Vodafone UK has launched the latest in mobile flexibility with our new SIM only bundles. As of today, customers who sign up for one of our 12 month SIM only bundles* will have the freedom to upgrade to a new Pay monthly phone bundle after only three months.

For customers that are waiting for the next big phone launch to upgrade or those that are happy holding onto their current phone, our flexible upgrade on SIM only really is the way to go. By taking advantage of one of these great value bundles, customers really will have the freedom to make the choices that work for them without being tied in to a full-term contract.

There’s no hassle, no early termination fees, and customers won’t have the remaining time from a previous agreement added on to the new one. Plus, they’ll get all the minutes, texts and data they need from just £9.50 a month. To celebrate this launch, Vodafone is offering an additional 25% off Red Value Bundles, so for £19.80 per month, customer can enjoy 3GB data, access to our 4G network**, unlimited minutes and UK texts as well as access to a choice of Spotify Premium, Sky Sports Mobile TV or a NOW TV Entertainment Pass as part of Vodafone’s Ultimate 4G Entertainment Package***.

Cindy Rose, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK says: “Our SIM Only bundles are already massively popular with customers, but we knew there was more that we could offer, so we have! It means that our customers now really do have the flexibility to upgrade to a phone or bundle that they want, when they want to. And with access to our ultrafast 4G network, our great entertainment packages and unlimited data for the first three months of a contract with Data Test Drive, customers really can enjoy more of what they love.”

About Vodafone UK

Vodafone UK connects people, businesses and devices to help our customers benefit from digital innovation. Our services span mobile, fixed line connections, home and office broadband and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.

We are part of Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest technology communications companies, with mobile operations in 26 countries, partnerships with mobile networks in 55 more, and fixed broadband operations in 19 markets.  As of 30 September 2019, Vodafone Group had approximately 625 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed broadband customers, and 22 million TV customers – including all of the customers in Vodafone’s joint ventures and associates.
