Uswitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to. If a deal is "promoted" on Uswitch's tables, then it has been lent additional visibility as a result of us securing exclusivity on a great deal, or a commercial agreement to showcase what we believe to be market-leading value to consumers.

Please note: Mobile networks may increase monthly prices in line with the retail or consumer price index each year during the length of your contract. Please refer to individual network's terms and conditions before signing up.

Where can you find cheap mobile phone deals?

According to a 2024 Uswitch study into mobile phone statistics and usage, over 51% of people surveyed claimed that cost was the deciding factor in choosing a new handset/device.

The latest phones, like Apple’s iPhone 15 and the Samsung Galaxy S23, can cost over £50 per month or more for a contract on some networks, so it can be hard to justify the expense.

With that in mind, we've found the cheapest mobile deals out there for you to compare in our table above.

We think you'll be surprised at the range of great mobile phones and affordable tariffs available.

Compare all mobile deals and offers.

Which networks offer cheap mobile deals?

Most mobile networks offer at least one standout cheap mobile phone deal, which is aimed at people who don't want to spend a lot of money on their phone bill each month.

One important thing to consider, though, is that low-cost mobile phone deals come in many forms.

'Cheap' phone deals might refer to mobile phone tariffs with cheap call rates, or it might be taken to mean cheap monthly payments on a great-value talk plan.

Selecting the right smartphone deal for you depends on your budget and your usage habits.

Below, we take a look at the sort of prices you can expect to pay when you sign up with the UK's major carriers and take a look at each carrier's selling points.

O2 mobile deals

You can get some great affordable mobile deals on iPhone, Samsung, Google and OnePlus handsets from as little as £20 per month.

Three mobile deals

Three's low-cost packages should come in just shy of £23 per month and feature great data allowances.

Tesco Mobile mobile deals

Like Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile is pitched at more cost-conscious consumers. Tesco Mobile's major selling point is that customers qualify for free Clubcard points each time they pay their mobile phone bill.

This can spell significant savings, especially in households with three or four Tesco Mobile handsets.

Pay-monthly deals from Tesco Mobile start from £9.49 per month.

giffgaff mobile deals

giffgaff call rates and allowances on its SIM only 'goodybags' plans are among the UK's cheapest.

The downside of the low-cost service is that there's no official customer support.

However, the silver lining here is that subscribers can cut more money off their bill by volunteering to help answer customers' questions in giffgaff's user forums.

Vodafone mobile deals

Like EE, Vodafone is known for premium pricing that reflects its network quality and generous allowances.

However, it could argued that with benefits such as free Spotify and Sky Sports, you're actually getting a pretty good deal for your money.

What if I want a cheaper deal but want to keep my existing phone?

One of the best ways to get a super cheap mobile phone deal is to opt for a SIM only deal from any of the major mobile phone networks.

SIM only plans, which cover only airtime, data and texts and don't include a new handset, are ideal if you're happy with your existing mobile phone and don't feel the need to upgrade to a newer model.

SIM only deals are becoming more popular because they allow people the ultimate freedom in handset choice as well as the chance to save money.
