I took the sim only deal with a £40 voucher at the end of 6 months.  Found the signal great, working well as we travel through Spain, no roaming charges.  Reached the end of the 6 months, they've written to me, and I've claim my Amazon voucher, absolutely no problems.  But what next, do I cancel this contract, and and start again to get another voucher, is it allowed, and how do I do it?
Thanks DG

    It's reasonably simple as long as you don't want to keep your number!
    Turn off 'auto top up' (I think that's what it's called) on your existing sim, which basically turns it into a PAYG phone, but, if you don't use it ....
    Go on the best available offer site and order a new sim.
    Away to go

    Auto renew needs to be switched off. Auto topup should always be off as you have been buying a monthly bundle you don't need payg credit.

    Nuclear option is pac the number to another network. The sim will stop working and payments will stop. You can pac the number back to a new lebara sim later if you have given that number out.

    I would like to keep the number it's Hubbys phone, and could be off for a day or two no problems.

    In that case you will need to PAC it to another provider for a while

    You can request a pac the day after your number transfers in, so you could request a port on Monday and if it completes on Tuesday you could request a port on weds and the number be back with your new lebara sim on Thursday, with a following wind.
    Rwg mobile do a sim with £1 credit (5p per min/text) for £1.
