The table above shows iD’s most popular SIM-only deals, from the cheapest to the most expensive monthly cost. But remember, price isn’t the only factor you should consider when comparing SIM-only deals.

You need to find the right bundles for you. If you mainly use your phone for voice calls, you’ll need a large allocations of minutes. If you stream a lot of content, you’ll need a plan with a large 4G data allowance. Either way, with iD you can change your plan anytime online.

iD’s network coverage

iD is a mobile virtual network operator that launched in Ireland in 2015.

iD runs on Three’s network (which merged with O2 in 2015). Three says it has 96% population coverage, so almost the whole country is covered. This widespread network coverage and partnership with Three also means iD customers enjoy 4G access.

In a nutshell, if you have good reception from Three, you’ll have the same coverage with iD.

iD Mobile FAQs

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, this is called ‘porting’ your number and is a huge benefit - it means you won’t have to communicate a new number to all your contacts. Your new provider can sort out moving your old number to your new network when you’re signing up.

Can I upgrade or change my SIM-only plan?

iD is known as ‘The flexible network’. To begin with, you can choose the data, minutes and texts bundles that work for you, and if things change you can easily change your plan anytime you want using your MyiD online account. If you’re an iD bill pay customer you can also add-on your a phone to your plan, and it’s then possible to upgrade your phone as often as every 90 days,

How long will it take for my SIM to arrive from iD?

iD says you should receive your SIM within 3-5 working days of your order being confirmed.

You can track your order on the iD website, or by calling Nightline on 1890 321 890 and quoting your tracking reference number.

What are the advantages of SIM-only deals?

SIM-only plans are cheaper than deals that include a phone. So, if you’ve paid off your phone - and are still happy with your handset - you’ll make a saving by switching to a SIM-only deal.

If you’re out of contract, you can also move to a SIM-only deal with your current provider, rather than rolling on your contract which includes the cost of your handset - although it’s worth noting that some networks will automatically move you to a plan-only price once your handset is paid off, so make sure to check with your provider.

SIM-only plans are also a good way to check how a new network performs without locking into a 2-year deal.

You could also decide to buy your phone outright, and then go for a SIM-only deal - it may work out cheaper than paying it back as part of your monthly mobile cost, but this will depend on your provider.

What do I need to switch to an iD SIM-only plan?

In order to switch to an iD plan, you just need to sign up online. To do so, you’ll need photo ID, proof of address and bank details - for more info on this, check out iD’s requirements.

Once the order goes through, you’ll then receive an order acknowledgement email with details of your order, and iD will then send out your new SIM card

When your SIM arrives, give the iD Care Team a call on 089 700 1747 to activate the SIM and transfer over your old number. To complete this process, you’ll need:

  • Your phone – turned on and working, with your current network SIM in place, as iD will need to send you a validation PIN by SMS to confirm your number.
  • Your mobile number with your current network.
  • Your new iD SIM
  • Your temporary iD mobile number
  • Your account type with your current network, and account number if you’re on bill-pay.

The process should be completed within 2 hours, and remember you may also need to contact your current mobile phone provider if you need to unlock your handset.

What is a SIM-only plan?

Basically, a SIM-only plan does exactly what it says on the tin - you’ll get a SIM card, with an allocation of data, texts and minutes, but the deal won’t include a phone. Because you’re not paying off the cost of a phone, SIM-only plans are generally cheaper, and so you will save money by going for one of these.
