What is a mobile phone bundle?
A mobile phone bundle can simply be a package of extras you can add on to either your Pay As You Go or Pay Monthly mobile phone tariff. Mobile bundles are a really good way to make sure you get a mobile phone deal that's exactly right for you. These extras that you add to a package are sometimes described as bolt-ons.
The term mobile phone bundles can also refer to a mobile phone deal or offer that also gives you something else, for example, a mobile phone and mobile broadband bundle.

You will find that whilst all mobile phone networks offer mobile phone bundles as part of their mobile deals and offers, not all mobile phone networks will refer to these extras or special packages as mobile phone bundles.
