Pay As You Go plans

If you hardly use your phone, or simply want to be free from monthly payments and contracts then a Pay As You Go SIM is perfect.

With a Pay As You Go SIM only deal there is no minimum term, monthly bills or contracts. With iD Mobile you're free to top up as little or as much as you want, whenever you want.

All iD Mobile Pay As You Go customers enjoy speedy 4G as standard, and can choose to add credit to their SIM directly or buy a bundle. Bundles are perfect if you tend to use the same amount of data, texts and minutes every month and can become reoccurring if you wish - removing the hassle of topping up every month. If you decide to add credit to your Pay As You Go SIM, you can use it as you please or even buy a bundle at a later date.

Why choose iD Mobile?

Data rollover

Roll over your unused data into the following month. Any rolled over data will automatically be used before the rest of your allowance.

Data cap

Data capping allows you to put a limit on your monthly spend. So if you do use all your data, or you're travelling to a country not included in those with free roaming, the cap will stop you running up a huge bill.


iD Mobile is an MVNO which piggybacks onto the Three network, so you can expect the coverage to be much the same as if you went direct with Three. Their 4G network covers around 98% of the UK population.


You are free to tether with iD Mobile (assuming your device supports this). Tethering is turning your phone into a personal hotspot so that you can use your mobile data allowance to get online with other devices like a laptop or tablet.

This can really chew through your data though so make sure to keep your eye on your allowance.
