Over recent years there has been a growing desire from consumers to have more control over their mobile phone spend.
Many don't want to be forced onto high-price contracts in order to get the latest handset, nor do many want to be locked into a 24 month contract.
So we've built this tool to help you to create your own handset and SIM combination.
If you can't afford to purchase a handset upfront, both giffgaff and Unshackled offer the ability to get finance on handset purchases.
Obviously these cost more than buying the phone outright, but offer you the ability to get hold of an expensive handset without a massive outlay.
When picking a new contract it is important that you are aware of your typical mobile habits. Most people can make a broadly accurate guess, but to be sure you need to look at your recent usage.
We offer a bill reading service where we log into your mobile account and study your recent usage. To use it, simply click the "Read My Bill" button and enter your credentials.
Alternatively, we have built a list of common usage profiles. Pick one of these and away you go!
Some contracts are reduced in price if you already have services with the supplier.
For example, if you have BT Broadband, you save £5 per month on a BT Mobile SIM, or if you add an additional EE SIM to your account you can save money too.
Select any of the products you already have below to ensure that you find the best deals available.
The UK has four licenced network operators: EE, Telefonica UK (O2), Three and Vodafone providing services using a variety of mobile technologies.
There are a number of other companies that provide mobile network services such as Tesco, giffgaff and Virgin. These are known as MVNO (mobile virtual network operators) which lease network capability from one of the four licenced operators.
These are all listed below so you can determine which of the four network operators provides service.
