Orange (Now EE) is one of the more expensive, but has some of the best coverage. 3 Network is almost always the cheapest, and has generally good coverage but its worth checking before you commit yourself to a contract. Supported networks in our database are:
- Talk Mobile
- 3 Mobile
Available Contract Types
There are a range of contract types available, ranging from one month Sim Only deals to 24 month contracts. The shorter the contract the less tie in you have, but the more expensivte the relative cost of the handset becomes. For example, it costs less per month to offset the £500 valiue of a Galaxy S4 over 24 months than it is over 12.

Which are the Most Popular Mobile Phone Brands
The most popular phones on the market at the moment are the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone5.
These are both excellent phones, but they are also the most expensive handsets on the market.
If you are looking for a good smartphone but want to save some money, try the older (but still more than capable) Samsung Galaxy S2 or the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.
Other good alternatives on Android are the Sony Xperia range and HTC. HTC do not seem as popular these days but they are great phones with far superior build quality to Samsung.
For Windows Phones (Windows Mobile) we recommend you take a look at the Nokia Lumia series or some of the HTC windows phones.
If you want a phone for email then a classic BlackBerry is still hard to beat. It may be that email is available on any / every phone nowerdays, but BlackBerry still does it better, furthermore you cannot approach the type speed of a physical QWERTY when using a touch screen, nor are touch screens as accurate. On top of this BlackBerry's "Old" style track pad is vastly superior when it comes to positioning your cursor at a particular piont in the text, so, if you want email dont write of BlackBerry just yet!
Mobile Phone Contract Types – Which is Best for You?
24 Month contracts are the cheapest in terms of offsetting the handset cost simply because the price of the phone is offset over more months.
18 and 12 Month contracts are the most expensive by the same logic, however the benefit is you get upgrades faster. If you pass your old handsets onto your children / partner then these contracts allow you to get more handets "into the family". Alternatively you can sell your old handset to offset the cost each year.
SIM Only Deals were once a niche product but have increased dramatically in popularity over the last year or two, probably due to the tough economic climate. These are by far the cheapest way to run your phone, but you will need a handset. If you are coming to the end of your contract and are happy with your existing model, or can pick a handset up cheap second hand from a friend or classified adds then these are a great option. Another key beneifit is there is no tie in with most of these deals, you only need to give one months notice of cancellation.
Pay as You Go used to be the cheapest and most flexible way to own a phone. Whilst they may still be the most flexible, if you are spending more than £8 per month on credit you would probably be better off with a SIM Only deal.
