Want to save on your contract bill? A SIM-only contract may be your answer!

SIM-only deals

A SIM-only deal offers a package of minutes, texts and mobile data for a monthly cost, much the same as a traditional mobile phone contract. The difference, however, is that you BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) and don’t get a new handset; you get the SIM… only!

So, why should you opt for a SIM-only contract?

Well firstly, SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper, as with traditional contracts you’re paying a premium each month within your agreement to pay off the actual cost of your phone PLUS interest. So, with a SIM-only deal (i.e. without getting a new phone) you’ll save money each month. On top of the savings, going SIM-only means that you can focus on getting the best deal to suit your usage needs – rather than just dealing with the tariffs available to ensure you get the handset you want.

 

The Advantages of SIM-Only

SIM-only deals are fast becoming one of the most popular options when getting a new phone contract. Compared to traditional mobile phone contracts, SIM-only deals have many advantages.

SIM-only deals tend to be cheaper. New handsets are expensive, and as you’re not forking out for a handset with your contract, networks don’t need to charge you as much for their services, which brings your monthly payments down.

Another advantage of going SIM-only is that it’s easier to pass the credit check. If you’ve ever been turned down for a phone contract in the past, opting for a SIM-only deal might be the best solution for getting the phone and tariff that you want. Again, because mobile phone networks aren’t ‘renting’ you a mobile phone handset, it not only brings down the price of your contract, but it also makes you a low-risk candidate.

If you have a Dual-SIM phone, splitting your Voice and Data SIM’s is probably one of the most effective ways of saving money. By getting a SIM-Only Data SIM, you can take advantage of the benefits of massively reduced data prices while still keeping your voice line costs down.

 

How does SIM-only work?

SIM-only deals are simple: select the right package of minutes, texts and data that suits your needs, insert the SIM card into your phone, and you’re good to go.

Users also have one of two options when going for a SIM-only deal. Content with your existing handset? Because you’re only paying for a SIM card, you can pop your new SIM into your current mobile and immediately start saving the pennies! Alternatively, you can purchase the phone of your choice SIM-free, which is great for users who find it tricky getting past the credit check.

And did you know that you can still keep your phone number with a SIM-only contract, even if you switch networks? Just ask your assistant to port your existing cellphone number from your current mobile provider.

SIM only deals – GET DOUBLE THE VALUE, if you don’t take a phone

With smartphone technological breakthrough race having slowed down and fewer and fewer life changing innovations being introduced, more and more of us are happy to keep or old smartphone for that little bit longer and perhaps wait for the next big thing! So if you due for an upgrade or you contract has reached its term, (and you’re not itching for a new phone) you should seriously consider “SIM ONLY” deals from Vodacom. On the SIM ONLY Plans you get double the value of the plan, so for example if you are on a Smart M @ R319 per month you normally get 120 minutes, 300 MB data and 300 sms which is then DOUBLED so your monthly allocation is then 240 minutes, 600MB and 600 sms! Boing! Result!

If you due for an upgrade you can sign up for this value immediately, but bare in mind that should you decide to get a phone later in the contract period you would need to pay up. Our advice is to get to the term date of your contract and simply “migrate to a sim only plan” on a month to month basis, thereby giving you the value without locking you in and then when your ideal new smartphone arrives you are free to upgrade and extend your contract.
