Can't find what you're looking for?
Uswitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to. To find out more about how our site works, click here. 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.

Cheap mobile phones

Finding a great mobile phone deal doesn't just mean getting the cheapest call and text bundle. For a lot of us, it's about having the perfect mobile phone handset for our needs.

The latest mobile phone statistics from our Uswitch study shows that over 50% of people surveyed would consider changing their mobile phone purely based on factors surrounding cost.

The perfect handset could have anything from a great camera, bright and detailed screen, a long battery life or 5G. One thing's for sure, we'd all like our mobile phone handsets to be free when we sign up for a mobile phone contract.

If getting a free mobile phone is a deal-breaker for you when it comes to finding a new mobile phone package, then you need not worry. There are plenty of ways to get a great mobile phone package with a free handset thrown in.

Is it hard to find a free mobile phone deal?

Free mobile phones are increasingly available with UK mobile phone networks. There's so much competition for you to sign up that companies like O2, Vodafone and Three need to offer really great incentives to secure your signature.

If you're looking for a free mobile phone with a 12, 18 or 24 month contract, you should be able to find just what you're looking for with a great deal on call and text bundles, too.

Compare the latest mobile phone contract deals Contract mobile phones

Not all mobile handsets will be free, even with a pay monthly contract option. Some of the newest phones on the market may come at a small upfront cost, even with a 24 month contract.

You will find with most mobile networks that the range of free mobile phones available will depend largely on the monthly price you are prepared to pay for your contract.
