With our 30-day rolling SIM-only, you can cancel at any time, but you will need to give us 30 days’ notice.
If you have a SIM-only or mobile contract with us for a fixed term, such as 12-months, 24-months, or 36-months – you may cancel at any time within the 14-day cooling-off period. Should you wish to cancel after the 14-day cooling-off period, early termination fees will apply. We will, however, make every endeavour to reduce these early termination fees’ where we can, in line with Ofcom Guidance and Regulations.
Yes, we can provide spend caps for all major network providers, to prevent you from exceeding your monthly allowance. These are not activated automatically so you will need to let us know before activating your SIM. We typically suggest a spend cap of £5 or £10 depending on the purpose of the usage.
Currently, there are only a limited number of 5G mobile phones available on the market, but all of our SIMs have 5G capabilities.

SIM cards can store personal and sensitive information such as phone numbers, contact names and text messages so you wouldn’t want these to fall into the wrong hands. The easiest and simplest way to dispose of a SIM card is to cut it into several small pieces ensuring you cut along and across the metallic chip pads.
We do not recommend recycling SIM cards as they include metals that can be harmful to the environment.
You can set up a Direct Debit on your account to make monthly payments via the Client Portal. We also accept debit and card payments including American Express.
You can alter your payment method at any time during your contract.
You should not need to change any settings on your phone if you have an overseas plan or bundle in place. The network will automatically detect that you are abroad and change your phone settings. Sometimes the network may send a text with a setting update to be applied.

A SIM-only plan might suit you if:
It’s time to upgrade your phone contract but you don’t want a new device
You love your existing phone and want a great tariff for a reasonable price
You don’t want to be tied into a long contract and wish to be on a flexible plan for 30-days.
You’re waiting for a new handset to be released and need a sim only deal to bridge the gap until it’s available.
If you purchase a handset from MTH Networks, typically a 1-year warranty is provided.
With some handsets, however, the warranty length will be dependent on the manufacturer. It’s always good to double-check if the manufacturer provides a warranty when purchasing new equipment.
Wi-Fi calling is enabled and free of charge with all major network providers. Please ensure that the device being used is compatible with Wi-Fi calling.
If you have any issues with Wi-Fi calling, please get in touch with our support team for assistance.
If you are not sure whether a SIM-only plan is right for you – we have outlined the benefits for you below:
Flexibility: Unlike a standard mobile contract where you lock into a 12-month or 24-month contract, SIM-only contracts give you the flexibility of 30-day rolling terms. So, if you are unhappy with your tariff or find a better deal – you can cease the contract with a 30-day notice period and no penalties.
Cheap: A SIM-only contract will provide you with the best tariffs currently available on the market. Often these are inclusive of unlimited minutes and texts, with a generous data allowance for low prices.
Choice: We offer SIM-only deals from two of the major UK network providers – O2 and Vodafone. They offer a great variety of plans to choose from, and you’re free to shop around regularly or change providers if a better deal becomes available.
Simplicity: With a SIM-only contract, you can keep using your current mobile phone. You can also keep your existing phone number by porting it over too!
You will be notified before coming close to the end of your total allowance.
Once you have used up your data allowance, you can purchase additional allowances if required. Depending on your spend cap, you will be able to use any additional allowances at the standard rate charge.
We can provide you with a multi-SIM which gives you the option of Micro, Nano, and Mini SIM cards – so they are compatible with all devices. The standard sizes are:
- Nano SIM card (8.8m x 12.3mm)
- Micro SIM card (12mm x 15mm)
- Standard SIM card (15mm x 25mm)
We provide next working day delivery providing your order has been placed and dispatched before 3 pm Monday – Thursday. You also have the option to specify a preferred delivery day. We usually activate your SIM card the day it’s due to be delivered to avoid any delays in getting you set up.
All calls to UK mobiles starting with 07 and UK landlines beginning with 01, 02 and 03 are included in your bundle with our SIM-only and mobile contracts.
Any other numbers will be chargeable. Please ensure you review our out-of-bundle costs or get in touch with our support team to query the cost of a specific number.
Yes, your phone will need to be unlocked to any network provider unless it is already locked to the provider you are choosing.
Typically, unlocked phones allow you to shop around for the best SIM-only deals from a range of network providers.
As most of our popular SIM-only deals have unlimited data, we do not provide a data rollover as it is not necessary. However, our SIM-only with limited data options also do not have a data rollover.
