iD Mobile's best SIM only deals
Our favourite current iD Mobile SIM only deal
We'd say the best SIM only plan iD Mobile are selling this May is their 1‑month 16GB deal below, which comes in at £8 a month and includes unlimited minutes and texts too:
While this is a good enough deal to make it into the best of iD's SIMs, you can beat it for price (even if you definitely want a provider that uses the Three network). Here's which other networks can beat it:
£12 for 100GB is iD's next best SIM deal in May
To get more data, you might like the £12 SIM only deal running on iD Mobile at the moment. It's a 1‑month plan, which comes with 100GB data, unlimited minutes and texts too:
It's a good enough deal to get into iD's best SIMs but you can actually get a lower price for a similar plan elsewhere, even if you definitely want it to use the Three network. See where you can get it for less here:
There's also a nice 5GB for £6 plan with them this month
If you don't want so much data, we'd say this is one of iD's best deals on SIM only this month too. It's a 1‑month plan, comes with 5GB data, unlimited minutes and texts for £6 a month:
It might not be the lowest-cost SIM only deal with 5GB data or more on the entire market but if you're sure you need a SIM using the Three network, it is the best-priced. Here are the networks offering it cheaper:

In our iD Mobile review, we said they were a low-cost provider with full access to Three’s 5G network and the same coverage and speeds as being on Three directly. We also liked that they offer WiFi calling and 4G calling.
You can choose either a 1-month, 12-month or 24-month contract on iD. It tends to be the case that longer contracts cost you less per month. But it’s still worth checking to see what their best current deals are.
iD Mobile have competitive prices on their whole range of SIM only plans. They can often be the cheapest way onto Three’s network (alongside SMARTY) depending on what offers are available.

iD Mobile will send you a physical SIM within 2-3 working days. The package that arrives will have each size of SIM card to fit any phone. They don’t offer eSIMs (see the networks that do).
When you order anything online you have 14 days to get a full refund, and this is also the case for SIM cards. Here’s how you can get a refund if you’re unhappy with your SIM.
No matter if you take a 1-month, 12-month or 24-month SIM only plan, you’ll have to pass a credit check to get on iD. If you’ve failed a credit check with them you can take a payg bundle which you pay for up front.
If you’re switching from one network to get onto iD Mobile then you can keep your number by requesting a PAC from your current provider to give to iD. Here’s more info on how to do that.
