Vodafone SIM only deals work in the same way as any other SIM only deal. You simply choose the data package and price plan that best suits you, and then pop the SIM into your smartphone. Remember, SIM only does what it says on the tin – you don’t get a smartphone included in the deal. That means you must already have a smartphone ready to use.
You can currently get a Vodafone SIM only deal from as little as £7 a month with 6GB of data included. If that’s not for you, there are plenty of other deals to choose from. You can set pricing filters on our Vodafone SIM only deals page so you only see the price plans that suit your budget.

You don’t need to do anything specific to activate roaming, apart from making sure you have data roaming switched on in your phone’s settings, however you will need to be on a Vodafone SIM only deal that offers it.
Most of Vodafone’s SIM only deals offer roaming in 51 locations in Europe, and its more expensive plans cover up to 81 countries.
If you’re leaving your current network and would like to keep your number when you start your new Vodafone SIM only deal, then you just need to follow a few quick steps.
We have guides to show you what to do for most UK networks:
You will need an unlocked phone (or a phone that’s locked to Vodafone) to use a Vodafone SIM card. If your phone was previously locked to a different network and you’ve now paid off your contract, you can get the device unlocked easily.
When your SIM only plan ends, it will usually continue rolling on a monthly basis with your agreed terms. However, you’ll now be free to switch to a new Vodafone deal, negotiate different terms, or even jump to a completely different network.
If you've recently paid off your pay monthly contract and want to switch to SIM only, get in touch with Vodafone’s customer support team and inform them you’d like to change. They should then be able to offer you a selection of deals that will be cheaper than your pay monthly rate.
