LIFE Mobile

LIFE Mobile

Established in 2013, LIFE Mobile is one of the new kids on the mobile block - but don’t let that put you off.

It's got a lot to offer in the realm of SIM-only deals, with simple plans that offer good value whether you're an occasional texter or a smartphone addict. And since it uses EE's network, you can expect great coverage almost everywhere you go.

LIFE Mobile tariffs

What LIFE Mobile does best are simple, SIM-only deals. They all run on a 30-day basis, so you can change your plan around whenever you want.

The choices are:

  • Mini - A value plan for very light usage
  • Value - Perfect for average users
  • Everyday - More than enough allowance to cover most users
  • Maxi - For heavier users, featuring lots of data and unlimited calls and texts

They also all come complete with a Smart Cap that stops you from spending too much outside of your monthly allowance, eliminating any chance of bill shock. You can set it to whatever value you want, but the default is £5.

If you're having a particularly phone-heavy month, you've also got the option of adding bolt-ons for some extra data, texts, or calling minutes.

LIFE Mobile coverage

LIFE Mobile piggybacks on EE's network, so coverage is excellent - 3G alone reaches over 99% of the UK population. 4G, however, isn't available just yet, though it's likely to be on its way soon.

Remember to always check coverage in the areas you live, work, and spend time by taking a look at a coverage checker before you take out a plan.
