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.”
