Contract or Pay As You Go?

    Which one are you currently on with your phone? If you never had a pay as you go plan before, would you eventually switch to it? And vice versa.

    I've been thinking about switching to pay as you go when my contract ends next year. Because I barely make outgoing calls or texts. It would be nice to save more money too. Has anyone transitioned from contract to pay as you go and stuck with it?

    GiffGaff all the way 🙌🏼 You can set it up to purchase 'goodybags' every month that gives you the same benefits of a contract without actually getting tied into a contract, but if you want you can just use it as a pay as you go sim with v v reasonable rates. I often flip between the two, using pay as you go when money is a bit tight, but I mainly stick to the £12 goodybag (2GB data, 500mins, unlimited texts). Only downside to it is you have to buy your phone outright.

    I've always used PAYG and I don't think I'll ever change. I don't call/text much and when I use the internet I use wifi so it's much cheaper than paying every month.
