Phones on contract from just £10 a month.
Mobile networks offer mobile phones on contracts which come with a bundle of minutes, texts, and data. This is usually over a 24-month period and may involve having to pay something upfront for the phone, or the device itself may be free.
This effectively spreads the large upfront cost of a new mobile phone over a longer period, which you can pay off in monthly instalments. This can be a huge bonus with the cost of modern flagship smartphones now well over £1000.
The advantage of taking out a pay monthly contract is that you do not have to pay as much upfront for a new smartphone – in fact, you will often get the phone itself free, which can make the whole cost a lot more manageable, particularly if you are after a high-end phone which would usually cost hundreds of pounds.
All contracts come with a bundle of inclusive minutes, data, and texts to use per month. Most modern contracts are taken out over 2 years, after which you are free to switch to a SIM Only deal to save money or upgrade to a new smartphone. Those looking for even more flexibility should consider a Pay As You Go phone.
The disadvantages of a phone contract are that you get locked into a contract for a 24-month period. If you want to leave your contract early and switch network, you will have to pay an early exit fee, which on Three is 80% of the value of the remaining contract.
If you buy a phone outright and get a SIM Only plan you can choose from 12-month or even 1-month plans giving you more flexibility. Those looking for even more flexibility can go on a Pay As You Go plan.
There are numerous reasons to choose Three, but one of the most important is the great value deals that are available with free phones starting from just £10 a month.
All plans on Three also come with 5G at no extra cost, so if you have got a 5G phone you will be able to enjoy breakneck speeds without paying a penny more.

Three offer both Contract phones and Pay As You Go phones. Three's Pay Monthly plans all carry a minimum term of 24 months and come with both a phone and monthly allowances of minutes, texts, and data.
Pay As You Go is just that, paying for the minutes, texts, and data that you need and topping up when you run low on credit. Unlike Pay Monthly plans there is not a set contract duration or monthly bill you just pay for what you need when you need it.
Absolutely, just opt for a SIM Only plan and stick the new SIM card in your old phone. Your phone will have to be unlocked or on Three though.
