Newly launched UK SIM only virtual mobile network aims to make communication simple, honest and affordable…

Submitted by on August 14, 2019 – 8:00 am |

Sim 1 There’s something exciting about opening the freshly sealed box of a new mobile phone every 12 to 24 months, but the mobile phone-inclusive contracts can leave you feeling trapped and cash-strapped. 

As the global mentality shifts towards greater sustainability, more people are choosing to keep their smartphones for longer and opt for SIM only deals that give them greater flexibility and affordability. 

Newly launched UK SIM only mobile network, i3 Mobile plans to make this easier and more affordable than ever. 

“We wanted to build a network that was simple, honest and affordable and give people more freedom to save money and increase their flexibility,” says i3 Mobile co-founder Racheal Campbell, “With a SIM-only deal you can choose the bundle that best suits your usage without having to commit to an expensive 12 or 24-month contract. If your phone is in good working order, you can adopt a more sustainable approach and simply continue to use it with one of our SIMs and enjoy the many benefits at the same time!” 

Racheal is part of a group of UK expats living in Europe, who founded i3 Mobile with the aim of building a network that could take maximum advantage of the ‘roam like at home’ benefits that have become more widely available in the EU over the past year. 

‘Roam like at home’ rules allow EU citizens to use their mobile phone while travelling in any EU country without having to pay any additional roaming charges or altering their existing payment structures. 

Becoming an i3 Mobile subscriber is as simple as signing up via the website and receiving your free SIM in the post. i3 Mobile’s plans use a payment upfront structure with no contracts, which alleviates the need for any painful credit checks or paperwork and allows users to purchase their plan of choice each month in advance. 

All i3 Mobile plans come standard with unlimited minutes and texts and data bundles ranging from 1GB to unlimited, all powered by the fastest 4G network with more coverage than any other network, with nationwide 4G & LT coverage across UK. 

But the most exciting benefit of i3 Mobile’s new service is the customer support. While most mobile service providers rely on call centres that leave customers hanging on hold or pressing endless options to speak to a representative, i3 Mobile offers 24/7 LIVE support via Twitter DM, Facebook Messenger, Web Chat at or Text Chat via SMS. 

“It was super important for us that our customers would be just one click away from a customer support representative,” said Racheal, “When you are living a busy life that involves a lot of travel your smartphone is your lifeline that keeps you connected to work, family and life. If something isn’t working, you need to be able to talk to someone instantly and not waste time on hold. Our online support system allows our customers to have instant access to a service representative from anywhere in the world at any time of day.” 

There’s no doubt that choosing a monthly rolling SIM-only service over contracts with major networks is a money-saver. i3 Mobile’s plans start at just £5.99 per month, which includes unlimited calls and texts and 1GB of data. For £8.99 a month, you can get the same deal with 2GB of data and for under £20 a month, you can have access to 45GB. 

The premier unlimited package goes for £24.99 per month, which gives users access to unlimited data, calls and texts. By comparison, a contract with iPhone 8 for the same monthly price would only offer 3-6GB of data. 

As part of its launch celebration, i3 Mobile is now running a competition via Facebook Messenger, to win a full year’s free unlimited mobile access.
