iPhone 5 SIM Only Deals – £6.90 For iPhone 5 Nano-SIM

[Updated: 17th April 2013] New iPhone 5 SIM only deals have been launched by Three, Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2 and Orange with the cheapest prices starting from just £6.90 a month for Three’s iPhone 5 nano-SIM only deal.

The Apple iPhone 5 uses a new, 40% smaller, nano-SIM card which means that the micro-SIM cards used in the iPhone 4s and iPhone 4 models (and the standard SIM in the iPhone 3G/3GS) cannot be used in the iPhone 5.

The change in SIM card means those who have a SIM-free or unlocked iPhone 5 will need to get a new nano-SIM only deal from one of the UK’s mobile operators.

Three’s (3) new iPhone 5 SIM only deals cost from £6.90 a month. This is for its Essential Internet 200 tariff which provides 200 call minutes, 5,000 texts and a 500MB’s of mobile internet data per month on a 12 month contract.

Those wanting more mobile internet and a flexible 1 month rolling contract can opt for the current best seller, Three’s Ultimate Internet 200 tariff (£12.90 a month) which offers the same 200 minutes and 5,000 texts, plus all-you-can-eat-data – which means you can use the mobile internet as much as you like with no hidden or extra charges.

Three (3) also has more all-you-can-eat-data tariffs available with either 600 or 2,000 call minutes, plus 5,000 texts a month, with prices set at £15.90 and £25 a month respectively.

Vodafone’s iPhone 5 SIM only deals on a 30 day contract start from £10.50 a month for 50 call minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB’s of mobile Internet per month, together with 750MB’s of BT Openzone Wi-Fi access.

Similar 30 day contracts from T-Mobile are priced from £12.50 a month for 100 call minutes, 5,000 texts and 250MB’s of mobile Internet access, while Orange offer 100 call minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB’s of mobile internet for £15.50 a month.

O2’s iPhone 5 SIM only deals on a 12 month contract are priced from £10.50 per month for 300 call minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB’s of mobile Internet.

One supplier who won’t be offering nano-SIM cards anytime soon is GiffGaff (they run on the O2 network) who in their own words on their community blog said yesterday: ‘We hope to have the nano-SIM cards ready for distribution in the coming months’.

So for now, it looks like Three (3) has the cheapest nano-SIM only deals for the iPhone 5 in the UK.

Three (3) are also a good choice as customers should get 4G speeds later this year on their iPhone 5 thanks to Three’s deal with EE’s parent company Everything Everywhere – who have the UK’s first 4G network.

Interested readers can find out more about 3’s iPhone 5 SIM only deals and order online at the Three.co.uk website. Delivery is free of charge and the nano-SIM should arrive within 1-2 working days. There’s also no need to wait in to sign for it.

4 thoughts on “iPhone 5 SIM Only Deals – £6.90 For iPhone 5 Nano-SIM

It’s also worth mentioning that the ability to tether other devices to your iPhone 5 is not included in the best selling £12.90 package and is only included in the ‘The One Plan’ at £25 pm.

To upgrade the £12.90 package to include tethering involves adding an additional £5 to the monthly cost, and this can be done at the checkout prior to purchasing.

If you have other devices such as an iPad (like myself), or find that you are mobile and want your laptop to go online (maybe you own a boat), the extra fiver is definitely worth it, furthermore it unlocks the entire potential of the iPhone, after all I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

Added to Jack’s wise comment…

Only the One Plan has free voicemail retrieval. All other plans charge you 30p per minute. This could easily add up every month.
