Best Sony deals

If you’re after a good Sony deal on a mobile contract that will keep your monthly costs down, there are some excellent plans available.

We all have different needs when it comes to picking the right mobile contract. For example, if you’re a heavy watcher of HD video or use your phone to regularly stream music, then consider the best deals with larger data allowances. Alternatively, your main priority may be unlimited calls and texts.

So it should be easy to find a Sony contract that’s right for you:

Light user: ID Mobile offer some very cheap 24-month contracts on the Experia L and Experia XA1 handsets, if your data, call and text allowance needs are low.

Medium user: Consider Plusnet and Tesco Mobile plans for a moderate amount of data - say 1-2GB, and decent call and text allocations.

Heavy user: Even if you hit the data hard, there are still good Sony contract deals to be had. Check out giffgaff for unlimited allowances for data, calls and texts - on Sony handsets such as Experia L, Experia XA1 and Experia XA1 Gold.

And note that some contracts do require an upfront charge.

Cheap Sony deals

It’s easy to lose your way when trying to find the cheapest mobile contract deals. The monthly cost is the obvious place to start, but many contracts also include an upfront charge, which you pay when you first take out the contract. You also need to consider the overall length of the contract.

These three factors will determine the total amount of money you’ll pay over the course of a contract. But don’t worry - there are still loads of Sony contract options available to you, offering a wide range of tariffs that include different data, call and text allowances.

Take a look at our cheapest Sony mobile contracts - and don’t forget you can use the dropdown menus on the left to filter your results.

Find a Sony mobile contract that includes:

  • Short contract - If you’re keen to keep your options open with a flexible one-month contract, then Vodafone, O2, EE and iD Mobile all offer reasonably-priced one-month contracts, with different data and call allowances. However, they do all include an upfront cost.

  • Long contract - Spreading costs over a longer contract is a good way of keeping your overall contract cost down, as well as keeping things more manageable monthly. iD Mobile and EE both offer reasonably-priced 24-month contracts with lowish data allowances (500MB). Try Plusnet if you need a little more data (1GB), and more minutes per month.

  • No upfront charge - If a hefty upfront charge is a turn-off, you should consider Tesco Mobile, who offer a selection of Sony handsets - such as the Xperia L1 White 16GB, Xperia XA1 Graphite Black and Xperia XA1 Gold. Even though such contracts are sold with a ‘FREE’ handset, that cost is usually spread out over the course of the contract. That said, there’s still no pricey upfront charge to shell out for.

  • Unlimited data - For data junkies who don’t want to worry about a data cap, your best bet is giffgaff. A moderate upfront charge and reasonable monthly fee, on handsets such as the Xperia L Black and Xperia XA1 Gold, represent good value for money on their 12-month contracts.

  • Unlimited minutes and texts - If it’s all about the chatting and texting, try EE, O2 and Vodafone. There are some excellent Sony handset contracts available which will keep your monthly costs down - with varying data allowances. Though they do all come with an upfront cost.

Don’t forget to play around with the left-hand filters on our price comparison grid to find the right Sony mobile contract deal for you.

FAQs

  1. If I switch, can I keep my mobile number?

    Yes you can. All you have to do is ask your old network for your Porting Authorisation Code (PAC) before your contract is up. Then give the PAC - likely a nine-digit number - to your new provider and you’ll usually be able to use your old number within a working day.

    For more info, see our guide: Can I keep my mobile number?

  2. How do I switch mobile contracts?

    First, pick a new mobile contract by comparing different packages on our site, and click through to sign up to one that looks good.

    Then, simply contact your current provider to cancel, and switch to the new contract. Providers should walk you through the process when you sign up.

  3. Can I use my mobile phone abroad?

    It is possible to use your phone abroad, but before you can do so you may have to activate roaming with your network operator. Different countries incur different charges, but your operator should send you a message about roaming prices upon your arrival. And remember, unlike at home, you may be charged for receiving calls as well as making them.

    If you're travelling within the EU, you can use your usual monthly allowance at no extra cost - whatever network you're with.

    See our guide to using your phone abroad for more info.
