iD Mobile | 1 month contract | 500MB data | 150 minutes | Unlimited texts | £3.99 per month
This is the cheapest SIM only deal in the market at the moment. Ideal if you just need to be able to keep in touch or have an additonal phone. There’s only 500MB of data so you’ll want to keep app usage to a minimum unless you’re on WiFi but at less than £4 a month this is a nice cheap deal.

iD Mobile | 1 month contract | 1GB data | 500 minutes | Unlimited texts | £5 per month
If you need 1GB of data a month, plus a decent amount of minutes and texts then this deal from iD Mobile is only £5 a month. It’s enough data to keep on top of Facebook and Twitter each week and it’s only a 30 day contract so can be cancelled with 30 days notice if you decide you need more data later.
