    I'm going to buy a 64GB iPhone 5, and I'm looking for the cheapest Sim only contracts.

    Ideally I'm looking for around 250 minutes, 5000 texts and 500GB, I found a great one for £9.90 (If I remember rightly!) but looking to se if other people know of any good ones!

    Course, I think it was on three :)

    I might be wrong though, but I thought it was awesome. It might have een 9.90 though, there were two I thought were really decent.

    be aware that 500GB of data will get used up if you use the phone a lot!

    Google sim only deals, there is loads of compare sites out there.

    I'm on o2, but i thin three and giffgaff beat the tariff i'm on.

    GiffGaff don't have Nano-SIM's though. Annoying.

    My vodafone contract is £10 p/month 600 mins, Ultd Texts, 1GB Data

    I asked for my PAC code to go to GiffGaff and this is what they gave me to keep me on a sim only deal.

    According to gizmodo, giff gaff told them they'll have nano sims soon.

    http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2012/09/have-you-managed-to-snag-yourself-an-iphone-5-yet/
    'The MVNOs have yet to announce their iPhone 5 pricing, but we’ve heard from GiffGaff that it’ll have nano SIMs on tap at some point soon, for those looking to go SIM-only.'

    ----------

    Personally I'm sticking on my current o2 sim-only 1 month contract, with unolocked iPhone 5. And gonna wait until all carriers have shown their deals, and i've seen EE's 4G costs.

    Oh you star! Thanks, been looking for prices.

    I'm in exactly the same position as you, O2 sim-only, my iPhone 5 is arriving unlocked next Friday. Going to crunch some numbers and see what the best outcome is.

    I'm still looking into all this too! Been into O2 to see if they have nano sims yet, and they don't.
    I'm paying £15 per month with a 1 gig bolt on for £10. So £25 total per month.... But this seems a lot of money compared to some of the other tariffs out there....

    Virgin and 3 do Unlimited Data packages along with Unlimited Texts and 300 minutes for about £12 per month, but not being on either of them, not sure what their coverage is like.

    I'm with Vodafone, and have 3 months unlimited data (goes to 1Gb month after 3 months), 300mins and unlimited texts for £15 per month. Chose to stay with Vodafone as their coverage and data speeds are awesome

    I just signed up to Vodafone sim only. 300 mins, unlimited tests and 500MB for 5.50 a month after cashback. Better than my ending o2 contract 100 mins, unltd texts and 500mb for 31 a month.
