD, etc) and give them your PAC code from EE. Once your number has transferred to the substitute network, call them for a second PAC. Then you can give this to EE and continue using that same telephone number. Sneaky.

Is my phone unlocked – can I use a new SIM in it?

Pop a friend’s SIM card into your phone. If you immediately get on their network, then you’re in luck – your phone is unlocked and you can go ahead and buy your new SIM card.

Three ships all its handsets unlocked from the outset, but the other networks require at least some effort, and usually some cash, from you (see below). And Apple iPhones are generally locked completely to the network they were originally sold with. So again be prepared to pay to unlock it to EE.

O2 You can unlock any O2 phone for free if you’re on a pay monthly contract. PAYG customers have to pay £15. The only exceptions are the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, for which you’ll have to wait until the end of your contract before they can be unlocked.Three Three phones are all unlocked as soon as they come out of the box. So you can put an EE SIM card in any Three mobile you like without charge and hassle.Vodafone Like Three, Vodafone doesn’t expect you to pay to unlock your handset. But there is a little effort required from you. You’ll need to give them a call and then wait up to 10 days before you can use another network’s SIM.

What SIM card size do I need?

There are three sizes of SIM card that you can get for your phone, and different phones use different sizes. No modern smartphones take the classic standard SIM (15x25mm) anymore. Your phone will almost definitely take either a micro (12x15mm) or nano (8.8×12.3mm) SIM, the latter of which has been used by Apple since the iPhone 5 and Samsung since the Galaxy S6.

But there’s no need to get your knickers in a twist about this one. The networks and third party sellers will let you choose which SIM you need or will simply send out a triple SIM, so you’ll get one of each size. Alternatively, they’ll send you an adapter so you can use the incorrect SIM size in your phone.

What contract length should I get?

If you’ve heard about 1 month contracts on SIM only – or even no contracts at all – we’re afraid you’re bang out of luck with EE. There’s one option and one option only with EE SIM only deals…you’re in it for a full 12 months.

How much phone data do I need?

Unless you’ve only ever had pay-as-you-go phones, you’ve probably already got a pretty decent idea of how many GBs of data you’ll need per month. If you constantly go over your allowance, or have bundles of data to spare a month, then selecting your new EE SIM is a good opportunity to recalibrate. But if you’re still a little unsure, we can give you some guidance below…

1GB Unsurprisingly, going for EE’s minimum amount of data also means its cheapest prices. It should be enough for occasionally using a maps app and checking your email away from Wi-fi, but not a lot else.2-3GB A lot of people go for a little more data, as a couple more quid a month doesn’t seem like a lot in exchange for much more freedom. Keep up-to-date with social media, the football results and news apps in comfort.4-8GB If you frequently download podcasts while out of the house or can’t face the daily commute without Spotify streaming, then it’s worth paying extra for this mid-range of data.10-16GB EE SIM only deals begin to look a lot more reasonable when you get in to this echelon of data allowance, with 12GB plans its sweet spot at the moment. Loads of data for downloading and streaming.20-30GB EE doesn’t bother with unlimited data, but the 30GB a month maximum is still a ridiculous amount of data to play with. You’d have to stream and download a lot of videos to go over your cap.

Should I get unlimited calls and texts?

Unless you go for anything less than a 3GB EE SIM deal, you’ll automatically get unlimited minutes and texts included in the plan. Otherwise, you’re looking at a limit of 1000 minutes for calls. With the reliance on instant messaging these days, 1000 seems like more than enough, but go for one of those 3GB deals if you’re a chatterbox.

How does TechRadar make money from SIM only deals?

If you buy a phone after visiting this page, TechRadar will be paid a small commission by the network or reseller you buy from. This money is paid by the site you buy from and thus does not affect the amount you pay for your phone contract. If you go direct to the site you buy from, you would pay the same amount.

While some sites out there will be paid larger fees for pushing people to specific deals that aren’t necessarily the cheapest, TechRadar will always find you the absolute best value. Trust and integrity is important to us, so if you ever think we’re not displaying the very best deals let us know.

Now you’re in the know, scroll back to the top of the page to get hold of the EE SIM that suits you. And if you’re not sure that EE is the right network for you, then see what the other networks have to offer in our guide to the best SIM only deals.

The best Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deals in August 2017

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is no longer the best handset in the world (that honour now belongs to the Galaxy S8) it’s still an exceptional phone, and with a price drop in recent months, it’s a more desirable choice than ever to some.

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is no longer the best handset in the world (that honour now belongs to the Galaxy S8) it’s still an exceptional phone, and with a price drop in recent months, it’s a more desirable choice than ever to some.

It’s a bigger phone, and while it doesn’t have the same nearly-bezel-less design of the S8 and S8 Plus, it’s still got a beautiful screen, the same decent battery life and excellent camera – and again, it’s now much cheaper with the prospects of dynamite Black Friday 2017 deals looking likely. As you’ll see from our editorially-chosen deals and customisable widget below, Three is currently leading the way, with its £30pm for 30GB deal being our top pick.

And if you need a little sweetener, all Carphone Warehouse plans for the Galaxy S7 Edge are now shipping with a FREE Samsung Gear VR Headset worth £99.99 (while stocks last).

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge | £41.99 upfront | 8GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £26 per month
Three is really on the march this month with some insanely good deals to make it the most attractive network for the S7 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge | £90 upfront (with 10OFF code) | Unlimited calls and texts | 16GB data | £36pm

How do I keep my old number?

Thankfully, moving your familiar old mobile number to your shiny new Samsung is relatively painless. If you’ve ever heard of a PAC code, this is when you need to use it.

All you need to do is give your old network a call. They’re obliged to give you a PAC – or Porting Authorisation Code – straight away. Once you have it, simply give your new network a call and they’ll do the rest…your number will work on your new phone the following working day.

To save you scrabbling around for the number to call to obtain your PAC code, check the list below for the digits you’ll need to contact the major networks:

EE 07953 966 250O2 0344 8090202Vodafone 03333 040 191Three 0333 300 3333ID 0333 003 7777GiffGaff 43431 from your handsetVirgin 0345 6000 789BT 0800 800 150Tesco 0345 301 4455Sky 03300 412 524Asda 0800 079 2732

The only slight chink is if you want to snap up one of the fantastic deals on our comparison chart, but it’s on your existing network. When that happens, your network won’t release a PAC code and you’ll be forced to take a new phone number.

At least you would have, if it wasn’t for this clever (if convoluted) work around. You have to order a free pay-as-you-go SIM from another network. Once you have it, you can tell your old network that you’re moving and they’ll give you that precious PAC. Then, once your number is registered to the substitute network, simply get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they’ll move your number to your new contract. Simple – kind of!

What’s the best mobile network?

EE, O2, Vodafone and Three hold the rankings as the big four networks in the UK, and you’ll see that they dominate our above comparison chart. Who’s offering the best price can vary from phone to phone, and even day to day, so how do you choose between them?

If you want fast and furious 4G, then your choice has to be EE. Its speeds are around 50% faster than the other major networks, which is really noticeable if you like watching films or football on the move. Talking of sport, EE gives you three free months of BT Sport when you sign up, as well as six months of Apple Music. The EE coverage checker will confirm how strong it is where you live.

O2’s best claim for your contract is with its Priority rewards – from cheap weekly lunch deals and pre-order privileges on gig tickets, to ad-hoc discounts and competitions. Plus, they have 1000s of wifi hotspots in shops and cafes that you can connect to for free and save your precious data. Use the O2 coverage checker to see whether you’ll be able to access 4G.

Vodafone seems to have been around since mobile phones were cumbersome bricks, but they remain a major player. Take a mobile contract and they’ll throw in your choice of a NOW TV Entertainment Pass, Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile subscription. And your plan will be available to use in more than 100 countries. Click to check if Vodafone covers your home.

Three is still the only network to offer unlimited data and it often features unbeatable deals on other big data plans – that makes them a natural choice of many a data hungry smartphone addict. But it’s a bit shy on the free promotions stuff, and 4G coverage isn’t as strong as the other networks – check whether your postcode is covered with the Three coverage checker.

Should I go SIM only?

A short, sharp stab of pain to your wallet could save you pounds in the long run if you consider getting the handset and contract separately. You can now get a brand new Galaxy S7 Edge for around £550. If you combine that with one of our best SIM only deals, you could end up saving money over the course of two years. We’ve seen some SIMs that cost only £5 a month. While others give you the flexibility of 12 month or even 30 day rolling contracts – ultimate flexibility!

How much data do I need?

When different tariffs vary by just a few pounds a month here and there, It might be tempting to just go for as much data as you can afford. But it’s worth really thinking about how much data you actually need – it could save you a stack of cash in the long run!

A good start is to check your phone to see how much data you’ve been using to date, and whether you have the tendency to use more than your current allowance every month. If you still can’t decide, the below guidelines should help:

1GB The bare minimum of data that you can bag on your plan. If you’re scarcely away from wi-fi, then this cheap option may just suit. But you’ll be surprised how much checking Google Maps and Facebook can use when you’re out and about – so choose wisely.2-3GB If your daily commute consists of social media and emails and you can’t get through a Saturday out of the house without checking the football scores, a bit of extra data is probably advisable.4-8GB Now we’re getting into the territory of Spotify and Apple Music lovers. We’d suggest opting for this more generous wedge of data if you want tunes on tap without the nuisance of data limits.10-16GB This should be a big enough allowance for most users. It’s stacks of data for streaming music, downloading podcasts and watching social media videos.20-30GB If your phone is your entertainment hub, then definitely consider a big data pan. You’ll be able to watch a few Netflix videos a month without due concern, as well as your music and gaming needs.Unlimited Three has changed the face of phone contracts when it started offering unlimited data. Only you can decide whether you really need infinite data – just be prepared to pay for it.

Do I need unlimited calls and texts?

Most deals these days automatically come with unlimited calls and texts, so you don’t have to worry your head about cutting calls short and waiting until the next month to reply to that text! Some cheaper plans still do apply a limit however – check your last few bills to make sure that your average usage won’t exceed them.

Even if you do like a natter but your dream deal restricts minutes, there are ways around this. Popular apps like WhatsApp, Skype and Hangouts let you make as many calls and texts as you like, using wi-fi or 3G/4G.

What Galaxy S7 Edge colours are available?

Samsung is spoiling you – it has put out six colour variants of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, so you should be able to get your hands on one that suits you. You can choose from Black, Gold, White, Silver, Pink or, our particular favourite, Blue Coral.

What operating system does the Galaxy S7 Edge run?

The Galaxy S7 Edge originally shipped with Android 6 Marshmallow, but is now upgradable to 7.0 Nougat. As well as improved apps for VR, a quicker settings menu and Doze Mode 2.0, the additional multi-window support is perfect for a phone with a screen the size of the Edge’s. Find out more on Google’s latest operating system with our comprehensive Android Nougat guide.

Samsung tends to roll out the latest iteration of Android to its flagship phones around five or six months after its initial release. So don’t expect to get Android 8 on your S7 Edge until early 2018.

What contract length should I get?

You don’t have a lot of choice here. Contract lengths on all mobiles pretty much exclusively last 24 months. Unless you want to buy the handset and get a SIM only deal (see more above), then you’ll have to commit to the full two years.

Should I consider getting a refurbished Galaxy S7 Edge?

We can see why you might be put off buying a refurbished Galaxy. When you’re making this kind of commitment in terms of time and money, you want to know that nobody else has had their grubby little mitts on it. But it’s most likely that ‘refurbished’ means that the previous owner simply changed their mind about the phone soon after buying it, so it’s still practically brand new – and the potential savings can be substantial!.

If you do spy an unbelievable deal on a refurbed phone, the main thing to make sure of is the warranty. Double check that you are properly covered for a decent length of time. A year’s warranty is preferable.

How does TechRadar make money from these deals?

If you buy a phone after visiting this page, TechRadar will be paid a small commission by the network or reseller you buy from. This money is paid by the site you buy from and thus does not affect the amount you pay for your phone contract. If you go direct to the site you buy from, you would pay the same amount.

While some sites out there will be paid larger fees for pushing people to specific deals that aren’t necessarily the cheapest, TechRadar will always find you the absolute best value. Trust and integrity is important to us, so if you ever think we’re not displaying the very best deals let us know.

Who are the resellers TechRadar feature?

Never heard of the likes of Mobiles.co.uk, Affordable Mobiles or Mobile Phones Direct? You’re not alone – they’re not necessarily household names and you’d only likely encounter them every couple of years when you buy a new mobile.

But as well as being completely trustworthy – we wouldn’t stake our reputation on companies that would give you the run around – they also tend to be a lot cheaper than getting your phone directly from the networks.
