Comments Off on The Best Nexus 4 Sim Only Deals

Google Nexus 4If you’ve been one of the lucky ones who’ve managed to order a Google Nexus 4 then not only should you be immensely proud that you’ve beaten the hoards but it’s now time to consider the best Nexus 4 Sim Only deals that will keep the costs down but allow you to use the Nexus 4 without worrying about extra charges from the networks.

So for those have bought the Nexus 4 for £239 (8GB) or £279 (16GB), let’s take a look at some of the best deals on offer for Sim Only deals on 1 month and 12 month contracts.


Nexus 4 Sim Only deals for heavy call, text and data users

Currently the best deal is Three’s ‘One Plan 1’ which is £25 on a rolling 1 month contract and includes unlimited data, 2000 minutes, 5000 texts plus 5000 minutes to any other three mobile phone user. Three will also send you a micro-sim no Blue Peter tasks for you.

Closely followed is Vodafone’s £26 Sim Only Deal on a 12 month contract. Vodafone offers 2GB data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts, 750MB of WiFi usage. Again Vodafone will send out a microsim instead of a standard SIM for your Nexus 4.

Both deals are competitive but the three One Plan just edges out for the vast majority of people, saving you £12 over a year but if you know your call usage is going to be greater or you could do with the WIFI when out and about then the Vodafone deal wins out.

Sim Only Deals Breakdown

Deal Cost/Month Mins Texts Data Contract  Yearly Cost
Three One Plan £25.00 2000 5000 Unlimited 1 Month £300
Vodafone Sim £26.00 Unlimited Unlimited 2000MB 12 Months £312
O2 Simplicity £27.00 900 Unlimited 500MB 12 Months £324
Orange Panther £31.00 1200 Unlimited 1000MB 12 Months £372


Nexus 4 Sim Only deals for light call, text and data users

For those that are not likely to exceed to their data usage then the best deals are from O2 and Vodafone.

Vodafone have a couple of plans suitable for light users, for £10.50 you get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB data. If the data limit is a bit on the low side for the Nexus 4 (or any smartphone for that matter) then they offer 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB for £15.50. On both these deals you also get 500 minutes to other Vodafone mobile users on 12 month contracts.

The O2 Simplicity plan for £16.50 gives you 100 minutes, 500 texts and 500MB of data on a 1 month contract. If you take it on a 12 month contact, you’ll get 300 minutes instead of 100 minutes. 500MB may not seem a lot but consider the amount of times you will actually be away from home WiFi.

Footnote: The Nexus 4 uses a non-standard Micro-Sim card (just like an iPhone 4 or iPad 3) so make sure your network provider can provide you with a Micro-Sim.
