As winter kicks-in and the snow begins to fall, we thought we'd warm you up with some of the best SIM-only and phone deals around.

Indeed, whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one, or you simply want to treat yourself to a new handset to cure those winter blues, we have everything you need to know about the cheapest SIM-only and contract phone deals on the page below.

Best sale SIM-only deals

If you want more flexibility than a phone contract can offer, a SIM-only plan will be ideal for you. One of the great things about going SIM-only is you’ll seldom be locked into a contract, even if you go for a one-month or a 12-month plan.

Plus, if you already own a phone you’re happy with, or can afford the money upfront to buy a new one, you’ll pay less in the long-term.

With that in mind, here’s a few of our favourite seasonal SIM-only deals:

Best seasonal contract deals

Taking out a phone contract means you can spread the cost of a new handset over time. These days, phone contracts can last anywhere between 12, 18 or even 36 months.

So, although you might end up paying more for a contract in the long-term, it’s a lot friendlier on the wallet than it would be to buy a phone outright.

Below is a list of our favourite mobile contract deals:

Best Samsung Galaxy deals

When it comes to Android phones, you won’t find much better than Samsung’s Galaxy range. With brilliant handsets like the Note 9 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 as well as three new phones rumoured for a mid-March release, you’ll want to find the best plans with unlimited data.

Best mobile deals for kids

Everyone remembers their first phone. For me, it was the inimitable Nokia 3310, complete with the original Snake game and, get this, a removable Pokémon phone case.

Of course, you can do a lot more on handsets nowadays. And it’s comforting to know that if your child travels independently to and from school, they’re carrying a reliable phone with them in case of an emergency.

Still, even phones that are a few years old don’t come cheap. And, once you’ve factored in things like data and storage, buying your child a phone is expensive. Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to save money and get your child a phone they’ll love.
