So after my countless issues with Vodafone they have agreed to cancel my contract early and allow me to leave penalty free.
I'm now in a position where a SIM only is the best option rather than another contract as I don't need another phone.

Where are best to look for deals rather than the operator websites or are they the best to look at ?

    Depends on usage, I've gone "through the lot"

    What networks are you able to access? That's the first consideration.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)

    what's your usage?
    Which company usually with best signal in your area?
    For low usage, it probably be three mobile or delight mobile (EE)

    I've just gone for an EE sim only that gives unlimited minutes + texts + 4GB for just over £7 per month after cashback

    unlimited texts and as much data is the preferred option!
    EE and Three seem to be great around where I live ; o2 has no 3G in my area and Vodafone are just poor altogether.

    People have got into the habit of using their mobile to make calls, even when they are at home and even where they have a fully functional landline available.

    Now that landline providers are starting to offer inclusive calls to mobile numbers, there's the opportunity to increase the landline bill by several pounds per month and reduce the mobile bill by a far larger amount.

    Most landline allowances are capped e.g. free calls under an hour. The cost of inclusive mobile calls would still pay for a mobile with unlimited calls in many cases.

    Plus, WiFi calling from home is much better audio quality than the landline.

    All in, I pay £19.99 a month for a landline, unlimited broadband, and my 4G mobile contract (unlimited calls, texts and 4GB data), using the mobile over WiFi to call anywhere.
