Many of the large supermarkets have moved into the mobile market, and ASDA is no exception. So if you’re interested in switching network and you’d rather not be on contract, request a free ‘pay as you go’ SIM card here.
The retail giant will send you a free SIM and information pack within 7 days. Two SIMs are available: Standard and Micro SIM, or Nano SIM (used in some of the latest handsets, such as the iPhone 6). The network has a number of 30-day bundles to select from. Each is aimed at different types of usage. For example, if you only call and text now and then, you may find a cheaper bundle suitable (such as the highly affordable £5 deal). If you talk on a regular basis and use data to surf the Internet, the £20 deal may be more suitable.
For coverage, ASDA uses the EE network to achieve 99% of UK locations. If you would rather not select a bundle, you can simply top-up on an ad-hoc basis and use the standard tariff (8p per minute, 4p per text and 5p per MB of data). Having said that, if you find yourself using the standard tariff on a regular basis, it can make financial sense to upgrade to a bundle.
Topping up your phone can be done in a variety of ways: either by using a top-up card (available to use at many popular stores), by telephone, text message, or by using ASDA top-up vouchers.
