What do I need to look for when I compare mobile deals?

When comparing mobile phone deals, consider what’s most important to you, for example do you need an unlimited data plan, or do you mainly use your phone for calls and texts? Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, you’ll find it much easier to compare relevant deals.

Should I choose a SIM-only deal?

If you’ve reached the end of your current mobile phone contract, but are still happy with your handset, it would be a good idea to consider a SIM-only deal.

SIM-only plans are cheaper than plans that include a phone, as you don’t need to pay off your handset on top of your monthly costs.

On top of this, the majority of plans are short, 30-day contracts, so you generally won’t need to sign up to a lengthy contract and can avoid nasty early exit fees. Switcher.ie’s SIM-only comparison can help you find the best deal for you.
