    philatio, I have just clicked through to that offer from Uswitch. The page shows me £7.50, reduced to £5, plus up to £2.50 unused data discount.

    https://smarty.co.uk/plans/small?utm_campaign=awin&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=uSwitch+Mobiles&utm_content=Comparison+Engine&awc=10933_1563443695_940de34ddfb9f1d1335a9fb4c4f6b3d5

    PS, clicking through to the order page shows that the £5 price is only valid for the first 3 months

    philatio, their pages seem to be changing each time I look, but the offer is still misleading. Initially the page I linked to suggested that the price was £7.50, reduced to £5, plus the usual unused data discount, which could potentially have made the price £2.50 per month. Next time it showed £7.50 with free data for 3 months, reducing the price to £5. No unused data discount as the data is free. As they have a minimum monthly price of £5 on all packages, I think they may still be working on correcting the misleading info.

    Thanks for that, when i looked previously i read the bit that said - Tethering is not supported in Go Roam around the World destinations on any plans. - i overlooked the bit about Go Roam in Europe. Fab, no need for another SIM as both my husband and I have 12GB data on our phones. Love MSE for helping!

    Just double checked with Three chat and if there was anything else i needed to do and they gave me an extra 2GB free this month for being a lovely valued customer - bonus!

    To finhumfrey who reported issues with Smarty and EU Roaming. In addition to enabling roaming on your phone, are you aware that you also need to make a one off change to your phone's APN settings ?

    sorry all i forgot to include the price, its £10 rolling 30 day
  • Well that is quite a good option if we can cancel the contract any time, because I always get into contract trap and bear the consequences such as not being satisfied, yet bound to the contract :(

    Do any sim providers allow you to pay up-front for a year rather than monthly billing?

    I want to get as many recurring charges off my bank account as possible as I’ll be applying for a mortgage soon and it’s probably going to be a bit tight getting what I want.

    Maybe there is a pay-as-you-go plan that allows you to pay upfront and then lasts 12 months?

    You could always set your spend limit to £0 and then make a payment of 12 x £monthly cost.
